BBC broadcaster interrupts Wimbledon match
This is why golf and tennis announcers use their quiet voices during play.
A broadcaster doing a Wimbledon segment on the BBC World News interrupted a fourth-round match on Monday and was told to quiet down so the match could resume.
The Associated Press reports Belgium’s Kirsten Flipkens stopped play and complained to the umpire that a journalist standing on the roof overlooking the court was too loud. After Flipkens motioned angrily toward broadcaster John Watson, umpire Fergus Murphy asked “the gentleman who’s broadcasting in the brown suit” to be quiet, according to the AP.
Embarrassed, Watson told viewers “this is a very surreal moment" and "I don't think I've ever been told to be quiet by the fellow players." Watson apologized to Flipkens after the match.
The 20th-seeded Flipkens overcame the distraction to beat italy's Flavia Pennetta 7-6, 6-4 and reach her first Grand Slam quarterfinal, where she’ll face Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic.
