- Whether the spectators will be waiting for the broadcast or prefer something else to sports programs depends on how commentators cover the match – competently, simply and interestingly, keeping the attention of the audience. Tennis has been an integral part of my life since 7, and to become a tennis commentator is an old and, I thought, a pipe dream, Vadim Koltsov confessed.
