Asinine Comment Of The Week:
An English commentator on the Eurosport television channel, recently opined, during the Tsonga/Verdasco men's singles quarterfinal match, that Frenchman Tsonga might be particularly inspired to play well because Barack Obama had been elected president of the United States of America. Tsonga is French and dark-skinned. Had John McCain been elected president instead of Obama, are we to assume that Verdasco, who is a slightly lighter-skinned Spanish player, would be particularly motivated to play well?
