CB - Thank you!
That whistling idiot is truly annoying.
I think this is the first tennis match that he has ever seen as well.

I know... Fowler has never done a tennis match in his life. It's not the best time for him to start now.

Why isn't Cliff Drysdale announcing the match?

I don't think they'll be inviting him back for commentary next year. He made that same whistling sound in the previous semi final every time Venus made a huge serve. He's terrible.

Dammitt, Venus!!!

He's fine being the guy who introduces the show and stuff, but definitely keep him away from announcing.

I really don't get it... since Fowler rarely announces in other sports either.

Heck, even Mal is infinitely better than him.

- I know! He must have whistled about 8-10 times in the first set. Strange, but he would whistle on both great winners and bad misses.

He did the same thing during the Justine/Anna K. match - mostly when Anna would hit a wild shot.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who's annoyed by that. I was thinking to myself, when will that jerk stop whistling! Those are the noises that you make when you're watching a match at home or if you're with your friends at a tournament, not when your commenting live on national television!
