Tennis Channel: "1st Russian woman to win a grand slam...Maria Sharapova?

I dont know how many of you have the Tennis Channel but recently they added this trivia portion to their commercials. Well I've just noticed that they dont know the answers to their own questions.



The Question, Who was the 1st Russian woman to win a grand slam singles title.

a.Elena Dementieva
b.Anastasia Myskina
c.Svetlana Kuznetsova
d.Maria Sharapova


The commercial ends with option a,b, and c fading away and you're left with Maria Sharapova which is obviously wrong. Its Anastasia Myskina

Yeah cause I knew all the answers to the other 5-8 questions and that one came along and I was like this is easy, Myskina. Then the guy said Maria Sharapova and I was like what the hell? I wonder if anyone has called or e-mailed them.

That's so embarrassing.

I don't know what it's going to take for tennis to stop overhyping Sharapova.

*Venus*Serena*Kuznetsova*Schiavone*Taylor*Bartoli* *A.Bondarenko*Zheng*Duval*Safarova*Kirilenko*

*Federer*Nadal*Djokovic*Tsonga*Murray*Monfils*Gulb is*Young*Wawrinka*Mirnyi*

Disrepectful for Myskina, really (I so miss her )

But Maria's so much better than all the Russians put together that only her name sticks out.

I think there's a conspiracy to emphasize Maria's accomplishments and minimize her opponents'ones...
