Re: Commentary at its best

I think that's rather sad, personally. If these are the kind of uninformed people broadcasting tennis to the masses.... little wonder the game is in such a parlous state.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

You can't fool me Sjengster, I know that you are a member of the media

I just can't figure out which one you are -- tennis commentator or journalist. I will get to the bottom of this.

Well I'd like some of his hot cream...

Re: Commentary at its best

I didn't like Mary Carillo during the Gonzo - Nadal match. How many times are you gonna mention that Fernando used to just swing away at anything, didn't play with his head? Didn't come out with a game plan? That you didn't enjoy watching him play? Just say he was stupid. She practically said everything but that. And every fucking two seconds

I understand making a point to how much Fena has developped. But every second, must you make him out to be a recovering caveman, a former neanderthal or something? Get off it. I couldn't even enjoy the match. She was so tasteless

With each passing season, I discover new reason
SAMPRAS --> Rios --> KUERTEN --> Kafelnikov -->
Federer --> Hewitt --> RODDICK --> GONZALEZ -->
NALBANDIAN --> Benneteau --> Davydenko --> Mathieu -->
TURSUNOV --> Mantilla --> KIEFER --> NADAL -->
Karlovic --> Odesnik --> Stepanek --> Monfils -->
??

Peter Bodo is studying History? ACK! I mean, Matt Cronin... I mean worthless Wertheim. Although he would be Worthy Wortheim if he masqueraded as Sjengstah. I'll get you one of these days...

Re: Commentary at its best

Have you heard me refer to Tom Berdych or Arnie Clement yet?

Re: Commentary at its best

You'd be shocked to know what I'm wearing below my waist at the moment, I must admit.

Re: Commentary at its best

Another classic from Frew McMillan on Davydenko:

"He's like a brick wall. Wait, that's not fair, he's much prettier than that. If he is a brick wall then he's a brick wall with a jolly nice mural painted on it"

I'm sure he'll be pleased to hear it

“I love tennis with a passion. I challenged Boris Becker to a match once and he said he was up for it but he never called back. I bet I could make him run around.”

Hahahaha

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".
