Yes. I started this thread in TAT1.0 as a place to put BAD journalism. A bit of sarcasm, if I may.

Haha yeah I got the sarcasm, but it took me three reads of the post before I realised that the photo wasn’t Kenin :oops: :oops: I’m out of practice

I guess one lesson she can learn it how to DO IT AGAIN. A 23 match win streak does not sound bad.
(The article then goes on to talk about learning about the LOSS to Sakkari, not the streak).

From this article:
Screenshot 2021-07-05 162928.jpg
Little known to his fans, Sampras reclaimed Greek citizenship after his 5th Wimbledon, and his 6th and 7th titles are actually credited to that nation.
Eat that, Stefanos Tsisipas.

(For the 1000th time, and here I sit, unemployed. Who writes this stuff?)

I didn't know he did that. Did he reclaim it under his real name?

Petreus Colossus Emeritus Sampras Grandiosus Excelsius.
He shortened it so it would fit in the standard Greek ID.
