The way it should be done
on 22 November 2010
4 hours 17 minutes of wonderful tennis from the BBC, as Roger Federer goes for his 6th Wimbledon and (record-breaking) 15th Slam title.
In front of former champions Laver, Santana, Borg and Sampras (plus McEnroe commentating for NBC and Becker for the Beeb), Federer and Andy Roddick put on both the closest final and one of the finest that I can remember. As the Beeb's Sue Barker said afterwards, it's sad that someone had to lose.
One fascinating segment during a change-over shows two of Roger's serves superimposed: the service motion and the point of contact with the ball are identical in both cases, but the ball goes to opposite sides of the service box!
The two discs include the warm-up, the entire match, the award ceremony, interviews with both contestants, and footage of Laver, Borg and Sampras congratulating Roger afterwards.
Boris's fellow-commentators are Andrew Castle and Tim Henman. The picture and sound are both crystal clear.
