Just a hypothetical question

No. Why would she play in a country where someone can try to kill her in front of thousands of witnesses (millions since it was taped) and then that person remains free. There are people who went to jail because they hurt a dog or a cat. Monica should respect herself and stay out of Germany.

a GS event can certainly be held successfully even without her presence.

Madame Oracene Williams could certainly teach the French & Belgian crowds on how to upgrade their respective primitive behaviours during a tennis match.

The people have spoken. And I suspect they are quite correct.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

in the future, I hope she will allow her children to play in Germany granting that they'll be as good as their Tennis Mama.

She didn't play the Chase when it was held in Germany.
