Not at tennis. At all.

In 2009, she kept referring to Schiavone as "2007 Wimbledon finalist." Please tell me how she's similar to Bartoli AT ALL. Thanks.

Yesterday was pretty bad..Pam and Dick kept calling Makarova a Czech. Even with the draw graphic in front of them with her flag.

Have to agree. She doesn't bring anything interesting to the table.

i'm pretty sure she was there BEFORE carillo left...so she didn't replace carillo i remember being annoyed by her nonsense last year

If we're here, how GORGEOUS are the stool montages with all the players. Really well done. I smile when it comes on
And it's not just Maria, Federer, Roddick etc. Li Na, Wawrinka, Nole and others are all in it too

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

Chris McKendry is SO BAD... She annoys me to no end. Why is she on a tennis broadcast? She is just a joke. When she is on with Chris Evert it becomes, if one can imagine, even worse! Chris Evert is annoying but she played tennis so if ESPN wants to make the mistake of having an annoying former player on maybe I can understand that. Chris McKendry offers the double whamy of being annoying AND dumb! WHY??? WHY???? WHY??? When Chris and Chris are on...my MUTE button is in full use....

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

But Chris McKendry is bad too. So undeservedly glib.

Most of the ESPN crew I can't stand, so I watch less and less of them.

It will always be Arantxa, hall of famer! and martina hingis and kim clijsters - amazing legends
ana ivanovic and the italian girls, especially pennetta (forza azzurre! RG CHAMP FRANCESCA AND FINALIST SARA!)
aga, vika, sam, na in the next tier

You are very tolerant "Sir Stefwhit!" 50 Chris McKendry's would not be recommended. Chris Fowler should be out, as well. Not sure why either of them have been hired to be out of their element. But, McKendry is really, really awful! Fowler is just awful. Either way, they both stink!!! Alberto Berasategui? No slams (which would only be Roland Garros; and he did make the final) but he does have wins over Rafter and Agassi... Although, he was interesting to watch!!!

Its just her head seems literally empty she obviosuly has no idea what shes speaking about everyone just goes along like she does and she randomly stops speaking and stares at the screen all the time....... Its so painful to watch.

What happened to the other red headed chick? She was 100x better and actaully had a personality.
PREACH. I laugh every time.

Despite not making many winners, she's still an agressive baseliner, and she doesn't only win matches by waiting the opponent's mistake, though she can do that at times also.

This happened about two days ago:

McKendry: Radwanska is a better version of Ivanovic.

Evert: Very good! I'm impressed!!!
