Re: Commentary at its best

In Britain we got Mark Petchey AND Barry Cowan. Very, very bad when they get to commentate together with no adult in the booth. Their attempt to fill before the match started was painful. The first set wasn't too bad because they were shocked into silence, but after that it was the usual full-on Fed Gushing.

this has prevented me from enjoying a lot of Roger's matches.

i still don't think anyone can beat Cliff D. at fed-gushing. the guy talks about Federer even during women's matches.

Ditto, Robinson is a hot mess...just brutal. I hope he gets run over on his way home.

I still don't see anyone beating cliff drysdale's Fed-gushing.

back in the day, the Agassi-gushers would stand a chance, but those days are long gone.

Re: Commentary at its best

Ted Robinson is the worst. Every word he says sounds like he is trying to sound out a difficult word on a paper while at the same saying it in a tone of complete astonishment.

"ROger FEDerER has been to 9 slam FINALS...IN A ROW!!!!!"

:retard:

He's said that stat at least a trillion times since Canada

My younger brother pulled a joke on me the other day, he was like "hey Jonathan, guess what came in the mail for you?" And I was kind of excited, "what is it?" then he said "Naked pictures of Roger Federer."

I do talk about him a lot....

Lucky I don't have to.

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

Ted is bad. I think he is the worst. But the most put me to sleep is Dick, and all his perving over Sharapova and Ivanovic. He spent 2 minutes doing those stupid "she has a beautiful game and is just as beautiful on the eyes" transition every match. And then he said he mistook her Open picture for Rita Hayworth (let Rita RIP please)... and the next day, they even brought in a split screen, a fucking split screen to compare the face of Ivanovic's USO profile pic to a Rita Hayworth glamour shot by Hurrell

With each passing season, I discover new reason
SAMPRAS --> Rios --> KUERTEN --> Kafelnikov -->
Federer --> Hewitt --> RODDICK --> GONZALEZ -->
NALBANDIAN --> Benneteau --> Davydenko --> Mathieu -->
TURSUNOV --> Mantilla --> KIEFER --> NADAL -->
Karlovic --> Odesnik --> Stepanek --> Monfils -->
??


Oliver Cromwell lay buried and dead. Hee-haw. Buried and dead.

Your name is Jonathan too?

Ted Robinson makes Pmac look like an analytical genius

I think the only reason they keep him on is so that Pmac can have confidence, knowing he sounds smart relative to Teddy

Re: Commentary at its best

Polsat Sport, polish sport TV (surprised, eh?) has a funny commentator named Tomasz Lorek. It's probable he's mentioned already, but this guy is a legend. Some examples of his fine commentary art:

* During Ljubicic-Almagro match at last year's AMS Canada he told the whole biography of Ljubo, including running away from bombs, trying to cross the border and not to get shot, practising in Italy in tennis academy and so on. He even mentioned that Ljubo and his wife like and make vodka from pears. Of course he didn't say anything about what was happening during the match

* During a last year's YEC he bragged about Shanghai's club of assasins called the Green Band, which members used to kill people in 19th century

* All the time he's calling Davydenko Day-wouu (nobody know's why)

* During this year's Safarova's Wimbledon match he was referring to the thing that Lucie is an Aquarius ALL THE TIME

Top comedy stuff

Re: Commentary at its best

I can't stand Dick Edberg, he seems like he needs to talk all the time.
