No, her opinions have no effect on the great results she produced.

Yeah my tennis knowledge is so limited. You on the other hand must have heaps of tennis knowledge, can anyone vouch?

They should consider someone outside of Australia? And at the same time they could give Margaret Court the finger? The solution would obviously be naming it the Bill Tilden show court.

Re: Should Tennis Australia change the name of the Margaret Court show court @ the AO

If there were a set criteria, they shouldn't take it away as freedom of speech. However, a business trying to sell tickets should strive to avoid offense, and these comments were clearly ignorant and offensive. I still think Guccione Stadium would be a good idea



Matosevic, Hanescu, Lorenzi, Kukushkin, Chiudinelli, Gulbis, Bozoljac, Gabashvili, Hernych, Brown, Garcia-Lopez, Rosol, Zeballos, Istomin, Kohlschreiber, Tursunov, Robert, Gonzalez, Monaco, Thiem, Seppi

I guess she didn't get the memo on being PC. Bravo I say.

Why? To prove tennis Australia isn't homophobic? if she was an Aussie it would make sense...

Re: Should Tennis Australia change the name of the Margaret Court show court @ the AO

I was under the impression she had the court named after her because of her achievements in tennis rather than her political views.

Shouldn't this be in Off Topic?
