Wimbledon Commentators BBC

Am I the only person who can't stand this Sue Barker? She is horrible!

I know she was a former player. What were her career highlights?

I think that the mixture of all the old stars commenting is a good thing. I really love that. Jimmy Connors, John McEnroe and Martina Navratilova are always great to listen to.

Although I don't blame Boris Becker and Michael Stich for their English, that is okay and fine, I think both of them come across a bit wooden sometimes.

I really like listening to Tracy Austin. In my opinion she is the best of them all. All her little stories about her career and the past. Things we would have never known otherwise...

Winning a grand slam title. Albeit one where the other top 17 players weren't playing.

Re: Wimbledon Commentators BBC

Yeah she was the 1976 french open champion and wimbledon semi finalist in 1977. I think she got to #4 in the world.

Re: Wimbledon Commentators BBC



Sue Barker is a legend!!!

Not only was she a top player, but she's a superb tv presenter, regarded in the business as one of the best. It's a damn difficult job presenting live tv like she does, she's great.

Re: Wimbledon Commentators BBC

I've never heard her, but I have heard Virginia Wade. I liked her alot.

However, Tracy Austin is the best...although Mary Jo Fernandez has come a very long way and she's my second favorite. She's insightful, and knows of what she speaks!

Re: Wimbledon Commentators BBC

I LOVE Sue ! Wimbledon wouldn't be the same without her.

She did win the French Open but you don't have to have a great career in order to be a great presenter.

Re: Wimbledon Commentators BBC

Sue

Best live sports presenter on TV. Easily.

And as for Greg Rusedski...GET HIM OFF OUR SCREENS, NOW. He is the worst commentator I have ever heard.

I am not joking when I say I put it on mute when he is on. He is THAT bad. He makes me cringe.

I know just--just what you are--ah-ah.


I like the way that you taste, when you're all up in my face.
