She's slightly better at pronouncing names than Ted Robinson, so that saves her from the "worst ESPN commentator ever" award.

She said "Petkuzzy."

Yeah, she literally has no idea what is going on in tennis. I'm pretty sure for some of the questions, they just tell her what to say because she would be dumbfounded without them. In all honesty, I don't know why they got rid of Carillo, someone who knows what they're talking about technically, for someone like her.

Why do you guys let a total stranger get to you like that?

I don't mind her. She doesn't get on my nerves.

There are some that I dislike, but the only american commentator that I really loathe and detest is Ted Robinson ewwwwww.

She does get annoying but better than Carillo.

Re: ESPN viewers: Does Chris McKendry annoy the hell outta of you too?

Wasn't she here when Carillo was also around?
But yes, she seems very clueless about tennis. Very fake about what she's talking about as well.
With that said, she's better than a lot of the other commentators

Re: ESPN viewers: Does Chris McKendry annoy the hell outta of you too?

She's just one of those aggrivating sports retards that ESPN likes to send to the real events to make the real commentators either look better (see Patrick McEnroe) or make them want to kill said retard for their retardation.

Personally, I wouldn't have a problem with her if she educated herself on the sport she's talking about (as annoying as he can be, Chris Fowler really has learned tennis and how to talk about it and knows something about the players) and learned how to pronounce their names a bit better. I know it's hard but seriously, it's not that hard.
