Most annoying wimbledon commentator (in studio hosts included!)

It's got to be the in-studio Suzy Kolber...does this woman know ANYTHING about tennis at all, or does she just use her annoying voice and plastic personality to read off the teleprompter?

also, though not nearly as annoying, Tim Ryan gets the score wrong at least 10 times when doing a match

Over here in France we've got Anne-Gaelle Sidot who has obviously no brain, her pityful commentary and her stupid laugh have spoiled a couple of weeks of great tennis
Actually, she was convinced Henin has already won Wimbledon ...

In general, Sport+ commentators were totally retarded during this Wimbledon, and Anne-Gaelle wasn't a help, that's for sure ...

Brad Gilbert makes stupid comments and predictions when it comes to American players having "easy bake oven" matches and "Betty Crocker" draws. Half the time he's wrong.

Dick Enberg is even worse about remembering the score. I seriously wonder if DE is so old he's starting to get senile.

Haven't listed to Dick enberg that much, so I can't say, but Tim Ryan gets the score wrong when it says it on the screen! It'll say 0-30 and he'll say it's 15-30 or 30-30.

I also don't see the need for the commentating "sidekick," the one who was not a former player, such as ted robinson, tim ryan etc... All they do is tell us what the score is and ask obvious questions of the more knowledgable former player commentator.

Even worse are the in-studio people--utterly useless. Suzy Kolber was aksing Pam Shriver about the williams sisters possibly meeting in the quarters before Pam had to tactfully correct her that it would be the 4th round. Give a former player that job too--please!

Well, if it weren't for Ted, there would have been complete silence for large stretches during Venus' last two matches cause Mary wasn't saying anything. (Too busy stuffing crow into her mouth, I suppose.)

Dick is great but, he is making some unforgiving mistakes some times.
I speculate that is why he was not rehired back by NBC and got stuck with the likes of Brad and PMac,
I remember another incident where not he misstate the score, but he kept calling Venus Serena.
I must say, I love his voice when he gets it right and when he does those features segments about the city, the people or historic places.
He is good for set pieces, little unsure about live action
I love how he says "Oh my.."

Dick Enberg is seriously the worst tennis commentator of all. He rarely, if ever, gets the score right.

If not even mistaken, in the second game of the second set of Venus' match vs. Sharapova, everytime the point would be on the Deuce-side of the court, he'd claim Sharapova was on her third or fourth breakpoint or something. I was like, man, it's deuce moron.

I swear, I can't even count how many times he has gotten the score wrong, or said something totally wrong in general.

Stick to football, it's the only thing you're good at.

i didn't like jimmy connors, often times you could tell too clearly who he was supporting, yes i know lots of them are biased but it bugged me. and him with tracy austin was just the worst. Boris was the best, plus his suit was too funny.
