I don't know if anyone feels this way but i feel that courier talks crap. He sucks up too rafa so much and he looks for reasons to foil federer. He says some of the weirdest things. Will the oz open ever get him replaced?

Yeah Courier says some really weird things, and I don't know how much more of 'RAHHHHH-FAHHHHH' I can handle, but other than that I like him. He's entertaining and seems to know what he's talking about. He pays credit where it's due and has the personal experience needed for the position. Replace Newcombe and put a ban on Navratilova and I'll be happy. Keep Jim.

Courier's the man. You guys are lucky to have him. We'll trade you Bud Collins for him. How 'bout that? We'll also give you Mary Carillo for a vegemite sandwich.

I'm in Australia and I don't have any problem with Courier's commentary.

I reckon he is good and respectful to anyone who is playing.

Courier is fine. I used to dislike him but now I appreciate him, he's one of the best.

Yeah thats so true. Australian commentators are never nice to Ferrero, always degrading him. But during his match against Nalbandian, both Courier and also Roger Rasheed were very complementary towards JC. Listen to Newcombe commentary and it's full of insults. And not only does he praise the match, but also the career of the players. I enjoy Courier, but saying that I also enjoy listening to McEnroe. Both quality commentators.

It really can't be that much worse than the dolts they are serving up on ESPN. I thought Bud Collins was gone for good, and having PMac talk tennis to me is like having Britney Spears writing a book on how to be a parent; they tried it once, and now innocents are suffering.

I really like Jim Courier's commentary and I think he carries on more about Federer than Nadal.

During the semi final between Nadal and Tsonga he was constantly praising Tsonga and when he praised Nadal's endurance it was done with realism.

I hate Mary Carillo. When I first heard her commentating and I didn't know who it was I thought that it was a man speaking. :rolls:

Is he the one who keeps using the word 'glorious'? "that is a glorious pass", "that is a glorious forehand", that is a glorious backhand"
But yeah, I do like him.:D
