Yeah.
We've gotten to the point where ESPN or yahoo are not accurate sources for any tennis story.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."
-Charlie Strong, assistant head coach of the Florida Gators

Black presidents of the US=1
Black head coaches in the SEC=0
Something needs to change.

792 wins of 918 matches is actualy 86.3% winning percentage - not 79.4% . (her real W/L record is 713 wins in 894 matches - 79.8%)


According to this thread from last week:

If you notice any other factual errors please post them in this thread.
7 of last 19 slam champions have better career w/l record than Lindsay (Graff 0.894, Seles 0.831, Serena 0.826, Henin 0.818, Venus 0.807, Hingis 0.803 and Clijsters 0.799). And dont forget that Navratilova (i think about 87%), Evert (about 90%) and BJK (more than 80%) is not including in this list, so she is even not TOP5 W/L player in USA tennis history.

ESPN

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)
