Tim Ryan. He's barely passable for a tennis commentator and he's been doing it for over 25 years. He should know more than he does. NBC at the 2004 Olympics put him on equestrian. I guess they didn't feel like listening to him and his mistakes during the olympic tennis matches. He still mixes up Serena and Venus. How is that possible? I wonder if Jim Courier was any better though. Tim obviously didn't know anything about equestrian but I think NBC decided it was a good idea for people to hear a familiar voice commentate. Mary Carillo was put basically on a pedestial during those Olympics. She even commentated for the Olympic ending ceremonies. I thought it was great for Mary even though sometimes she can be a bitch. How long can you milk winning a couple of mixed doubles slams?
