Well, I don't know about the USTA, but the players? They are practically kissing her feet whenever they are asked about her. And the WTA is working it's ass off to promote tennis in all corners of the world which will no doubt result in many more non-whites picking up a racquet and eventually having a professional career. The same for golf where most of the leading female players are actually Asian, not to mention Tiger on the mens side. Doesn't sound very racist to me.

When you consider what's happening in Football (or Soccer) where a huge debate and concerted effort is made to try and stamp it out, and I'm not trying to make the argument that "Tennis is less racist and thus better than" but it's one of those things where even this kind of discussion clouds the issue, because we are just discussing a possible motive of those who think this is racist. I'm hoping this will be one of those one day non-story things, the dailymail's already removed it from their front page.

Re: Articles and Interviews

Nothing new then.

I was expecting a juicy debate about Caroline being responsible for the financial crisis, and global warming... A bit a of a let down after the cries of her supporting a dictatorship and tyranny the last time.

Re: Articles and Interviews

This whole thing is a farce. Its Andy Roddick's impression. He's the person who made this a regular part of tennis exhibitions.
Djokovic, growing up in Serbia, and Caroline, in Denmark, would never know this was a hot topic for some people.
If it really was a hot topic for some, they should have their outrage aimed at Roddick.


That Caroline's name is in this is nonsense. She's doing a Roddick imitation of Serena, that Serena knew Andy was doing for years.

This whole thing is so stupid, and all it does is have some nontennis people insulting Caroline's character.

Thats where the insulting is, at Caroline, by hateful people who dont even want to admit this is Roddicks impression of Serena that other players copied because Roddick kept doing it with no criticism and positive crowd reaction.

Well, it makes no difference anymore at this point. They have found their chosen victim, and now the're gonna let her have it. And there's really nothing that she can do to stop this. If she apologizes those so inclined won't accept it as sincere and say that it's only a matter of damage control on her part. And at her next press conference she'll be asked about it and every word she says will be put under the microscope, and her words will be taken out of context, explained as "she said this, but she really meant that", and so on. Every newspaper, magazine, blogger and internet crazie will spin it in a way that fits his or her agenda. In short, she's fucked no matter what she does.

Indeed. Now some pundits try to explain it with, Caroline didn't know growing up in Denmark. Well, where the hell was all this condemnation towards Roddick, as he's been doing this impersonation for the last 5 years or so. And he's not grown up in Denmark.

Well, not even Serena herself knows. If so she would have warned Caro that while she doesn't have a problem with the act herself she was going into some dangerous territory in terms of how sensitive this is in some circles.

Re: Articles and Interviews

I'm going to guess she will apologize to anyone who was offended. And say that she grew up in Denmark, and saw an American, Andy Roddick doing this imitation many times. So Caroline didnt know there was some negative attachment to it.
But she didnt create the impression, she saw other players do it and no one complained.

I think she will say something like that, which is the truth

Re: Articles and Interviews

Hingis said something that blew up years ago. She apologized and said she didnt grow up in the US and didnt know, and no one remembers it now

Yes, but in those days the internet was not yet as huge as it is now. And Hingis has said so many things about so many people that some of her comments have fallen between the cracks. Plus, Hingis was very witty and she got away with a lot of stuff because everyone thought she was funny.

Me too. I wish I could give her a hug, but it is what it is.

On a different note, who runs her website? There's still the (in)famous towel picture on the front page. Definitely not very smart.

There is much more social media, but Caroline did nothing that wasnt done many times by Roddick. So those attacking her are just phonies looking to spew hate.

Thats why I think she should apologize to anyone who was offended. Say she just did what other players did in exhibitions many times, and growing up in Denmark, she didnt know there was anything wrong with it.

This whole thing is stupid. Caroline did nothing wrong and most of those spewing hatred are just goofballs, or they would be hating on Roddick, and not even him, but people who are really doing racist things
This is nothing, its happened many times before in exhibitions by other players
