NEWS AND COMMENTARY ON WOMEN'S PROFESSIONAL TENNIS
apologies for being off topic, Diane, but just to say I've been watching the men in Monte Carlo this week, due to the lack of women's tennis on, and on three separate occasions(and probably more which I didn'see) I saw top players spitting......absolutely disgusting thing to do, and if the umpire warned/docked a point, I'm sure it would put a swift end to it......goes on all the time in football(soccer) here, and I find it revolting and extremely unhygienic.....have you ever seen any tennis players do this? It's the first I've noticed it. Again, apologies for the off topic post - I'm letting off steam on one of my personal bugs... :(
I abhor public spitting, too, but in the U.S., it's considered an acceptable male behavior. Or at least it seems to be. So I guess it is in Europe, too. But can you imagine the uproar if one of the women did it?
