View Full Version : Pants BBC coverage of ladies events

Has anybody else noticed how unbalanced the bbc coverage of wimbledon has been? It seems like they will only put a ladies game on if they've run out of mens games to show.

I really think they're taking the piss, yesterday for example- they had the Lopez game on 2 of the interactive screens and then when they finished we had to sit through sue barker asking boris becker for the 10000000000000th time if we're getting too excited about andrew murry before they put on the mauresmo game! By this time there was only 2 games of the second set left! I also noted that in their regular round ups of who's won what the mauresmo likhotsova game was never mentioned.

Do you think that the BBC have some kind of problem with the ladies game? and specifically with Amelie? (Since they showed Maria's game from the moment she stepped out of the locker room, although by this time they were running out of mens tennis to show) Or are they just taking the piss?
