It's still Frew McMillan yeah? That said I am growing to like Peter Fleming, he has a pretty laconic way with words and tends to avoid clichés. Never got the immense love for Koenig either.

Love Frew McMillan shame we don't hear more of him, rather Sky used him than dreary Barry Cowan. Fleming gets on my nerves his reluctance to answer questions is almost as bad as the appalling Pat Cash. It's like pulling teeth.

I know what you mean. Particularly when Petchey is commentating with Fleming, he's not great.

Also forgot to mention I enjoyed Courier commentating for ITV at Roland Garros. Of course you could say next to Petchey anyone would stand out but I found him quite impressive.

Robbie Koenig easily. Aside from his entertaining one-liners and phrases, he brings both the hype and insightful analysis which is rarity as most either fall into one of these categories.

that's the most annoying and uninformed guy in history of Croatian's public network. He is doing Umag only because the guy who is doing tennis matches for Croatian national network is on vacation at that part of the year. This guy isn't much better either but at least is doing it with heart. He cried in live transmission when Ivanisevic won Wimbledon

Frew McMillan is my favourite. I didn't know who he was for years but him and that lower-middle class bint had some good sexual tension going. She'd tease him about his musical tastes when pop was playing at the change-overs. Nice pairing. Anyone know who the bird is?

SKY commentators for Fed v Delpo at Bercy last week are the worst I've ever heard. Two blokes without 1 clue between them. One of them thought Delpo had beaten Fed in the semis at USO 2009 and when his mistake was pointed out he spent then next 30 mins going on about how middle age was affecting his memory. More like those two Essex boys in Burton suits never knew anything about tennis to start with.
