"It comes following a backlash to her announcing before the tournament, she would not take part in press conferences because of the negative impact on her mental health. Organizes off the four major tennis tournament, released a joint statement saying she'd be disqualified from future competitions that she did not complete her media commitments. I'm joined now by our tennis correspondent Russell Fuller Russell. Judging by the reaction to know me statement, the Games got quite a bit of work to do to sort of rescue its image when it comes to mental health. Well, it's certainly disconcerting to acknowledge that name is soccer would probably still be competing in the French Open. Isaac if it wasn't for the obligatory media commitments that come with it, and it was certainly a competent approached by Four Grand Slams and the French Federation as you march on their president, just after a soccer put out her initial post described it as a phenomenal era on it was a major escalation of the stakes by the four Grand Slams to threaten her with potential expulsion from this French Open on future suspensions. If she didn't start talking to the media now that was done. In an attempt to be sad, all players to impose the rules. They had tried to contact Naomi a soccer and ask her about her well being on did not had a response. But but clearly in the cold light of day, that statement they put out on Sunday has not aged well. She mentioned in a statement that she's So the by nature, an introvert and actually is kind of struggled with the glare of the world's media. She's pretty young as well. She's 23 on tennis, as most people know is sort of one of the loneliest sport on the planet. You travel the world. You playing these competitions and a lot of the time you're on your own. Does the game do enough to protect the players? Well, the game there's a lot more than people probably give it credit for the women's tour. The W T A, in particular, do a lot of work to prepare players for life in professional sport. And part of that are the media commitments. People may not believe me, but Journalists do not with a complete lack of sensitivity and compassion. I've been in a number of Nemea soccer news conferences where I felt that people were very aware that this was a very, very young woman dealing with a very difficult defeat before we even knew about her mental health issues. But of course Mork can be done on if a player is in a situation like this. Is it necessary for them to speak to the world's media after defeat in normally, I would say yes, of course, I would say that that is very, very important for everybody's enjoyment and understanding of the sport for us to be able to quiz the players after winds and after defeats, But I think there is definitely a question that needs to be answered there if you've got a young player He was just suffered a high profile and very dispiriting Grand Slam defeat isn't always right that they are quizzed by the media could on occasions. Perhaps the coach we put up Instead, she's talked about wanting to sort of change some of the outdated rules when it comes to press conferences. What do you think she was sort of alluding to there? Well. Those initial comments did get a lot of pushback not just from the media and the tours, but also from fellow players, many of whom feel that actually, they may not particularly enjoy press conferences because they're repetitive. Some of the questions aren't spectacular on it takes up a lot of their time. But they realized the need to publicize the sport. However, it is, of course, completely different when you are somebody who we now know is suffering from Mental health problems and has had these long bouts of depression for 3.5 years, ever since he first won a Grand Slam title, so therefore it will be looked at in a different light. A circus says she wants to talk to the tours when she's had a little bit of time away from the courts. And I think because she has become such an influential voice and a spoken out so eloquently about the black lives matter movement that she has a really, really important platform on Yes, this whole Interview process. The media's role in it condemn it. Li be improved and enhanced also really appreciate you taking the time to speak to me. Russell full. There are BBC tennis correspondent. That's all the sport I've got time for today. Isaac. Thank you very much. Now let's go to Spain, where.
"french federation" Discussed on Miss Information: A Trivia Podcast
"Not joking I, do you remember what she looked like? Yes. Search Sarah Hughes two thousand and to look at that and tell me. About the real story here is that of a Marine Lagoon. Or as she is derisively called by fans and almost only called ever now the French judge. lagunas judging was highly questionable at these games and she was approached by officials in her hotel lobby and when they questioned her, she broke down crying. Canadian pairs skaters, Jamie solid and. David police say were the clear favorites to win the gold. They were both gorgeous. They rarely skated poorly together, but they did have one small trip during their number. However, it wasn't on an element or a trick I guess you'd call it. It was just in the transition between. The Russian duo of bear? Shmaya. An Anton sicker Linski did make one error in which Anton turned out of a double axel too early and that air is on an element. Amazon elements as you might guess, instead of skating. Between the elements rank higher error. Sure yet Laguna ranked the Russians higher for their presentation controversy gave the Russians the gold. Alania confessed that she'd been pressured by the head of the French federation to give the gold to the Russians in its change for giving the French the Golden. Ice Dancing. And guess who took home the golden ice dancing that year was it was the French. It was the French hell out of here. I? Didn't hear about this my God. Oh. Yeah. The the French judge later contradicted herself and she said, no, I actually did believe the Russians were better but nobody believes. And Saw An. Patchy have retroactively been awarded gold for it. And you might be wondering what's Marine Lithuania doing today she's running Shiatsu massage parlor in Strasbourg France. I mean I guess there are worse things. That's what we're up to how the mighty have fallen. So the two thousands are actually pretty important decade for skating because this is when we started to get a bit more diverse. While Midori Ito and Chen, Lu and Yuka Sato who are all world champions in the late eighties in the nineties the `oughts were the first time. We were regularly saying non white skaters winning. Miki Ondo and Mao. Asada from Japan were regularly trading off world champion honors. She's Zucca are a Kalwa also of Japan when the two thousand, six gold medal and Yuna Kim of south. Korea. Gave what's probably the best latest singles Olympic performance of all time in Vancouver in two thousand ten she was also two-time world champion. And this this kind of traded off to the men this diversity in two thousand, ten with the rise of Patrick Chan of Canada, and the sudden emergence of successful male skaters from Japan Sukey Takahashi Shono in maybe the greatest man to ever skate user, Honjo. Hana's one last two Olympic golds and he lands quads four turns in the air like the are no big deal. Oh, my God he jumped practically flying if you if you watch is someone do a quad in competition it is mind blowing how fast they're spinning like you cannot really see it even focusing. It's so fast. In the quad is like the thing. Now, the first Quad Landon Competition was by Canadian Heartthrob Kurt Browning at the nineteen eighty, eight world championships. If you watch that video, he comes out of it a little sketchy, but he does landed. And they've been a big deal for a long time and the problem with this is that quads starting to kind of become the new normal immense skating Nathan Chen American hero when heartthrob in two time defending world champion. regularly lands multiple quads in his routines. There nonetheless. Impressive. But Schaja science shows that a quint theoretically is pretty much impossible for humans to achieve. So that's like the Max is what you're gonNA yeah. Like there's just even with you'd have to have like the burly like legs to be able to do it and it's just not likely to ever happen, and so this begs the question sometimes of is that ever going to be enough. and. So that lands us here in. Present Day. All the women that win ladies, singles events now are just underweight Russian teenagers. A lot of them are taught by to see who is kind of like the premier coach right now with all, she does a screaming her students tell them not to drink water. So they don't gain waterway, and then like once they're nineteen and can't compete with the little teeny jumping beans as they're called she says I just get pregnant and make more skaters. She's home she is just so nice. Her Main Competition and coaching world right now is Brian or out of Canada and he was world champion three year between Brian? Boitano to Raines he also wants silver behind boy Tano at the eight Olympics in Calgary in what the media called the battle of the Brians of course orchestra. Very common in the Brian's. Brian's and battle Carman's. An, answer is known for being very kind in his approach. He's like, Hey, how about you select the music that you get escapes too. So you're happy with And then even with all the diversity I, feel like there's one less person we need to talk about. We're GONNA. Go back to the ninety S and we need to talk about Syria. Syria Bono Lee. She's a she's she's great and this goes back to grace versus power because I completely missed this paragraph between Kerrigan harding and Sarah. Hughes. So. If we WANNA edited in there, we might be able to ask and. I. Apologize. and. So talking about grace versus power there's a notable name of being robbed in this department that is serious. Only a she was a black French figure skater and she was an absolute fan favourite in the nineties. She was a champ on the European circuit winning the Continental Title Five Times from ninety one to ninety five. But the judges on the international circuit and even lower levels than that just did not take her they dismissed her as cocky because she exuded confidence and excitement on ice instead of that regal sense of self that they are. and of course, this can pretty easily be attributed to racist attitudes I mean we hear this same thing about Serena Williams a hundred. If, if Serena gets mad, it's a huge deal apparently. But when someone like Maria Sharapova screens, they don't care 'cause she's a conventionally attractive blonde white woman..

"But when we were, you know we're going to pandemic where the the primary symptom is fever. One of the primary symptoms is a fever and you have one. There are some responsibility that has to be spread around some of it is a tournament. Some of it is very of should have known that he at least told somebody this is also happening against the backdrop, of France, having record high cases. There squarely in their second wave right now so much so that the government is coming up with new restrictions that we don't know how those will affect the tournament the rest of the way. Right per the New, York. Times. Roland. Garros. said the player would be responsible for notifying the tournament of symptoms before the match based on quote a sense of civic duty and responsibility. Okay. That's all well and good. But you have created the conditions for players to show responsibility right them playing is tied to. Money ranking points achievement when a player is in the throes of tournament. especially toward the later stages, you cannot assume that that person is going to act with the communities best interest, and that's not an indictment of players. That's an indictment of their naievety. The the French Federation did not create the conditions for people to make good decisions. It's an indictment of them period twenty percent, the players because of this coin we are well into. Playing tennis again during covert, this is not new stuff. You've made many decisions. You've seen how a bubble should work perfectly, but certainly better than in Paris so much so that you can tell people that this in Paris is not a bubble. It was so much better New York what were those differences? You you can't. I'm not here to absolve players of of this responsible, but I'm also here to hold the French federation to the absolute fire because how our players supposed to trust. This federation and this tournament when been what payer can play but Fernando would ask okay, right. So in rules are applied so haphazardly. BRADESCO was booted from the tournament, but they changed the rules the following day but it was too late because the draw had already been made without him in it to shop of all of went on Iran's about scheduling and he said Oh and another thing this hotels not a bubble. A bunch of players have said that that they see tourists coming in and out everybody who's been asked. Yes. So it's no secret players strangers who were vacationing staying beside them in the next room players who've already lost in the tournament. They're no free to break the quote unquote bubble and go about their business and come back to the hotel whereas in New York even if you lost a new stayed on, you still had to maintain the rules of that bubble that hotel to site bubble like this is a complete. The French farce this tournament, there hasn't been a big break so far not we know of it could very well. Be Happening on it's being stifled because Giudicelli however, they are so f ING Lucky. Right, now I think. They're playing with fire this other element of his thing in this press conference he's telling, Ben Rottenberg I'm not going to answer your question basically because you've been coming from me all summer and I don't like you. Yes. So this You know I was drawn into this as well, and you know what I actually tweeted something without knowing who had asked the question and then people are like, well, Ben. Okay, like it doesn't that doesn't change my opinion when I find out who asked the question so you feel that Ben has been an asshole to of. Okay but the question is still very relevant. They're doing the zoom press conferences. He doesn't want to answer Ben's question. It is incumbent on other reporters in the call to ask the question and it's like Okay Alex de you like me enough to answer the question that is extremely important to be asked like purportedly he answered in German. But. Again. Multiple things can be true. Fine you as tennis twitter person despise been Rothenberg. Outs verb you despise been Rothenberg. Okay. That's your right. Doesn't disqualify the of this question it is four most it is the most important question that needed to be asking this press conference not first starring shits purposes. But for the safety and the security and the continuance of this tournament. At I've I've heard like, oh, he didn't want bent twist. His answer like listen doesn't matter who asked the question whatever reporter you don't link is going to quote at person like the person who asked the question does not own the answer. Do you know what I mean? So if another award asked a question, the reporter who works for the New York Times is. Going to report on it because it's a press conference also not a one on one interview. Also, if you are trying to avoid being Rothenberg D- do not do this because he is a dog with a bone.
Tennis Number One Ash Barty pulls out of French Open over coronavirus
"World number one and defending run champion Ash Party has released a statement to say she will not defend her French Open title and will not travel to Europe. A statement reads it has been a difficult decision to make, but unfortunately, I will not be competing. You're in Europe this year last year's French Open was the most special tournament of my career. So this is not a decision I have made lightly there are two reasons for my decision. The first is the health risks that still exist cove it. The second is my preparation which has not been idea with. Without my coach being to train with me due to the state border closures in Australia I wish the players and the French Federation all best for successful tournament, and now look forward to a long preseason and the summer in Australia. It's been a challenging year for everyone. Nor though I am disappointed on tennis front, the health and wellbeing of my family and my team will always be my priority. Thank you to my fans feel continued support account. Wait to play for you again. So not a huge surprise in terms of we know how how little she wanted to travel at the moment because of the situation and withdrew from the US Open but. It's no small matter to withdraw from tournament that you win before.

"Your opinion of what they not President Vladimir Keita had to say. I'm not a politician but stop trying to tell us how to run businesses. The right decision was not taken. It is very hard for the clubs and links in a single plan did not want to restart all they were asking for was to do. So is this an outline? I always think general opinion from most amongst French football. Jill's been mixed really some people now with a bit of hindsight's and it's been almost a week since the decision was taken to stop. The League of the season story realized that maybe that was GONNA be too early. Maybe they could have waited another couple of weeks maybe three weeks and see especially what was happening in other countries because now if Francie the only of the big five leagues not to resume and everybody else does it would be a disaster for French football and for the French in that League for sure one hundred percent. There's no doubt so I think more people now coming out and saying June awas may be actually in hindsight with. Oh i. It was the right decision because he was cleaning deemed. Not Safe Enough and healthy enough to resume. But maybe we could avoid be more and more discussions around there. And Clearly Vladimir Kita the non owner and president that highlighting. The road doubts and amassing. Our New sports minister played in France. And I don't think she entered the very well and certainly. Since the decision was made last week she'd been quite critical on the club that we're not so keen on stopping the season which I think was again wrong from her. So you would see more. People Live Vladimir. Putin is another one in Yuma have some lawsuits towards the French Federation and the French government and things like that yours have half of the league. That was the right decision and the wisest not to take any risk and because he was not safe enough to resume the season to make the right decision a lot more from Gavin Gills..
"french federation" Discussed on No Challenges Remaining
"Welcome to no challenges remaining. I'm Ben Rothenberg. This is just GonNa be a mini episode of the show. Mostly so your feet is an empty from us this week though. It's also because we want to let you know as a listener suggested we do here on our main podcast feed that Courtney I did record episode not really about tennis from our respective quarantines. This week which we posted to our Patriot feed at back on Monday. Our listener suggested we alert people to here on the main feed to this. Because a lot of people wouldn't we had done that and so here is us doing that. Now and here is a brief excerpt of that Patriot. Show as a teaser. And that's the tricky thing about I think for everybody in this krona virus crisis panic. I think it's fair to say is that. I don't know whether I'm overreacting or under reacting to everything. Yeah like I just. You just don't know so long as we don't have slow as I can't get tested I will never know you know. And that's just like that's exhausting. I think about this but the part about staying inside. It's cool. Yeah no that's the thing I mean I feel like both you and I were kind of built for these precise I mean if this is like the closest that we get to like wartime like I wasn't built to be draft I wasn't built to go out there and and we'll gun and fight and like do things but if you're telling me that Ito to save lives just like stay confined and stream things and read books and all that sorta stuff like this is my moment to shine. I I will. I will be your hero. I'm happy to do it. Husbands some news in the world since we recorded our Patriot chat namely that the tours at both canceled their seasons through the French Open and the French Open then for that or maybe simultaneously that made a wild unilateral gambit to relocate. It's tournament already occupied chunk of the calendar announcing that intend to be held in starting in late September in any early October Now while I would love to go to Paris in autumn for a change I mean. It's one of the weird things Tennessee. We go to the same places always in the same time of year. This move was pretty out of line out of pocket as the kids would say given the the French Open didn't consult with anybody before announcing it and it would land on top of some pretty big existing events already in those spots in the calendar including deputy premier events in Tokyo and Wuhan. And it's now really the right time to be crapping on. Wuhan F. F. T. and also the Labor Cup which is whether or not you think it's an extra or nodded is a major eighty sanctioned event already on the calendar that draws big crowds and big viewership and plus six more. Atp events on the circuit as well as so. This whole thing created a lot of bad will in the way the French Open did it. And we can pick up the pieces of that at a later stage talk about tennis governance in what it sort of shows about how it's fracturing in this time of crisis and also coming together there was funny statement from ADP WPA Basically talking about how united the other six are in very clearly leaving the leaving the French federation out of that. But we don't know I mean we don't know if there's even matter tennis leaving the back by September or even anytime this year honestly there's just a lot of uncertainty right now.
"french federation" Discussed on The Tennis Addict Podcast
"However obviously during the the possibility existed. They're going to move the tournament so I think. I think that that's something that we're going to hear more about With there's also a little more to it than that because the cup has also thrown in. Its two cents So this is the Labor Cup statement. Now this is supposed to take place in Boston all right so this is what the liver cups had to say. This is their statement on the schedule. The tennis world learn today that the French Tennis Federation intends to schedule Roland Garros from September twentieth to October Fourth. Twenty twenty due to the impact of the corona virus or while they said Co via D nineteen These dates overlap with dates of Labor Cup. Twenty twenty already sold out and scheduled for September twenty fifth to twenty seventh twenty twenty at TD Garden in Boston. This announcement came as surprised us and our partners tennis Australia. The USDA in the ATP raises many questions. We are assessing the situation. At this time. We want our fans sponsors broadcasters and staff volunteers players and the Great City of Boston to know that we intend to hold the cup twenty twenty as currently scheduled so Well that's Interesting yeah that is definitely definitely interesting. So obviously this has really rubbed Lever Cup and the US Open the US USDA at the wrong way. Clearly they are not happy about this And again I said earlier. I think that communication is key here. You have to communicate with the other entities tennis entities across the world. It's not just about rolling garrison I get it. They are not under anybody's umbrella. They don't have to talk to anybody. I get that but especially given the situation that we currently have you need. You need to communicate you need to talk to the other tennis leagues around the world just to make this decision knowing full. Well you drop Roland Garros where they drop it they know what other tournaments they're they know. Labor cups there the near the US Open just happened And there's other things in there too. It's not just them. Look September twenty. First there's no ATP event which obviously is recap right You have September twenty first. Wt event in Seal Tokyo Right. So you also have the twenty eighth and ATP event And Sofia Zoo high And then you have on the twenty eighth to September a Deputy Event. Wuhan those those are all things that are conflicting now with Roland. Garros where it's at now. So maybe if they had called up the WTN ATP had a big round table discussion and said what can we do here? How can we make this work? Maybe they could have come to a consensus. We said okay. Fine we can move this around. We can move this but when you make a decision by yourself and you don't consult with anybody else about it with all the other events okay. Fine they're not grand slams while the US openness but all these other events they may not be a a grand slam. They're still important events and they still mean something to the the places the locales that are being held in like Labor Cop. They're all sold out. What do you do there? I guess you could move it. Try TO I suppose. I don't know I it's not just saying okay. Fine will will move it to week after Roland Garros Wooden. Because they're probably the tournaments that would conflict too so again. It's it's a crazy situation. But you've gotta communicate and I think this reheating illustrates just how poorly this was thought out. It's not that I disagree with moving rule. Garris two different place in the schedule. I'm surprised by it. Surprised shocked by the fact that even moved it. I just assumed they were gonNA cancel it But fine if you're going to move it great but talk to other people call up the head of the ATP WTA consult with them. Work something out. See what you can do. Don't just say hey we're moving wrong. Garris this. The two week Slot in the in the schedule that we're going to drop it. Don't like it too bad. We will carry us. Don't do that that that's I get it. It's a crazy situation and you're trying to salvage something here but don't just drop things and say you guys figure it out not our problem you yeah you can do it. I guess but it's going to rub people the wrong way and it doesn't help and players that are now defending points in those four while they were cups different but you know the WTO the ATP tournaments so what do they do their they. Don't move it then. You might have players that say you know. I'm the defending champion on. What do I do now? Especially if you're in the back end of the US Open or what if your Somebody that won Tokyo last year. Would you say well I want it? Should I play Roland Garros? Should I play Tokyo do here? You're forcing players to make decisions. That I I guess they really shouldn't have to make again consultation. Working together this would have solved or at least one of assisted in the decisions that were being made here and they simply didn't do at least based on what I've read so far and I could be wrong but it looks like this was simply dropped and everyone a hostile adjust to it. So that's kind of my thoughts on all this Don't really know there's anything else to add here. I just wanted to talk about some of this stuff. That's happened here. The cancellation of the rest of the clay season. The moving of Roland Garros the freezing of the ranking points. Those are all I really wanted to touch on There may be other stuff out there. I don't know but I will check in. And if more news pops up here I will do another episode. I will drop it as soon as I can. Here and You know if you have any questions if you have any opinions on the stuff that's happened. I definitely would like to hear about it. You can contact me on twitter at Tennis Addict Pod and let me know what you think now. You can also sending your feedback to the email tennis addict. Podcast AT JIMBO DOT COM. And let me know your thoughts. Did well the French Federation. Do they make the right decision? Here right. Should they have consulted Do you think that this is their choice? They can do whatever they want Either at tournaments just have to deal with it What are your thoughts and the ranking freeze are the I guess? The ranking freeze The points freeze. And what do you think about the rest of the clay season being cancelled Just any thoughts you might have on these subjects and anything else if you There's something you want me to talk about Cover on the next episode Don't be afraid to you. Know suggest something But the most important thing here. Rumor folks is that As much as I love tennis I want people to be safe. And I want people to be healthy and includes you Do whatever you have to do to stay safe out there Self isolate Just just be careful Do what you can To just make sure that you're healthy I know a lot of older people get hit with this and they are susceptible. But but don't believe that if you're younger that you're gonNA be fine There are a lot of reports out there that a lot of younger people are big. Don't get affected as much by the virus but their people. There are a lot of younger people that are in the in the hospital in severe health situations because of the current virus. Don't believe that this is only going to affect like older people. And they're the ones that are they're the only ones that are really susceptible to this Virus so again. Just be safe. Take all the precautions. Wash hands Social distancing all of it the other thing you can To just be as healthy as possible and you know. Try to stay positive. You know help others when you can But I just try to to keep a positive attitude as much as you can. That's hard right now but we have to try and do as much as we can to stay honesty to stay a little sane these days so That's kind of all wanted to to say here and Just it's it's been hard hard on the a.

"That team another one World Cup without Adam but Craig when we watch his team play certainly the last few qualifiers you can make the case. They very much need him. Don't you if you start them over. If you've got them no question right. Is He a strike and the answer is clearly. Yes what I would say was has At record the international level is is pretty good practice very good on the way that the shop place to play and the people around them and the physical attributes of Jerusalem. I think the quite hockey with with what you mentioned it in the World Cup just a little thing to one with. I think it's too is just taken off from what Joe said George points. It's too messy. Yeah I think it's to dot is to message to ugly to change unless unless F- and changed in the French Federation and the courts chain so I just don't see I agree. I think sometimes when you get into into the kind of the team dynamic and if you have a player and a manager that probably obviously been at odds and then it's always it's always the tricky part is when the president kind of gets involved and he starts making comments. We're surely I mean I think Benjamin makes a good point that it's it should be the managers decision not the president kind of chiming coming in on that side of it so but I think if you look at team chemistry and with a manager and a player that have had obviously a history of issues it would take something than special for that player to come back into the fold. Then that doesn't look like that's going to change anytime somebody who's done a great job for France you've got as your grease man who we know. When he goes away with the French generally gets to play? We want an MVP there yes we'll probably tale waiter walk through the metal and then there are others so it's not like they have nobody they done the bottom of the where will look in the not not at that point and so it's just it's just more rhetoric.

It's just it's a perfect storm, if it was a case of, let's say dominate team is gonna play against Fabio Fanini or something. I'm not sure would have been quite as opening shot. But they are saying they're saying that, that the fact that if the jewel ticket sales on on cherry on what is shuttled to be without whether intervening men semi finals day. They're saying that, that lend, regardless, if he was actually playing that align makes impossible for them to have done anything other than what they've done today. So actually, you could have ended up with nobody against navy navy navy that, that is that is what they're saying believe I mean it can't happen again because they'll be a roof next year.

Radio Jonathan Avery was very strong arguing with total shocker for the French federation, it looks awful. He was saying that they should have seen this coming at the same time. It was a bit unlucky.

But then when push comes to shove is the women that get the Chauve that's the that's the that's slow perfect storm with with the way it turned out.

"I mean is the Zeno, you're laughing, but I'm asking in genuinely is, is that part of what's being hinted at here when we're talking about the traditions and respecting the game? Well, I'm laughing because you're you're, you're spot on, but it's a great conversation to bring up because it's always been a country club sport basically. And so you know, someone like myself came from a public park here in Houston, Texas, you know, it was just kind of unheard of, you know, for a public park person Bill, even though Billie Jean King came out of a public park and also Chris Evert. But you know, for. Black tennis player to come and all of a sudden you're beating all these country club where it's an elite sport and it's only supposed to be played by, you know, the elite people and how dare someone come in. So you have been Serena or myself coming in, and you know, kinda shaking things up. It makes people nervous. I mean point, Blake, I mean, you can see it even on the junior level. When you know you have a program with, you know, a free program are giving, you know, minority kids the opportunity to play the game in. They go beat these kids that are paying all these money. You know, all of a sudden rules are, you know, they start questioning this. I, I'm five, four and a half. I remember my mom used to have to bring my birth certificate to tournaments too, because they said I was too big for, you know, an eleven year old. I'm five, four and I haven't grown Sarah Jackson, you you shaking your head here? Yeah. I mean, I really like what Tina said about the history of this being a country club sport, and we should remember. Member that historically country clubs were only for men. Right? So even when we get back to the question about gender here and and dress code and gender, there was this really great piece in l. magazine written by Britney deal critter yesterday about the history of dress codes in sports for women. And originally, women could were only allowed to play sports that they could play in long skirts because, of course it was unfini- not to wear a skirt and it was too provocative to wear short skirts. So he, you know, women were trying to play baseball and we're trying to play, you know, all kinds of things in these long skirts which is totally absurd. And so when we come back to this question about the tradition and the place and respecting the tradition in the place, what's really interesting is that the conversation were not having his about what's rec- how we respect what is useful and good for the athletes, right? Why aren't we respecting what clothes make it easiest for them to to be their best or what clothes make it in Serena's coast healthiest for them to play. And so. These questions of who that respect refers to and who, or what exactly we're expecting doesn't seem to apply to women athletes when we're critiquing their clothes, but it seems to apply to some, you know, historical, ethereal, man, you know, who made the rules about what is appropriate to wear to not wear on the court with get a bunch of calls here Justin's calling from Brenton, Massachusetts, you're on the air, Justin. Thank you for the call a million cited to be a part of this conversation, a music fan of Caitlyn and genius a real privilege to talk to you. You know, as a, I'm a big fan of the game. I'm a longtime player, and I really think that tennis, especially in the US suffers from an image problem. And you know, there are lots of reasons for that. I think one of them you know about this issue with the French federation is that there are so many governing bodies, so that makes it very problematic to have narratives and you know, writing the ship a little bit, but I don't really have a question what I what I'd like your guests at talked about and talk to are the ways that at the elite levels, American tennis has changed so much. I mean, the, you know, if we consider players of color Sloan evens Madison keys. Francis PF. Oh, and and the role. Of immigrants. You know, kids who are coming from from parents emigrated to the to the US. I mean, that's really different than this. You know, old image of a white male dominated sport..
