Darren Rovell, an American ESPN correspondent known mostly for being pretty terrible, wanted to get in on the big sexism controversy in tennis so he could rack up those retweets.
After wading into some very scientific polling on the WTA vs. ATP this morning, Darren posted this absolutely glorious tweet with a picture from Roger Federer’s Miami practice session from today. You know, practicing because the ATP tournament hasn’t started yet.
Yes, a match vs. Dogomolov. Who’s that, you ask?

Federer's next opponent, if he can get past Dogomolov, will be Adele Dazeem.

Andy Roddick was there to set him straight:
As I'm sure you're aware of Darren, the main draw for the men hasn't started yet in Miami ….. That is a practice https://t.co/y0RzTAFjxZ

Now this is just getting sad:
Unfortunately, Darren didn’t appreciate my joke. 🙁
