ITF Tennis.com: Serena Williams Wore 'NORMAL' Dress

Sunday, August 10, 2008

The ITF Tennis.com Olympic Tennis Event site has found it necessary to differentiate between a Williams sister and the other players.

On the "As It Happens - Day 1: Sunday August 10" page, the writer makes the following entry:

"2:40pm: World No. 47 Olga Govortsova is about to start against Serena Williams. The formbook and history suggests this shouldn't prove too hard for the American. For those of you who like this stuff and I know there's plenty of you, she's wearing a very fetching red headband and 'normal' white dress. She also looks very focussed."

Now, this person mentions Samantha Stosur, Alize Cornet, Caroline Woznacki, Francesca Schiavone, Marta Domahowska and other women as well. In not one instance did he refer to anything about any of the other women as "normal."

If ITF Tennis.com is going to use such terms, I believe that it is only fair that they share with us what their sense of normalcy is so that we can know what they are talking about. And if this is a 'personal' assessment and not tennis commentary, then state it somewhere else where this can be clearly distinguished.

The games have just begun, let's play nice now.
