On going into commentary:
I think to be a good commentator, you have to stay really involved in the game. Otherwise, you grow disconnected to it as it morphs and changes and gets better. When I was leaving the game, the spins and the Nadals, Federers and the way they can make the ball do whatever they want was something I experienced. So I can talk about it quite extensively.Class act all the way. He is still someone I admire.
But all of the sudden, you start seeing guys who come out. They are different kinds of players. They are bigger. They are stronger and I haven’t competed against them, so to really talk about it in an educated way, you have to be out there. So it’s a lot more to me than just showing up and talking about tennis. I don’t really do anything halfway anymore in my life.
I kind of commit to something or don’t, and leaving the family and traveling to go stay connected to the game in a way that allows me to talk about it the way I would like is just much more of a commitment than I can afford to take on at this time.
