Andy Murray Was There To See Pippa Middleton Watch Wimbledon: Photos

by | 1st, July 2011

ANDY Murray was their to see Pippa Middleton watch the semi-finals of the 2011 Wimbledon Championships at The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. The BBC’s man in the booth, Andrew Castle, produced the perfect words to caption one lingering shot of Pippa that lasted longer than some of the lupine Scot’s service games:

There’s Pippa.”

Anorak calls on the BBC to bring Hawk-Eye adjudication to Pippa’s chair. When she rises or shifts her buttocks, the director and cameraman are paged, Pipped, as it will be known. It might be the only way of ensuring that we never miss any of the action. For instance, between the first and second points in the third game of the second set, the BBC missed Pippa being handed a Nuttall’s Minto. After the sixth game of the second set, the BBC featured slow-mo high-res footage of Murray in profile looking at something. It was most likely Pippa.

With Murray out, the big question for the BBC is this: Can Pippa make it all the way to the final?
