Players “Retiring” is Bad for Tennis

We’ve seen some funny business going on at the grassy grounds of Wimbledon. Over the first few days of the tournament we’ve seen players, retiring from matches, after going down a few games to quality players such as Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer etc.

 

Let me start off with, saying that if a player is truly injured then they by all means should be allowed to conclude a match over health concerns, nonetheless that doesn’t seem to be the case. Lower seeded players are basically jumping ship, because they can’t seem to handle being defeated. This is a sad event at hand. It’s bad for the players who go to these tournaments to play and compete, yet must stop a match early on, because his opponent doesn’t have the discipline to compete. It’s also sad and probably worst on the fans who spend a bunch of money to go see these guys play.

 

Basically the players are taken advantage of the system, so if the heads of tennis truly care about their fans and players they’ll change the rules to fit our needs. I can’t really blame someone for only playing a couple sets then claiming they’re hurt when they’ll still end up, making over 435,000 bucks just by surrendering. Don’t hate the player, hate the game.

Ryan Lochte Fabricated Story is a Disgrace to the Games

Most out there have probably heard about this fabricated story started by USA Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte. Last week, Ryan Lochte and four of his fellow USA  men’s swim team members were said to be gunned down by a Brazilian police officer. As the other four layed down as they were ordered  too Ryan Lochte showed zero signs of fear, saying” whatever” This week the story has been clearly seen as a boy cries wolf type of lie and boy is Ryan Lochte feeling the heat of it. Social media tweets and post are all about Ryan Lochte right now.

We may never know what actually went on, but here are the latest facts of today that show that Ryan Lochte was straight up lying by video evidence. Lochte and his boys got drunk and got into trouble by urinating on public property, breaking doors down and even the toilets in the public restrooms. To make matters worse, they insulted and harassed a security guard  who was just doing his job protecting the citizens enjoying their time in Rio for the Olypmics. Instead of feeling any guilt, Ryan Lochte fabricated a story to make himself look innocent when clearly him and his teammates were in the wrong.  Lochte actually left Brazil early, leaving his teammates to keep the lie going which clearly they did not agree with, so they called him out. At least they have some moral ground.

This is just a sad story.   This story will have a daunting affect on how fans perceive him, his teammates, and it takes away from the excitement of the Olympic games. Brazil has got a lot of criticism   before the games began for multiple reasons.

For the most part, Brazil had done a great job of, keeping peace among the fans and athletes. It’s kind of funny how the man from the first world country caused the damage. My heart goes out to the security guard whose night was ruined by these fools. He was doing his job and was treated wrongly. Ryan Lochte should apologize to this person and use his own money to fix what he and his buddies destroyed. Shame on you Ryan Lochte for trying to deceive all of us when we’ve been cheering U on the entire time.  U sir are not an Olympian, so enjoy being in Michael Phelps shadow where you and your pals belong.
