Angry I take it all back with regard to terrible commentator. Read post 24 in this thread.

I'm now watching Roddick vs Wang and the stupid commentator keeps talking about his serves how fast it is and how slow Wang's is compared to his...etc...

Stop it! it's not as if he uses his serves to win all the points... the game of tennis is all about breaking serve too!!! He must have some skills of returning and good shots rite? or why does he win match????

Get with it and discuss more on the whole match and not just the serve...

Don't be deceived by the rankings!! Coria, Roddick, Mirnyi, Schuettler, Fish, Safin, Henman, Tursunov, Ljubicic, Bovina, Li Na, Ivanovic, Chan YJ, Dementieva, Vinci, Sugiyama, Coetzer, Tanasugarn, Vaidisova, Zheng, Dokic and Kournikova are the world's best tennis players in the world!!!

A fast serve helps, but against good returners, you need more than that too.Also, you need to break the other.It is a nice weapon to have though.

Re: What's wrong with commentators??? Why do they keep saying about Roddick's serves????

I know it's a bit harsh on me to scold them...but really...how many times do they need to mention that he holds the fastest serve?? If having the fastest serves helps, then he better win all the title for the whole year!

Stupid people!!! they obviously dun do their homework too...there was another match bet Sveta Kuznetsova vs Razzano and they were like "wow, she's so good...why is she ranked 100++?"

for goodness sake, she was injured and did not play for a long time... what do they expect? the points are retained? the ranking may be protected for seeding purposes but the points still fall off!!!

Razzano was 50++ and climbing before she was injured!!

Stupid people!!! Stupid people!!!!!

By the way, Razzano won.

Don't be deceived by the rankings!! Coria, Roddick, Mirnyi, Schuettler, Fish, Safin, Henman, Tursunov, Ljubicic, Bovina, Li Na, Ivanovic, Chan YJ, Dementieva, Vinci, Sugiyama, Coetzer, Tanasugarn, Vaidisova, Zheng, Dokic and Kournikova are the world's best tennis players in the world!!!

At least you get to see that match AND the commentator doesn´t continuely make comments about Sharapova´s hot look and screaming...love a 50 year old guy drooling over a kid!

Well you know that the return winner and backhand down the line and all that stuff... so what what the commentators say. But it's his main weapon, so they're gonna talk about it. When Coria's on court they talk about his speed, when Tim is on court they talk about his volleying... no difference

yes... but they could focus more on their other aspects of their games... it's not like we don't know what are the various players' strength...

I'm just easily irritable today...sorry guys...

I don't know where you're watching, but in the US they've been very careful to mention how much work he's done with his volleys, backhand, and return. When he hits a good backhand or serve-volleys or whatever they always make the comment like "he and Brad have been working hard on this" or whatever. I suppose it's different because the US commentators know him more closely but nah I don't think it's that big a deal. I understand being easily irritable though, we all have our days

In US, the commentators have to say things other than Roddick's serve, otherwise, how are they going to fill up that 15 minutes (and numerous occasions during coverage) talking about Roddick BEFORE his match starts.

And Buddy, sorry you feel so irritable today blame the weather.
