"sharipova" Discussed on The Lead
"Charlie how did Maria Sharapova 's retirement announcement go down she made announcement in a penned essay on Vanity? Fair and I think he went out in vogue as well and she basically said that she didn't really have anything less than that. She would miss the competition. The sport was able to expose some of my greatest characteristics. The characteristic of never giving up a fighting for every point of going after my dreams. She talked about putting on her trainers and going out there. And giving it everything but that it was time you know. She had a lot of injuries and she talked about the fact that it'd be nice to be able to do some other things and have a cup of coffee and not worrying about the fact that she should be training or have an extra slice of cake and not think. Oh I'm going to have to do a double training session to make up for that. So it sounded like she'd reached a point where she'd make peace with it. Tennis showed me the world and it showed me what I was made of. It's how I tested myself. And how I measured my growth in so in whatever might choose for my next chapter my next mountain. I'll still be pushing. I'll still be climbing. I'll still be growing the end. And she tumbled way down to number three hundred seventy three in the world rankings. The almost no dear came at the. Us Open last September when she being six one. Six one by Serena Williams in a in a pretty humiliating defeat never really took public beating and in truth of the last few years she she'd had some good results but not really hit the heights of why she was before. So obviously we're Sharipova is now in two thousand. Twenty is very different from where she was when she first burst onto the scene. Remind us about the tennis. World's introduction to Maria Sharapova whether it really came in two thousand and four at Wimbledon Russia's Maria Sharapova was just seventeen and seated thirty as. She made her first appearance in a Grand Slam final facing her twenty two year. Old American Serena Williams the defending champion number one seed and very much the favorites going into the match.
It's Sharapover: A Complicated Affair
"Thought we had the weekend off. I thought we had bought ourselves a little bit of time doing that. Mailbox episode but Maria Sharapova decided to upend our brief break and announced her retirement from tennis. Let's not do a whole lung. Preamble about this. We're here because Maria Sharapova has retired and we're here to talk about that to situate her career talk about the the ups and downs of her career and put her career and her into some context. She announced this week via an essay that she wrote for Vanity Fair and Vogue which were released at the same time both conde nast publications. It's the sort of flex that only a player of her magnitude can do. It's been interesting to me to watch her over. I would say probably the past year or a little more and an observed how little attention and how little fanfare has followed her around considering that she was once the highest paid female athlete in the world. She was tennis's biggest superstar for for many years and this latter stage of her career has been quiet. When you say only a player like her obviously Serena can do that too. I Know Naomi can do that too. I think those are the three players in women's tennis who have that kind of stature status to be able to call up an A. Winter. And be like. Hey can I can let y'all know in your publication regardless of who can do it. The point is that Maria is bigger than tennis. In the same way that Serena or Roger or Rafa are Novak are bigger than tennis. They don't have to go through the traditional tennis media to do these things they can call on their sponsors their friends mainstream press. They have that freedom does afford them because they are successful and they make a lot of money. Of course I knew what you meant but I think dealing with a complicated figure like Maria Sharapova comment on us to be as precise as we can with our words so as to not open up ourselves controlled. But we're not doing this. The whole episode. Every every statement about Maria is not an equal statement about serene. We're just not. I agree I'm just saying we can easily cost nothing to be more precise okay. You see what you did there. You put me in a position to be the bad person. Well maybe you shouldn't shouldn't do it anyway. Maria wrote this essay. I think there were probably a few journalists and people within the sport who was coming and we can't release it as a massive surprise considering that her body has been betraying her over the past few years. It's been extremely difficult for her. To stay healthy at this point for even a match or two in a row. Her events have been sparse. It seemed that the writing had been on the wall for a little while. What's interesting to me is that there is no retirement tour. There's no final triumphant moment at a Grand Slam. That meant a lot to her. There's no on-court Farewell. It almost seems I know. Use The word quiet before but it. It just seems a little anti-climactic for somebody who has meant so much to the game for the past fifteen years. Sure but to me. It makes sense because to embark on some kind of farewell tour. You'd have to be able to count on your body to a low to show up for right and I think that's what the bottom line is here for Maria. She told this story in her Vanity Fair Vogue Essay. That just getting on court for her match at the. Us Open last year. Felt like a victory getting the shot in her shoulder Infos cortisone or whatever but just being able to play to numb the shoulder and play in the first round was a big achievement and so she was past the point of being able to plan anything tennis related because their body just wouldn't let her right and I don't think she's the type to be like well. Let me just show up for this first. Rhone have a cute little moment and lose six two six two like. That's not the kind of scripting that she would one. No and she's had an interesting career injury wise because after that big shoulder surgery that she went through with that had really compromised her play. She had to rewrite the way that she served. Her game. Looked quite a bit different than when she was seventeen. Eighteen nineteen years old but she learns how to move on Clay. She wins two French Open. She becomes a dominant player. Again will maybe not a dominant player. But she reaches number one again. She's part of this triumvirate for a little while with Serena and as Aranka all the while dealing with this shoulder issue. That is still very much a problem. It's not just that she won the French Open. She was winning tournaments on clay. Yeah her up until two thousand ten. I believe she had one or made. Just one final unclean. It was green clad. Amelia Island But from two thousand ten words you see Maria making a ton of clay finals in fact the majority of her finals that she makes I believe in the second half of her career come on clay winnings took three times and winning Rome three times. So that's like you said a complete change of course from what we conceive of her to start her. So where do you WANNA start here? Do you WanNa talk about her career on the court and just kind of give a little background where she started where we are now and then I mean the extracurricular things are huge story with Maria as always I wanNA talk about first about her influence one of the things that I've seen since the the announcement that she's retired is some folks. Scoffing at just how much her actual influence was and how much she inspired people and I don't think you can underestimate. Just how much influence Maria Sharapova had in bringing people into tenants. They might not be the reasons that you would want people to come to tennis. But Maria Sharapova is Bar. None globally the most well-known women's tennis player. And we know this. Because Jamaicans don't know what Serena Williams looks like. We know this from schools John's quits. I can't tell you how many times I've interacted with people and they're like what would you like? Well I have a tennis podcast and like Oh Maria sharp over. I'm like do you follow tennis. No but they know who? Marie sharp over yes. Her Persona has cut through so many different facets of life to the point where random people know who she is on top of that. There are a lot of people who the very first match they saw was Maria Sharapova match. And that's the kind of thing that can't control. I was a Cheetah van because the very first match I watched was a continue to match the very first men's match. I watch was an Agassi match. Those are the things that that people hang onto. Because it's their first introduction right so there is that there is the fact that she occupied this place of prominence being the top paid female athletes in the world. For so long we can have a totally different discussion about whether that was warranted or deserved that separate and apart. If you're able to separate those two things then I think you can see clearly that Sharipova mental out to a lot of people and had great influence within the tennis world the sporting world and in society at large globally as well within tennis. She is a polarizing figure. We are not going to pretend like we have always been kind to her on the show. We've had our fun roasting Maria over the years. You've had your fun today with the title for this episode and You know. I'm going to be totally straightforward. Maria is not not a player that I loved to watch play tennis. I can appreciate her place. I respect a lot of things about her. She's not somebody who's matches I- flocked to watch and we've been critical about the way that she wrote about Serena and her bulk about how she handled the IT F. and then water ban and there's a lot going on but she is not an a boring character by any stretch. If you were to look back now and Marie his career what is the one word or the one thing that comes to mind what well? Unfortunately right now. It's Mel Donen. That's the first thing that comes to my e. Yeah like if we're doing plane Word Association. I'm not saying that's fair. Okay but I think when we have some distance when I've been thinking about her career. I'm thinking about winning Wimbledon at seventeen thinking about having a career slam on Sugar Povoa. Her tennis achievements are huge. Because very few women have won a career. Grand Slam. Her off-court achievements are also big and they're also painted by the fact that her blindness and her whiteness made her the perfect foil and the perfect heroin. As opposed to this dominant black champion Serena Williams you know she was the great white hope right again. Another consideration of the great white hope for me. The word is complicated when we covered the muldoon thing. We came down right in the middle of the fence. We come down on either side of the. I think I'm still there actually. It was kind of interesting to go back and look through some of the research done for that episode. What like what three years ago? At this point I'm early. Two Thousand Sixteen when it when it came out so almost four years ago we would have covered this on the show and to now be going through it again are thinking about it again and and feeling the same way like not much has changed for
"I'm Saying Goodbye": Maria Sharapova Retires From Tennis at Age 32
"Don't know if you share my sentiments. This was news. That is not remotely surprising. We were all expecting this. I think Most people had already pre filed. The Maria Sharapova retires column and yet I gotTa say it feels you know an hour into this but Feels a little weird definitely I. This is not like Last time we had big Sharipova News at SL which was of course it. Two Thousand Sixteen and that that was a big surprise. This like you said I think we all saw it coming. It was a matter of when and not if so for to be now is I think a pretty normal timing given whether she's going to play Indian Wells and Miami probably would have kick started her into the French and Wimbledon and then sort of. You're playing out the year at that point so for her to call it quits after all. Cheyenne this little gaps. Seems to make sense but I don't know what do you think? Yeah ranked ranked three seventy three. Something had to give here. This is a five time major champion. Who you did not think was going to play the wild card game for very long. I I guess I would perhaps suspected she would have played Indian Wells. It's an event where she's had success. It's two hours from her home in southern California she would have gotten a grand sendoff But you know this. This is I had these two competing instincts with Sharipova. What what do we know about her? She is fiercely. Driven fiercely competitive. She is and always has been. I think we can talk about this a bit later. The consummate professional and those are really dueling instincts when you're ranked three seventy three and not playing it anywhere near the level that you're accustomed to Part of you probably says I can fight through this. This is just more adversity. I can overcome. I'm better than this. I just need to work harder. I can get my body right. I can get my mind right. I can get back. I don't WanNa go out like this and another part of you says surely I can't have this indignity. I can't be losing round after round early. I'm not seated so I'm playing tough opponents. My Body's giving up on me so I think you had and they came from the same place but they're two very different ways to react to to the same core instinct and today she said enough is enough. I mean I think you're right that You know February is a strange month in tennis. And I guess you know we're we`re. There's no perfect way to retire from the sport and we see even within tennis players very differently. Some players go on this goodwill tour and some players like Caroline Wozniacki says look. I'm going to pinpoint this as my last event and go ahead and prepare your tribute reels. And I'm GonNa play this event knowing when I lose my last match. That's IT and Sharipova. We've seen other players. There's players do this as well. Sharapova pulled us out of the blue and it's it's a Wednesday and she's not at a tournament today And retired in her own way. So I don't know I mean the other. There are a number of questions that stem from this whole conversation and jump in any jump in anytime here. I mean I think the overall question when a player retires as we assess legacy I don't know particular bullet points. Jump out at you Jamie. I think I think highs and lows complicated legacy Of course is going to be attached to share over The the craziest thing I think if you look at the timing now she's ranked three hundred seventy three which says absolutely nothing about her career but to your point. I mean she was at the point now where she was trying to come back and she's nowhere even near the top one hundred You know not even winning any matches and it's it must be really hard for her honestly to you know given all that she's accomplished. I think we said thirty six. W titles obviously the five Grand Slams all these rivalries quote unquote particularly with Serena Williams which is also another interesting conversation to have but I think it was probably getting difficult for her to continue to be you know struggling and Her her legacy given you know the the MELDA NEOM and the ban will always thou always be part of her story? Yeah I think you're absolutely right and today should be happy day. Celebrate a five time major champion. I mean I was looking at her staff and I think we forget how good she was for for a variety of reasons. I think to the casual tennis fan. They were misled by two. One is the head to head with Serena that you reference. She beat Serena Breakthrough Center women. Final Two thousand four and then she loses whatever. The math twenty two is the derived. So lose eighteen nineteen matches to Serena Williams And I think that to the casual fan that we say rivalry. And then we sort of have to amend that to say with a lopsided rivalry which might be an oxymoron. The other thing about Sharipova that I and I wrote about this that I think is a great Sort of misleading bid about her is she had this regal disposition and she endorsed product after product. And it was very upscale. And it's Evian Cole Haan I remember you. I remember walking in New York and seeing her on three different billboards for three different upscale products. And there was this or of elegance. She was selling herself as much as she was a brand. She was selling sort of cosmopolitan posh elegance in yet. The tennis was. I was called her sort of tennis. Gym Rat I mean. It was not elegant tenants by any stretch and Jud admit to that and she was in her own way your own six foot one inch which she was a grinder and she was not what you call an athlete. He wasn't a graceful mover. She did not play graceful elegant tennis and I always thought that was really to her credit. That you'd see her on the back court and she'd be doing her footwork drills because she knew that was an area to improve and she would be working on her serve which always gave her fit in part because of the shoulder injury and she would grind out matches and she would win tough matches. She did not. This was not the female Roger Federer and I think tennis fans of course know that but I think casual fans see all of this aura of elegance and assume she played that way and that wasn't the case at all I mean the the screaming grunting grinding sweating. You'll brushing the hair that had managed to her forehead. That's the Maria Sharapova on the tennis court has an athlete And I think you know again I want to just this should be a day to give credit to someone who had a tremendous career and five majors. Yes but thirty six titles almost forty million dollars you got to number one. I mean this is really an a-list career and you know she had the misfortune of playing. At the same time Serena Williams and there was a lot that went into that relationship beyond the tennis. That probably did not work to Maria benefit but you take away. Cerita you take away. Venus Williams seven majors. Maybe Justine Henin. Maybe Kim Clijsters and I think it's very easy to make the case. Marisha published one of the top five players of the Post Steffi Graf of the last twenty five years and tennis so this is really a remarkable career. And yet as you mentioned if we're going to talk about her honestly. This wasn't the way it was supposed to end. Which is you know a a doping ban. I thought a very clumsy handling of the doping ban. I thought it was very out of character and off brand of her to have been so sloppy. Not just in the violation but then in the aftermath and how it was handled and some of the the the the press conference that we referenced and she was never the same player after that and you know co correlation is not causation and may simply have been that. She was a little sport and she was in early thirties and players get older. We see this on not just in tennis but in in sports in general I mean thirty two big number in in women's tennis but it was not supposed to end with a doping band and a ranking that drifted deep into triple figures so overall macro great career hall of fame player but there is a tinge I think of bittersweet. There is a little bit of disappointment. That This wasn't the way this hall of fame career was supposed to be a gift. Compare what we saw a month ago when Caroline wozniacki is out there on the court and our families there and she's toasted and all of the players are making tribute videos and were. She's crying but she's saying I'm not sad and she does. I mean I talked to her the following day. She was all gussied up because she clearly had been doing the spots around. There's definitely a difference of a decision on your terms and decision that was made based on your body and The time of your career. You know it's it's very different in comparing into. What was the Yankee especially given those? The Yankees recent title in Australia just seemed very full circle for her to do that. this again is random but also very expected. I think one of the things I always sort of liked about Sharipova was Her personality in in two ways. I think we talk. You talk about her on the court sweating grinding shrieking. I mean everyone. I think even if you're not a big tennis fan you know share Provo. Because maybe she made you mute the TV while you're watching a match and that's something that a lot of people will probably joke about but you know she worked hard in the court she was always like fierce and and you know a competitor for sure but she also you know. I remember processors and and interviews where she's actually has a very great personality and and you know quite opposite of that fierce competitor where she could be funny and she was actually Kinda Witty and and You know there was a a side to her personality. That was very likable. When most people on the court probably saw the opposite so overall she's a huge name. In this sport she's one of the handful that transcends just tennis you you mentioned her and she needs only one name There's only a handful of those type of athletes so I think She will definitely be missed. I think we're fair to

"sharipova" Discussed on The Right Time with Bomani Jones
"It ain't gives you rita came. First cerita waves rena dipped but after did they got hit balls with all kinds of players who have won grand slams whose names i don't know they were rattling off resumes but he's women. I guess she won wimbledon. In two thousand seventeen gene or is he the three time grand slam champion dan mullen who this is and they say that name i never heard an outward walk and eastern european woman that i had never seen like like american interest in tennis in their way is just kind of waned as we don't have that many american tennis players left that are like at the height in that way although we've actually actually we've got more of them than i think credit forces interesting. They're disproportionately black. Maybe it has. I have no idea but anyway i went out today event and you know who the people were. Amryah sharipova was there. It wasn't a rousing ovation gate. It wasn't a rousing ovation as let's just say. The crowd seemed to be much more serena crowd than maria crowd. If i'm with you a is one of those one of those situations but anyway i saw him out there <hes> and then then after that the draw came out and we had sharipova and serena williams playing in the first round now the game was going on during a birthday dinner. I went to the bathroom at some point and i saw that the score was one one in the first set by the time dinner was done serena beat her six one six one and as that last game is in progress on watching sharipova or one of the game's over the last one but watch sharipova job and she's got the ball and she's doing driven ball before she serves. I dunno dribbling the right way to put it but whatever i say things as i know so she dribbling getting ready to serve and and you can just see it interface. I think she wanted to cry and i'm not saying there's like oh boo view of saying this like literally like she wanted to cry. She looked miserable israel. She looked as though she was being embarrassed in front of the world and so here's thing for me clearly some of y'all out here love maria sharapova and i noticed some of your love maria sharapova because you have to love maria sharapova in order to try to sell this idea the idea somehow the maria sharapova and serena williams are rivals just because sharipova beat serena a couple times like fifteen eighteen years ago literally like a couple times like fifteen years ago and i even like a couple of times. It is literally a couple times. The the like fifteen years ago is guessing because i'm not sure the exact timing on the dates all right but offer that somebody fight decided that this was a rivalry what has happened in that rivalry sense. Serena has beaten her nineteen gene straight times nineteen straight times. Sharipova has not taken a set off serena in breath ten years ten years et gave me. If i'm wrong didn't serena give it a blues at the olympics. I believe so two two thousand twelve olympics six love six one out at wimbledon and the olympics six love six one and you know whose fault it is y'all's fall. It's y'all's fault because serena wooden have the doer like that if y'all one out here trying to act like like somehow they were arrives the need to present somebody to have alongside serena williams as a rival. That's why y'all in this situation. Asian serena beat anybody else nineteen times in a row. Is there anybody else that she is. This consistently dog walked in the way she maria sharapova pope. Do you think that that is strictly about the way that their games match up because wash sharipova. Maybe a little overrated. She has five grand slam titles and she has won the career your grand slam right like she's not annakournakova or anything like that but she out here getting dog walked by serena every single time..

It should be a separate event. They deserve to have a separate of end stuff. Like that's gonna happen that that's a problem. That's that's but it is a big deal. And there's a lot of people really interested in how do we promote women's cycling? How do we how do we elevate it to the, you know, the men's level? And honestly, I don't think I honestly don't think the stakeholders want that. I don't think I don't think ASO wants to have a women's tour events, and that's a problem. And by the way, that's not a sustainable position. You might think that today twenty nineteen twenty thirty. They will not think that they have to have a women's tour to France it. Maybe it doesn't have to be three weeks. But you can't just not have love the best example to me is tennis women's tennis. I mean twenty years ago, women's tennis. Was was was not certainly not where it is today. But then all of a sudden you had these women come along the Serena the Williams sisters, and cornucopia and all Sharipova. Beautiful women personalities great stories in bad ass players. And all of a sudden people are like, oh, well, I'll watch this. So that's what we have to have. But. Roland Garros always had a women's final Wimbledon always had a women's final. These things that we have. Now, the tour Jiro that they are not thinking about that right now. And that's a problem. And until we get them to think that way it's going to continue to be a problem. I I didn't catch that story. But I do have an example with the the women do the same exact says the men and they start separately. But they get the same amount of exposure. And I feel like mountain biking has done a better job, and promoting women cycling, and we actually have a world champion gate, Corey Kate Courtney. American world champion mountain biker who just graduated from Stanford. So I.

"And I I don't think this is specific. But the so often Jimmy we talk about players who they've got all the shots, and they just sometimes lack self belief in the critical moments. Well, you know what? Daniel Collins does not lack self belief indep good for her. All right. Let's switch over the men any anything else on the women's side. I mean weird. Did you see the Maria vegemite campaign? I saw that that make I saw it over here. I saw that in your in your fifty parting thoughts but weird weird. I gotta say of a little not often you see tournament sponsors throwing. Shade. Is you kids say on one player particular little strange, but I I don't know if she commented on it. I was gonna ask that anyone. I don't think she would she shut down other lines of inquiry that she found adverse I've such big feelings about Maria Sharipova these days in some ways, find her so admirable and another ways I still feel like there's still a reckoning that hasn't quite happened. But we don't have talk about that. Now has confirmed she will be sticking around. So no. And I again, I think there's a lot about her in the way she goes about her business at really is admirable and something other players would do well to emulate, I still think there some. Old we'll deal with this another time. All right. Let's talk about men three anything new. The saints. What other teams from women we should hit on any strange match. Now. I mean, how up and and thought that that was a good match. How much is was terrific yet high level tennis. And I thought holiday we can't can we can I can I make a point here. I was just thinking about and I feel like hasn't gotten. It's do you mentioned holiday. You could have said this for any. This is such a strange time for tennis. There is so much politicking and backstabbing and narcissism and sort of behind the scenes chaos and these stupid competition over this eight this ATP World Team Cup that I think is just an atrocity and meanwhile, the tennis is terrific in. I would suggest that the overall character of the players has never been higher. The actual people hitting the ball are wonderful. And you literally could go down the list, and it it's sits a possum Francis hall up. Let me literally go down the rankings in. They are funny and cool and diverse in there. It's there's literally no player that you really can have any sort of adverse feelings for and the adults. They all Dulce in the room or the ones that are sort of mucking things up and empty suits. And but the players themselves just are awesome. Every player that you mention though is under twenty five right? Like, I mean, a young player people that you're talking about for the most part. Do you think I wonder if the adults who I mean Dmitri, I mean, literally, I feel bad even like, you know, enumerating and picking out names because you're gonna leave someone off. I I mean, I think one theory, obviously, when federal doll Jovic Maury are terrific, and the, you know, obviously, the analogs on the women's side when the people the top of the game are but cooling accommodating and thoughtful, right the person, right number thirty seven isn't going to be a jerk. I so I. I think a lot of this is probably top down and leaders setting culture. But I just you know, I did these interviews for tennis channel, and you'd sort of hang out and wait for the players to come and got. I mean, just men women old Yang veteran American Chile. Like in the middle of the interview tried to look over to congratulate Mackey McDonnell the player he had just played. He said to me. Oh, just this guy's really good. You know, how good he is try. I mean, it's not like some of that in one after another sport was like trying to impress upon the media, how good the competitor. I mean, I just find men women old young rookies veterans.

"sharipova" Discussed on The Right Time with Bomani Jones
"And everything else because of what her life has been at that tournament in the residual scars that have come from the way that she has been treated at that tournament. And it's worth noting that we got other tournaments, we can point to with the way that she has been treated. And we read enough over the last twenty years about the way that she and her sister have been treated on this tour and it all came out at that moment. Perhaps human perhaps understandable. Can't do it. Right. Is that unfair maybe. Can't do it. It's up Lezak as, oh, then she winds up losing. Now, here's something I wanna point out though in this again, my point that I've been making here is what's it becomes about Serena. It's about what she represents, not about what she actually did not check this out. I'm reading this now from the guardian. Top tennis umpires considering forming a union because they believe Carlos Rommel's. The empire was quote hung out to dry unquote by the thority during and after the US open women's final despite uphold in the rules in sanctioning, Serena Williams. Many officials were also left angry with the fact that the International Tennis Federation took nearly forty eight hours to defend Rommel's on Monday afternoon by which time the women's association and US in association supported Williams claims of sexism after she was given a game penalty for a behavior during her defeat by the Asaka. Now, do you think that this right here is just about what happened was Serena, or do you think that this is about with Serena represents? Because I think that this is about what Serena represents, and all of a sudden they need to squad up about what took place they are you serious like you really think that that was what was necessary here. Is that the issue at plate or what's really going on. Is the way that Rommel's was treated. Really. Really. Saint about Serena, hardly any of it has actually been about Serena, because if you talk about what is about Serena was like, what has happened here that goes on with her then? Yeah, this is to be pretty interesting. I find the discussion of gender in the role that it played in this to be interesting because here's what I don't know. And I love somebody to answer this. I don't know. If it was Maria Sharapova who had done these things, do you think she would have been penalized the same? Because I am inclined to think no. Right? And I don't have an answer for that, but I am inclined to think, no, it's off. I'm inclined to think that, no, that that would not happen with Sharipova. It ain't just gender situation right by God understand argument that women feel where they say, you know, I don't feel is though I can express my anger at work the same way that men do. I don't feel like I can express my anger the same way. Somebody's other men that were do either. But what I don't want to do is dismissed the experience of these women. I don't want to dismiss what they see when they witnessed as I don't want to dismiss how they feel. But that's my question, and I think that it's a fair question because I felt like a lot of the things that women said that they noticed while watching this into things that kind of hit them and kind of trick not trigger, but you know, like resonated with them would be a better way to put it. Like I personally have felt some of those things and I don't wanna be to do that's out here. Like will be hoping to me too, but I do want to better understand like what took place there. Because I do feel as though and this is a guest that we could probably find examples of other women speaking to an empire in a very similar way and not being penalized in the way that Serena Williams was. But I just wish for people on all sides of this matter, if we could find a space to have one of the most fascinating athletes that we've ever seen to be able to talk about the things that happened with her and actually like have them be about what happened in that moment with her..

Deputies say a woman called nine one one and boyfriend had assaulted her and he had a gun when deputies got to the house the woman and her three kids were hiding in a bedroom deputies ordered the man to cooperate and a deputy shot him when he didn't Auburn police hope surveillance video will help track down the people who left a clerk for dead after he collapsed inside a shell gas station. Police say two teams, then rob the store and never called for help. Komo's Steve McCarron spoke to the clerk's boss discuss Angela Sharipova to watch the confrontation inside her store Saturday night that ended with her employees in the hospital. Auburn police hit a clerk tried to charge. A man for a couple of pepperoni sticks. That two teens were eating near the counter get into an argument, then one of the teams handed the clerk a dollar Bill causing him to get upset saying that this is wrong, and you have to pay for it. And at this point, he's a few steps back to go. Behind the counter, and that's collapsed instead of calling for help police say one of the teams took the dollar back from the clerk then bolted with the other two teams returned a couple of times to steal cigarettes in one hundred seventy eight dollars from the cash. Register their actions. Could cost somebody their life. Several minutes passed before another her comes into find the clerk on the ground. He starts performing CPR as another customer calls for help. That's komo's Steve McCarron teachers and some parents into coma accused the district of stalling in contract negotiations. They say it's forcing the twenty eight thousand students into a fourth day of no school today with no end to the strike. Incite KOMO skeet. Donald report the district argues, it's the teachers who won't budge at the bargaining table. Teachers have shifted their strike lines from the schools to district headquarters. Soaping administrators inside. We'll hear them district on about twenty million dollars that came for compensation blocking that money and get it in the salaries for district has requested the state fact-finding arbitrator to come in and get an independent look at both sides, and issue are non binding opinion. The facts will be clear to us to the teachers unions are teachers to the community that we do not have the money to pass along to teachers, just all install install. And now they've called for this. Very obscure fact-finding arbitration that is by design non-binding. And so it really feels like a tactic. Whether it's tactic or not bottom line. It could take days to get all the facts, which means to strike we'll continue to stretch on Keith Eldridge. It's thirty four minutes.

"All the commotion here. Sharipova Sheena employees never got the names of the good Samaritans who stepped in to help the clerk because of them. She says he has a fighting chance tonight back to you. That has worked for for about three years. Now, he has a wife three kids, including eight month old boy co workers in are trying to set up a fundraising page to help out with these mounting medical bills. We're tracking hurricane Florence live on the radar tonight still growing and getting stronger as it barrels towards the Carolinas and Virginia forecasters say by tomorrow Florence could be close to a category five hurricane capable of catastrophic damage. It's expected to make landfall on Thursday tonight store shelves are wiped clean and gas. Stations are bracing for another rush tomorrow. Some major highways will actually switch direction. So all lanes lead people away from the coast more than a million people have in order to evacuate tonight. President Trump declared emergencies in the Carolinas which frees up federal assistance and while crews mobilized he urged people on the coast to take necessary precautions, and if you're traveling to the east coast this week, you may be able to change your flight for free. American airlines. Southwest Airlines, delta and United are waiting flight change fees for trips in the storm's path and Morgan bowling is tracking the storm carefully. They certainly are. They have a sprawling campus and a Dreamliner assembly plant right in the path of Florence and the company's encouraging workers to heat evacuation orders. In fact, it's suspending operations in north Charleston tomorrow, so employees can get to safety following says it will only resume work once it's safe to do. So and with L, let's get to Shannon, O'Donnell where Shannon were watching. Florence. Where's expected to? Well, let's check out on the track. First of all, here's the satellite picture, and you can see how much Florence has grown over the weekend. A beautiful storm at this point really strengthening over the weekend can say it's still very far off the coast line from the Carolinas. Wind speed though sustained at one hundred and forty miles per hour, occasionally was stronger gusts than that it's still so far away as you saw. It's over eleven hundred miles southeast of Charleston moving right now at a good pace west-northwesterly at thirteen. But therein lies the issue because it's not going to continue to move that fast. This is the track we're talking about Florence taking over the next several days. It will move at about three hundred miles per day. Until it lands.
"sharipova" Discussed on The Black Guy Who Tips Podcast
"I'm thankful Sereno 'cause she gives me an African American woman so much hope for what my future hose. Yeah, I was thinking about that today. I remember when Richard Williams just seen as the crazy black dude that had no business when his daughters out there. And I remember believing that when I was in high school and part of my college, I was like, oh yes, this do government his daughters lives. He's out here also Joe Jackson shit, you know, like and I got out of college and I realized like, wait, I really only heard that from white media people already in tennis that wanted me to believe that this black outsider and his family didn't belong. And he needed to hand his daughters over to white people to instruct them how to play tennis because he can never teach them the game the right way. As far as they were concern. Right. And when you see interviews with him now and stuff, you see how much of what people would label as craziness, devotion, delusional, whatever. You see how much of that was actually about protecting his daughters, right? Because he knew there was going to be on some bullshit. He didn't want him to tear them up and tear them down where they would could not be the women that they are today because I've member, they're still like an interview like years ago where I don't remember Lena Serena. One was acting like a question in a way to question with phrases, basically trying to basically attack her character or data stepped in like what you not gonna do this bullshit doing this interview, right? And see they would label him hostile and paint him as being problematic for doing shit like that because the white people that is problematic, you know? And this is not, you know, some lavar ball shit. I know you know, people were try to. Maybe painted as such, but it's not like lavar ball people. Wanna group it out together, but lavar ball signs are outsiders coming into a white sport and being judged called ugly and out his shit. He just really releasing his sons and promotes them and stuff. I'm not, you know, and believes in his shoe brand. And maybe here we'll be right in twenty years, but it's not the same battle is Richard Williams trying to get to black daughters from copying into a very white racist world. And I think in a way, only a father only another black person that was that dedicated to those girls would be able to prepare them to become Serena and Venus that we know now people that for all accounts purposes dominate the shit out of the competition while at least exhibiting a level of composure that other worldly. I mean, like I said. Said they've called her racial slurs our entire career that people talk talking about her body in negative ways and. People writing about, you know, she shouldn't be in swimsuits issues in geology, shouldn't take Instagram photos with her belly what she's pregnant, and she also should now keep in mind if Sharipova wanted to do that. That's fine. You know, Sharipova could be a whole last model and that's fine. That's just the way the game is, but it's Rena does. It is wrong. You know, people writing about her body as she has them sort of advantage that white women don't have, but they can't tell you exactly what you know. Say these other women have started lifting weights as if she has no skills, and she's just overpowering every person she plays like nice tennis is a game of skill to. Here's that interview when she was fourteen years old. No. Barry. You say to Venus. Why..
