Wimbledon

BBC1, BBC2 from 12.00pm

THIS year's coverage of The Championships, we are told by a boastful BBC, will be the most extensive ever with digital viewers able to enjoy a wealth of extra features, writes Ed Hawkins.

But nothing else has changed. The men's singles is likely to be an event when over 120 blokes run round on grass for a few days and then Pete Sampras wins. The women's tournament increases tabloid newspaper sales when they run snaps of the few attractive players in short skirts (sorry lads, Kournikova's missing through injury).

Then there will be the British failings and this is when you can use all that new technology. Reach for the mute button when the pathetic cries of 'Come on, Tim!' from Union Flag clad teenage girls are driving you round the bend.
