    That was just horrible.   I dont know what the comments were but probably dont want to know but then there was nothing wrong with picture, it showed a damn fine elite athlete.  Its all over the Herald Sun this morning.   Cant understand why they removed photo when comments can get deleted quick as lightning.

    By removing the whole thing (photo AND comments), what they were basically saying was they were powerless to stop the comments and more were going to come. In other words “we give up – it’s too hard – the trolls have won”.

    They were able to remove Ferns comments from there site WC so nothing is unstoppable.   Except taking the time to allow one person to monitor there site.

    Fantastic article about Erin Hoare who’s now playing with Geelong in the AFLW.

    Page 12 of the hardcopy Age, along with this article where she comments on the use of the term ‘women’s sport’ and the events surrounding the Tayla Harris photo.

    Well done Ash Barty, winner of the WTA Maimi.  If only the male players from Australia could act like Ash.

    Ash Barty reminds me of Martina Hingis, isn’t going to over power anyone, although does have a good serve.  But the way she thinks around the court, the wonderful backhand slice, old school style, but it’s great to watch.

    So much depth in Women’s Tennis, unlike Men’s which has none.

    Wasn’t it free entry.  But still well done, I watched a few games some of them were very average.

    Congrats to Ash love her style and attitude on and off the court, she does Australia proud but doesn’t rate a mention in mainstream media despite being our best player atm. Unfortunately it’s all about how Kygrios has changed his tune(the amount of articles over the years that have talked about a supposed mindset change is ridiculous and I’m yet to see it myself)
