Re: Commentary at its best

Wimbledon Radio in the 4th set.

Federer has a point for 4-1

- 4-1 looks a lot bigger than 3-1

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".

Carl Maes (Belgian Fed Cup captain): "One of the players Nadal has beaten in five sets after having lost the first two sets is Ljubicic. That was last year in Madrid, on clay of course"

Re: Commentary at its best

I've received positive feedback about commentary in my national media. Sadly, the most insane commentator became Nadia Petrova's coach (yes.)
Still during USO some things could be found:

- The second match is shown at the same time on Eurosport 2. If you don't have Eurosport 2, ask your provider why is that.
- Perhaps these people haven't paid and now whine.

- The American (Kendrick) looks different because of his trousers, while our player uhmmm I mean the Frenchman (Monfils) is dressed all in red.

- (match Mauresmo - Barrois) What do you think of Monfils' new hairstyle?
- (10 sec of silence) Uhmmm I don't have an opinion yet, but I'll be wondering till the end of the day and I'll tell you.

- There's such a saying "Luck goes in a favour of the better".
- But there's also another saying...!
- Which one?
- I don't remember.

- (about Nadal's shoes) Hahaha Vamos Rafa!
- He needs it to not to be misguided which shoe goes for which leg.

The one perving at nights about WTA players became Petrova's coach as I said. The other ones hmm... some are ex ATP and WTA players but they weren't very well known except of Wojciech Fibak who called Kubot "next Brad Pitt" or Magdalena Grzybowska. One of the commentators is 86 years old. There's also another so old guy but I don't know how old exactly. The 86-yeared old's son is also a commentator and a journalist for the national tennis magazine (eg. he can make an interview with Domachowska and make himself the main star of it, by notes: "I laughed to miss Marta while asking her the question"). The other ones are more sane but sometimes they can go crazy too. I can find some more texts of them for you if you wish.

PS. Cycling commentators are even more funny. For real.

Re: Commentary at its best

- His favourite surface is... chalk.

- Coria starts like an American sprinter.
- No doubt he was suspended for doping.

- Nadal looks like the world's greatest sprinter. Hmmm what was his name.. uhhh.... was it... Yes, ASA Powell.

- New balls please! Aaaahhhh straight from the shop... How yellow, how nice, how fluuuffffy!

- Maria Sharapova should get the role in the next part of "Pink Panther".

- Even children in Polesie (the poorest region in Poland) know that you can't serve Roddick on his forehand!

- Hewitt behaves like an aspirine in the glass of water.

- After Hewitt, like after a newly born child, are mommy and daddy travelling and holding his hand.

- (backhands of Mauresmo and Henin-Hardenne) It's like speaking about Christmas is superior to Easter.

- (during the commercial break, suddenly we hear) Faaaaaaascinating...
- Yeah we can talk about everything but this match.

- Dementeva's tennis is nice to watch. Just like Dementieva herself.
- True.... she's so pretty....

- He has legs, as most of the 17-yeared boys.

- (about Jiri Novak) His tennis is just like his looks.

- The weakest point of Kafelnikov is his head. This head he's shaking at this moment.

- Where is he from? Buenos Aires? (Nalbandian)
- No, Cordoba.
- You're right. He looks like he's from Cordoba.

- (about the linesman) So... this ass is about only to stand and look at the line like a dog on the bone and he even can't do this!

- Jesus! Philippoussis! What the hell are you doing?

- Mantilla is looking as he's about to die.
- He can be dying like this for two hours more.

greetings!

Re: Commentary at its best

Nadal~Federer~Baghdatis~Tursonov

Gonzo-Safin-Hewitt-Robredo-Verdasco-Moya-Nalbandian-Roddick-Kolya

"He has no idea what he is writing anymore or who he is writing to. He just puts “lol” and moves on to the next window. The girl is probably telling him that her kittens died and he just says, “lol.” "Tursunov on Monfils

This one is nice. We also have a commentator with a crush on her.

One commentator here said: it is easier for him to play: he has two hands. I don't remember which match, tho.

Allez cute coach!!! To the MC!!!

- Henman's tennis is a tennis of XVIII century.

- (about another commentator, during the point) Ooh I can see mister Krzystof Wanio through the window glass! Sorry, what? No, no, I won't buy myself a wig, I don't need it yet (it was that 86 y.o. who said that).

Re: Commentary at its best

the coveted Bruce McAvaney was in fine form today:

"a surprise or two here you would think" (in reference to Safin's win over Roddick and Youzhny's over Blake)

Re: Commentary at its best

During the Fed Cup match Belgium - Italy the camara filmed Carlos Moya (Penneta's boyfriend ) who was sitting in the stands.

- I wonder if Moya and Penneta play alot with each other

(....)

- What kind of rude question is that??

Re: Commentary at its best

Video highlights of today's DC tie between GB and Ukraine, on the BBC tennis website: the commentator, Tracy Moore or something like that, says "Dolgopolov, who is ranked over 400 places lower than Murray"...

Dolgopolov is ranked 352!
