My Ears Hurt From Espn 2

horrible coverage. my ears hurt. here's why:

1. commentators were very biased and unprofessional throughout the match. you could completely tell they were praying for venus to win.

2. cliff called venus serena like four times

3. i could totally hear the guys behind the scenes talking about technical issues for a couple of games.

Monica Seles | Martina Hingis | Anna Kournikova

1. American Tv, they want American's to win. Like most other countries commentators, want their players to win.
2. Cliff is getting old, and forgets alot of things
3. Espn always has technical difficulties.
p.s. at least we get to see live tennis, unlike many unlucky people in other countries.

well of course they're praying for Venus to win cuz if she loses no more Americans left in the draw and more importantly no more big draw names left (i.e. sharapova, hingis, Serena, Mauresmo, Henin). Oh and you might want to change your thread title. It says my "hears" hurt.

Re: My Ears Hurt From Espn 2

it's better than the tennis channel where they don't show women's matches.

I KNOW, he's so bad these days. It's pathetic. He can't go more than three words without mis-speaking.

Re: My Ears Hurt From Espn 2

After trading tennis matches with other countries and viewing tennis coverage from other countries, I have to say I appreciate ESPN more. However, yes Cliff does get on my nerves. He either asks stupid questions or confuses break points with game points or match points.

Cliff DOES get on my nerves. He's too old to function, and he had to take a break on one of the coverages.

Re: My Ears Hurt From Espn 2

They're helping you train your mental focus:
*Block out external noises
*Focus on the tennis


Be HAPPY you are getting telecast of the matches coz there are many with want to watch but can't.

Re: My Ears Hurt From Espn 2

Jeff which countries are you talking about? i think Oz and UK commentary for tennis matches abroad is way better then here in the US. those guys clam up when tennis games are in play. i can't stand commentators who keep talking during play. its like being in a movie theater and trying to watch the movie while idiots are talking.
