Mary Joe is one of the best commentators there is.

This is made painfully clear when she is sitting next to Mary Carillo, who today stated that Venus was 15 years older than Serena.

Mary Joe is the best female commentator in the U.S. by far, and I really don't think she's that biased. She never said that Venus and Serena were the favorites at the French. To not talk about Venus and Serena being the favorites during Wimbledon would be ridiculous.

Carillo obviously meant to say Venus is 15 months older than Serena, not 15 years older. But what I don't understand is why sometimes when a commentator misspoke and the other commentator sitting right next to them and doesn't correct the mistake. In this case, it was Mary Joe and she didn't say anything. Maybe she was not paying attention or whatever was going on...:confused:

She is captain of Fed Cup, works for an American sports channel, favors American players when it is realistic to do so, is an American herself, hmm yeah, that's far out. I wonder why she didn't choose Safina as her favorite with all of those.... 3rd round appearances. She's stupid not to rattle on about other players during Serena's match. Come Safina's match I'm sure she'll be expatiating on her chances rather than the Williams'.

MJF, as echoed by the majority of posters in this thread, is one of the best commentators. No question about it.

She's realistic and not biased whatsoever.

:lol: I heard that too and was like, "Whaaaaatt!?" Too funny.

But I agree with MJ. A Williams sister has won 7 of the last 9 Wimbledon titles and there's been only one year (2006) without at least one of them in the championship match. They should have been seeded one and two, but it's all good. I still pick them to play for all the marbles next Saturday.

I think Mary Joe is saying what Venus and Serena want to hear partly because she wants them to play for her in Fed Cup. She had not always pulled for them during her commentaries until 2 years ago. She was not in anyway blatantly critical and biased against the Williamses like Carillo, Shriver and Austin, but she was not as "nice" to them as she is right now. She's trying really hard and seems to over doing it. These days, her commentaries on the sisters are almost like Patrick McEnroe and Andy Roddick. The ass kissing can be nauseating. Anyone remember how much Mary Joe's nose used to be under Sharapova's skirt? :o

Mary Joe:tape::tape:

I would suspect the talk is due to Serena and Venus being the best at Wimbledon the last few years. They've proven themselves and it is only logical they would have a few more words than other players. Even if Serena or Venus lose, you would still hear from Fernandez. You are making a deal over nothing.

Mary Jo and Mary Carillo aren't academic-types, they probably don't know the difference between 15 years and 15 months.

Exactly. Pat McEnroe has had a love affair with Andy Roddick for years from the commentary booth. Justin Gimelstob has too.

MJF is playing her cards right. The Fed Cup is in her reach after the team's phenomenal semi win, and MJF is playing it smart.....kissing a little Williams booty in order to get them to play in the Final.

:lol: I feel the same, but it's mostly Mary Carillo that does that. It kind of annoyed me today. But, I love MJ. She is the most unbiased of all of the American commentators in my opinion and it's only right that she give the reigning champion and finalist their props at this tournament.

Another thing I think they got wrong was that MJ said Serena was seeded No. 3. :confused: Isn't she seeded No. 2 and Vee seeded No. 3? Otherwise how could Venus be in the same half as Safina seeded No. 1?

MJF really is as charismatic as a hung fish. I'm sorry guys, but i feel for the American viewers who have to endure that dull, monotone commentary. The only time she dares laugh is at something truly mundane:

'Oh Serena hit a volley (hysterics)'.

She's the American equivalent of Jo Durie. Well not strictly true, because MJF isn't a walrus:lol:

Thank you!!!! Although I'm sure Mary Joe's feelings may be spared in this instance just cause you don't agree with her doesnt give you the right to throw such a huge insult at a woman who has personally done noething to you..ugh some people have SOOO much nerve its disgusting.(Although I may have done the same once or twice so I'll get off my high horse now LOL) ANYWAY I think she IS the best female commentator for the women and she is usually very accurate and stays on top of her tennis knowledge. I'm glad she is around and hope she stays around.

I noticed at the RG and now today at Wimby, she is unaware that there are two Radwanskas. Whenver Ula's result would display, she would say Aga just won her match. Maybe they should start putting the "A" or "U" before their names to help her out. :spit:

I totally disagree with you. I've got a lot of matches on DVD that Mary Joe has commentated on and all of them have been Lindsay matches and I've found her to be articulate and very unbiased towards Lindsay and calls a match as she sees it and knows when to shut up and let the play do the talking. While I respect your opinon I don't agree with it at all.

Oh yeah I remember that.

You know that is something I have always respected about Mary Jo. She obviously was very close to Lindsay (maids of honor at each others wedding right?) yet she didn't let her friendship with Linds completely cloud her judgment. Yes she was somewhat partial to Lindsay, but it was far from obnoxious or annoying. She admired and respected Lindsay and her game and you could tell that, but she could criticize her and point out a flaw or a deficiency. Tennis is a very incestuous sport, so many of the commentators have relationships with players, so much so that you just have to live with it. The main issue is if they can take of the "I'm this guy/gals Davis Cup/Fed Cup captain or I am married to this guys agent" hat and do their job properly. I'll say MJ is doing a better job of that than PMac is. :tape: :lol:
