Having been at Roland Garros til yesterday - this is my first chance to moan And - honestly - I cannot believe it!!! Watching Hingis and then Clijsters thrash some complete unknowns unstead of Gastón/JCF was bad enough - but then they only showed 2 games of Gastón before switching over to Nadal/Kim! I mean - honestly - we have two former French Open Champions battling it out here - that match has GOT to be closer and more interesting than the "Boy Wonder" against lowly-ranked Kim!

Whilst in Paris I happened to be staying in the same Hotel as most of the Eurosport commentators and media people - I now wish I had taken my chance to strangle them when I had the chance.

You get Blake-Almagro on BBC? Well, I envy you. Hopefully scoobsuk is recording it. I want that match if Blake manages to win it.

It is indeed a disgrace, everyone has over reacted about the hingis comeback on the wta side, people are still wetting theirselves over it. WTA Is a supporting act and always will be, so why the hell is a match two former rg champions not being shown (and hingis is shown against a no hoper). Pathetic!

Slightly off topic....but love the flag ...do you realise the issues that have been highlighted in today's media over flying our English flag....more pathetic than the Hingis issue....

Yes - I saw them and agree. In fact think I may follow Joe's example and get myself an Englisg flag instead of a Brit one too!!

Yes, I heard this a few weeks ago. Apparently it was illegal to put up an england flag! It had to be the gbr flag. Some guy got arrested for it, because its apparently offensive to non english people living in the country

Whats the latest on it then?

Well - in England it is not really considered acceptable to display our national flag in the same way as it is in many other countries, for fear of upsetting the "politically correct" brigade. Sadly the flag of St. George (English flag) has been adopted by the BNP (British National Party) which is a Fascist organisation, and is somewhat associated with racism/Fascism. Therefore, many people who are wanting to display the flag for the World Cup (lorry drivers/taxi drivers etc) are being banned from doing so for fear of losing their jobs, and there is now a campaign to "reclaim" our flag for ordinary people to show their allegiance instead of the bad side of things. Hope that helped

LMAO! Thats why Thanks rosie

The thing is, a GBR flag is totally useless. Because its not GBR playing in the world cup, its ENGLAND. Thats pathetic news.

Of course! Especially if they dare to beat our team in the quarter final of the WC.
