Poor Melanie's sis'

Pam just embarrassed her on National TV.

She covered Melanie's 9 year old little sister's eyes and told her to spell "Believe."

The poor girl spelled it "B-e-l-E-i-v-e.

Before she knew it, Pam made a pithy conciliatory remark and left.

Melanie's sisters was left to stand there, mouth open and, to me, looking a little horrified.

(I admit, I may be seeing this through the lens of fatherhood myself and imagining how I'd feel if that was my 9 year old daughter.)

Re: Poor Melanie's sis'

If that's how you decribed it, then it sounds pretty bad. It's not the first time children's emotions are taken for granted.

Seriously though, the commentators have been interviewing the whole family all day. Mary Joe also interviewed the 9 year-old sister earlier today, asking her what does she think of all this attention Melanie has been getting...She was really nervous and mumbling her words. Then Pam interviewed her in the stands before the match and embarrassed her when she misspelled "believe."

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

Re: Poor Melanie's sis'

i loved melanie's twin sister's, who was beside her younger sister, reaction. she was left there feeling awkward, not knowing what to say to the younger sister

and pam, pretty much just left after that, saying "back to you" on her way up
