It's alright, it's not Brett Steven or Kelly Evernden. I think his name is Mark Brown and yes he is a Kiwi for sure. I mean I could hear Adler in the background, while I was watching it and yes the Sunday fare was average.

Elise Burgin in the Fog and Andreev match was generally annoying, she didn't know why the Fog when ranked #62 had to qualify, then someone gave her the memo on the 6 week entry list thing.

"sivinth game of the first sit".

Kiwi alright, Koenig reminiscences. I noticed that you can hear the other commentators too. It was annoying at first but then I realised I could follow three or four matches at the same time. Took me a while to figure out who Kela was though.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Serena's match today. Portuguese eurosport commentators.

At some point of the match Serena's 1st serve % is very low and they mention it. Right after they mentioned it she served out 2 aces.

Commentator 1: "It almost seems like she heard us!"
Commentator 2: "Maybe she really did!! With Serena Williams one never knows!"

Even if she had these super-powers, I am sure she wouldn't choose to hear THEM.

Mark Woodforde has been in catty mood for the past few days.

Woodforde: Benneteau he has problems finishing matches, he looks tired.
Raoux: Well what do you expect he is French.

Woodforde just laughed and then he said he may be a nice bloke, but after 2 games against Roddick in Australia, he didn't want to play, it was too hot and there have been times where he has dogged it.

He continues and asks Raoux about whether he has faked injuries. Raoux says, if you asked me this about Gasquet, then I'd say yes, he has faked injuries to excuse a defeat, but Benneteau it's just mental.

Serena is scary.

Thanks for sharing, Raquel.

Sam Smith as usual with her excellent analysis, calling Bennetau's forehand "special" in the current Tsonga - Benneateu match, she has no idea what she's talking about...

Frew McMillan during Serena's match. I'm paraphrasing:

"I'm always interested in looking at players butts. some players have big butts. I've noticed Zapakalova has a big one. I always favoured a big butt during my career."

turns out he was talking about racket handles but I'm sure he knew what he was doing.

sly frew... master of the subverse...

good to hear woodforde keeping it real... he never dodged a gool ol' extended nipple rub with woodbridge, but, by gee, he's never far from the truth this red nut...

On Nadal/Gabashvili (SP?): "They're both grunting, but they make slightly different sounds. Gabashvili is more of an 'eeeeeeeh' [commentator imitates his grunting], and Nadal is more of an 'uuunnnhhh' [he does it again]"

Speaking of which...why is Nadal on Lenglen?

When there is more than 2 touch shots in a rally on British Eurosport...

"Exhibition stuff here!"

He has literally said it like 3 times in the last hour.

Woodforde had some other ones as well. He had a go at Lapentti for withdrawing, he called him soft.

Then he criticised Federer for being too passive against Martin, saying it's got to the point, where it's boring to watch and he just can't turn on attacking style against Nadal in the pressure moments, without working on it, in the matches, where he knows he will win.

totally random from some Spanish commentator:

Gabashvili, who is married... got married last year... to a Russian woman... who wanted to come here to watch her husband...

WTF?
