I'm with you. All hail Sam Smith and Chris Bradnam. I will never forsake you again.

These two guys are painful.

I give respect to American tennis fans - you suffer for your love, clearly.

Welcome to my hell. No one should ever put a microphone in the hands of Luke Jensen (or any Jensen, for that matter). Doug Adler is only moderately painful when in better company.

But, honest to God, he's not as bad as Justin Gimelstob.

And now Mardy's staying back on serve. Yeah, that's why he's an all court master, Doug. He has the weapons. He does. He must be licking his chops looking at this draw. Who we got in here? Monfils? Nalbandian? He's got to be looking at them thinking he can win some matches here. No doubt Luke, he has it all. The serve - The serve. The backhand. He has the backhand, Doug. And now if he wins this tiebreak ... if he wins this tibreak that'll be a huge advantage. I can't tell you what an advantage it is to take the first set, Luke. Sometimes people don't realise what a big deal ... It's a big deal. HUGE. It's confidence. It's confidence, Doug and when your confidence is up then .. There's the set! Mardy Fish. he's got more game. You think we're looking at a Rafael Nadal body here? hahahahaha - Not like Rafa haha. You think Rafa just has that body, he works for it. Go watch this guy on the practise courts ... running ... jumping rope. He's working extra hard. He works, Doug. And there's Mardy sitting down, he'll be feeling good one set up. It's huge for his confidence. Check out other results on www.usopen.org. Who else is on there? On the website? Murphy Jensen. Hahaha, oh yeah, get the brother in! What? He's a rockstar now, he's everywhere hahaha. You'll see the difference between a player ranked what - 154? ONE FIFTY FOUR ON THE MONEY. Yeah, 154 and a guy who's a main draw player. Smeets has only won one match at this level. beat some guy ... Lukas Lacko? You know that guy? Oh sure. Good friend, he lives down the street from me hahahahahahaha.We've been courtside for ... how many? Six? Yeah six majors and have you ever seen Rafael Nadal - the bull - he's a bull, Luke, watch his match highlights on www.usopen.org - have you ever seen Rafa Nadal put his head down? Not once, Doug. Not once. Three Wimbledons, Three French opens. Never shows any negative emotion. This is the thing, that's the difference, Mardy Fish has beaten Federer. he has the firepower. He just needs to put it together now. There's a huge difference - HUGE - between being one set all and 2 up. There's a big difference, Luke. Yeah, it's huge. The Fishmeister just needs to play his game. How many matches has Smeets won at this level? Just one, Doug. Against my neighbour Lukas Lacko. hahahahaha Yeah, he lives down the street hahahaha that guy hahahaha. Come on Mardy. That's our guy. He's our guy. This is the US Open.

thanks for the laugh... i laughed so hard i sh!t...

Thank God someone agrees with me on the Luke Jensen guy. My ears were bleeding listening to his crap during Nadal-Phau match.

Doug Adler is better. He's funny when he's with Jason. And his voice is not as half-annoying.

Adler is alright when he is with Koening and Goodall.

"Fishmeister" and "Fish the all-court master" are definitely descriptions worth keeping for future references.
