And another...

 

10-10. What a match this is!

 

Poor Djokovic is supposed to be playing his match after this one...

The woman who screamed should be expelled and banned.

She clearly got too over excited, despite numerous reminders from umpire Kader Nouni (with his epic deep voice :D) telling the crowd to not call out during the rallies.

 

But glad that Konta got through, despite that strange ending. Her next opponent - Venus Williams... that's going to be tough. Amazing to think that her last two opponents Konjuh and Ostapenko were only born the same year she made her debut!

I have no interest in tennis but could be persuaded to listen to that lovely velvety- voiced umpire, if only the dratted commentators wouldn't insist on quacking over him. :)

So Murray's out then, clearly struggling with his hip injury that affected him before the tournament.

 

Djokovic is also out having to retire with an elbow injury.

 

In the meantime, Federer's still cruising along, having yet dropped a set. He's going to take some stopping...

Federer will win easily and we will see one of the less interesting finals in recent times.

Is there still any realistic chance of a Brit winning in any of the other competitions at Wimbledon apart from the ladies singles? Is Jamie still on to win in the doubles?

He is on Centre at the moment. This first set is fairly even.

What sort of TV channel moves away from a highly entertaining match with a British player at 6 5 in the final set? Grrr.

Jamie Murray and Heather Watson are both in the semi-finals of the mixed doubles - they could meet in the final. Watson and Kontinen are the defending champions of course.

 

Venus Williams is in her 9th singles final, equalling her sister. Should be a close final - Muguruza's in good form.
