"When most players at the Dubai Championships finish their matches, they mingle in the clubhouse eating and chatting. For Shahar Peer, it's back to a guarded compound where she watches movies with her father Dov.
But it could be worse for Peer."
I'm sorry, but this piece of "reporting" is just a sorry piece of steaming shit. It could be worse? Shahar Peer has security detail, has to be kept separate from her colleagues and friends, has to give press conferences in a bunker, and see dudes with machine guns surrounding her. Basically, Shahar Peer has to attempt to play one of the biggest tournaments of the year under constant reminder that people in her host country might kind of like to kill her.
But don't worry, you guys. She's "comfy".
Yo, WTA: If a tournament can't ensure the safety of a player without completely segregating her and discouraging her from actually travelling around the country that she's in, you should probably NOT HAVE A TOURNAMENT THERE. Seriously, how ridiculous is it to see Ana bounding around an amusing park, and fucking Vera Dushevina at the Sook, but Shahar's basically under house arrest. I know I go through this every fucking year when Dubai rolls around but seriously, WTA, WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU THINKING???
Yank the tournament. Get the money elsewhere or don't get the money at all. It's not worth it. This is just pathetic.
