A lot of tennis fans despise Mary Carillo, finding her annoying, unprofessional, and lame. However, Carillo undeniably has her fans. What kind of person is a fan of Mary Carillo?

Her fans can be placed into 2 broad categories.

Carillo Fans Type A: Fans who follow tennis closely, but are not very intelligent and therefore are taken in by Carillo's kitschy act.

Carillo Fans Type B: People who may be intelligent, but who follow tennis only casually and know little about the sport, and therefore do not realize how little Carillo knows.

Carillo Fans Type C: Out and out racists who use her as a defense to justify their dislike of two black women dominating a lily white sport

type D: Luv her 'cause she get the most mileage from a limited skillset.

in today's media, credibility runs a distant second to controversy. Carillo asserts that the sisters fix matches, hurt tennis by being present, hurt tennis by being absent, etc.

anyone trying to be objective regarding her commentary should recognize they're damned if they do and damned if they don't. :lol:

one thing is certain about potential and the Williams sisters. :wavey:, they absolutely lack the potential to please everybody :lol:.

I like her because I think she is a woman doing her job, entitled to her opinion. Even if I don't like it, I think her voice sounds better than mine over a tennis match. Of course I like other commentators better, but I like her. I think people need to relax with this racist tactic. No one calls Richard Williams racist when he makes white comments. But yet, Carillo never makes black comments and she is somehow racist. I don't get it! Let the woman do her job and let Venus and Serena prove her wrong. Australia 2007, Wimbledon 2007 anyone?

but she's not objective, so does her opinion really mean anything?

Type F: those of us who understand that she is commentating for a national audience who know next-to-nothing about tennis and is paid to be entertaining and mildly controversial.

I think the person on here calling Carillo a racist is a racist
themself for using the term LILY WHITE. My god that is a derogatory
comment.

Not necessarily. It depends upon how you define racist. One definition of racist is: Anyone who doesn't put every member of the Williams family on a pedestal, kiss their asses and agree with everything they do and say.

Applying that definition, you can add racist to Carillo's already exhaustive list of loathsome qualities.

I wish you did too.....so we wouldn't. But in the absence of that, if you'd like to find out what it's like listening to Mary Carillo, just get a hammer and repeatedly hit your thumb with it. It feels about the same.

I'll go on record as saying I don't think Carillo is a racist.

In fact, all this discussion about whether Carillo is racist actually does her a favor, because it takes the focus off of her being loathsome (good word), pernicious, and incompetent.

I dislike her becase of her lame ass jokes.
Before the Szavay/Kuznetsova match, I made a bet with someone that Mary Carillo will say I will Szavay before the end of the telecast.

Of course she followed through.

That I can telegraph how bad her jokes are going to be says something.
I wish she would just stop with the jokes.
If she did though it would be easier to spot how bad of a tennis commentator she really is.

If Carillo was a knowledgeable commentator I would not mind her stupid jokes so much.

But why do you think Carillo tells these stupid things? Of course, she does it to distract viewers from her lack of knowledge and the poor job she does.

The sad part is there are so many brain-dead people who fall for it.

My favorite is "Hingis needs a nap."


I think someone mentioned how Carillo rides every player, and they backed it up w/a few instances, but she saves her most vicious digs for Venus and Serena. ie Match fixing and faking injuries

you are a classic example of the "Type A" Mary Carillo fan.

Actually, some people are capable of disagreeing with her occasionally and not hating her for it. I guess this concept is lost on you. And, by the way, I am not a Mary Carillo fan. Like I indicated earlier when I said some people don't see the world in black and white...not hating someone doesn't necessarily make you a fan.

For instance I like that she took Henin to task in a very public manner for pulling out of the AO final. I also liked her take on the Henin "hand" incident.
