During the Ancic-Wawrinka game on BBC they were showing some Swiss fans covered in their national white-crossed red flag.
Whoever it is that was co-commentating with John McEnroe:"As always there are a lot of Croat fans when Ancic plays. Very distinctive red/white outfits."
JMac:"Actually, those are Swiss fans."

but straight after that the camera show a couple of people wearing white and red check shirts just like the Croatian footballers wear. I think they wore something similar during DC too.

Johnny Mac during the Roddick/Murray match said that he played Murray at an exhibition 2 years ago and was impressed by Andy calling him Mr McEnroe. The only other player to do that was M.Chang who after they played said "it was an honor Mr McEnroe" and a year later he won the FO. Therefore that is a sign of great things to come for Murray in the future.

Maybe he will win Wimbledon now

I actually think Mary Joe is the best of the female commentators for ESPN, with Mary Carillo being the worst.

I've never pay too much attention to the commentary, but I will listen carefully today and try to find some classic quotes. It shoulden't be that difficult really, seeing as P-Mac, Cliff, Dick Enberg and Mary Carillo all comentate for ESPN. Between those four, I should find something good.

Default Re: Commentary at its best

As a warm up before today, some classics from Wimbledon 2003 (courtesy of your favourite Polish TV )

- Again he tore off the head of his rival (Hewitt).

- Karlovic doesn't move very fast on court. I'd say: with old English lady's dignity.

- We could seriously wonder from where has this person been taken at all (Karlovic)

- Sportsman of the paper weight category (Hewitt)

- Lleyton "come on" Hewitt

- When I see him hesitating (Karlovic) in front of the net, my back skin creeps

- It must be his brother or another kind of a cousin (about the little boy feeling happy about the game won by Ivo)

- Because ladies and gentlemen, grass is a living surface...

- You all should know one of the most important people in England is a GAR - DE - NER.

- This cyclop his cruel.

- Looks like he's enjoying a little nap (Hewitt)

- This break worked for him as the cut of the whip.

- This tennis basketball player, this player-tourist, this tennis meat to beat, a target for Mario Ancic (guess about whom)

(another match):
- I was talking about Federer... I thought it was a crocodile... hmmm... Could the camera come closer? No it wasn't.

- It was a gift from Koubek. These two countries share the boarder, that's why.

- I called him vice-Rafter (Federer in 2003).

- He could take a breath. Hopefully, not too deep.

- I must confess, I am not a specialist in meteorology. But I prefer strawberries with cream than rain in Wimbledon.
- Maybe our spectators would want to taste some strawberries with cream, with knowledge they are much cheaper in Poland, and hopefully equally tasty.

- (totally out of the sudden, about Coria): That Argentinian that we liked so much and commented his matches, how was he called... he has a brilliant soft wrist, he could be a great grass court player.

- Federer doesn't have a killer instinct on court.
- Do you know why? Because he's a good soul.
- Well behaved, you mean?
- No, I didn't say that. Just a good soul.

- Hmm, this athletic player is thinking, it's not a boom-boom.

- Koubek showed some discreet doubts. Wow, even not so discreet.

Nathii, great ones!

Today I heard these pearls from a Polish commentator:

"The way it's shaping up, Rafael Nadal could be Roger Federer's main rival in this tournament - who knows, maybe even in the final!"

(About watching Roger play) "It's like eating a cake that is getting sweeter and sweeter."

"It takes two to tango and it takes two to play a tennis match."

"Federer is a well-oiled machine."

Polshit Sport

I haven't heard any today... Maybe because senior Tomaszewski was all in nerves during Aga's match and so was I! actually he predicted the score 6-2 6-2

But surely I can dig for some old ones Soon to come.
