Chrissy and Pam in the booth for the first time this fortnight

They are actually enjoyable to watch! It's very relaxing, and I forgot how Chrissy has such a soft voice.

Re: Chrissy and Pam in the booth for the first time this fortnight

Anything with Pam Shriver is amazing.

I'd really like them to just stick her in the booth by herself one day and see how she commentates.

I like how Pam is making fun of her hair back then.

Nice team

If ESPN was smart, they could do what the NBA on TNT did with Barkley for Shriver and Evert.......They have great, fun personalities that could easily get a fan base outside of tennis.

At a Roland Garros in the mid 2000's they stuck Mary Joe and Pam in women's matches back to back days completely by themselves. They were much more like the BBC/Eurosport counterparts and tended to be much more silent.

Re: Chrissy and Pam in the booth for the first time this fortnight

What I always liked about Pam and Chris as commentators is that they commentate on the match.............And same with even Tracy Austin sometimes. They don't do the sappy cliche' storytelling about a player's life for the 100th time, or even if they do it, they move on, and get right back to the match.

Not too bad at all though, and sometimes, the viewer needs that, especially from an all time legend in Evert, as well as a great doubles and very respectable singles player.

They know the game, and I rather have that then shaky, clumsy announcing from Ted Robinson.

Well Ted Robinson is horrid so I don't think that's a fair comparison .

I like both of them too. Anything with Pam is good stuff. She has a great sense of humor. I like Chris's voice.
