Wimbledon - Classic Matches - Murray Vs Gasquet [2&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Wimbledon Classic Matches
5.0 out of 5 stars Wimbledon at its best, 19 Dec 2012
I can't add much to previous reviewers except to say, having received this (promptly) in the middle of winter watching this match being played on a midsummer evening was a real mood-lifter. Quality of the picture is excellent.

Also amazing to see the Centre Court roof half-finished!
The US Open 2012--Men's Singles Final [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Andy Murray

First off, this DVD has everything, from the moment these two great players come to court to the post-match trophy presentation. If like me you had relied on your Sky+ to record the match only to have the final moments snatched away by a channel change then this DVD fits the bill.

Takes a while to get used to the American commentators but they are actually so much more measured and less hysterical than the UK ones so that's actually a bonus. The sound from courtside is much clearer so you can hear all of Andy's mutterings... :-)

A bonus is the full post-match press conferences for both players.

And of course it was a brilliant match!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, 24 Nov 2006
In 1985 I was a second year student at the University of Glasgow and was thrilled to attend every one of Sagan's lectures. It was a privilege to hear this man talk.

This book is beautifully presented and presents the substance of the lectures just as Sagan was speaking to you directly. It's also illustrated with many colour prints. Fantastic!
