A former Champions event to celebrate 100 years of Centre Court and Sampras, Graf, Agassi, Serena etc didn't bother turning up. They're happy to take fame and fortune from the sport, but can't give any back to say thanks.

Britain's Cameron Norrie faces six-time champion Novak Djokovic in Friday's Wimbledon semi-final after his sensational comeback vs Goffin.

I was at a Leeds United Supporters AGM on Tuesday evening, majority of us were watching Norrie's victory on the TV screen in the pub. Once the match concluded, our chairman announced "we can concentrate on the meeting now"

Highly amusing in a year where Russians are banned, a Russian player makes the final, but playing for Kazakhstan (for money). She actually lives and trains in Moscow, so any prize money she makes will be taxed by Putin!

How did the Wimbledon officials allow that loophole to occur?
