I prefer BG. He spends a lot of timing ranting about useless stuff, but at least he does not deliver huge monologues about how classy, amazing, sexy, and talented Federer/Nadal/Djokovic are.
He was also saying few years back when Fed beat Nadal at WTF how that match shouldn't count because conditions completely neutralize Nadal's game or something to that effect.

Not saying that tennis commentator can't have her/his biases but it is inexcusable for them to act like love stricken fanboys.
