Brad never seems to stop talking and seems to think everyone else is an idiot. And don't even think about putting their two cents worth in about Andre. I'm with Cliffy on this, don't like him.

And that new woman in the booth is hideous. She mangles everyone's name. I SWEAR she called Henrieta Nagyova (spelling?) Henrieta Noriega once. She must know something about someone at ESPN, but she sure doesn't know tennis.

The new girl is so slow..she just seems to talk and react slowly

Plus I just seemed to get the feeling she knows nothing about tennis ..although I'm sure that's not true

i like Brad. it's nice having a perspective from someone who is intimately connected to many players. maybe Cliff is threatened but i didn't sense anything.

the creature who pisses me off is Pam Shriver. she is so bloody self-referential. she talks contantly about her own accomplishments and her own records. who gives a shit Pam!

the new girl SUCKS ASS. seriously, my ass could do a better job than that twit. it seems as though she had to think before she uttered a word all the time, and was afraid to talk because she knew she was going to screw up. they should fire her IMMEDIATELY. i mean any one of us would be able to do a MUCH better job than her. what an embarassement to the team.

It IS nice. At the same time, he just doesn't shut-up though. He thinks he knows everything. He acts like he's God. He doesn't let Cliff talk guys! LOL! You're not seeing things, it's the truth. And Pat is his little sidekick. Now that Brad is here--they both kinda gang up on Cliff. Brad just tries to make Cliff feel stupid! It's like 8th grade!! Very funny or very sad, which one?! It's like Brad took Cliff's seat on the school bus and now it's war. So now, maybe Cliff is like, diabolically hoping Andy will lose tomorrow. Mwah ha


Guys, she DID say Noriega instead of Nagyova. Hahahaha!! LOL! But I guess, you know, it's live, it's broadcast, shit happens! Can't take it back, can't hide, just gotta learn from the mistakes

I'm a young girl, an old WTAWorld member.

I've seen Suzy Colber commentating for figure skating. From what I can tell she's just one of those all-purpose commentators that networks like to plug in for whatever reason even though there's no need for her to be there. She was terrible for skating as well. I really don't get what the point of her being there is.

I like the new chick Suzy, I think she's nice, and you people ought to welcome her a little bit better to the tennis community instead of just bitching and hating on her. Of course she doesn't know how to pronounce the names, she's a tennis novice. Give her a chance, and then if she still sucks next year then you can start ragging on her. That guy for TNT Ernie was terrible too when he first started, but by the end he got very tennis literate.

Gilbert is a smart, natural commentator, and Cliff probably knows that if Gilbert were to come permanently into the boothfor ESPN, he (Cliff) is the one who's going to get squeezed out, not Pat or Carillo. So he must feel a bit threatened.

Why don't they do something about Pat...almost everything revolves around Roddick and Davis cup with him!
