Virginia Wade, Jo Durie and Jimmy Connors.

I think Jimmy is the best male commentator. He is so great. So much better than McEnroe.

John McEnroe and Jimmy Connors are my faves. I also really like Jo Durie and Virginia Wade (Ginny is hilarious! )

I cannot stand Simon Reed though!

I thought Virginia was excellent, very fair

When you believe, somehow you will. You will, when you believe.

Your mind will take you far. The rest is just pure heart. Youíll find your fate is all your own creation.

Thereís so much strength in all of us, every woman, child, and man.
Itís the moment that you think you canít - youíll discover that you CAN.

Pam doesn't even work for the BBC does she?

I voted Chris Bailey under other. I love him.

Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.

Jimmy Connors. I've really enjoyed listening to him. Others are Jo Durie, Tracy Austin and Louise Pleming.

Jo Durie is the best of them all - she's my favourite. I also like Viginia Wade. Of the men commentators I like John Mac and Jimmy Connors

for me the team on BBC Radio is alot better than the ones on TV (although some were on both).

Sticky (Stich) and Woody (Woodbridge) were great together
still no one beats Frew McMillan.

Good luck to my favs

One of the British ones like Joe Durie or Chris Bradnam are pretty good i think, fair and interesting to listen too, I think Pan Shriver is funny too and Jimmy Connors is good too except for when he keeps going "mmmmmm" after every point but he is still better than alot of the others add Chris Bailey and Sam Smith after those
