But the same can't be said for Roger Federer, who has been stunned in straight sets by Poland's 14th seed Hubert Hurkacz.

    BEST YET

    Tracey Austin commended the quality of the first women's semi-final.

    This is the best women's match in the tournament so far in terms of quality. So many points have been won by winners or forced errors. They are trying to outfox each other changing spins and tempos.
