Something I forgot to mention last night

The commentators are assholes. Last night, during Justine's match, they kept on talking about how badly Justine was playing, and how, even though she won the match, if she kept playing like this she would be out of it soon. Okay, that's fine. The bad part is that when Roddick was playing badly the other day and he still won his match, the commentators were tripping over themselves to congratulate him on "winning ugly". And that "winning ugly" was one of the most important aspects in a champion, and that true champions could find a way to win even when not playing his or her best. Where was this talk when Justine won her match? These commentators suck.

You bring up a good point! And they aren't even good at their job. On the women's side, they just watch one match, and if it's a blow out out, they'll go "Oh yes she's going all the way to the finals." If it's a struggle, they'll quickly change their vote to someone else LOL.
