Patrick McEnroe is out, he will be replaced by Justin Gimelstob (and if anyone is going and can get photos for me, I would love that).

Oops, so there already was a thread.
Justin Gimelstob? Wonder how well he'll play, considering that he only ended his career this year.

At least they managed to hire a decent tennis commentator, namely Gerd Szepanski who also commentated the Wimbledon Finals on german Pay TV channel Premiere.

Patrick McEnroe is out, he will be replaced by Justin Gimelstob (and if anyone is going and can get photos for me, I would love that).
Patrick or John? Neely replaced John's name.

And doesn't the coverage of the final start at 17:10 CET?

Anyone taking bets, how many matches Becker will actually be able to play? ;)

I don't know anything more, but I replaced the wrong name then. I was obviously thinking that John McEnroe would be more prone to miss this, but Fee indeed said it's Patrick to miss :lol:

Good to know then. No doubt about who of the two McEnroe brothers is more popular.

Yeah, the way he threw his racquet was :eek: :worship:

The match Steeb-Gimelstob was already played, with the expected easy win for the Gimelstob. 6:1

I was hoping they would have an online feed for this, but no such luck. Thanks for the Gimelstob result. :)

McEnroe behaving like a madman. Insulting the umpire, the crowd (middle finger) etc. :lol:

Great bh winner DTL from Big Mag, which earned him rebreak chance. As expected, overall more winners from Becker, but way too many UEs.

McEnroe def. Becker 7:6.

You could see in the interview, that Becker wasn't too happy about the outcome of the match. :D
