4.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully produced as always but the emphasis on Murray is excessive, 8 Sept. 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wimbledon 2012 (Official Wimbledon Annual) (Hardcover)
My immediate impression as I looked through was as always first the excellent look of the book. But closer inspection shows that there appear to be far too many pictures of the Scot Andy Murray compared with other players and an awful lot of text about Murray.

It's my understanding that this annual is intended for purchase all over the world. It is not confined to a narrow British audience that might want all the emphasis on a British player. Wimbledon is not a "nationalistic" tournament. The players are individuals, not playing for their country. Murray has fans overseas. Federer, Ferrer, Nadal, Djokovic and all the others have many fans in the UK.

For example, the splendid and popular Spaniard David Ferrer, a great favourite of mine, why does he get virtually no attention? Did you notice any of his matches, Mr Harman, except the one you feature (with a scrap of text and a small photo) which he lost? A few of the pictures and the interminable amount of text devoted to the Scot Murray would have been better devoted to some other players and in particular the likes of Ferrer. What of his earlier matches for example?

Mr Harman, it is not acceptable to put too much emphasis on just one player no matter if he's a Brit. And it totally disrespects Murray to overdo the emphasis on him to the detriment of other players.

Docking one star because of the unbalanced photos and text. Otherwise, very good as always.
Let's see the balance redressed next year.
