Oh so good that we can indulge in national pride! I'm with you all on this one though, mainly because it was only when Tim and the Canadian lost in the French last year that I really started to enjoy it, and I hate clay court tennis. So, once again, I will be hoping that they both go the way of recent years and lose early. Still, I doubt we will really have to wish too hard, they both tend to do a perfectly good job of being crap on clay. Have either of them made it to the first weekend?
The only issue with them losing early is that there is more time for the press to hype up their 'chances' at Wimbledon, now if we could only get them to forget to turn up at SW19.
As for the rest of the British coverage, I remember reading an interview with Sue Barker when she said that she would be in Paris to cover the tournament, so maybe the Beeb will have some decent coverage this year. Bear in mind last year Sue was stuck in Epsom, 25 years after her win there, I doubt they will be so ignorant of Virginia Wade at Wimby this year. But again, if the Tiger loses early, maybe the Beeb will just show some Touring Cars instead!
