Katrina Adams is a horrible commentator

It is absolutely unbearable to listen to her. Her voice is so annoying and often sounds like she has no idea what she's talking about. She ruins a lot of these matches on the Tennis Channel. Corina Morariu is so much better and should just replace Adams full-time.

Re: Katrina Adams is a horrible commentator

Corina is a great commentator. She knows what she's talking about.

Katrina...eh...she's better than that John Burgess guy (oh I must say I wish Razzano would beat this Venus guhllll--that guy).

Corina and Chanda should be full-time commentators, Lindsay too when she's officially retired. Those three have great insight.

Re: Katrina Adams is a horrible commentator

Well I dunno if I like either... @ least today.

I especially don't like the person who called Serena an inexperienced vollyer and Sveta lack finesse.

And overrall they talk too much just like the majority of the American commentators and aren't really adding anything. (It really isn't necessary to mention Maria/Roger in every single ATP & WTA match, 'k thanks! )

Re: Katrina Adams is a horrible commentator

Give me Katrina over a lot of commentators. She doesn't spend a whole lot of time making personal assessments about players personal lives.

Re: Katrina Adams is a horrible commentator

I don't have a problem with Katrina Adams but Chanda Rubin is the cat's meow as far as I am concerned. Chanda's understanding of the game and the players is easily discernable.

You beat me to it.

Katrina and Leif Shiras are just...*looks around futilely for the "pee-yoo" icon*...

Chanda's the best they've got. I've only heard Corina once or twice, but I don't remember being disenChanda'd with her.

The guy I really can't stand, though, is Barry McKay. Note to Barry: we know what a fault is. You don't have to announce Every. Single. One.

The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes. Ps. 36:1

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Ps. 14:1, 53:1

Nooooooooo! You can't diss Barry Like Cliffy, Barry is a sweet older guy who tends to repeat himself, get Venus and Serena mixed up, and still calls Justine "Henin-Hardenne"! But that's o.k., because he means well and seems positive about ALL the players...


There's a bit of Justine in all of us.


"The great thing about Henin and Federer is that each of them is a beautiful player and a superior competitor, so the divide is effectively bridged. Have there ever been a pair of No. 1 players who so fully represent the abundantly gifted as well as the fully-ripened competitor?"

Re: Katrina Adams is a horrible commentator

Katrina is usually bearable, but for the Serena/Svetlana coverage, she seemed like she had no idea when they would show the reply and when the replay would stop.

Also, there isn't much chemistry between Corina and her.

-one of those "bad" Williams fans that everyone keeps talking about

Re: Katrina Adams is a horrible commentator

I like Chanda but I remember when she lost to Serena at Wimbledon the previous round and they had her commentate Serena's next match. Well, she started talking about how Serena tries to play "macho tennis" to instill fear in her opponents. I was like WTF?
