You're right I should not have bitten. Guess the hawks supporters will focus on anything now their era is over.Can we leave the Essendon rubbish out of it? They aren't comparable scenarios at all.
I can completely understand the majors offering Sharapova a WC, they want bums on seats after all. Also, would it be fair to other qualifiers if she was forced to go through the qualifying rounds?
Her 5 majors might be nothing to sneeze at but she is more of a corporate superstar. WTA (who are a joke) should focus less on quick fix pin-up girls as saviours like Sharapova, Bouchard, Wozniacki, etc... and focus more on promoting tennis players like Kerber, Ka Pliskova, Konta, Svitolina.That's it... she's a tennis superstar, of course, the GS and other tournaments want her playing in the main draw
yeah you are right. i forgot how anti doping they are.You're right I should not have bitten. Guess the hawks supporters will focus on anything now their era is over.
France have a big anti doping focus so I completely understand their reluctance to offer her a WC.
she hasnt yet. who knows what will happen. force her to go through qualies is my call.Yep $9 to win, 3rd favourite wit His Muguruza the $6.50 favourite.
Konta is great value at $23
"I'm not hiding my opinion. I think the same as Andy Murray," said Radwanska, adding that she would not give Sharapova wildcards if she was in charge of a tournament. "This kind of entry into the tournament should be available only for players who were dropped in the ranking due to injury, illness or other random accident.
“Not for those suspended for doping,” she said. “Maria should rebuild her career in a different way, beginning with smaller events."
But Eisenbud was quoted attacking Radwanska and Wozniacki as “journeyman” players, and said they had “no clue” about the ruling in her case and wanted to keep her from playing to improve their chances at the French Open.
