Does Sharapova marketing machine pay bonuses to announcers?

I'm at a loss of words. Every single announcer on the Tennis Channel is praising Maria whether she plays well or not. It's like an episode of the Twilight Zone. Navratilova is all up Sharapova's ass, to the point where she could report on what Maria had for lunch, praising her gutsy serving, right before a double fault, then she skips the commentary all together until the next point. It's comical. The only explanation I can see is that Maria's management or public relations pays for positive commentary. I just can't see that a knowledgeable commentator such as Navratilova or Davenport would withhold legitimate criticism, unless they were paid to do so.

That's how it's been since Wimbledon 2004. Don't even get me started with Dick Enberg, he's on her vag like there's no tomorrow.

Re: Does Sharapova marketing machine pay bonuses to announcers?

if it's true, Chris Evert is working too good for that money ))))

TF , are you serious? Lindsay Davenpoport and Navratilova being payed for nice comments is not even delusional, it's a complete and utter bullshit

Re: Does Sharapova marketing machine pay bonuses to announcers?

It's funny, I don't think there's ever been a bigger gulf between the commentators and the fans. The crowd never roots for Sharapova, tennis fans generally think she is an unlikeable, boring, robotic cheating twat. But commentators are all about Maria!

Honestly though commentators get paid to promote the sport, the higher the ratings the more they get paid, the more they talk up their manly ass glamazon girl, the more people they hope will watch.

BTW even Chanda Rubin and her male co-commentator on USO Live were up her ass.

You are DELUDED if you think Maria had more crowd support than Petrova.


Which is sad b/c Petrova is the least popular and least famous player in the top 20

Re: Does Sharapova marketing machine pay bonuses to announcers?

I'm pretty sure this HingisGOAT person has been eating lead paint chips.

A player that has won the career slam with a non-diverse game and limited athleticism almost solely because she can mentally beat almost anyone but Serena is respected by former players?

Shocking!

Oh, and yeah, the fans sure hate her.

Why cant people just accept the fact that people like Maria, her game and her persona. She is a good ambassador for the sport. She doesn't threaten line judges.

Same thing with Serena, Mardy, Kim, Roger, Rafa, Caroline or other media darlings. Certain people capture the media's favor, that's all.
