Thumbs up Re: Rate a commentator: Kevin Skinner

I guess so. I see some of your points. Still I find him fun. :-) He's got a lot of energy and he tries to make it fun. But it's just one opinion. I think that Sony Ericsson thing isn't his fault though. Aren't they the ones who produce those shows? He seems to sign off with "a Sony Ericsson WTA Tour production." I've noticed the US Open has all these USOpen.org promos every 4th game and it seems like that is what he is doing. Or I guess maybe he's paid by them. So then I understand why.

I think the Luke Jensen/Fred Stolle combination is good. Murphy did talk a LOT more than was necessary during the Djokovic/Monfils match but I didn't find it annoying. It was insightful and I agreed with everything he said about Monfils' game. I'll admit he and his brother are a bit too passionate about their tennis but it doesn't bother me that much (especially when Luke's hunches turn out totally wrong "Soderling to win the US Open"/ "I'll be SHOCKED if this ends in straights!" ).

Yes. He says WAY TOO MUCH omfg. Calm the f*ck down.

He has to explain EVERYTHING and likes to play with words all the time.

He'd be talking about Louis Armstrong and then be like "And singing her way into a 40-15 point is Francesca Schiavone who will serve to hold."

"If you look at the WTA media guide the last thing you see is Vera Zvonereva but she is the FIRST into the US Open final."

Is there any creature on earth as unfortunate as an ugly woman?

Re: Rate a commentator: Kevin Skinner

Is he the one who over-enunciates Spanish names?

Re: Rate a commentator: Kevin Skinner

Bump.

Why does it seem like this guy commentates whenever I watch the WTA tour? He is so, so, so annoying.

STOP TALKING!!! Your voice is annoying, and your use of player nicknames, aka "Agy" (!!!!) is so irritating, as are the tons of pointless facts you reel off.

GO AWAY!! Whenever someone is commentating a game by themselves, I know it's tough, but the key is to NOT overdo it, you don't need to talk after every point and not ever have any silence.

Do you have foxtel? Eurosport usually shows the semis and finals which Fox show. They don't have Kevin Skinner commentating.

Top 10: Ashleigh Barty, Caroline Garcia, Jamie Hampton, Jelena Jankovic, Agnieszka Radwanska, Lucie Safarova, Maria Sharapova, Karolina Sprem, Sam Stosur, Jarmila Wolfe.

All time favourite: Anna Chakvetadze
