Perhaps the worst commentator ever!
Talking during points is horrendous: "Good serve out wide. Nice forehand. Going cross court, etc"
Could you shut the **** up, already?! We're not blind, you know.

It's Barry MacKay. Yes, he's awful and beyond annoying with the captain obvious remarks ("it's a let!" "it's good!"). He commentated for the first half of the Hewitt-Nadal match before he was thankfully relieved of duties.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Commentary at its best

Elise Burgin calling Söderling's forehand a crude weapon.

Tangy, thanks for that clarification I know this cat, but has been so long since I heard him.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Commentary at its best

Guillame Raoux about Sharapova. "Why is she screeching, is she pain when she hits the ball or what".

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Commentary at its best

During the Nadal/Hewitt match....Darren Cahill said that he wants to see a player go over and kick Nadal's water bottles over one time.

I think so. :retard:

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

Re: Commentary at its best

Not really commentary as such but similar.

Eurosport advert for game set and mats during change overs in matches.

"Mats Wilander gives his unique view on *not sure, mens tennis or french open or something*"

Then it cuts to him saying "Nadal and Federer uh.. eh Unbelievable rivarly"

Unbelievably unique view

Re: Commentary at its best

Ted Robinson on my TV screen, what a treat

He is by far the worst commentator of all time. In any sport.

Re: Commentary at its best

Robinson : Losing to Federer is embarrassing to your life.
Carillo : No one's classier than Federer.
McEnroe: No one hits angles, except for Federer.

Re: Commentary at its best

Wally Masur on Cibulkova. "They say she is 5 foot 3, what! is that in stilettos".

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
