Does ANYONE (even the Pam avatar ppl) doubt that for WTA matches, Martina is the absolute best in recent years?

Pfft! I'm the best, but no one employs me because they know I'd put the rest of their team in the shade. I invented the game and I'm the best damn commentator. Is there any end to my talents?

Jennifer Capriati is my idol

You're an anchor woman because you are too blonde and "verbally challenged" to be able string more than 10 words together without the aid of an autocue. I was going to call you "orally challenged" but we know that that's not ENTIRELY true *nudge* *nudge* *wink* *wink*

I'm the finest commentator in the land. I have proof that gentlemen find my mystic Anglo-South african twang rather attractive. I commentate with class and fine breeding.

Thank you! I really appreciate those kind words. And I'm rather partial to Pam myself.
