I thought he meant it like that she was so excited to see him or something? I've never heard a commentator hate on Rafa ever.

Why does that mean he's a Nadal hater? Might it just be that that ball model fainted at the sight of Raf's impressive eh... A$$ets?

Re: Commentary at its best

She fainted due to overexposure from the manliness emanating from Nadull's biceps.

Re: Commentary at its best

Koenig was hot all day. I should have written down all his one liners today. The guy is actually starting to grow on me. That comment in the A-Rod match about Roddick's FH down the line being Roddiculous !!!! was hilarious...

Re: Commentary at its best

Goodall and Koenig talking about Haas's girlfriend, that she came number 5 in the Maxim Top 50 women of 2006, then Robbie says his mate and former player Chris Haggard dated #1 and #2.

Then Goodall rips Koening and says most of the time he talks a lot of rubbish, but now and then he makes a valid point.

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".

Yes, he did.

Exactly, it is more like a compliment for Nadal than like a hating remark.

Re: Commentary at its best

Are my ears deceiving me, or did Jason Goodall just say that Federer has a lot of weapons up his arsenal?

Re: Commentary at its best

Goodall was making fun of Koenig's lack of height again, then Koenig ripping on Tom Cruise for being a midget.

Whenever there is someone takes a catch in the crowd, he always makes reference to the South African cricket team.

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".

Agassi? Ha... Federer ripped Agassi with his backhand in so many ways it's unbelievable, he won the US Open 2005 match against Agassi (when it was windy) because of his BH.

Against Gasquet he consistently wins with his BH > he pushes Gasquet back and often dominates in the backhand-to-backhand rallies.

Until recently (due to the forehand), Djokovic has been his bitch, against him Fed's backhand is a weapon.

Mugay? When did his backhand become so good? When he won A Grand Sla...? O...

Kuerten's backhand was only good on clay, on hard court he was never good because he could never have the time to unleash a BH (due to his long, elastic wind up)

Nalbandian = one in a million

Funny how a lot of uneducated 15yr old kids on MTF's opinion suddenly becomes more valuable than someone who has been watching tennis for years (Leif Shiras).. a lot of other people consider Fed's BH to be right up there - and I can get links if you want me to. But you believe me - do you know why? Because it's true.

Re: Commentary at its best

Does anyone know where I can find a picture of Jason Goodall? I feel like I've seen a picture of him before, but I can't find it now.

You're telling me Nalbandian has a better backhand than Agassi?

I could say the same to you as you've said about Murray.
