I miss Chrissie!

I miss Chrissie! After many years Chris Evert has retired from her tennis analyst position with NBC. It feels strange not hearing her voice this time of year. Mary Carillo has taken her place at NBC. But I get enough of Mary at ESPN/ESPN2. I'd rather hear more from Bud Collins, Mr. tennis knowledge. Atleast John McEnroe is still a tennis analyst. He was a great player, and he is a great analyst!

Of course Chrissie is arguably the greatest female tennis player ever. And she's certainly one of the most important tennis players ever. Man or woman. I hope she's happy raising her family and running the Evert Tennis Academy!

Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett

I'm not, I'm sorry for you.

And no, Mary is not 10 times better.

Mary is 50 times better.

That's just not true, VF. And Mary speaks too much! And unlike John McEnroe, Mary could never work for the BBC!

Prissy Chrissy sucks butt. Give me Mary Carillo anyday, and she is funny at times also. I love her joke about Schett beating Venus at the 2001 French. She said," I guess Schett Happens". ROTF..... that's some funny stuff.

IMO, Chrissy was a hater. Especially when Johnny Mac was teamed with her ass. I mean Chrissy was just outright negative.

Now, only if ESPN could get rid of Mary Ho and Scram I would be totally satisfied.

Well, I think Patrick is alright. I mean he is not the best, but he is good.

I do think John McEnroe has a lot of knowledge about the game, but IMO his nasty attitude and bias overshadows those qualities. I don't like him at all because he likes to make attention seeking comments like Henman will never win Wimbledon, or Goran is a one slam wonder which may be true but just downright rude to say on air.

Also the whole he can beat any women, he calls players fat, he is just a hater who is very unprofessional at times.

I knew I would get some interesting replies. And I'm not dissapointed.

Well, I'm not quite the only one who misses Chrissie, VF.

LOL at harloo! That's cold!

Thanks Ryan!

I expect better of you, TH!

And LOL at TM!

I miss Chrissy, kinda. I miss having people bashing her and her asking stupid comments and all like that. Chrissy wasn't a good analyst but she was OK.

Mary is great, though. She has good thoughts but lacks some knowledge of the Tour that one would think she would know off-hand (like the fact that Capriati hasn't won a tournament since the '02 Aussie). People always accused Chrissy of not doing her homework (and rightly so) but Mary was stumped when asked by Johnny Mac if Anna was playing the French this year. Ted had to chime in. Ted sure does his homework and plays well off of Mac.
