Oh No, Mary Carillo is Back, Corrupting Lindsey...

I wished Mary would just go away, now she will contaminate Davenport pristine work as commentator...

Re: Oh No, Mary Carillo is Back, Corrupting Lindsey...

I felt the same way- she's so YUCK,, I'm so glad ESPN gave her the boot. Shes the most overrated commentator in history. She's negative and bad energy- all the things I deplore in a commentator. Tennis channel bought into her hype and it's to their detriment. go away Mary- go back to HBO- or do sports I don't watch, Golf, Mountain Biking, Bowling....

I fear she will be in the booth during Venus match and it will be dour in the commentators booth.

Unfortunately, we will have more dosage of her during NBC coverage of the Olympics, not only in tennis, but in other sport in tennis family, table tennis, badminton

Yeah, there are always misguided people
That is why sampling is carefully done, to make sure outliers such as yourself are included

I may not agree with everything she says, but I enjoy her candor in the box.

She's not as vile and disgusting toward Maria- so I reckon a lot of Masha fans would be ok with her. In fact I would dare say she a Masha stan..

I don't dislike her. She's no worse than most of the commentators.

I like Serena too though.

She's certainly not the objective commentator out there (see AO 2005 semi ) but I think she knows the game for the most part, is eloquent, and her batshit antics crack me up

She knows the game... Her problem is that she wants to be even smarter with her stupid comments.

Re: Oh No, Mary Carillo is Back, Corrupting Lindsey...

Carillo is one truly interesting commentator. Every time she says something dumb, and especially if it's about Serena, I feel the need to reach through my flat screen TV and punch her right in the throat. If Tennis Channel has a brain....they'll see what we all see and get rid of her!!!!..........Someone tell the Lifetime network to hire her. I'm sure she'll be of FINE use there!

Re: Oh No, Mary Carillo is Back, Corrupting Lindsey...

Lindsay won't be corrupted. It would be interesting to have them two in the booth, they're both totally different and Lindsay doesn't back down with her comments/what she thinks about the game.

The Effing Venus Williams!!!
