Re: Mats Trollander is peaking yet again...

He is as bad as John Mcenroe in downplaying Nole and proping up fed

Mats Wilander, the 1982, ‘85, ‘88 champion, believes that if Djokovic were to hold all four major titles at the same time by lifting his first trophy on Parisian clay it would be equal to anything achieved in the sport’s history. “You’d have to put him straight up there with a [Bjorn] Borg, maybe Rafa [Nadal] too, just as an achievement. You couldn’t put him past Roger,” stated Wilander.

I love "Game, set and Mats" on Eurosport. In his defense: you're bound to say some stupid things when they give you 40 minutes time to talk about tennis every single day on camera.

This is pure gold.

He is alright during that show. It's the commentary that delivers these jewels.
I don't have anything against it really, since it's quite entertaining to me.

In comparison, Simon Reed is a flawless announcer/commentator yet when he gets to writing an editorial all hell breaks loose. It's part orchestrated, part hazard.

I think in Wilander's case it's just his personality and the fact that he talks as much as a woman.

Re: Mats Trollander is peaking yet again...

Reed: "Do these guys get nervous?"

Wilander: "I think Nadal does, that's because he really wants to have a chance to compete against these guys and have the opportunity to win the match"

It might've been just poor wording from Mats but it still made me chuckle.

Re: Mats Trollander is peaking yet again...

Mats in the women's semifinal's preview: "I actually tried getting in the women's locker room this morning but they wouldn't let me in..."

Annabelle quickly changed the subject after that. haha



You're a champ, Mats.

No more obscure than a German articulating in Americana slang.

Not all THBH shots are topspin drives now, are they? Legitimate opinion from Mats for once.

Just like Federer's one handed backhand is more of a block right? Similar to what Gooch delivers regularly on the forehand side on returns.

At 2:5 in the third set Mats was stil convinced that federer can come back. And yes, he was serious.

Do they comment together on Eurosport? Shame I can't hear that, sounds quite funny. Here inBelgium both Eurosport 1 and 2 are in Dutch.
