"steffi graf" Discussed on The Body Serve

"This is such a good question and i have truly agonized over the answer. I think it's i want to say that it's jovic easily. Oh who's career will be most hurt by like whose legacy yeah because like in hadn't been done since nineteen sixty-nine it'd be a much longer time right. There's a lot at stake. Whereas the serena miss was manufactured the drama and hype surrounding it was manufactured to a great extent the margaret court record. Okay we know that didn't become a thing until the mid to thousands right right okay. But she was trying to do something that steffi graf had done who in my mind is really heard her chief rival for goat status. Novak i mean the fact that has not been done in men's tennis sets novak apart because he got so close. I don't think he needed that. To eventually. become the goat of manhattan. He does have two rivals. Were active players who are really really close and can best him in certain categories but also pale in comparison and other categories that are normally used for goat criteria. This is why. I think it would hurt him more. Because it'd be one of those things that the other two will never be able to have. That's in those conversations right. It's one more happiness. Feather serena doesn't really have the what's the word that competition for god on the women's side. Well this is complicated. Because serena has won four slams in row two times non-calender calendar year but martina lava one six limbs in a row in never got a calendar year grand slam steffi. Graf had the golden slam in eighty eight. I think there there are. There's a lot of competition. If you're looking at pure numbers with serena with novak. Let's say he wins two more majors and the other two. Don't it's done dusted. His legacy is secured grand slam. Be damned but you know people are gonna make all these different arguments on the men's side. There's still all these different metrics that people will use if you're into that kind of stuff. I'm saying women's i. It settled where six years old from serena not winning the county or slam and who israeli looking at it like i'm a big black mark on her career bright. It's more like a. Oh my god. I can't believe that happened to vinci. How did the pressure get to her. You know what that was like what that might have been like for her. And the incredible pressure that was manufactured that she bought into. Who wouldn't at that point. That makes it more of a dramatic event. Then what we witnessed with novak. But i don't think it means or would have meant as much to serena's career as it will are would have to novak's because as you said serena's already had this rena slam. What twice. yeah she was never going to get a golden slam that steffi had serena's status is already cemented. I think at this point. What genuinely feel that. It's no shame to either that they didn't get no. you know. this is not what this is trying to answer this question. I think it would have meant more to novak legacy. If he had gotten went. All right do you buy any of that. I haven't decided if i agree. But i think you make a very strong argument. I think right down the middle. It's not nineteen sixty-nine anymore it's not nineteen eighty eight. It's twenty twenty one and this should is almost impossible right. It might be the one of the highest achievements in all sports so no shame to either of them for not accomplishing it. I think the non-calender slam is it's not the same like it's almost the same. But it's not the same because the pressure is completely different. Eric also asks. How do you think the runs a kanu and fernandez impact. The progress of cocoa gov motivating or frustrating. Far from me to think. I can get into the mind of teenagers. You have to ask minskoff. Because i know how i would feel i would be pressed. Hissed own repressed. Yes it takes not much for you to get to that state of prostitute. I would be so mad. But the thing that sets athletes professional athletes apart from me is the professional athletes v. Thing the only thing the only thing is that professional athletes can often use that as fuel and it may not happen tomorrow..

"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

"Just may be the most rewarding to do that. You do today. How about some tennis miss? All right. I my, my friends, Mr. album, and Mr Ryan, that they know how passionate I am about tennis. It was really the first sport when I was a kid in sports writing, thanks to the great, bud Collins that I actually made any money I saw all aboard. I saw board McEnroe Wimbledon tennis. And I and Bob. Mitch. No, I appreciate this time in men's and women's tennis, where three guys have won a combined total of fifty two majors, which compares to twenty-six for board McEnroe Connors. Think about that. They've won twice as many majors, and counting as board McEnroe and Connors. And on the other side of the sport, we have, you know, Serena Williams, who is twenty three majors pass Steffi Graf trying to get to Margaret Court and she she and Federer are both going to turn thirty eight this year. It's almost impossible to wrap your mind around this. But Mitch we're talking about this before the thing, what young this canon from from Fort Lauderdale did on Saturday, makes me think that it's going to be very difficult for Serena other than maybe at Wimbledon. If she gets a good draw in a good schedule to, to get to twenty four she doesn't play enough tennis now and she doesn't move as well. And I said to Mitch. Before we started today, there's a thing that went on that I saw in this match that went on for a long time with tiger. Woods even after he came back. The aura is gone. This kid was Mitch. She wasn't afraid of her. Yeah. No. There was a lot of pre pre match discussion about the ten in history and, and her thoughts about Serena on, and it was pretty clear. She lost, by the way this morning. She's at the French Open. Yeah. Okay. Well anyway, yes. No, I think that's the parallel between. To tiger. In terms of this fact, that generation grew up worshipping him and putting posters on the wall are, you know now they're here? And, you know, the pregnant the dragon breathing fire in, and they don't care. The, the maybe the dragon isn't breathing. Capable breathing fire too much anymore. But, you know, no, they don't care. And they, they're ready to to, you know, withstand whatever we're going to get from the from the demigods that they once worshipped. Well. It seems almost tragic that she, you know, someone gets to twenty three and and just can't get that twenty fourth. And of course, it Margaret corden. It's a sketchy twenty. It's a sketchy twin because eleven was at eleven of those. Australian open. We're basically she. She just had a she just had a beat a kangaroo on the other side of the court, there was nothing. Nobody don't only Australians were playing. But yet and still, there was a piece in the Washington Post that not an uncommon piece that said, well, you know, she's still, she's still making her point. Serena, just by being there, you know, because she, you know, she's there, and she's proving that motherhood and age and all these things don't stop you. And and I don't know. Maybe that's why she continues to play on, because let's face it, if Serena's not playing tennis. What's her platform? You know, it's a big difference between being active and not it's a big difference between having your talk show on TV or trying to, you know, make a point when you don't you know, you don't have in every night, opportunity or every dapper to do this is her talk show, this is stage and maybe she continues to play because she wants to make statements about the world and sport and all the rest of it. But in terms of winning. You know this is a winning society..

So I things are going great. She wins trillion opened in Ninety-seven stirs up at the French Open by serving underhanded epigraph vote off the court. But then she goes on to the lay at Wimbledon. Unfortunately, then she just positive for snow, which she did is let's what they love about. Our writing room is like it's really we are going to we're going to get Nisha. We're going to go big. We're going to go niece. We're going to go. Now, we're going to go eighty six we're going to go ninety four. You don't know. Also, we might have a revolutionary war thing. Like, you just don't know what you're going to get last night. We cut a joke because we couldn't remember if we'd already made it, and it was a Notting hill reference. And it was I'm just a dragon Queen standing in front of a murderous asking her to surrender. So how does the Martina Hingis reference come in because it goes on for like two minutes? It's all of Martinez tennis career the ups and downs. I forgot that she got popped for drug offence. A lot of research and detail in your Martina hanging story what will happen. There was as we Aaron was trying to figure out a great analogy. For something that has a lot of ups and downs. And we wanted to get through the battle scenes quickly because it was just a lot of carnage as a lot current is in the all the ideas that were coming up for Sunday had a lot of ups and downs to weren't feeling quite on the Gaya thrones brand win all of a sudden Martina Hingis says underhand serve to Steffi Graf in the ninety nine French Open just leaped into my head. And I was like oh my God. It's Martina Hingis his tennis career, which when anything sounds like. Oh my God. It's Martina Hingis tennis career adjacent to the battle of winter fell. I think it's just great comedy. You know, it's going to be good. When you are looking at an episode like last night. Do you look to see how other people are joking about something to make sure that you're doing something different? I think by default of just you know, what this show is we are already doing something different. But I- additionally wanna have safety nets in place by looking on Twitter seeing what everyone's talking about like, for example, the coffee Cup this morning everyone's talking about the coffee Cup. So how can we do it in a way where we're not actually like directly saying it? But like weaking at it. So like we had spoiler alert. We had placed different coffee cups in our set. But we never mentioned it. You know, we're trying to play a little bit cooler. And so where does that stuff fall in? We're where does the stuff all that? We want to talk about that. We think is important, but not say the same things that all the other jokes that are being made on Twitter because they're being made instantly while people were watching, and we don't want it. We want to make sure that we're serving a different audience in a different type of joke. And also like sometimes when we all get onset like magic will happen occasionally from like some improv on that. Or like when our guests comes in with a specific experience or they said that they went. We get a lot of funny stuff like that to like from the people who get to work with like last week with Gabrielle making a color purple joke. That wasn't in the script that was just her coming in and just bringing more magic to the show.

Jonathan Van Ness's 'Gay Of Thrones' Web Show Is Back

"Welcome back to the frame. I'm John horn. You've certainly heard of game of thrones the HBO series that is now in its eighth and final season. But what about gay of thrones gave thrones as a funny or die web series? That's been recapping game of thrones episodes ever since season three. The show is hosted by Jonathan van Ness. You might know him as the hairstylist and grooming expert on the Netflix show queer eye each week, a different guests like Gabrielle union or on a affairs sits down and Jonathan stylus chair for a pretend haircut and the to get talking about that weekend's episode of game of thrones with countless jokes and pop culture. References. Here's a clip from today's episode with actor and comedian Camille Johnny about a pivotal game of thrones scene between sir c and Tyrian. Lancaster? I bet you but evil no volume Carol Brady goes no dice. She's like, don't you tear us maternal instinct's against me. I am just as indicative and unreasonable as Amen that was recorded just yesterday, the funny or die studios in Hollywood where I visited a chat with Jonathan van Ness and Aaron Gibson the series creator and director, she's like don't you dare us. My maternal instinct's against me, I has been dictated and unreasonable as any man. She's like, don't you tear us nine maternal instinct's against me. I am just as reasonable. And I am just as and unreasonable as any man. When I sat down with Erin Gibson, and Jonathan van Ness after the shoot I ask van as how making time for gay of thrones works logistically with all his commitments for queer eye season. Seven shows the last season, I was in Atlanta shooting queer eye. So I would shoot queer eye Tuesday through Friday and get on a plane, and then come here do gave thrones get back on the plane, go back to Atlanta. And now this time I have said spoke to New York, and so Sunday mornings, I get up and I pop on a plane, and I get here, and then I come to show with everyone. And then I go home, and well, then I pitch all my jokes before everyone else gets pitch their jokes, which is really nice to me. So everyone's could stay up till midnight. And I tap out at night. And I'm like, oh my God. I'm so tired, which is the joke. But really I am. It's a lot like. We need you to be amazing on camera dies need to go to bed. What is it? Like when you guys are watching it is it like being Theodore everybody's talking about to the screen like, there's just constant banter. You making knows what does it sound like this new method where we're doing like one of our people will yell out the number. So it's like a scene one seemed to because we're all kind of writing while we're watching it. So there is some healing of the screen usually from me, but we turn the lights off we have snacks. And we right. We really are. There's a lot of typing are other tradition is that we always have ten degrees. We've had ten degrees every single year and shocked. Not sick of it. There are so many recaps of game of thrones. And what's amazing to me is how quick and how thorough they are? And when you're thinking about how you were going to both recap and episode and then do something. That's funny. How do you figure out? What is I? Because is it important that you get the story. Right. I and then at the jokes are what order they come in. I think it's always about serving the purpose of how Jonathan has regurgitated this show. So in my mind is always funny. I, but I do want this to be a cheat sheet for people who maybe don't watch game of thrones. And maybe one not feel like they're an outcast in society at work. So they do know what's going on. But first and foremost, it's about making this show funny, and allowing Jonathan to shine his very specific and hilarious light on a show. That is the most McCall thing on TV. The other thing that you guys seem to be really intentional about is making sure that you have the most latest pop culture references possible. So. So you just did an episode where you have a mayor Pete reference. There's a reference to the Boeing seven thirty seven max is that always like what happened that day that we can incorporate how do you think about what is and is not funny or worth including well, I have to say, you know, in in the episode from last week. It was all about Martina Hingis. This battle had more downs than Martinez. Hang stories his career. So I things are going great. She wins drilling open in ninety seven. Well, then she screws up at the French Open by serving underhanded, stuffy graph and gets booed off the court. But then she goes on to the lay at Wimbledon. Unfortunately, then she just positive for snow, which she denies. Let's what they love about. Our writing room is like it's really we are going to we're going to get an each we're going to go big. We're going to go niche gonna go. Now, we're gonna go eighty six we're going to go ninety four you don't know. Also, we might have a revolutionary war thing. Like, you just don't know what you're going to get last night we joke because we couldn't remember if we'd already made it, and it was a nodding hill reference, and it was.

"Of whether people in your life and you've seen develop actually. We've gone along here in TV history. Can they cover a tornado watch with the lower third? This couldn't have covered it this way actually watch. Yes. That means that they're just conditions are right. A warning is an actual funnel cloud was spotted says she saying it's a warning. But that's just way too, hyper vigilant, you know, to to break into the mass branded it's a split screen. Unless like, I said, it's second Tiger Woods. I would not do it. And I think what really tick people off, apparently, what's hyper sensitive here is calling a death rights to the TV station. That's just stupid. Audio. Was one of the biggest we've said it yesterday was one of the biggest sports events in history. Just was so these people this is. After this was their Beatty. Raleigh just talking about. This thing turned out to be mostly nothing NBC ABC probably went to the weather because they're not airing the masters, so they could have stayed with a master's. And if you are worried about the tornado, you could go to NBC ABC, so there so this all comes down to TV competition in the market, right? Exactly. Yeah. But this isn't the first time this is happening. This got you. And I talking about some amazing things. First of all, let's go to the one that a lot of us. Remember hearing about I wasn't around for you were watching this thing for sure you weren't around for it. But there was something called the Heidi game in TV history. Where this is really what changed I was really happy about it because they showed Heidi. This is NBC. I think yes. So it's called the Heidi game because the Oakland Raiders are playing the New York Jets. So they stayed with the Oakland Raiders, but on the east coast, they went to the Heidi movie, they were scheduled to show Heidi, and they work at it was like probably like six o'clock, and they work at a move off NBC. Right. And so they went to the get an Oakland scores. Two touchdowns in the final minute to beat the jets forty three thirty two. But Heidi was on in New York. So Natan see it. No, it probably didn't hear about it either. Now. And it's it's now in this changed sports broadcasting in that they will stick with a game most likely until the end, and they'll they'll take delay. They'll move off whatever they have scheduled there. This changed a lot of stuff. Seven o'clock NBC switchboards were jammed by viewers phoning to inquire about the night schedule preventing the plan change from being communicated Heidi began as scheduled preempting the last moments of that game. That's amazing though viewers lost it now. Hopefully, call it death threats to the TV station, but they probably did. But this is all on the east coast. This was a network decision to do this. Yes. And this was nineteen sixty eight November seventeenth. So then we had another sporting event that really ticked off, Dan rather. He was in Miami. And he was doing a special coverage of. From miami. 'cause the pope was in town, right? John Paul the second big news event. Right. So he's this was September thirteenth nineteen eighty-seven and he got super angry because the US open Steffi Graf was losing to some nobody and they stayed with the tennis. So he allowed he got out of his news anchor seat, and they came to it. He was gone when the and there was an empty chair. So they had to go to black for six minutes. That story. I remember seeing the thing about they went to him. And he wasn't there that that's why. Because he so he was in a huff compete huff. He got out and he just left. It literally had a black screen for six minutes. Six minutes on a network black screen cooking. You can't go to Heidi or something. Play the raiders jets game. The TV coverage of that. When he was told that the match between Steffi Graf and Lori McNeil whom I've never heard him sorry with closer than expected that the evening news would be truncated. He telephoned New York protest to Howard stringer, the president of CBS news Howard on the phone. And he says he told him that if this broadcast does not go on at six thirty s schedule he would not be in his anchor chair. They should schedule fill in. Couldn't you see him doing that too. He was there. So they couldn't find him for six minutes. They couldn't like pry him out of his office or the back office or wherever you're sitting in the Miami station there and to grab mcginnis on the chair, and he just talked. Doing mass. He he they got the frequency from Kenneth. Rather was he was involved in some bizarre things. I read his book the camera never blinks, and it's really cool book because he talks about television early on a he talks about how he broke the fact that John F Kennedy was dead. He got the priest on the phone. He AP by seventeen minutes. He got the priest on the phone and the pre says, yes, I gave him last rites. And he went on and said, the president is dead. He was the first to do it. Really? Yes. And he in that moment. Besides the the empty chair moment there. What's the frequency? Kenneth was if you've ever heard that REM song, what's the frequency Kenneth? It's Dan rather story. The guy is just I think he was walking to the studio one day thing. He says someone beat him up. Right. So somebody grabbed him and threw against a wall in New York as he's near the the CBS studio and started yelling at him. Frequency. They took them off the air and put on Connie Chung who used to come gliding and just ten seconds before they would go to her news and she sat down one time, and they went to her as she had put on her microphone watch hooked on her sweater. Whole forearm in hand the show over her breasts. Hear you. Okay. She's a little hooked they're gonna pull the microphone off. Right. The level ear so. Yeah. Well, her watch was stuck on her sweater. She had to undo it once she package, but yeah, it's amazing. You would you have no idea. What goes on behind the scenes? Can you imagine? Did you ever meet, Dan rather? No, I'm Peter Jennings in you liked him very much. He came down because we're ABC affiliate. Right. Yeah. Yes. Side I dressed on with my microphone because we were doing promo for and I'm like, well, whatever ways it's headed whatever it's directed. And he goes, I dress on the left and reg Mellor my co anchor takes me side afterward. He goes, that's a haberdashery term care. All my God. Really see that makes it sound like Peter is like a real snob. Snobby staying at the Ritz. Okay. Oh, he had to throw that out there. Wow. Left. Just look it up. I'm not going to tell you. No, no.

"LGBT group has cut ties with tennis great Martina Navratilova after she said, it was a form of cheating for transgender women to be allowed to compete in women's sports. New York-based athlete ally, which supports LGBT sports people called the comments transphobic and removed the eighteen time grand slam winner from its advisory board and as an ambassador. So let's get this straight. The most accomplished and famous lesbian woman athlete. Is now kicked off you're bored. Because she has an opinion that you don't like. Individuals born as men. Can't then get to compete as women. You can argue anything you want about transgenderism. But that part is not anything other than a fact that's not in dispute. These individuals were born as men biologically. Now, the alterations that are made to become a woman. Fine. But it does not change the biological differences. And I'm not talking about a Weiner. I'm talking about strength. I'm talking about several biological factors that differentiate women. We can argue as to why those occurred the different roles that were intended for the sexes. But there is no doubt. Science will tell you that men are born with more muscle mass than women. No doubt about that. So to say that to things that are unequal at birth somehow become equal because you wish them to be sure there are differences among each of the individual sexes. Martina Navratilova had more muscle mass than Chris Evert from their earliest days. She widened that gap with weightlifting, and maybe some steroids along the way, she got faster. She got stronger, she got bigger show. So honed her game. In ways that steroids can. She's the best serve and volleying woman of all time. She's an incredible ambassador for the sport. She played the game the right way, she played for an incredible amount of time. She played during a time of one of the great robberies, which is necessary to be considered one of the greats of all time. Have you seen the thirty for thirty? It's just fantastic. They sit down onto couches in a sit in a living room, and they just talk about their days, and they go through some of their great matches. And of course, Chris ever got the better over at the front end. But towards the back in Martinez training, regimen and strength and speed and competitive zeal. She ended up got to work Chris Evert could could barely made beater, but there's such respect for between these two women for each other Navratilova wrote in the Sunday Times that it was insane that transgender athletes who decide to become female had achieved honours, quote that were beyond their capabilities as men. You know, the great irony is. Men are getting over on women. By becoming women. It's the ultimate domination. And if it continues, then men will dominate men's sports exclusively, and they will dominate women's sports primarily. Individuals born as boys will within ten years dominate women's sports. And women will be left forced with this decision. Which side are you picking because we're going to make you choose? You don't just get to sit there. And I suppose if you don't live in the sporting world or care about women in the sporting world Martinez problem is she gives a damn it's a curse to give a damn it, really. Is it's an awful awful curse. Martina has done more to mentor other women and to promote women's sports. She she's done more to promote the sport of tennis, especially women's tennis. Than any other athlete by far Steffi Graf as great a player issue was her career was much shorter. And she never cared to be an ambassador for the sport. She wanted to be Andre Agassi's wife, NBA, great wife, and if you read his autobiography you'll say that that's exactly what she was. She's the one that finally convinced him to take that damn hairpiece off go bald. Yeah. It was a hairpiece all along. I didn't know. I know my wife read the bio she read it out to me and Steffi he finally won. He won a championship. He wants supposed to win and his wife said, why don't you come clean? Apparently. He was always worried that it was going to come off. People are gonna know he.

"Are great tennis analyst who brought up the point that this is like tennis is different than any other sport you in golf you can't play defense. Right. You can go out and shoot your best score. And let's see you shoot a sixty five some shoot a sixty three. Comeback beat you. There's nothing you can do. In tennis. You have to close it out. There is no way around it. You can't stall. You can't milk the clock. Pam sums are best. You've got to basically make the other person tap out. There's no time clock. You can't run it out. You've got to win the last point. And Serena Williams ended up having three more match points. If you games later on the serve and had a great crack a second serve. So it wasn't just the Serena lost serve after the footfall. And the ankle roll. It was also that she didn't take advantage of the three match points where played great on all of them. So again, that's that's the thing. About tennis that makes it different. I mean, you can't really coach they're beginning to change those lines. So we were looking at okay. What are the other greatest collapses in tennis specifically on the women's side? And unfortunately, two of them to the same person, which will be Nevada. She was famously up into the ninety three Wimbledon final. She was up four one and a point from being five one up in the third set against Steffi Graf, and she gave the slightest of openings and growth came back to win in that shoop reeled off five straight games. She didn't take it to tiebreaker or of Wimbledon would have been extra games at that point. She warned that third set at six four, and then the other one which comes to mind was two years later, Chanda Rubin. The American who I've worked with before. Wimbledon in the past was down five love forty love to Yano Nevada in the third round of the French Open in ninety five and she came all the way back down anymore. Can't be more than that. Mike. You brought up a point because of who you were going. Against and what was at stake in the semifinals as opposed to a third round of the French Open. You can make the argument that what happened with Serena was a bigger comeback think. It was absolutely agree. Comeback. Not by games. I'm trying to. Bye bye comeback. This. This definitely big. You know, what's interesting too is. I wonder I'm always fascinated because Serena's span of dominance has been so long. But I remember when I was a kid. It was around the time. I was in middle school going into high school when her and Venus both stepped away and talked about wanting to do more with fashion do more outside of tennis. And you thought maybe that was the end, and then you had that career that existed after that, which is now spanned almost a decade and a half at this point. When do we start having the father time conversation about Serena like what what is it going to take as far as slip up on a stage? Like this for us to look and say, maybe her best days are behind her. Or maybe we're starting to deal with a decline. That's real. I'm not saying I'm ready to have it off of this one quarterfinal loss. But I just wondered because we do this with all time greats. We look for that crap. Start to try and break, the demise. Hell it's how we ended up with the patriots in the Super Bowl. Maybe. Well, it's interesting because she's thirty-seven Federer's thirty-seven came up short. We thought their expectations. Yeah. So enjoy it while you can and hopefully she'll continue that pursuit.
