Pat O'brien has been around for years, he used to host NBA On CBS and the US Open, the announcing is subpar but gotta expect that because as someone said its for the average Joe, the best bet is if you live in the US watch on nbc olympics site, it has courts centre, 1, 2, 14 and 18 ( for some reason 3 is actually court 14 and court 4 is actually 18)

Gimelstob "If the length of this match were a stock, you should short it."
Please stop trying to be clever, Justin. It never works.

Gimelstob: Federer missing a FH is like watching Halley's Comet, happens once every 76 years. Haber: I'm glad I was with you

Found this on twitter, didn't hear it myself.

Some of these commentators should be paid to shut up.

That's just so fanboyish and retarded it makes me physically angry. Why would someone who actually watches tennis think like that?

BTW, who's this guy (the younger voice)?

He's the best tennis commentator I've heard, genuinely insighful, witty and entertaining at the same time.

Maybe you meant McMillan, whom is a good commentator.

The other one is Bradnum (British accent), one of the most awful commentators around.

Someone should tell Haber , to shut the hell up. From the first ball to the end of the match this guy keeps talking stats, stats, stats, I don't think he even watches the match, he must google all this. =Really looked forward to watching the Olympic tennis on Bravo, until I heard his voice 7am Sat morning. Tennis Channel usually has him doing women's matches, which I don't watch, so don't have to listen to him.

brett haber is a califonia fox sports guy, so he really doesn't know his tennis that well. He's a pretty boy, and tries to sound like a guru when he usually just comes off as being a prick.

My lol for this tourny so far is Pat O'Brien introducing Tsonga as "konga." Wertheim immediately corrected him, which he probably was whipped for later.

Anyone watching the BBC coverage will be familiar with Andrew Cotter. The Scottish guy with the dreadful voice and accent who is absolutely full of clichés and redundant musings of the score.

I really dislike John Lloyd and Andrew Castle, especially when they're together, but I've never wished more for a "no commentary" option more than when listening to this guy.

Really? He talks as much drivel as most commentators, but I don't find anything wrong with either his voice or his accent (and no, I'm not Scottish).

Gimelstob, in his ever-annoying obsequious cheerleader mode for American men, yelled during the Isner-Tipsarevic match, "that was a terrible call, Isner's ball was clearly in, you could see the chalk fly."

There is no chalk at Wimbledon, the lines are painted. It was probably dirt that flew, meaning the ball was out. Geezz ...
