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

epic fail.

Andrew Cotter would be a genius compared to some commentators.

Koenig talking about DY's losing streak. Yes, he used the Vinny Ice line "He aint afraid of ya Vinny Spadea".

Goodall and Koenig are bored with this match, so they are mentioning famous Canadians. You know when there is a Peter North reference then that is a winning moment.

Cotter has to be one of the worst I've ever heard. I'll give him the benefit that he doesn't talk as much nonsense as some, but he has absolutely no input regarding game analysis, off court knowledge or history of the game. Just useless and pointless.

Jimmy Arias had a great anecdote during Washington the other day in which he discusses one of his best years there.

Jimmy Arias: The first time I made the finals there, I beat [Jose-] Luis Clerk in the Semi-Finals. I was so excited, I called my dad and said,

"Dad! I just beat Luis Clerk!"
"You should beat Luis Clerk. Who do you play in the finals?"
"Lendl"
"Call me when you beat Lendl."

...I didn't call him.

I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere, but when Del Potro netted that BH on match point in the SF, the british(?) commentator said "YES" in a very sqweeky and girly tone. I don't remember his name, but he always commentates during masters events. He must be a big Federer fan.

During Federer-delPo Olympics SF I heard a commentator say he was sure that del Potro would win a major one day (not ANOTHER major, just a major)

During the Davydenko and Dolgopolov match. Nick Lester talking about Dolgopolov's rapping in Umag, saying he was quite talented. Adler says "he should go back to Umag and continue the rapping after this performance".

During his match with Nalbandian yesterday, Gimelstob called Haas "Humpty Dumpty". It was very apropo.

During the Stephens-Radwanska match yesterday, Chris Bradnam said Sloane Stephens was the Sam Querrey of the WTA.

I just don't even know how? How does someone get to that?

One commentator mispronounced Marin Cilic's name as "Sil-ik." Rafa was criticized for doing it, but commentators routinely mispronounce Cilic's (and other players') names.
