AO Day 7 - Swiatek feels weight of World No.1

Our day began with watching Elena Rybakina beating Iga Swiatek on the Rod Laver, a result which set the tone for a dramatic day as Coco Gauff and Felix Auger-Aliassime were also beaten, while Sebastian Korda and Stefanos Tsitsipas survived five setters. Catherine, David and Matt get stuck into it all on the podcast.
