Anyone ever seen it? Its a terrible programme. They show 10 second highlights of every match, they tell you the result and show the press conference BEFORE the highlights of the match, the narrater is constantley getting his lines wrong and late, they have this segment called 'babs undercover' where this strange woman tries to do tasks like getting into the player's lounge in the most embrassing and cringeworthy ways. Wilander is usually good in it but the show is a complete joke.

The only good thing about the show is where the player's give the car interview with a VERY attractive female driver.

I agree but the cab driving item thing isn't so bad, given who's behind the wheel. Just wish something really suprising would happen..

Agree with all said but I still find it interesting to hear some opinions and interviews.
Mats is a terrible predictor, for example, he said Taylor's game will probably trouble Sod today...maan... - .-

I saw her, very nice indeed. Btw and off topic, but have you seen the 14 year old photos of french first lady, carla bruni in the press today?

Watched it during last year's FO on EuroSport. Found it pretty interesting and a breath of fresh air compared to the usual Gilbert, McEnroe and Carillo trio.

You do know that the "strange woman" is the former world number 7 tennis player, right?

Anyway I actually love game set and mats though I recognise it may be ... erm ..... Niche

I don't think it's that bad tbh. Enjoyed it a lot last year (I enjoyed everything except the nerves last year), but of course if you want to see proper highlights it's not your show. A bit of talk about the matches, a little preview of tomorrow and some 'entertaining' segments is enough for me.

The guy who came up with the name of the programme just worries me though.

Why do you speak English as if you knew the language when you obviously don't?

Wilander is good, the programme is bad.

the programme is a joke, completely pointless. And babs undercover is stupid and crap. Why not just show highlights of the days matches and get wilander to do a short summary on each of the matches played and cut out the other pointless sh*t.

I actually like it, Mats is a great analyst in my opinion.

BBC coverage at Wimbledon is the best though, Sue Barker is awesome! :)

Then it might be a good idea if they spent some time analyzing matches, instead of filling the time with fluff.

I like it, it's nice to hear an expert opnion. True, Mats has been wrong badly before, like when he called Federer his favorite to win the RG 08 final (epic fail), but usually he's a good analyst and interesting. Plus, he's a ******* ;-)

It was really baffling how so many "experts" backed Federer to beat Nadal in the 2008 French Open final considering the way Nadal was playing during that tournament. It was clear that Nadal was better than 2007 while Federer was a bit worse.

Babs undercover was cringeworthy tonight, a total embarassment.

Compare it to the highlight show BBC do at night for Wimbledon, it doesn't compare. Eurosport is awful, I usually watch the matches on BBC interactive. How about you?

Don't know what you're on, he loves Nadal far more.

Wilander a *******? He's the Anti-Federer if anything.
