Re: Boris Becker is the GOAT commentator.

He said something hilarious on Roddick vs Lopez a little earlier, can't remember what it was though.

Re: Boris Becker is the GOAT commentator.

Wait, did he just say ''Brooklyn Decker'' out of nowhere without any reason ?

Re: Boris Becker is the GOAT commentator.

He came up with one of the funniest pieces of commentary ever earlier in this match:

(during a close Lopez service game, camera goes to Brooklyn Decker in the crowd)

Boris: And there we see Andy's lovely wife, Brooklyn...

(pause)

Boris (to Andrew Castle): Have you seen the swimsuit edition?

Castle: (tries to get attention back to the tennis, can't remember the exact line)

(Lopez serves, comes forward to volley, during the point Boris continues talking)

Boris: I know I have.

Re: Boris Becker is the GOAT commentator.

I think he comes across as stupid actually. Random blabbing. He butchers English, sorry. Talks during points. He's preferable to Castle but that's cos anyone is.

Best is McEnroe. Then Sam Smith.

Re: Boris Becker is the GOAT commentator.

Shame that he was being balanced out by Andrew Castle, who I'm pretty sure is a direct descendant of Hitler, if not a reincarnation of the man himself.

Re: Boris Becker is the GOAT commentator.

I love listening to Becker, Mcenroe and Henman. In that order.

Or, to anyone with a mic after I've watched a match commentated by Rusedski, as long as Greg isn't anywhere near the commentator booth.

Re: Boris Becker is the GOAT commentator.

(My 5 favorite commentators are Becker, Gilbert, Hingis, McEnroe, Cash, in no particular order)

Yeah Greg is a spaz. His accent is just harrowing.

Re: Boris Becker is the GOAT commentator.

(I don't like how Rusedski speaks rather fast and mumbles, it's difficult to appreciate anything he says)
