Chris Chase of Yahoo Sports thinks Aga and Marion are unidentifiable from eachother

...and have the same body type


"It's bad enough when two tennis players wear the same kit on the court. It's much, much worse when those two players have similar hair color, hair style, body type and other attire, and are generally unidentifiable during points.

Just some Yahoo Sprots Blogger who, not surprisingly, gets a lot of criticism. I included a link above.

Does he watch tennis at all? I can spot Marion's practice swings anywhere.

Re: Chris Chase of Yahoo Sports thinks Aga and Marion are unidentifiable from eachot

He is right! If you ignore movement, swing/service motions, stature, inter-point routines and so on, there was no way to tell them apart when you had the ES player stream running in a tiny window on your desktop. Sometimes I had to resort to something like: Ah, the player who is looking like Bartoli must be Bartoli! This is unacceptable.

There is a simple solution: In many other sports, like in table tennis, there are uniforms in precisely two colours: blue and red that are assigned to the players. But I think that might not be enough. C. Chase mentioned the irritating similarity in hair colour and hair style. I think we can learn from Manga here: Every player on the tour gets her own unique hair colour and hair style assigned. I think that would really help people to follow womens tennis.

No, sadly it is not an April Fools day joke. Every article that Chris Chase writes, no matter what day of the year, is just as idiotic. He also writes a football blog, and it is just as bad as his tennis blog. I can't imagine how he got a job writing. I am guessing that he gets paid based on how mnay clicks his articles get, and he typically gets a large number of clicks from people who just want to comment that he is an idiot.

No more than you'd expect from Yahoo. Yesterday they ran an article on Britain's teenage Olympic hopefuls and, under Laura Robson's name, showed a picture of Jelena Jankovic.

Sadly, this was also their "Most Popular Video" for Saturday.

"If you practice for ten years, you may begin to please yourself, after 20 years you may become a performer and please the audience, after 30 years you may please even your guru, but you must practice for many more years before you finally become a true artist—then you may please even God." --Ali Akbar Khan, 1922-2009

Jesus Christ

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

And accidentally continue taking something that is not a PED because WADA couldn't bother to inform their athletes in a proper fashion simply does not warrant a harsher punishment.

Re: Chris Chase of Yahoo Sports thinks Aga and Marion are unidentifiable from eachot

He was obviously referring to the fact that both of them were wearing same colored navy blue dress during their SF match. And from certain distant camera angles (especially on small computer video tubes) it could potentially become confusing for a few seconds..
