Bautista Agut vs. Mmoh has the meanest commentators

About RBA:

"people respect him.... not really a great shotmaker..or tennis player.. he's a nice guy...not many people play with his intensity tho..people have capabilities he maxes his.."

smh

This is a player who has beaten the Big 4
This is a top 10 player
A Wimbledon semifinalist

they should show more respect

About Mmoh:

"how is it possible that you can't volley properly..its the easiest shot in tennis"
"gimme 30 minutes with him...I'll show him"

why they so mean!
Who were the commentators? It's nice to have some honesty rather than endless Robbie Conegg unreeeeals during mediocre matches.

I saw RBA making a Wimbledon final more about the current state of Wimbledon than an achievement by RBA, who is basically exactly as described.

If Mmoh is the guy I saw at the Brisbane International last year (I think he is), then the comments about him are also on the money.

No-one seems to care when it's pointed out that Isner and Karlovic rely on their big serves (the most important shot in tennis), why can't it also be pointed out that 90% of the tour are completely inept inside the service box?

Mmoh made QFs from qualifying at Brisbane’18, beating Delbonis and Mischa Zverev before losing to AdM.

Is Sandgren not sponsored?
He looks dressed like a casual TT 4.5er out there
somehow looks like he wasn't sponsored.
and when he reached the 1/4 at AO, and some sponsoring was possible, people went over his social media accounts, and there were some bold opinions on controversial topics, unlike the polished images of the Big 3, so no, it's not that likely that big brands will sponsor him.

not sure, think Jarrko Nieminen is one of them

i want commentators to talk about the match, not trash talk players instead

The apparel is from an Aussie company and is available at TW’s affiliate Tennis Only.

Honestly, I am not a big fan of this new 10 points TB, the change is too drastic for AO, even if they want to adopt the TB format, then just 7-point TB like in a regular set. What's benefit of the extra 3 points in a tiebreak? there is no purpose at all.

Not all the tournaments need it some variety is nice
Except you invariably run into the match with a big server that goes an extra 2/3 hours, in addition the extended playtime adds risks of injuries and produces average play due to exhaustion. It's better for player welfare and quality imo.
