Zero Interest

A small editorial from a snobby journalist.

Zero Interest
By: Leo Schofield

There is little buzz about the women's [tennis] matches. It's a foregone conclusion that the Williams sisters will share the spoils.
Watching Serena liquidate Amelie Mauresmo was a bit like observing a mean lion gobbling up a petrified Christian - although one wasn't in the crowd at the Colosseum at the time. Venus or Serena, Serena or Venus? Who knows? Who cares!


Thoughts? Mine are that he's a sexist chauvinistic pig but hey!

"They came for the Communists,
but I didn't speak up because
I wasn't a Communist. They came
for the Jews, but I didn't speak up
because I wasn't a Jew. They came
for the trade unionists, but I didn't
speak up because I wasn't a trade
unionist. They came for the Catholics,
but I didn't speak up because I was
a Protestant. Then they came for me,
but by that time there wasn't anyone
left to speak up for me."

I wouldn't say it's sexist... not really... he just seems to be annoyed about their dominance of the game. Whatever, it's still interesting enough for him to write about apparently... and, well... he's very wrong...

Was this a newspaper article or...? Just wondering.

It is from the Sunday Telegraph (Australia). He's known to be a conservative, old fuddy-duddy.

Well, that really explains it.!!! Maybe he should take a little more "fuddy" and a lot less "duddy".

Its not fair to generalise to all womens matches just because he finds the williams sisters boring. He sounds like a prick.
