Re: Commentary at its best

In one of Jelena Dokic's matches an Australian commentator from Sky Sports 2 said about the crowd's support of Jelena: "They're riding her... They're riding her hard"

Re: Commentary at its best

Regarding the Chris Fowler herpes quote, the greatest thing was the look on Bud Collins face. He was like "WTF did he just say?" Fowler putting Bud Collins at a loss for words.

Re: Commentary at its best

ES commentators about Federer during the match against Roddick:

- ...he has the ability to send his opponent hither and thither
- There would be no jams if Federer was a traffic cop.

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.

I enjoyed Bailey's discussion about Verdasco's shaved legs. Insightful.

Whoa, you are not on the list of people who get to touch my tits

Yes, very relevant to what was happening on court.
