How would you rate LINDSAY as a commenter?

Lindsay Davenport is a breath of fresh air as announcer. For those of you listening to Foxsports, do you think she outshines Pammy, MJF and Mary Carrillo by a long shot. For one thing, she does not nitpick and criticize. She is fair and balanced.

Re: How would you rate LINDSAY as a commenter?

and I could listen to her wonderful voice for days and days!

I used to list my favorite tennis players here...
...then they all retired.
I used to keep track of my rankings in fantasy games here...
...then I realized how much I suck.
I used to update this signature, once in a while...
...then I realized no one actually reads it.

I LOVE listening to Linds. She knows what she's talking about, is very insightful and doesn't blow smoke up people's asses. She's pretty funny at times and doesn't just go along with what the guys are saying. I wish she would commentate a lot more cause she's definitely better then the fools we have from espn.

ITA. I sat through the Caro/Maria borefest mainly to hear Lindsay's pov on both players. She's is a complete natural up there. She's knows the player's games. Stands up for the athletes out on the court when necessary, but isn't afraid to be critical. Doesn't over-talk and blather on about gossipy nonsense during the points. And she treats the players with respect even when she doesn't personally care for their style of play. Total breath of fresh air.

Re: How would you rate LINDSAY as a commenter?

honestly at times i thought i was listening to Mary Joe and other times I thought she was Corina Morariu... shes articulate, honest, and knowledgeable. good addition, but needs more personality.

Loved Lindsay as a player love her as commentator. Doesn't talk too much, know a lot about the current players having played against most them, love her wit (always have) and she call a spade a spade without going overboard.
