Stupid things commentators say

Chris Evert and Cliff Drysdale were discussing how Kerber had such a good year last year but why now she has slipt. Evert basically said it's both physical and mental, and then Drysdale asked Shriver for her opinion....she waited a second and said..."I think it's a very different feeling to play with the roof being closed. There's so many more people watching this match because all the other courts have stopped play..."

hablo, PLP and fed_up like this.

Re: Stupid things commentators say

During the Sharapova v. Halep match yesterday, Chris Evert called Svitolina a power player. Twice. Grouped her with Muguruza.

Re: Stupid things commentators say

Some commentator said they wouldn´t need the roof this year, cause the prognosis is two weeks without any rain.

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.

Now that Chrissie got her shit together nowadays (doing her homework - making informed judgement/analysis) the real hack Shriver is finally getting exposed.

French commentator thinks Rittner is Kerber's mum. Come on, Angie is not that ugly

Evert also kept saying that we should ignore Sharapova's PED use and embrace her for everything great shes done for the game....... I kept waiting for her to elaborate on what great things shes done for the game.

I must have missed her fight for equality. World class tennis facility she opened in her hometown of "Russia" (coughFloridacough) .... Keeping the sport clean of PED's.

The only thing sharapova has done is give the world more cavities.....

Edit: Except she didnt say PED, because the announcers refuse to even talk about what she was suspended for. Just slight relations to it. "She did bring her suspension on herself, but shes taken on full responsibility for it."

Meanwhile Venus is in a car accident and thats all they can talk about at Wimbledon..........

Re: Stupid things commentators say

Evert saying " I think it's impossible to be number 1 and win slams without a huge weapon."

Meanwhile, Kerber did exactly that last year.

Re: Stupid things commentators say

Commentators think they have to fill time. The stupidest i hear is about how Wozniacki is being more aggressive when she makes deep runs. I just watched her 2009 US Open final. She is not more aggressive

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Stupid things commentators say

I wouldn't call any of Kerber's shots "a big weapon" but ok.

Re: Stupid things commentators say

On British Eurosport today the studio commentators were talking about Kerber reuniting with her old coach (Benny Ebrahimzadeh) who's working alongside Torben Beltz. Annabel Croft said she wasn't going to attempt saying his name as she couldn't pronounce his surname, then Miles Maclagan chipped in and said he could pronounce it: "Benny Ibrahimovic". And smiled, seemingly proud of himself.
