Game Set and mats! Good God!

Who was that awful presenter on that program? I know this is a bit late to be ranting in regards to RG, but it's GM and stranger things have happened

He was pronouncing names wrong, twitching all the time, nervous laugh, and reading notes visibly showing no knowledge of tennis at all.

Who was this man!

Honestly Wilander annoyed me a lot more. He has no clue about WTA. I thought I would crack when he said Janković is the overwhelming favourite before the SF. He was mixing up facts as if he found out some of them minutes before the programme. He never managed to pronounce Jelena's surname properly the whole fortnight too.

Ana Ivanović.

Re: Game Set and mats! Good God!

Mats is a tool.
He said Jelena and Kuzy would reach the finals. When that didn't happen he said Dinara would win...



I don't about the other guy. Mats stole his thunder, I guess.

Oh i know Since when was Jankovic pronounced with a harsh J consonant

I thought Europsport was a shambles, as it always is when they bring former players back. I mean i like Maggie Maleeva, but in 2005 when she came on she was so incoherent. As was Novotna from time to time

I know! The other day Wozniacki was going to beat Ana and at the end when he was asked if Ana is capable of dominating women's tennis he said absolutely no, because there's too many younger players. Again who... I'm guessing Wozniacki.
Oh well good for us, I guess... since Ana was proving him wrong each time.

wasn't that Barbara Schett? Anyway, they both (Barbara and the man from this year) suck...

Mats kinda sucks too... he said Roger would have had good chances against Rafa or something like that

Whatever you do now,
the world still turns.

Well mat is such a kiss-ass anyway. I remember him saying something about Venus playing badly at RG last year, and then interviews her and then says 'You're playing so well here'. I could've slapped both his faces

That's actually something he always does.

Omg, that's the man who said Roger lacks balls when playing Nadal (on clay). However, he apologized to him this year for those remarks and said Roger has a chance to win this year. He's delusional - once again. We all saw what happened in the finals.

His predictions are absolutely ricilous. The person who knows nothing about tennis would be better than him.

wow. I'm glad I wasn't the only one that saw that.
I'm quite surprised it took this long for a thread to
appear about it. I don't know his name but that man was
terrible
