    Whoa...three minutes into the Youhzny-Agassi match, and PMac already brings up Roddick's 2003 Aussie career. I think that's a new record! As you guys probably know, I'm a firm Roddick supporter, but wow...PMac's wayyyyy overboard here.

    He also mentioned that Youhzny had the advantage over Roddick, and that Roddick came back to win.

    I generally don't care one way or the other what PMac says, but DANG!!! It's a shame how PMac's gushing over Roddick overshadows Roddick's success and abilities.

    Also, I love these commentators. Everytime Agassi hits a good shot or whatever, it's beautiful, perfect, years of experience, etc. Youzhny runs down everything and hits a big shot to win a point, and it's Agassi just wasn't expecting that. Wish I could just slap everyone of these announcers, then go and slap Agassi afterwards.

    Please let me know when you find out also. Comon Coria in the next round, he'll take him clay court style.

    In truth, PureCarlos, many of his shots are very beautifully crafted, and wonderfully executed. Of course, others are pure luck, and I too agree that the guys in the booth seem to forget which is which. By the way, since when did you begin going against Andre and Andy? If I remember correctly, you did support both last year ;-)

    Well, CBodom, that was a bit below the belt, especially as it wasn't true. I am going to be bashed for being a supporter of Roddick? Can't a guy have favorites to root for? You guys go ahead and root for Federer, I don't say anything to that...but can I go ahead and root for Roddick...is that okay with you, CBodom?

    Matt, I have always had a strong dis like for agassi. Roddick, I used to like him, until I saw him get ripped by Federer at Wimbledon. I was rooting for him a little after that, then he won the US Open, I started getting to watch him everyday, and I just lost any love I had. I don't hate him, I just don't really like his game at all. His strokes and fat serve are just too ugly for me. I'm down with my clay courters for sure, but Agassi, boot him as soon as possible please.

    I have always thought PMac is an idiot, just as Pam Shriver is.

    If I ever see PMAC in person, I'm gonna have to lay it straight to the guy about his constant manlove of Roddick-disgusting. I wonder if Johnny Mac realizes what his brother is doing every night over the mic?

    Where does your hate of Andre Agassi come from, PureCarlosMoyaDrive?

    Personally I couldnt find a tennisplayer who has promoted the sport any better than Agassi.....Also, Agassi is probably the most respected person/tennisplayer on the tour + he has behaved like a true champion both on and off court in the last 7-8 years. Which he didnt, in the beginning of his caree (sp)

    Just curious,
    Daniel

    I live a few blocks from the guy. Come crash on my couch and I'll be more than happy to give you a hand in case you want to start a rampage. Even better -- I could find you his hairdresser's phone number.

    Hypothetical question:say you were the US Davis Cup captain whose team's chances largely hinge on one player. Do you

    A)Kiss the player's ass once in a while, ensuring a good relationship with said player
    or
    B)Always speak your mind, tell it like it is, & risk alienating the player like your brother did to Sampras in 2000

    And as far as PMAC bringing up the 2003 Aussie Open win against Youzhny, I don't see how that was completely off topic since that was the only other time Youzhny was on US television.

    Calm down fans :wink: We all know what the game is. PMac needs A-Rod on his Davis Cup team. PMac also says nice things about the other D Cup teammates. He is trying to recruit and keep the team together. He has a vested interest in keeping A-Rod happy. Is that a conflict of interest that disqualifies him from the booth? I'll let you decide.

    I don't think it DQ's him from the booth. But it does get to be a bit much.

    OK, I see your point about brown-nosing, but that's not what is going on here. We can only assume that PMAC kisses AROD's ass at practice and in private. What does public worship over airwaves have to do with kissing crack? Is PMAC thinking Andy's friends/relatives will hear the public lust on tv and tell Andy "PMAC said some nice things about you", I really don't think that would float Andy's boat to have himself talked about the way PMAC does. If Andy is into what PMAC does over the mic, then he is one sick person.
