Former coach of Serena Williams, Rennea Stubbs has expressed a lot of anger towards the WTA following the Madrid Open fiasco when players were denied a right to speak to the crowd.
Recently at the Madrid Open, we saw organisers deny the players from the women's doubles final a right to address the crowd which left all of them stunned. It was the only final that was denied a chance to speak and players involved like Azarenka, Pegula, Gauff all spoke out against it on social media afterwards.
Azarenka is actually part of the WTA council so Renane Stubbs was very furious to see no response from the WTA whatsoever. She blasted the organisation for that:
"Tick tock. What’s the day. How many days has this happened since and guess who hasn’t made a public statement yet. The WTA. Now I know and I’ve heard form sources that they’re working behind the scenes on releasing a statement."
She added:
"Guys it’s a simple f**king statement. You say we are very unhappy with the way our ladies doubles finalists and champions were treated. We are in discussions of how we’re going to handle this going forward but we want to put it out there right now that we are not happy with the way that was handled. That’s it."
