What do French-speking people think of Golovin as a consultant on France Télévision ?

Although I hate France Television coverage (too much talk, Eurosport is better, well better when they don't play 2 hours 1/2 of fucking cycling), I must say I am pleasantly surprised. She's not too technical but she has some good insights and her French is now almost flawless. I expected some kind of slutty and inarticulate Tati, I was wrong. She's really charming, low-key and elegant. However she doesn't seem to be very upbeat about coming back on the Tour any time soon.

Seriously, she is useless. They should only let her do interviews with (ex) felow players (mainly to make russian speaking players laugh at her awful russian)

To be honest, it isn't... (Luyat is worse, a shame for a French native speaker)

What is so useless about her. From what i've heard from her she seems more insightful than 95% of the other commentators around the world. And she isn't actually a slut you know.

"Errors of language"...at least her French is better than your English I guess. She speaks French much better than Mary Pierce.

What's with the language stuff? Are we british now or something, what do we care how people speak?

As for Golovin, I don't know, she's just a talking head like all the others, neither better nor worse. I haven't noticed anything interesting or weird in the way she speaks. But she's able to conduct nice interviews with the players since she knows a lot of them, in russian if need be, and she's pretty agreeable. So that's all good, I guess.

Yes but I'm French and not english and I think it's a shame to speak French so badly on TV.

Tatiana speaks French very well with practically no accent. I haven't really noticed any mistakes, they mustn't be big.

Her comments, well... no, she isn't the best commentator out there. Not too useful. But she is cute, (surprisingly) very classy, and it's great when she interviews players (I've only seen Marat & Dinara so far, though). She keeps saying she is there to bring gossip news but nothing ever comes .

Awh and I thought it was funny, she has never heard of Polona Hercog .
