Hewitt Match- Aussie Commentators should be fired

I am watching Hewitt vs Chela at the moment and i am about to shoot myself. Or go to Rod Laver and shoot John Alexander and Jim Courier. The absolutely pathetic reasons they have made to protect Lleyton have been hiliarious...surely people (regardless of how much you may or may not love hewitt) would see thru this?!!!

1) "The paint on the sidelines arent manufactured the same way as the paint on the baseline....its unfair for lleyton, he cant predict the speed at which the ball will come off the line" --> BLAMING THE PAINT?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

EDIT: I have been informed that i misquoted this...im sorry, i didnt mean to exagerate it but thats how i remembered it. Apparently "JA" was just saying that they need to invent paint that goes with the surface speed or something. No coincidence that it was after Hewitt missed the ball tho. Of course.

2) "It's so hard to adjust to taping on your ankle...poor lleyton" --> Its professional tennis....He'd be bloody used to it BY NOW

3) My personal favourite..."Chela knows that if he hits it back to Lleyton, it'd be gone for dead. That's the only reason he hit that clean winner"

And more...

4) At the start of the 3rd set, after Lleyton lost the first two...and imagine this in a sincerely excited tone: "lletyon wins FIVE straight points!!!"

5) Middle of the 4th..."He's hit one winner and 5 unforced errors. Look at that Hewitt domination"

6) "Hewitt must get the ball...in"

Bad rep me if you like, but surely you can see how ridiculous that is

Séb Grosjean ; Arnaud Clément ; Guillermo Coria; Marcos Baghdatis; Jo Jo Tsonga
Lleyton Hewitt and Andy Roddick are arrogant pigs

Yes well there's not much we can do about the commentators. To be fair on Courier it is mainly Alexander that comes out with such dribble.

Re: Hewitt Match- Aussie Commentators should be fired

-especially at the "Hewitt domination" comment. How does one dominate with one winner and five unforced errors?

Talk to the hand because the ears don't hear you.

It is hilarious. Maybe I should turn on AO radio to hear some more crap? I'll do that now.

Re: Hewitt Match- Aussie Commentators should be fired

Note this: Chela is two sets to one up and 5-2-and he's struggling, according to the comms. They are idiots.

Re: Hewitt Match- Aussie Commentators should be fired

I believed this type of comments were the exclusivity of french commentators but...well chauvinistics are everywhere, and they are used to bad faith..when you are patriotic yourself it doesn't bother but when your fav is facing the countryman it's much more annoying

Because sometimes, you just need the obvious to be stated.

Re: Hewitt Match- Aussie Commentators should be fired

Well...goodbye Hewitt. Congrats Chela. At least the AO radio comms are being complimentary toward Chela.
