Thanks for the link, good article. Some of the comments are typical anti-Murray drivel though, but some sense on there.

Here is a link to an article on Lendl, I found if pretty interesting.  Don't know if this is the place to put this.

Just been watching the highlights on ITV Player. And I have to say, it's one of the most pathetic highlights reels I've ever seen. Typical of ITV really.

Where to start? Well, first of all it's all in stream quality footage. Not even standard definition, the standard of a stream five years ago. Where's the HD that Sky and BBC so readily provide?

Secondly, the highlights themselves. They merely showed the break/set points and a dozen errors.  They showed more errors than winners. In-fact, they only showed about five winners. I was expecting at least half of Murray's winners in the final two sets. None of them. Zilch. I don't know what they are playing at. When I watch the highlights after the match, I want the most exciting points, the drama. I don't want to see Gasquet hitting it into the net or Murray drinking from his water bottle. This is the opposite of what I expected.

Then you have the commentary. Instead of just using the real time commentary from Petchey and Courier, they decided to put one single second-rate commentator on, clearly after the match has already been played, adding to the typical ITV 'cringe factor'.

I think I'll wait for the highlights to come on youtube, in HD, with all the actual highlights, with the proper commentary, probably put together by a teenager still in school. I wonder why ITV are so inept they are incapable of doing the same.

Just after they had gone up a little in my esteem as well after appointing Courier and the pretty decent coverage of RG. Embarrassing joke of a tv station that will never be forgiven for going to adverts mid-match in the World Cup and missing one of three moments worth watching all tournament.

/rant.

Does anyone know where else I can find some highlights? Some actual highlights.

I understand completely. Last night they bloody showed 4 hours of tennis on TSN2 (replay) and I was sure they would cover Andy at least for an hour or so but they bloody showed that bloody Sharapova match for 2 and half hours. If I could I'd slap all the guys behind this decision.

Why do the people with the power come up with these decisions? What actual reason do they think people would be more interested in that pretty farcical match with barely any holds of serve over a pretty exciting, fairly dramatic encounter in the Men's? Some of the decisions really baffle me.

Here's another positive article from Paul Newman in the Indie

'a stunning display of courageous shot-making' sums it up

I couldn’t watch Andy’s match as well so I thought there would be a replay for sure since they were going to show 4 hours of replay. Imagine my surprise. I was in a killing mode. Andy’s match was a fantastic one and you don’t always get to see that, so I feel I missed much of it. Very poor choice.

Hey man, I believe you were looking for highlights.



Very short and brief clip, but the first point shown is an absolute cracker! Smile

Sorry, I never checked back this thread after my last post, so I didn’t even get to see this message. That's why I sounded so clueless in my PM to you. lol

Thanks again!

I went onto ITV Player got the whole of Andy vs Richard match, good quality. So I'm not sure where you went on the ITV Player.

Shame for Shvedova, but brilliant run all the same.

I could only find a 45 minute highlights of the entire day, which is all there was the morning after the match. It featured about 5-10 minutes of the match.
