Recent Controversy

Mods, I don't see why we can't discuss the recent controversy between a couple of ATP players (who for now shall remain nameless) when it is news, and is sensationally spicy water-cooler material and directly involves a WTA player (who for now shall remain nameless). It's like each of the Forums are verboten to even acknowledge the other. Can we at least have a thread about why we can't talk about it?

Re: Recent Controversy

Especially given its all in the public domain, it even made Irish sports news and tennis outside slams never does.

Re: Recent Controversy

Seconded

"Sometimes we've wondered if Martina actually knew what she was saying. Maybe it was her age or inexperience or something got lost in the translation. But I don't know. She comes out with something astounding and then just stares at you like, 'What did I say?' But then she'll have that glint in her eye."

Re: Recent Controversy

I remember when threads about Wozniacki's "racist" imitation of Serena a few years ago were shut as well.

Re: Recent Controversy

I find the thread closings particularly puzzling as the issue at hand specifically involves a WTA player. So I have no idea why this shouldn't be discussed here.

Re: Recent Controversy

I choose to believe that Donna is left out of this of respect, and let it be. Mods, please close this.

Re: Recent Controversy

When Mirka (ex WTA player) 'sledged' Stan in a match, 6 months ago, it was headline news EVERYWHERE, yet any thread on here was closed. I've long given up trying to understand any method to the mods madness.

Re: Recent Controversy

No room for those types of threads in GM. We need room for quality threads like who has the nicest ass, 100's of bold predictions for the US Open, Serena threads, making fun of Bouchard threads and Alexandra Stevenson updates.
