Does anyone else hate ted robinson?

He has no idea what hes talking about, he looks like an alien and he has a thing for John MacEnroe.

Cant stand him.

He's always slamming Monica too saying beating Venus was "a fluke"

I'll never forget when Ted was doing a Roger Federer match at the Open, and Rog won a long point where he played some brilliant shots, but he finished it off by just tapping an absolute gimme over the net for the easy dropshot winner. Ted was like, "God ... he just makes it look SO EASY!" And then Evert or whoever was with in the booth with him was like, "well, that's because that WAS easy, Ted." It was classic.

yeah i think only tennis related people should be allowed to commentate, the guy that did the UsOpen said "venus has yet to get a first serve in" when she did 3 times.

Chris Everts constant diarreha of the mouth during matches is the worst in tennis commentating period.

Yeah, Chris can't shut up, but Tracy Austin is worse. Besides, Chris won me over when she said she was "the greatest runner-up Wimbledon's ever seen."

Whats wrong with Chris Everts commentating? Its better than Mary Carillos or Tracy Austins, or Mary Joe Fernandez's or Pam Shrivers

Besides the fact that her constant talking during points is very irritating, someone needs to inform her that Amelie Mauresmo has never beaten the Williams on clay or anything else. (like she said at Wimbeldon) I just loved it though when she said that Venus wasnt "smart" enough to beat hingis at Wimby 2000 and when Venus made her look very very stupid.

actually during wimbledon she kept saying "after the point!" in refernce to her commentating

i remember that during wimby but she said top players not neccesarily the williams' (and Serena wasnt a top player at that time, well not a real one anyway)

I'm not just pickin on Chris, Tracey Austin needs to learn the meaning of objectivity and Mary Jo and Pam.. well I just turn on the mute button. Mary Carrilo is pretty tolorable. After all this raggin on Chris, though she isnt even my worst commentator, that honor goes to Malivai Washington. (He always sounds like he has something stuck up his nose, which is intolarable for me to listen to.)

I agree on that one

John MacEnroe is alright, he doesnt talk too much and he always has the right comments ( i think he has a thing for a couple of the guy players though)

The best I've heard yet is Chanda Rubin, she was calling some this year at the US Open and she was great!
