:lol: BBC insult Bartoli and the Brits

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/tennis/6264190.stm

1435: Really bad news for teenaged boys as Ivanovic slips a break down against Petrova in the final set, and Jankovic is a break down against Bartoli - who appears to be on a similar fitness regime to most British players. Still, Vaidisova has struck the first blow in the decider against Mauresmo and leads 2-0. Not forgetting you ladies, fans of diminutive, argumentative types will be loving Court 18 where Hewitt has taken a two-sets-to-one lead over little 'Willy' Canas.

She maybe "not fit" but she is actually playing a 4th round match and took a set to the n3 seed

Yes she would but that has nothing to do with the jokey comment.

I have noticed the British journalists are a lot meaner than American ones. Sue Mott or whatever who comes on ESPN as the "cultural correspondant" is downright cruel.

I actually didn't want to be funny. I'm saying that Bartoli might have the same fitness level of the brits but her talent and her feeling are sooo much better that she doesn't actually need to be extremely fit to win matches.
That's why the comment is a nonsense.

They may insult her as much as they want. She is already in the quarters

Life is so gloriously improbable
