Billion mistakes in this article!!

Sportsticker got themself an embarrasment again:


The 19-year-old Clijsters also withdrew in Memphis and Scottsdale due to a leg injury. Three weeks ago at Amelia Island she advanced to the semifinals but retired in the second set against Justine Henin with a stomach virus.

Find the mistake(s)

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

true, there is only one mistake in that article obviously the name of the player.

but

they had earlier made another mistake in the earlier version of that article in that they stated that Jelena was winning the match before she retired.

they then re-wrote the article and corrected that and then also added the bit on that Rythmboy has mentioned.

So it was error littered from the start, even the 'correction'

You're so right. In almost every article from them you can find a mistake

The mistake was printing that article as it was.
