some people don't know... and a lot of average fans learned a lot about him already tonight and now they are probably watching it with a little more heart.

yes, i can understand it annoying a real tennis fan who knows all about this stuff, but he JUST came back and is playing so well, i think it's warranted.

Agree with Faboozadoo15. They certainly want to attract more fans to tennis and many people watching do not follow tennis closely enough to know much about the players' personal issues if they know anything at all.

Sometimes I do wish they'd get some new material, however.

i agree. "and just when he got over breaking his neck, he got a virus. and just when he started getting over the virus, he lost his hearing. and just when he got back his hearing, his father died...and so on....". i don't mean to be unsympathetic but enuf already.

@ this thread. I didn't hear anyone complaining when the Williams sisters troubles from 2004 are mentioned.

Exclamation

There is another part of Blake's story that ESPN won't go into and I think for good reason.

Unhappy

It has nothing to do with other siblings, but something more serious.

There has been a disturbing story going on in the US that has gotten little media attention that has to do with black celebrities and James' family has gotten caught up in it. About two years ago, some high profile black male celebrities who are married to white women started getting racist vicious hate mail. The writer, who many believe is a white woman, says that the black man will be castrated and burned alive if he doesn't leave his white wife. Some of the celebrities who have recieved this letter are Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas, actor Taye Diggs, a Miami Dolphin football player, and a few basketball players. Blake's parents got the letter after this person saw James and his family in a magazine. The FBI is supposed to be investigating this case.
