Yea Chris Fowler is only currently one of the best sports broadcasters. Definitely one of the best at what he does. Doing tennis is like his second job. Maybe you should watch College GameDay sometime. Guy does a great job! There isn't a sport he can't cover.
You sir are the idiot! Leave it to a tennis fan to knock on Chris Fowler. what a joke.
That's the point though. He should stick to what he knows. Can't wait to the Tennis Channel takes over the event. NO MORE FOWLER when that happens.
You're being too sensitive. There are tennis fans that do not know about Venus's line, especially men. Is that such a terrible thing? I haven't seen him at this year's Wimbledon(no TV right now), but at past slams, I like the perspective he brings. I think he's easier for sports fans(who are casual tennis fans) to relate to.
I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

In the scheme of things, not knowing about EleVen is a pretty minor blip in knowledge compared to the vast array of ignorance displayed by commentators in general. For example, several commentators this year had no idea about Chakvetadze's mugging/robbery until told on air by a colleague. This was happening months after the incident... it's a shame that journalists/commentators/etc don't always feel the need to fully arm themselves with all the information out there, but it happens all the time unfortunately.
Let's see because he constantly talks about personal things about players like he knows stuff, Venus is one of the few American players in the 2nd round, It is a big deal to have your own clothing line, much bigger than Nike making a special cardigan or Maria wearing shorts. Now I'm not saying he shouldn't know those facts but what I am saying is if he can know and talk about those things then yes he should know about Venus' clothing line.
If Andy Roddick or God forbid Sharapova had a clothing line do you think he would take the time to find out what is the big, interesting news in relation to tennis about them? Please...
and the idiots still don't know that Eleven is her clothing line.... they are just idiots that don't feel they need to even take the time to do the basic research on players they know little about. They just went on about eleven being Venus' favorite number and now Patrick McEnroe even got in on the idiocy.
