MURRAY MANIA: In London, John Plunkett reported "a peak audience of nearly 6 million viewers watched Andy Murray's straight sets win over Mikhail Youzhny" to reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals. Except watching it was not "quite as straightforward as Murray's win." After a five-minute peak of 5.7 million viewers on BBC1 Monday afternoon, tennis fans "had to switch to BBC2 to make way for the news at 6pm." BBC2 "benefitted to the tune of a 4.7 million peak." Overall, BBC1's afternoon coverage from Wimbledon "averaged 3.5 million viewers, a 35.3% share," between 1:45pm and 6pm. BBC2's early evening tennis coverage "had 2.4 million viewers, a 13.1% share," between 5:50pm and 8pm (GUARDIAN, 7/2).
