This has been known since around the Australian Open time.

Re: Zina Garrison sues USTA

I am not sure on what ground she is suing.

But I know this. She was a failure as a Fed Cup captain.

Re: Zina Garrison sues USTA

she has had a major chip on her shoulder for a very long time. Sure there is occasional racism in tennis and it is repugnant but she did this as a player, calling Pam Shriver racist after a match which was totally unfounded.
She is out of the job because she didn't achieve, albeit with limited resources. Does it not occur to her it might be for some reason other than being black ?

What's next ? Billie Jean claiming she had to step down because of lesbian discrimination ?

That is why I stated "I do not know on what ground she is suing".


And I am not attacking her. I am just stating she was a failure as a captain.

I don't think there will be much disagreement on that.

Do you know for sure she is suing on racial discrimination ground?
You seem to be overplaying it. Do you have any proof
And what does Pam Shriver accusation has to do with this? Just to bolster you racial angle of the argument you're making?

Re: Zina Garrison sues USTA

Fed Cup is about the team spirit.
If you suck, you do what's best for the team and let someone else do your job in a better way. Aka convincing the WS to show up.

The Pam Shriver incident has a lot to do with it IF this is what Zina is suing for.

If Zina has been racially discriminated against then I hope she wins the case. But you cannot deny she has a history of claiming racism when it isn't there. Pam called Zina "stupid" during a match after an incident and Zina took this to be a racial slur and stated Pam had said this insult because she was black.

Look, it is not clear to me or anyone else that she is suing on racial discrimination ground.
For you to imply that it is case because Zina had an incident with Pam Shriver when Zina called Pam racist is disingenuous and clouding the issue.


As you can see in my previous post, I did not like her as a Fed Cup captain.
