In Britain we got Mark Petchey AND Barry Cowan. Very, very bad when they get to commentate together with no adult in the booth. Their attempt to fill before the match started was painful. The first set wasn't too bad because they were shocked into silence, but after that it was the usual full-on Fed Gushing.

this has prevented me from enjoying a lot of Roger's matches.

i still don't think anyone can beat Cliff D. at fed-gushing. the guy talks about Federer even during women's matches.

Not as much as they drool over Roddick. They mention his name every minute on ESPN.

I still don't see anyone beating cliff drysdale's Fed-gushing.

back in the day, the Agassi-gushers would stand a chance, but those days are long gone.

Ted Robinson is the worst. Every word he says sounds like he is trying to sound out a difficult word on a paper while at the same saying it in a tone of complete astonishment.

"ROger FEDerER has been to 9 slam FINALS...IN A ROW!!!!!"

:retard:

He's said that stat at least a trillion times since Canada

Ted is bad. I think he is the worst. But the most put me to sleep is Dick, and all his perving over Sharapova and Ivanovic. He spent 2 minutes doing those stupid "she has a beautiful game and is just as beautiful on the eyes" transition every match. And then he said he mistook her Open picture for Rita Hayworth (let Rita RIP please)... and the next day, they even brought in a split screen, a fucking split screen to compare the face of Ivanovic's USO profile pic to a Rita Hayworth glamour shot by Hurrell

God, I feel for you.
Your name is Jonathan too?

Ted Robinson makes Pmac look like an analytical genius

I think the only reason they keep him on is so that Pmac can have confidence, knowing he sounds smart relative to Teddy

Polsat Sport, polish sport TV (surprised, eh?) has a funny commentator named Tomasz Lorek. It's probable he's mentioned already, but this guy is a legend. Some examples of his fine commentary art:

* During Ljubicic-Almagro match at last year's AMS Canada he told the whole biography of Ljubo, including running away from bombs, trying to cross the border and not to get shot, practising in Italy in tennis academy and so on. He even mentioned that Ljubo and his wife like and make vodka from pears. Of course he didn't say anything about what was happening during the match

* During a last year's YEC he bragged about Shanghai's club of assasins called the Green Band, which members used to kill people in 19th century

* All the time he's calling Davydenko Day-wouu (nobody know's why)

* During this year's Safarova's Wimbledon match he was referring to the thing that Lucie is an Aquarius ALL THE TIME

Top comedy stuff

When Nadal was changing his shirt in the Ferrer match Jmac said ''Nadal is changing his shirt you can see his body. What a sight.''
