A gender mistake has been made
Jimmy Arias and Ted Robinson, the Tennis Channel commentators for the Capdeville-Tursonov match in Indianapolis, showed a photo of Rafael Nadal's arms in a sleeveless shirt, compared with Capdeville's, for the purpose of demeaning Capdeville's physique. Then they said that Capdeville looked like "the guy who didn't get chosen for pick-up basketball." Wow. That is really "bitchy" and "catty." I guess Arias and Robinson must be women.
