Babbler loses it for split second; tvwatch.

HAVING gorged on a feast of an opening day, the shenanigans at SW19 yesterday made rather mundane TV.

But Andrew Castle managed to spice it up a little during the Novak Djokovic v Florian Mayer match.

The BBC babbler said to John McEnroe: "Djokovic can do the splits standing up."

There was a pregnant pause before Mac asked: "What other way can you do the splits?" Castle mumbled an explanation but Stanley Unwin - the guru of gobbledegook - would have made more sense.

GOSSIPED I can only assume Castle meant Djokovic can do the splits while holding on to a tree, or maybe a lamppost, and spreading his legs.

I saw a drunk man do that in Partick one night - and the polis took him away.

Before Serena Williams swept Mandy Minella off Centre Court, Mary Goodnight - aka Sue Barker - and Lindsay Davenport gossiped about the champion's spat with Maria Sharapova.

Mary purred: "It is a good story and I think it will rumble on."

Hopefully it does and the duo take their cat fight into the final.

I can see it now, rackets being hurled, punches thrown and it might all be settled on a jaw break.

Deep joy, as Stanley Unwin liked to say, and if that happens I'll take myself off to the pub for a bit of tilty elbow!
