Mary Carillo Goofy Commentator
Dum-De-De-Dum-Dum-Dum ought to be the theme song for a lot of these tennis commentators. In particular today we have the ever present ESPN commentator, Mary Carillo.

Today during Venus Williams' match with Marta Domachowska, Mary Carillo decided she'd pay Venus Williams a compliment. The compliment stemmed from Venus and her opponent Sania Mirza standing their ground and refusing to have their third-round match bumped to the next day or to another court after the tournament organizers found themselves facing a backlog due to the late finish of the "daytime" match between Roger Federer and Janko Tipsarevic.

Well, for whatever reason Carillo felt that it was necessary to qualify her compliment, and here is the qualification:

"that's not to say that Venus and her sister don't say all kinds of nutty, goofy stuff as well as contradict themselves....."
So, *drum roll please* the Black Tennis Pro's Goofy Commentator Award goes to, the very goofy Mary Carillo!

Chris Fowler Goofy CommentatorHonorable Mention: The very goofy Chris Fowler. While playing a doubles match this week, Venus disagreed with the umpire, so she voiced her concerns. The very goofy Chris Fowler stated in later commentary:
"Venus went crazy..."
Since when does voicing your concerns to an umpire constitute craziness?
