The Rest of the World Knows Wimbledon has started - Does New Zealand

Thank goodness I have ESPN as their is know free to air Coverage of Wimbledon in NZ this year.An utter disgrace by TV1 and further Embaressing Tennis in New Zealand.Have not heard much noise from TNZ about this. I have been a little quiet lately , one pleasing aspect is that the National Junior Teams event will go ahead next year! Thanks to all that signed the petition and left comments it helped show how much this event meant to players and parents and coaches.
Ok some quick Wimbeldon notes, firstly hope Thomas Berdych does not turn up in his Birthday Suit to play as featured above.My predictions below
*Rodger Federer will not add to his Wimbledon Titles
*Andy Murray will not be regaining his title this year.
*Sharapova will not win the title .
Over night Sam Stosur went out, loved how the Aussie commentators and media talk her up ..Fails all the time. Will be more regular, stay tuned!


  1. But did you see how TNZ are trying to use a charity scheme to help support their top players - 14's boys while overseas. Check last week's Passing Shots. Not a good sign.

    Tennis in NZ is a minority sport why would TV NZ want to cover Wimbledon ? You have a CEO in Auckland who comes from a Surf Life Saving background, the Board could have at least employed someone from Lawn Bowls where balls are involved, cheers Paul from Wellington.
