Recent revelations of match fixing and Maria Sharapova’s positive drug test have shaken sport fan Janice Dixon’s complete disinterest in tennis.
“It’s been a long time since I’ve cared about tennis but lately I’ve found myself actually reading articles about it,” said the 64-year-old accountant from Sydney.
“This whole thing about it being fixed is fascinating and I even watched a handful of games just to see if I can spot the moment a game is thrown. I couldn’t though, although Bernard Tomic seemed to do it lot but I’m told that’s just how he plays.”
Ms Dixon said Maria Sharapova’s announcement that she received a positive drug test at the Australian Open had got her to pay attention to tennis for the second time in months.
“At first I was surprised to learn Maria was a tennis player, I thought she was one of those Kardashian people. You know, famous for being famous.”
“Her excuse was hilarious and now I wonder who’s next to announce a positive test and what nonsense will they spin?
“We at least know it won’t be an Australian. They’re all taking something but definitely nothing performance enhancing.”
Ms Dixon said she even plans to watch more tennis this year, mainly to see what stupid thing Nick Kyrgios does next.
“Tennis is as boring as watching the grass its played on grow but at least I know a few player’s names now.”
