4.0 out of 5 stars Good souvenir of great triumph
This is good value as it includes the whole match & you don't have to sit through annoying adverts breaking the flow of the match. The commentary is from an American station & is ok rather than brilliant. I can't award 5 stars because you can't hear the questions at the added press conferences at the end, only the replies. Still it brings back memories of the great...

3.0 out of 5 stars Males you realise how good the BBC is
I bought this so that I had some chance of seeing Andy Murray's first Grand Slam win, as I don't subscribe to Sky. It arrived very quickly and was well packaged. My only problem is with the coverage itself. The (US) commentary is unnispiring and the crowd noise does not come across. Its not Amazon's fault, nor the DVD's but it does remind you, if you needed it, how...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good souvenir of great triumph, 8 Jan 2013

This review is from: The US Open 2012--Men's Singles Final [DVD] (DVD)
This is good value as it includes the whole match & you don't have to sit through annoying adverts breaking the flow of the match. The commentary is from an American station & is ok rather than brilliant. I can't award 5 stars because you can't hear the questions at the added press conferences at the end, only the replies. Still it brings back memories of the great victory of Andy Murray not just over Djokovic but over his own demons. He put all the doubters in their place. Watching the DVD knowing the result is good makes for easier viewing than it was at 2.30 am on a Tuesday morning.

My only problem is with the coverage itself. The (US) commentary is unnispiring and the crowd noise does not come across. Its not Amazon's fault, nor the DVD's but it does remind you, if you needed it, how good the BBC is. Of course we now have the Olympics and Wimbledon wins to watch, recorded here by the beeb.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dull commentary...., 9 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The US Open 2012--Men's Singles Final [DVD] (DVD)
What should be an unmissable record of a historic triumph serves (sic) to be a dull monotonous disappointment.
The American commentators struggle to sound remotely interested in the match, typified by the (delayed) reaction to the final point as if "oh I guess we should say something....."
This dvd would be so much better if the commentary could be muted or changed. Let the buyer beware.

This review is from: The US Open 2012--Men's Singles Final [DVD] (DVD)
First off, this DVD has everything, from the moment these two great players come to court to the post-match trophy presentation. If like me you had relied on your Sky+ to record the match only to have the final moments snatched away by a channel change then this DVD fits the bill.

Takes a while to get used to the American commentators but they are actually so much more measured and less hysterical than the UK ones so that's actually a bonus. The sound from courtside is much clearer so you can hear all of Andy's mutterings... :-)

A bonus is the full post-match press conferences for both players.

And of course it was a brilliant match!

As a fan of Andy Murray, it was really nice to watch this match which I was unable to see at the time.
This is of course an American production and the commentary makes that very obvious. The latter is the reason it gets three stars rather than four or five. (Who is mister Joh-koh-vitch?)
In spite of suggestions that the DVD is of highlights, it does feature the entire match.

This was Andy's first grand slam win - and I was only able to follow it via the radio. So it's great to see the actual match - got the DVD at a good price too.

I ordered the Andy Murray DVD because I was on holiday when it was played and though I knew the result I wanted to watch the match, well worth it
