Predict Justine's performance as a commentator

Justine will be a commentator for the QF and later stages of Roland Garros for French television. How do you think she will do?

I don't recall her commentating before, if she has then you can base your opinion on that occasion.

Re: Predict Justine's performance as a commentator

not sure but I'm curious to know who she'll cheer for and who shes gonna bash . She once revealed that she likes Sveta's game and hoped she'd win the FO.

Re: Predict Justine's performance as a commentator

I think she'll be very dry as a commentator, kind of like how I imagine she is in real life.
She'll talk about the match but won't add anything new to the broadcast.

My Forever Fav: Jelena Dokic

Serena Williams, Ana Ivanovic

Re: Predict Justine's performance as a commentator

It gave me life to read "second-hand embarrassment" relating to Justine and Roland Garros.

Re: Predict Justine's performance as a commentator

Justine would probably only stan for Federer, and doubt they'll have her commentating on men's match.

Re: Predict Justine's performance as a commentator

LMFAO at the first option Henin? Right. I voted the 2nd.

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.

Re: Predict Justine's performance as a commentator

I don't think Justine will match the wit of a Lindsay Davenport or a Sam Smith but at least compared to most commentators, she will be able to speak from experience at playing most of the players she will be commentating on, which gives her a huge advantage over dinosaurs like Tracy Austinosaurus. She will also avoid the hero-worship of some of the older commentators which makes them so unpalatable as there is no-one left in the game who Justine hasn't beaten at some point or other. Hopefully she can throw in a few pieces of personal insider info, just to tantalise us.

Re: Predict Justine's performance as a commentator

She won't be as witty as some others, but she will be very knowledgeable, and has experience playing most of the players unlike the commentators in the US.

Re: Predict Justine's performance as a commentator

Third option. She never had anything interesting to say. Her press conferences were so f-ing boring, just like her personality.
