Others felt Castle was being biased towards Djokovic with the general consensus that he talks too much.

That led some to question why the BBC still employs Castle as a commentator, with one fan suggesting the BBC would be better off getting Boris Becker to tune in from jail.

He wrote: “Pretty sure they could have binned Andrew Castle and put a phone in Boris Becker’s prison cell and let him commentate instead.”

Another added: “I didn’t know who I was going to dislike most in this #Wimbledon final between Djokovic and Kyrgios but I now know the answer is Andrew Castle.”

A third said: “Andrew Castle giving the most shameful commentary on the men’s final. His bias towards Djokovic is there for all to hear. Disgraceful.”

Other viewers were a bit more serious with their comments, even accusing Castle of ruining the BBC’s coverage of the final.

One fan tweeted: “Well that’s my BBC Wimbledon final coverage ruined (again) – why do you always insist on inflicting Andrew Castle on us?! 😩 Can’t he retire instead of Sue Barker?”

Another wrote: “I can’t handle Andrew Castle’s commentary. It’s beyond awful.


“We all know British tennis is an old boy’s club, but come on you’re just torturing innocent people by having this old boy on comms.”

Djokovic went on to win a seventh Wimbledon final and a fourth title in a row, beating bad boy Kyrgios inside four sets.

The Serb celebrated by eating a few blades of grass.

Meanwhile, Kyrgios broke Wimbledon’s all-white dress code by wearing a red cap during the trophy presentation.

When quizzed previously about his decision to break Wimbledon protocol, Kyrgios said “I do what I want,” before adding “No. I’m not above the rules” and “I just like wearing my Jordans.”
