I agree. I am going nearly crazy with the advertisements in the middle of points, the two or three points not seen because of commercials, the many, MANY Roddick montages, and the inane/hackneyed commentary. I am having to turn the volume way down sometimes. I used to like nearly everybody - JMac, Carillo, Courier, etc, but this much time with these people? I'm still sick of Courier from the Olympics! I am going crazy. This is my first time paying close attention to a Slam. How do you people do it?
So I don't know if it's the Barkan guy that's bad or that I am just sick of everybody at this point.
But back on topic, Tommy was the perfect gentleman, so good for him for handling a shitty situation rather well. And the 'who am I?' with Tommy was really cute, so maybe that makes up for it.
Oh, and the Roddick matches?
In some games, it was just Robredo walking back and forth at the baseline between aces. And I can't get into being excited about how fast he hits his serves, no matter how much they hype it. All of the week 1 five-setters and the Federer-Santoro match have been the most interesting for me so far.
/rant over, back to lurking
