Gimelstob

Alize Cornet
Pennetta won, Berdych won, Cornet won, Sprem won, Safin lost, Szavay lost and Gimelstob keeps apologising.

Gimelstob, the recently elected ATP Players Council rep, is being continuously hit by bans and criticism. You’d think someone with his pedigree and imposing playing record would have more respect for tennis. Obviously he is thought highly of where it counts to keep his commentary job for The Championships and be elected to the Players Council. He also keeps his column for Sports Illustrated where the usually delightful Jon Wertheim fails to defend him but instead points out Tursunov. It’s a fair call too, Tursunov is much more erudite and interesting in his interviews and blogs that Gimelstob is in his paid column.
