For a high quality, well informed professional commentary you have to go with Lindsay.

For pure comedy however, I would choose Mary Carillo.

I liked the BJK video till I saw it was made by LDVTennis.

Is there any creature on earth as unfortunate as an ugly woman?

Re: Who's the best tennis commentator of all time?

Lindz ofcourse. BJK was also great, I do enjoy whenever I get to hear her commentate. There are actually very few commentators, if any, that you'll catch me complaining about. Occasionally when CarilloxJMacxThatotherguy are commentating together they talk a little too much, but other than that

Sam Smith is awesome, imho. Love her commentary - relaxed, informative, insightful, no cliches, doesn't rabbit on, always heightens the tennis-viewing experience. She's a breath of fresh air.

I am not suited to Forum life.

Frew McMillan.

Informative, opinionated, funny, always try to say something new. Basically what every commentator should be.



and he liked Justine.
