The Obziler Controversy .. PATHETIC!

Here is something you all may want to read, about the firestorm in Morocco about the "scheduled participation" of Tsippi Obziler (from the evil country, I suppose).

http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/411070.html

I mean, the girl was simply in the qualifying list! .. Loooking at the qualifying draw, it looks like she did not go there.

But these people down iun Morocco opposing a tennis player showing up there, should get a life!

Tzipi decided last week to pull out of Casablanca, and she's going to play 50K tourney at Dinan.
She was pissed off with WTA attitude, but said she doesn't want to be distracted by this controversy...

I checked the draw and there were no Israelis there...

That was just to make sure, as I guess if it had happend, the Israeli media would have had a meal on it...

That is very aggrevating!
But I guess for her safety, it was best that she not go.
Too bad it has to be that way.
