People like this are everywhere online. I'm sure some of these idjuts are kids or young people who don't know her history and see a woman who is not "athletically slim" at this point in her life revel in being able to hurl insults and think it's funny. And why shouldn't they? JMac's comments about an Asian American player a few days ago are in the same vein. My mother always said "empty barrels make the most noise", an expression I appreciate more and more as I grow older.
He did? Can't say I'm surprised or mad I missed it. Good lord, that man never learns. I've wondered plenty of times in the last few years what he has to do to get bounced because I'd have fired him a long time ago and at least 5 times since then.

I was wondering when she would speak up again on this issue. I read an article last week (or the week before) about how this issue is perceived in lesbian culture. I'll see if I can find the article.

I found the article but I'll post it in "Random, Random".

As Jazz said that family needs the services of a real PR agency but it doesn't seem that they want one.

We don't know. Maybe this makes them/him more popular in Serbia.
You read it here first: he will be president of Serbia one of these days. With the support of a lot of people from the right.

Yes, many of us have said before he would be.

And he's golden in Serbia, and if that was his only concern, than he'd have no worries with this unlikely to put a dent in his popularity there. But he's forever wanted to get the adoration bestowed on Federer and Nadal around the world, not just in Serbia. He was damn near happy despite losing that Calendar Grand Slam just beaming from the crowds cheering him on for that one day the way he's always wanted.

"These incidents" are brought up typically because they do involve a player, Vika. (hand on hip, thumb in front) Would I be asking Azarenka about Djokovic's father? Probably not. I would certainly be asking Djokovic, and maybe a Russian player because those fans are promoting Russia and Russian players I would presume.
