He said something hilarious on Roddick vs Lopez a little earlier, can't remember what it was though. :o

He came up with one of the funniest pieces of commentary ever earlier in this match:

(during a close Lopez service game, camera goes to Brooklyn Decker in the crowd)

Boris: And there we see Andy's lovely wife, Brooklyn...

(pause)

Boris (to Andrew Castle): Have you seen the swimsuit edition?

Castle: (tries to get attention back to the tennis, can't remember the exact line)

(Lopez serves, comes forward to volley, during the point Boris continues talking)

Boris: I know I have.

I think he comes across as stupid actually. Random blabbing. He butchers English, sorry. Talks during points. He's preferable to Castle but that's cos anyone is.

Best is McEnroe. Then Sam Smith.

Shame that he was being balanced out by Andrew Castle, who I'm pretty sure is a direct descendant of Hitler, if not a reincarnation of the man himself.

I love listening to Becker, Mcenroe and Henman. In that order.

Or, to anyone with a mic after I've watched a match commentated by Rusedski, as long as Greg isn't anywhere near the commentator booth.

(My 5 favorite commentators are Becker, Gilbert, Hingis, McEnroe, Cash, in no particular order)

Yeah Greg is a spaz. His accent is just harrowing. :speakles:

(I don't like how Rusedski speaks rather fast and mumbles, it's difficult to appreciate anything he says)

Becker is the William Shatner of tennis commentary, although he hasn't passed into full-blown self-parody just yet.

I actually really like Andrew Castle, and I like Rusedski too.

Best is McEnroe.
McEnroe said Nadal's volleys are better than Federer's. Yeah, great :tape:


Becker is a great commentator and was a brilliant player.

There is never a dull moment with Becker. He can come up with anything :devil:. Johnny Mac and Connors are my favourite though.

I didn't even know this was up for debate. Nadal's rule all.

Boris has always been a class act off and on court. Every of his opponents would agree maybe exception for Andre :haha:
