Re: Stupid things commentators say

Chrissie said that Push's serve is A WEAPON and that was against Aryna, whose serve IS actually a weapon.

Re: Stupid things commentators say

A German Eurosport commentator confused Qiang Wang with Xinyu Wang !

He talked about Qiang at Aus Open who played a match on another court and said that's the girl who had to retire in China (Shenzhen) in tears this year vs Maria Sharapova and Maria had to comfort her.

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."


Serena Williams Maria Sharapova Jelena Jankovic
A. Radwanska V. Zvonareva C. Wozniacki P. Kvitova
N. Petrova A. Chakvetadze A. Myskina L. Davenport M. Hingis

Too bad someone did not (incorrectly) correct him/her that was Xiyu anot Xinyu Wang with Sharapova. Then it would have all.

(dislaimer: I know it was Xinyu to prevent misunderstanding)

I don't see it at all, even if she didn't mean it in a shady way.

With Stubbs being a close friend of Steffi Graf, I think the shade is real.

GretaArn - Naomi Osaka
