Well Lindsay has comminatated for Tennis Channel for Doha, FSN for Indian wells so I think there might be a chance she will commintate for ESPN at some stage. Lindsay could play part time and comminatate part time. Does anyone have any youtube clips of the matches Lindsay commintated? Could you please put links in here?

She did a bit for the BBC at Wimby last year after she got knocked out. She was quite good.

Lindsay is sounds very knowledgeable and very professional. I guess I take what she says more seriously because she has played against many of the women she comments on. Lindsay is on with Justin Gimelstob and he sounds like he is drooling over Ivanovic. LOL

I always enjoy her though, she's so insightful and un-biased.

She's very good I heard her on the BBC last year and I think they may have gotten rid of her because unlike the other commentators she wasn't a fully fledged resident in Andy Murrays anus.

Lindsay is great at this. She has a good voice for it too.

I'm just waiting for her undercover bitch to surface though. :devil:

I think the undercover bitch came out when she called on court coaching "a disaster"

Davenport fans are so lucky.
You guys have gotten like 5 goodbyes.

All I got was DWTS epic fail. :tape:

Oh, and I'm sure Sharapova will retire from tennis via a "doodle" and then move back to Siberia.

Smaller mind notice things like this that don't matter. I was in hurry and just posted the post without looking, since when is incorrect spelling a crime.

I am really liking Lindsay as a commentator. She's doing a great job. And her saying that she and Kim have been exchanging emails in the past few weeks with Kim asking her about travelling on tour with a baby and returning to the tour was definitely some exciting insight... :D

I have heard she's been bitchy on air when speaking about Jelena Jankovic. ;) But I don't know.

Overall, Lindsay is a great commentator. Very thoughtful analysis. And I agree with the creator of this thread that she usually doesn't over-share information. Sometimes I wish she spoke a little bit less slowly - like sometimes she over-emphasizes words in a sentence as if we were five year olds. Maybe she's too used to speaking to her son.

As a Lindsay fan, I am very grateful to still have her on the scene. To be honest, the women's matches today have been boring but because of Lindsay, I want to watch. Really I just want to listen, because I'm much more engaged by what she's saying rather than the awful tennis on the screen. Like earlier today, I LOVED when Lindsay criticized the WTA's implementation of on-court coaching. She is a tennis purist, like Mary Carillo, and said that tennis should remain an individual sport and that it makes the women look weak, and inferior to the men, who do not use on-court coaching. I think at one point she called it a "mess." :lol: Wich it is, and it obviously does nothing for the fans. And that kind of candid, honest speaking by LD is in stark contrast to Mary Joe Fernandez, who was often too timid to really speak her mind and insult new WTA rules. I feel like Mary Joe always pretends to like things, like on-court coaching and the US Open series bullshit. :p

LOL. I guess Lindsay just likes the spotlight more than Monica, after all.

Lindsay is on FSN. Is that a cable channel or on the net?
