Re: Commentary at its finest

Mark Woodforde: Oh Mac that was a shit of a fucking last game..

Okay. He wasn't commentating. The microphones caught it after him and McNamara lost to Forget and Leconte in the legends doubles. He lost his serve

Re: Commentary at its finest

Bradnam has been outstanding! Such a pleasure to hear his witty and brilliant commentary during the RG final. Goodall and Koenig have nothing against this guy. It's about time he got to commentate a Slam final.

Have you noticed that Wilander and McMillan have been taking turns during the match? Everybody wants to commentate alongside Bradnam.

No.

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".

JMac thinks of Nadal to get hard for his wife.

Re: Commentary at its finest

John McEnroe says players like Nadal can play as slowly as they like and others should suck it up "out of respect for his achievements"

Wally Masur on Ivan Dodig. "He fights so hard and is at his career high ranking in the 30s". It's not hard to do some research he is in the 90s.

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".

Mike Tirico on Gulbis: great body, strong legs, terrific calves

Re: Commentary at its finest

why would somebody be paying Rusedski for his commentary services ? this guy is the worst combine of game opinions, failed humor attempts and forced laughing which you could imagine. I bet people watching BBC with volume off when he is in the office

He's appalling, Petchey's so much better.

Bjorn Borg:

French Open W (1974, 1975, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981)

Re: Commentary at its finest

Mark Petchey is appalling. Tennis commentators are a special breed, they're all pretty much the same. They all try to be funny, for whatever reason.

Can someone tell me the name of the Scottish guy commentating at Wimbledon on the BBC? I thought I'd have heard the last of him after last years championships, but the swine is back once again.

Re: Commentary at its finest

Rusedki horrific.

Watching the Bellucci nadal match and despite Bellucci missing almost everyone volley, he doesn't mention him, but praises rafa's increase in serving speed. It made no sense.
