Extremely poor decision. Right as Jack Draper was about to get his trophy presented as well
Ouch. Barry Davies faded out mid-sentence at the end of his last commentary in order to fit in a Get Inspired promo before an interview with Novak Djokovic in a programme which has another one hour to spare. Not great.
What a disgraceful decision that was. A Brit worth keeping an eye on for the future, who made a Boys Final at Wimbledon and took it to 3 sets against the top ranked player. At the exact moment of the live presentation in the Royal Box they choose to go away merely because Djokovic happened to be sitting in the studio waiting for a chat with Sue Barker after his own win. There were no time constraints whatsoever and it would have taken nothing more than maybe another 2 minutes to do the decent thing and see Jack Draper get his runners up trophy. I'm sure Djokovic isn't such a diva that he couldn't have waited those extra moments....after all, we had to keep waiting nearly a couple of minutes
(okay 33 seconds)
between his points during the final when he was bouncing his ball 16 or 17 times per point at times before finally serving.
As has also been mentioned, the BBC seems obsessed with their own self promoting trailers at any opportunity, most of which have no real worth and seem designed just to fill a gap for the sheer sake of it. Today was another good case in point of this insidious trend. It needs curbing.
