Ok. Let's see. She thinks Ana and Aga play similar games. She has said before that a letcord winner was a dropshot. She picked Tatishvili as the dark horse of the tournament (She lost to Morita 1r). She just called Sveta a "serve and volleyer." And this is truly just the tip of the iceberg. Calling her ignorant would be a nice way to describe her.

I like her, but she does say really stupid things...she just said that Kuznetsova was a server/volleyer.....

I also remember last year's AO where she said (I'm paraphrasing here) that McHale would easily beat Jankovic in the 3rd round, that Jankovic has no weapons, and this is an easily winnable match for McHale.

When JJ wins 62 60 over the supreme McHale Chrissie came back saying, "That was the best I've seen Jankovic play."

I'd love to hear what other commentators say about her in private.

Re: Does Chris Evert bother anyone else as a match commentator?

My favorite Chrissie line is from the Zheng-Serena match at Wimbledon last year. She said that Zheng had never played on a Center Court before.

I think she is terrible. I always cringe when she opens her mouth.

Re: Does Chris Evert bother anyone else as a match commentator?

She offers the same, tired "analysis" during every match. It was cute at first, but now it's beyond unbearable. She rambles endlessly during every Sharapova match about her opponent needing to hit angles/dropshots/slices to beat her.

And during the Sharapova/Lisicki match last year on Court 1, I distinctly remember her saying "Sabine Lisicki just comes to life whenever she steps onto Centre Court at Wimbledon!"

What's so bad about this? She had an opinion, made a mistake and owned up to it. That actually was the best JJ's played.

Re: Does Chris Evert bother anyone else as a match commentator?

I don't mind Chrissie, but the one thing that bothers me is that she uses everyone's full name. It's OK to use just a first or last name. Honestly, Chris McKendry bothers me far more.

No it wasn't; JJ produced much better tennis during the late 2006-2008 circa. McHale makes a lot of players look better than they are.
