US Open Day 8 - A new Slam finalist beckons; Jaws on floor for Rafa

The World No.1 and defending champion departed, but it didn’t feel that surprising. Why? Catherine Whitaker and David Law explain all in the back of a car heading back from Flushing Meadows to Manhattan.

They also talk about the angst they felt while watching Donna Vekic overcome Julia Goerges, the curious case of Alexander Zverev and his conqueror Diego Schwartzman.

Then, after the evening session, David returns to talk about Nadal vs. Cilic and the burgeoning Bianca Andreescu.
