Wimbledon, London

Money not the seesnce of 'paupers' challenge

GOOD old Wimbledon.

After losing their first three matches of the season, they have bounced back with four successive victories to move into sixth place (that's right, sixth) in the Premiership.

Football driven into the Net

Last month I drifted off and got stuck in some pretty strange sites so this time I'm keeping things very down-to-earth.

The beauty of the Internet is that when something of interest happens in the real world, you can be pretty sure you will learn all about it with the click of a mouse.

Shoddy coverage of tennis

THE Wimbledon telecast by ATV World has been shoddy and perfunctory.

During the women's quarter-final match between Steffi Graf and Mary Joe Fernandez, there was a 15-minute break for the news coverage.

The news comes many times a day and every day, however, Wimbledon is shown only once a year. The news could have been shown after the match.

Malice in suburbia

The Wimbledon Poisoner by Nigel Williams, Faber, $102 THAT bastion of British bourgeois dullness, the leafy London suburb of Wimbledon, has already been the setting for two of Nigel Williams' other novels: one written at the expense of Islamic fundamentalists and the other sending up a bogus sect of pseudo-spiritualists.

Wimbledon the last straw

IT amazes me how an allegedly hi-tech operator such as STAR TV can continue to provide poor sports coverage in both a commercial and technical sense.

Is everyone game for so much tennis?

WIMBLEDON again dominates the evening on two channels, and those with an aversion to tennis, can only console themselves with the second part of Intruders, the mini-series about alien visitations. Looks like the video stores will be doing roaring trade.

UK soccer club Wimbledon

WIMBLEDON'S proposed visit to the territory on May 15 will cost organisers between $700,000 and $800,000 - more than twice the original budget.
