Actually I found it very funny. Ridiculous type of funny, of course, but still funny. He come up with pretty new crazy rules in this last 2 days.

"When the ball hit more than half line, a player should lose 2 challenges"

"When the ball hits the top of the net, that player shouldn't be allowed to win the point".

And other stiff that I can't remember right now...

Re: Chris Bradnam

Wilander was unbearable today.
How did this utter clown ever win slams? He's worse than McEnroe. Says one thing, then contradicts it within the next point.
Quite often contradicts himself within one sentence which is priceless.

I nearly shed a tear when he declared Llodra the best volleyer of all time.

Bradnam and Reed are awful too, especially when Murray is playing, but Wilander resides on planet Batshit Insane.

Re: Chris Bradnam

Wilander is fking hilarious! The stuff he comes out with is comical. The man's a complete lunatic.

I do wonder how people who have won major titles can have such an odd reading of the modern game. Anyone in the UK who has seen Sue Barker (French Open champion) present tennis coverage will know what I'm talking about.

And Chris Bradnam? Well, isn't he FABULOUS

Re: Chris Bradnam

Bradnam is awful, especially sickening when Murray is playing e.g when Nadal beat Murray in the French semi final and went out to the middle of the court to celebrate, Bradnam went on and on saying 'look at how much it means to beat Andy Murray, so much emotion from Nadal because he knows he has just played and beaten AAAAAAAAndy Murray' etc

Jason Goodall must cry into his coffee at being a second-stringer behind this bunch of muppets.

Frew McMillan is good, the rest are mostly poor I must say.

Re: Chris Bradnam

the combination of bradnam and wilander for the fedal match was more than i could take. matts spouting any shit that came into his head and doing it while constantly talking all over the points and match. then bradnam was his usual fawning 'yes man' role of forever agreeing with a matts (who's clearly on crack) and treating tennis players like gods.

I actually used to take Wilander seriously . I'm ashamed and will repent for that sin . Just because you were a great player it does not mean you will be a top commentator. You are right about Wilander, he talks too much.

Re: Chris Bradnam

Bradnam is pretty embarrassing. I don't get the Eurosport team. Why is Bradnam considered one of the best there? Ok, I can understand Reed, but why Bradnam. What the hell is David Mercer doing? He just announces who's gonna commentate? They have also used Chris Bowers during all these years, he's actually quite good. Have the producers mixed them up?

-Chris Bowers? I think you meant Chris Bradnam?
-I'm not sure, it was Chris B something. I guess your right, it's Bradnam.

Also, I can't stand it when Bradnam whispers "yeah" about 100 during one match.

Reed isn't that bad. He's got a good sense of humour and has a good chemistry with Jo Durie.

Re: Chris Bradnam

Jo Durie and Frew McMillan are the only ones that don't make me throw up.

My favourite is when Bradnam (in his effort to appear smart by calling things early) shouts "OOH, he's MADE it!" only for the ball to land out, and the epic back-pedalling to commence.

Re: Chris Bradnam

So sick of when Bradnam replies to comments with like a whisper of "Yessss!"

Agreed with Jo and Frew being the best commentators there too, both of them have all my respect.

Plus the Bradnam over-exuberant exclamations of "WOW" and "OUCH" and the classic "HE'S CHALLENGING HE'S CHALLENGING"

"HA-HAHAHA-HA-HAHA-HA"

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.
