TTC's Davenport, Corina Morariu: Where Are They?

What happen to Davenport and Corina Morariu as commentators on the TTC?

Did they leave the TTC?

I prefer them to Tracy and her current partner.

Corina just did Dubai and Lindsay doesn't commentate that often.

I thought it was only on TV infomercial they needed pitch mean with English accent?

To be fair, Aussies and British routinely hire Tracy, Connors and McEnroe during their respective tournaments.
We are just not used to seeing it that often in the US.
Although we have Drysdale and the other Aussie( former Agassi coach) on ESPN.

Re: TTC's Davenport, Corina Morariu: Where Are They?

Corina did Dubai and Paris Indoors. Katrina Adams did Sydney and Dubai. And the guy (Brian Webber?) did Sydney and Paris. It seems between those three they mix them up a lot. But during Paris Indoors Corina was totally hitting on her partner, maybe she got fired.?. : ( ....

Nah just kidding, she'll be back. And soon hopefully.

This is in California where Davenport lives, so I thought it would be more convenient.

Davenport commentates for FSN in the US during IW and Miami. She's been on there all week for their coverage.

Yeah, they have it on for 2 hours 9:30 to 11:30... Lindsays commentating right now... She did Kims a couple nights ago and was talking about how the glam of coming back to the tour has ended and not all the little things about it start to bother you again... I know how that feels. Lol made me wonder if that second baby really WAS a mistake...

Re: TTC's Davenport, Corina Morariu: Where Are They?

Just like it has been already posted Lindsay does IW and Miami for FSN and she only does the slams and the YEC (from Studio mainly) for TTC along with the summer hardcourt tourneys in California. Shes got a pretty sweet deal. She gets to do the events that are in her home State and gets to be with her family, and gets to do a select few big tournaments for TTC and FSN from a studio in California. I'm not sure whether she is going to be on site at Miami, but that's not a bad place to work for a week.

Also the British commentators you are hearing during the mens matches work for Sky Sport in Europe and TTC just carries the feed of that broadcast and insert their commercials. They pay a rights fee, but those announcers don't work for TTC they work for Sky Sports and there broadcast is basically the international English language feed for all of the Masters Series events.

Proud Blackjack!
