Went to Wimbledon yesterday.

Watched Shara v Lisicki match on Ct 1, 1st set of Murray match on Ct 1, then 2nd set of Ana v Vika on Centre and all of Djok match on Centre.  Good day, good atmosphere and Djok was a different class to anything else - absolutely outstanding.

However, came away with the conclusion that tennis without commentary is slightly boring and therefore more interesting to watch on TV.  The reason is the amount of downtime between points - if you take away replays and commentary, the downtime really is quite painful.

Anyone agree or am I missing something?
Pause Switch to Standard View Tennis better on TV?

When I went and saw the top guys play live, their abilties seemed more magical than on tv, especially Nadal(was clay tourny). But other than that, certainly watching at home is more fun, with replays and not worrying about getting to places and waits and annoying people next to you etc.

100x better watching live. Especially at Wimbledon. It's like disneyland for adults.

surely it's the same watching any sport if you feel like that?

Far better live, even if sitting side on.  You get a far better feel the the speed and power of the players, even found myself appreciating some WTA yesterday especially Azarenka's brutal returning.  Commentators a generally annoying
