Re: Commentary at its best

During the Nadal-Kendrick match, Aussie commentator Fred Stolle came up with several pearlers.

(towards the end of the 3rd set)
"the crowd is getting right behind this youngster from the USA."

I guess age is a relative concept - Kendrick turns 27 in a few months, while Nadal turned 20 only a few weeks ago. Not that Kendrick is a veteran, but he is certainly no youngster.

(while Kendrick was serving at 3-5 in the 5th set)
"Kendrick would love to hold serve here"

(just prior to Nadal serving for the match)
"during that change of ends, Nadal ate a banana. If you recall back to the French Open, during the 5th set in his match against Paul-Henri Mathieu, he got a piece of banana stuck in his throat and had to take an injury timeout to wash it down with some water"

First of all, thanks for the story Fred, secondly, there was no 5th set. is offline
