Re: Commentary at its best

On the Volandri vs Murray match this one was from Doug Adler.

Murray is the bus driver as he is taking Volandri to school.

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 best

During the Monaco and Federer match. Goodall was taking the piss out of Adler at the start of the match, when they were showing Monaco's coach Mastelli who played Adler once.

Adler was bitching about Mastelli and Goodall was saying "I will tell him, that you reckon he hooked you down in Salvador" and Adler was acting like he was really scared.

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 best

This one is funny, as for not what was said specifically, just more to the subject matter.

Doug Adler, he can't stand Gaudio, but he came out and said Gaudio's mental problems on court was a deliberate tactic to put the opponent off and gamesmanship. Funny thing is he didn't make any mention of his opponents antics at all, especially when that guy is Djokovic.

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 best

Yesterday on Eurosport during Nadal's match:
ES commentator: "if you have not heard Guillaume Raoux for a while it's because he's trying to fix his head set. He is McGyver!"


On France Televisons, Forget compared Del Potro to Safin after a BH winner. I think he still is under the DC trauma, he sees him everywhere.

Re: Commentary at its best

Ok, not men's tennis, but nevermind.

Frew McMillan just now commentating (Eurosport) on the Paszek match..."I always prefer it when they have their tops off."

Don't we all, Frew, don't we all?

It depends I mean Kuznetsova, Paszek, Mandula they had some lung capacity, but Henin?

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".

There's a reason I said the Paszek match, rather than the Henin match.

Paszek has a dickhead father as well, seems to be a pre-requisite for the womens tour.

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 best

Our former tennis commentator (and former DC captain) Jean-Paul Loth was invited on TV this morning: "We should start a petition to make Sharapova stop shrieking. It's unbearable!"


I miss him. He was our best commentator.

Ha ha, I assume that wasn't after one of the two or three terrible volleys he always misses per match?

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

That sounds like a fantastic idea.

Re: Commentary at its best

During the Hewitt and Gaudio match.

Dave Basheer a local commentator said that Gaudio was working with Franco Davin and Fernando Aguirre, but Aguirre hasn't been with them since the start of the year and it was Jaite that they showed on screen and who has been with him for the clay season.

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 best

Wally Masur on Igor Andreev's touch around the net. "He has the touch of a bricklayer".

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".
