Thanks Teckert.

On the tennis she does indeed have a history of it. There was another incident in 2014 regarding a foot fault.

My political leaning is no secret, however the blow up over that cartoon is so absurd it beggars belief. I think the cartoonist nailed it. Though I suspect there are plenty of women's libbers of all political persuasion jumping on the sexist card.

The manner in which it has completely overshadowed the achievements of Osaka is frankly disgusting and I don't need some Harvard expert to tell me otherwise. I saw the blow up with my own eyes so it is hardly fake news.

I think Serena has a real future after tennis. As a spin doctor for a political party. The way she has been able to turn a complete ego driven tantrum into a defiant stand against sexism in the sport has been nothing less than masterful.👏👏👏

BUT a lot of fools have bought into it. Not once has she complained about the fact that women only have to play three sets at most to garner the same prize money a man has to play five sets for. Selective sexism I guess!

What would I know, Iím a middle aged male, everything is my fault😂😂

Bernard Tomic has won his first ATP title in Chengdu in 3 years:

This virtually guarantees him direct entry into the AO next year.
