    They just don't care about accurate reporting when it comes to tennis. If they made mistakes like this reporting baseball, football, hockey or basketball they'd be out on their rears.

    From the Russian newspaper Kommersant:

    The clay season has opened for men’s tennis this week. The attention is drawn to Estoril Open that is attended by Roger Federer. His main challenger is Russia’s Nikolay Davydenko, who also plays in the tournament, and the chance is that he will advance to the final to oppose the Swiss. Having spend three months and a half without a new title, Roger Federer decided to show up at the Estoril Open, where he eventually defeated Belgium's Olivier Rochus (4-6 6-3 6-2) in the first-round match.

    Winner of 2003 Estoril Open, second-seed Nikolay Davydenko of Russia is in the second round as well, and the chance is that he will challenge Roger Federer in the final.

    Marat Safin also plays in Estoril. Safin, who had won just a single match before defeating Thomas Berdych of Czech Republic at the Davis Cup quarterfinal match in Moscow, showed the high-quality tennis again, when he saw off Juan Carlos Ferrero in the first round.
    Right...

    This is why we should admire tennis writers like Bud Collins. Half of what he says may be completely off the wall, but at least he truly loves the sport.

    Yeah, and they're all in one country called "The Mediterranean"

    AP headline today: "Wimbledon to keep middle Sunday an off day." Which some editor thinks is more newsworthy than the CHANGES Wimbledon has announced, including equal prize money for men and women this year!

    Am I missing something? Was equal prize money at Wimbledon old news? If not, that headline writer really missed the point of the story.

    Megan they bit the bullet on equal prize money last year. They did however take a major hit on the "scheduling chaos" as the article puts it for not scheduling play on middle Sunday resulting in Federer getting five days off while Rafa played five days straight. They do make a concession if I'm reading this right.

    Wimbledon officials ruled out scheduling matches on the middle Sunday— except as an “emergency option” in the event of a major weather backlog—and said the tournament will not follow the lead of the French Open by starting on a Sunday.
    The All England Club said Tuesday it had investigated extending the tournament after poor weather caused scheduling chaos last year.
    So they'll do it if last year repeats itself.

    They've alway had this emergency emergency option. There has been middle Sunday play three times ('91, '97, '04).

    If last year wasn't an emergency what has to happen for one to be declared? Oh wait, it was only an emergency for some players.
