Whoops!!!

Here are some really dumb comments by tennis commentators! I orginally posted these on the AK boards.

"I have the feeling that, if she had been playing against herself, she would have won that point"
Bob Hewitt

"Monica Seles has so much control of the raquet with those double-handed wrists"
Virginia Wade

"Her best forehand is on her backhand side"
Virginia Wade

"I really do sympathise with the promblem of the net when you're hitting a volley. It's a real obstacle in the middle of the court" Virginia Wade

"Tennis is one of those games like all other games..."
Virginia Wade

"Hingis is going through a part of her life which she has never been through before"
Virginia Wade

"Lleyton Hewitt has two great stregnths, his legs, his speed, his agility and his competitiveness"
Pat Cash

"She just couldn't cope with the game she did'nt have"
Virginia Wade

" I had the feeling today that Venus Williams would either win or lose"
Martina Navratilova

"Tim Henman, I guess, is sitting in the locker room, pacing up and down"
John Inverdale

"Jelena Dokic left the court with a face as long as thunder"
John Inverdale

"It's been predictable, in the sense 'expect the unexpected'"
John McEnroe

"Getting your first serve in is a great way to avoid double faults"
John Fitzgerald

nothing as dumb as the ball goes over the net many times (after a long rally) from marcella meskers. we could write a book with her comments!

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

I agree... some of my comments are pretty dumb,too. I should become a tennis commentator anytime in the future but wait... I´m way too happy at my current job although I wouldn´t mind getting paid for making rubbish comments.

Nobody´s perfect ... but me.
