I've just watched Bud Collins on Eurosport and he seems that he is losing it or has he always been this stupid??

He's funny though!

I remember after Sveta lost to Bychkova at the US Open, he said that Sveta was probably thinking 'where did this bych come from?' :lol:

Well, I recall a few years ago he tossed in Dokic and Sharapova as part of a group of "players who cannot play."

Probably but when put next to Anabel Croft he comes across as a veritable genius.

I have to say I like Anabel, probably wouldn't do as an analyst but I like her as a presenter. As for Bud Collins I find him to be pure simple! I mean what was that tonight about the Belgians - ha ha ha Not. I remember when he interviewed Lindsay just after she had won Wimbledon he was insisting Lindsay sing yankee doodle dandee - she didn't know what to say to the man and looked half frightened when he kept insisting and said "I'm ok I have my little flag".

He's been slipping into senility for about 15 years.

Nah... I'm starting lately to respect and vaue older people; but it takes patience and a different way of thinking ....... it's about time. For a long time I didn't. Youth are so arrogant, we don't know how much we don't know.

Bud Collins has probably forgotton more about tennis than all here ever knew. Give the guy a break, he is rather old and of another era far removed from this time.

cannot get ridd of him.
He was annoying when heaped and drooled and declared Chrissy the all American girl.
I think even Chris Evert herself was embarrassed by his accolades.
I wish somone would arrest him and his pants and throw away the key.

Very well said drake. I've fierce respect for older people, infact most of the people I most respect are older I think we could learn a lot from them and its sad that so many young people can be ignorant but when it comes to Bud I just don't know.........at least we will always have the yankee doodle dandee interview :lol:

Well he's like 100, it's a miracle he makes it to the courts without getting lost!

He is good value for those who casually follow the game, and I he serves that purpose well...whereas the more fanatical types who can actually tell when he is far off, well we have.....Mary Joe?? Hmm...or each other!!
