Default Who are the commentators on tennistv.com?

I've got tennistv.com since the Monte Carlo tournament. I think it is really good, I paid for the whole year and I get the impression it was worth the investment. Does anyone know who the commentators are? I can't remember having heard any of them before. I like them.

There is one guy called "Robbie", who seems to have an Aussie accent.

Thanks! So it wasn't an Aussie accent but a south-african one that I heard.

BTW, they have the best job in the world. Watching tennis and getting paid for it.

I havent heard him for a while. I believe he works for Eurosport and was fired from two other stations.

I watch more tennis on the Spanish channel nowadays so I dont hear him that often anymore.

Adler is the American that doesn't cheerlead Roddick, he used to go to Europe, but he doesn't travel so much.

Robbie Koenig is definitely from South Africa, but the accent certainly sounds Australian.

Funny youtube clip about the differences between South African and Aussie accents.

I think they are the worst commentators I've ever heard, they just repeat themselves over.
