BBC coverage is SOOOO sexist!!

Honestly - its ladies semi finals day!!! fair enough, we get live coverage of the matches, however during EVERY rain delay and between EVERY match, when it cuts back to the studio coverage, they were almost NEVER mentioned, instead they used these breaks in the studio to discuss even further, Andy Murray, Raf and Federer, show yesterdays interviews with them, and then discuss the other guys quarter final that was still going on!!

John macenroe, john lloyd and sue barker were even having a right old laugh about John macenroe commentating on Serena's semi but keeping one eye on schuttler/clement while he was doing it!!

To add insult to injury, the highlights show has just come on - and for the venus match, instead of showing any of it, they cut straight to 2-2 in the tie break, showing only 6 points!! I dunno how much of the serena match were gonna see - but it probly wont be as much as theyre gonna show of the shuttler match, and they wont be discussing it much either!!

im so sick of hearing about andy murray!!

If they were really sexist they would hire Gimelstob.
He's the king of judging WTA players by their looks.

Re: BBC coverage is SOOOO sexist!!

They're biased PERIOD. The way they hyped up Murray after he defeated Gasquet, you'd think he'd won Wimbledon. It was only Gasquet for goodness sake, sorry to his fans but what has he done... It could be because Wimbledon probably wanted one of their favourites to win instead of the Williams and Jie.

It's ALWAYS Murray, just like with Henman. Did they seriously believe that Murray would beat Federer, Safin and Nadal? Did they seriously think that Tim "Quarter final/4th round" Henman would really win? Pur-lease. I think they showed the Murray-Gasquet match more then 4 times! It was all over the news. When Murray won ONE set it was on the news yet Murray losing the MATCH is hardly shown. Murray winning was mentioned before people dying for goodness sake. It was ridiculous.

So why be surprised that they pretend that the women don't exist? At least I'm not the only one losing my sanity.

Re: BBC coverage is SOOOO sexist!!

here's the link to the BBC's complaints page. i've already used it today when they just decided to leave the Serena v Jie match, not during a change of ends but right in the middle of a game (!!!!) to go to Court one.

Re: BBC coverage is SOOOO sexist!!

just wait if it rains tomorrow and a mens semi is held over or even both, the ladies final will just become a sideshow to the rafa and roger winning in straight sets dont break a sweat matches.

I'm surprised they did'nt switch to the mens quarter final.In there defence they did show a couple of girls singles matches on freeview/interactive,can't remember them doing that as early as thursday especially as one match did not feature a british girl.

Re: BBC coverage is SOOOO sexist!!

I watched BBC too, and I didn't have impression that they were discriminating Ladies' Semifinals. I don't see anything wrong with talking to Federer, or their best tennis player, Murray, during rain breaks. Similarly, in the past I never saw anything wrong with the fact that they had been showing and talking about Tom Henman and Greg Rusedski. They are British after all.

This has nothing to do with discrimination against women: if Murray were a woman he would be shown, interviewed, and talked over as frequently, if not more so. Their sacred right. BBC is British, Wimbledon is British, and Murray is British.

Re: BBC coverage is SOOOO sexist!!

Seriously people - Get the complaints in - John Inverdale must go

I said it another thread, but BBC's Wimbledon coverage is excellent whereas their Highlights show is

They should be doing something like ES RG highlights show
