    Re: Great Tennis Journalism

    It was a screen shot of tennisreporters.net homepage and the headline is "Djokovic claims first Masters Series clay clown"


    It's been fixed on their homepage now.

    Thanks for letting us know. It was definitely worth a laugh.

    Re: Great Tennis Journalism

    Gotta figure that Wimbledon will produce several articles with doozy predictions, or mis-facts (Murray still on the WTA tour? Davydenko suddenly playing for Uzbekistan?), so this thread deserves a revival.

    In the meantim, this roundtable discussion of tennis writers was pretty fun (even if they had to go to four countries and two continents to find knowledgeable participants). It was a link in El Jon's Wednesday mailbag (he's one of the writers involved).

    I particularly enjoyed the comments about Borg's prediction abilities, and Gasquet's chances at the US Open this year.

    Last week's SI had an "article" on RG. it was one page writeup, and one page picture of Ivanovic.

    It was followed by a 9 page report on the ping pong diplomacy thing from the 70's
    Thanks for the medal Johanna!

    Plus, they referred to her as Ana Ivanovic, author of several popular crime novels.

    So Federer is going for his 14th Grand Slam? I like that error.

    Re: Great Tennis Journalism

    Apparently, Tanasugarn defeated Ashley Harklewood this week.

    You'd think they would misspell Tanasugarn, if anything, considering the site's obvious Americentrism.

    That was fun! Some of them are silly, though. I doubt many of them would do well in our various prediction contests.

    From this link:

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

    In doubles, Toronto’s Daniel Nestor and Serbian partner Nenad Zimonjic advanced to the final with a 6-3, 7-6 (5) win over India’s Leander Paes and Lukas Dlouhy of the Czech Republic.

    The No. 2 seeds will play the winner of the other semifinal, between Americans Mark and Bob Bryan and Australia’s Paul Hanley and Jordan Kerr, which was scheduled later Saturday.

    end quote

    I guess they are really triplets.

    Ha, this was the first time I noticed this thread, and I was expecting something a little different... Maybe the word great should be in quotation marks?

    "Safina has reached the final in five of her last six tournaments, including the French Open in May where she lost to compatriot Maria Sharapova."
