Re: US tennis announcers are really bad

Lucy Ahl? Fred Stolle? The various crews from ITV, British, Australian, and otherwise, that ESPN is using? You need to get specific, because what I'm hearing is a lot of bad commentating (plain too much talking and know-it-alls) from people across the globe. The United States doesn't have a patent on bad commentating. Sorry. Even when the commentator is decent--focusing on the match and the strategies, etc., used--even insightful, they can be brought down to earth by a bad partner.

Some make you want to stab yourself in the ear, but I usually turn off the sound if it gets too bad. I really enjoy the matches that ESPN just streams sans commentary.

You are entitled to your opinion but I totally disagree. I do like Aussie Kerryn Pratt. I think she is doing well.

Re: US tennis announcers are really bad

I can't comment too much on how the commentators are from other countries, but I do agree that here in the states we have some really, really bad ones.

My favorite is when Hannah Storm and/or Chris McKendry just appear. :vomit:

Re: US tennis announcers are really bad

They just invented this button on the remote called the mute button, you should try it out.

Chris Evert is a clueless commentator.

Re: US tennis announcers are really bad

Partially because every tennis commentator is connected somehow to the game very personally. Tennis is so small and closed you really don't see that in any other sport. No one can seriously say their opinions about players except successful ex-players. Even then, players like Austin and Evert seem to seek admiration, appreciation, or redemption based on personal relationships.
