Re: Cliff did it again.
Of all the announcers, at least Clifford Drysdale makes it a point to pronounce players names correctly. Most of them butcher names and Brad Gilbert wouldn't even bother to try.
As for mixing-up Venus and Serena, that's probably due to the bottle of Crown Royal he's always swilling from. If I learned nothing else in Miami, it's that Cliff Drysdale is a loose cannon. He did an autograph signing one evening and went berserk on a woman because she was wearing a John Newcomb t-shirt. He ripped the shirt off her and dumped what was left in his Crown Royal bottle over her head. Fuck. Needless to say, that was the end of the autograph signing.
I won't even go into the shit he pulled later in the parking lot.
