Yeah bu the BBC has to give even coverage to different sports and so they can't afford to show a whole fortnight of tennis. D they not do highlights of the earlier rounds?

Woohoo, can't wait for RG to start! It's about the only thing I watch those two weeks on tv, as I can watch coverage on Belgian Flemish tv, Belgian French tv, French tv, Dutch tv, German tv and the bbc!!  yahooo So there's always a match, match repeat or highlights on one of these channels, any time of day!

Yeah they show highlights, if you can be bothered to stay up till about 11-2 is when its usually on, and only if theres a brit involvement in the day which is a bit sad,
 ranting
 this is what bothers me, The BBC what a joke, they like to rip on the talent of our cricket and tennis, when they put no money into the sports what so ever, Lets face it the only reason they show wimbledon is coz they get it free coz its one of the crown jewels,
 ranting
I'l have to listen to Sue Barker saying'why haven't we got any more tennis players coming through'
coz theres no attention being paid to tennis from the media apatrt from when wimbledon is on
Anyway.......... Whistle

Just bbc 1 and 2, so I suppose I won't see a lot of the French Open on that, but that doesn't matter, I'm sure I'll be able to see plenty of tennis on tv!

The BBC don't get Wimbledon free, yes it has to be shown on terrestrial TV but ITV, Channel 4 or five could bid for it as well. Besides when they already show pretty much all of Queens and Wimbledon, that gives three weeks of pretty much constant tennis and so you can't really expect them to put any more on as then tennis would be getting way more live coverage than any sport. In fact atm they prob have more tennis coverage than football coverage in non-WC or EC years.
