Brydan Klein, 19, just got suspended 6 months for racist talk when playing against a south-african player.
some tennis players get less after takings drugs...
It's normal he's being punished, but ATP is sending a strange message...
where are the facts?
"The word kaffir, sometimes spelt kaffer or kafir, is an offensive term for a black person, most common in South Africa and other African countries. Generally considered a racial or ethnic slur in modern usage, it was previously a neutral term for black southern African people."
was being in a bar with my idiot mate and there was a black South African girl in there. He tried chatting her up by saying "are you a kaffir?" not realising that this was racist. I jumped in to smooth it over and she took it in very good grace.
He did not get laid.
It's all his own fault
but to get court doing it in public is unforgiveaballs.
I guess it makes a difference whether it's the first ban he's served, or whether it's his second serve.
He Set himself up for this with some stupid comments. He's opened his mouth and put his foot in it. Foot fault
What an amazing place name.
button on DiS !
The umpire must have had a Hawkeye to spot it.
And his gran slammed him.
He claymed that he hadn't said anything to the other player but a ballboy hard him say it and grassed on him.
a volley of criticism
