That's a common comment for commentators to make.

If you're talking about the woman with the really quaint English accent, she is actually pretty knowledgeable, although she is prone to some real howlers e.g. in the Hewitt-Lopez match yesterday, she expressed surprise at how much Lopez had "improved" his backhand in the last two years -she didn't seem to be employing sarcasm. :scared:

No, it was a male commentator.

After Henman won the second set against Kiefer, he said "he battles back and makes it a three set match!" Which is really stupid, because it is going to be a three set match no matter what!

Deboogle!.

Uh... what they meant was that because they split the first two sets, the mach was down to essentially a best of three. they said a similar thing the other day when a match went to a fifth set and they said it was a best-of-one match. They did it on purpose.

I'm glad we cleared that up.
