Just found this on the BBC tennis site. I think the reporter does not know about tennis LOL. I have highlighted the bit in red and then look at the picture.

I think Yahoo fired the sports writer, but he got a new job in England!

It is not even worth writing to the BBC to point out their small mistake LOL. As they will never reply.

Oh well
