Byline: Steve Palme



BBC1 & BBC2, from 12noon

IT'S Ladies' Day at the All England Club and the BBC commentary box will be bulging with the usual female observers, writes Steve Palmer.

There's Virginia Wade, who will be cosying up to the microphone with Pam Shriver to get all worked up over the first round action.

"That's just a gorgeous backhand from Jennifer, isn't it Virginia?"

"Yes Pam, you can see Lindsay is at full stretch there, but, oh, what a beautiful stroke by Jenny - breathtaking."

Emotional Czech miss Jana Novotna will be on hand to describe the scent of Princess Anne's shoulder, while Sue Barker, who can at times resemble a laughing hyena on Prozac, leads the team.

Today's coverage lasts eight and a half hours. Yes, that's almost nine hours of live sport on the BBC. Blimey, I nearly choked on my strawberries then.
