Tennis-X Previews and Notes: Querrey Beats Odesnik, Lusts After Hannah

HANNAH FANTASY: ‘ARE YOU TRYING TO SEDUCE ME MRS. STORM?’ — The wardrobe must be working. ESPN’s Pardon the Interruption’s Tony Kornheiser was suspended for essentially saying workmate Hannah Storm dresses like a skank on The Mothership. Apparently American Sam Querrey doesn’t mind, as Sam tweeted, “ESPN’s Hannah Storm is a such a babe.” Kornheiser was suspended for the radio comment: “Hannah Storm in a horrifying, horrifying outfit today. She’s got on red go-go boots and a catholic school plaid skirt…way too short for somebody in her 40s or maybe early 50s by now. She’s got on her typically very, very tight shirt. She looks like she has sausage casing wrapping around her upper body…” Got to like those f-me boots, eh Sam?
