But by himself must be difficult. It's one thing if you don't like his voice. That's a valid reason to not want to listen. But he does a pretty solid job as far as I'm concerned. Good tennis knowledge & I like the information most of the time. I've heard him covering the US Open and he's quite entertaining. And he does a pretty good job pronouncing the foreign players. Especially Spanish. But it's obvious he just bothers you guys.
i appreciate his effort and in fact i quite liked him when i first heard him. But there's something about hearing the same irrelevant fact or inane metaphor over and over again that just kills me. He's way too repetetive and frankly quite boring.
