I don't know what the best part is. The ridiculous thread title, the fact that Blake is still playing a match, or the numerous references to the WTA in your signature.

I'm sure it will all end well.

Maybe not as offensive as politically incorrect and completely unnecessary...

Unnecessary maybe but it's not really offensive considering it isn't something vulgar or rude.

Really not sure tbh. Not been overly impressed by the glimpses I have seen of Tsonga, this week...but I consider him to be a tougher match for Blake, than Blake is for him. That said, I think Blake has been playing well, for the most part, this week...although he did go off the boil a little against Andreev (and against a better, and fresher, opponent, he probably wouldn't have got away with it so easily).

For the record, I'll go with Tsonga...I expect this match to be fairly tight, and Blake isn't exactly famed for his mental toughness.

Tsonga looks more like Obama than Blake imo.

OBAMA,BLAKE ,TSONGA regard themselves as black men,deal with it!!!only Tiger calls himself caublasian now he wants to be included in the black community what a fake

I believe the politically correct term is "zebra".

Tsonga will win this. If the big hitting ain't working then he has the ability to chance things up. The same can't be said of Blake.

Tiger is like 62,5% asian and 25% black, why would he be a black man? Asians deserve their sport idol too.

Also, Obama was raised by his white mother and grandparents. I dont know why you would deny that part of his heritage? I certanly dont think he would deny it.

I agree with Marc. And how do you know they tick black in the ballot box? And even if they did, it still doesn't mean they aren't biracial anyway. Black father, white mother.

whats the point in mentioning one's race? Treat biracials, blacks and whites equally.. as well as asians.

It's like me writing 'Battle of the Caucasians - WWW: Federer or Berdych'

I don't think anyone thought it to be offensive, but putting that title is sure to draw responses, most of them irrelevent to the awesome match we have at hand here.

As for it, Blake to win another 5 setter :p

Nothing FUNNY at the thread's title.

It is extremely rude to mention and indeed discern one based on their physical appearance.

I would suppose Tsonga, Obama, Blake, would rather be judged on their aptitude rather than their appearance, which is why such a title is EXTREMELY INSENTIVE.

NO SCOT PERSON WOULD LIKE TO BE DEEMED STUPID BECAUSE HE/SHE HAS A STRONG AND PRONOUNCED GLASWEEGIAN/SCOT ACCENT, through no fault of their own. In fact, the fact you have an accent usually infers you are not well educated or didnt attend private school, etc. MANY SCOTS HAVE TO CHANGE THEIR ACCENTS FOR JOB INTERVIEWS.

YOU CANT CHANGE YOUR SKIN TONE, WHICH IS WHY SUCH A THREAD IS SO INSENSITIVE, AND I HOPE IT GETS DELETED

PS: If you are a scot or a foreigner in the UK, you'll know what I'm talking about.

I don't recall the OP suggesting anything negative about mixed race people. You need to get a grip. I'm not sure who changed the thread title, but they shouldn't have complied with your childish request.

No he might not have said anything negative, but again, I wouldn't like to troll about in Thailand and be reminded that I am caucasian (usually wiv a negative inference as happened last time over there), or be judged because I am gay. Gee!

In light of Prince harry recent racist remarks, I think the thread title was ucalled for, as simple as that!

You know that people are so sensitive about race issues that mentioning race itself is a case for a sue. Obviously it's ridiculous, but hey, still better than apartheid.

The poster didn't mean any harm, however it is quite out of place statement. We don't say Cauasian vs Cauasian because it's indeed, out of place and not needed.

Almost everyone is biracial, even though your appearance may be cauasian,black(or whatever) I am 100% you prolly have a 90% percent chance of being mixed.

Thats what Martin Luther King alluded to that all mankind must be judge by the content of their character not by the colour of their skin.Obama transcends race,Nelson Mandela and Gandhi are and were beyond the race thing,its only misguided racists who want to divide black people.

Tsonga in 4. He is better than Blake in every single facet of the game so this match should be in his hands. Plan on seeing a ton of winner's and UE's in this one.

I don't know about the rest, but is Miller really considered a black person? Until I read your post, I didn't even know about his family background. He sure doesn't look like it at all.

He's been playing pretty well & so hope he can maintain his form and those volleys!

SO WOT IF HE'S GAY?

U say it in such an ostentatious way. I am gay, out, and its testimonious to the backwardness of sum peeps in society to assume every folk out there should be straight!

Beside, afro or not, Wenworth Miller isn't disguising any fro. Not only does he look gorgeous without it, but he's achieving WAY MUCH MORE THAN YOU trolling about in on a tennis forum (I got hold a degree in mathematics and statistics).

And oh, BIRDS LOVE HIM!

They are half black YES, are they AFRICAN in ANY WAY? Allow me to doubt so. THE THREAD SHUD BE SHUT DOWN, this is insulting to both blake and tsonga's ability, discerning them through their skin colour rather than sheer talent. Pathetic!

Political correctness has led black/mixed people in USA to be addressed as "African-Americans". It doesn't make much sense to me, but that's the accepted way. As for Tsonga, he's proud of his African roots and he wouldn't be offended by being partlly labelled African.

I, for one, think we take political correctness too far sometimes and tend to be over-sensitive about labels. I'm black or mixed race (I have Scottish roots) or whatever, but I don't worry about it.

You shudnt have to worry about it no.

But u shud have to worry when you are constantly judged based on ur skin colour. This is tennis, I'm not sure wot race has to do with it seriously.
