    Re: Great Tennis Journalism

    This is strange, But I do think Chrissie meant in the whole draw when it started. But Halep is not a better grass-court player than Kvitova. I also wouldn't say Halep is BETTER on grass than the next...

    It doesn't mean much to me - it's more like trivia - but to each their own.

    Which means it's not a stat worth giving. :) The mangled phrasing is a product of the mangled notion. Two, okay. The third? Who cares?

    I guess the way to say it is "the only player to win second...

    I've always used "pero" for "but." Wonder if this is regional. I am not a native Spanish speaker - or any kind of Spanish speaker. Fernandez is my husband's name. He's from Mexico.

    Now I must know why you write in so many different languages. I'm impressed! What is the difference between the 2 "mas" usages in Spanish? I could google it, but I'm already here...

    I am much more bothered by the incomplete sentence and poor grammar. But I'm an editor, and I seem to be much more sympathetic to typos and gaffes than the average person. A lot of web copy is...

    I wonder if this is an auto-populate feature by keyword. The metadata could have been that Radwanksa was playing Safarova in this match. I worked on a website ages ago that had an auto-populate photo...

    Great Tennis Journalism

    Why does a cop stop one person who speeds and not everyone? Coaching is the speeding of tennis. Everyone knows the risks and accepts the consequences.

    We’ll probably never hear from Ramos on this,...

    I normally don't pile on journalists and editors in this forum, especially for minor errors, but Yahoo Sports should know better than to write this headline:

    Funny, usually I'm the sensitive one. I think it's funny that she is so greatly irritated at what she perceives as the banality of Rafa's life and a persistent mischaracterization of him. (Or...

    Feels like a long column to me. Observations, opinion, obviously someone's own slant on Rafa. They don't try to hide that. I assume the Times readers are familiar with the writer and thus that's the...

    I'm pretty sure Roger is very fond of Andy Roddick as competition. Given a certain botched overhead in the 2009 Wimbledon final, I'd say Roger may have even gotten a tattoo of Andy's name, right next...

    I love it when pundits say, as Cronin does in this article, that a player "is overdue to beat so-and-so." As though the universe sees to it that wins and loses balance out. If someone hasn't been...

    What's the error? That the ties aren't over yet and the victories could be 3-2, 4-1 or 5-0?
