    There are often discussions in the football arena of the Superbowl commercials so why not tennis commercials during the US Open. Does anyone else think the McEnroe dispute resolution commercial is great. I was caught by surprise at how creative and fitting the advertisement is. Great commercial.

    it made me chuckle the first time i saw it. it's only wednesday and i've seen it a ka-jillion times now, so i'm over it. of course, it beats all the other ads, esp. the idiotic roddick lexus commercial.

    hmmm . . . idiotic roddick. is that alliteration?

    no, that's rhyming. Alliteration would be "that loony Lexus...."

    alliteration is where you repeat a certain sound of a letter/syllable. Edgar Allen Poe was very good at this.

    Never mind with that heady stuff...RodDICK's commercial sucks...they always suck...Johnny Mac's is funny......Last night he said that he was proud of it but wasn't thrilled it was being played every 5 minutes....I don't care for Shriekapova but I love the commercial with the little dog with the Italian accent:)

    I like this commercial a lot. not enough to enjoy it after seeing it the 12th time, but it was great. while the roddick lexus commercial may not be good, i enjoyed the roddick v. pong commercial a year or two ago.

    I think this is a good commercial. I probably have seen it about 100 times by now.

    The Mac commercial is great. The new Roddick commercial stinks, but last years Pong commercial was great.

    I like it, myself. I liked the line: "I don't get to dispute it?" My only problem is that the hug is too long

    I haven't been able to watch the US Open so far but I caught the Blake vs. Santoro match (which was great) last night. I saw that commercial. It's great. I especially liked the "You're not evil!" part.

    Quoting my daughter about the Roddick commercial: "That's just retarded." Thought the McEnroe one was funny once I explained it.

    The hug seemed over long though yes, thought they would have panned away or faded before that LOL

    I think it's supposed to be...so it makes you just a little uncomfortable. :)
    Great directing.
    Great ad.


    I don't even understand the Roddick ad.
