Re: Ben Rothenberg Blocks Sloane Stephens’ Coach Sven Groeneveld On Twitter

Oh so he's upset Tomic got fined for tanking and thinks Goffin should be too?



What does Groeneveld have to do with that? Isn't that up to the ITF & Wimbledon officials?

Looks like off-season is back on the menu.

Rothenberg's tweet is absurd, but that reply by Groeneveld was bad too. I think Rothenberg could find it as a homophobic joke, that's why he banned him.

Am I missing something, or being slow? What does Groeneveld even mean when he talks about Eurovision in response to Rothenberg?

As for Rothenberg, he's a hack who does this stuff for attention. He knows he's not a real journalist.

Help us, Osaka, you're our only hope.

I believe Rothenberg has been known to tweet rather feverishly on the subject

Re: Ben Rothenberg Blocks Sloane Stephens’ Coach Sven Groeneveld On Twitter

I think that we are witnessing huge dive of a tennis as a professional sport.

There are huge inconsistencies, wrong decisions, sometime biased decisions, non transparency and enormous business interests.

It is basically shady corporate world but without real accountability.
Normally mafia jobs are done like that, not such noble sport as tennis like to present itself lol.

So here we are, Tomic is nerd and anti professional player. But who can blame him. His game is ideal for grass but Wimbledon is done as grass tournament for good. Officials are denying obvious and science and math can and are giving contrary facts to their claims.

So who is there to say that Goffin is not eligible to be fined... and fined according to which criteria? We have huge problem in tennis. It is too late to pretend that all is right and ok. It is not. There is systematic corruption on highest level.

I never imagined I would see it dropping so low.

Meanwhile, what does this even have to do with women's tennis? This was Tomic's flop-ass R1 after all.

A lot of. In the past I saw the examples of mocking lgbt people by others using Eurovision contest that's why it was my first thought. I don't know why the ban happened, but Groeneveld's response had to be really painful for him if he banned him without an answer. Maybe Rothenberg did it, because he's just a huge Eurovision fan. For sure it was very childish reply, Groeneveld wrote it like a TF troll member.

Why is this on GM? I get that Sven is Sloane's coach, but this literally has nothing to do with women's tennis.
