They show a shot of Bjorn Borg during the first semi.

John McEnroe: "Oh there he is, he made the trip. I've heard of that guy."

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Dig at Sampras. I thought Sampras was a classy guy, but not anymore.

Ted Robinson: At 14-14 in the 5th set, he said something to the liking of "Andy Roddick has held 11 times in a row in this fifth set when he has been one game away from losing the match"...and probably can't do math because it would've been 3-3 when he started that streak

A shot of a nervous Mirka. Castle makes a comment along the lines that it musn't be easy in her situation.

Boris Becker: "I know, it's not easy. Let's hope nothing bad happens here on centre court today. For her I mean."

Good old German delicacy.

Not really a match commentary, but it is from the espn website.

about Nadal:
Quote:
What was more worrying for Rafael Nadal: losing at Roland Garros for the first time, or skipping a Wimbledon tune-up due to his troublesome knees? Probably the latter. No wonder his balls lacked penetration against behemoth Robin Soderling. Get better soon, Rafa. Most tennis fans want a Nadal-Federer repeat in London.
I am not sure if this was purposefully done or not.

In a similar vein, from an article about Serena.

Quote:
If she chose the latter, it would be front-page news every time she lost a tournament. She'd complete the Serena Slam — winning all four majors — every other year. She'd be the most popular and powerful female athlete of all time.

Tiger Woods couldn't touch her. Roger Federer would be reduced to shagging her balls. LeBron James and Kobe Bryant would be the little kids in the Nike commercial bragging that they lived downstairs from Serena and Venus Williams.

Swedish commentator responding to the question "who do you think has the best serve in the world?": "Nadal. Especially his second serve."

The same guy: "Her (Carla Suarez Navarro) backhand reminds me of Justine Henin's, but I think Carla's is even better."
