why would somebody be paying Rusedski for his commentary services ? this guy is the worst combine of game opinions, failed humor attempts and forced laughing which you could imagine. I bet people watching BBC with volume off when he is in the office

He's appalling, Petchey's so much better.

Mark Petchey is appalling. Tennis commentators are a special breed, they're all pretty much the same. They all try to be funny, for whatever reason.

Can someone tell me the name of the Scottish guy commentating at Wimbledon on the BBC? I thought I'd have heard the last of him after last years championships, but the swine is back once again.

Rusedki horrific.

Watching the Bellucci nadal match and despite Bellucci missing almost everyone volley, he doesn't mention him, but praises rafa's increase in serving speed. It made no sense.

Yeah, for that very reason I'm disappointed the BBC didn't try get Courier on board, thought he was good commentating at the FO. Tells it how it is, well mostly, more than the Wimbledon crew anyway.

Andrew Cotter, I believe.

He's grown on me. Think he's pretty decent now.

I think the Sky German commentator of the Melzer vs Wawrinka match just said:

"Kohli and Tommy playing on Court 19 atm. Thanks to the English for that."

Tennis commentators don't set very high standards, they don't talk enough about technique, strategy and the dynamics of the match itself and I don't think this guy is any different. His calling of the score and collection of clichés just makes me want to mute him but I can't stand not hearing the ball and surroundings.

I don't know how he's managed to obtain a stable seat in the BBC booth, looking at his qualifications, but he's done well for himself.

Exactly what I think of him too. Just inane, they're all at it and talking through points. I don't care about Mr Williams beard Virginia, I don't need someone to say ace when I can see it on TV, I don't need someone to say Andy won that game, I know, I can also see what the score it so why tell me, it says match point on screen so why the bloody hell are you telling me it's match point. They just state the aboslute bleedin obvious.

And they're being really gushy about British players.

Not sure who, maybe Andrew Castle, I can never tell them apart...

After Murray loses a point due to another ball popping out of his pocket mid-rally:

"You'd think with 20mil career earnings he'd have deeper pockets than that"

Probably Henman or Bradnam. I'm sure you'd recognise Henman's voice though so it's probably Bradnam. The other one in the booth is Mcenroe so I wouldn't imagine it'd be him.
