    Tsitsipas booed back on to court after taking another eight-minute toilet break immediately after losing the third set:

    It's out of order. That sort of interruption will clearly have affected his opponent's momentum.

    I reckon Evans could have been a top 10 player if he'd had his head screwed on like Andy Murray in his younger days.

    Emma Raducanu taking her good Wimbledon form into the US Open by winning in straight sets in the first round.

    Poor loss for Cameron Norrie yesterday losing in straight sets.
    Another cracking win for Emma, beating a player ranked 101 places above her. Potential matchup with the brilliant Ashleigh Barty if they both win their third round ties.

    That would be great to see.

    After more than 4 hours Dan Evans comes back from two sets down v Australian Alexei Popyrin and is through to the last 16.

    He now plays number 2 seed Daniil Medvedev.

    Fantastic match. Evans looked dead on his feet (as did Popyrin) but somehow raced through the clinching tiebreak.

    Brilliant result for him.

    Can't see him beating Medvedev though sadly.

    Emma Raducanu looks likes she going to be a very special player. Absolutely destroying her opponent tonight.

    Had match point for a double bagel but settled for 6-0 6-1.

    Her opponent was no mug either, had beaten Barty at the Olympics and top 50 player.

    Wow. Looks like Emma is the real deal. That is some result !

    Probably Barty next, should be a cracker

    Barty out. Shelby Rogers it is. Great chance for Raducanu

    Definitely winnable but sheís going to have a partisan crowd on a main court, will be tough.

    No doubt the trolls will use her Wimbledon exit as a reason why she wonít win but I reckon Emma is made of tough stuff, she was relentless yesterday.

    Great to see Emma recover so well and quickly after Wimbledon. Looks a great talent. A wee bit of a shame her current performances won't be getting the same coverage however in hindsight maybe not a bad thing.

    This kid's a star. So cool too. Konte might have bottled it when the American started to find her game late on but Radu just kept producing the goods.

    6-2 6-1 win for Emma.

    Bencic next, Olympic champion and 12th in the world, far tougher test but the way Emma is playing she can absolutely do it.

    I like the US Open. Total contrast to Wimbledon. Always a racket going on, music at the breaks, folk running up and down the stairs getting food and drink. It's laid back.
    It's a huge stadium too - at least the Ashe court is. More comfy too without some sweaty matron from the Home Counties pressed into your shoulder all the time trying to glimpse Cliff in the Royal Box or whatever.

    I speak from bitter expereince!

    Emma is undoubtedly a star. Brilliant how she responded to her Wimbledon disappointment

    Absolute donut I work beside took enormous pleasure in announcing today that GBs new tennis star isnít actually British (his words) but Canadian and started comparing her to Rusedski and even Lennox Lewis. I didnít hold back, pointing out she has been living in England since she was two years old and recognises the UK as her home. Also said Iíd rather look at the positives of having an enormous talent represent GB than looking for something to hold against her. He softened his stance a little after that but blamed the press for going OTT for someone who wasnít born here. Maybe they should put a little asterisk next to her name when reporting on her.

    Think I might avoid cheering Justin Rose on in the Ryder Cup since he was born in South Africa

    Shaky start for Raducanu. Loses the first two games.

  27. #56
    Absolutely stunning from Raducanu - wins the first set 6-3 by winning 5 games in a row and now a break up in the second set - 4-3!

    Raducanu wins - through to the semi finals without dropping a set.

    Outstanding.

    What a talent. What a player.

    You donít get to the semis of your second grand slam aged 18 without being a bit special.

    I don't think there's been a tennis player who has exploded on to the scene like this since Boris Becker won Wimbledon as a qualifier. Amazing stuff and a real shot in the arm for the women's game.

    Jamie Murray into the men's doubles semis too (as is Joe Salisbury) so a good day for the Brits.
