Which currrent or recently retired player would make the best tennis commentator?
This could be quite interesting. Inevatibly a lot of pro players decide to become commenators after their careers, and I am sure todays crop of players will be no exception in the future.
Obviously no ones going to agree with only 10 poll choices, but I will try my best.
1. Marat Safin. The guy had a very explosive personality on court. Very talented. He could bring a lot to the table, but his English would need to improve. Question mark over his knowledge over the technical aspects of the game.
2. Roger Federer. The greatest player of all time. He wouldn't need the money, but he could do pretty well at it. I somehow can't imagine it though.
3. Nafeala Nutella. His English would need to improve, no? But he is quite a character and a nice individual, I can imagine him doing okay. He could also of course commentate in Spannish.
4. Shandi Dick Rod. A pathetic 1 SHAM BLUNDER on the court, but I could imagine him saying quite a few funny things from time to time. Good impact commentator, but wouldn't want him for the grand sham finals.
5. Joe Wilfried Ponga. His personality and flare could translate into commentary. Probably more at MS level than slam level though.
6. Hard on Hugh Witt. Hard to imagine, but the come on after winners from the commentary box might get him a job at 7 sport in Aussie.
7. David Nalbandian. People will always want to know what the GOAT thinks about everything, the most famous player on MTF must be included.
8. Flamed Flake.
9. Andrew Mug gay bo. It will be so embarrasing when he ends his 10 year career and his brother Jamie has a grand slam title and he doesn't. Still, maybe the two could pair up in commentary, the Mugay brothers, and win something there?
10. Bommy Farce. The German knows how to stuff everything up on court, so he should be able to describe everything perfectly when the next generation of chokers do the same.
Actually, after ready this, have come to the conclusion that no one on the tour would do a good job. But what does MTF think?
"I did not play my best tennis, no? And..that is what enable him to win..to win this match no? "
