Richard krajicek dating
"I think that those comments probably aren't necessary," Williams said. "Unless you really know these people, talk to these people, you never know what people go through.
"I just think we've come farther than to be referred to - you know, I don't cuss. For anyone to say that about her is kind of - you know, what can I say? It's not good to say those things about people." Unfortunately, Serena did not threaten to quit the team in Washington if Gimelstob were not removed.
He would be ordered to resign his position on the board of directors of the Association of Tennis Professionals, to stop commentating on Tennis Channel - where he ironically has hosted a segment called "Open Access." He would also be dropped from the roster of the Washington Kastles of the WTT. Gimelstob's appointment to the ATP board - a spot he has coveted for more than a year - was announced on the very day of his radio show comments.
Disrespect for the women's tour has been all too common among the men in recent years, dating back to Richard Krajicek's comments calling players "fat pigs." But Gimelstob carried this an extra step, defining the women in sexual terms and promising to leave Kournikova in tears after their match.
They have been living peacefully for these whole years, let's hope that they stay happy throughout the rest of their lives.
Richard Krajicek (Holland) The only man to beat Pete Sampras at Wimbledon between 19, Krajicek blitzed his way to the title in 1996 with a devastating serve-volley game.
On one of those radio talk shows where people always get into trouble - The Junkies, on WJFK in Washington - Gimelstob called Kournikova "a bitch" and "a douche." He questioned the veracity of the back problems that caused Kournikova's retirement and seemed to threaten her with physical harm when the two meet in a scheduled doubles match next month in World Team Tennis.
Gimelstob also called Nicole Vaidisova, one of the top players on tour, "a well-developed young lady," and declared that "female tennis players lack the social skills, they don't go to high school, they don't go to parties." If he were involved with another sport, surely Gimelstob would now be asked to go away for some time, suspended indefinitely.'"So when somebody is ambitious and he's got the huge game - I don't know if unlucky is the right word, but last year he could and should have made the semi-finals - he has the tools of course to beat anybody and to hit anybody off the court like he did even on clay last year with Novak at the French Open.
