Sandy Roberts is the WORST commentator ever.

His voice is annoying.

He knows nothing about tennis. And I mean absolutely NOTHING.

He states the obvious so much. My ears bleed.

His gasps, "hor hor hor" is so annoying - everyone wants to strangle him.

He asked Novak Djokovic to impersonate Maria Sharapova when it's plain getting old now.

His catchphrase is "She hangs on!"

"She was destined, she was born on the day Martina Navratilova played the quarters. She belongs." That's what he said about Justine being so dominant at RG. What the hell.

Anyway.

EDIT: Now he just said, "For the first time, Maria's first serve is eluding her." Dumbass.

Serena. Simona. Ana. Petra. Venus.
Clijsters, Henin, Dementieva, Davenport.
Martina Hingis - "No one else played like Hingis - no one could."

Glad you got that vent out.

Re: Sandy Roberts is the WORST commentator ever.

Dont you hate it when he whispers. God that drives me insane. I have to say the only good commentator is Keryn Pratt except she gets replaced by Tracy Austin all the time. Why do we need american commentators for!

Re: Sandy Roberts is the WORST commentator ever.

Todd is not that bad...sometimes he can be annoying, but overall not that.
You can tell he has a crush on Ana...can't really blame he though lol

Re: Sandy Roberts is the WORST commentator ever.

Agreed. He has no tennis knowledge whatsoever, and is only there because he is Seven Sports Announcer. Loving Todd, i think he's great. JB and Kerryn are both real class acts though. What are people's thoughts on Nicole Bradke?

Re: Sandy Roberts is the WORST commentator ever.

Sandy isn't very tennis knowledgable, but I don't mind because he doesn't say as much as the others.

I think Todd is great, though I've always thought he was a great guy when he was a player, so my view is kind of skewed. But he's very good with the technical aspect of the game, which very few commentators are.

Re: Sandy Roberts is the WORST commentator ever.

Remember Gerry Wilkinson from years ago? He was on Channel 7 news but now on Sky News I think he was worse than Sandy Roberts

I don't like Roger Rasheed. The only commentator I can tolerable is Kerryn Pratt.


Inspiration is for amateurs

Re: Sandy Roberts is the WORST commentator ever.

I thought the best Australian commentator was the woman on Fox Sports, it's not Nicole Pratty, someone else. I thought her commentating was always spot on.
