Wozniacki, This is a national programme. Now we're going to take

:00:00.:00:09.

you over to Wimbledon. When the players come off court,

:00:10.:00:42.

their job isn't finished. They come in here to the main interview room

:00:43.:00:47.

to face the world's press. It's a pretty intimidating place to be.

:00:48.:00:50.

We'll see the best of their play and hear what they have to say on Today

:00:51.:00:54.

at Wimbledon. Here's what's coming up: At this stage last year, Novak

:00:55.:01:02.

Djokovic was sent packing. Would he survive against Ernesto Gulbis?

:01:03.:01:06.

Roger was relaxing earlier in the day before he took on Mischa Zverev.

:01:07.:01:12.

We'll see Aga, Angie, Coco and Caroline as they look to book a

:01:13.:01:18.

place in the last 16. We've got the most beautiful evening again! We

:01:19.:01:21.

have been blessed with fabulous weather through this first week of

:01:22.:01:26.

Wimbledon. From next Monday, 128 men, 128 Willoughby be down to --

:01:27.:01:36.

women will be down to just 28 each. We're with the dream teem, Boris

:01:37.:01:39.

Becker and Martina Navratilova. Oh, my word. I thought you were going to

:01:40.:01:49.

say beautiful people, but you said beautiful evening. We're going to

:01:50.:01:54.

start reflecting on today's action with a trip down memory lane on

:01:55.:02:02.

Centre Court. 25 years ago Wimbledon crowned an

:02:03.:02:07.

unfor gettable champion. COMMENTATOR: What a glorious moment

:02:08.:02:16.

this is. The name Andre Agassi conjures that smile. That spirit is

:02:17.:02:22.

here now. Novak is a champion. He's been moulded. He knows what he's

:02:23.:02:27.

doing. You have to find the buttons that make him the best that he is.

:02:28.:02:30.

COMMENTATOR: Djokovic doing what he does so well. It's about finding the

:02:31.:02:34.

parts that help him feel clear so that he's able to execute his best

:02:35.:02:38.

game. COMMENTATOR: What a blend of tennis

:02:39.:02:43.

he produces. When he's out there feeling clear, he's remarkable. He's

:02:44.:02:50.

just remarkable. We see how he got on, in the second game of the first

:02:51.:02:53.

set, Djokovic tried to challenge a line call but was denied by the

:02:54.:03:01.

umpire, who said it was a too late. In the very next point, Djokovic

:03:02.:03:05.

challenged again. He was allowed this time.

:03:06.:03:16.

UMPIRE: Mr Djokovic is challenging the call on the right near side

:03:17.:03:19.

line. The ball was called out. This is what Djokovic thought of the

:03:20.:03:40.

umpire. It wasn't a late call. It wasn't a late call? No, it's right

:03:41.:03:46.

here. He hit the ball here, no chance to get. It that's two points

:03:47.:03:49.

in a row. Beginning of the match. Focus, please. Yeah, I am. Yeah,

:03:50.:03:55.

yeah you are. That exchange must have unsettled

:03:56.:03:58.

Djokovic. He was broken in the very next game.

:03:59.:04:06.

Ernesto Gulbis starting really well. We head back into the match in the

:04:07.:04:11.

eighth game of the first set. Gulbis is serving. Let's see if Djokovic

:04:12.:04:14.

has regained his composure. COMMENTATOR: And the back spun

:04:15.:04:29.

return off a big first serve brings Djokovic the first point. We look

:04:30.:04:35.

for signs of a lack of belief in Gulbis at any stage. That ball will

:04:36.:04:39.

react differently now, zipping through a little bit. (

:04:40.:04:50.

Oh, yes. That's the best shot he's hit today, no question. You see that

:04:51.:04:59.

first return skid a little bit, cause the error. Now he's trying to

:05:00.:05:05.

get himself back in business here. A real message to the other guy. That

:05:06.:05:08.

I'm upping up a notch. UMPIRE: Mr Gulbis is challenging the

:05:09.:05:32.

call the right baseline, the ball was called out. Should definitely

:05:33.:05:38.

not let these guys look up at their box and decide whether they should

:05:39.:05:43.

challenge based on what they see. Then he's mad at him because they

:05:44.:05:47.

tell him not to challenge, but he doesn't see that. You're like,

:05:48.:05:49.

"What? Doesn't matter any way. Should be an immediate challenge or

:05:50.:05:57.

no challenge. JOHN MCENROE: You have two clocks

:05:58.:06:20.

out there, one for challenges, a time clock for between points.

:06:21.:06:24.

He didn't take much time for this forehand to go from one end to the

:06:25.:06:31.

other. That's the leg strength John was

:06:32.:06:33.

talking about. UMPIRE: Game Djokovic. Third double

:06:34.:07:23.

fault for the match. STUDIO: The roar from Djokovic

:07:24.:07:26.

confirming that he had broken back. He went on to do so again. He closed

:07:27.:07:33.

out the first set, winning it 6-4 in 43 minutes. Andre doing a convincing

:07:34.:07:42.

impression of a Jedi. Novak was feeling the force. Novak Djokovic

:07:43.:07:50.

raced into a 4-0 lead in the second set. Gulbis handing him a second

:07:51.:07:57.

break with a double fault. And Boris, generally, in the second set

:07:58.:08:00.

in particular, Novak looked very impressive. It almost feels like the

:08:01.:08:06.

umpire triggered some old emotions, some positive aggressiveness that he

:08:07.:08:11.

was shying away from in the last 12 months. He won nine games in a row.

:08:12.:08:17.

Maybe, thankful to the umpire. Sometimes it takes something like

:08:18.:08:21.

that to just sharpen you up and wake you up. Many people thought Gulbis

:08:22.:08:28.

could provide him a close challenge. Clearly, Gulbis was struggling a

:08:29.:08:32.

bit. Just watch Djokovic close this set out.

:08:33.:08:39.

An ace does it. So second set done and dusted. As I say Gulbis was

:08:40.:09:03.

struggling a little bit. He called for the trainer. He received some

:09:04.:09:10.

treatment on his back. But he did get up. This looks very painful

:09:11.:09:14.

actually. He hasn't played in a while. Hasn't won a match in 13

:09:15.:09:21.

months. To come through two matches, it's going to affect your body.

:09:22.:09:26.

He carried on and there was some great tennis in the third set. The

:09:27.:09:33.

physio had done his work because Gulbis was moving much, much better

:09:34.:09:37.

and forced Djokovic into a third set tie-breaker. That is where we pick

:09:38.:09:42.

it up again. Boris in the commentary box with John McEnroe and Andrew

:09:43.:09:44.

Castle. JOHN MCENROE: It's a perfect example

:09:45.:10:03.

of great players making their opponents hitting that kind of ball.

:10:04.:10:07.

It's certainly makeable. BORIS BECKER: Said it earlier, that

:10:08.:10:12.

in a while we haven't seen Novak that engaged in a third round match.

:10:13.:10:15.

You see what it means to him. He's engaged! That was a lovely note

:10:16.:10:45.

that he held there, I thought. Certainly prepared to share his

:10:46.:10:50.

emotions. He hasn't always felt as loved and adored as Federer and

:10:51.:10:55.

Nadal. Is that fair to say? It's a difficult competition. You're

:10:56.:10:58.

talking about two of the most respected and loved and adored ever.

:10:59.:11:03.

Did it bother him? I think it matters to him. I think it's

:11:04.:11:06.

important for him to be respected, ideally loved. But over the last

:11:07.:11:14.

couple of years, he feels like he's getting the respect he deserves.

:11:15.:11:20.

That's probably because he's lost a couple of matches lately. Makes him

:11:21.:11:26.

more human. Quite an accomplishment to be talked about in the same

:11:27.:11:27.

league as those two. UMPIRE: Game, set, match, Djokovic.

:11:28.:13:14.

A very accomplished performance from a break of serve down, remember, in

:13:15.:13:18.

the first set. Novak Djokovic is into the second week here at the

:13:19.:13:27.

Championships for the tenth time. He really looks like he fancies this.

:13:28.:13:33.

I'm delighted with the performance today. I thought I raised the level

:13:34.:13:44.

of tennis, you know, comparing to the first couple of matches, the

:13:45.:13:48.

last couple of weeks, I think this was the most focussed I was on the

:13:49.:13:54.

court. Obviously, at the right time because Gulbis presents a great

:13:55.:13:57.

challenge, because he's very unpredictable. He's got a huge

:13:58.:14:01.

serve. Just in general I'm very pleased with the way I've felt, with

:14:02.:14:04.

the way I've played and I'm glad that the crowd enjoyed it. In the

:14:05.:14:07.

first set you spoke to the umpire. You used the word that he had to

:14:08.:14:11.

focus after a couple of misread points. That's two points in a row.

:14:12.:14:15.

Beginning of the match, focus, please. How difficult and unsettling

:14:16.:14:20.

is that and how important is it not to get to you? Well, I think he's

:14:21.:14:25.

probably frustrated with me saying that. Maybe it was not the right

:14:26.:14:30.

word to say, I apologise, but it was very odd that in the third game of

:14:31.:14:37.

the match two situations where I thought the call should have been

:14:38.:14:40.

different. Again, he's trying to do his job the best he can. I am too.

:14:41.:14:49.

Sometimes in the heat of the moment, you exchange things. I think we'll

:14:50.:14:54.

be fine. STUDIO: Interesting that the word he

:14:55.:15:00.

shouted was "focus" then afterwards, Djokovic found his focus. He

:15:01.:15:03.

projected and it worked. Sometimes you need - tennis is a fiery game.

:15:04.:15:07.

You need to be on fire emotionally, whether you show it or not, inside

:15:08.:15:10.

it's got to be burning. He hasn't been burning for a while. Today the

:15:11.:15:16.

fuse was lit. It's good to see. Anything could happen now. Bar race,

:15:17.:15:20.

he's -- Boris, he's certainly good enough to win here again. He's done

:15:21.:15:25.

it three times already. We felt the last 12 months really the passion

:15:26.:15:29.

element, that really set him apart from the rest, that fighting under

:15:30.:15:34.

difficult circumstances that for some reason disappeared. It came

:15:35.:15:37.

back in a third-round match at Wimbledon. That's the worrying part

:15:38.:15:40.

for the rest of the field. We always knew he could play. We felt the lack

:15:41.:15:45.

of passion almost. That's the big news today. When he told the umpire

:15:46.:15:49.

focus, indeed he was talking to himself. He said in the press

:15:50.:15:53.

conference, he said I know Boris has said my passion is back and he's

:15:54.:15:58.

right. He's right. He spoke very fondly of you. It seems like this is

:15:59.:16:03.

the most amicable parting of a team that's ever happened. A friendly

:16:04.:16:06.

divorced. They both still love each other. No, no we do. When you work

:16:07.:16:11.

with somebody so close together for three years, I've been with him more

:16:12.:16:15.

than with my wife - I mean during the day! You didn't have to qualify

:16:16.:16:21.

that. You get really personal with each other. For me to understand him

:16:22.:16:29.

better I have to know where he's at in these times, in a Grand Slam

:16:30.:16:33.

final, you really have to be everything. And for me to coach the

:16:34.:16:37.

right way, he has to be open. So there's a big sense of loyalty and

:16:38.:16:44.

respect. We may be professionally no longer working together but I love

:16:45.:16:47.

the guy. And you want him to win. Of course. Who would he face next? The

:16:48.:16:51.

answer was going to be a Frenchman, would it be Gael Monfils, who

:16:52.:16:55.

knocked out Kyle Edmund last time or Adrian Mannarino who nearly knocked

:16:56.:16:58.

over a ball boy and got fined for it. This one went to five sets and

:16:59.:17:02.

it's the unseeded Mannarino who has the upper hand as we join it now.

:17:03.:17:45.

Oh, that is absolutely sublime! He had no right to hit that shot.

:17:46.:18:00.

He's done it. Fortune favours the brave. Adrian Mannarino, for the

:18:01.:18:46.

second time, into the Fourth Round at Wimbledon, after three hours 31

:18:47.:18:53.

minutes of pulsiating tennis. STUDIO: So the 15th seed Gael

:18:54.:18:57.

Monfils has gone. Adrian Mannarino will be the one who faces Novak

:18:58.:19:01.

Djokovic next. Not for the first time, Boris. No, they played last

:19:02.:19:05.

year in the very first round. Novak was defending champion. A lot of

:19:06.:19:09.

respect to Mannarino, very awkward player on grass, almost old school

:19:10.:19:16.

type tennis. He very deservedly gets into the Fourth Round, a difficult

:19:17.:19:20.

opponent for Novak. In the age of Roger, Rafa and Andy Murray, here at

:19:21.:19:26.

Wimbledon hugely popular, do you think Novak feels he's having to

:19:27.:19:28.

fight too hard to get people to like him? Absolutely. He wants that love.

:19:29.:19:33.

The more you want it and the more the crowd knows it the less likely

:19:34.:19:36.

they are to give it to you. It's a bit of a struggle. I know I didn't

:19:37.:19:40.

feel it during my career until the end of my career. He will get it

:19:41.:19:43.

eventually. I feel that he should be getting more than he's getting. Like

:19:44.:19:46.

I said, when you ask for it, you ain't going to get it. No but he's,

:19:47.:19:51.

got respect of the other players. When you look at his route to the

:19:52.:19:55.

final, plenty of those players will be looking at him thinking, uh-oh.

:19:56.:20:04.

It's Thiem or Berdych in the quarter final, assuming Roger and Raonic

:20:05.:20:08.

keeps going. It's one or other of them, according to rankings. When

:20:09.:20:15.

you're in his team, do you talk about upcoming players, or is it

:20:16.:20:18.

strictly one match at a time? Literally the next practice. I

:20:19.:20:21.

wouldn't talk today about the Monday match. I'd talk today about the

:20:22.:20:26.

practice on Sunday, depending on the opponent on Monday. They are looking

:20:27.:20:31.

for a lefty now, there are not many left in the field. It's not, we're

:20:32.:20:36.

not looking ahead. I'm available. Exactly! It's literally about the

:20:37.:20:42.

next practice. I mention Dominic Thiem. He has been out on court

:20:43.:20:46.

until fairly late. His match finished about the same time as

:20:47.:20:52.

Roger Federer's. He was playing Jarrod Donaldson. This was a

:20:53.:20:58.

relatively straightforward exercise for Thiem, who disproves the theory

:20:59.:21:03.

that there's no I in team, because in his name there is! Do you think

:21:04.:21:07.

this might be his moment to step up? Everybody says he's the next big

:21:08.:21:12.

thing, him and Alex Zverev. He said grass is his least favourite

:21:13.:21:15.

surface. The way he's playing and the way he has improved, he can play

:21:16.:21:18.

on this surface. You have to adapt your strokes. He has loopy shots,

:21:19.:21:22.

especially on the forehand. He can adapt that. He's a strong guy. Great

:21:23.:21:26.

athlete. No reason why he can't play great on this surface, like Nadal.

:21:27.:21:30.

It wasn't his favourite surface either until he won it. The way the

:21:31.:21:33.

grass is playing, it gives those guys a chance. You're an expert now,

:21:34.:21:40.

seriously. I'm listening! Yes, it plays higher this year. Higher

:21:41.:21:45.

bounce because of the hot weather. The grass is burnt, it's nobody's

:21:46.:21:49.

fault. It's been 35 degrees two, three weeks before the tournament.

:21:50.:21:52.

That plays in the hand of the baseliners who like to rally longer.

:21:53.:21:56.

Thiem is one of them. It's going to be an exciting men's Championship.

:21:57.:22:02.

Until last night's late night fright that Andy Murray gave us, the best

:22:03.:22:05.

matches on Centre Court were the women's matches. We were expecting

:22:06.:22:10.

big things from Agnieszka Radwanska and Timea Bacsinszky. Let's bring

:22:11.:22:18.

you the story of their match. Tennis is part art, part science. It

:22:19.:22:25.

demands expertise in geometry, psychology, ballistics, statistics.

:22:26.:22:30.

Just as well they call Agnieszka Radwanska the professor, such is her

:22:31.:22:33.

grasp of her sport's curriculum, her skill in all its disciplines. She is

:22:34.:22:39.

a junior Wimbledon champion and yet strangely never graduated to full

:22:40.:22:42.

honours. Might that now be corrected. Against Timea Bacsinszky

:22:43.:22:52.

it's no gimme. The 19th seed broke immediately, Radwanska replied. But

:22:53.:22:58.

the Polish woman had never beaten Bacsinszky. In game five, the

:22:59.:23:03.

professor miscalculated. COMMENTATOR: Bacsinszky breaks

:23:04.:23:08.

again. For the encore, she seized the set.

:23:09.:23:15.

COMMENTATOR: Bacsinszky has the first set. Such backhanded

:23:16.:23:20.

brilliance had put Bacsinszky in charge. She'd also spent two hours

:23:21.:23:24.

less on court this week than her opponent. Radwanska's problem to

:23:25.:23:28.

solve. COMMENTATOR: Another magnificent

:23:29.:23:32.

backhand. Of all the women in the main draw, only Venus Williams has

:23:33.:23:37.

more wins on grass than Radwanska. She'd find solutions.

:23:38.:23:47.

COMMENTATOR: Two break points for Radwanska. Bacsinszky's serve was

:23:48.:23:53.

broken, but not her spirit. Not an inch given. Not a point surrendered.

:23:54.:24:23.

COMMENTATOR: I'm really enjoying this contest. Exhilirating to watch,

:24:24.:24:30.

but exhausting to play. Having lost the set, Bacsinszky's body creeked.

:24:31.:24:35.

An injured thigh meant she couldn't keep up with the ever rising

:24:36.:24:39.

standard. Instead she became an ununwilling volunteer in a master

:24:40.:24:41.

class. COMMENTATOR: Oh, perfect! Absolutely

:24:42.:24:49.

flying now. A late Bacsinszky break was purely academic. The end was

:24:50.:24:54.

coming. COMMENTATOR: That's wide. And

:24:55.:24:58.

Radwanska is through to the second week at Wimbledon. Class dismissed.

:24:59.:25:06.

I've been on the Centre Court a couple of times before, I really was

:25:07.:25:09.

feeling all the time very good and playing really good matches. Here as

:25:10.:25:12.

well, today, I think it was a great match. When you dare, you fight it

:25:13.:25:16.

to the last point. The first two sets were so tense and

:25:17.:25:20.

then Bacsinszky got injured. That was such a shame. I think the leg

:25:21.:25:26.

went on her in the second set. She was a little humbled. You don't get

:25:27.:25:31.

leg tape like that unless it's bothering. The third set was a

:25:32.:25:35.

formate. She was playing well. She's got her confidence back. You can't

:25:36.:25:40.

control your body. Generally speaking, what have you thought

:25:41.:25:42.

about the quality of women's matches in the first week? It's been

:25:43.:25:47.

interesting because it's been so wide-open. Nobody's really come to

:25:48.:25:51.

the fore and say OK, I'm here to take it. But at the same time, there

:25:52.:25:54.

are a lot of players still with a chance to win and some have played

:25:55.:26:03.

really good tennis, Garcia, Muguruza today. Kerber as well. Didn't see

:26:04.:26:08.

much of Halep to say one way or the other. Venus Williams must like her

:26:09.:26:12.

chances. I mean she's the only former champion here. She's healthy

:26:13.:26:16.

and looking very well. She's the only one who knows how to do it. The

:26:17.:26:21.

top seed and she was runner up last year is Angelique Kerber. Let's look

:26:22.:26:26.

at the best bits from her match with Shelby Rogers.

:26:27.:26:46.

COMMENTATOR: Great disguise. Terrific drop shot. Completely

:26:47.:27:01.

caught Kerber by surprise. Listen to the crowd's reaction.

:27:02.:27:04.

They've been sensing that this could be a surprise right from the word

:27:05.:27:06.

go. Ah, great tennis! Terrific point.

:27:07.:27:35.

Kerber was completely out this afternoon point, but two, maybe

:27:36.:27:37.

three times but she found a way. Not good enough. Not good enough for

:27:38.:27:58.

her, Angelique Kerber. Couldn't get to it, Rogers.

:27:59.:28:19.

Terrific point. Here are two match points for the

:28:20.:29:09.

number one seed. APPLAUSE

:29:10.:29:18.

What a response. Oh, it's long! And Kerber is

:29:19.:29:32.

through. And the crowd stand for both of

:29:33.:29:45.

them. It has been a wonderful contest. And somehow, she is still

:29:46.:29:52.

in the championship that she must be wondering quite a while. Kerber is

:29:53.:29:59.

recovering from a set and a break down to win this match, could match

:30:00.:30:04.

like that reignite her season? Absolutely, she was down 0-30 in the

:30:05.:30:10.

second set so a great fightback, I have seen more firepower from her

:30:11.:30:14.

and her forehand down the line seems to be picking. She is to passive and

:30:15.:30:20.

she knows that but the fire is there. She is more positive during

:30:21.:30:26.

the match and is playing more positive tennis. It is about time

:30:27.:30:31.

that Germany had another women's winner? Yes, Lizzy Caoimhe

:30:32.:30:37.

semi-finals, they were knocking at the door loudly and the Germans were

:30:38.:30:43.

very harsh with. To have another German number one, it has been a

:30:44.:30:48.

long time. But we very get used to winning. She tries her best, she

:30:49.:30:54.

works hard, she has no attitude, she does not carry her nose high, but we

:30:55.:30:59.

are worried she was stuck in the same form as last year and the

:31:00.:31:04.

competition has started to read your game. Maybe she needs a super coach,

:31:05.:31:09.

Martina! Why are you looking at me? I don't speak German! I think she is

:31:10.:31:18.

in good hands. We will see. And she is lefty. You are a lefty. I am

:31:19.:31:24.

asking you from the German people! We will leave that discussion! It

:31:25.:31:29.

might happen and it started here! Serena Williams... I would think so,

:31:30.:31:42.

I am a great baby-sitter. I'm not sure she agrees. She has told me

:31:43.:31:49.

some set rules that I am not allowed to do that I usually do, I usually

:31:50.:31:54.

have candy around the house. That is not allowed any more, I am trying to

:31:55.:31:59.

follow her rules but we will see. The question was, do you think

:32:00.:32:04.

Serena Williams will make the honorary anti Fur Caroline

:32:05.:32:06.

Wozniacki? She has offered baby-sitting services! -- aunt for.

:32:07.:32:18.

Mischa Zverev joked that the only way he could beat Roger Federer was

:32:19.:32:23.

to give him a very mean stare at the beginning of the match. Let us see

:32:24.:32:25.

if that worked. You talk about little steps and

:32:26.:32:38.

getting into position. Roger, the Australian Open champion,

:32:39.:32:57.

keeps on reaching milestones, his 10,000th ace here at Wimbledon.

:32:58.:33:02.

Middle Saturday, some of the big names in sport are watching. This

:33:03.:33:06.

match, the old generation against the new generation. And Boris and

:33:07.:33:12.

Martina, use are plenty of this match. Zverev played very well but

:33:13.:33:19.

Roger was sensational? He served and followed more than usual, trying to

:33:20.:33:24.

take the ball away from the dead. One of the classic players but Roger

:33:25.:33:29.

Federer had too much came for him. That is how we used to play tennis

:33:30.:33:34.

on the grass, chipping and charging. It is possible but having said that,

:33:35.:33:40.

I had a feeling that Roger is still holding back a little. He is just

:33:41.:33:45.

doing enough. The first half was spectacular but in the second round,

:33:46.:33:50.

today, he is cruising, he knows how good he is at the moment. I have

:33:51.:33:53.

seen him play better and more dominant. Isn't that a credible --

:33:54.:34:03.

and incredibly clever thing to do? Yes, he doesn't need to jump higher

:34:04.:34:15.

than he does. Let us hear from him. Congratulations, three sets in under

:34:16.:34:20.

two hours, Mischa Zverev threw everything at you but you had him

:34:21.:34:24.

ducking for cover, United? I thought it was a good, fun match to play. He

:34:25.:34:29.

will always see some blogs and passing shots and drop shots and

:34:30.:34:33.

everything. I thought it was nice to see that again and the crowds were

:34:34.:34:38.

unbelievable and he has a great guy and we fed off one another and it

:34:39.:34:43.

was a great match. I am very happy. Grigor Dimitrov in the next round,

:34:44.:34:47.

he has been likened to you in the past but has never managed to beat

:34:48.:34:52.

you in the five times you have met. Tough prospect? Every time I play

:34:53.:34:56.

him he is stronger than before because he is the perfect age where

:34:57.:35:00.

he strives to understand his game, he is physically strong. Mentally he

:35:01.:35:05.

took the next step again, what you'd expect from a player of his calibre

:35:06.:35:10.

and age and he had a Great Run in Australia, almost beaten Rafer Nadal

:35:11.:35:14.

in the semifinals so we could almost have played in the finals in

:35:15.:35:17.

Australia. I am ready for a tough one and it will be exciting because

:35:18.:35:23.

he is a great shotmaker. Well done. And he gives a lovely smile. Isn't

:35:24.:35:28.

that a gorgeous sunset! Roger only needs to do what he needs to do. But

:35:29.:35:34.

he did come up with some fabulous shots? He plays a very controlled

:35:35.:35:39.

game. He knows exactly what he wants to do, it sometimes doesn't work and

:35:40.:35:44.

I always felt that against Zverev today he was a little bit better.

:35:45.:35:48.

Whenever he had to put more horsepower in, he did. He is 35, he

:35:49.:35:56.

is pacing himself. He knows when to attack and accelerate and went to

:35:57.:36:01.

cruise. That is a fair point, Martina, you carried on playing for

:36:02.:36:07.

a long time, you have to take a poll. If you don't need to run,

:36:08.:36:13.

don't! Don't use any more emotional or physical energy, you want to win

:36:14.:36:18.

playing your game, straightforward, you want to try out some things when

:36:19.:36:22.

you get ahead and with Roger playing somebody like Misha Zverev, it was

:36:23.:36:27.

like cat and mouse, whatever he might throw at Roger, he can take

:36:28.:36:32.

that, he can dish it out even more so. It was a fun match for Roger to

:36:33.:36:36.

play, he likes to be challenged and playing somebody with a different

:36:37.:36:40.

style but yes, you want to play as well as you need to. You don't need

:36:41.:36:44.

a different style but yes, you want to play as well as you need to. You

:36:45.:36:47.

don't need to jump any higher, then however high that fence is. Then buy

:36:48.:36:50.

as much as you need to. His brother, Alex, was in action, against

:36:51.:36:56.

Sebastien Esther. Trying to get through to the last 16. Let's have a

:36:57.:36:58.

look. -- Sebastien Ofner. Some lovely tennis being played.

:36:59.:37:38.

6-4, 6-4, 6-2. Sebastien was the surprise package and Zverev go to

:37:39.:37:43.

play last year 's runner-up, Milos Raonic. What kind of match will that

:37:44.:37:49.

we? Just checking that is correct! Milos Raonic is one of the biggest

:37:50.:37:53.

servers in the game and came within one point to beating Roger, Roger

:37:54.:38:01.

came to within one point. I think you might have had a hiccup since,

:38:02.:38:07.

but he is starting to play better again and money is coming to terms

:38:08.:38:10.

with the fact that he needs to be more aggressive and is getting more

:38:11.:38:15.

comfortable with it. That big serve is working, 21 aces and 138 mph

:38:16.:38:23.

second serve! Are you kidding? One of the stories I thought was

:38:24.:38:28.

fabulous in the first week was little Dudi Sela, beating John

:38:29.:38:34.

Isner, but that took it out of him. He was up against Grigor Dimitrov

:38:35.:38:39.

and the 2014 Queen's champion, hugely popular, cruising through

:38:40.:38:43.

slightly under the radar this year. But watch this for a shot.

:38:44.:38:58.

Another great rally. Sela into the net. And Dimitrov had taken the

:38:59.:39:12.

first set 6-1, he followed up by taking the second 6-1, the trainer

:39:13.:39:17.

came out to look at Sela and the curse struck again, he retired, the

:39:18.:39:22.

ninth man to have to retire hurt during a match. But all smiles. And

:39:23.:39:28.

Dimitrov will not complain at all! Catching up of other matches, Jo

:39:29.:39:33.

Wilfried Tsonga came out today, he had deserved to stay in the match

:39:34.:39:37.

against Sam Querrey and the same as at the French Open, he was broken

:39:38.:39:42.

immediately and he went out. Sam Parry upset no vote Djokovic at this

:39:43.:39:46.

stage last year. Dominic Thiem into the last 16 for the first time, the

:39:47.:39:56.

rising star of the men's game. Tomas Berdych and David Ferrer, with a

:39:57.:40:01.

combined age of 66 for that match... Tomas Berdych coming out in straight

:40:02.:40:07.

sets. We can wrap up other matches with Phil Jones. Caroline Wozniacki

:40:08.:40:16.

has been a world number one, Grand Slam finalist, junior champion here

:40:17.:40:20.

and says she is a lover of grass. The mystery remains why the popular

:40:21.:40:24.

Danish player hasn't reached the quarterfinal in the women's singles

:40:25.:40:29.

at Wimbledon. Estonian Anett Kontaveit was not about to solve the

:40:30.:40:32.

mystery in the first set of stunning power hitting on Court Number One.

:40:33.:40:36.

Sure-footed or not, it was coming off for the unseeded 21-year-old and

:40:37.:40:41.

she took the first set. Before twice serving for the match in the second.

:40:42.:40:47.

But Caroline Wozniacki is a competitor. Surrender was not in her

:40:48.:40:51.

game plan. This was sweet Caroline and she levelled matters in the

:40:52.:40:56.

tie-break. Before hitting her potent potential into the decider to win in

:40:57.:41:02.

three. Don't expect this cocoa to calm you down before bed. Vandeweghe

:41:03.:41:10.

is last 16 opponent after another bold and brilliant bashing of Alison

:41:11.:41:14.

risk. Cocoa and cash, into big number two. Svetlana Kuznetsova has

:41:15.:41:20.

avoided the searchlights, a stealthy journey in the Wimbledon shadows for

:41:21.:41:23.

the seventh-seeded Russian of Grand Slam winning pedigree who beat

:41:24.:41:28.

Paloma Herzog in little more than one hour. Petra Martic is a Croatian

:41:29.:41:33.

qualifier and is just one win away from the last eight after downing

:41:34.:41:39.

the wildcard, Diyas of Kazakhstan. The player from split is clearly a

:41:40.:41:44.

woman of grit. The win sets up a non-seeded contest on Monday against

:41:45.:41:48.

Magdalena Rybarikova, one of the stories of the grass court season.

:41:49.:41:52.

The Slovakian was out seven miles through injury last year but the big

:41:53.:41:59.

tournament favourite Discover last round, and the Ukrainian Sri Lankan.

:42:00.:42:08.

Garbine Muguruza was runner-up in two years ago, French Open champion

:42:09.:42:12.

last year and is displaying signs of recapturing her heady days. She

:42:13.:42:18.

drunk just four games to go Mania's Sorana Cirstea as she strolled into

:42:19.:42:21.

a mouthwatering Monday match against the world number one, Angelique

:42:22.:42:27.

Kerber. She has got that contented air of a contender. McGrath is

:42:28.:42:34.

particularly interesting in terms of a major contender. -- Muguruza. She

:42:35.:42:44.

seems to be playing more relaxed tennis, she played really well today

:42:45.:42:48.

and also go up after this match so one of the former finalists will not

:42:49.:42:51.

be in the finals again so she seems to be playing much better, relaxed.

:42:52.:42:57.

I don't know how much the fact that Conchita Martinez is her coach, I

:42:58.:43:02.

think it maybe has taken some pressure off. I think his wife has a

:43:03.:43:09.

child coming. Mugurza has been talking about the impact of Conchita

:43:10.:43:16.

Martinez, the last Spanish woman to win Wimbledon, on her preparation

:43:17.:43:21.

through this Wimbledon. Yes, of course you knows how to play here. I

:43:22.:43:26.

think she has a lot of experience and that is hard to find, somebody

:43:27.:43:31.

who has been in your shoes and can tell you, I have been there, I know

:43:32.:43:35.

what it feels like, you have to do this and this and it will be better.

:43:36.:43:40.

This works, these words have a meaning because she is saying this,

:43:41.:43:44.

it is for her reasons and it is great to have her in the team. It is

:43:45.:43:49.

not just about how you play? It is about the mental aspect as well but

:43:50.:43:55.

she can bring? It is more of that. I think the tennis, I feel good, I

:43:56.:43:59.

have been working for a long time and in those moments, like in the

:44:00.:44:03.

Grand Slam, the mental details on the key part. I was listening to

:44:04.:44:07.

Billie Jean King talking about this in reference to Jo Konta, going to

:44:08.:44:11.

the emotional office and sorting out the business and with lots of

:44:12.:44:14.

players, that is what makes the difference? So much of the game is

:44:15.:44:18.

played between the years and you have to have the confidence to

:44:19.:44:23.

impart that plan, whatever that may be. I am sure that a lot of the

:44:24.:44:28.

coaches tell the players the right thing, it is not just what you say,

:44:29.:44:35.

it is who says it. Players have a tendency to listen to people who

:44:36.:44:38.

have been there. You might be telling me the right thing but I am

:44:39.:44:41.

going to listen to Boris! And I think that is what she was saying,

:44:42.:44:47.

Conchita knows what she is talking about so you pay attention. It

:44:48.:44:51.

worked for her. You don't have to reinvent the wheel. Just pay

:44:52.:44:55.

attention to what people say that know what they are talking about and

:44:56.:44:59.

hopefully implement that. She has got the talent. There was no British

:45:00.:45:03.

interest in the singles but plenty in the doubles. We can catch up on a

:45:04.:45:09.

little bit of that because we saw the Jamie Murray has teamed up with

:45:10.:45:12.

Bettina Hingis in the Mixed Doubles and they won their match 6-3, 6-0.

:45:13.:45:22.

And Jamie Murray has bagged a very good partner. Heather Watson and

:45:23.:45:37.

Naomi Broady three sets to Kirsten Flipkens they are part of the

:45:38.:45:41.

women's doubles and there was a double defeat for Naomi Broady as

:45:42.:45:44.

she and her brother, Liam Broady, also lost. They lost 6-4, 7-5. To

:45:45.:46:00.

the Czech duo. This was a developing story and you might have seen this

:46:01.:46:04.

much earlier on BBC Two. Marcus Willis, the man who played Roger

:46:05.:46:08.

Federer on Centre Court in singles last year, teamed up with

:46:09.:46:12.

18-year-old Jay Clarke from Derby for the doubles, they lost the first

:46:13.:46:17.

set, winning the next two and in the fifth, they knocked out the reigning

:46:18.:46:25.

champions, Herbert and Nicolas Mahut. Winning that 6-3. That is a

:46:26.:46:31.

huge victory for Willis and Clarke. There is some excitement in terms of

:46:32.:46:35.

who to look out for next in the age after Andy Murray, whenever that

:46:36.:46:40.

comes. Could it be 16-year-old Aidan McHugh? His 17th birthday tomorrow,

:46:41.:46:43.

before the Championships he was practising with the world number

:46:44.:46:50.

one. And he is very good at encouraging younger players. The

:46:51.:46:54.

real next generation. He is in the Boys' Singles and he came back from

:46:55.:47:02.

two breaks down to beat the American Ross 6-2, six 74. And he is coached

:47:03.:47:08.

by Toby Smith, the Davis cup captain Leon Smith's brother. When you look

:47:09.:47:11.

at those who have won the Boys' Singles titles here, some of the

:47:12.:47:16.

great names, Roger Federer, Stefan Edberg, Bjorn Borg, but Boris

:47:17.:47:19.

Becker, he went straight for the main thing! Sticking with the

:47:20.:47:25.

British players, Jo Konta is up against Caroline Garcia on Monday

:47:26.:47:28.

and it could be Azarenka of Halep in the quarterfinals. We don't want to

:47:29.:47:34.

get ahead of ourselves. Joe has been speaking to Jonathan overland. It

:47:35.:47:38.

might have been four years since the Brits last saw her ladies champion

:47:39.:47:43.

crowned on the hallowed turf but this year, it is all about the

:47:44.:47:48.

tournament favourite, Johanna Konta. Regardless of who she might face on

:47:49.:47:52.

her side of the draw, it seems like is no stopping her. Can she really

:47:53.:48:03.

reach the final next week? Us British would love it. Just imagine,

:48:04.:48:13.

the correlation of the new pearly Queen of SW19. Do you feel a genuine

:48:14.:48:21.

contender at this time to win the title? I believe every single woman

:48:22.:48:24.

in the draw is a contender, I include myself in that group and you

:48:25.:48:28.

will see some great matches on Monday and I think it obviously will

:48:29.:48:35.

get more narrow as to who will be the champion. Do you ever dream of

:48:36.:48:42.

playing the Wimbledon final? I think every player dreams of playing in

:48:43.:48:46.

grand slam finals. What about you? I am a player as well so I include

:48:47.:48:52.

myself in that category. I think that growing up you dream about

:48:53.:48:54.

being the best player in the world, I dream about that. There is time

:48:55.:49:02.

for dreaming and time to keep in mind the work that you have to put

:49:03.:49:07.

in and definitely here, with the intention of wanting to make it a

:49:08.:49:11.

full two weeks, I am preparing the best that I can and training the

:49:12.:49:14.

best that I can and competing the best that I can. I do not think that

:49:15.:49:17.

the feelings will be any different, I will definitely be looking forward

:49:18.:49:22.

to playing my next round on Monday. Right now, between now and then, it

:49:23.:49:30.

will be to switch off as best I can. It will be a long Sunday for Jo

:49:31.:49:34.

Konta. Even if you do not want to think about it, you have to.

:49:35.:49:39.

Martina, what is your advice? Is he ready to make that big step? She

:49:40.:49:44.

never got to the second week. Step one is accomplished, it is now about

:49:45.:49:48.

the next match. With a woman it is tough because they play Monday and

:49:49.:49:51.

Tuesday, she has a tough match against Garcia, so relax and do not

:49:52.:49:57.

stress and tried to cross the teaser. The eyes.

:49:58.:50:09.

-- dot the Is. She is the one player who can go home. I always had my own

:50:10.:50:20.

pillow. And she is used to home cooking. It is about handling the

:50:21.:50:24.

pressure. Hopefully she will get better sleep than other players. At

:50:25.:50:28.

the end of the day, it is whoever who can play to win. Who does not

:50:29.:50:33.

shy away from the pressure and embraces that moment. She is

:50:34.:50:36.

probably talking more than any of the others about the mental side of

:50:37.:50:41.

things. She has done a lot of work on that over a number of years. She

:50:42.:50:45.

had a psychologist and it really changed her career. About two years

:50:46.:50:51.

ago she was an average player, with all respect, and all of a sudden

:50:52.:50:55.

something kicked in and she became his superstar, almost. Pretty much

:50:56.:51:01.

overnight. And it is mainly because of the psychology. It is what you

:51:02.:51:07.

said, it is between the ears, you have to hit that 30, 40, when it

:51:08.:51:12.

matters. That is the big difference between winning and losing. In your

:51:13.:51:18.

opinion, can she win it? Of course she can. There is no reason she

:51:19.:51:27.

cannot. There is no reason, her back, she is injured, no, everything

:51:28.:51:32.

is working. And all of those 16 players left will be thinking, I

:51:33.:51:36.

can't do this. It is pretty much that. I do not know if I could

:51:37.:51:40.

single any player out, that there is no way this player can win. Just

:51:41.:51:45.

about everyone. Ostapenko, unseeded, she plays to win. Maybe she will

:51:46.:51:53.

give some collective confidence to the locker room. Maybe I can do it,

:51:54.:52:09.

also. You like Coco? I do, I do. And your growth. Konta. They have big

:52:10.:52:16.

serves and big weapons and when things go their way they can control

:52:17.:52:17.

the match. Gustav. And today's Shot of the Day comes

:52:18.:52:30.

from the Frenchman who guarantees entertainment.

:52:31.:52:42.

If there isn't the shot of the tournament so far, I do not know

:52:43.:52:53.

what is. Wheel spin! He is such a showman, I am sad he is not in this

:52:54.:52:59.

any more, Monfils. Want to watch. That is partly the problem, he loves

:53:00.:53:03.

to be the showman and you want to be the show man because you want to see

:53:04.:53:08.

the shot of the day, but he lost, and ultimately in tennis ages who

:53:09.:53:16.

wins the last point. A bit like Fabio Fognini, does this add up to

:53:17.:53:21.

winning a match? Not as far as that match is concerned because Andy

:53:22.:53:23.

Murray came through in four sets and he now faces Paire and he has been

:53:24.:53:32.

talking to Russell Fuller. We have only played once before and that was

:53:33.:53:40.

in Monte Carlo last year and it was very strange, he served for the

:53:41.:53:43.

match in the third set and I managed to come back and win that. It was a

:53:44.:53:48.

huge match. It was a turning point in my season, I had struggled since

:53:49.:53:53.

the Australian Open, until the clay-court season. When I got

:53:54.:53:58.

through that match I started to feel a lot better. I played some really

:53:59.:54:04.

good tennis. After that. But I have never played him on the grass and I

:54:05.:54:08.

have not seen him play lots on the grass. But he has got a big game, he

:54:09.:54:13.

serves well. Great backhand, great touch. So there should be some fun

:54:14.:54:20.

points. There are standard players and players where you do not know

:54:21.:54:23.

what to expect and Andy Murray has had the ones you don't know what to

:54:24.:54:28.

expect every single time. He has a strange looking forehand but big

:54:29.:54:34.

weapons on all sides. He can hit through you and around you, he is a

:54:35.:54:36.

tricky opponent. CAR WHEELS SQUEAL. That sounded very

:54:37.:54:55.

fast! 16 names, just big two names who either potential champions. You

:54:56.:55:00.

are making this difficult, the player who impressed me the most is

:55:01.:55:07.

Rafa Nadal. After not playing the grass court tournament, three weeks

:55:08.:55:11.

off, still flying very high from the French Open when, he went like a

:55:12.:55:16.

freight train yesterday and the way that he plays, offensive, big

:55:17.:55:20.

serves, taking the ball early, it is something I have never seen him

:55:21.:55:25.

doing on the grass and the others... Roger, Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic.

:55:26.:55:29.

Next week is always a difference between the men and the boys, those

:55:30.:55:35.

four gentlemen are men. There you have it. And none of those exciting

:55:36.:55:38.

boys that we have been talking about, Dominic Thiem, Zverev, they

:55:39.:55:46.

will not pop up on any semifinal? Semifinal, probably, maybe a final,

:55:47.:55:50.

but I think one of those four men will be holding the trophy again.

:55:51.:55:54.

Now it's time for social of the day - and you'll remember on Thursday,

:55:55.:55:56.

Bethanie Mattek-Sands was injured playing here at Wimbledon. Today the

:55:57.:55:58.

American confirmed she's dislocated her patella. Let's have a listen. I

:55:59.:56:20.

will be out for a while. But I want to keep you guys updated. Because

:56:21.:56:26.

all of your messages have been really inspiring and they have meant

:56:27.:56:33.

a lot to me. I have probably read most of them, I cannot reply to all

:56:34.:56:37.

of them. But the support has been amazing. I will get through this! We

:56:38.:56:45.

really do wish her well and hope that she does get through because

:56:46.:56:50.

Bethanie Mattek Sands is a fantastic doubles players in particular and

:56:51.:56:57.

she is obviously out of London. That is the way the draw is looking for

:56:58.:57:04.

the men at this stage. And we will have a look at the bottom half.

:57:05.:57:17.

Milos Raonic and Zverev coming up. Roger Federer is playing a mirror

:57:18.:57:22.

image of himself with Dimitrov. Tomas Berdych is very a contest on

:57:23.:57:28.

grass, I like him at the moment, he has got something else. Look at the

:57:29.:57:32.

moon, that is a full-blown! Right, the top half of the women's draw.

:57:33.:57:41.

Angelique Kerber and Muguruza. The highest quality, I have to go with

:57:42.:57:47.

Garbine Muguruza. The way she played today. Venus Williams going strong.

:57:48.:57:57.

Ostapenko. You mentioned her. She has not been on a very big court.

:57:58.:58:02.

People have not seen her play but she is incredible, against the

:58:03.:58:09.

French Open champion. And Azarenka against Halep should be a good one

:58:10.:58:13.

as well. Fingers crossed for Jo Konta. We don't have an order of

:58:14.:58:16.

play from Monday just yet but the last 16 of the men and women are all

:58:17.:58:22.

in action and you be using all of the BBC options, BBC One, BBC Two,
