Apparently according to darrin and Volcana, we're supposed to accept these as gospels because she won 18 slams.

Not to mention kinda pathetic considering the number of Maria matches she's commentated on in the past couple years.

Nerdss are offended that one of the greatest every played doesnt know how many times a perennial journeywoman played in the parking lots. Shocking.

Your posts in this thread are truly the most purposely blind fanboy/fangirl ravings on this board. This board is WTAWorld. That's saying a lot. In no world is Kuznetsova a serve and volleyer. In fact half the time she's too passive and tries to rally more than she should. Mary Joe (who was a top 5 player, so she has to be right) was looking at Chrissie like she was crazy when she said that. Closing your eyes and pretending Evert knows everything is no better than someone pretending their favorite player is amazing and can never lose any match unless they are injured or tanking.

You are disgusting. LOL trying to go for the 'pro must be right' and it backfired. Does anybody wants to insult this person? I pick my own opinion because it is backed by another professional who has 18 Grand Slams.

It's going to come as a shock to a lot of people here, but Chris Evert knows WAY more about tennis than almost anyone on the this forum. He father was a coach, she grew up in the game, and she was one of the foremost practitioners of it.

If she says they have the same type of game, and you DON'T see that, the objective response is that YOU need to look harder. Unless you're Margaret Court, Steffi Graf, Billie Jean King, Martina Navratilova or Serena, there is NO doubt Chris Evert opinion is more educated than yours. NO doubt.

You don't have to like her, but if you don;t see what she sees, chances are you're the one that's blind, not her.

NOTE: BJK and Arthur Ashe were my tennis heroes. I hated when Evert supplanted BJK. But Chris Evert had more influence on the on-court-game of women's tennis than any other player in history. She MADE women's tennis a baseline game. (Not a virtue, but a reality.) She's an Authority. Haters gonna hate, but they gotta know that's all they got.
If what you say here is true, then why is she so ignorant about today's players?
Her countless mistakes in the booth are exceedingly embarrassing.
If she wants to call herself an expert of the game, the first thing to do is to know the facts about as many players as possible, or not pretend that she knows.
Study up, watch them play, do some research. If she's getting paid for her expert analysis, then she needs to earn that pay with stated facts. Who cares how many damn slam titles she won if she screwing up in the booth.
Also, and sorry, but knowing how to play the game as it was in the past does not automatically make her an expert of the game as it is played in the present.
'Osmosis' only works for plant Biology.
The facts (weaknesses, and strengths, of the players that she is commenting on)... won't simply magically materialize in her head while she's in the booth.

Hell, what you just posted makes her ignorance all the more embarrassing, tbh.

Actually I can't totally disagree about Maria's forehand being her best shot.

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

Oh well so what Im a Chris fan and would LOVE to hear her commentary especially over the English Commentator Sam Smith who we get hear. In her interview of Radwanska tonite she said good luck in the semi finals (she had progressed to the Quarter finals). Courier and Todd Woodbridge ramble on and on with dry boring game analysis with no emotion or feeling of the match.

Chris was one of the greatest tacticians the game has ever seen and mind players. So she is not 100% up on all the current players, lets face it she is their because she is a familiar and loved face from the games past and people love that familiarity. She probably does it a lot for the money and I don't blame her her generation got pittance compared to today's crop and for what she achieved she deserves more. Keep going Chrissy you have my vote

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

The issue appears to be that Evert does not keep up with the contemporary game. Tennis is played very differently now compared to when she was winning. Maybe she is knowledgeable about players from her era, but it is very clear that this knowledge does not translate to the modern game.

But i actually really enjoy some of the comments. She fails so much that it's funny. I hope she keeps commentating.
