Favorite commentators

there was a thread on least favorite commentator, so why not your favorite.
I like Mary Joe Fernandez and Pam Shriver, they're smart and have good tennis analysis and i agree with what they say for the most part.

Re: Favorite commentators

Martina has shown a lot of improvement with the AO. She's been a lot less negative this time.

I like MJ Fernandez, Dick Enberg, and (dare I say) Mary Carillo because she makes me laugh.

Re: Favorite commentators

I love Pam and MJF, especially when they are together! I like that they were top players and still know the players - MJF spoke about Lindsay, Jen, Monica, etc., which is super-funky.

Let them eat cake.

Re: Favorite commentators

Mary Jo
Cliff Drisdale even though he mixes up Venus and Serena
Dick Enberg
Mary Carillo even though some times I don't agree with her.

Re: Favorite commentators

^ Agreed. Pam and MJF really balance each other nicely.

I hate pretty much all the men. They don't know what they're talking about and it makes me irritated because casual fans hear them and think it's truth. Like Bud Collins when he gets people losses/names etc. wrong. Fowler is really bad, even though he's not a commentator but more of a host. Fowler just doesn't know anything about the sport! [ He does College Football and when CFB isn't on, ESPN makes him do tennis. ]

Re: Favorite commentators

Mary Carillo, Virginia Wade, Virginia Rizuici (think that's how you spell her name). Pam Shriver is growing on me. John McEnroe is really fun to listen to as well. Jim Courrier is also pretty decent.

All, however, are unbearable when Federer plays because they continuously lick his nutsack.

I'm also really enjoying Darren Cahill in the commentating booth as well. Nice addition to the team, if it's only for the Aussie Open anyways.
