Lindsay has a pleasant broadcasting voice.
Mary is blonde.
Jennifer is Jennifer.

Either three of them could do it. However, it might take wrestling Mary Carillo out of her broadcast booth chair and kicking her in the stomach to have the opportunity.

No Davenport. Not enough entertaining.
Pierce talks about God and that's it.

Maybe Jennifer.

For Europe, Myskina could be good when she retires

Pierce's overt religiosity is so annoying and imo she is one of the most boring personalities imaginable. That doesn't disqualify her from tennis commentating though.

I don't think Capriati would be interested. So Davenport would be the best choice out of those 3. Chanda Rubin would be better than all of them.

I don't think Lindsay will be willing to travel around the country, let alone to the slams, to be a regular commentator. Once she retires, I think she's going to live a quiet life and start a family and be done with tennis.

I can imagine Lindsay being a guest commentator at the US Open in the future.

LOL.

Capriati is practically illiterate if you merely listen to her press conferences. "Umm...like...uhhh..."...Jennifer in the booth? Please.

I could see Lindsay doing a great job, though.

So true about Jennifer.

I agree. Lindsay would be fantastic.

Lindsay DEFINATELY, Sharapova (if she's not busy w/ other endeavors), and Mary too

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.

Lindsay has hinted at it, but she isn't going to travel all over the place either. But I can see her doing commentarty during the So-Cal Events and the US Open.
I also agree that Chanda would be a great commentator too.
