This incident—though excruciating for us to endure—exemplified how thousands of women in every area of the workforce are treated every day. We are not allowed to have emotions, we are not allowed to be passionate. We are told to sit down and be quiet, which frankly is just not something I’m okay with. It’s shameful […]

2008. That should have been it for Justin Gimelstob, forever. After all, the man has amassed zero singles ATP titles: That’s zero Grand Slams, zero Masters 1000, zero 250 events.
