Re: Commentary at its best

I challenge commentators the world over to stop comparing Tsonga with Ali.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Commentary at its best

At one point Brad Gilbert said some-one's draw was gratuitous. I think he was reaching for fortuitous.

Brad Gilbert touched my pen!

Certainly an odd choice of words, but gratuitous also means "free of charge". Make of that what you wish.

simply terrible
I had to listen to her for over 2 hours of the Andreev/Fognini match. All she did was state how fascinating Fognini was.

Re: Commentary at its best

Who the **** is that annoying american prick commentating the end of Verdasco-Almagro on Tennis Channel??
Perhaps the worst commentator ever!
Talking during points is horrendous: "Good serve out wide. Nice forehand. Going cross court, etc"
Could you shut the **** up, already?! We're not blind, you know.

Not sure who it is. It could be Doug Adler, but not sure as I am not watching that one. I am watching Davy and Wawrinka with the Kiwi Matt Brown.

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".

He used to do the US Open on USA. He is awful, everytime someone uses a drop shot he whispers "drop shot!".

You mean the Yank or the Kiwi. He just called Almagro Nicola.

Re: Commentary at its best

commentators keep talking about a court named Suzanne Longlong.

the spanish tv commentator in the Nadal match said Hewitt has won a clay title this year "albeit on Houston clay, which is a green kind of clay but clay nonetheless".
