Brilliant.

Cilic choked hard on that match. To think he could've prevented what was to happen in the next days....

Re: Commentary at its finest

After Stepanek beat Gasquet. He blows a kiss to the camera.

Goodall : That kiss was for you.
Koenig : All flustered, I hope not. Please save it for Nicole.

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

Goodall calling Djokovic "Stepanek" after he ghosted into the net to win a point against Berdych.

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

After a lot of delaying where Federer wanted to stop as he was in a difficult position and gets away with it.

Koenig comes out with the call "Someone call 911 both men have escaped" after a very long point.

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

How often does Jason Goodall say "inch perfect"?

This isn't really commentary, but it's too good to let go to waste. Maybe a seperate thread should be started.

http://www.atpworldtour.com/News/Ten...-1-Battle.aspx

from the facebook comments "In Australia he will not defend any points because he won the title in 2011 and those points were defended in 2012, now he will only gain points on 2013!!!"

Great find Burrow.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Re: Commentary at its finest

Gilles Müller was called Gilles Murray by the commentator in Vienna.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Re: Commentary at its finest

During a Tennis Channel broadcast of the 2003 U.S. Open final between Andy Roddick and Juan Carlos Ferrero, one of the commentators said, "Andy Roddick should cram it down his (Juan Carlos') throat." Disgusting!

Re: Commentary at its finest

"Inch perfect" is another one of those overused, annoying phrases used by commentators. Others include: initially, outrageous, unreal, and jaw dropping.

Don't forget Vijay Amritaj's "remarkable" and "glorious"

Re: Commentary at its finest

Dutch commentator at the Hewitt-Almagro match kept repeating that Berankis had taken place in the Hewitt box to "learn from the old master", after just losing to Baghdatis.





It was Luczak....

Mind you, we had just (like 10 mins before this match) watched Berankis play, and it had the same commentator
