Yeah i remember last year!! J Mac wouldn't shut up when he was commentating. I bet Martina will be just the same.

God can you just imagine J Mac and Hingis commentating on a Williams/Williams match! That would be sickening!

I have never given up and it's important for me to prove to myself that I can do this, and to prove to me that i'm a champion.
If I were just to sit down, lay down and give in, then I wouldn't have any respect for myself."

Were they on last night (or today?) in Oz?? I hope ESPN will give us a glimpse of Martina and Jon-Knee Mac.

OK, I will turn subtitles off!

Mac never shut his mouth up during these points!

hingis is going to miss tennis the more she gets involved in it again IMO. it will increase the chances of a comeback.

How about giving Martina the benefit of the doubt? We've heard John commentate many times before, so it's fair to judge what he will be like. But we've never heard Martina commentate before. She's said to be sharp and witty, and quick to quip others in an every day capacity. You never know, she might just apply this talent of hers to shut old Mac up on occasion. We just don't know. Fair go.

I look forward to hearing Martina commentate, but I dont like Johnny Mac. They should just get rid of him and let her commentate with a woman! Bring back Liz Smiley or Kerryn Pratt!
Johnny Mac is so damn annoying, he sucks as a commentator and an interviewer as well!
