Re: Commentary at its best
The BBC are challenging Eurosport for worst commentary team.
Bailey and Lloyd are astounded that Verdasco is hitting more winners than Nadal. They can't seem to get over it, seemingly not realising that Nadal's game is about cutting out errors, remaining solid, and taking very few risk. Consequently, his opponents almost always hit more winners. The fact that Verdasco hits the ball harder than Nadal is shocking to them.
Similarly, they are gobsmacked that Verdasco is putting up a fight. Bailey literally suggested that everyone thought Nadal would roll Verdasco in 3 sets. This is despite the fact that Fernando beat Murray and Tsonga (easily in Tsonga's case), both of whom are better hard court players than Nadal. Utterly clueless ****s. They can't seem to distinguish between Rafa being invincible on clay and Rafa being merely a good hard court player.
