    An And yet you write "hate" in the majority of your posts. This I do know.....

    Navratilova had a better career than Court

    She had many, but Virginia Wade was a regular partner. I think Ken Fletcher was her most consistent mixed doubles partner, but I'd have to check.

    I'm sure. But my idea of decent to yours is significant. You agree with Margaret Court, l dont.

    Ah Kerber. Never fails to disappoint. Except beating Williams at Wimbledon. She gets a free pass. Thanks for organising @Boozyuzi

    Again, it's simple. You're either decent. Or you're not.

    @thrust thrust it appears our posts have been deleted. I suspect for the subject you raised. But to answer you, l truly believe it's a personal choice, and certainly not for me to judge. Who knows the circumstances that leads to such a decision? And some are horrific. And, again, l don't judge...

    For me it's simple. You're a decent, accepting human being. Or you're not.

    BJK IS THE GANG! I must admit she's irritated me of late: her knee jerk reaction to defend Serena Williams behaviour at the USO, although she gave a more balanced view a few days later. That said, she is worthy of most honours meted out.

    True. And part of his legacy. As it is Margaret Court. Two wrongs don't make a right.

    Navratilova had a better career than Court

    The larger the audience, the bigger the reaction. If I held similar views to Margaret Court it might alienate my own circle but it's not going to make headlines. Margaret Court is not an idiot and knows her views will reach a global audience. She stands by her views. Fortunately, others call her...

    Navratilova had a better career than Court

    I know all about Tilden, but l have a great interest in the history of tennis- and it's often mentioned. Hewitt also - although I admit l thought he'd been removed from the IHOF? In fact I'm almost certain he was. I'll check. The difference between Tilden and Court is that the latter lives in...

    I don't really know enough about him aside from being a chess player. Also, tennis reaches a global audience. I honestly couldn't name another chess player aside from two cousins who played for England juniors!

    Navratilova had a better career than Court

    "She is not just a bigot and homophobe." I agree she's not just a bigot and homophobe. However, it is part of her and views she wishes to air. And views that are given headlines precisely because of her tennis legacy. These views don't diminish her tennis accomplishments, but they do impact on...

    I've a friend who knows both really well (escorted Navratilova to the Evert/Lloyd wedding). He likes them both very much and sees them regularly. He said Evert is more-guarded and Navratilova much cheerier and open. BUT, if he needed a real friend at a difficult time, Evert is far more reliable...

    Was Capriati both an overachiever and underachiever

    I get the impression that her 'Second' career was more on her own terms. She herself has said that the WTA failed her and writes on this subject with a palpable bitterness. Adding in, as mentioned above, "Daddy" issues. Another tennis prodigy with parental problems - Chris Evert is one of the...

    Rank the 3-5 slam winners

    I've found it too difficult to rank top 10 as I keep changing my mind, so I've broken down to each winning 5, 4 or 3. 5 Majors: Hingis 4 Majors: Mandlikova 3 Majors: Ann Jones & Virginia Wade.

    Mandlikova is a better player than Goolagong and Henin

    I wonder if the answers would vary if asked who gave more pleasure to watch, Goolagong-Cawley, Mandlikova or Henin (regardless of career)? I saw Goolagong-Cawley, as a schoolboy, at the end of her career, Mandlikova a few times and Henin many times. My answer is easy: Goolagong-Cawley. A side...
