From your article it looks like she is an IT worker, right?

Yeah, something like that. Somat already threw her first name around on Facebook, so it shouldn't be hard to track her down, but I didn't want to name her since she doesn't want to be involved and it's such a sensitive subject.

There is a huge difference in this respect between for example the US and France. I don't think Dominique Strauss-Kahn would have been arrested in France.

French female ministers decry sexual harassment - BBC News
I couldn't agree more with you, but that wasn't really what I intended to mean.

Our press is so desperate on their attempts to villanize everything arab to create a culture of fear and hatred that this story will likely not go public because it doesn't fit their standards. There's no way in hell they will make an Egyptian look good over southern Europeans.

The thing about stories like this is that it makes you think about how many of these "incidents" happen and are silenced... If that dude allows him self to walk into a room with a girl he's never seen before and spit "lets have sex" as his first words you realize this is not a new thing... He knows very well that he can do this.

And Polansky retweeted him, it's only a matter of time before the Big Four do the same, no?

-edit- Bester en Jenkins did as well, great to see players who actually care about this.

God, the ATP is such a joke. As is mainstream tennis "journalism."

Keep fighting the good fight, CK
