My favourite thing about Kyrgios is that he's super petulant but also not very good which makes him look a complete bellend. At least McEnroe had talent to compensate for being a twat.

This fight back by Gauff in the second set to stay in the match is my highlight of the tournament so far.

There seems to have been a lot of big prime time matches this year for some reason, despite there being no rain. It's been great though, obviously. Much prefer it in the evening, both when watching at home and there in person.

That was utterly incredible. I lived and breathed every point of that from the start of the second set. Amazing.

Murray and Williams has been delayed until TBD. Bit of a bait and switch for those who have been watching BBC2 tonight expecting that match.

Very OK with Dan Evans getting knocked out here.

Really enjoy the way Evans plays, it's a beautiful style. Shame about his personality.

Konta choked again. Just like in the French open. Losing poorly to an unfancied opponent.
Not good enough.

Get the kite, Beavis.

What a plucky little muffin, any chance this QF will be more interesting than expected?

A fifth set would have been nice here. Ah well.

Serena seems to have almost developed a mental block in major finals.
