MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

It’s SouZA, not SouSA – this matters

The similarity in names between Joao SOUZA of Brazil and Joao SOUSA of Portugal was always sort of funny.

Even the Getty Images archives confuse the two

But in the wake of the Brazilian SOUZA’s lifetime ban and $200,000 fine for multiple match-fixing offences, it’s pretty important to not confuse the two.

That didn’t happen. And the crap websites just cut-pasted (it’s still not fixed).

SOUSA is, understandably, furious. “The difference between S and Z is apparently small but in this case ends up being enormous as it associates me with something unimaginable,” he wrote.

(Pic above is … Souza).
