Who is more famous Mary Pierce or Maria Sharapova?
This sounds like a dumb question and it probably is.
But I just found it quite annoying and disrespectful that one of the networks who's airing the Open treated Mary Pierce as if she were nobody and reported Maria's loss as the upset of the tournament so far. I know Maria is the next big thing and the media world wide is hyping her. I understand the majority of tennis fans (mostly casual) recognize Maria better than Mary nowadays (Mary used to be quite well-known for her obvious beauty and power game) and therefore ppl are more interested to know about Maria but then treating Mary Pierce, a two time GS winner as if she had won nothing big is full of ignorance and disrespect. They reported that Maria beat herself rather than Mary beat her, which is bullshit and shows how little they know about the game. I can't believe those ingnoramous ppl are doing the job of covering the Open. No wonder tennis will never become big in my country despite the number of ppl who play which is supposed to be one of the biggest of all sports.
