Re: Rate a commentator: Kevin Skinner

Yes, he does. Glad to see I'm not the only one. In addition to rambling on while play is taking place, he seems to fancy himself as a wordsmith of sorts, and an amusing raconteur. Unfortunately this image is undermined by constant vocabulary misusages and malapropisms, in addition to a seeming unfamiliarity with how the scoring system works (a couple of occasions) or the most elementary aspects of the cultures where tournaments are held (He believed a young female lineswoman "must be as cold as I am!" when she was simply wearing a Muslim headscarf!!) He is almost (but not quite) as irritating as Adel al-Shaty on al-Jazeera sports!!

Re: Rate a commentator: Kevin Skinner

He just talks and talks and talks. He basically only states what is happening with the score ect but does it so long winded

Re: Rate a commentator: Kevin Skinner

Does anyone know what has happened to him? He hasn't commentated for a while now. He was commentating nearly every premier tournament at the beginning of the year and has disappeared. Maybe burnout lol

I think Andrew Krazny is commentating the final today.

Re: Rate a commentator: Kevin Skinner

I'm glad he's not commentating anymore, he's really annoying.

Re: Rate a commentator: Kevin Skinner

It was Kevin something-else today and he's almost as bad as Skinner.

Pretty sue he said 'As Maria Sharapova goes up 4-2' during today's match

Re: Rate a commentator: Kevin Skinner

That's Jason Goodall (working with Kevin Skinner).
I like him too but he normally does ATP.

Re: Rate a commentator: Kevin Skinner

Holy shit this guy is commentating Istanbul and I want to throw my computer out the window . He literally goes on monologues every other point and they're all just repeating the same fact. [tenminuterant]Azarenka has little preparation because she went 0-2 during the Asian swing.[/tenminuterant] Two points later, [tenminuterant]So Alicia, what do you think those two points say about Azarenka's lack of preparation due to the fact that she went 0-2 during the Asian swing?[/tenminuterant] Keep in mind that he can't be nearly that concise .

Re: Rate a commentator: Kevin Skinner

He's commentating all week . I'm not even kidding it's turning my experience of watching the event from being very enjoyable to being a stressful, frustrating experience .
