ATP Player Council’s Stakhovsky, Simon Ready to Take Down WTA Women’s Tennis

He went on to elaborate, “When it comes to equality, it’s not equality, it’s business. Pure revenue and business, it’s nothing personal…I mean, why are male models underpaid compared to women?…So, [in tennis] are we supposed to pay women more just for looks?…Joint events are in the past. We will split all the events we can. The ATP is done with [joint] events on the tour with the WTA, so it will be only Grand Slams and that’s it.”

Tennis-X Barbs: Grass is Greener for Spaniards…and Slower

New ATP Player Council member and U.S. TV commentator Justin Gimelstob speaking to a D.C. radio show on Anna Kournikova: “Hate’s a very strong word. I just despise her to the maximum level, right below hate. I think she falls into the Marcelo Rios ‘Scumbag’ category….And this whole bluff about her retiring because of her back? She had the yips on her serve, she can’t get her serve on the court. Wait until you see on July 23, she’s gonna be serving 40 miles an hour and I’m gonna be just plugging it down her throat…We do exhibitions together and I’ll mock her, and make fun of her. I’ll just make her know that she’s stupid…I’m sure she’ll rue the day that she has to come here and actually share space with me…I have no attraction to her, because she’s such a douche…I really have no interest in her. I wouldn’t mind having my younger brother, who’s kind of a stud, nail her and then reap the benefits of that.”
