STUPID JOURNALISM Alert: Volandri won Palermo: Yes Andreev Has Seen This Article

This deserves a thread of its own, this is shoddy journalism at its worst.

Volandri titles in Italy

Palermo, Italy (Sports Network) - Sixth-seeded Italian Filippo Volandri notched his second career singles title with a straight-set win in Sunday's final at the $390,000 Palermo International tennis event.

Volandri registered a 6-4, 6-2 triumph over Russian Igor Andreev. On Saturday, the Italian posted identical straight-set victories in a quarterfinal and semifinal match.

Last year's Palermo runner-up to Czech Tomas Berdych, Volandri pocketed $53,000 for his work on Sunday.

Andreev claimed $31,000 as the runner-up.

10/02 10:05:35 ET

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Article: Volandri has allegedly won Palermo already

I wish! What an idiot.

Djokovic // Del Potro // Paire // Thiem // M. Zverev // Youzhny
Coric // Khachanov // Donaldson // A. Zverev // Bublik
Ferrero // Rafter

But also ... that makes me ashamed to be a journalism major.

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Re: Article: Volandri has allegedly won Palermo already

I mean come on the score isn't right and also if they knew this already. I'd be saying "It's a fix, it's a fix".

Sack the clown who wrote this.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Maybe this journalist is a poster from WTA world, who has been banned.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: STUPID JOURNALISM Alert: Volandri has won Palermo already???

Great result Andreev won 0-6 6-1 6-3.

This journalist is a fool and a moron and I wonder what they were smoking when they wrote this.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

I wonder what they will say to retract that mistake. Some possibilities:

"A positive proof of divide intervention"
"Journalist is caught smoking pot"
"WTA virus out of control"

I think anyone who is going to a tournament should keep this article and get Igor to read it.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: STUPID JOURNALISM Alert: Volandri won Palermo

this is pretty bad. he/she even invented a score :retard:

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)
