Whatever it might be that's illegal about showing Wimbledon footage, it's not the URL that's illegal. The url is just a string of characters. If they want something done, they should deal with YouTube and have them remove it. There is nothing illegal about posting urls, for Christ's sake!
Just use YouTube; cannot expect TW to risk infringement action. Also tons of highlights etc. on Stage6 . . . .
