Venus getting backlash from ATP & others over championing equal prize money?

This little "court" controversey that is
much ado about nothing seems as though
it's being motivated by more.

Plus, she is barring the brunt of
this storm, despite Mirza saying no as well.

We see sexism and racism being
introduced under falsehoods
and rumors.

I dont see sexism and racism here... simple Layton Hewitt is local hero, and also played vs upcoming star Djokovic and Venus vs Mirsa is "one sided" match for crowd. That Hawitt/Djokovic match MUST BE at Rod Laver Arena so i dont see noting wrong b/c organizers try to remove Venus/Mirza match from Rod Laver to Vodafone Arena. Also i understand some reasons why they dont accept that - and this is end of story for me about this "case".

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

For sure.

I'm rooting for Venus to go all the way so they get even more pissed off.

You know there's a good match on right now, might even be the best for this year.
I'm just saying maybe it's not the place or time to discuss this.

You always have the choice to walk away from the computer and watch the match and once it is over come here and discuss this topic all you want, right ?

My labtop is in my bed as I'm watching the match.
It's tough to walk away from my computer.
When I'm hugged up against it at nighttime, it almost feels like a real man.
