You have a point there. I can't imagine the expectations from the tennis world that would be placed on them. On Steffi's SportsCentury they said that when their son Jaz was two he hit the ball over the net from the baseline. I just see one of them being outstanding, talent-wise and mentally(if anything like Steffi).

Playing a seniors event in Portugal, apparently.

Round robin results Wednesday from the ATP senior tour event in Portugal were Richard Krajicek d. Mikael Pernfors, Emilio Sanchez d. Mats Wilander, Jim Courier d. Henri Leconte, and Michael Stich d. Joao Cunha Silva in three. Today's matches feature Cunha Silva vs. Pernfors, Leconte vs. E.Sanchez, Wilander vs. Courier in a first-time meeting between former No. 1s, and Stich vs. Krajicek.

Re: Cliff Drysdale & Mal Washington, our commentators...Oy Vey

For all of Mal's mistakes, I actually prefer him to PMac, whom I find insufferable. Because of his role as DC captain, I can't help but think his comments about his team members (and those who might be team members some day) must be biased. Is he ever going to say something that might annoy a team member he needs to be a successful captain?

Mal's stupidity is reaching new levels. At least Cliff is there to correct his mistakes but seriously. The comment about Andy not making the second week of Wimby just made me

Re: Cliff Drysdale & Mal Washington, our commentators...Oy Vey

Mal is so irratating. He talks so much that he doesn't realize what he is saying most the time. During the Roddick/Keifer match, he said that Roddick did not play as much tennis last summer because he did not make it to the second week of Wimby. I know Cliffy had to be holding back because(as PMac would say), "HELLO" - he made it to the semis, that is the second week. And actually it is only a day or so less than making it to the finals.

OMG, that Roddick - Mirnyi match just now was insufferable. I was actually using the mute button on points. Shut up already, Mal! Let the tennis speak for itself. For chrissakes.

Re: Cliff Drysdale & Mal Washington, our commentators...Oy Vey

the worst commentary ever was the CBC doing the finals of tms canada. i don't know why they had to make the cbc cover it. the guy kept saying 'Andy Roddick needs to come into the net more. he's not very good at volleying, but he needs to keep coming into the net.'
point after point, roddick would come in and get passed, and the guy would say 'i like what roddick is doing, he's playing smart.'

cliff is still the man, mal was talking about tennis clubs today and said one of federer's forehands was one you'd see at a club.... not the best stuff ive ever heard

That was the dumbiest thing that I have heard in awhile. It's so obiviously not true. Including Cincy, there are still 3 TMS left, Masters Cup and a GS left. Come on, he should know better. And I agree, I would take annoying over stupid anyday. It's like he talks just to hear himself speak. But tell me, what do you think about the ever so whispery Mary Carillo?

haha. well the way I see it... PMac is just annoying, a little obnoxious... but he knows his tennis and he's pretty knowledgeable about the players. Yes, he favors his Davis Cup kiddies and that should probably be avoided, but even then, I like the personal touch when he commentates matches from people he knows personally. But Mal, on the other hand, is just stupid. Saying things like "Roger could take the whole rest of the year off" and other such ridiculosities is just flat out stupid. And I'd take annoying over stupid any day
