Having Courier and Macaveney continually talking throught the active game and even between points talking verbal diarrhoerasimply urges me to go elsewhere. Any Bruce is not a know tennis title winner. Why no the 2 woodies, Roger or some of the Aussie players like rafter etc. Send Courier back to the US and let us once enjoy a terrific 7 telecast without these morons

I have had enough. Someone get Bruce off and now I am sick of Courier too. They talk as if the players are technical brainiacs. The court is fast, the ball is too hot, the strings are too soft, the wind is blowing blah blah blah. All I see is 2 players hitting the ball and then 1 wins and 1 loses.  For God's sake if they weren't tennis players they could perform heart transplants. That's the impression I get.

When I switch on the tennis ( or any sport actually) and hear Bruce MacAvaney commentating it is a sigh of disappointment from me - he commentary is full of cliches and useless statistics. I would prefer silence.

   I'm glad I'm not the only one who wants the self-opinionated token US commentator left in the US. I enjoy my sport, including tennis, but know-it-alls like Courier give me the gripes. I am also fed up with wondering if 'this could be a pivotal moment'. Please, give us all a break and find a more appropriate key phrase.
   Lets have more of Lleyton and Todd and other recent players who know what they're talking about and less of those who were or who would like to have been. Tennis, as with other sports, has changed over the last twenty years but it is still a pleasure to watch. Lets keep it that way and not spoil the pleasure.

Renee Stubbs has got to go as well! What was her comment in the first game of the 3rd set today - 'this has been the best game of this set so far!'

I've actually had to turn the tennis off a couple of times during this Australian Open as the commentary has been so bad!

every now and then in almost every match i have seen you can hear someone in the background mentioning some stat or facts about whoevers playing...and then 5 seconds later one of the commentators says exactly what I just heard. So basically there's someone there feeding them info and it's not them who are the know it alls...Parrots

Jim is saying everything that everyone know already
Bruce is saying what ever the script in front of him 
Lleyton is "come on", if you are that good and analytical while you were playing, then you are there playing not commentating.

I Think Bruce is fine, although its tough to get a word in when Jim's in the booth, to many people wanting air time. Sam Smith says very irrelevant stuff, i don't understand half of what she's talking about . I like Todd and Renee

Loving having Hewitt in the commentators box!! Thumbs up for not being annoying and being easy to understand and listen to.

Also loving Leighton, his comments are relevant and easy to understand. Great to have his perspective given that he played Djokovic only a week ago, gives his insight more weight...

Absolutely loving having Leighton Hewitt on commentary. He's intelligent, knowledgable and confident. A breath of fresh air to tennis commentary. I hope his tennis playing career lasts a lot longer because he's such an entertaining player and a great rep of Aussie tennis but im now sure that he has a great future in entertaining us off court too. Thank you Leighton

Why does McAvaney persist with rattling off boring, irrelevant stats, one after the other? They have absolutely no bearing on the outcome of this final.

PLEASE get rid of Bruce Mac from the commenting team. He has nothing of value to add. He has no tennis credibility. While some may complain about Jim C at least he has played the game and very successfully in his day. I am tired of listening to presenters who have not treaded the courts. Get rid of them and employ someone who knows what they are talking about!

Can someone from channel seven read this - for Bruce the correct pronunciation of Tomic is not pronounced TOMIK - it's like saying the word itch - I can't understand why it is hard for him to say - he says Tipsarevic with an itch - why not extend your intellect to understand the similarity with Tomic - another Australian Open with the sound down.....

Too much talk from commentators all the time and Renne Stubbs is worse than Jim and Bruce. How Jim can state a foot fault without being fully in line..... Mostsportscommentaors are just plain amateurs.

I have been complaining about the American aaahole for years but C7 don't care. Why don't they use Australian commentators? We have plenty of high quality people who aren't 'up themselves'. This is an Australian national event. There is no way the americans would tolerate Austrlians taking over the role for their coverage.

Maybe they could stick to commenting about tennis. They talk about squash shots when they clearly know nothing about squash. A squash shot is with a locked wrist with no spin.

In general, great commentary, BUT WHY oh why must Bruce Mac also be commentating? What is so wrong with leaving the commentary to Tennis experts? They can handle it by themselves.

I agree with most comments.  Get rid of McAvaney.  I am so sick of his "isn't it", "wasn't it", "hasn't it", "didn't it".  How much tennis did he play?  He has no idea what he is talking about and it is very obvious.  Jim Courier has a bit of verbal diarrohea and I feel sure that there are Australian commentators who could do a much better job. John Fitzgerald is a pleasure to listen to.  He is also a big pain when he commentates the AFL.

Jim Courier and Bruce MacAvaney absolutely ruin the tennis for TV viewers.  We turn the sound down,  but it takes the life out of the telecast .  Those two are so rude,  they talk through play at times and go on with a lot of drivel between EVERY point,  the incessant drone, particularly of Courier is absolutely awful, an assault on the ears.  Commentators need only comment between games,  and then only briefly.
