I didn't watch. What's she done?

Can't remember watching her present tennis, but for general sport Clare Balding's about the best presenter on TV for me.

McEnroe was quite amusing at the close just now. Balding doesn't seem to have any sense of humour

Just in terms of depth of knowledge and being able to cover any sport. She pissed on Gary Lineker at the Olympics, for instance.

I wonder whether it's possible to express an opinion without demonstrating or receiving aggression and anger?

Some people on here need to chill.

I just watch the tennis to be honest and have no real complaints. Didn't watch the highlights package, but I must admit I do find Claire Balding incredibly overrated.

Does that depend on which opinion you agree with then ?

> Inverdale. But I don't really care about tennis so I'll leave it there. The BBC does seem to really, really like Balding though and I'd say she is a serious contender to Matov's description of Sue Perkins as the 'Alpha Kipper Licker'.

Inverdale and Balding are sycophantic arses.

Really very poor journalists, both

Along with Jake Humphries she was the best presenter at the olympics. She gets the balance between genuine interest, knowledge and allowing the experts to speak just right.

I´m glad she has replaced Inverdale, he is terrible.

We have to watch this crap at work, but because most people in the office are a bit common (estuary English, M&S ready meals) it just makes the whole office look like god-awful social climbers.

And the clapping's so loud.

Dear oh dear. England and it's class system and prejudices. A combination of a non-self aware George Orwell and Alan Bennett all in one post..

I'm generally with you on that Chelmsfordeagle.

Clare would be the first to admit that horse racing is her strongest sport in terms of depth of knowledge. But her role at the Olympics and Wimbledon is to link items and to ask sensible/informed questions of those who are the experts, eg McEnroe.

She is hugely popular with viewers, but ofcourse no presenter is liked by everyone. And to a certain extent, the more popular someone becomes, the more criticism they then start to attract if they ever fall short of expectations.


But I do think she's taken on too many jobs in recent years. She didn't suit that Saturday quiz show that she presented, but I can understand why she was curious to try a different type of programme. Best left alone in future!
