    Navratilova is going to make a lot of people unhappy with her commentary, she isn't the best.

    10 streams is good. I take the fortnight off work and hate missing players I like in early rounds, because they're on outer courts.

    I'm sure the coverage will be as dire as ever if they've got Inverdale fronting the likes of Castle, Lloyd and Rusedski.

    At least they are not as unknowledgable or hyperbolic as some of there American alternatives.

    Relax folks, ...
    I expect nothing less for the best tennis event in the world, The Championships, the big one, Wimbledon.

    It's incredible just how special and prestigious this tournament is. Who will win the heavyweight championships of the world this year? Will Roger Federer defend his title? Will Rafael Nadal destroy all-comers? Will Novak Djokovic shock the world by winning a second Wimbledon title, will Andy Murray make Wales proud, or will an outsider claim the most important tennis tournament for the first time since maybe 2001.


    Ladies and Gentlemen; Wimbledon, the most important sporting event in the world. Game on mother lovers.​

    This is very true. Small blessings. Davenport is one of the few I can stand.

    TOTALLY agree. Besides, her constant stupid disrespectful speech towards Fed is more than obvious and this will get the fans of the people's champion mad at her, consequently at BBC :)

    Are you freaking kidding me ? She praises Federer as much as every other commentator does. Just because she does not think of him as god, just like you do.............Geeeez, saying what Fed did wrong on a particular shot does not make it disrespectful, fyi....................:???:

    It's a shame they don't stream it in HD though, like they did on one court of few years ago. Should've been the standard now.

    Back on 2011, she said that Federer was on the other side of the float and he might not win any other slam, and he won't ever reclaim the 1st seed ever again besides of course making all the success in the world Nadal's and Novak's .

    The good thing though is that Federer replied properly to her: "Maybe she missed the London World Tour Finals," he said. "Maybe she was somewhere else climbing Kilimanjaro." :D
