His wedding ring has been stolen. He had his trainers out on his balcony to air and they’ve been nicked. He always ties his wedding ring to his laces when he’s training and playing.

Back to earth with a thud for Raducanu then.

Maybe a reality check for the media who seemed to think she was some invincible robot and not an 18 y/o kid who hasn’t even had a full year on tour yet. No doubt everything fell her way at the US Open but she's still got plenty to learn going forward.

However Andy had comfortable win so he’s not ready for this topic to be renamed anytime soon.

Women’s tennis is incredibly different to men’s in that there is a lot more variety in the types of playing styles.  So absolutely agree with you there.  Until you encounter these players you don’t know how to counter them.  Five weeks ago it would have been a loss you would have expected.  But one dream run later and there is a certain burden of expectation when she plays.

Murray should be playing Alcaraz tonight about 8.30pm.  Alcaraz is the favourite but quite fancy Murray to get it done and move into the Third Round.  The winner will play the winner of Brooksby Zverev.

Comes through in the end 6-2.  Really superb result for him, best result since beating  Zverev last year. 
 

Some really good variety from Murray, with an underarm serve, serve and volley on match point.  Alcaraz had some lovely shots and can hit a drop shot sublimely.   His power from a short swing is impressive. 
 

Brooksby and Zverev are going to a final set, and Murray will have chances against both.

Zverev gets through.

Another good tournament from Murray, but he was never getting past Zverev.
Even better tournament from Cam Norrie who’s in the semi final after beating Schwartzman in the quarters. He will play Dimitrov or Hurkacz.

He’s drawn to play Frances Tiafoe in the First Round, and then second seed Diego Schwarzman if he progresses.

His points from 2019 finally dropped so he’s now about 170 in the world.  Not sure on his schedule for the rest of the season but I’d imagine he would look to play the 500 and then the Paris Masters.

He’s stated that he wouldn’t be playing in the Davis Cup, he did say he thought he wouldn’t be selected anyway as Evans and Norrie deserve it.

Norrie was absolutely superb, his forehand was on fire. Dimitrov looked like he was physically spent.   Norrie will win the title tomorrow as Fritz or Basilashvili won’t stop him. 
 

Murray and Norrie are going to destroy Team England in Aberdeen.  Is anyone going?

😂

It went as scripted for the first four games of the set.  Norrie a break up and looking good, and then Basilashvili did to Norrie that he famously did at Wimbledon to Murray, reeled off consecutive games to win the set.  Basilashvili is absolutely crushing Norrie with power currently.

From a set and a break up Basilashvili errored all over the court to get Norrie back in the match. Norrie closes it out 6-1 24 unforced errors in that last set.  Great win and he’s very likely to make the year end finals in Turin.
