Mary Joe Fernandez is a terrible commentator. I wish ESPN would fire her. For someone who as a player had to rely on great court smarts and guile to overcome a lack of physicality and raw power she comes across as utterly clueless on the game during her commentary. Not even understanding such basic things as excellent defense and consistency forces errors (again something she should know of all people), that smart point construction causes errors, and that you cant just make no unforced errors when you either are playing or are forced to play a high risk game or up against someone who makes virtually none herself (eg- the Bondarenko vs Oudin match). That along with her excessive ass kissing of the Williams, Sharapova, Kim, and any other player she likes or has ties to either through Fed Cup or through her husband being an agent.

And who is she to keep dissing the mental strength of young U.S players when she choked badly in the 2 biggest matches she ever played- the 91 Australian Open semis and the 93 French Open final. It is so annoying to here how critical she is of teenage kids.

I agree with you about her ASS KISSING of Sharapova and the Williams, otherwise, I think she is an excellent announcer.
