I'm sure the camera guy was drunk(er than usual) last night, fliming from over her shoulder as she talked to Mats...
My sentiments exactly and I couldn't have put it any better. The worst is Wilander 'giving his insights' into WTA when clearly he doesn't have any clue. The best was when he rated Wozniacki as a powerhitter. Don't let me start about him pronouncing the names... as if he heard them a second ago.

BBCi showing Venus-Szavay and Safina-Pavlyuchenkova. WTA overload At least they've got their darling Andy on now, it'll keep John Lloyd happy

I can understand the Beeb and British Eurosport both want to air Murray, and I'd even like to see some of it, but grr, two channels and no choice.

And the Beeb has a second channel on interactive and is wasting it on a replay of the Williams-Szavay debacle.

That always cracks me up Mind you, it was worse last year when we had that awful man presenting it (Robbie Nock, or something.) What a liability he is!

He kept going on last year about Jarnkovic.

I remember Frew "couldn't care less about the WTA" McMillan saying something really inaccurate about Wozniacki's game as well.

Sharapova-Shvedova into a third set, Azarenka-CSN just starting, so the BBC decide to show a replay of Murray's "win" over Tipsarevic Ok, the commentators have been working since 11am, but couldn't they at least just show the match?

BBC itself is showing Murray Though they switch from BBC2 to BBC1 midway I believe.

I cant believe Vika v Ana isnt on PC, looks like an awesome match up that I really cant wait for. 8 v 9 always sounds Without realising who it is

Am I the only one who quite likes the Game, Set and Mats? Its nice if you missed a match etc to hear the catch up, but its no where near as polished as the Sky Sports analysis.

I reckon, it makes me want to smash my TV everytime they're in the middle of a WTA match and cross over to a ATP match, especially when it hasnt even started Fox Sports annoys the hell out of me... in saying that it's better than nothing. Aus Open coverage is pretty good though of course

Eurosport player is bad this year. I wanted to watch Radwańska sisters and all I have is US Open commercial...

Also there were 7 courts at first, and then they reduced it to 5 (Chatrier, Lenglen, no.1, no.2, no.7), and three of them don't work now :/
