I don't mind it much during the match but what's up with all these chat sessions in the booth when there's tennis they could be showing? It's starting to get really annoying especially since they do it with Justin Gimelstob and others... :rolleyes:

I miss USA so much... :bigcry:

The American television networks simply do not comprehend how to broadcast a tennis match. They evidently think we all have ADD or something, and can't watch the same thing for more than 5 minutes. The booth stuff is bad, but so is the incessant flipping around between matches. Pick one and stick with it, for Chrissake. I miss the interactive stuff already.

The coverage was better but If losing USA means losing Tracy I'll take it.:devil::devil: It sounds like the TTC is a working progress. I hope later they can attract quality people because I'm not willing to pay extra cash for the same shit.:tape:

I don't mind switching matches when nothing is going on but they switch when interesting stuff is going on to show the boring match. :lol:

I don't know, Richard can handle Tracy.. :hehehe: I might rather her over too much Justin, Iron eagle, Jimmy Conners (on women), etc...

Lawd have mercy, it doesn't sounds encouraging at all.:help: I've been waiting for TTC for years on cablevision and now that it is available I'm wondering if I should bother.

^ For the win.



Koenig is :worship:

I think we're on the same broadcast as you (TTC). I've never watched coverage swap between matches so much, just out of nowhere, the swap matches. Like, I'm all for swapping over to check in on a SP/MP... BP even.. but this is a tad much.

OK. I didn't bother for the USO because those who I'm interested in will be on ESPN anyway. I was thinking of getting it mainly for the foreign tournaments.

who the hell are the commentators of Elena's match?
those 2 shxt commentators are annoying like hell, praising Oudin and "American" again and again.
Can't the Americans at least have some modesty?

It's Navratilova and Bill Macatee(sp) Nav is annoying period it doesn't matter who is playing. She is too in love with her own voice. They keep mentioning "American" because there have been no American women of consequence besides the WS since Lindsay got knocked up again. :lol: :shrug:

Vlover... You'll need TTC for the AO and FO, but not so much for Wimbledon or the U.S.O. It is useless a lot of the time, but there are so many tournaments that you can't see anywhere else. So it's crap about 60% of the time but you will need the 40% :tape:, and you will grow to quickly hate Murphy Jensen. :fiery: One funny thing is the yoga lady, those spots are almost pornographic. :lol: You will almost be able to see Pete Sampras signature series in you dreams they air it so much. :rolleyes: Best thing you can do is only watch it when you need to, otherwise you will you will be extremely disappointed. :(

Oh, and let's not forget the signature disgusting commercials.
Make sure you don't eat while watching TC:tape:

That's the other thing that's very annoying these skanks with a pound of make-up illustrating stuff.... and I'm like who do they think is their audience? I guess they only think dirty old men are watching. :help:

No Tracy Austin. Amen to that.
I hated listening to her because you could hear the dislike of the Williams Sisters in her voice.
And Ted Robinson isn't horrible but once she gets on her Williams rants ge just eggs her on.

At least on the tennis channel he doesn't seem so creepy when taliking about Sharapova.

They need to do something to distract people from the carcrash tennis we keep seeing.

I feel the same way. It' truly annoying and they act like they're teaching a class after every point. Damn, I just want to enjoy the match not become a professional tennis player.

I don't mind Nav's commentary on Tennis Channel but she can go on some wild tangents. That woman can talk & talk & talk. She seems fair most of the time :unsure:
