Fowler Falls For Fake Website, Makes Crazy Claims About Tennis StarTimothy Burke1/19/15 9:59pmFiled to: tv is lying to youmedia meltdownsaustralian opentennischris fowlerespnoopssatireblunders183EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalink Tonight's Australian Open coverage on ESPN2 featured announcer Chris Fowler explaining to the audience that Japanese pro Kei Nishikori is, among other things, the highest-paid tennis player in the world and the owner of a restaurant chain, a soccer team, and clothing and perfume lines. None of those things are true, and they all come from notorious satire site MediaMass.Advertisement Fowler cited Nishikori as having earned $46 million in 2014. The actual number is $11 million, according to Forbes. That makes him the ninth-highest paid player—not the richest. That's okay, Chris. It happens to the best of us.
