He doesn't always come out to play tho. I listened to Eurosport during RG and can't remember him at all, whereas during the Olympics he was extremely annoying. They had Mats on quite a lot and I don't mind him. I was pleasantly surprised by the commentators on the whole and the analysis.
Quite apart from not giving Murdoch my shilling, of course Whistle
BTW I can't stand Pech., he never shuts up and his drooling over Andy is, quite frankly, embarrassing! The best are on TennisTV TBH.
Maybe he was just hauled out for the Olympics?  I watched most of RG on ITV anyway and the comms there were very good.  I agree TennisTV are usually good, although there's one American comm who just keeps rabbiting on and on!   The really good thing about TTV is that you can at least watch the 'featured' match without a commentary if you want to - and that is bliss!

Incidentally those of you who prefer Eurosport comms to those on BBC, the guy you loved to hate doing the Olympics commentary - Simon Bates (I think that's his surname) - is a mainstay of the ES commentary team.

I really wouldn't be interested in living in such a cheap, trashy looking place.  Seriously though that type of living has no appeal for me whatsoever.  Small and cosy suits me just a fine.

It's Simon Reed Ruthie, although Simon Bates is a TV presenter.  Oh well at least we can look forward to his idiotic commentaries and have fun criticising him!

Definately gonna miss Petch, Lief, and Peter Fleming, also Sky have better production values. Frown

Not sure about the others, but I know that Petch said on twitter that he is going to New York for the tounament. I wonder if he will commentate for Eurosport this year, though I suppose he may just be there for the BBC radio coverage.

Just finished hanging my photo's up in my hall. Got a nice one of Delpo,Andy and Kei at the medal presentation and the other is of Andy on his own with his gold medal. Beginning to get a bit crowded. All I need now is another one when he wins the US open.

 cmon yeah yay cmon yeah

Not sure that there is much here about rankings.  I do feel that ATP shot themselves in the foot regarding the Olympics and making it hard for players to play there and also get to the O2 by removing awarding points. Andy chose to miss one tournament to make the Olympics but some others opted to stay away for supposedly other reasons.  Some I know were really injured. Let us be honest some chose to stay away as they stood to lose out if they participated. The golf was the same. I was so glad that Justin took the gold as he was a long term supporter of the event being in the Olympics.

I like the ATP news coverage of the Race situation that Andy has been closing on Novak in that ranking. Always good to hear when the top players are threatened. I never consider Andy as a top player even though at present he is the best in the world. I do not know why that is!  Perhaps because he has never made number one? We need new players contesting at the top of the game. I was hoping that Angie Kerber would win this week and topple Serena.
