1) He looks really pathetic in his "Vijay on the spot" sunglasses. It makes him look like a do-do. Those sunglasses look like they're from wal-mart.

2) When he's on the spot, he just whizzed thru the women's predictions whilst talking about them:

"Kuznetsova should come through against Vaidisova"

"Myskina should come through against Jankovic"

he obviously had no clue what he was saying when he predicted myskina "should come through" against Jankovic. I mean, seriously, Jankovic will BOTHER her. And Vaidisova has a shot against Kuzzy :rolleyes:

3) He made Alan almost lose his cool when Vijay himself predicted that Shenay Perry is most the likely player to cause an upset today. Then Alan said "Come on, predict something bigger!". And Vijay was pissed at alan's witty comeback - what a retard Vijay is. Alan kept his cool and just laughed it off, saying "okay all right" :lol:

Stooopid Vijay, what a dork.

Ok, i have no idea who Vijay is and I will agree with you nonetheless but I really wanted to tell you earlier that your avatar is bothering me every time I lay my eyes on it. I have no idea who that person is but it's scaring me . :mad:

That is LINDSAY DAVENPORT!!! And she is ADORABLE.

Anyways, this Vijay guy is a commentator who is really biased towards men's tennis and just totally ignores and shut up when commentating on women's matches - unless if the Williamses or Sania Mirza - both her and Vijay are Indian - are on.

yeah i know, i'm sick of this jerk too.

you have no idea how glad i am when Sania eventually lost the match. because if she is still in the draw, we get to see her interview day in and day out. even i admire Sania, i can't stand it 'cuz it wasted the time to show a live match!

this year he humiliated himself a lot at Wimbledon. he predicted Justine won the title here and she lost 1R. today he said Perry will beat Mauresmo and the girl got ass kicked :rolleyes: :o

oh and that sunglasses :retard:

No. VJ said and is for Serena to win the title. The other
dumb ass Allan Wilkens the former cricket player jumped
on my BOSS's bandwagon and jinxed her!

VJ dislikes Justine ever since 2002, when he asked her for an
interview/chat and she snubbed him during a rain delay!! :lol:
He couldn't stop complaining about it to Allan Wilkens about
how "young players have no history or respect".

It's hysterical because she probably didn't know who the
hell VJ was, and thought he was some sort of weird pretentious
creep. :p

showing asian matches instead of showing the better matches (kim,lindsay,marat, roger etc) is a valid reason to kill someone. they didnt even show the marat-philiousis match and instead showed the ferrero-lee match. then when sania mirza was already on they just decided to switch matches..

Absolutely agree with everyone! Although they don't admit it, I bet it's Vijay who decides what matches to show. The low point was when they showed his son playing at the US Open against Paradon.

During the Bhupati/Paes days, they kept showing their matches and he kept going on about how good they are. Even showed one of them playing a singles match! And he loves boasting about his credentials, how he pushed Borg to 5 sets once at Wimbledon...

And he keeps saying 'oh I say!'..

Fire Vijay and bring back Andrea Leand!!!

This guy is seriously a CREEP! He thinks he knows everything and Alan is sort of like his puppy.

:lol :@ how he got snubbed by justine and he totally deserved that! And notice how he has since then not done any interviews with a top player - leaving it to some poor guy to do it. I bet he's sooo chickened out he'll be declined many more times. I agree it's sometimes annoying when they showed some really 'unknown' match like the lu-ferrero or the cho-srebotnik. I also wanted to see the top players!!! Grrrrr...

They didn't evenn show Kuznetsova-Vadaisova today or Myskina-Jankovic. They've showed two men's matches now already :fiery: Amelie won easily so we only saw that for ONE freaking hour. Ugh.

During the rain delay just a while ago, they were discussing the up-and-coming young players like Sharapova and Murray.

He needs to zip it if he wants what's best for Sania and Star Sports. I'm actually really irritated with his face, voice, opinions and sunglasses.

And Alan isn't too great either. Why the hell does he host ALL sports shows on Star Sports? Is he an expert on ALL sports? So sick of both their faces! :(

I was thinking about this too, but he might either laugh it off and try to add more to our frustration with his commentaries later on, OR he might be just angered but won't totally shut up because by hook or by crook, he WILL be the commentator until the last day of Wimbledon. All he cares is the men's matches. Notice how him and Alan comment on the men's matches but leave the women's to Pam Shriver and David?

At the start of every telecast, vijay has to predict which seeds will prevail or fail in their respective rounds. This is where a stupid-looking Vijay is shown with two other men - one of them being Alan - pretending to be looking like FBI detective-wannabes. He wears this little sunglasses with a golden frame around it, kind of like the one Yuri Sharapov wears, except smaller.

Btw, they're showing yet another men's match again: Johansson and Gonzalez - that's Five in a row already :mad:

i wonder why starsports is keeping him as a commentator. He's absolutely shallow in his knowledge of the latest happenings in tennis (esp. womens tennis) and makes shallow comments that most tennis-literate people can make.

I'll never forget how he laughed at and snubbed Monica Seles few years back by saying she's too old to win Wimbledon. Even if that was true, he didn't have to make a joke out of it.

and two days ago, he was subtly boasting about himself, how he beat Yannick Noah (in 1985?) at wimbledon after Noah had won the French Open. Can anyone beat that... ? self-glorification at its worst..

Because he's the only breakout tennis star India has had (ever or recently?) and Star Sports is an Indian TV network. The only good thing he has achieved TV-wise for us was interview Martina Hingis and Boris Becker on set during one of those long rain delays last year. I bet he secretly loves those rain delays so they can get out his first round loss to Borg (was it Borg? I forget.) out of the vault. :o

Our e-mails have not gone unheard though. We've had SO MANY guest commentators this year like: Tracy Austin, Pam Shriver, Anabel Croft, Virginia Wade (the BEST!), John McEnroe, Jimmy Connors, etc. :)

Anyways, the reason why they are keeping Vijay as a commentator is because he's done a lot of things that Star Sports just couldn't refuse to fire him. He's been in tennis and acting, so Star Sports think he just has talents in everything :rolleyes: I mean for an incompetent bastard like him who always talks with Alan simulatenously like 50% of the time is just not convincing. Another reason why he has not stopped commenting is because there are NOT enough of us complaining to convince them Vijay is a dumbass. The population in Asia is, umm, well you know really humongous. Plus, Star Sports is probably the biggest sports network, alongside ESPN in asia, so viewers can't and won't complain about it - because of the relatively excellent coverage of sports they get here.

The only way to get to it is to bombard them with a lot of emails justifying why Vijay is really incompetent in his talking. I've also observed that they do acknowledge they've received comments and questions from viewers via email - but they only mention positive ones. I wonder it was a direct email that they actually have access to, because I had to go to "contact us" in order to input my comments - maybe this is the only way?

I know, because that's just how annoying he is. When Nirupama used to be there it was annoying too as hell.

i agree vijay should be fired! he's an awful and biased commentator and his obsession with sania mirza is annoying as hell. i'm already dreading the US Open as star sports will most probably cover it and we have to listen to the same crap from that arrogant self-glorifying man.

OMG, finally, I found a thread bashing this Vijay guy.

I really hate him, in every aspects. His accent is very annoying. I will attend the US open this year. And if I happen to see him, I will just saying it straight to him that I don't like him working for starsport. :o

I understand that Starsport is more or less Asian!! But, you don't have to show the whole match of an unknown (Chinese or whatever) player. I am sure they will have a local channel who requested the direct sattellite broadcast from Wimbledon. We just simply don't want to watch it. And those unknown players were playing another unknowns..gosh!!:confused:

And I damn hate about the match selections. Star shows least-interesting matches. I am so sick of starsport!:fiery:

Please, Vijay, it's now 2000s tennis, you are already out of business long time ago and you've failed adjusting yourself!! :mad:

Vijay's favourite Wimbledon moment of the week....

Surprise, surprise! The Mirza-Kuznetsova match. :eek:

Sania's still in the mixed doubles tournament, btw, and I'm afraid StarSports might show one of her matches. :o

i'm gonna pray for Sania to win mixed doubles now 'cuz this is the only way to kill Vijay legally. i mean he might be too excited with the match and then getting heart attack :devil:
