Review

Commentators are quick to dismiss these two brilliant players as athletic or powerful. They are said to be without finesse, unfeminine, manufactured, not natural tennis players. So obvious that this is mostly barely concealed racism and sexism. They are denigrated because they are articulate black women winning at a white game. That is takes great skill to hit the tennis ball very hard is ignored, easier to explain their victories, in the special code they use, by the fact that they are athletic and powerful. Translation: brutal negroes are just naturally stronger so their dominance doesn't count.
