The moving of the Dubai refusing visa for Israeli player

I strongly disagree with the decision to move that thread to non-tennis. Although this time is a WTA player refused entrance, the discussion is about the refusal on a whole and also has impact on ATP tour.

I suggest the thread to be merged with the one mentioned in cobalt60's post in the thread.

other thread should be merged with this one.

I agree, the thread is definitely ATP related, it's not "non-tennis".

Put it back to GM, as there are Israeli male players as well.

In my opinion the main topic of the threads is ISRAELI players rejected by UAE. That's why the threads should be merged into one and moved back into GM.

I agree. This is going to come up again for the men in a week when Andy Ram cant get it (or is it Ehrlich, which one is injured?). Might as well combine them, perhaps edit the title a bit to include the new info and date, and leave it in GM. Please.

No idea why it was moved. Probably because some of the GM mafia think it's cool to mock the WTA.

This is scoobs answered in the moved thread but I think it's better discussed here than in that thread.

I think this issue is fine to discuss in GM - in general terms - but this thread is pretty much about a WTA player's specific case and so doesn't belong in GM. If people want to discuss this in terms of how it impacts the men in GM, fair enough as far as I'm concerned.

As I have suggested in my petition there, you can merge it with an exisiting thread in GM. Although WTA players are mentioned in this thread, basically, most is about the refusal of Israeli players and what actions should players/WTA/ATP take. Just move the thread because of the title or this time the incident happens to a WTA player without really look into the spirit of the thread is not fair. May be MTF is like ATP or the top 3, 10 or 20 players in either tours that as long as it didn't involve someone famous, it did not occur.

I don't see a thread in GM to merge it with.

Regardless, I have asked the admins to review it and make a decision.

Well first of all I can merge across threads in NT and GM - needs an Admin to do that.

Secondly, the one in NT is still largely about Shahar Peer and would need to be cleared up before returning to GM so I will see what the admins want to do.

Still the general topic is about Israeli players rejected to UAE, and sorry that God created 2 genders when he created the world, but the same problem the women have this week will the men have next week. :angel:

It has been moved back to GM and merged with the existing thread, on condition that it discusses the issue from an ATP standpoint and doesn't stray into lengthy discussions on WTA or middle-eastern politics.

Thank you Scoobs; agree with the constraints :hatoff:

Agree with the constraints and tried to steer it back in that direction - that these events should not exist in the first place. :)
