Why do sporting commentators refer to players by their nationality instead of naming them?A sports commentator at Wimbledon persistantly calls Venus Williams 'The American' but Andrew Murray is always called by his first name. Immaturity or prejudice!
May be it is easy to call by country name as they get easily identified by their country. Remembering names may be difficult. There might be the reason of pride and prejudice also.
