    Had surgery done this morning according to an Italian newspaper.

    Would be the first time since 1998 that none of the 'big three" played.

    Andreeva into her first semi final at 17 years old

    Think her opponent was struggling but still got to take advantage..

    He’s won the tournament 14 times?

    Sinner ahead of Alcaraz. Niice. Not an Alcaraz fan really. Im sure hes a nice enuff fella but there's something about players fist pumping from the off that's just not my cup of tea.

    I see Zverev has settled out of court with his ex, which should allow him to beat Ruud later with a more uncluttered mind.

    Pity Sinner v Alcaraz couldn’t be the final.

    Ditto with Coco and Iga yesterday.

    Alcaraz overcomes Sinner in 5.

    Alcaraz v Zverev final it looks like.

    Sounds like Ruud was struggling with an injury?

    One win away from getting both right.

    Hope I’m wrong though. Come on Alcaraz

    Hope you're right. Come on Zverev! ;)

    Illness. Hard to gauge Zverev's form from that match.

    Alcaraz going to be the next one to dominate?

    With Sinner around possibly not.

    Meltdown by Zverev after going 2 sets to 1 up. Only winning 3 games in 2 sets.

    Had a bit of bad luck with a poor line call apparently.

    Murray injured at Queens - a doubt for Wimbledon?

    Watching Ostapenko vs Boulter and realised after 3 games I've been cheering for the wrong girl. I assumed the tall, lithe, blonde would be the Russian/Ukrainian one and the dumpy, pudgy, absolute unit would be the Brit. How confusing.

    Omg the Russian troll woman just served into the wrong court! She's worse than I.

    Jamie and Andy to play together in the doubles - mind you how long will they last if Andy isn't fully fit?

    Wimbledon starts tomorrow.

    I think Sinner will win the men's title. As for the women, it could be anyone. If I had to pick one, just to see if I guess right, I'll go Coco Gauff.

    Good wins for 3 of our Brits.

    Particularly Kartal

    Or not. What a shock loss for her from a set up

    Coco to beat Pegula in the final

    Injured apparently?

    Is Murray going to play tomorrow..

    Yes she was. Pity as I thought she was a real dark horse to go deep.

    I see Murray has pulled out .

    Predictable .

    When was the last time the defending champion got knocked out in the first round ?

    Braindead commentary. Vondrousova was carrying an injury female commentator kept talking about 'between the ears' stuff for most of the match. As for Chris Brabham shame BBC decided to move him across from Eurosport, he does my ears in.

    I agree @Manatleisure She hurt her foot in Berlin two weeks ago and it clearly hampered her movement

    @wfc4ever I will give you a clue…it was a very very good German lady, the last time it happened to a female

    And an Australian man, the last time it happened to a male

    Remember Hewitt losing to Big Ivo.

    Yes. Hewitt was the last man (2013) and amazingly the last female was Graf in 1994

    Novak Djokovic, the greatest player in the history of tennis, is in action at Wimbledon. And the BBC decides to show…Katie Boulter. Good job some footy was on to watch ;)
