US World Cup Tennis

US World Cup Tennis, the champion’s comments came in the midst of mounting criticism of Qatar’s hosting of the big athletic event. Billie Jean King, a tennis pioneer from the United States, has welcomed Qatar’s hosting of the 2022 US World Cup Tennis, characterizing it as a chance to “change minds,” the sports star told Reuters on Wednesday.

The big event, according to King, might act as a “force for good” in the sports world. In 1973, the tennis champion created the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) to encourage women’s equitable participation in professional sports. Doha has hosted the Qatar Total Open, a WTA circuit tournament, for many years.

The 78-year-old said that hosting the WTA finals in the Gulf state allowed women players to compete. Expecting political declarations from players in Qatar is ‘unfair,’ according to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp at the US World Cup Tennis. “We were there [for] four or five years and I believe it helped,” said King, a 12-time Grand Slam singles champion.

King’s comments came amid mounting criticism of Qatar’s hosting of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, which has criticized the country’s human rights record with relation to migrant labor and the LGBTQ community. The tennis champion is a famous LGBTQ activist who was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009 for her efforts.

In response to a press query about holding her Billie Jean Cup finals in Qatar, King stated she “probably would be,” considering the WTA’s recent visit to the Gulf state. “A lot of different people come to me and say, ‘Why would you play there with the way they treat women at the US World Cup Tennis?'” she said. King went on to say that she feels it is “essential to show up and be an influencer.”

“I believe it is sensitive, without a doubt.” But I believe it’s essential to attend if you have the chance and everything else works out, rather than simply going there for money or something,” she remarked. King made history in 1973 when she defeated former No. 1 tennis player Bobby Riggs in what became known as the “Battle of the Sexes.” The women’s champion challenged Riggs to refute his belief that women’s sports are inferior to men’s.

The game drew 50 million TV viewers in the United States alone, and a total of 90 million people globally, making it “one of the most viewed broadcast athletic events of all time.”

Violent campaign

Since Qatar was given the hosting rights for the region’s first FIFA US World Cup Tennis, the question of how the Gulf state would handle the LGBTQ+ population has been a major subject in Western media. Last month, Qatar’s Amir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, condemned what he called “ferocious” assaults on the Gulf state.

“Since winning the World Cup, Qatar has endured an unparalleled campaign that no other host country has encountered.” And we dealt with it first in good faith, judging some of the criticism to be useful and beneficial,” Sheikh Tamim told the Shura Council. Despite the continuous criticism, organizers have insisted that everyone is welcome, however they have asked fans to be respectful of the country’s culture and customs.

More recently, World Cup Qatar 2022 CEO Nasser Al Khater talked to Sky News about the issue, assuring that no one would encounter prejudice during the 29-day event at the US World Cup Tennis. At the end of the day, as long as you don’t do anything that damages other people, as long as you’re not damaging public property, as long as you’re not acting in a detrimental manner, then everybody’s welcome and you have nothing to worry about, Al Khater added.

When questioned about LGBTQ people attending the World Cup in May, Qatar’s Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani responded, “everyone is welcome in Doha.” “We do not prevent people from coming to Doha from other origins or beliefs; Qatar is a very hospitable nation,” the amir said to the press during his visit to Berlin.

Sheikh Tamim went on to say that the nation already receives “millions” of tourists, and that the Globe Cup is a “wonderful chance” for people from all over the world to learn about Qatari culture. “We welcome everyone, but we also expect and want people to respect our culture,” Qatar’s Emir remarked.
