Sorry to all you Wimbledon watchers…….. each year that passes, his twang and arrogance,

You can't be serious etc, just grates.

Yes I can put the sound off and watch sub titles………. its not the same

I think he's a good commentator. hmm

And has a certain good-mannered charm.

I find him incredibly funny; always prefer the games that he commentates on. Who would have thought years ago that he and Gary Lineker would be as good talking about their sport as playing it. Interesting that MacEnroe thinks the rules need to change [although I wouldn't understand enough about tennis to know what he was talking about].

Oh jollyg I just love Mac he is witty and charming and he certainly knows his stuff

The thing is, he doesn't take himself seriously and I love people like that.

Watching now with sound off. Better now

He has an easy charm and wit about him .... who'd have thought that the spoilt brat of the 80s would turn out so nice!

I love him! Often the only thing I tune into Wimbledon for.

(And I loved him when he was a little cutie spoilt brat.)
