Good.

Clare Balding is a good presenter on majority of sports too.

I expect she'll be a decent presenter for Tennis, she was good on the Five Live coverage.

Honestly Castle should have been first, the guy is an epic turd. Glad Inverdale is gone though - the BBC didn't do enough after what he said about Bartoli.

What a shame we won't have any other snide commentary for the billionth time about women 'screeching' on court. He's never said anything insightful about tennis in his life, so I think we'll get by.

Good for the game, Castle and Lloyd next please.
John Lloyd is capable of insight and interesting commentary. What's annoying about him is the sound of his voice.

Thank god. I can actually watch Wimbledon without ranting once every half an hour about Inverdale. Next step sack Castle. Claire Blading necessarily isn't the best presenter herself consistently spewing about Women's empowerment which is alright itself but gets to the point where it's boring. At least it's something else to rant about. They should just get someone with a tennis background.

It will be good to have a presenter who knows the difference between a game and a match.

Roddick joining the commentary team too. Should be good value.

The right decision. He was beyond horrible in the French Open coverage. Castle deservedly gets stick but I honestly think Inverdale was worse. Plus, I'd miss Castle and his umbrella analysis, his fawning over Grigor, etc. John Lloyd can fuck off, he talks his share of bollocks himself. Another one who's completely out of touch.

With Balding, it's as if someone up there is happy to keep doing her favours. The Clare Balding Show bombs on BT Sport, so the BBC decide to take it on themselves? She'll do a better, more professional job than Inverdale though.

You'd imagine 'former AO semi-finalist' would be considered a more notable achievement.

Explain?

And also to the person saying Balding will do a more professional job - I haven't seen many things more unprofessional than the time she embarrassed a jockey in his proudest moment on live television regarding the condition of his teeth.

She is vile in every way.

The BBC Wimbledon team is about as intelligent as a dead racoon. From the presenters to the pundits, from the special guests to the established ex pros of the sport, they have dug out some of the most useless people to broadcast the single biggest event in the tennis calendar. If you were to used a permanent marker and write the word tennis across their forehands they'd still find a way to discuss other sports more.

1. Andrew Castle (reached R3 in queens once). BBC's so called "expert" on the sport thinks that Dimitrov moves better on grass than anyone else ever has. Someone should smack him with Tim Henman's racquet for the stupidity he displays.

2. John Lloyd. John Lloyd is BBC's answer to Mats Wilander, more ooh and ahhs than in a pornographic movie. Some of the gems he's come up with including confusing Dolgopolov with Gulbis. The BBC must truly be scraping the bottom of the barrel.

Honestly I don't even know where to stop, there is so much wrong with the BBC's coverage that you're better off listening to it in Chinese, even if you can't speak a word of it. At least the Chinese will keep the sounds to a kind that curious children won't ask about.

The worst thing is that Castle and Lloyd are the bbc's A-Team who do all the big matches.

Shame they couldn't get Courier, he is good at the French even if he is a massive fakertard.
