On the radio, they were talking about Tommy Robredo, and they called him 'Tommy Ro-breed-o' and on the TV today, they had James Blake (USA)
VS Fernando Gonzalez (ESP). Not commentators, but I can't be bothered finding the other threads.

Wilander got a bit excited with Murray today. The best was

'Murray has the best backhand in the game, and that's not an overstatement'

On the BBC today:

With Murray leading 3-2 in the fourth set - I really feel that Murray can carry this through and win now.

With Nadal servign for the fourth - I never really felt that this match was out of Nadals control.

Wilander was ridiculously excitable today. I think he was drunk. Both of these gems came after the first set:

"We thought Federer and Nadal were going to dominate tennis for years to come, but then Andy Murray came along!"

"That was the best set anyone has played in these championships so far and I'm including all of Roger Federer's sets when I say that!"

And on BBC, Andrew Castle was amazed that Nadal was signing autographs with his right hand. I mean it's not exactly a secret is it?

Apparently that guy didn't get the memo.

Not really a commentary, but when Andy was serving at 0-5 today, his first serve was called out and a lady in the audience shouted, loud and clear: "Are you sure?! "

On Star Sports:

Robredo is looking for his 1st GS semifinal. Only Federer stands in his way.

Also on AO radio, during Davydenko v. Haas match,

"So, I was trying to decide if Davydenko was the most unknown #3 seed in AO history. So, I looked up all the year end #3s since 1976 and I could only come up with three names more anonymous than Davydenko... (ed. note: drum roll)

"First, Juan Carlas (instead of los) Ferrero."
(awkward silence, then they decide Juanqui is better known than Davydenko.)

"Ok, how about Alex Corretja?" (commentators discuss and say that he was just a clay courter- so maybe)

"Finally, Yevgeny Kafelnikov." (other box commentators point out that Kafelnikov actually won the AO.)

Priceless.
