Re: Ben Rothenberg Blocks Sloane Stephens’ Coach Sven Groeneveld On Twitter
Sven was sticking up for player in David Goffin, who has a tremendous reputation in the ATP locker room as being as professional as there can be.
You have, sadly, a "prominent" tennis journalist basically accusing David Goffin of "tanking."
That's a MASSIVE charge (with no clear proof other than scoreboard) for anyone to make, yet alone a "journalist" like Rottenberg and threat to his prize money, which is HUGE as a Slam quarterfinalist.
Meanwhile, Bernard Tomic's best surface has always been grass. He made the Wimbledon quarterfinals at 18 (and played Djokovic real tight in a fun 4th setter) and should always be, at least, a tough player to play against on grass. Tomic should NEVER get crushed by anybody on grass, let alone in the first round.
It was completely shameful again that Tomic went out in the first round like that again.
Clearly Rottenberg was indeed watching too much Eurovision, since it has further blinded his vision to actually see things properly.
