Re: AUS TV - 2011 Coverage

Todd: it shows Sharapova is a natural lefty because she fist pumps with her left hand

Maybe because her racket is in her right hand

Aww I like Lleyton, he seems like a sweetie. He actually talks about women's tennis like he is interested, rather than in contempt like a lot of male commentators.

Re: AUS TV - 2011 Coverage

Bruce and Jim have to be the worst commentary combination. Ever.

I do like Lleyton though.

Yeah I enjoy Lleyton's commentary he's got a really sweet/endearing speaking voice.

Re: AUS TV - 2011 Coverage

yeah Lleyton is good, with his voice and his knowledge about the game. compared to Bruce who just reals off useless stat after useless stat and ends all his sentences with one of "isn't he", "doesn't it", "isn't it"... etc.

i like Jim though!! some of his calls make me laugh

Re: AUS TV - 2011 Coverage

^yes it's the worst I swear to god they didn't do it before Jim started doing it it annoys me so much. They really need to be briefed on pronunciations.

Re: AUS TV - 2011 Coverage

I loved Stubbs' off court interview with Sloane after her Quarterfinal win, it was really sweet. [/Finally watching today's matches after a long day at work]

Sorry, OCD stan here They're just all such morons, urgh.
There was also a time that Jim was pronouncing Tsonga - 'T-songa' not 'songa'..... law unto himself in the booth.

Agree that Lleyton is great too. Bruce, Todd, Jim, Fitzy all seems to speak of the top players with some kind of god-like reverance. Lleyton certainly shows respect but is also able to articulate aspects of their games that he has found aren't that strong.

There's more to life than just being happy.

Re: AUS TV - 2011 Coverage

I looked through next weeks Eurosport tv guide and I couldn't see any WTA Paris coverage. It looks like we're back to the fairly limited WTA coverage of a few years ago

Top 10: Ashleigh Barty, Caroline Garcia, Jamie Hampton, Jelena Jankovic, Agnieszka Radwanska, Lucie Safarova, Maria Sharapova, Karolina Sprem, Sam Stosur, Jarmila Wolfe.

All time favourite: Anna Chakvetadze


Will my weakness for an hour, make me suffer for a life time?
