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.
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.

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".

Masur and Rasheed are absolutely dreadful.

Wally "I've got a theory, Roger" Masur just can't help himself. Every match where someone catches the ball toss - In my opinion, that shouldn't be allowed. Once the ball leaves their hand they should be made hit it. He wouldn't be saying that if his pal Rafter was still playing

I was watching a match he was commentating where the umpire made a few overrules. As soon as he did Wally would say, "why is he even getting involved? There's hawkeye he should just stay out of it, he just wants to get some attention and be involved in the match". Every single time, I think it was 3, he made the correct call. Masur proceeded to claim that it was just luck that he was correct.

I hate him.

Molik says stupid things as well, almost always.

Josh Eagle is the only tolerable one in the whole commentary team, and Adam Peacock is a great host - I wish they'd utilize him a lot more. Masur needs fired.

Masur: Azarenka has taken the first set against Anna Tatishvili of Georgia. That's where Joseph Stalin came from.

They just flicked over to see the set point, instead I was watching Sharapova screaming

I actually like this combination, I like their brutally honest commentary especially Rasheed, even though Roger comes up with rather some bizarre comments (Djokovic as a top 4 volleyers made me laugh) but seems to be able to analyse the match quite well, if the player is playing shit, he'll say so without really any boundaries. Masur is a bit of a moron though but it's worse when he is paired with Stolle at the French is downright awful. With Rasheed he is bearable. Josh Eagle is ok. Got to agree about Adam Peacock though, great host.

Masur with his catch phrase about any player with a bit of size. Wawrinka "he's been in a very good paddock" and Adam Peacock "well that all Swiss cheese I can understand".

Reminds me of the Olympic coverage, when Rwanda appeared in the procession, Hazel Irvine gave us some historical tidbit before finishing with "...not just a genocide country".

During the Murray/Cilic match, at 2-2 during the third set, some British commentator said 'Cilic may have blown that set but he's a true professional. He'll fight to the end for sure here'.

Doesn't win another game in the match
