    The Wimbledon highlights show has been getting loads of stick. Quite funny really.

    Sledger betraying a daughter of Kingsclere here, really not on.

    Have not seen the new Wimbledon show, is it as dire at it sounds?

    Part of me feels bad for this betrayal, but at the end of the day, I really feel that my stance is the lesser of two evils.

    The show is appalling. They have a chat segment in a little garden, and today's highlight was a video of Andy Murray having his face licked by a dog. I'm not even kidding.

    I don't get Clare Balding. I haven't seen the show in question, but generally she's just not very good and is not even attractive. In fact the only thing in her favour is not being Mark Petchey.

    Haven't seen whatever this is. Balding is a very good horse racing presenter - really knowledgeable and insightful. But I could see that she might not be as good in other areas where she may not have that expertise.

    Tennis coverage is just ****ing shocking. It's like what cricket coverage would be if everyone was Mark Nicholas.

    It's probably worse than that tbh.

    This is so true. There are many reasons why I hardly ever watch Tennis anymore, but every match, and every shot in the match being the MOST AMAZING thing ever is certainly one of them.

    Imagine if the depressing sight of Ali's late-career losses to mediocre fighters was spun by the entire boxing fraternity as him just happening to come up against an "inspired" Trevor Berbick. Exactly that is happening right now with Nadal at Wimbledon and it's just a given. It doesn't even register. Says it all about the state of tennis coverage.
