Katrina Adams on Tennis chanel

Re: Katrina Adams on Tennis chanel

You say keep Corina, but get rid of Katrina because she stumbles with her words?
Have you not heard Corina speak?

Agree, CM stumbles over her words quite a bit, lol. They both do. You would think that taking this job would mean that they don't get nervous while speaking

I don't care for her at all. When she was paired with Leif Shiras I had to mute the TV. It was unbearable.

Of the ones currently on TTC and FSN, the ones I really think are decent are Sam Gore, Ted Robinson and Martina when she is on there. Otherwise, give me ESPN but keep Pat McEnroe.

Re: Katrina Adams on Tennis chanel

Katrina is a world class hater.

But she's got a halfway decent tennis resume.

I personally think I could do a better job, but I wasn't a tour pro and don't have any tennis pedigree attached to my name.

Re: Katrina Adams on Tennis chanel

Katrina stumbles so....ugh horribly. and maybe its her voice that makes it more annoying than Corina's. But i heard her straight f-up sentences back to back. and how in the world do you stumble over the name of the event....

Patrick McEnroe is the best tennis analyst in the world. I do agree with you on all the other commentators. I am a big fan of Joe Fernandez Lee and Corina. I would still fire the others. They have some awful announcers on Tennistv.com. If it was up to me, I would have Patrick McEnroe do all the matches with Mary Joe Fernandez. I would like to see more matches, more cameras and less commentators. Tennis Channel has 6 matches going today and even showed parts of 2 other matches. That is what I want to see.

She stumbles like a person who is not 100% confortable with the game. She sounds more like an apprentice. Lee and Corina mesh very well, so why wasn't Lee with Corina today? Lee is a very good tennis announcer.

Patrick McEnroe is a good tennis analyst yes, but he talks too damn much. We know he knows a lot about tennis. Let the freaking players play. It's like he's afraid of not hearing his voice.
When he and Chris Fowler team up, it is just a chatter party with the tennis match as a sideshow. They just can't shut up

She needs to learn how to pronounce names as well, whenever daniela is on TTC she calls her hon-tuke-ava, I mean jesus.
