    Don’t see any nonsense from her end personally, if she has anxiety and depression which isn’t helped by having cameras and mics shoved in her face after tennis matches then not doing it is the exact thing she should be doing.

    Federer has withdrawn after three matches and was never going to win the tournament anyway, while Nadal and Djokovic have breezed through their matches so far, as expected. Not much to say tbh. Tsitsipas is lucky with how the draw has turned out. Still think Rafa will win it anyway.

    Yeah I just watched it. Shame Musetti got an injury, he had a real chance of progressing. Rafa v Sinner up next, should be a belter!

    Great start for Sinner. He seems very positive and hitting very ball cleanly.
    At the moment the match reminds me of Nadal when he had those very difficult battles in the first Week Of Wimbledon over the years.

    Second set to Nadal. Sinner needs a huge performance to stay in the game in this third set. He's doing the right things, but Nadal's experience is shining through here.

    Tsitsipas running away with this first set. I know Medvedev is weak on clay but was hoping it would be a little bit closer than this. Interestingly, if Medvedev was able to make the final of this tournament and Djokovic didn't, then Medvedev would become the new world no.1.

    Medvedev with the underarm serve at match point. What was he thinking. :56:

    Tsitsipas played well, Medvedev missing break point to win the second set prevented it from being a lot closer.

    Loving Jim Courier when he said would have loved to play Borg
    And Nadal in their prime and how he would get smoked.
    Nadal as expected all but through to another Semi Final.

    What a 2nd Semi Final In The Women’s draw that was. A pure 50/50 match. Fantastic!!
    Both players can be really proud.
    Going to be a cracking Women’s Final.
