Tex Hollywood - March 8, 2023

Marta Kostyuk is a hot Ukrainian tennis babe, currently playing at the Indian Wells Masters in California but who went viral the other day when she won her first WTA title in Austin Texas.

She didn't go viral for being a hottie, which she is, but rather she want viral for the reason most people go viral these days, because she got political.

The proud Ukrainian refused to shake the hand of her Russian Opponent, like the Russian Opponent or Marta Kostyuk herself have absolutely anything to do with the war that is currently going on.

If anything, it's pretty dehumanizing and poor sportsmanship to reduce another elite player to someone who doesn't deserve your respect because of their passport / citizenship, because the people who run the countries are butting heads in their palaces.

The 20 year old, who has been critical of Russian and Belarusian players being allowed to play in the WTA despite the way, because as you know, you must boycott and ban everyone who have nothing to do with conflicts I am sure her 20 year old brain doesn't even grasp.

It's pretty divisive and the kind of thing that should probably get her fined, but I guess I am just a person who doesn't put people in boxes to discriminate against them for. Could you imagine if she took the same approach to not shaking hands with any other minority due to where they were born, or what color their skin is, or what religion they are, or what gender or sexuality they identify as. It'd be a very different story!

She obviously dedicated her win to the war in Ukraine, the people fighting and dying, while she's kickin' it in the USA making millions of dollars from her brand sponsors and WTA wins, like a TRUE hero.

I don't have any opinion on any wars I don't understand, or any countries, culturee I don't understand. I just have an opinion on people being garbage racists even when they are winning.

Here are some of her hottest pics!
