Coco Gauff got her period during her match today

Sexist statement.   :no: :no: :no:

Do you know that she also played 3 matches to qualify for the main draw?   Thats a lot of tennis, regardless of her age.

Did you even watch the match? Her cramps came on and it was over.

Her period came.

Still a stupid statement, no matter how many times you say it.

Truth hurts. Happens to a lot of players.. Especially Sharapova who had particularly bad menstruations as a teen.

And you know this how??? This sounds even more stupid than what you said about Gauff.  But anyway, enough of this foolishness. I am through with this subject.

I know because I watched tennis, and it was spoken of.

Please watch the coc math and you can see when it starts.

Naomi is Japanese-Haitian. She already has two grand-slam titles. And so called "Slo-Anne" already has a major. So what is the percentage of all female tennis players as far as winning a major title in their pro careers. To me, these players you love to hate on (due to their skin being a lil too dark for your tastes) have already had successful careers, more successful than 90 percent of all players who have played the game at that level. Grand slam titles, tour titles, endorsements etc. etc.

See, you tend to be shallow about your inherent intra-racism within the diaspora. You my guy, are a sad young "brotha". I really wish you would just kick rocks; oh ye champion of non-Africans. :tiptoe: :tiptoe:

Djokovic eases aside Bautista Agut to reach sixth final

https://www.wimbledon.com/en_GB/news/articles/2019-07-12/djokovic_eases_aside_bautista_agut_to_reach_sixth_final.html

Novak Djokovic has brought Roberto Bautista Agut’s extended Wimbledon stag celebration to a halt, defeating the No.23 seed 6-2, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 to reach the final here for the sixth time. The engaged-to-be married Spaniard was scheduled to be marking the end of his bachelorhood days on Ibiza with half a dozen mates. Instead the merry band thronged Bautista Agut’s player box with the intention of making Centre Court the most decorous party venue in history. With two wins over Djokovic already in 2019, Bautista Agut had a fine old time as he tested the defending champion, but after two hours and 49 minutes, this particular bash was done.

Federer edges Nadal to reach 12th final


Swiss sets up rematch with Novak Djokovic with victory over old rival in four compelling sets


https://www.wimbledon.com/en_GB/news/articles/2019-07-12/federer_beats_nadal_in_four_sets.html

Did it live up to its billing? Oh, yes. Was it as good as their 2008 Wimbledon final? No, but then again, that one was described as the greatest match ever played.

But did Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal do what they have been doing for the past 15 years and keep a worldwide audience enthralled from first ball till last? Oh, yes; a hundred times yes.

The two legends, GOATs, all-conquering champions – call them what you will – played the way that only they can, and only can against each other, for three hours and two minutes until Federer made his way into the final 7-6 (3), 1-6, 6-3, 6-4.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.
