Default Cliff Drysdale & Mal Washington, our commentators...Oy Vey

It's bad enough we are stuck depending on ESPN for coverage but they stick us with Cliffy and Mal. Where's Mary? Where's Patrick? I dont know if i can handle the obvious insincerity of the two of them together. I always had the feeling that if you stuffed JMac in there with them, he would kill them.

hey, nothing but respect for cliff drysdale. he at least gives people like guillermo coria a chance. patrick and mary don't give a damn unless the person playing is american.

and mal, well... he knows a lot about the game. im not sure what his commentating is like, but when he's courtside and they give him 2 minutes of air time, he usually makes the most of it.

Surprisingly, I'll get to see this TMS from first round. Here in India, it will be late in the night when the matches begin, but hopefully I'll get to see a few matches.

I don't know whether they'll get the pictures from ESPN or anyother Channel who telecasts the tournament, but I hope I get a nice commentary.

I like Cliff when PMac or Mary is there to "soften the blow" so to say, but Cliff and Mal together. It can be a bit unbearable.

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

I really don't mind Cliff at all.

but Mal just says such STUPID things. STUPID. And at least Cliff corrects him. Cliff talks a lot, too, but I think he's more fair and commentates more evenly and I also think he knows when he SHOULD keep quiet.

I've gotta say...this is making me appreciate PMac a LOT more. I'd rather hear "HELLO!" and "Eye Droppa!" 40 times a match than have to suffer through Mal.

That is so funny but so true. I was thinking the same thing. I rather hear "HELLO" then anything from Mal.

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

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?

Default 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

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.
