The Bolshevik Open

Commentating today during USA network's broadcast of the US Open, Jim Courier described  Lleyton Hewitt's counterpunching style of tennis as follows (soundbite transcribed by me):

"Hewitt gives you the rope to hang yourself with."

Courier has thus become the first commentator to apply Leninist analysis to tennis: "A capitalist will sell you the rope to hang him with."
