Match point.

So BBC sports broadcaster John Inverdale intimates (and by intimates I mean that he came out and said it) that Wimbledon’s Women’s Singles Champion Marion Bartoli’s father must have told her that she would have to work extra hard to be successful since she was never going to be a “looker” like Maria Sharapova.

Then he apologized for his “clumsy” turn of phrase as he tried to make his point.

Oh Mr. Inverdale – no apology is necessary.

Obviously your point was that you are unprofessional, dishonorable, and chauvinist – as well as unqualified to commentate on women’s sport of any kind.

So I say, well said old chap.

Point taken.
