Cool Ever-improving Bondarenko

Did anybody else notice how uninspired the editors from sonyericssonwtatour.com are? Truly gifted editors, I'd say. At least I'll always remember Bondarenko as ever-improving...

New Haven:

Re: Ever-improving Bondarenko

Ironic considering she has stagnated. Her sister has made bigger steps in the last 4 months.

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Kiki Bertens, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske

Re: Ever-improving Bondarenko

Popular Austrian Sybille Bammer?

Does that mean she's popular *in* Austria?

Are you a raving mental case with awesome groundstrokes? I'll probably like you...
Hantuchova : Goerges : Johansson : Rybarikova : Li

Learning to love/Liking the look of...
Zakopalova : Lucic : Krajicek : Cetkovska : Cibulkova
Gajdosova : Govortsova : Olaru : Robson : Pliskova

Well, our "Steirische Eiche" Arnie was right. The dumb local politicians wanted to "punish" him by renaming the Stadium. But Arnie came first

Re: Ever-improving Bondarenko

Haha.... it looks like a copy-paste job by the WTA editors!
Since I was distracted with my assignment, I noticed a few others:

"Czech starlet" Lucie Safarova
"popular Austrian" Sybille Bammer
"talented Frenchwoman" Tatiana Golovin

The only one they seem to have changed was Elena Dementieva, who went from a "former US Open runner-up" to an "elegant Russian"!!

2/3rds of of young Americans can't find Britain or France on a map, I doubt they know about leaders' backgrounds.

It's 11% but it's still fucking hilarious...

my personal favourite quote :

"More young U.S. citizens in the study knew that the island featured in last season's TV show "Survivor" is in the South Pacific than could find Israel."
