Johanna Griggs

In my opinion, she doesn't present the Medibank International well at all. She doesn't know a thing about tennis, and always looks down to check her paper so see what the players names are This morning she had a bad cough, which isn't exactly professional when reading out results

I find her annoying, but she's back for another year


What do you guys reckon?

Actually, they have been doing the presentation weird this year, usually when they are giving the draw, or the scores, they put them up on the screen, and don't show the presenter reading their paper! Johanna's been doing the tennis for a couple of years no, and me and my friend saw her at the AO last year. I don't think she's that bad!

I think she's got a lovely fresh face but yeah totally agree she doesn't know anything about tennis and years later her knowledge hasn't improved one bit. Same as the other show she hosts auction squad, she's just the face but has no idea about anything else, and when giving interviews to players or people on auction squad it deffinately looks like she's only saying what's written. She never really seems interested but she's always got a big smile on her face like she's ready to laugh and ready to cut the person off to say her next line.

Karen Tighe who did the Hopman Cup was excellent, particularly in the interviews.

karen tighe is actually a journalist whereas griggs is just an ex-swimmer who's the face of channel 7.

i think she actually does have a speech impediment though and that's why she often stubbles over sentences and names. she is much better when she just speaks and doesn't try and read auto-text etc. there are better people but i would say she has at least improved.

karen tighe is one of the countries most respected sports journalists and IMO is infinitely better than griggs who is just so channel 7 it is not funny.

She's really beefed up her tan. Now she doesn't look half bad.

@ Amanda Stevenson.
