Aus Open Day 11 - Did Barty Blow It?

The women’s final will be Sofia Kenin vs. Garbiñe Muguruza. How did that happen? Catherine, David and Matt discuss at the end of a scorching hot day in Melbourne. 

How much of an impact did the conditions have on the women’s semi-finals? In what way were they similar matches? Did Ash Barty choke against Kenin? How much will this defeat have hurt her? And who will have the edge in the final? 

In the night session, a hampered Roger Federer did take to the court against Novak Djokovic, but was comfortably beaten in straight sets. How did Federer’s fast start briefly distract Djokovic? Why did Djokovic not finish him off more ruthlessly? And who would pose more threat to Djokovic in the final - Thiem or Zverev?
