...starting at 13:25BST. Maybe if the Serena/Jen and Momo/Elena matches are long and go beyond 13:25, they'll show them until it's time for Tiger Tim. Or maybe I am too optimistic; they'll probably show highlights of Tim's old matches ala "And let's see how our Tim progressed to the Quarter final, the first Englishman to do this since X years...blah blah blah".

Anyway, just wanted to alert everyone in the UK.

ps that's on BBC2 tomorrow.

well actually I remmber a few years ago they did show Seles against Anabel before Henman goes on court, however, it sucks big becuase Anabel has to withdraw in the middle of the match. 1325 sounds like a really early time for start. (since centre court don't start until 1230 BST) I think there is a good chance they will show Amelie elena match. If Jenn Serena went really long, we maybe lucky to see the third set as well :D

let's cross our fingers

And wait until Wimbledon starts... They're gonna do our head in by saying 25000 times that he's going to win it. NO CHANCE!

be really funny if Tim won the Roland Garros title and then lost in the 1st round at Wimbly.:):o wonder would the Brits be really mad at him or would they still be happy coz he won RG??

Yeah thats what I was thinking - I was watching it yesterday and Tim hasn t beaten a seeded player(omly other quater he has reached besides wimby) and then think he has a legitimate chance of Winning RG! they won t show cap/serena or Amelie -

Tiger Tim? :haha:

Meh... it's still better in England, though... I'd rather watch non-stop Tim, than non-stop Rodduck.

...what actually will happen is the third set of Capriati-Serena will be still be going, but instead of showing it they will have it in the background while Sue and Andrew and John natter about Timothy... :)

I doubt they will show any womens matches, although they did show Venus v. Zvonareva last year on grandstand.

We will probably get Sue Barker Barking on how much she could love to shag Tiger Tim, and what a fantastic chance he has of winning RG, and that he could win the next 4 slams.

:hearts: Sue Barker! :hearts: Is it that time already when Sue hits our screens with her awesome coverage of Wimbledon.I especially enjoy her court-side interviews with Venus on the second saturday of Wimbledon. Although haven't seen one in 3 years. :confused:

the worst thing is, he started it! i hope he gets to play coria/moya so they can show him the difference between true clay courters, and a flukey streak :haha: hell, i hope Juan EMBARASSES his ass tomorrow :)

Let's speculate what bbc will do after rain delay

My guess is that they know they have no chance to show Tim's match, thereforeswitch to their more popular programmes such as 'through the key hole' Quincy or Diagnostic murder or even better they are gonna show a reply of Llodra again :D :D
