I find it odd sometimes that Boris just shuts down sometimes and not talk during the match. and sometimes he makes string of good comments. I think he knows what he is talking about but it is hard to follow him sometimes. What do you guys think ?

Think he's highly entertaining. He is so matter of fact and doesn't mince his words.

He's better than most. And he is good at keeping his commentary less intrusive. He offers some good tactical opinions at times.

OK have people gotten together here just to wind me up? He is terrible, no possible other argument.

Becker is a chameleon as a commentator. His punditry is usually very good, though.

The best commentators, as far as ex-players go, are Wilander and Courier.

Another example of how insular and inbred the tennis world is, having an equipment CEO doing commentary. It's like having the president of Ford doing commentary for a NASCAR race.

Not as big a fan of him as a commentator as I was of him as player but I do like that he doesn't get in the way of match like so many others do so even though his not my favorite I don't mind him at all since he does not detract from the match.

Becker is brilliant because he makes quality comments, rather than just talking to fill air.

Courier talks way too much, and is a romantic *******..

His voice and accent are terrible. The Fed-Benneteau match was a nightmare and his comments only made it worse!
I agree with Mustard, Wilander is great, he exaggerates sometimes and he is not very good with predictions but he is so much fun to listen to!

I like him, he is one of the best commentators we get in the UK.

Wilander I agree is great, very confident and intelligent.

Courier has the worst accent in television history. Becker's accent is one of the best in my opinion..

Agree that Becker is wonderful, better than Andrew Castle (who talks too much!)
