Garrison had a well-publicised racial discrimination lawsuit that was settled with the USTA in 2009 after she argued that as the Fed Cup captain she was paid a lower salary than the Davis Cup coach, Patrick McEnroe, and her successor, Mary Joe Fernández.
“I was told at the time: ‘That doesn’t really happen.’ No one would really back me up. People in the background would tell me stories but nobody was willing to come to the rescue. There were only two people in that time getting ready to go on record and that was Billie Jean King and Venus Williams.
Honestly the ATP is by and large trash. They are all generally part of a very privileged class. The American male players are all total Trumpers and the European players are not much better. Federer and Nadal also just have very good PR games. But at least it means they don't say foolish things. I am side eyeing Rafa though as he didn't really do much with BLM.
I've unfollowed almost all of them as their character is just far too suspect.
Rafa has also had some real SHIT to say about women getting equal pay over the years.
Federer wasn't the greatest guy either until he hired that UK based image consultant firm who transformed him into this 'James Bond' type. Before that he was a typical grumpy Zverev-esque brat with his shark tooth necklaces and his tantrums.
The establishment hates King Kyrgios. If he were the one out bussy banging in clubs they’d be losing their shit. The donut insult is hilarious!
I wish Nick (or anyone else than the Big 3) could break through and win a slam. His tennis is very high caliber when he’s focused.
Men’s tennis is the biggest bore on the planet though. I don’t understand why most people think that three guys winning literally everything for the past 17 years is “the greatest era ever!!!!!” But when Venus and Serena have several months of success it’s “too predictable!”

The Temple of Divine Perfection ~ Venus’ Picture Thread -vol2
I think we use have one but did it get deleted cause of that blog bot :mad: ?
Anyways I think we should post pictures here of our beautiful and amazing player Venus Williams!
I thought we could have a thread to post/discuss Venus's twitter postings.
She's become quite regular on it and it's quite fascinating actually to read stuff about her. I've learnt a lot.
UPDATE: She sometimes posts longer updates on her facebook page, so I thought we could combine this thread...
Since this forum no longer allows editing of my titles thread along with no more than 10 posts in a week, I'm doing a new one with some new and improved pictures.
