    The Sports World is becoming a reflection of the Political World. It's very sad. First they prohibited Novak Djokovic from defending his title at the 2022 Australian Open. He was going for his 3rd straight Australian Open but because he was unvaccinated he was kicked out of Australia.

    Now we have this. The Whole World has turned into a Clown Show!

    As someone who thinks Putin was wrong to invade Ukraine, I just want to make it very clear that what Globohomo is doing to Medvedev is beyond disgusting. Everyone has a right to have and express their own opinion on Putin or any other subject, and to force an athlete to express a particular partisan opinion before letting him play is an act of totalitarian evil. Imagine if American athletes were forced to express support for Biden before being allowed to play (and I wouldn't be surprised if that actually happens at some point).

    I know some of us have different opinions on hot-button issues (that's what makes the Right superior to the Left, where everyone is a soulless sheep that blindly follows the Leader of the Week), but I hope we can all agree that what we have in common is stronger than what divides us.

    Polish star Iga Swiatek (pronounced shweeantetch?) effing polish names, beats BLM jap, don’t ask me any hard questions or I’ll cry mental health loser, Naomi Osaka, to win the Miami Open. Swiatek is the new world’s number one, now that Barty quit. She won the 2020 French Open, but otherwise, I’m barely familiar with her. She’s 5’9” with power and speed. With Barty’s retirement and the demise of the Williams brothers, maybe it’s Shweeantetch time.

    Carlos Alcaraz of Spain is in the finals of the Miami Open. He definitely has a dark skinned look. Nevertheless, he reminds me of a young Nadal. Speed, strength, and insane topspin in his shots.

    Move along, nothing to see here:

    Tennis world shocked after scores of players drop out of Miami Open

    Fifteen players have already dropped out of the Miami Open, an unprecedented number for a major sports event.

    The tennis world reacted with shock after favorites Paula Badosa and Jannik Sinner had to retire during the quarterfinals of the Miami Open. Badosa, soon to be the number three in the world, became unwell during her match against Jessica Pegula and left the court in tears.

    Badosa, who was comforted by her American opponent, decided to stop after consultation with her physiotherapist. Pegula reached the semifinals of the Miami tennis tournament for the first time in her career after Badosa’s resignation, reported Yahoo Sports.

    In the men’s tournament, the Italian phenomenon Jannik Sinner was forced to withdraw. He gave up after 22 minutes in the game against Francisco Cerundolo, the number 103 in the world ranking. “When I served at 3-1 and 30-0, I saw him bend over. It was very strange,” Cerundolo said during an interview. “I hope he’s okay, he’s a great player.”

    The 23-year-old Argentinian surprisingly reached the semifinals with his first participation in the master tournament in Miami.

    It was the second game in a row that ended prematurely for the tennis fans. Fans reacted with shock to the bizarre tennis day. “What is going on?” someone asked.

    Hmmm, are you trying to imply that these players weren't playing, let's say, with the spirit of Novak Djokovic indwelling them? Are you implying that these young and healthy players were not just coincidentally "unwell" after following non-conspiratorial health protocols from the omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient CDC? Surely not mate!!:p

    Iga Swiatek is the top ranked player in women’s tennis. She is on a 27 match winning streak going into the final of the Italian Open. Venus Williams holds the longest WTA winning streak at 35. By my math, if Swiatek wins today and then wins the French, her streak will be 34. She will be the favorite at the French. So, something to watch.

    Good to see some pushback! How anyone could consider Wimbledon professional after the Russian/Belarussian ban is beyond me.

    I laughed in the face of the clerk at my local store when i asked why they banned the Russian Vodka?! Was hilarious playing dumb and hear her say you don't watch the news?!

    Just like the anti-nuclear activists who boycotted French wine in the 90s because of French nuclear testing, the anti-vodka jihadis are exactly the type of hyper-partisan, obsessively political busybodies that every normal person secretly hates but is typically forced to go along with because in today's joke of a culture, the loudest, whiniest group typically gets their way. I've said this before and I'll say it again: Is it too much to ask for me to be able to order a Moscow Mule at a bar or restaurant and not a) discover that the drink is banned or b) have it taken as a show of support for Putin? I just happen to enjoy that particular drink. Not every single thing has to be political.

    On that subject and on a positive note, it's great to see that the ATP is taking action against Wimbledon for their politicized, "collective blame" attitude (and this collective blame only ever happens to athletes from White countries). The ATP is making a move in favor of sport being as it should be - non-political - and they deserve praise for that.

    The long Black domination of U.S. women's tennis is finally over. We'll see what Swiatek can do but we're certainly in an era when no female player can establish short-term dominance much less long-term dominance.

    And that's true of the Black female American players. The current top-ranked Americans are #9 Danielle Collins and #11 Jessica Pegula, both White. Madison Keys and Coco Gauff -- both hyped as "Great Black Hopes" -- are now ranked 22nd and 23rd respectively. Following them are three more White girls -- Amanda Anisimova (#28), Alison Riske (#43), and Shelby Rogers (#50). Sloane Stephens has fallen all the way to #64, while The Hulking Linebacker currently sits at #276, and Venus is considerably below that.

    Tennis is following the pattern of golf, where Tiger Woods was heralded as the harbinger of a Black takeover of the sport (lolol), and the Williams sisters were going to do the same in tennis. Instead, Blacks remain woefully under-represented in both sports, especially golf, and it's hard to fall back on the all-purpose cries of "racism" when both are individual sports. Woods and the Williams sisters were outliers, albeit very notable, very long-lasting ones, that the fake news media are still desperately clinging to for as long as they can.

    Jessica Pegula is half White and half Asian (her parents are the White husband/Asian wife couple, Terry and Kim Pegula, that own the Buffalo Bills). But you're right, the Great Black Takeover of tennis is never going to happen and American ladies' tennis actually looks like America again.

    Great Black Hope Madison Keys was just knocked out of the French Open by attractive Russian Veronika Kudermetova. Must be extra painful for the liberals.
