Shame on you

One of the biggest stories to come out of this year's Australian Open has nothing to do with what is happening on the court.

No, I'm not talking about Tamira Paszek's... chestal region.

The bigger story comes from this picture of Sania Mirza:

The up and coming Indian star might be facing jail time for her "actions" in this photo, in which she appears to be "rest[ing] her feet near the Indian flag".

Mirza has faced criticism before and briefly considered quitting the sport because of it.

It might be just me, but it kind of looks like someone just stuck that flag in the foreground of the picture unbenounced to Mirza.

On a somewhat related note, I probably should have done an Australian Open Preview, adhering to tradition, but honestly, I just forgot that it was happening.
