Stich was playing awesome today. Better than most players on the ATP Tour. His backhand is a beauty.
I think you can't expect them to show Goellner vs Gimelstob or other teams with no German participation live. It's sure that they focus on some matches and about three hours every day was okay IMO. But the many commercial breaks and too long talking before or after the match sucked.oh, and the tv coverage here in germany was just horrible, by the way.
They had 1 or 2 times in the final. Players had to wait on their bench until the commercial break was over. Pretty annoying for the players and the viewers.And while you can complain about the length of the commercial breaks, they at least didn't have any between the changeovers, so I could live with that.
McEnroes behaviour in the match against Becker was a bit too much for my taste, but I found him really entertaining yesterday against Stich. His kick in the border and the complaining with the referee that it wasn't necessery to gift Michael points as he would be the better player anyway :lol:Becker was a bit disappointing, this little joke against McEnroe shouldn't have happened. Stich and Goellner played well in the 1993 team, deserved win for them, but you also couldn't have complained if USA won it because Gimelstob was a strong part of the team and a dangerous double with McEnroe.
And it were some very entertaining temper tantrums of McEnroe and funny discussions between him and Roland Herfel :haha: but one was really too much as he fired a ball into the direction of a line judge.
Overall this tournament was a nice idea and the players seem to have enjoyed it. But I think the matches took place a bit late during the week, yesterday it was much better.I think you can't expect them to show Goellner vs Gimelstob or other teams with no German participation live.

Getting Gerd Szepanski as commentator was a brilliant move, he was at his vey best, but I just can't stand Steven Gätjen :banghead: and Opdenhövel is a bit too much of a Labertasche sometimes, but okay for some events like "Schlag den Raab" etc., I still can like him
