Re: USTA Reinstates Taylor Townsend's Funding (article)
I never said they didn't decide to not fund her US Open trip. I simply said that it was you folks put the "OMG, he's such a jerk, he called her fat" label on the whole story and it was you folks and the tennis greats who "meant to stand up for her" (but really did the opposite) who really humiliated her by indirectly calling her fat over and over again by putting those words or thoughts into his mouth without him or the rest of the USTA ever doing so themselves.
Also, the one who broke this whole story is to blame for blowing this whole thing up bigger than it really is. I still think there's a strong possibility it was someone from Townsend's surroundings who whispered this whole thing to the media first. Stronger possibility than it being someone from the USTA anyway.
Whether or not it was sugar coated, the point remains......i could say to my girlfriend "hey i think we should seperate because you are unfit but i believe at your best you would be truly amazing" it still sends the SAME MESSAGE regardless of how it was worded.
