Serena Williams takes time out from what sounds like literally having her baby to respond to John McEnroe’s, ‘if she was on the men’s tour she’d probably be at 700’ comment.
I’ve never played anyone ranked “there” nor do I have time. Respect me and my privacy as I’m trying to have a baby. Good day sir

When you go to a wave pool in Tokyo…
Photograph by Michael Yamashita @yamashitaphoto – Beat the heat: Tokyo Summerland is a popular water park that’s home to the world’s most crowded wave pool. It creates a 1 meter wave for 5 minutes every hour on the hour. Hundreds of swimmers crowd into the pool in anticipation of waves, then jump out and wait for the next round of waves. #Akiruno #Summerland #wavepool #summer #pool #Tokyo #Japan @natgeocreative @natgeotravel @thephotosociety

A disappointing organisational faux pas for a pro bike race…
I like to keep things positive on here but I’m bummed. Much as I love the guys at @radrace, starting the women’s race just 2 minutes behind the guys was really uncool and unfair.. . The men’s field at Fixed 42 is made up of 600 people and when they line up at the start, they’re instructed ‘contenders at the front, medium riders behind and people who are just along for the ride at the back.’. . So what do you think happens when you start the women’s race two minutes later? We caught the slowest guys in the neutralised part before we even reached the autobahn!. . As we raced into town, it was was super dangerous with groups of guys everywhere who didn’t move over to let our race through.. . But the absolute worst was the finishing straight. There were guys EVERYWHERE spread across the entire width of the course, guys who weren’t even racing, just ‘along for the ride.’ Again, none moved aside. We weren’t able to have a proper sprint at all and got stuck behind them all.. . It was so incredibly frustrating and disappointing, we’ve travelled many miles to be here and didn’t even get to finish the race properly. It makes me feel that the women’s race was just an afterthought and unimportant.
