I think you'll find bbc aren't showing until the actual finals w/e angie though perhaps they'll change their mind if Andy is in SFs.  Ubelievable really.
Glad others have also picked up on the ridiculous comment that Andy gets easy draws in GSs. It's true that they sometimes open up for him unexpectedly like this time but I don't recall them going on about the easy peasy draws smugfed usually gets - with this one the exception that proves the rule.  Hope Raonic gives him the runaround alright.

I must say I thought the BBC was showing the semi's. I was convinced I'd read that somewhere. It seems they aren't. Very strange!

The combs on Eurosport this morning were Simon Reed and Frew McMillan - enough said!!
How old are they? Sound about 101
Frew Mc is 70.  I don't know how old Simon is but he's but he's the brother of the late actor Oliver Reed who, had he not drunk himself to death, would have been 73 by now.

The BBC are pathetic.  First they said they'd show both semis on 2, then it was one of the semis on the red button - and now it's no semis! grr  What next - no finals??

I'd read too that bbc were showing SFs but it's clear they're not now as nothing in RT and checked their website.  I guess it's just possible they might clear Friday morning schedule, if Andy playing SF but I wouldn't hold your breath.  Apart from tournaments played in UK, BBC seem to have given up on tennis just when Britain has a top 3 player who has won a GS.  Makes you wonder about their sporting priorities.
Frew Mc and Simon Reed are just awful (as is Chris Bradnam (?) who joined them).  They clearly detest Andy but have to cover it up , not very well.  Constant little digs at him with their awful little chuckles like when they joked he'd only just served faster than Serena - as if the speed of the serve is the only thing that matters.  I'm sure older comms are perfectly capable of being good comms but it's time these particular comms were put out to grass.
Oh just now read your tirade against them tj - couldn't agree more.  Perhaps we should get up a petition to have them removed and replaced by comms more attuned to today's world.

Just said on Eurosport that Andy is playing Simon at 6am UK time tomorrow, so I guess one of the last matches of the day session over there.

I do not like Wilander either he is so two faced. The one thing I really dislike is the Eurosport commentary team. FM sounds ar thought he needs wound up that drawl is enough to put you to sleep the other are just as bad Simon Reed agrees with everything he says. Yes it will be nice to have Petchy and Fleming back at least they are fair. At least A Croft is a bit fairer now but I still dislike Virgina Wade such a snob.

You'd really never know that a Brit is world no.3, has won an Olympic gold medal and the first major a Brit has won for 76 years, would you, for all the support our publicly funded TV broadcaster gives him. Honestly, then they wonder why people don't get in to tennis. It helps if they can actually see it being played!

I'm about 95% sure the BBC televised Andy's SF last year, so would it be too much to expect them to do it again, if he gets there?

I was thinking the other day, I'm sure the BBC televised Andy's semi last year. I seem to remember spending the latter parts of the match channel hopping between Eurosport and the BBC, because the commercial breaks on Eurosport were annoying me so much.

It just annoys me intensely, because they don't show Andy through the year, to enable people to see improvements and so on, but then they dump a tonne of pressure on him for Queen's and Wimbledon, when they chase him around like idiots.

Andy has to fight hard for the recognition he deserves I cannot believe how some people in the tennis world treat him.

Been watching rugby and now tennis so worn out! Looking forward to seeing Andy tonight and it was good to see Rafa back,tho he's annoyed at the time penalties been stricter.Well we do get sick of the hair, nose & bottom pulls before a serve-not pretty. Imagine how Andy would be treated if he did this! I also find it odd that we don't get any detailed coverage from BBC just because they can't screen matches. it is as if he is forgotten unless he is playing in London. Hopefully we will see an extended stay for Andy at Indian Wells and a fantastic battle for supremacy at the finals whoever gets there.     w00t
