#ToiletBreak e Querelle #Tsitsipas

Facciamo chiarezza con un bel thread

Si è parlato molto delle ‘presunte’ scorrettezze di Stefano Tsitsipas (e di altri tennisti) che utilizzerebbero in modo antisportivo il toilet break.

Partiamo dalle regole attuali

#Tennis #UsOpen Stefanos Tsitsipas e Daniil Medvedev - Foto Ray Giubilo
Il #ToiletBreak, in un match #Slam, è consentito due volte a partita.

È obbligatorio, una volta presa la via degli spogliatoi (con un giudice di linea al seguito), usufruire del bagno.

Non si può chiedere Toilet Break solamente per cambiarsi Foto Ray Giubilo
A #Sinner, che non conosceva la regola, durante il match con #Karatsev a #Lione è stato recentemente comminato un #Warning per essersi solamente cambiato senza aver usufruito del bagno.

Il giudice di linea ha avvertito l'arbitro ed è arrivata l'ammonizione Jannik Sinner - Foto Ray Giubilo

I'm as big a hater as the next hater, but even I want @DjokerNole to win @usopen #tennis championship & complete the calendar grand slam.
#1, no man has accomplished this for more than 5 decades. Rooting against Novak at this point is like rooting against the next interplanetary rover just because you don't like the nation which launched it. This is an amazing, inspirational feat. Let's hope Djokovic can do it.
#2, yes, Novak isn't as polished & smooth as Federer & Nadal. But 99% of humanity aren't as smooth as those two. I love @RafaelNadal's honesty, openness & humility. I love @rogerfederer's grace on the court & ease navigating the press & corporate sponsorships & everyday life.

Before Venus & Serena Williams, there was Margaret and Matilda Peters. They were nicknamed “Pete” and “Repeat” for their doubles playing skills and last name. The Peters sisters attended Tuskegee Institute in 1937.
While they were in college, segregation laws did not allow African Americans to compete against whites, so the Peters sisters played in the American Tennis Association (ATA), which was created specifically to give African-Americans a forum to play tennis competitively.
After graduating from Tuskegee in 1941 they b oth continued to play tennis in the ATA. They won 14 doubles tennis titles between 1938 and 1953. Despite their great skill, the sisters were never permitted to compete against the great white doubles players of the time.

Sumit Nagal is playing Daniil Medvedev of Russia.. #Tennis.... I dont know why these players are being sent to be slaughtered... Nagal is ranked 144... Medvedev is No.2... What is the point? Just show your face & mark attendance?... #TokyoOlympics
Even in regular tennis tournaments of full strength (128)... Sumit Nagal would not be in the main rounds unless he goes through a qualifier...
Spare me such idiotic replies... Keep quiet if you dont have brains... Nagal is a Pro tennis player... Olympics is once in 4 years.. ATP is round the year... So dont blabber about "Exposure"... #MoronicReplies..

@naomiosaka dedicated her life to tennis from a young age and, upon reaching a long imagined first grand slam, she was booed in front of a crowd of many thousands. A goal of recognition lost, together with a very public rejection/disapproval
1/many
She told of #depression that followed this loss, and of intense #socialanxiety, the latter focused around press appearances and being publicly questionned: an entirely understandable experience. I have met many other top athletes who share this perception of 'doing media'
2/many
Social anxiety is a recognised disorder that causes persistent, intense fear or anxiety about specific social situations: distressing thoughts about being judged, embarrassed or humiliated.

I caught the last set & a half of Marat Safin's victory over Roger Federer in 2005 Australian Open semifinal on @TennisChannel. Unbelievable #tennis & drama. Full match here
My impression is that nobody has lost more Grand Slam matches having had match points than Federer. Is that true?
In fact, Federer has a long list of tough losses in Grand Slam matches: this one to Safin, the Australian Open final to Nadal, Nadal's victory in the dark at the Wimbledon final, Novak twice at US Open down match points, 2 5-set Wimbledon finals losses to Novak, US Open loss

After the most unpredictable year of all, get set for another one. Here, in handy A-Z form, are a few pointers and things to keep an eye on across the global sports industry in 2021. #sportsbiz.
A - Action: With global movements gaining real momentum, this has to be the year for more tangible organisational action - staff training, recruitment practices, coaching, mentoring schemes and leadership education - across the industry to make sport a more inclusive place.
B - Bundesliga and the big 5: Across European football, getting fans back into stadiums remains the top priority, but there are challenges everywhere as clubs flex their muscles, the @Bundesliga_EN searches for its new CEO and Ligue 1 tries to sort out its TV and financial mess.

The @rolandgarros #FrenchOpen2020 #tennis on the men's side is as open as it has been in many years. So many variables have changed. Will this be the year that the King of Clay, @RafaelNadal, is dethroned?
The changes:
1) Change in season from late May to late September. Average temperatures for May & Sep are comparable, but this is the first time that the weather should become colder as the tournament progresses (final is Oct 4) rather than warmer. Cooler temps = less ball bounce
2) Playing at night
Many courts now have artificial lighting. Will Rafa be scheduled for high profile night matches when temperatures will be cooler? Imagine him playing @StefTsitsipas or @ThiemDomi where his ball isn't jumping up on them.

Not since Pancho Gonzales did it in 1949 has a man come back from 2 sets down to win Grand Slam #tennis title, big congrats to @ThiemDomi ! Thiem completes biggest U.S. Open final comeback in 71 years, defeats Zverev in epic 5-set affair | CBC Sports cbc.ca/sports/tennis/…
Google search interpreted the search to mean in the history of US Open & US Championships, as @sonodoc99 correctly points out that Lendl/McEnroe 1984 French Open final Ivan came back 2 sets down & a break of serve 2-4—so first come in 36 yrs.& thx Art!

How many career losses does @DjokerNole have to the entire field at @usopen? Only Marco Cecchinato, @David__Goffin, @StefTsitsipas, @AlexZverev, @benoitpaire, @DaniilMedwed, Roberto Bautista Agut, @SamQuerrey, @andy_murray, @cilic_marin, @ThiemDomi have ever beaten him.
Many of those aforementioned players have awful career records against him (especially in best of 5), and many are not in form. If Novak is healthy and motivated, he has to be considered the big favorite. #tennis
If Zverev has a great serving day, which he does every once in a while, he can defeat him. Both Daniil and Dominic can beat him, but they got to get to the finals healthy and rested & then play great. #USOpen

Good luck to my good friend @lukebjensen & @nyempiretennis to take the King Trophy, doesn’t hurt to have #tennis HOF Kim Clijsters pictured here & out of retirement and crushing the ball!
How about Coach Jensens sub of Jack Sock who lit up that mixed doubles final w/ @CoCoVandey who held serve like a true champ at the end!
The Jensen’s now have a second WTT champion coach!!! Congrats buddy!! @CoCoVandey was lights out with everything on line she ripped a winner return of serve—no win by 2 here—the entire came down to 1 point. ImageImageImageImage

A few thoughts on the Bjorn Borg victory over John McEnroe in the 1980 @wimbledon men's #tennis final #WimbledonRecreated

Just like the @DetroitPistons had to lose playoff series to @celtics before winning @NBA finals & @chicagobulls had to lose to the Pistons before defeating
them & becoming the champions & @stanwawrinka had to lose some epic 5-setters in Grand Slams before breaking through to defeat @DjokerNole & @RafaelNadal & @rogerfederer en route to his Grand Slam victories, McEnroe took a rough beat, especially when he dropped the 2nd set
despite all of those opportunities. His grit in the 4th & 5th sets proved to everyone, most especially himself, that he should hold the #Wimbledon trophy, and indeed he did, several times.

This should encourage @ThiemDomi, who has come close to winning a grand slam. IMO, he's

The years 2015-2020 have revealed an insidious disregard for the #female category by #OlympicGames @olympics executives and their corporate sponsors.
Male (XY) 🧬athletes now allowed into XX events.
Time to take stock re #women’s #sports.
Where did we begin?
Where are we going?
Our story begins in the Egyptian Middle Kingdom (2000 B.C.)
Forms of women’s competition were somewhat different than we experience in 2020 A.D.
Contests revolved around two key aspects of #Egyptian life:
1. Food acquisition- #hunting & #fishing
2. Entertaining - #acrobatics
True #sports for women really began in Ancient Greece during the Classical period (400 B.C.). Unmarried girls had their own private competitions - also at Olympia every 4years.
These were separate from the men’s games.
The festivals were held in honour of Hera, wife of Zeus.
