USTA is having a terrible, horrible, very bad day

Fed Cup: USA v Belgium
I almost feel badly for the USTA. Yes I know that that sounds unbelievable given my own relatively frequent tirades against their incompetence. But the last thing I would have wanted the organization that represents tennis to face was an allegation of racism. That is an ugly accusation. It’s the kind of accusation that even when you win, as Zina Garrison apparently has, everyone loses, including Garrison herself.

An important component of Garrison’s case that has been ignored by most news reports, is her allegation that a top USTA official made racist comments about the William sisters, complaining to Ms. Garrison that "you people" never return calls. Ouch. Someone should have lost her job the next day.

Go here for the rest of this article and here for my blog. And thanks for reading.

What is racist about it?. It would be nice if we all can use the words like 'racism' responsibly, not lkie some swear word.
