I think the article is about the Champions Race, so they're right

Re: And Tennis Journalism hits an all-time low

Noooo, they got it WRONG. It says "World Ranking" not champions.

Hypocrites always wanna play innocent,
Always wanna take it to the full out extent,
Always wanna make it seem like good intent,
And never wanna face it when it's time for punishment.

Re: And Tennis Journalism hits an all-time low

Read the article, too, quite a few mistakes in there. Federer is now Swedish, and Robin Soderling appears to have become Dutch.

ATP, please scrap the race.
Yahoo, do your homework. And if you are going to use the race rankings, at least use the latest version, not last week's.

Yahoo is the red-headed stepchild(sp) of tennis journalism. We should continue to beat him for general pleasure and tell him his REAL parents died of broken hearts because they couldn't bare to keep looking at his deformed mug.

What is so surprising about this? Yahoo has always been careless.

Oh, that boggles the mind.

You'd think that all the unpaid summer interns are back at school this time of year.



C'mon, Lleyton!

LOL. The "unpaid summer interns" would do a better job than this
