Re: Commentary at its finest

Gimelstob needs to stop comparing tennis to other sports. Nadal missed a sitter the other day "That's like missing a layup if your Kobe Bryant or missing a 2 foot putt if your Freddy Couples".

"Isner is like Kevin Garnett, a hybrid that is the first of his kind".

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Commentary at its finest

Talking of Gimelstob, I was watching the ATP World Tour uncovered program this week, and he did an interview with Michael Berrer.

They could definitely pass as twin brothers.

No, and why are you? Why you would listen to her commentating is beyond me. I am listening to a Russian feed and it is great for me

Re: Nicolas Lapenttay

I like Lindsay's commentary...but she really sounds like a true California valley girl by pronouncing it Lapenttay

Re: Nicolas Lapenttay

This is truly hilarious. Does she have no idea how to pronounce Spanish? She might want to give it a try, not only is it a beautiful and learnable language, but it could come in handy in some areas of LA

Re: Nicolas Lapenttay

In Italian and Spanish the "i" is not ever pronounced as "ay" (cannot think of any times that it would be pronounces as "ay" in English either for that matter)

After you posted that I started paying better attention and both Lindsay and Justin were going back and forth between LapentEEE and LapentAY. I don't think they even realized they were doing it.


Pretty sure Lindsay was born and raised along the coast, she may not like the 'valley girl' label.

same as Greek.

pi, for instance, the transcendental number (≈3.14) - represented by the Greek letter π - that expresses the ratio of the circumference to the diameter of a circle is not pronounced as “pie”. it is pronounced as “pee”.

if i’m not mistaken, fraternities and sororities use capital Greek letters. needless to say, you are the Φ. as the letter Φ should be pronounced, at least.

also, the golden ratio (≈1.618) – not rarely encountered in geometry, architecture and music - is represented by the Greek letter Φ, usually the lower case (φ) though.

you’re a multifunctional maxim, Fee, and you don't look like you're trying too hard.

Huh? I was never in a sorority, didn't pay too much attention to them, have no idea what you're talking about at all. Must be an inside joke.

Re: Commentary at its finest

Konig and Adler at it again.

In the Gonzo/Monaco match there was a long rally, which Gonzo won and almost hid Monaco on the head at the net.

Konig: "Monaco isn't going like that, he could have headed that ball over at the net, though he is an Argentine just as likely to use his hand".

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".
