I acknowledge ur point and I realize that PMac is DC captain. But that's still a conflict. Commentators shouldn't have conflicts. If hes interviewed as a supporter, cool, he should supprot his team members. However, if hes supposed to be a commentator, i'd like to NOT feel his personal bias so much.
I'm old enough to have felt the love in the US for Bjorn Borg, and Borgs popularity was a result of balanced media coverage. That doesnt exist anymore. Sadly. US tennis audiences miss out on a lot 'cos of distorted coverage, unfortunately.
just my opinion. :-)
