Re: More on Zina's law suit

I do find it interesting that Mary Joe got a 3 yr contract for more money while they gave Zina only a one year.

Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!

Captain Garrison was 5-5 in Fed Cup matches and never reached a final.
Exactly. USTA wants results and she wasn't bringing them. USA has won Fed Cup 17 times and yet she couldn't get us to one final.

Quote:
Garrison alleges unequal treatment relative to her counterpart, U.S. Davis Cup captain Patrick McEnroe – specifically unequal pay and unequal resources. She also argues that while she was never given more than one-year deals, Fernandez, with as much coaching experience as me, was signed for three years out of the box – and at a salary higher than Garrison's, the lawsuit alleges.
He has to coach more matches as the Davis Cup is 4 rounds instead of Fed Cup's 3, and he was actually getting USA good wins and won Davis Cup in 2007 of course he deserved more money.

Re: More on Zina's law suit

Ofcourse they will like past that fact...people only read what they want to read. They also look past the comment that was made to Zina that her face was not the one they really wanted to portray at the captain of the team....umm I wonder what they meant by that comment.

Why is this at all surprising? The well of good coaches is running dry, and they are quite desperate to replace Zina after her pathetic effort. They probably had to put up a better contract to get a good coach.

Re: More on Zina's law suit

Interesting dilema for V&S. If they play for Fernandez ( and most likely will win), this will vindicate the USTA in their decision to hire Mary Jo, since she will come accross as a winner, and by extension, Zina...a loser. On the other hand, V&S, as a show of solidarity, could choose not to play, which means MJ's record will most certainly look like Zina's after 3 years.

Both Vee and Ree have spoken highly about playing one last Olympics which is 3 years from now. The rules have always been that you must play Fed Cup to be choosen for the Olympics. So, are V&S going to boycot for the next 2 years and then "suddenly" discovers their patriotism conveniently in time for the London Olympics, which I suspect will be played on grass? Certainly, that would be transparently seen as opportunistic, and would MJ ( assuming it's totally her choice) choose them after being "dissed" for 2 years? And if V&S maintain their current form, how do you tell tennis' greatest superstars, "sorry, there is no room on the team for you"?
This story could have the makings of another soap opera, not unlike the one in Australia 2000. Stay tuned.

So true. The dynamics are interesting. Maybe if in some way Zina is able to make peace with the USTA then V&S will be in a better place to make decisions about playing for MJF, if indeed, one of their reasons for not playing has to do with Zina's situation. I don't know that it does. They have played Fed Cup how many times in their careers?
