Chris Bradnam

There's obviously some threads about commentators, but I still have to make one for Chris Bradnam.

Never been a fan of this guy, but today was pure torture. For some reason I was watching the WTA tournament from Linz and Bradnam was commentating with some other guy. It was just awful. They were talking all the time and laughing about every single thing. It was actually quite awkward and embarrassing. You just feel like saying shut the f*** up!

Bradnam shouldn't be anywhere near a microphone. Thank God it's only WTA.

Re: Chris Bradnam

I am quite surprised that Leggy Dani hasn't taken out a restraining order on him by now, he's had an unhealthy fixation with her for just about a decade.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Yeah, he's a top drawer clown.

Re: Chris Bradnam

Gee, this Bradnam is so annoying. I was spending a lazy day at my couch watching some telly and every now and then I switched to Eurosport 2 and they were showing the exho from Adelaide. Bradnam and Felgate were in the booth and it was just utter shit. Here's pretty much how the commentary went:

-Good volley
-HAHHHHAAAHHHHAAAAHHHHAAAAAHHHHAAAAAA

-She's gonna keep him company
-HHAHHHAAAAHHHHAAAAHHHHAAAAHHHAAAAHHHAA
-HHAAHHHAAAHHHHAAAHHHHAAAHHHHAAAHHAHAHHAHAH

-Remember to bring the sun lotion to Melbourne
-HHAHHHAHAHAHAHHHAAAHHHAHHAHHAHHAAHHHHAAAHAHHAHHA

I mean what the hell is going on? It's like some kind of really, really rotten comedy sketch. Just awful. There must be hundreds of complaints from viewers.

Re: Chris Bradnam

the best commentator i've ever heard is javier frana. quiet but very insightful fella. as a former pro, the dude knows the game quite well both in its psychological as in technical aspects.

GOAT commentator, imo. shame that non-spanish speaking dudes can't hear his wisdom.

from the english speaking world, robbie koenig is kind of funny and some times insightful. not to the level of frana, but then again who is?

Re: Chris Bradnam

He's an annoying fella isn't he?

Would be great if he shut up, wouldn't it?
You'd like to have your sunscreen Down Under wouldn't you?
What an amazing opportunity to interview Roger Federer, isn't it?
HAHAHAHA, isn't it? wouldn't it? shouldn't it? couldn't it? fucking it? hfjhdas...

He's an amazingly annoying moron with some horrible verbal mannerisms. Comment the freaking match and stop talking like you're having a 5 o'clock tea at the local geriatric leisure spa, asshole.

Re: Chris Bradnam

Going to keep track of the retarded things this guy says. Will update this post.

1. Thinks Federer likes it better when Nadal hits with depth. Reasons that Federer likes playing half volleys from the baseline instead of taking on short balls.

Re: Chris Bradnam

Chris Bradnam, Mats Wilander and Simon Reed. That's Eurosport's "top team".


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

Re: Chris Bradnam

Mats Wilander has been the worst of the two the last few days.

Re: Chris Bradnam

I don't get Eurosport, so I've not had the pleasure of hearing Mr. Bradnam, but if he's as big of a tool as Jeff Tarango or Murph Jensen, I'll eat my shirt. They were tagteaming it on ESPN and put me in mind of Beavis and Butthead.

Quite agree, I like Koenig a lot. Cahill is really decent as well.
