One of the latest I've been hearing from Fred Stolle, and another commentator too, is the "To stop the bleeding" comment, regarding players who are losing; it sounds too medical to me.

To stop the bleeding he needs to do this & that.

Fred Stolle is obsessed with players' earnings. Every single match he tells us how much each player has made. He also wheezes into the microphone constantly. He is a funny old thing but not unlikeable...

After showing highlights of a Nastase match.

Dick Enberg: "Coming up next, a look at another fiery player, Roger Federer!"

All the replays of matches allowed me to re realize Dick's mess of saying Sharapova had as many double faults as the voting age (when she had 21), and that with 21 she had a whole set's worth plus 3

In the Nadal/Gonzalez match, John McEnroe says that Gonzalez has never been beyond the semis at a Slam and then 30 seconds later he mentions Gonzo's run to the Australian Open final.

During Fed-DelPo final on CBS:

Mary Carillo talking about Del Potro: He's good at being tall. (no response)
Carillo: You got to give him that! (no response)

John McEnroe finally: You mean he's a better athlete than he's showing and can move better?

Carillo: No, I mean he's better at being tall!


Good insight Mary!

She also said no one has beaten Federer in a slam except Nadal

She also said that Serena's screaming at the umpire was out of line. Of course, she was telling that paragon of virtue, John McEnroe.
