I wanted to scream! Maybe they meant off the court, but on court he is definitely not nice and calm. He gets pissed more often than most other players I've seen. Bet they were eating their words when they read the transcript from the AO after they lost to Bob and Mike...lol
It's very strange, but I've seen the match on russian sport channel, but our commentator was talking the same! All match I was hearing only "Paes here, Paes there..." And I have to say, that this man doesn't understand anything in doubles at all! Sometimes he even couldn't say who's on serve: Bob or Mike!
So I turned off the sound in the beggining of the 3d set!

I saw a match like that once too. Don't remember on what channel it was though, either holland or eurosport. Anyway, the commentator kept on mixing up Mike and Bob's names so eventually he just called them both Bryan. Funny
