Buckland is a better presenter, but Bailey knew more about tennis. And I liked his banted with Petchey.

Can we please remove Barry Millns and Sam Smith from commentary as well :)

Buckland needs to stop with the puns, I may have to run down to the sky sports studio and wallop him one.

Buckland is a proper broadcaster, not an ex-player.

That came across with his Federer interviewer - text-book.

Barry Cowan, however, is an embarassment.

buckland knows virtually nothing about tennis and he looks too serious. bailey was more knowledgeable and mroe relaxed

Buckland seems a bit too formal and serious at times, but I didn't like Bailey at first either...so I'll give him some time...

More knowledgable perhaps, but more relaxed??

He had a permanently wooden look on his face.

Buckland used to be a top-class tennis correspondent for BBC Radio.

That is proper breeding for a broadcaster.

Bailey's preparation was to once almost beat Goran Ivanisevic.

Cowan nearly beat Sampras.

It doesn't make them good broadcasters. Frankly, they weren't even very good players.

That's

But seriously, who the fuck are these people?
