:fiery::fiery:I am tired of watching tennis and have mary carillo as a commentator! If you were watching Jankovic's match last night she was sooo annoying! She keep yelling out FLIPKINS FLIPKINS and saying how she is going to knock out the number one seed! It was 6-4 4-5 and she was screaming about how Flipkins is going to win and knock out Jelena and Jelena was up a set, its not like Flipkins won the first set or anything! Mary Carillo is the worst commentator and ESPN coverage wold be better without her!:fiery::fiery:

And some posters say Jelena and her fans are delusional! :haha:
Never once in that match was there any doubt as to who the winner is going to be.

Poor Mary, though. :hug:

She can be annoying, but she is not bad commentator. She has her own opinions like everyone. :shrug:

JJ fans are WAYY too sensitive. Did you hear the heaps of praise she's been giving JJ?

I watched the match on ESPN too and I liked the commentating. I thought it was fair.

I think ever since 2008's USO, when JJ hogged the microphone during the trophy ceremony, Carillo got annoyed w/her. It was an important occasion and perhaps Carillo didn't want to deal w/JJ's antics, and coming into this year's A.O., she could still be feeling annoyed w/JJ, and be a critic saying that she doesn't deserve the #1 ranking w/o a GS title.

ESPN Crew is pretty awful.
Gilbert, Fowler, drysdale, Carillo, mcenroe.
These bunch are the worst.
I always mute the channel or turn the TV volume down when i watch the match.
i suggest you do the same.

Eurosport commentators are pretty good though.

Mary is funny and you guys don't even realize it. She made a comment about JJ having to work hard during her match , and it would hurt her when she faces da big ones! She was talking about serena's(hrmm boobs) the way she said it was funny.

My favorite ESPN tennis moment was in 2005 at Miami, when Cliff Drysdale polished off a bottle of gin while he was working a very boring 3rd round match with Mary Carillo. Drysdale had a belly full of booze and an overdose of Carillo's incessant yammering. He broke the empty bottle over Carillo's head (she later needed 21 stitches to close the wound) and shouted, "You dried up old harpy....I wouldn't fuck you with Bud Collins' dick!"......all on the air!

I have to admit I really like Carillo, she makes some dull matches fun with her free flowing commentary. She'll say whatever she pleases and is not afraid to express her views on players, whether they are positive or negative. I like her and I'm glad she is still commentating. I do have to say I love MJ too!

Yes, Eurosport commentators are generally good. I don't mind Jo Durie but I love Sam Smith because she has got such a dry sense of humour! I love David Mercer too - he rocks! My favourite quote yesterday was, "That was SO dumb, Elena!" :lol:

no offence to the several intelligent US posters of this board, but Mary Carillo is the quintissential American Idiot. I don't like her either. She's just a bad announcer. She obviously has something against JJ, and didn't hide it very well in her commentating. That's unprofessional. Also, as usual, she talks way too much about stuff other than what's going on down on the court. I want the announcers to be enhancing what I'm seeing on my TV screen. When they talk about other things, they are insulting the players, the viewers, and the game of tennis. It's like they (Mary Carillo) is saying 'This match is boring. My personal opinions on other tennis-related issues are much more interesting than this match.' She's almost always wrong about that. I wouldn't be watching the match if it was boring. Her job is to point out subtleties about what's going on in the match that viewers might not be picking up on. There's a LOT of stuff that could be talked about. Mary just doesn't have the imagination to do it.

BTW - why didn't the announcers point out that Serena was playing injured against Dulko? And why didn't they point out that Serena is way out of shape? Why didn't they mention that Dulko had a very high fever before the match and wasn't sure she could even play? Those are things the viewer wants to know. What's really going on down there on the court! If they don't mention those things and we pick up on them or read about them later, the announcers lose credibility. They come off as being superficial.

I haven't heard any good color commentating yet. Martina N. is disappointing. When she tries to get analytical, her explanations are very awkward, too complex, too long, too repetitive. Once in a while she'll make an interesting point, but she really doesn't seem to have much common sense about what we want to hear. For example, she mentioned that Dementieva isn't a natural athlete. I agree with that. Good comment. But what about her opponent - Benesova? Iveta is a natural athlete. Why didn't Martina mention that? It was a chance to say something positive that would have raised the interest level (for me). Also, someone should have jumped on her immediately, and asked her who she thought were the more talented natural athletes on tour. That is THE one question I'd like to hear Martina, or Pam Shriver, or any ex-tour player comment on. My picks would be Chakvetadze and Schnyder, who both lost early. So next question is, what other qualities are important to making a champion? And who has them? And why did Anna and Patty lose early? Honest answers to those questions are what I want to hear IF the commentators feel a necessity to talk about something other than what I'm seeing on my TV screen.

Another point - neither Mary or Martina have pleasant television voices. Mary Jo and Pam are better in that respect. Pam makes the most interesting points to me. She was trying to make some interesting points during the match when the young American girl was cramping up. But the idiot guys in the booth weren't letting her talk. What Pam should have pointed out was exactly which muscles were cramping up. They are showing this girl limping, stretching, massaging herself, etc., which is dramatic stuff, but they wouldn't let Pam talk about it. The girl was cramping in one calf, both hamstrings, both quads and her hand. Pam should have pointed that out. She sort of tried, but the guys in the booth wouldn't let her talk.

Where is Jimmy Arias? Why isn't he being used down there? He's better than all of them.

I have sent email after email to ESPN about Manly Carillo. I get tired of her saying "I have never heard of this player" or "I have never seen her play" when speaking of a younger player or someone who qualifies. :rolleyes: It's that bitch's job to know these people! It's not like she commentate on other sports. :rolleyes:
