Wimbledon Player Asks BBC Broadcaster To Be Quiet During Match

BBC broadcaster John Watson yesterday "was told to quiet down" by a player "when his on-air segment interrupted her fourth-round match." Kirsten Flipkens "stopped play to complain to the umpire during the second set of her win over Flavia Pennetta that a journalist standing on a roof overlooking Court 18 was speaking too loudly." Chair umpire Fergus Murphy then asked "the gentleman who's broadcasting in the brown suit" to be quiet (AP, 7/1).
