A non-teary Vera Zvonareva leaves the court after losing the Family Circle Cup championship
Yes, we all know that--a long time ago--Vera Zvonareva used to cry on court during her matches. She has not done that in years, but the fact that Zvonareva is a different player now, emotionally and behaviorally speaking, does not phase tennis commentators at all. Every time Zvonareva steps onto a court, we have to hear about her "emotional problems." Vera moved on a long time ago, but out-of-touch sports commentators never move on.
