US TC announcers are just AWFUL!

Jesus they make a lot of mistakes. its bad enough that their commentary is just plain annoying. but when you add in all the stupid things they say and get wrong it's just ridiculous. i have lost count how many errors they have made regarding the players in the current wta tournament. before going off the air last night they said Vera was out. but no these dingbats were wrong again. if you never listened to these announcers before you would think they are brand new at this. and they never admit to any mistakes. like today they didn't admit they were wrong about saying Vera was out of the tournament before going off the air last night. now they act like it was never said.

Re: US TC announcers are just AWFUL!

Davenport is better then most at being quiet during play. but her commentary is pretty bland. its pretty boring to hear her talk. but i like her better then any of the other clowns tc uses like Ted. Lee. Adams. Corina. Bla!

Have you sent feedback to TC?

I actually like Davenport and Leif Shiras? is that his name? I like their commentary and everything. That Corine Morarui is another story.

Re: US TC announcers are just AWFUL!

How can you say that......they gave us this gem shading both Wozniaki and Henin.....

Did you guys here what the guy (I forget his name) said on TC said about Justin? Lindsay and him were talking about how some players call the trainer after they lose a set and how some are legit injured or sick and some are just trying to mess with the opponent. He says 'Wozniacki seems like the type of player who would not just call a trainer out to mess with the opponent. He called a medical timeout that really wasnt for medical reasons a Justine timeout.

I am not conceited, I am just convinced

It shows lack of character but also lack of professinalism. They are basically in it for the quick easy money and nothing else (they don't expect to have a long career in broadcasting cuz they probably already know they suck.

Because she knows it can't be as boring as 99% of her matches were to watch!These champs are quite interesting plenty of twists and turns. The commentators do say some silly things I do at home watching but I don't get payed for saying them

BepaZvonareva Don't read my reps anymore, very relaxing Lydia Ko , Felicity Jones, Emilia Clarke, Rachel Khoo.

Re: US TC announcers are just AWFUL!

ESPN's crew of Rennae Stubbs, Kevin Skinner, and Katrina Adams was no better. Rennae goes on and on, even during points. At least, Adams tried to only speak between points. Also, the fact that ESPN3 only shows 2 out of 3 matches of the tournament irritates me.

Re: US TC announcers are just AWFUL!

The Eurosport commentators were commenting tonight (during Vika vs Bartoli) of an event in Hawaii where it features winners of Premier Tournaments and Shahar Peer has been awarded a wildcard!

No, they were saying there used to be one in Hawaii. Jo Durie played in it.
