I think Mary Joe surrendered her chance at the #1 ranking this week. She made the exact same mistake on Chanda's ranking at least 3 times this week.
Cliff is in a "class" by himself. He completes the Grand Slam of bad tennis announcing.
He mangles the pronounciation of names on a regular basis.
He gets scores wrong. Not just the momentary flub over game or break points, but he'll get scores wrong in mid-game.
He still mixes up Venus and Serena.
And he's the master of the double-standard. He'll pan the women for doing the same things he'll praise in a men's match. Or when a favored woman player gets up a break, he's quick to write off the match. Yet when it happens in a men's match, he stays in "shill" mode. I remember one men's match over a year ago where it was an absolute slaughter. Not only was the score lopsided (something like 6-1 4-0 or 5-0), there was a huge disparity in performance levels that day. Incredibly, Cliff blurted out "This, to me, is the most exciting time of the match...", and asked questions such as "Can he come back" and "Will he come back", and did everthing to try to make it sound like this is the most exciting thing he's ever seen. He went so over the top that even his broadcast partner, who was also prone to shilling, didn't buy it.
And how many times has Cliff done a match where a top woman won a close match, say 6-4 6-4 or something like that, with lots of hard-fought, multi-deuce games that could have gone either way, then an hour later, when the scores scroll by during a men's match, he says she won "EASILY".
With Chris no longer active, someone else has to fill the void as the worst tennis announcer. Unfortunately, there's no shortage of candidates.
