N E 1 4 10 Ice?

This article on the BBC Sport section is so strangely written. It’s just an endless succession of staccato sentences that is entirely unnecessary and makes the whole thing quite unreadable. Which. Is. A. Shame.

The following is just an excerpt from the piece. These are not selected at random; they actually do follow on like this from one another:

“Many years ago these scenes were probably played out night after night within a deep sleep and probably day after day on the practice court.

When Djokovic first picked up a tennis racket, on a court opposite his parent's Pizzeria half-way up a Serbian mountain, this was the dream.

His victory is thoroughly deserved because he won through the hardest section of the draw and dropped just a single set.

Hewitt, Safin, Bagdahtis, Nalbandian, Ferrero and Ferrer were all in his quarter and Federer was the man in the semis."

I just hear a robot talking.
