Konta. :o

Very strong chance for her to make the final now considering the two left on her side of the draw.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I was able to watch the game on a screen at work - she played terrifyingly well.

Surprisingly it's the first time Djoko, Nadal and Feds have all been in the semis since 2012.

Get the kite, Beavis.

Big choke from konta there. Doubt she'll get closer than that.

Imagine being 15 and playing one of your idols in a Grand Slam. Better yet, beating them.

Just the kind of match this year's tournament needed.

Apparently she'd won four before Gouff was born (if I remember the BBC graphic correctly). Brilliant performance from Gouff. Was quite surprised to see Osaka go out as well.

If anyone wants to catch a Kyrgios car-crash, tune in now :lol: - he's 2 sets to 1 up but is proceeding to throw the fourth set.

Edit: That set took 18 minutes :lol: - Will he turn up for the fifth? I'd imagine so.

He's such a collosal twat, I don't find him funny at all. His antics reek of juvenile insecurity.

Serena Williams is playing mixed doubles at Wimbledon for the first in over twenty years to partner up with Murray. :o

Kyrgios sure is ranting and raving like a madman against Nadal at the moment.

This is available in 4K on iPlayer BTW, and HDR as well on compatible TVs.

What is it about modern Australia culture that has created two complete dickhead professional tennis players? Kyrgios's point here isn't completely wrong about his serve routine being interrupted, but goading the umpire with "you love all that power huh? feels great to be sat up there huh?" Such a monumental dickhead.

Edit: Here's what Tomic had his entire match fee taken for:



The guy either has some serious underlying mental health problems or is just a total prick. Probably the former...

What's with all the spitting everywhere as well.

He seems incapable of sitting down and not immediately arguing with the referee.

What an absolute banana split.

Do you often contemplate the complexity of life?
