I think it's safe to say Bradnam is the ultimate douche. Bradnam and Felgate are by far the most annoying team around. It's just awful. And he's no better with Jo Durie or Sam Smith. There's no chemistry at all. But is Bradnam the leading man nowadays on Eurosport? Every bloody time I turn Eurosport on, I hear this dork laughing and laughing. And he commentates Grand Slam finals!?

Re: Commentary at its finest

Chris Bradnam just keeps on giving. Last week I shook my head and laughed when he talked about Maria Kirilenko's boyfriend Alex Ovechkin. According to Bradnam he plays for the Washington Castles! Today during the New Haven finals he said it again. Yes, Bradnam is British and so on, but c'mon, Washington Castles!?

Elise Burgin man she is like chewing well done steak with no teeth.

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".

Re: Commentary at its finest

During the Spain vs. Argentina Davis Cup final, Justin Gimmelstob repeatedly mispronounced the Spanish word for Spain. I wanted to reach in and choke him-and I'm not even Spanish.

Re: Commentary at its finest

Sam Smith on Sky Sports: "Rufin is like a giant octopus."
"Tipsarevic is just having one of those days, I've got a good phrase for it actually which I pinched from someone else. It's like a day where you take out the roast chicken and put it in the freezer, and you pick up the ice cream and put it in the oven. The right hand doesn't know what the left is doing, and the chicken and ice cream are all over the place."

I don't remember her being this bad at commentary. I'm having to periodically switch over to Eurosport just to get a break from how embarassing she is.

Goodall is so boring when he works for Eurosport. they shouldn't give him night matches when people in Europe already sleep on half. Koenig misses him big time

Sam Smith has always been embarrassingly bad, to me.

I remember the days where she used to froth at the mouth over Joachim Johansson and yet Sky would still assign her to all of his matches.

Re: Commentary at its finest

This one is from the OG Delpo-Fed match.

Chris Fowler is trying to explain to John McEnroe what twitter parody accounts are. Not an easy job.

Re: Commentary at its finest

Roger Rasheed said Djokovic was among the top 4 volleyers in men's tennis.

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".

What woeful commentary. She was awful during the Robson match yesterday as well. Robson's a talent, but you'd have thought she was the next Serena Williams the way she was going on.

Re: Commentary at its finest

Wally Masur about Fognini "He has never met a mirror that he hasn't liked".

Masur and Rasheed during the Fish and Simon match when both guys were screaming at their camps.

"At the change of ends, they will bring out the couches with their entourages. The French will be eating croissants and the Americans hamburgers".

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".
