You know it's (technically) summer when you can hear your telly shouting for "NEW BALLS!" John Inverdale presents highlights from the opening day's play at the All England Club, as Rafael Nadal, injury permitting, got the defence of his singles title under way on Centre Court. Nadal and Switzerland's Roger Federer contested the longest final in Wimbledon history at last year's championships, falling just 12 minutes short of the five-hour mark. Despite letting a two-set lead slip, the match finally swung the way of the Spaniard as he claimed his maiden Wimbledon title by winning 9-7 in the deciding set. Following at 11.50pm is the new (to BBC2) series of The Wire. The Barksdale crew is forced to relocate as a programme of urban renewal sees Franklin Terrace razed. Burrell comes under pressure from the mayor to reduce Baltimore's ever-increasing crime statistics, while Daniels' promotion to major is put in doubt. Continues tomorrow.
