2011 Wimbledon is producing some interesting developments offline, on the court, and online, on Twitter. While the World watches as Maria Sharapova is losing to Petra Kvitova, 3-6, 3-4, and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice bites her nails, Twitter is in a full-hate-on process.
NBC insists on consistently showing her fiance, New Jersey Nets star Sasha Vujacic, cheering for her as often as possible. In fact, the negative tweets have become so frequent, “Sasha Vujacic” is a trending topic.
To say the Twitterverse was pissed-off with Sasha Vujacic is an understatement.

Sasha Vujacic is trending but not Sharapova or Kvitova? I guess it’s good he has this exposure- he’s unemployed now.

Sasha Vujacic should be more into the NBA lockout then Wimbledon.

Sasha Vujacic does look a bit of a tool in the players box.
