    Andrew Castle —- I do NOT remember this guy as a tennis player at all . BBC he is NOT a very good Tennis presenter — in my opnion . He does NOT know when to keep is mouth shut — And let people watching tennis & enjoy the shots. I may NOT be a professional but I no enough about tennis — that I do Not need Castle to tell me how to enjoy the shots. . You can keep employing him — but tell him to keep his mouth shut when good shots are being played — so we can enjoy tennis on BBC.
