Re: Rate a commentator: Kevin Skinner

Re: Rate a commentator: Kevin Skinner

Yes, he does. Glad to see I'm not the only one. In addition to rambling on while play is taking place, he seems to fancy himself as a wordsmith of sorts, and an amusing raconteur. Unfortunately this image is undermined by constant vocabulary misusages and malapropisms, in addition to a seeming unfamiliarity with how the scoring system works (a couple of occasions) or the most elementary aspects of the cultures where tournaments are held (He believed a young female lineswoman "must be as cold as I am!" when she was simply wearing a Muslim headscarf!!) He is almost (but not quite) as irritating as Adel al-Shaty on al-Jazeera sports!!

Re: Rate a commentator: Kevin Skinner

He just talks and talks and talks. He basically only states what is happening with the score ect but does it so long winded

Anna Chakvetadze Rules

Kim Clijsters - Supporting the comeback!

I have no other faves, I just hate

Re: Rate a commentator: Kevin Skinner

Does anyone know what has happened to him? He hasn't commentated for a while now. He was commentating nearly every premier tournament at the beginning of the year and has disappeared. Maybe burnout lol

I think Andrew Krazny is commentating the final today.

Re: Rate a commentator: Kevin Skinner

I'm glad he's not commentating anymore, he's really annoying.

Re: Rate a commentator: Kevin Skinner

It was Kevin something-else today and he's almost as bad as Skinner.

Pretty sue he said 'As Maria Sharapova goes up 4-2' during today's match

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

Re: Rate a commentator: Kevin Skinner

That's Jason Goodall (working with Kevin Skinner).
I like him too but he normally does ATP.

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


Will my weakness for an hour, make me suffer for a life time?

Re: Rate a commentator: Kevin Skinner

Holy shit this guy is commentating Istanbul and I want to throw my computer out the window . He literally goes on monologues every other point and they're all just repeating the same fact. [tenminuterant]Azarenka has little preparation because she went 0-2 during the Asian swing.[/tenminuterant] Two points later, [tenminuterant]So Alicia, what do you think those two points say about Azarenka's lack of preparation due to the fact that she went 0-2 during the Asian swing?[/tenminuterant] Keep in mind that he can't be nearly that concise .

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Crazy Frenchies! Gilles Simon Alizé Cornet

Re: Rate a commentator: Kevin Skinner

He's commentating all week . I'm not even kidding it's turning my experience of watching the event from being very enjoyable to being a stressful, frustrating experience .

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Crazy Frenchies! Gilles Simon Alizé Cornet
