    Does she not have any concept of boundaries at all? Why they turn that woman loose with a mic on some hapless celebrity in the audience (Tony Bennett) and let her drone on and on about things that nobody tuned in to hear about is a mystery to me.

    "How does it feel to be 85 and still recording albums?" seriously, Pam? seriously? How about "Well, Tony, your voice is holding up well for such an old guy. You must be about dead by now, huh?"

    She doesn't even do a credible job in calling a match, for goodness sake (unless it's Serena's match and then all she does is suck up the whole time.)

    There must be someone else better who would be willing to do the work.

    Shes disrespectful and does not show any sign of guilt about it. The tennis world is better off without a person like her.

    Just cannot understand why ESPN keeps her employed in spite of the major slights and faux pas she has delivered on and off-air: (1). Slight and roll of eyes about Wickmayer during interview with Wozi at previous US Open. (2) Embarrassment of Melanie Odin's sister. (3) Unfortunate comments about James Blake while he was playing a match, whether he could hear her or not!

    Pre and Post-Match interviews are painful to watch! Sad that she remains year after year. In the words of tennis players C'mon!
