Re: Commentary at its finest

Some british commentator kept calling Tipsarevic "Tipsavic". He kept saying it every few seconds too. It was annoying.

Re: Commentary at its finest

Sky analyst just commented that Roger is playing better than he did in 2007 and that the level of competition is much higher now

He really should join MTF. Would fit in with all the other GM tards.

Re: Commentary at its finest

Portuguese comm thought that just because this was Roger's 1st televised match here in Portugal it was the 1st round.

In the beginning he said it was Roger's debut. Then in the end said the public was relieved because they wouldn't want the home boy to lose in the 1st round.

The portuguese comms are so stupid. There is this one female comm that is so pro nadal and and anti Roger it makes me wanna puke. It's sickening. I always turn on mute when she is commentating.

That is the typical British idiot. I bet it was Andrew Castle.

Re: Commentary at its finest

Apropos of the music playing during the Bellucci-Federer warmup, the commentator segues into his introduction of Federer by likening him to Bob Dylan: both old men on their "never-ending tours". He riffed on this Fed = Dylan idea for a good while.

I don't think this was the same guy who utters that cringeworthy "poetry in motion" remark every other time Fed unleashes a winner against some hapless opponent (that one came up in the Paire match a lot).

I wonder how old he must become until they DO admit that he has declined. At this rate he'll retire before that happens. I mean I understand they must promote the sport to some extent but surely there has to be a limit. Casual tennis fans believe these morons.

Re: Commentary at its finest

Koenig on Llodra's reflexes "like a mongoose on amphetamines".

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".

The tennistv commentator (not one of the usual ones) said in Andy Murray's match against Janowicz that it was Andy's first match since the Shanghai final. He didn't even have the excuse that his first match, against Mathieu the day before, had not been shown - it had.

Re: Commentary at its finest

The guy from tennistv who i usually like said that Ferrer was the first Spaniard in the final of Bercy since 1986, he probably forgot that Rafa made it as well in 2007 before losing to Super Dave

9!!!!!!!

Rafael Nadal Perera, the best there was, there best there is and the best there will ever be
14 Grand Slams while he was plagued with injuries is remarkable and he isn't done just yet
Mad respect for the most beautiful player I've ever seen, Roger Federer
People talking about Nole winning 4 in a row and Rafa/Roger not being able to. Peak Nadal and Federer would have won multiple CYGS against this field

To be fair, he didn't think of it off the top of his head but agreed with the choice when prompted.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Re: Commentary at its finest

For a so called expert, I'd have expected him to think of Kafelnikov without needing reminding. Typical Barry Cowan and his short term memory.

Re: Commentary at its finest

Just wanted to point out Cowan's statement. But again after Koenig and Goodall, Cowan and Petch are my favorite duo to listen
