Chris and Chris in the Morning are like a tasteless breakfast.

She talks like a clueless robot.

Re: ESPN viewers: Does Chris McKendry annoy the hell outta of you too?

These past two days have been absolutely horrible. Yesterday they said "Victoria Ivanovic"

Today, during Lisicki-Schiavone, they said that Lisicki reached the semis last year (she reached the semis in 2011). Then they showed a list saying:
2010-QF
2011-SF
2012-QF
Even though she didn't play in 2010 due to injury and they meant 2009

And they said she beat Wozniacki at Wimbledon when Wozniacki was ranked #1, and that she has beaten Sharapova numerous times

During Kirilenko-Robson, they said it was Kirilenko's first match as a top 10 player, ignorantly not knowing she reached the QF last week in Eastbourne. And they said with her R1 loss she will be out of the top 10, which is not completely true because if Jankovic, Stosur, Vinci, etc. fail to reach R3, then she will stay #10 unless someone else has a huge run.

They said that a Serena-Stosur R4 would be big as Stosur has been playing well. Do they not realize she is having her worst year in quite a while and is in absolutely horrendous form?

Pam Shriver said that before Kerber's 2011 USO SF run that she had never heard of her, which is complete crap since Kerber had definitely played Venus in a few slams I remember.

EDIT-Oh, and during Hantuchova-Zakopalova, they said that Zakopalova is known for smashing her racket a lot and having tantrums . They probably meant Zahlavova-Strycova

Its too bad we can't have Bonnie Bernstein back. But as is always the case, all of the good broadcasters go to NFL football.

Chris always seems so nervous. But I think Evert is worse; she should know better .

She also says that Stosur's signature shot is her BHDTL, and that Ana and Aga play a similar style of tennis

She never ceases to amaze me.

Indeed she is.

But someone should make a WWW thread between her and Hannah Storm.

Lets see how that would turn out

At least Hannah Storm has personality and can carry a conversation. McKendry is always so wooden & awkward. I used to think she was only this way because she was new, but it's been three years and she still seems to not be fitting in.

Kendry is annoying, as much as Navratilova. I can't stand either of them.
But I love Mary Carillo, Pam, Mary Joe and Lindsay.

A little bit yes, she also sounds like Pam Shriver which is never a good thing.

Tennis commentary is brutal. Because in this country sadly Tennis has become niche sport. It doesn't face scrutiny. If the NFL commentators were this bad, they would never hear the end of it.
