A question for the Americans who have tennis channel.

I'm just curious, what is your opinion of Corina Morariu as a commentator? Isn't she great? She is so unbiased yet funny and amusing at the same time. I also like all the background information she has on all the players prior to the match. She also gives great analysis and great interviews after the match. She seems very friendly. A lot more so than all the ESPN commentators. Kind of reminds me a lot of Mary Jo Fernandez, just less monotone.

What do you think of CorinaGoddess?

I love her and think she's way more pleasant and grounded than idiots like Mary Carillo, whose commentary I've come to detest.

Re: A question for the Americans who have tennis channel.

I have to agree she's really good. I think its because she's as close as u can get to a young retired player. AND she's a nice person unlike gimmelslob.

BUT she does also say that daniela underachieved which makes me sad each time

Re: A question for the Americans who have tennis channel.

Re: A question for the Americans who have tennis channel.

i actually find her condescending and hate when she tries to belittle/emasculate cliff drysdale by mocking everything he says. she and davenport sound so much alike it's frightening. every time i see them i can't help but picture them scissoring.

Anyway, I think she's pretty good. She's fair and not too bad to listen to. Her humour is kinda cheesy though.

Re: A question for the Americans who have tennis channel.

I like the TTC's primary lineup: Corina, Martina, Jimmy, Lindsey. It's such a pleasure listening to them rather than JMac, Carillo, PMac.

I wish TTC could bring in MJF and sometimes Pam along with much more tournament coverage - like from day one of tourneys rather than start with SemiFinals. MOre WTA tournaments, too.

Couldn't disagree more, which just goes to show you, different strokes...

Personally, I find her lisp incredibly annoying, almost as much as her cloying idolatry of the sisters. She is the antithesis of an objective reporter.
