Koening was using the Gonzantic on the forehand and Goodall wasn't having any of it. He's like yes it's good and all when he is down 2-5 in this set and it comes off.

Lets see him hit that big shot when it's close in the TB or at 5-5, if it comes off, then it's Gonzantic.

Koening, yes I will use it more sparingly from now on.

The Betfair commentator in the Zverev - Simon match after a ball kid is hit by a ball lightly: "serves you right for having a silly little haircut".

On Nadal.

Maybe he is like a cyborg, half human, half clay court machine

Because his food was too Italian?

Average Net Clearance:

Verdasco 69 cm
Nadal 99 cm

Goodall: "Verdasco clearing the net at an average of 69 centimetres, Nadal 33% more than that"

Someone give Goodall some maths lessons.

did Koenig just say "confidencia" when talking about Monaco? (meaning confidence, which is "confianza" in Spanish)

Some quotes, all from the same person:

After a really long rally:
"What a fantastic return!"

Chardy just lost in straight sets from Almagro:
"He had matchpoints in every set"

"You'd say only one can win. But hey, this is tennis and the ball is round"

"His service [Blake] isnt going well in this fifth set tiebreak. Well... his service is going well but the ball is not"

"Lets look at tommorows order of play. At 1 we start with Djokovic versus, no not Boris, but Benjamin Becker"

"Delic tactic is to break Safins serve"

About Mauresmo:
She's playing at top level for years now but she's still waiting for her break through. She played in so many quarter and semi finals but she never wins much.
2 minutes later:
She's won 17 tourmanents

Final Basel, he doesnt know if its a best of 3 or best of 5 match.
He keeps saying its over, he won.
Then to realise:
"Ow, they made is a best of 5 match.."

"It seems impossible for Sluiter, 1-0 down in sets. But... sometimes players win while being one set down. So there are still some possiblities for him"

"Schalken plays tomorrow his 10th final. He won 7 and lost 3"

Nadal is about to change his shirt and the tv shows something else:
"That's too bad we dont get to see him shirtless.. now why dont they show that??!" (Yes, its a guy who said this..)
