Does Chris Evert bother anyone else as a match commentator?

She's on ESPN way too much for me. She just stated, "The Ivanovic Radwanska match will be interesting since they both have the same type of game."

I don't think I've ever heard a more incorrect statement...

Despite not making many winners, she's still an agressive baseliner, and she doesn't only win matches by waiting the opponent's mistake, though she can do that at times also.

There's a whole thread dedicated to her drivel.

Re: Does Chris Evert bother anyone else as a match commentator?

She's classic in her own way. She makes great points, perhaps a tad too casual for my liking.

I thought when Pam asked her on Serena's match point in the last match "Think she wants to end it here" or something like that and Chrissie goes "Yeah, she wants to play dubs..." real cool like, that she was talking about the same scoreline in which Venus lost to Maria.

Martina gives better insight, while Pam is more annoying than Chris IMO.

Yes, that's a botched opinion statement by her.

Ivanovic is far more aggressive.

She is hilarious. This guy on Twitter (https://twitter.com/ovafanboy) has been making Chrissie memes all night.

She's not as bad as you overexaggerating dramatic persons present her to be.

If I remember correctly (I think I read it on here) that during the French Open of 2012 she said that Sam Stosur's signature shot was her backhand down the line. I couldn't help but hysterically laugh.

Yup. She also used to say that Maria would hit 30 DFs a match when she was coming back from her shoulder surgery.

She said that during her 1R RG match against Baltacha last year
