I think it's safe to say Bradnam is the ultimate douche. Bradnam and Felgate are by far the most annoying team around. It's just awful. And he's no better with Jo Durie or Sam Smith. There's no chemistry at all. But is Bradnam the leading man nowadays on Eurosport? Every bloody time I turn Eurosport on, I hear this dork laughing and laughing. And he commentates Grand Slam finals!?

Chris Bradnam just keeps on giving. Last week I shook my head and laughed when he talked about Maria Kirilenko's boyfriend Alex Ovechkin. According to Bradnam he plays for the Washington Castles! Today during the New Haven finals he said it again. Yes, Bradnam is British and so on, but c'mon, Washington Castles!?

During the Spain vs. Argentina Davis Cup final, Justin Gimmelstob repeatedly mispronounced the Spanish word for Spain. I wanted to reach in and choke him-and I'm not even Spanish.

Sam Smith on Sky Sports: "Rufin is like a giant octopus."
"Tipsarevic is just having one of those days, I've got a good phrase for it actually which I pinched from someone else. It's like a day where you take out the roast chicken and put it in the freezer, and you pick up the ice cream and put it in the oven. The right hand doesn't know what the left is doing, and the chicken and ice cream are all over the place."

I don't remember her being this bad at commentary. I'm having to periodically switch over to Eurosport just to get a break from how embarassing she is.

Goodall is so boring when he works for Eurosport. they shouldn't give him night matches when people in Europe already sleep on half. Koenig misses him big time

Sam Smith has always been embarrassingly bad, to me.

I remember the days where she used to froth at the mouth over Joachim Johansson and yet Sky would still assign her to all of his matches.

This one is from the OG Delpo-Fed match.

Chris Fowler is trying to explain to John McEnroe what twitter parody accounts are. Not an easy job.

What woeful commentary. She was awful during the Robson match yesterday as well. Robson's a talent, but you'd have thought she was the next Serena Williams the way she was going on.

The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.

Wally Masur about Fognini "He has never met a mirror that he hasn't liked".

Masur and Rasheed during the Fish and Simon match when both guys were screaming at their camps.

"At the change of ends, they will bring out the couches with their entourages. The French will be eating croissants and the Americans hamburgers".
