AndyMira Says:

Winners will get $3.5mil?Why oh why i didn’t choose to be a tennis player when i was a kid?


Danica Says:

My younger son after seeing Novak win and receiving the check: “Dad, you can also win a tennis tournament so we can get rich”.

The amount the 1st round losers get, equals a decent US salary.

Crazy.


James Says:

To reach even the first round of a slam is really really tough – 43 grand is not too much for that. Especially when you compare it to the corporate CEOs / wall street folks and the millions, or sometimes hundreds of millions they make every year, and for what?


J-Kath Says:

Oh My God

Nice, France : Suicide truck ran into people celebrating Bastille Day 30 dead and more than 100 people injured. Seeing it on BBC News Channel.


J-Kath Says:

People being told to stay inside. Absolute chaos.


Wog Boy Says:

What a bunch of cowards, aiming at defenseless people, women, kids…the tragedy is they are born and raised in France, raised to hate and disrespect everything what is not theirs, they have never integrated nor they will, since integration in infidel society is not their goal, their goal is something else.

mat4,
My sincere condolences to you people:(


skeezer Says:

“What a bunch of cowards, aiming at defenseless people, women, kids…”
Got your back on this one WB. Well said!


J-Kath Says:

Yes, Condolences to Mat 4 and Courbon.
So shocking and inhumane.


jane Says:

definitely: my heart goes out to everyone impacted in nice and beyond by this senselessness. :’(


AndyMira Says:

Sorry for what happened in Nice..very very sad..my deep condolences to all victim and their family over there..


Okiegal Says:

This is so terrible. You can’t go out and have a relaxing fun day……criminal behavior lurking everywhere…..so sad. I am so very sorry for the victims in Nice…..


Margot Says:

So sad, so dreadful.


Van Persie Says:

It is really terrible…84 deads…10 children among them…just unbelievable, and so damn sad…


SG1 Says:

At least to some degree, the world seems to have come unhinged. I know that some of this hysteria is due to the 24/7/365 media coverage that now exists but really…running people over, shooting little kids in elementary schools, attacks on minorities…it’s really all out of control. Devastating for the families that have to pick up the pieces.


SG1 Says:

France has a systemic problem with its inability to assimilate minorities and the disenfranchised into its society. It now appears that this problem will have to be dealt with or tragic things like this will continue to happen.

SG1 –

SG1 – “France has a systemic problem with its inability to assimilate minorities and the disenfranchised into its society.”

It’s more like France has a systemic problem with Muslims and disenfranchised that refuse to assimilate.

SG1 – “It now appears that this problem will have to be dealt with or tragic things like this will continue to happen.”

They will continue to happen as long as radical Islamists are welcomed by the Globalists and Open Borders crowd in Brussels and on the hard left. The problem is far bigger than France and is now well into the process to tear the EU apart as Euro culture and society are targeted with violence and crime by the “seething and lawless” newcomers. Lighting candles and doing things like calling the agents of violence and misogyny “cowards” – will do nothing. Stopping immigration and cleansing out the unwilling to assimilate will. None of these people blowing stuff up, doing the crime wave of theft, robbery, muggings, flouting all infidel law, killing Amanda Knox’s room mate, gang raping women in half a world away in Melbourne, let alone Stockholm, Glasgow, Rotterdam, Cologne – consider themselves cowards or criminals. They see themselves as the 1st wave of conquest.

PS – It also explains why the quite unpresidential Trump is in a dead heat for President with the most corrupt and most legally untouchable member of the American Ruling Elites.


chrisford1 Says:

In tennis related news – injury plagued Azarenka announces she is pregnant and will not be competing for a while, inc the Olympics. “Couldn’t be happier”.
While happy for her in return, and her unnamed boyfriend, a touch of sadness that a gifted player who showed so much promise winning Slams in 2012 and 2013 and taking Serena to the wire in others – is going to miss the entire prime of her career. Along with the injuries hobbling her since 2014, you can pretty well expect she will not be able to come back to tennis for at least 2 years. I lean right now on her odds of never returning to tennis.
