Re: Idiotic commentator on Tennis Channel for Li Na - De Brito

All of Tennis Channel commentators are idiots. They had Robert Landsdorff who just couldnt stop sucking up to Sharapova. "Sharapova is the greatest fighter in the womens tour?" I guess they have amneisa about an 11 times Grand Slam champion (who has won three major titles after saving match points against her)

It's the old guy, I can't think of his name, he did the YEC with Davenport and Morariu. He is a complete idiot who loves to state the obvious.

Re: Idiotic commentator on Tennis Channel for Li Na - De Brito

I'm glad for TTC's presence but their commentators suck ass. The only one imo who is somewhat decent is Arias. The less said about Gimelstob the better. Corins Morariu still can't speak decently after several years. They're a mess.

Re: Idiotic commentator on Tennis Channel for Li Na - De Brito

My favorite line was when the commentator said (I don't know if this was TTC or Direct TV) that Li Na played the percentages well. I love me my Li Na, but let's be real, percentages is not what she's known for!

TTC, I love Bill Macatee, and Linday Davenport. Katrina Adams has improved so much over the years from her dismal start, but I wouldn't say aside from Bill & Lindsay they have real tv people.
