Thumbs down Tired of frumpy, unattractive TV commentators!

While I'm looking forward to seeing some spectacular tennis on the AO courts I can't help but comment on the three "old hags" that are again offering up comments from the booth...Mary Jo Fernandez (for God's sake Mary cut your hair...the "hippie era" is over Mary Carillo has cut her hair but she must have had it "hacked" by a nearby "Bushman"...not looking good Mary and Pam Schriver looks so matronly...they should enlist her in the new "Make-over show!

Whining about commentator looks... that's a new one.

Women's tennis sucks.

Re: Tired of frumpy, unattractive TV commentators!

Dunno what its like in the US, but here you might see the commentators once or twice in a match (if at all) so I hardly think their looks are relevant. I would rather listen to someone who's not very attractive who has a lot of knowledge about the sport, then someone who is nice to look at but doesn't know a damn thing

Re: Tired of frumpy, unattractive TV commentators!

Indeed! I want my tennis commentators to be six-foot tall supermodels! I want the same of my government leaders! They should all look like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie! I also want all authors, journalists, teachers, waitresses, mailmen, florists, and, yes, professional athletes to be utterly gorgeous! I care nothing of substance! Give me style! Throw all of those who are average-looking-but-good-at-their-job to the lions!

Even though I have never seen you before, I can say with 100 percent certainly that Ms. Fernandez, Ms. Carillo and Ms. Shriver are all infinitely more beautiful than you are.

taking that thought one step further:

I haven't heard Cahill yet

We only get Tracy for the AO... for the other slams we have to put up with the likes of Fred Stolle and Kerryn Pratt
