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.

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.

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

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.

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.

How is a mistake like that even possible? It's not as if they got someone's nationality wrong or something relatively minor - I'm struggling to find one correct bit of information in that article.

Re: STUPID JOURNALISM Alert: Volandri won Palermo

Volandri and Andreev were in the final that is the only correct thing in this article.

This has won the Stupid Journalism Award for the year.

Certainly an impressive 'result' for Volandri, but a poor result in the end.

Maybe it was supposed to be a fix but Andreev changed his mind mid match? ;)
