The meanest in match commentator quote?

I remember during the Serena vs Zheng match, one of them asked Mary Carillo "What does Jie need to do to win?"

And Mary said "Grow."

Maria Sharapova

Re: The meanest in match commentator quote?

Mary Carillo loves listening to herself talk. She'll bash the Williamses and then praise them 2 matches later after they are in the finals.

Re: The meanest in match commentator quote?

Oh Carillo's needlessly an arsehole most of the time. She once said 'Mauresmo played like a dog', in reference to her losing to Serena at the Aussie in '05.

One of the most inappropiate comments was from Chris bailey during the RG final in '05:

' I am not a Mary Pierce fan'

Talk about keeping it impartial

"I still think Maria's the better player."-Mary Carillo comparing Maria to Serena

Not mean but...so partial .

Re: The meanest in match commentator quote?

^ Yeah, I remember Mary Carillo saying that she still believed Maria was the better player after Serena beat her in the 05' Aus semis.

She also called Els Callens, Els "Elderly" Callens while commentating a match a few years ago. I think she was only like 31 at the time.

Then, in 2006, this was kind of funny, but Venus had lost in the 1st round in Austrailia that year, and Serena had just lost a set to Na Li. Mary Carillo said that this is the time in the match where Larry Scott goes "Whoa Na Li" in reference of both WS going out in the 1st round.

Re: The meanest in match commentator quote?

funny and mean, i think it was simon reed at wimbledon 'i remember seeing chakvetadze as a junior and she was just heart attack material, i thought no way would she ever make it' refering to her mood swings.

and sam smiths take 'i remember chakvetadze as a junior would be crying floods of tears on court, and it was only the warm up' lol

That's pretty constructive opinion to Jie Zheng.
