There are lots of athletes who like the attention. Let them do the interviews. Most people just want to watch the match.These F'n guys = the people in charge of the French Open. Again.
She was willing to pay the fines, to avoid the media out of concern for her own mental health, but evidently that wasn't good enough. I'm guessing since she's the most well paid athlete there, so they threatened her with expulsion, since the monetary fee wasn't going to make her change her mind.
Then the Open talks about the mental well being of players.
So they want the best players available to draw for the open, one of them will still show just doesn't want to do the press, willingly accepts the fines she knows is coming, so they threaten her not being allowed to other events, so she withdraws.
How is that a win any regard?
For F sake, it's not like she wore a cat suit.
I think her decision to say “F you guys” and go home caught them flat-footed. Now, who is going to watch with the best player not there? Not me.
