I thought Simon Reed was bad. But Eurosport guys are already discounting Ferrer. I mean I understand the reasoning:

So you tell me who is Davyenko? and What happened to Ferrer?
And is that how you spell defeat?

I have nothing against the brits. I just feel a lot of us MTF members can do a 200% better job than these idiots. Simon Reed thinks Djokovic played OK against Nadal but Murray was great. Now this guy has 2 major errors in a headline. I mean come on!

as i said british media is on par with american media for the worst media of any nation, the bias they have is just sick. that barry flatman guy in timesonline said nadal fears murray on clay, i mean u wonder if these things have a brain.

It's ironic that while UK and US are such strong civilizations that English becomes the world language, they keep embarrassing themselves how uncivilized they sometimes are because we all know their language.

What Reed wrote about Verdasco was far more disproportionate than the rubbish he wrote about Murray.Flatman wrote an article trashing Murray last year equally as poor as his article praising him this.Neither example points to bias, only overhyping of failure or success, laced with stupidity.Flatman in particular isn't pro Murray he's just pro extreme storylines.Murray's either finished or destined for greatness.It's how a lousy writer gets noticed.

The sad part is that a 6-year-old kid could do better than most of the MTF members

I see UK Eurosport is as stupid as the German one. You wouldn't believe how many mistakes the German version has daily. For example yesterday's top headline "watch livescoring from Barcelona Nadal-Stepanek":confused: since when does Davydenko look like Stepanek???

If you think Eurosport is bad you should watch the BBC. Or even worse readt the Tennis section of its website. Half the time their 'facts' are just plain wrong. I think I read on there recently that Nadal has never lost in Rome. What about last year?

No need to get personal. What is wrong with some of you people. Someone doesn't agree with you so you through insults at them.

And I think you'll find that the record books say it was a loss. If it said he lost due to struggling with an injury that would be stating the fact, saying he didn't loose isn't.
