Novak Djokovic's victory over Rafael Nadal was seen by 5.49m (45.3%) on BBC One between 1pm and 5.30pm. However, the BBC's much publicised 3D coverage of the final appealed to just 140k (0.1%) on the BBC HD channel, suggesting a still relatively limited appetite for sport in 3D.
Further Wimbledon 2011 action pulled in 820k (5.1%) on BBC Two between 5.30pm and 8pm, before series 17 of Top Gear tumbled to 3.88m (16.7%), down 440k week-on-week. A further 709k (3.1%) watched the motoring show on BBC HD.
Stolen, starring Damian Lewis, averaged 3.44m (14.9%) for BBC One between 9pm and 10.30pm, but the drama was outperformed by Scott & Bailey's 5.77m (23.8%) on ITV1 in the 9pm hour and 183k (1%) on +1.
Earlier, Fake Or Fortune? continued with 4.02m (21.6%) on BBC One in the 7pm hour, but the factual entertainment show lost out to The Royal's 4.13m (22.4%) on ITV1 and 140k (0.6%) on +1.
In the 8pm hour, Countryfile's 5.43m (23.4%) on BBC One proved too strong for Popstar to Operastar, which entertained 3.02m (13%) on ITV1. The programme's results show, featuring Joe McElderry and Cheryl Baker making it to next weekend's live final, had 3.48m (16.8%) from 10pm and 132k (1.2%) on +1.
BBC Two's Coast fetched 2.86m (11.9%) from 9pm and 210k (0.9%) on BBC HD, before Mock The Week amused 1.77m (8.8%) from 10pm.

Overall, BBC One narrowly won primetime with 19.1% against ITV1's 18.2% (+1: 0.6%). BBC Two scooped third with 10.7%, followed by Channel 4 with 7.8% (+1: 1.7%) and Channel 5 with 3.3%.
