Honestly I die a little bit each time it's only Evert and McKendry on the panel.

I prefer the former pros comments as to the analysis of the matches and players. Chris is FLUFF and nothing else of any substance! How did she end up with the job as mistress of ceremonies???

She's harmless. I hardly even notice she's there.

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

She's not ideal, and surely a bit tennis-stupid, but the other Chrises (Fowler and Evert) are more annoying (and seemingly ever-present). Fowler needs to try to veil his disdain for the women players for a little better. He's almost Courieresque, circa early 2000s. He would deserve a win in a poll for "Most god-awful tennis Chris on ESPN."

She is horrible and yet...still better than Hannah Storm. So remember peeps, it could be worse.

I actually like her a lot more than Chris Evert, who called Bartoli a clay court specialist.

Tennis commentary is brutal. Because in this country sadly Tennis has become niche sport. It doesn't face scrutiny. If the NFL commentators were this bad, they would never hear the end of it.

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

A little bit yes, she also sounds like Pam Shriver which is never a good thing.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Kendry is annoying, as much as Navratilova. I can't stand either of them.
But I love Mary Carillo, Pam, Mary Joe and Lindsay.

At least Hannah Storm has personality and can carry a conversation. McKendry is always so wooden & awkward. I used to think she was only this way because she was new, but it's been three years and she still seems to not be fitting in.

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

Indeed she is.

But someone should make a WWW thread between her and Hannah Storm.

Lets see how that would turn out

She also says that Stosur's signature shot is her BHDTL, and that Ana and Aga play a similar style of tennis

She never ceases to amaze me.

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.

Chris always seems so nervous. But I think Evert is worse; she should know better .

No. I like that their are commentators that are not from a tennis background. No tennis snob here.

Its too bad we can't have Bonnie Bernstein back. But as is always the case, all of the good broadcasters go to NFL football.
