Re: Commentary at its best

Betfair commentator upon glancing at Mrs. Fish ring.

"Goodness, that's a sparkler right there, half of his prize winnings went toward that. Congratulation to the happy couple."

And after Mardy argued a line call: "Angelina Jolie look-alike, doesn't look impressed by the umpiring"

Re: Commentary at its best

During the Djokovic-Hanescu match, Hanescu attempted a rather pointless between the legs shot.
Goodall: That was just for the ladies.

And then Hanescu called the trainer pretty much right after.
Goodall: I think it happened when he attempted this nonsense (shows clip of between the legs shot.)

Re: Commentary at its best

Robbie koening after an epic rally in the 10th game of the first set federer - tsonga "Brilliant FROM THE WORLD NUMBER 1!!!!!!!!!!"

Funny thing was i was just thinking that commentators must have to get used to classing him as the world number 2 and then he rattles off that.

Roddick was in the crowd watching Fish
Goodall: Is there a bromance in the making here, Chris?

They showed Fish's new wife in the crowd.

Yep, they have the same commentary on bet365 and betfair. It's not a radio commentary, we can see if its BH or FH. In the Fed-Tsonga match he even got mixed up in those kind of comments - Federer FH, Tsonga volley, with Jo actually trying a BH cross way out of any volley zone
