    Too much commentator comments when tennis match is blocked out‼️ Also - the overpowering serve in men’s tennis makes the match uninteresting. Women’s match points are better to watch and more competitive‼️
    You are welcome for the suggestions‼️????‍♂️

    I have at last found somewhere to say what a rotten commentator John McEnroe is waffle waffle can he please be removed.

    I usually switch channels if I can, but not always possible. Could someone tell him that we who watch tennis watch because we play or played and are not idiots.

    I went to the sharapova halep match last night. The match displayed such exciting shot making and I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. Was anxious to watch it on tennis channel the next morning. Tracy Austin commentated and ruined a fabulous match. She turned something exciting into a drab experience. This is a sport!! She needs to show some excitement during the big points. Make us want MORE! Non tennis players would tune out instantly to her monotone voice. She just doesn't have what it takes to make this sport fun for tv viewership.

    Horrible evert/shriver commentary on simon halup match. Both are just terrible and negative.

    Please, please tell John McEnroe to SHUT UP during points. Even better, fire him. Or at least remove him from all Federer matches--his jealousy fairly drips from his endless commentary (about himself).

    Absolutely love John McEnroe!
    He makes his commentary fun and interesting!
    Miss him at Tennis Channel which is so so boring!
    Dread listening to those commentators
    Wish they'd wake up!
    Please bring McEnroe back to Tennis Channel
    Would make everything so great!

    Patrick McEnroe and Rob Koenig are (separately) the cream of the crop. Knowledgeable about the game without feeling they have to show off their knowledge; judicious in their choice of words and timing. Soft-spoken but still capable of delivering a well-reasoned opinion firmly and, while their passion for the game is obvious, they rarely allow it to cloud their judgement or their delivery.

    No other sport has the negativity in announcing that tennis does. Most announcers act like they know way more than the greatest players in the game. Listen for 5 minutes and you'll hear talk of nerves, he should be doing this, she shouldn't be doing that, "what a terrible shot", "what an awful, bonehead decision." I turn on tennis to watch tennis, and these announcers make it about themselves. Football, baseball, basketball announcers actually sound happy to be there. Tennis announcers make it feel like torture. Robbie Koenig and his crew are obviously the best. You might actually hear tennis for a few points and forget they're there. But most others (Patrick, Gilbert, John, Carrillo, annicone, Austin, on and on) are so God aweful that I have to put it on mute. I've been playing and watching tennis my whole life and I have no idea where this negativity comes from.

    How come no one ever mentions that John McEnroe was probably the best net player the game ever saw?
    I love hiut off a m but for the first time ever I shut off a tennis match because John and Patrick just would not stop talking for one minute. It was impossible to watch the match

    I think it is time for some new broadcasters with a fresh commentary. Martina and Lindsey seem to do a good job of not being so subjective!

  • Joyce Johnson - 4 years ago

    Mary Carrilo, Chris Everet, Lindsey Davenport are all too mouthy And this new person commentating the delayed matches you can't understand a word she says especially if there's a good point she gets excited and speaks her native language whatever that may be
