I think Cliff Drysdale did a fine job broadcasting in Shanghai, especially after his voice was bothering him in Los Angeles. And hopefully ESPN took care of him for traveling that difficult a schedule in that short amount of time! :) And Cliff Drysdale and Patrick McEnroe are the best tennis broadcasting tandem in tennis! Case closed! :D I hope they can grace our audio systems when The Tennis Channel arrives!

I guess the gretaest compliment I can give Drysdale and McEnroe is that I feel very comfortable listening to them cover tennis matches! They are like old friends! :)

oh, I love Cliffy! I think he's the best commentator out there. Very enthusiatic, knowledgeable and classy! Always wants everyone to do well and is very non-biased. He's a pleasure to listen to and the most important thing...he keeps PMac in line. It was astounding how he could go from being in LA that Monday night to being in Shanghai for Thursday afternoon and thankfully he sounded a lot better. It just wouldnt have been a Masters Cup without him. In fact, every tourney would be better if he was there. And he signed off the Master's with a reminder for the AO. Stay healthy, Cliffy! :)

and when is that Tennis Channel supposed to arrive?
