Re: Commentary at its best

"Federer has won 21 out of his last 22 matches here in Marat."
--Cliff Drysdale, telling us just how dominant Fed has been.
No, I'm not making that up. He was quick to switch to "melbourne" but we all know what he meant. and freudian slip anyone?

It's just you don't want to have a lot of expectations, because when you start to have a lot of expectations you just end up losing in the third round to God knows who. ~Marat Safin, summarizing his career

No comment:
Mawie: he kinda reminds me of me, he feels obligated to have every sentence be a joke
Maggie Tulliver: and he takes his clothes off when he sees a camera
Maggie Tulliver: it's a little pathetic
Maggie Tulliver: it's like his first reaction

"There should be an official rule in the matches against Agassi: no short balls against him, a little respect to the old man, please!"


"Welcome to the home of Youzhny, a home built from double faults"

"Baghdatis will appreciate meter and a half longer court, the real one appears to be too short for him'

"Now back to the Blake’s match, where the things are quite interesting, even criminal"


In Bulgarian they sound a lot better, but I think you can catch the spirit


just for the record - Jordan Bojinov is the best ever!
I will try to post some new stuff from him after AO 2007

Re: Commentary at its best

At Wimbledon around '86 or '87 Bud Collins was interviewing the winning mixed doubles team of Ken Flach and his partner (can't remember who it was). They were discussing mixed doubles strategy and Flach was saying that when in doubt go at the woman. Bud Collins then innocently asked Flach "Is that the goal: to NAIL the woman?". Flach looked at him and said "Uh, you wanna rephrase that, Bud?" and cracked up. Bud had no clue what was going on.

Re: Commentary at its best

^^^ perfect timing! Mine was posted first though

I think he was probably looking at the names of the two Americans in the draw that are possible SF opponents and got confused.

Re: Commentary at its best

During the Hewitt-Gonzalez match yesterday, the commentators were talking about what Hewitt could possibly do to get into the match.

John Alexander: 'what Lleyton needs is the doctor who injected Wayne Arthurs to inject Gonzalez'

Re: Commentary at its best

Armitraj was taken by the deep strong voice of the umpire of the Paes/Stosur-Allegro/Bovina mixed doubles match and couldn't stop talking about it.

- You really like his voice, don't you Vijay?
- It is absolutely amazing. He should give us a song. He is a baritone not allegro.

(Amritraj wanted to make a joke there since Allegro was playing but obviously he has zero knowledge about music )
