The magic ingredients which will lead to Andy winning RG are in Paris. His dogs near the Eiffel Tower, which they are not impressed with, prefer the French Pigeons. Having his beloved dogs and Kim with him will help him to relax and bring a bit normality to his day.

Castle's an utter creep of a human being but OK as a commentator. The way he delivers his lines as if he's talking to utter-novice tennis viewers used to annoy me, but I can see it has its place.

"And in his left hand, you can see Nadal's racket. That's the device that these incredibly gifted players use for propelling the ball over the net."

lmao

'New balls!'

Was getting ready for Rafa and Nole and Sharapova goes from a 4-2 lead to 4-4 Rolling Eyes Hope they finish soon or I won't see the whole match before I head to church.

What a time for it to rain! 6-6 3rd set, about to start tie break and the rain comes down on Li and Sharapova. Definitely not going to see the mens final now.

Sharapova's just won the TB and it's dry so I imagine the men will be on as quick as they can manage.

I do hope when I eventually get to watch it that Andrew Castle has the day off. The information is too much, the other comm has difficulty getting a word in edgeways, even Barry Cowan. Love Peter F and Mark Petchey, Barry too is OK but Castle should go back to the Beeb.

That's true.  But thank goodness that means no more hunting around for BBC's elusive red button.

Anyway I see coverage is being divided between ITV4 (mainly) and ITV1, but no live-streaming, so a month's sub for Eurosport Player (now £4.99) will be required for those who want that.

Try this website:

It's pretty good for all Freeview and free to sign up. Their app works very nicely on my iPad as well.

Thanks Joe. Smile   Incidentally, having had another look, it's only the men's and women's finals that are being shown on ITV1.  The rest of the tournament will be on ITV4, so no channel-hopping to worry about for those who want to record matches.

The BBC will be televising Queens as usual, and also it'll be on Eurosport.
