Tennis commentators don't set very high standards, they don't talk enough about technique, strategy and the dynamics of the match itself and I don't think this guy is any different. His calling of the score and collection of clichés just makes me want to mute him but I can't stand not hearing the ball and surroundings.
I don't know how he's managed to obtain a stable seat in the BBC booth, looking at his qualifications, but he's done well for himself.
Exactly what I think of him too. Just inane, they're all at it and talking through points. I don't care about Mr Williams beard Virginia, I don't need someone to say ace when I can see it on TV, I don't need someone to say Andy won that game, I know, I can also see what the score it so why tell me, it says match point on screen so why the bloody hell are you telling me it's match point. They just state the aboslute bleedin obvious.
And they're being really gushy about British players.
