    But he didn't.....he was rude and vulger to a noisy fan, got fined, made a nice sarcastic apology. Who cares, move on. If your panties are that far out of shape send a letter to Lacoste and Wilson and tell them you will never buy their products as long as they endorse him and that you will push others to do the same.
    If it was my wife who had been insulted like that she would have replied to him point blank that he could go F*** himself right then and there. So he's a jerk big deal - tennis full of them.

    Sorry, but "Americans" refer to people from America, not the United States. I'm an American too, you know. I just was not born in the USA.

    I love this. My wife would've done the same. Maybe because she's a Texan, too.

    hmmm...where is the hue and cry for llodra to be banned from IW or suspended?

    what he did is far worse than what Serena did at the USO this year.

    He was apparently abusive to ballboys and linespeople as well.

    Just saying.....

    I know you were kidding, and weren't meaning to refer to a specific color (which is different from race, anyway). I was kidding, too :)

    It really isn't. Plus, "ferocity" of the reaction?, would you mind pointing out just where have you seen that?.

    The sum he was fined is not at all reasonable. It's more of a joke.

    And what he did is OK because lots of other people are racist and/or xenophobic too?. Really?.

    It's tackling down this kinds of minor manifestations of the problem what makes it clear that the behaviour is not acceptable and it helps to stop the more serious examples of it.

    1. Ferocity is the right word given the minor nature of the offence.

    2. The sum was around 20% of his earnings which is reasonable.

    3. You've completely missed the misogynistic nature of his remarks as has everyone who has commented.

    4. I did not say what he said is ok. I said there were more serious issues of racism in the world to tackle.

    5. I don't believe in zero tolerance policing as it is racist in practice.

    6. It's best to keep politics and sport separate, which is not an opinion people talking endlessly about the Llodra outrage share.

    The remarks that the Chinese agency quotes Llodra as saying have been partially denied by him.

    His words were, according to him, as follows:

    Je suis allé présenter mes excuses aux Chinois par l'intermédiaire de ce journaliste, mais on s'est mal compris tous les deux. Je ne lui ai pas dit ce qu'il a rapporté. Je lui ai dit: "Qu'est ce qu'il faut que je fasse pour vous prouver que je ne suis pas raciste? Il faut que je fasse l'amour à une Chinoise?" Ce n'était pas péjoratif, c'était une forme de respect."

    His obviously annoyed response to a question as to whether or not he was a racist was:

    What do I have to do to prove to you I am not a racist?

    Make love to a Chinese woman!

    This was what the Chinese agency has him saying:

    "I love Chinese — I can totally make love with a Chinese girl."

    On the face of it, Llodra's account sounds more plausible. The Llodra incident demonstrates the perils of kangaroo courts based on partial and inaccurate reporting.

    Some of these French people seem to be extremely angry and eager to blame everything and anything on someone.

    You're the one who has demonstrated no idea of French.

    I'm open to an alternative understanding of what he claims to have said.

    Until you produce one you're not worth the time of day.

    Who cares he did not say anything that bad, you ever notice it is only racism when a white guy says something like this.

    There's another translation in the thread on Llodra's apology so you best consult it in order to write in an informed manner.

    It was racism. Not exactly a minor thing. Oh, and sexism too. But no big deal, who cares, right?.

    And I answered to that already. Look above.

    How?.

    "Politics". Nice PC language. I guess all racism and sexism should just be tolerated then, since we shouldn't mix sports and politics...

    So you do not understand french (well, it s ok), but your main problem is that you pretend to not understand ENGLISH !!!
    You can put all the big words in your bag now. people like you have no shame.

    Geez

    What really gets me is how self-centered someone and others like him can be. I would consider it a blessing to be able to enjoy the pro life and make cash while having all that fun. Let him struggle to find a real job and he'll see real fast what a gift he has and is crapping all of it and everyone in his way.

    I'm not sure what the circumstances were but any fan acting like a jack ass, no matter what color they are deserve verbal abuse.
