Did I hear Ted Robinson right (Re: Gaudio) ?

Need clarification here. Ted Robinson was talking about Santoro's wins over top-10 players. He went on to mention Santoro's win over Gaston Gaudio (ranked 10 at the time) at the '06 Australian Open, but apparently that "doesn't count" to Robinson.

Did I hear that right and Robinson was being an ass, or did I hear it wrong?

no, he said that and the John called him out on it.

Why would he say that though?

Ted Robinson is an idiot who doesn't know anything about tennis. As much as Gaudio sucks now, who is he to judge what "counts" and what does not? :retard:

Where do American networks find these people? I have never been this annoyed with commentators for any other sport.

Re: Did I hear Ted Robinson right (Re: Gaudio) ?

that's pretty rude if he did say that. sure, maybe a lot of people think that, but to come out and say it on TV is rude.

My question is why would a lot of people think that, let alone Ted Robinson.

all of that


Ted Robinson needs to be banned from commentating. I thought I could listen to him in small doses but now I've heard too much.

the notion that the '04 French was a fluke?

the fact that Gaudio is almost nowhere to be found now?

the fact Gaudio's success has been on clay?

not my reasons, but possibly what Robinson might think. It was just a stupid thing to say. Glad McEnroe called him on it.

Re: Did I hear Ted Robinson right (Re: Gaudio) ?

ted has been so annoying this entire match. Insinuating that he was faking the pain in his leg and then that comment about the french open. ugh...stfu already.

did anyone else feel weird about the things that john is saying too tho? Calling fabrice 'crafty' and 'tricky'? I mean, maybe i'm just thinking about it too much.

agreed. McEnroe even called Santoro's 2nd serve ace a trick. If Santoro excels at ANYTHING at this point in the match, he's automatically faking. ridiculous.

The guy is a first class MORON. Nothing more needs to be said on this issue.

Everyone calls Santoro stuff like that though, just to describe his style of play. But I wasn't paying attention so I don't know how he meant it.
