Danny D commentating US Open finals? - 10-28-2017, 01:13 PM

So there's a long thread singing the praises of Jeremy Jones' commentating ability. The semifinal now has Danny DiLiberto in the booth. Will he be doing the finals as well?

Suffice to say there are no threads singing the praises of Danny D's commentating.

Danny is "old school" who has never embraced "new school." I think he is still competent but his best days were with Billy in years gone by.

Definitely JJ won’t be commentating in the final. He said on his last match, that he was getting on a plane back home Sat morning.

Danny is past his time. It's a snoozefest with him and Wilson, and he makes the wrong call about half the time. Now he's making fun of Albania...

Danny d offers nothing in the booth except bad calls and obvious remarks about how the shot lies.

“It doesn’t pass”.... (30 seconds later) “it passed”

“He’s going two rails” .... (30 second later) “he banked it”

I don't mind listening to Danny and Mark, even though it is very low key. Mark has a good voice and is an excellent com as long as he doesn't get too long winded or too technical. Danny makes a good foil for him. They are damn sure a lot better than some of the people I hear on some of the streams. You know the ones, who are laughing, giggling and not even paying attention to the match. To busy giving shout outs to their friends online. I mute the volume when I hear that nonsense going on.

Danny is surely not the best but I've heard quite a few a LOT worse. Only a very few make the right call more often than Danny. There's one guy that says "wow" and "actually" so much I won't even watch a muted match if he's there!

Well imho there were at least 2 other commentators on regularly lately that were way more annoying than Danny. Danny to me is just neutral background noise. Plus -they have been keeping his mic on low.

What ever happened to Billy I. doing commentary?

I’ve been out of the loop a while, so I apologize if this is common knowledge why he isn’t commentating anymore.
