This is good to hear. Although does not make up for Peer's denied access.
I don't get it then. Is this supposed to serve as a concession? Them letting Ram play nulifies all the reasons that we thought they had for not letting Peer play. If it was political, if it was "for security reasons", it's all moot now.
Dubai comes out of this looking very pathetic.
Yeah, it makes no sense.
Maybe because Ram was born in Uruguay and the fact that Peer is a little more involved with the military?
Either way it still makes no sense.
It makes perfect sense. Dubai figured out in time that if they blocked both Israeli players that they were going to lose both tournaments. So they let the man play, since in Islam women are only servants anyway.
so why are the other women allowed to play? doesn't make sense
I agree--makes no sense at all. There is no pacification in this at all. Does not make up for Peer's denial. I hope that both the WTA and ATP dump Dubai next year.
Please don't make assumptions about a religion that you have little to no knowledge about.
Islam actually cherishes equality between the genders and races. It is not Islams fault that idiots around the world confuse their culture with their religion. They are not the same.
Andy getting a visa is good, but it's too little too late I think. Peer's denied access should not be forgotten.
How did you end up with that opinion?. As far as i know no religion says that. There are crazy people all over who can twist the religious sayings to anything they want it to be.
He probably has dual citizenship since his mom is from Uruguay and he was born there. Anyone know who his doubles partner will be? Erlich (born his Argentina I think)?
He said he hasn't renewed or traveled on his Uruguay passport in years. He is entering as an Israeli citizen. Erlich had elbow surgery and hasn't played since last year. Not sure who Andy is playing with next week, he's playing with Julian Knowle this week in Marseille.
Because I actually spent a few years over there and have seen it with my own eyes.
so because you spent a couple years in a place where you witnessed the mistreatment of women, you assume the entire religion is like that?
