    Why oh why do we have to hear the BBC commentators talk about weapons and wing span. It is a tennis match, you talk about their talent and their arm length. Please stop!

    What a JOKE!

    I’m not the biggest tennis fan in the world, all I want to do is catch up with what has been happening today at Wimbledon. So why when you schedule the highlights, do you year after year decide not to show it.

    I couldn’t watch Laura Robson today, but never mind I’ll see the highlights later! No I won’t, because they are showing Serena Williams annihilate some poor Japanese woman. As for Laura, who cares what she did today! certainly not the BBC.

    Here’s an Idea, why don’t you schedule the highlights for 9pm like they used to be, at least then you’ll find it more difficult to over run your live coverage.

    I thought this year it was going to be different. Wrong again!

    Rant over, I don’t suppose it will make a blind bit of difference, as every year you get people complaining about this very subject and every year nothing changes.
