These guys are the best in the business. Koenig is the "Fonz" of Masters Tennis while Goodall is the "Ritchie Cunningham" of the sport. If both left, we'd be heartbroken.

Most of the world does not get to hear the talent of these two as they do not commentate in the big games of the slams. Would you like to hear these two do Grand Slams as well as Masters 1000's?

Think there's a thread for this.

I get more of a Ricky Gervais / Stephen Merchant vibe from them as a team, only without the bitchiness.

They can be OTT at times (I don't miss Koenig's Kenny Powers / East Bound and Down references, for instance), but I'd take them over most other commentators in tennis. The few exceptions include people like Cahill, Courier, Gilbert, and Davenport.

The other guy English that does the big matches is a grade A fud.

He described a Murray double-fault today as 'unusual."

I know this may sound strange, but what makes them so good is that they know when to talk and know when to let the pictures tell the story. Grand slam commentators should learn from that.

I'd love to hear them commentating Grand Slams together.
In Spanish, the best ones are Luis Álvarez and Javier Frana, they make a great team for ESPN.

I like Goodall but Koenig is the pits. Who likes hearing girlish screams after every above average shot. Robbie might have been OK at some point before he was castrated.
