Steven Martens (old Belgium Davis cup coach) and a co-commentator on sporza, belgium tv.
They were discussing the AO draw, more in particular the 1st round Moya-Blake.
-"Not an easy 1st round for Blake, Steven"
*"Definitely not, Mark, i believe Moya once reached the final of the Australian open in his younger days, did he not?"
- "Yes, he did"
* "He lost to Agassi if remember correct. How long has it been, 5 years or so, 2001 something like that. It was in the same year as he got to number 1"
- "I looked it up, Steven. It wasn't in 2001, it was in 1997, 10 years ago"
* "1997!? That long ago? It feels like yesterday, Mark"
What they failed to find, Moya didn't lost to Agassi, he lost to Sampras and he got to number in 99.
Discusting, this Martens guy, is now working for the British lawn tennis association, making big bucks. Trying to help British tennis. I just can't stand that guy. When you here him talk, you get the feeling he knows nothing of tennis, and i'm not only talking about the history of the game.
Sabine Appelmans, Els Callens and Carl Maes are even worse, though.
Dutch Eurosport commentator when the roof of the Rod Laver Arena is getting closed:
" Of course they have taken this system from the Amsterdam Arena. That's why it's called "arena"... You commentator is just losing himself here."
