Repeated commentary for players

Commentators mention the same things about players in most matches they are in. What are some things you're likely to hear from the commentators in a certain player's matches?

David Ferrer
1 "a long way from the top 4"
2 "one of the hardest workers on tour"
3 "extended length racquet"
4 "the number two Spaniard behind Rafa Nadal"

Re: Repeated commentary for players

nadal
"great hands at the net" (for what exactly- making easy putaways makes him suddenly good at the net???)

"if it goes to 5 vs nole you have to say nadal is huge fave"
(happened at the wimby and us open finals- i wanted to call bullshit then but the ao final proved my point nicely- nadal would choke is nole didnt)

"is this going to be his year?" (every british commentaor when murray plays, every single match, even a round 1 match at a 250 tourney and theya sk this Q)

"best tennis era we have ever witnessed"(usually said during a nole or nadal match- without a hint of sarcasm aswell- i mean, was 1995 really that long ago???)

"federer really is a complete player"
(umm, no, he hasn't been since 2002 when he forgot how to volley, before that he was one of the best volley prospects in tennis- and he threw it away because of those darn slow courts)

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

Re: Repeated commentary for players

Raonic: "the big Canadian".
They are talking as if he's a 6'9 freak and reality he's 6'5 which is quite common on the tour.

any endless rally in a Djokovic vs Nadal match: "best point ever"

Re: Repeated commentary for players

for Soderling:

"Look at the power in that forehand/backhand/serve"
"Listen to the sound when the racket hits the ball"
"The only man to have defeated Nadal on the clay of RG"
"blahblahblah Magnus Norman"
"he puts the towel over his head to concentrate"
"blahblahblah *crazy parallell to swedish legend* "Will he be the next swedish slam winner?"


If he makes a comeback I'm sure commentators will mention the mono sickness every chance they get

Monfils: 'entertaining' 'exciting to watch'
(translation: throws himself about on court all the time like a genuine clown)

"It's getting colder, I'm getting colder, older, it's getting colder...

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"
