:rolleyes:@ ignorant british commentators

its a rain delay so i was watching the queens final - roddick vs mahut..... Roddick is serving bombs all over the place and the commentator says someone sent an email to him asking him a question. The question was; 'Whats the women's serving world record? is it close to roddick's 155 mph?' the commentator says ' no, i dont think its anywhere near the mens...i think serena owns the record at 124mph ' I was thinking WTF?? I mean come on...players have probably served over 124mph about 24 times lol...that was just a stupid guess...fair enough if he didn't know Brenda's record but COME ON NOW?! Venus Just served a 128/129 mph (however you look at it) serve at the FRENCH OPEN 2 WEEKS AGO....if the commentato's THAT ignorant then he should at least know that serena served a 126 mph serve in 04 at WIMBLEDON.....and if he didn't know that, in the 9 years venus held her 127 mph record, he should have heared of it AT LEAST ONCE...

Re: :rolleyes:@ ignorant british commentators

You have to consider that alot of tennis commentators also comment on/must be interested in other sports, they don't just sit their ass on WTAworld reading threads like "Peak Serena vs. Peak Lindsay" all day like many of us

lol calm down

The british commentators are really sexist, they're always so patronising towards the women's game. Unfortunately!

Unsurprisingly it was Andrew Castle who said that - that man should be shot if he is seen anywhere near a tennis commentary box!!!

Re: :rolleyes:@ ignorant british commentators

true no need to get worked up but for their "defense", ignorance seems to be a disease in commentators all over the world

Laissez nous créer, une arme en amour, une bombe à lumière, un fusil à fleur, une vie sans barrière.
Laissez nous rêver, d’un enfant président, d’un roi sans couronne, d’un Jésus indien, d’un Dieu qui pardonne, même ceux qui l’oublient.

Re: :rolleyes:@ ignorant british commentators

that's funny

The Williams Sisters

It's great to be a fan of the two most talented women in tennis.

Only IDIOTS count out the Williams sisters!!!
Serena: 13 Slams, ranked: #1
Venus: 7 Slams, ranked: #2

Re: :rolleyes:@ ignorant british commentators

whos the commentator on the cavaday-hingis match? is it tracy austin and sam smith?

well they were talking about the venus serving record and tracy austin says 'i believe it was 129 mph?' the british commentator says certainly: 'no it was 126 mph'
