Bud at it again

during one of the matches today he said something like "French Open is the only grand slam where the umpire just says the score in native language and not in native and english like rest of the slams"

oh really bud.
what is the native language in UK, USA and Australia?

Re: Bud at it again

Bud needs to retire. It's so painful when he gets to interview the players oncourt after the match. He's so slow and awkward with the questions and you can see the look of impatience on the players' faces having to wait while Bud's senile brain struggles to formulate a coherent inquiry.

Bud Collins is unquestionably one of a kind.

Who needs accuracy when you have LOUD PANTS?

Re: Bud at it again

I guess, after 10 posts, I'll be the one to point out that he didn't exactly say that. He said that it's the only tournament not to call the score in English at all. (I'd be surprised if it were true.) He mentioned "They think just French is good enough."

Re: Bud at it again

What would tennis be without the insight of Bud Collins! I remember during the Federer Tipsarevic marathon down under, he said something really stupid (in the fifth set when the match was really intense)like Tipsarevic has changed to a black shirt. The last time Federer lost to an opponent, he was wearing black. Could this be a curse?
I mean come on Bud. I think one has to be over 80 or under 10 to find him entertaining. To me, he's plain annoying!
