    So there you have it, Venus did actually win the AO once.

    We noted it when I missed the mistake in the "tennis news" thread. This is an AP story, not Yahoo itself. And it's the official story translated in most languages and travelling the world.

    Congrats on Venus' AO win, nelslus!

    From the link above:

    "Russia's Anna Chakvetadze is seeded sixth ahead of the America's Williams sisters, reigning champion Serena (No. 7) and 2007 Wimbledon winner Venus (No. 8). Slovakia's Daniela Hantuchova is the ninth seed with Italy's Marion Bartoli rounding out the top 10."

    I guess she needs a better PR Manager.
    Vive La... Italia?!

    They ALWAYS put that. I can't tell you how many times I've read that she plays for Italy, and I'm like "wtf?!?!" We should post how many times something says she plays for Italy this year.

    Too lazy to do any research and Bartoli is an Italian family name...

    Here is another one:

    http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/news;_yl...=afp&type=lgns

    Summary:
    The title reads:
    Fit Serena Vows to oust Henin as world tennis number one

    Then you read the article and nowhere in there does Serena "vows" to oust Justine. As a matter of fact, this is one of her most level headed press conference, from the point of view of a Serena detractor (I am). The closest she comes to saying that is:
    "Yeah, that's my goal mainly. I figure if I play well in a solid amount of tournaments, you know, I'll be able to take that ranking,"

    Go figure.

    What's wrong with this photo?

    In case they fix it:

    LOL @ Servia. They can't get the right picture or the right country. Also, that is probably one of the most unflattering pictures of Maria I've ever seen.

    For those too lazy to click, and before they correct it or something..


    "Q. What do you think about him? I mean, you were not sure what's coming your way most of the time, right?
    ANDY RODDICK: Well, I mean, he kind of established early he was getting in on pretty much anything he could. If he was getting one step into the court, even if he was behind the baseline, it seemed like he was charging.
    So I feel -- it was pretty cold, the ball wasn't going anywhere, so I figured maybe I would let him take his chances a little bit from back there. Over the long haul I felt like I might get head"

    From Yahoo, reporting the Key Biscayne final:

    "On his second match point, Davydenko ended things by ripping a cross-court winner down the line and out of the reach of Nadal."

    There you have it: a cross-court winner down the line. Next thing: A. Rod hits a massive home run for a double play!
