Wimbledon 2011: Unhappy with the standard of commentary, 20 June 2011 to 2 July 2011


We have received complaints from viewers who were unhappy with the standard of commentary during Wimbledon 2011.

The BBC's response

The aim of our commentary team was to inform our audience and give context to the matches we showed.

This year, our line-up included ex-players such as Tim Henman, John McEnroe, Pat Cash, Boris Becker, Lindsay Davenport, Tracey Austin, Virginia Wade and Greg Rusedski. We felt that the diversity of the team itself added balance and insight where necessary.

Views on our commentary are of course subjective and we do appreciate that over-talking can irritate our audience. We hope that across our coverage we have achieved the right balance and have accurately reflected the event, but we are of course sorry if on occasion you have not been satisfied.
