You know how Jim Courier used to read novels, literature, or study French during the changeovers when he was playing on the pro tour? Well, I consider Courier to be a pretty smart guy and probably the most intellectual of all the tennis commentators on TV.



Then, there's Vince Spadea. Here he is during a changeover during his QF match against Roddick at the SAP Open. My guess is that what he's reading is certainly not helping his already less than stellar reputation for intellectual prowess. :-(

But hey, at least he's a "smart" dresser on the court, and you've gotta love the way he accessorizes, too! ;)

This is a truelly stupid question, but how do u pronounce Spadea is it SPADE-A or SPA-DEE-A or sumthing else?

Lol that question is probably worthy of the great vince himself:D
