Why has tennis analyst Pam Shriver been relegated to Mal Washington's courtside job?

Why has International Tennis Hall of Fame member and long time ESPN/ESPN2 tennis analystPam Shriver been relegated to Mal Washington's courtside job? I don't get it. Match analysis is Shrivers strength. But to be turned into a sideline reporter for ESPN/ESPN2 is not right in my opinion. She just had her first baby last summer and she should have stayed home instead of doing this.

I like Mary Carillo and her edgy, sarcastic and knowledgable style. But she is driving some of the Williams sisters fans crazy with her criticisms of the Williams sisters games! I'm not saying Shriver should be the lead analyst on ESPN/ESPN2. But she should be the analyst on atleast 1 match a day otherwise it's not worth the hassle as a new mother for her to travel all the way to Australia to work from courtside like Mal Washington or roam the grounds like Michael Barkann does for the USA Network at the U.S. Open.

Good point Pam.
