The UAE denied an Israeli tennis competitor, Shahar Peer, access to their country to play in Sony Ericsson World Tennis Association Tour. This is contrary to WTA rules, and a quick inspection of the WTA site reveals no mention of poor Shahar (other than her player page — she seems pretty damned good!). See CNN for more details. This is the same Israeli who competed in Qatar in 2008.

Muffti finds tennis SUPER boring, but he feels pretty bad for Shahar. So do a good number of current and former tennis pros from France, Russia and elsewhere. If you want to contact the WTA and tell them how you feel, their contact page is here. Tell them the Muffti sent ya.
