For me, the problem with Becker is his English accent. It's just makes him sound so dull that i don't really listen to him. But much worse, and i liked her as a player: Novotna. The verbal equivalent of nails on a blackboard. Re Evert, I like her accent which is pleasing on the ears. My favourite is Jo Durie (eurosport/bbc) who speaks with a pleasant lilt but also with knowledge and humour. I'm English so maybe that influences my preferences.
Shes the most competitive athlete Ive ever played against, without any question.-BJK on Evert, 1987
