Professional Tennis is a Disaster: The Australian Open

Professional tennis is completely uninteresting.  Do you know how bad it is?  The most interesting thing during the Australian Open was this:

The commentator on the right (former player and grand slam tournament winner Todd Woodbridge) sent an SMS to a fellow ex-tennis player, Renee Stubbs.  Well, Ms Stubbs shared the text with eventual women's champion Kim Clijsters, who then confronted the commentator on center court.  
Now, to Ms Clijsters' enormous credit, she was obviously on very friendly terms with Mr Woodbridge, who was rightfully embarrassed. 

Now this situation was pretty embarrassing for Mr Woodbridge, who could have been in a lot of trouble, but it is pretty clear that they are very close friends.  Unfortunately, this was the highlight of the entire tournament.  As a former tennis player of sorts, and having attended Wimbledon, the U.S. Open, and the French Open, it is highly disappointing that my childhood game has faded into obscurity.

By the way, Kim Clijsters won the women's title, and Novak Djokovic won the men's.  Yawn.
