Gilbert is an entertaining commentator. I think he is right up there with JMac, the best.

On Gilmelstob's propensity to dive on the court: "I am glad he didn't have to dive today. I noticed that after he dived, he only won 4% of the points."

Gimelstob's diving is pretty common. He has a volley within arm's length and he just has to dive for it. Pretty interesting to watch a few times but his shirt gets pretty messed up.

Gilbert's pretty funny. I like his commentaries and his sense of humor. However, his predictions of match outcomes are just horrible...lol. I can't even remember how many times he was wrong. During the French Open, he picked Dickie Gasquet to beat Nalby. Considering Gasquet came back from injuries and had a horrible overall year record under his belt.
Despite that, I like Gilbert on the commentary box.

If you think his predictions are bad, there is a new ESPN commentator who is worse. When asked what her predictions for male and female Wimby 2006 champions will be, her reply was: Federer and Hewitt. :rolleyes:

You cannot be serious! Is this a joke or is there really a new ESPN commentator who said that? :eek:

Hewitt is a woman? I don't think so! That is unfair.

I think he aims to shock. He predicted that Feder would lose, and if so, in the first couple of days.

But he is smart. He knows that if he predicts the obvious nobody will pay attention. And if he is right on a dark horse, he will look really smart. He would be a good coach if he wasn't so busy selling himself. Players don't like his loud mouth, but it is perfect for TV. He should do it permanently.

This is just brilliant. It had to be Mary Gorillo. Who was it?
