Gambling has traditionally been considered a “vice,” along with prostitution, illegal drugs, and pornography. In law enforcement, the term “vice” is often considered an inherently immoral activity, often accompanied by depraved, harmful behavior (John Stemberger).
Asmodeus is the name of the demon behind betting. He is the prince of demons in hell. Asmodeus represents lusts. (Terrezo2002 on Nairaland). He incites gambling, and is the overseer of all the gambling houses in the court of Hell.

Tomasz Wiktorowski, coach of Iga Swiatek @iga_swiatek after match with Coco Gauff:

"It's good that this hall was filled with more fans. This is a good sign for the organizers before the next matches. It's also nice for the players to be appreciated." Image
Match with Coco:

"It would seem that this match doesn’t have a importance but I think otherwise. It was important and although the result looks very smooth, it was not, especially in first set. In second Iga had control. First set was close and Iga did not avoid a few mistakes"
Semifinal with Sabalenka:

"We always give the opponent the opportunity to change something compared to previous matches. We will prepare ourselves for what we know. We also do not want to do too many analysis. It must be a simple message for Iga, which is 80 percent ready."

Iga @iga_swiatek for polish media after win with Garcia:

„I felt pressure. Caro is an opponent who likes to put pressure. I thought that I actually only need to improve the quality of first serve. I concentrated on that. When it came to a longer game I would have more control”
WTA Finals in Poland:

„In terms of sports, it would be demanding for me. I would have to put four times as much energy into concentration to focus on what is happening on the court. However, I am absolutely in favor of it. I've always wanted to promote tennis in Poland”
Iga said that she spends the breaks between matches in Fort Worth quite calmly. She watched 3 parts of „The Princess Switch” on Netflix. "It made me feel a bit calmer and could not think about tennis”

#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
