Ben Rothenberg Blocks Sloane Stephens’ Coach Sven Groeneveld On Twitter

Ben has lost his mind....Blocking a high profile WTA coach

And of course his partner in crime sticks up for him

Yes, i think it’s actually his worst tweet ever, unless he’s crazy trolling to get attention.

Top fishing IMO.

This is great for Naomi, Kiki, and Al Nabhani (who should really be contesting club matches against Alexandra Stevenson), so everybody wins!
Mladenovic wins 63 63

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

Umm... Tomic and Goffin weren't even playing the same opponent (in which case I still wouldn't necessarily make the comparison). So I am not sure what the point is, in counting how many games each won in two completely different, random matches.

Can someone please come and collect Benjamin?

Not that I support Rothenberg in general, but he got a point here. Goffin barely tried after he was broken back in the 1st set.

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

Goffin could of won the first set, played his heart out. Djokovic is a human backboard, nothing Goffin could do after he was broken, lost his fight.
Ben seems to hate the ATP and some WTA players, I wonder why he still follows the tour and not write a tell-all book or something.

Perhaps. 100% fine is absurd and should be illegal. He showed up, after all.
