Has BBC Radio forgotten
British Wimbledon 2012 finals Champion JONATHAN MARRAY?
On BBC Radio 4 this morning I heard no mention of British men's doubles champion Marray. The BBC Sport flagship Radio 5 interviewer was shamed into silence when a US tennis pundit had to explain to her that a British tennis champion had won a great Wimbledon victory less than 24 hours earlier.
Marray became the first Brit for 76 years to win the Wimbledon men’s doubles title. The Yorkshireman and Danish partner Freddie ielsen beat Swede Robert Lindstedt and Romanian Horia Tecau in four sets to complete a fairytale story. The pair had only played three events together – they were Wild Card qualifiers who made a last minute decision to enter the All England tournament.
Britain last had a men’s doubles winner in 1936 when Pat Hughes and Raymond Tuckey won.
