Kadir does not need to sexually assault anyone. He just has to speak. Women respond well to a man with some bass in his voice. He is like the Barry White of the tennis tour.

If this is true it certainly isn't funny. It would mean 1) something rather unacceptable at the very least would seem to have happened to Melinda Czink and 2) the tournament in Birmingham might actually end up not happening. And goodness knows what other ramifications this could lead to. I really hope this is just a very unfunny attempt at a joke.

I guess by sexual abuse they meant "Game, set and match Miss Erakovic" that Czink heard from the upmire yesterday. Czink probably "felt violated" after that.

Not reading Italian, and trying to follow this thread, is the issue sexual abuse--which would usually involve a minor, I don't know how old Czink is, sexual assault, which would mean something up and including rape, or sexual harrassment, which would seem to be the most likely scenario and could be anything from inappropriate comments during a match to an offer to make favorable calls in exchange for sex or something like that.

I am :scratch: by what's under discussion, let alone if it's true.

This is sickening. I have the feeling this all started by some idiot on the internet trying to make a horrible joke about Melinda's appearance (and judging by the reaction of some posters here, the idea of someone choosing to assault Melinda over other players is supposedly funny :fiery:) and somehow an actual tennis site reported the joke thinking it might be a serious story.

And now that so many players have been tweeted this news, I hope this doesn't get back to Melinda and she doesn't understand the malicious intent behind it.

This reminds me of the fake Akgul story about how she was going to quit tennis for basketball because she was being made fun of and picked on by the other players.

Melinda is one of the meanest, rudest and most ferocious players of the WTA tour. She won't start crying in a lonely corner, do not feel bad for her.

Or maybe she's just misunderstood, as nearly all loners/introverted people tend to be by those who aren't.

I've never seen her be rude in any way to anyone who approached her. And this isn't just my own personal experience. I remember her chatting at length with a few older spectators who were watching a match alongside her once.

Many posters here should feel ashamed of themselves thinking that only "hot girls" are victims of sexual abuse and sexual assault and that it is EVER something to laugh about, even if it is unlikely true. I have seen a lot of ignorance and stupidity on these boards the last 5 years, but this really tops it all.

I can only talk about my personal experience. I worked in a WTA tournament some years ago and after her 1st round match when shaking hands with the other player, Czink gave her a extra strong handshake while twisting her own arm. The other player was left speechless and came almost in tears to the tournament office. After the WTA supervisor talked to the umpire she called Czink to her office. I obviously did not attend that meeting so I cannot talk about what was going on in there but I saw Czink leaving the office a while later furious and slamming the door. That very same tournament Czink was very rude and even kinda agressive when arranging court practice, asking for practice balls or towels.

This is not something I've heard of but things that I have seen with my eyes. Maybe she was having problems or whatever but she was a big time bitch those days.

One day at the French Open, I was watching above a fence to check a score, and so Czink did. I obviousely disturbed her sight and she decided to catch my shirt and get me out of her way as easily as if I were a little mouse. That was such a cool sexual experience with Melinda. :inlove:
