By a British court, that London's Daily Telegraph was justified in branding Robert Dee as the "world's worst tennis pro." In April 2008, after Dee snapped a record-tying streak of 54 straight losses on the pro circuit, the Telegraph and some 30 other media outlets labeled Dee with that title. Dee and his lawyer later secured corrections and in some cases libel damages, claiming that the tag was ruining his reputation and costing him future jobs. But the Telegraph refused to retract, leading to a legal showdown—replete with testimony from witness Boris Becker, a former world No. 1—and a high court judge's ruling that "there is nothing of which the claimant complains that cannot be justified." Dee, 23, remains unranked.
