Many, many more! TBarm7 is this the same commentator who did Charlottesville last year? He sounds disturbingly familiar

I knew it! Couldn't forget that commentary. Is the guy who runs the stream open to feedback??? This guys is terrible! Oh and are you doing Knoxville?

Oh I would never - no worries. It's just such a great stream - shame not have great commentary to go with it. Thanks!

He has done the same in other matches. Maybe he doesn't know difference between ATP and challenger. But so happy that Pella wasn't on his court, Pella won though so problem is I'll have to listen to that awful again.

Horacio Zeballos - Maximo Gonzalez - Eduardo Schwank - Carlos Berlocq - Diego Schwartzman - Facundo Bagnis - all the other Argentinos

yes...another thing is that he simply has no idea about tennis and the tennis language

every winner is a "passing shot", he doesn't know any players, pronounces players' names terribly wrong

why aren't you doing the commentary this time?
tough to handle because the stream quality is great, some nice matches as well, but this guy makes it almost unwatchable

Re: Week 16 : Sarasota (Entry List)

Arguello takes the first set, 6-2.

This guy is really good mental for a 20 yrs-old. He plays good at important points and dictates when he had to. Gaba has not the power he supposed to has, so Arguello has the edge here with his mentally being matter. Also better in rallies and using his drop shot very smartly often.

Re: Week 16 : Sarasota (Entry List)

Gaba plays one of the worst matches I've ever seen him play

shame to see what he has become, not even able to do damage at the challengers, which he should always be able to

The announcer is completely horrible. He obviously knows nothing about tennis and seems like the USTA gave him the script because all the is doing is speaking on how great the Americans are.

He has been spewing so much nonsense. That Arguello hasn't served an ace this year, not knowing ANYTHING about Stebe, constantly saying balls hit by the Americans are in when they have already been called out!

I'm not sure which announcer you are, but there were some good ones in the Challengers last year. I'm sure I've heard you call matches before and just didn't know it. Anyway, best of luck trying to take over from this clown!

Canada Pospisil - Dancevic - Peliwo

Crazies Dolgopolov - Fognini - Janowicz - Gulbis

Young Guns Thiem - Vesely - Coppejans
