Re: Commentary at its finest

Does anyone remember in which match it was that Gimelstob said, "Andy Murray is better than Rafael Nadal on every surface. He just doesn't know it yet."

It was a few years back, maybe 2008. I was talking about that the other day with someone and we had a good laugh.

If it was in 2007 he would have sounded a bit less ridiculous maybe, but if he said it in 2008 there's no way to justify that.

Re: Commentary at its finest

Some comedy gold from british Sky Sports guys:
-Remember that Davis Cup 2002 final where Mathieu blew that 2-0 lead?
- Yes, and probably still haven't recovered
- Well I heard he was seen leaving his hotel yesterday, 10 years later

Then after the moment in Almagro-Gasquet match where Gasquet wanted to challenge but Almagro convinced him not to(although Gasquet would've been right) and for whatever reason umpire started calling security on court:
- They start calling security on court, no idea why
- Chances are they think that Gasquet was robbed

Even as a huge Murray fan, I think it would be ridiculous at any point in their careers. I mean, even if it somehow looked feasible early on hards or grass, clay?


Anyway, I know it was pretty early in Gimelstob's commentating career, when he was popping out bold and asinine comments left and right to fill silence. Pretty sure it was '08.

Re: Commentary at its finest

Some idiot referred to Janko Tipsarevic as "Jankovic." He said, "So how is Jankovic doing?"

Re: Commentary at its finest

During Nadal - Tsonga:
Peter Fleming: "So who's the next one to win a slam outside of the top 4 do you think?"
Mark Petchey [completely serious]: "Fognini."

1 hour later, during Djokovic - Fognini when Fog is getting crushed:
Mark Petchey [asking Fleming]: "Do you think Fognini may reach the top 20 or top 15?"

Disgusting bandwagoner.

Petchey is a disgusting commentator, even though he's a Murray fan, I much prefer world feed.

Re: Commentary at its finest

I can't understand those who can tolerate Mark Petchey. His tone is almost as bad as his dialogue. Very obnoxious. Similar to that of Barry Cowan's.

Fleming is getting a little senile, but he's still far better than his colleagues. He and Leif are the old school duo who should be the main staple in the box.

Re: Commentary at its finest

one of the comms here (Jason Goodall I think) said Fognini has one of the finest struts in sport.
