I agree.

Players have no say where they are born and if you want to host an International event you need to take the players regardless of where they're from.

What if the World No 1, 2 and 3 were Israeli?

How can you pick between so called good and bad countries? Who decides? What if the player doesn't agree with their country's politics? t would be a disaster for any sport if countries tried to do that. It's illogical and unfair.

Monica Seles Superstar. Her fans never forget.


Players I root for now: Heather, Laura, Lucie, Marion, Serena, Simona, Svetlana, Venus, Vika. And Caroline.
Doubles and Mixed Doubles are fun and underrated.
