AO - Which Commentators are going to drice you mad over the next 2 weeks!?

I was already annoyed today when during the highlights of the Sydney final, they talked about the AO and all they could talk about where Tim henman, Andy Murray, and Baltacha and Keothavong (although 2 of them had already lost in the qualifying!!!!)

No mention of any others outside Britain! URGH!

Thought I'd ask...
Has anyone noticed that Sam Smith and Jo Durie have IDENTICAL voices? Or is it just me?

if u can find another poster here who agrees with u, well done. anyway, a commentator is supposed to be unbiased. however, in sania's matches sania winners are described as GLORIOUS SHOTS. while her opponents' winners are met with a silence. what kind of commentator is that? and sania mirza can be serena? she just needs to improve her serve? jeez, he's too caught up in the sania craze.

They sound nothing alike to me...

I think everyone is just exaggerating with amritraj..I saw the Morigami Mirza match in wimby and he was praising morigami as well as mirza..So just stop being biased and you always have the option to hit the mute button dont you???

see i like Jo Durie, she is sometimes really funny, but other times totally way off the mark. She loves Maria and Elena Baltatcha (obviously because she helps coach her) but other times she is funny.

I remember the other week during the Doha Final, Federer hit a forehand error in the opening game to give Monfils the break, and Roger was described as "Firing Blanks!"

lmao.
