I Like Darrin Caghill As A Commentator

He's alot better than Gilbert is and seems to know alot about tennis, of course because of he coached Andre and such but I like him as a commentator, very calm and relaxed all the time.

Re: I Like Darrin Caghill As A Commentator

The first time I saw Cahill without his cap I was confused. I said "This guy looks so familiar".lol He is unbiased; that's the key to a good commentator. He does the game, the strategy, and not necessarily the player.

Re: I Like Darrin Caghill As A Commentator

He's a very sweet guy. I think he'll have a great run as a commentator. He definately does his best to put a positive spin on things.

Re: I Like Darrin Caghill As A Commentator

He's smart and knows what he's talking about, which is rare for ESPN commentators. And he's not obnoxious and biased like Brad. Yay Darren!

Re: I Like Darrin Caghill As A Commentator

I agree, he's a HUGE improvement over that egotist, Brad. A great addition to the cast of thousands now commentating for ESPN.

Re: I Like Darrin Caghill As A Commentator

I was so waiting for someone to start a thread on this. (I think it's Cahill btw)

I heard him for the first time in the Baghdatis match and he was excellent. He obviously knows quite a lot about tennis, and the bits and pieces he shares of his experiences coaching Agassi are really interesting.

And yeah, like some others said, he seems to give a fair and balanced view of things.

Re: I Like Darrin Caghill As A Commentator

Darrin Cahill is like a breath of fresh air.

Brad Gilbert was like a stale public restroom.

I wonder why they fired Brad... Can they do the same to Patrick "I'm for Roddick" McEnroe?
