I'm just curious, what is your opinion of Corina Morariu as a commentator? Isn't she great? She is so unbiased yet funny and amusing at the same time. I also like all the background information she has on all the players prior to the match. She also gives great analysis and great interviews after the match. She seems very friendly. A lot more so than all the ESPN commentators. Kind of reminds me a lot of Mary Jo Fernandez, just less monotone.

What do you think of CorinaGoddess?

I love her and think she's way more pleasant and grounded than idiots like Mary Carillo, whose commentary I've come to detest.

I have to agree she's really good. I think its because she's as close as u can get to a young retired player. AND she's a nice person unlike gimmelslob.

BUT she does also say that daniela underachieved which makes me sad each time :bigcry:

i find her voice to be really irritating. other than that though, she's pretty good.

i actually find her condescending and hate when she tries to belittle/emasculate cliff drysdale by mocking everything he says. she and davenport sound so much alike it's frightening. every time i see them i can't help but picture them scissoring.

Anyway, I think she's pretty good. She's fair and not too bad to listen to. Her humour is kinda cheesy though.

I like the TTC's primary lineup: Corina, Martina, Jimmy, Lindsey. It's such a pleasure listening to them rather than JMac, Carillo, PMac.

I wish TTC could bring in MJF and sometimes Pam along with much more tournament coverage - like from day one of tourneys rather than start with SemiFinals. MOre WTA tournaments, too.

Couldn't disagree more, which just goes to show you, different strokes...

Personally, I find her lisp incredibly annoying, almost as much as her cloying idolatry of the sisters. She is the antithesis of an objective reporter.

I think it's great that drysdale get's handled by corina, cliff thinks he knows everything about mens & women's and belittles women's tennis.

well when you put limitations like making it for american citizens only......


anyway i'm not american
don't have tennis channel
but i've heard Corinna commentate many times at the USO last year and some matches at Stuttgart and YEC last year and World Team Tennis.
I actually REALLY like her. She talks about the technical aspect of the tennis but also the mental/emotional part. She's frank in a funny/charming way and she's self-deprecating which i like.

but she's human and she has biases (against JANKOvic for instance), but that's fine as all commentators do. fortunately she doesn't go over the top with it tho.

She is pretty good but Tennis Channel is awful.

Corina is really great! She is one of the few commentators who has actually played against or knows something of the players on the tour. She respects all players and isn't quick to throw them under the bus like most of the ESPN commentators.

I loved this year when she interviewed Venus at Standford after her qurterfinal win and Venus acknowledged that they played a competitive three set match a couple years ago and how Corina played well. I thought it was really cute. :lol:

She and Davenport are a great team.

They are unbias, unpretentious, and both give great insights on what is going on.
Davenport on the different strategies and techniques of the players, and Moriariu on the "raw" state of each player as the match progresses: body launguage, psychological disposition, movement on the court, interaction between player and coaches ( when coaching is allaowed), time between point, etc..


I also appreaciate the fact they are self-deprecating, especially when they talk about their double team thoughout their career.
And most importantly, they do not overdo it, let's say a la Tracy Austin for example.

Lindsay and Corina are great. I loved during this one match (in between some point or something) they were talking about their doubles paring and Corina goes, "Lindsay, remember that one time you hit me in the head with the ball?" And Lindsay goes, "Well duh of course I remember. I was trying to wake you up." :lol: You could tell she was joking but she said it without apology or humor. I loved it.

I kinda have a problem when she's commentating with Lindsay.

I'm surprised she's able to commente so clearly with her face so far up Lindsay's ass.
I mean I love Lindsay but Corina adores her.

I also hate seeing her because she dresses the opposite of Sharapova.
Sharapova at times dresses like she stole a shower curtain out of her grandma's bathroom.
Corina dresses like she stole some clothes off a Bratz doll.

Wawrinka's ass.

However you feel, we should be seeing lots of the crew, soon. As I understand it, TTC will show the YEC. What's so great about it is that if you miss live matches you wanted to see, they show them again and again at different times.
