WTA #326 Andrea Koch-Benvenuto involved in scandal, punched 3 officials

Apparently Andrea was dating a psychologist from the Chilean Olympic Committee and it ended up not so well. She went to COC's offices and ended up having a big fight and punching three officials, including her boyfriend. Now her funding is in danger.

I hope she makes it to WTA level and loses her nerves against a couple of girls I have in mind

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

She's 27, has been a journeywoman for years playing weak events all across the world and still hasn't broken top 200 so don't get your hopes up

Btw, I'm actually surprised she's funded by the Olympic committee. Were they hoping to get her in the Olympics this year?

She was hoping to get a WC but the Committee didn't request one for her.

Btw she said she was sorry about the incident and will accept any action taken against her, she also said that all of it was her fault for mixing her personal life with her work and training.

Never heard of this woman. Might be time to pursue other options in life.

Yeah MMA.

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.

The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: Cibulkova (President), Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson.
