Practicing tennis with Tennys

I can’t STAND that announcer’s voice. Sounds like a cheap AM radio announcer.

    Miri: I know that voice is irritating. Reminds me of AM radio top ten disc jockey voice. “Well okay Debbie, we’ll try to get that request on for you”

      What request did you place with Roland Garros radio? “Do it to me one more time”? :)

      That voice is no other than Leif Shiras who I have the utmost “pleasure” of having to listen to on Sky Sports Tennis coverage here in the UK.

      I asked someone bout his voice and they tought he was Canadian? Anyone? Is he?

      How did I know it was going to be fucking Leif Shiras before I even played the video?! Ugh…the next Bud Collins. He comments with that Corina chick on TTC, and I could do without her as well. TTC should just keep Johnny Mac & Martina Navratilova. They’re the best ones, IMO. Esp Martina. She is so great and has good stuff to say.

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who finds the disc-jockey voice irritating as all hell. It’s like a fake American accent, you know?

    As a Canadian I think I can say with some certainty that NO Canadian announcer would ever pronounce Rafa name the way this man does. Definitely not a Canadian accent !
