Wimbledon's a bit like Bucha - parks, nice houses, prosperous people. What Russians did to Bucha 🎥👇🏽It's what Russians will do to @Wimbledon, its brand, & given a chance, its wombles, village & villagers. Russia had lists of Bucha residents to kill - they killed them. 1/14
⚡️If Russia hadn't murdered Ukrainian athlete Dariia Kurdel while she was training for the Olympics, Dariia would have enjoyed seeing Russia lose the #Olympics sport of threatening genocide. No other country was competing. Threatening genocide breaches international law. 2/14
@Wimbledon's 2022 stance was correct: NO way of enabling Russian or Belarussian athletes to participate, without the Russian state using such participation as a means of promoting its "Z" brand. UN Commission has now established👇🏽Russia as liable for the Crime of Aggression. 3/14

It's a shame the #Wimbledon final is tainted by arseholery coz WHAT a match-up.

This and the @Lionesses is giving me just enough summer of sport to get me stressed in a fun way. Thank you, sport.
It's quite funny that Kyrgios is riled in the #Wimbledon final coz a hammered British woman is yelling Britishly from the crowd and while it's going on and he's grumbling away he serves two RIDICULOUS aces.
Djokovic having a massive poop to wind up Kyrgios. #Wimbledon

After winning the second set, Kyrgios saying he wants Tsitsipas defaulted for hitting a ball into the crowd and hitting someone.

Tsitsipas got a code violation warning.

Kyrgios calls for the supervisor, then wants more supervisors (lol).

"I want all of them!"
As replay shows, Tsitsipas did indeed backhand a ball into the crowd.

Couldn't tell at first look if it hit or injured anyone.

Tsitsipas has his own complaints about Kyrgios monopolizing towel spaces (lol).

"Which color is mine? The gentleman here has occupied half of them."

After two and a half years, I’ve finally tested positive for covid. May I be the x millionth person on here to say how horrid it is
Symptoms: day 1, Sunday, felt very tired and leg muscles ached (thought this was because I’d mown the lawn, lol) then upset stomach in evening. Day 2, extreme fatigue, muscle aches, headache, loss of appetite/nausea. Could barely move off sofa. However test was negative 🤷🏼‍♀️
Day 3, today, felt bit better, still low appetite, tested positive. Lack of appetite and headache are the worst today. Very tired. Bit of a cough. I had my booster shot in December so I guess that’s waned a bit. But thank goodness for vaccines. Also thank goodness for #Wimbledon

La guerra in #Ucraina sta smantellando tutto il sistema di Stato di dritto, o presunto tale, europeo e italiano, nel silenzio totale

1) Sdoganato il #nazismo: “eh, si #Azov ha le svastiche, ma solo il 2% dei consensi. E poi sono ben addestrati”

#Draghi #Russia #Biden
2) Sdoganato il razzismo verso specifiche nazionalità: #Wimbledon e, pare anche #Draghi, bannano tennisti russi solo perché sono russi.

Da oggi si potrà quindi fare lo stesso con xyz nazionalità, arbitrariamente
3) Sdoganate le calunnie/ingiurie e processi sommari:

In barba alle regole del processo giudiziario che, eventualmente, porta a condanne, ma al termine del processo, i ministri #EU fanno a gara ad emettere sentenze “criminale di guerra”, “animale”, “dittatore (membro #Nato)

Quindi a oggi:

1) Le “#Sanzioni" finanziarie non hanno avuto alcun effetto, contrariamente a quanto sperato da noi, ma in linea con quanto analizzato dal nostro team due mesi fa

#Russia #Ucraina #Putin #Draghi
2) Grazie alle scellerate minacce su gas e petrolio che abbiamo fatto senza attuare, la #Russia sta incassando sulle partite correnti più di quanto avesse sperato, grazie all'aumento dei prezzi
3) Il #Rublo è tornato a livelli pre-guerra grazie alle manovre, chapeau, di risposta della #BackOfRussia che ha raddoppiato i tassi di interesse (cosa che si può fare quando si batte moneta, non come da noi) e forzando la conversione in Rubli dell'80% dell'#export (che aumenta)

Pro tennis is mistakenly seen as a playground for the elite, but not all its players are awash in prize money.

The @ptpaplayers seeks to bridge the money gap between its biggest stars and lower-ranked players — and there's some Canadian muscle behind it.…
Being contractors — not team players — these athletes pay their own way for everything: airfares, hotel rooms (if they can afford them), massage therapists, tennis balls. They have no union that has their backs. No health or retirement plans, either.…
To bridge the disparity, the high-ranking Canadian @VasekPospisil and the world’s top men's player, @DjokerNole launched the Professional Tennis Players’ Association, calling for more equitable revenue-sharing between tennis organizers and players.…
