"Expect a Sharapova/Mauresmo Final" Aussie sports commentor.

Is it me or is it just logical to look at the draw before going on air! These were the confident words of a radio sports commentor!

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

LOL. DO these people really get paid for this ? There is like NO respect for this sport. Maybe in a few more years will get more respect. Tennis is still a relatively new pro sport, no?

Red face

Did this so called commentator look at the draw and realize that they are on the same side of the draw?

How stupid!
