Before we begin with Alex de Minaur’s match with Christian Garin, let’s relive the golden moment of the fortnight so far, Ricky Livid himself, Sir Cliff Richard.

Pat Cash, the 1987 Wimbledon champion and BBC pundit, has taken a dim view of Nick Kyrgios’s antics against Tsitsipas on Saturday. The word “mayhem” was used.

He’s brought tennis to the lowest level I can see as far as gamesmanship, cheating, manipulation, abuse, aggressive behaviour to umpires, to linesmen. Something has got to be done about it. It’s just an absolute circus. It’s gone to the absolute limit now.

Tsitsipas would make a line call and he’d go up there and start complaining, he’d be in his face – that’s part of gamesmanship, that’s the sort of stuff he does and I think there’s a limit.
