They are actually enjoyable to watch! It's very relaxing, and I forgot how Chrissy has such a soft voice.

Anything with Pam Shriver is amazing.

I'd really like them to just stick her in the booth by herself one day and see how she commentates.

I like how Pam is making fun of her hair back then.

Nice team

If ESPN was smart, they could do what the NBA on TNT did with Barkley for Shriver and Evert.......They have great, fun personalities that could easily get a fan base outside of tennis.

At a Roland Garros in the mid 2000's they stuck Mary Joe and Pam in women's matches back to back days completely by themselves. They were much more like the BBC/Eurosport counterparts and tended to be much more silent.

What I always liked about Pam and Chris as commentators is that they commentate on the match.............And same with even Tracy Austin sometimes. They don't do the sappy cliche' storytelling about a player's life for the 100th time, or even if they do it, they move on, and get right back to the match.

Too much reminiscing.

Not too bad at all though, and sometimes, the viewer needs that, especially from an all time legend in Evert, as well as a great doubles and very respectable singles player.

They know the game, and I rather have that then shaky, clumsy announcing from Ted Robinson.

I like both of them too. Anything with Pam is good stuff. She has a great sense of humor. I like Chris's voice.

She shouldn't reference a match she clearly is not familiar with.

Can't win them all...better than the famous Russian player Daniela Hantuchova...heard that on an international live stream. Or remember Ana Ivanovic...you remember how she played in a swimming pool and called the club when she saw Monica Seles win the French Open?

Wasn't he the one who was SO convinced that Venus was wearing grass court shoes during the French Open that he went to the tournament director just to find out he was dead wrong :tape: ?
