Re: Williams & Henin: Who Will Win the Sony Ericsson Open?
This article really draws the line.
I just think it's unprofessional for any sports writer to write down an advantage for one player is being that another player's family member die around this time years ago.
If any sports writer would have written that for the Serena/Mauresmo match last year, that the advantage goes to Mauresmo because Serena's sister Yetunde died around this time years ago, there would have been a catastrophic uproar on this forum.
The writer of this article could have easily presented an advantage without bringing up that topic.
