Ted Robinson is an idiot

I'm watching the Toronto final, and he says "This could be the first time Justine has won the first set against Jankovic in their rivalry." Now, I know that they have stats and head to heads at their disposal when they're on the air...but I had a feeling that Justine had won a first set before against Jankovic, and:

2007 WARSAW CLAY (O) S J. HENIN 7-5 2-6 6-4

I'm right.

Can this man not read or something?

Anyway, this thread is about any other mistakes he has made on the air in reference to women's tennis.

HA!!!! Exactly. That's the other thing that bugs me with this man. Yes, Sharapova's good, but SHEESH! Comments like "I have never seen anyone hit this hard before" are ridiculous. And he always brings up the 2004 Wimbledon final EVERY TIME SHE'S ON THE AIR!

Re: Ted Robinson is an idiot

I remember at San Diego when Maria won a match, she mentioned she was going to the beach.

Ted Robinson laughed mentioning that she didn't tell anyone which beach she was going to.

And then I laughed because if she would have mentioned it, then Ted Robinson would have been the first one there all out in the open jacking off in some 5 year old khaki shorts.

Something needs to change.

Re: Ted Robinson is an idiot

It's just been a fucked up week/weekend for people who can't stand certain tennis commentators.

Tracy Austin was commentating on the tennis channel.
Ted Robinson is commentating on ESPN II.
Mary Carillo is commentating on CBS.

It might as well be called Hell Week aka Mute week for some fans of tennis.

Re: Ted Robinson is an idiot

Most of the commentators are idiots. Rarely do they know what they are talking about, despite being on the tour themselves.

Re: Ted Robinson is an idiot

Everyone makes mistakes. I remember during the AO final this year, Dick Enberg flat out said Serena had won there the last two times she played, saying that she missed it in 06.

Thank God for small mercies! Venus, Serena and Maria weren't playing otherwise that would be rubbing salt in the wound.

Honestly though the execs obviously have no respect for tennis when they allow Ted Robinson to commentate especially during a final.

If not Ted, then whom?

Serena didn't play the Aussie in '06.
