The Week of Badness

Annabel Croft commentating in Dubai!

I dread Dubai coming on the air at times, because i know that nauseating woman will be on. God she's so inept

What really drives me mad is her stupid phrases:

'Isnt it?'

'Wasnt it?'

'Out here'

'Out there on the court!'

Stop using rhetorics........

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGHHH, she drives me insane

In those post-match interviews as well, she always asks the players for tips on their biggest weapon. It's just random, random, random.

Please get the horse-woman off the air

Re: The Week of Badness

She's soooo unbelieveably annoying that's she is almost good to listen too

I hate her but have come to love her in some way, she's just so ditsy.


I really did hate her last year at Wimb when she was commentating on Marion and her accent

She starts coining words mid-match too

She used the word 'biffing' yesterday- WTF?!

Can anyone tell me why Eurosport employed her and David Mercer for the entire tournament?

I don't mind her as a commentator.

However, as a presenter she is just

Re: The Week of Badness

After watching the on-court interviews of Carine Lima (or whatever her name was) in Paris last week I can guarantee you that she made Croft look like the best journalist evah. She came up with the gems like "You've got a wide smile" to Sprem or "Oh, you're Italian!" to Schiavone. Serena while being interviewed she didn't even bother looking at her, she just wanted to get away from her.

biffing

Oh do not get me started on David Mercer!! Him and Barry Davis are really the lowest of the low of tennis commentators. I hate David Mercer's need to update us on the ace/df count EVERY time someone hits one.

omg i love her then the British commentators are my favs of them all i love it when she says "that's HUGE" or "that's scary good" . Portugal has like 5 commentators and imo only 1 is good one of them even screamed YES when Vee missed the FH on match point against Navarro (yeah i'm still bitter about it )

Re: The Week of Badness

This thread is so funny..

Croft can be very dizzy, but I've decided to have fun with her..

The brazilian commentator is a mad Dementieva fan. In the Paris final, when Dementieva got broken for the second time in the third set, he kept saying.. C'mon Elena, fight! Break her back, it's your chance to turn the match around!

Mental Strength is an underrated ability, it sets champions apart

Making mistakes is human, repeating them is dumb.

What I write is my opinion, and my opinion only.

Oh, sometimes bias can be so funny from commentators, especially if their fav is losing

The French can go crazy:

'ALLEZ'

Re: The Week of Badness

miss crofts latest thing she got in her head is 'the balls are really flying', ever time a player hits a wild error the balls are 'flying' off the racket. if shes said it once this week shes said it 20 times.

she now mentions the balls are 'flying' in every match lomao
