NEWS AND COMMENTARY ON WOMEN'S PROFESSIONAL TENNIS
This is fishy... is this commission linked to Austria's tennis federation? Paszek's had problems with them forever, and she was threatening to defect to Brazil after the Olympics, no? Now Austria wants to ban her for an obviously unintentional violation (which clearly didn't help her all that much). Bad taste in my mouth.
On the one hand, it was Paszek's responsibility to know the rules. On the other hand, the ITF commission has not exactly set a standard of fairness and consistency for others to follow. How Austria's committee defines "temporary" will be the key, I think.
