ATP Finals - Group stages over, bring on the semis! Wimbledon changes all-white rule for women at last

With the semi-final line-up set at the ATP Finals, we hear from Catherine in Turin, discuss the biggest storylines so far, and look ahead to the weekend's action.

What's impressed us most about Andrey Rublev at this tournament? In what way has Novak Djokovic looked a level above the rest of the field? Will his 3+ hours on court on Friday cost him against Taylor Fritz? Why did we expect more from Felix Auger-Aliassime? And how do we reflect on Daniil Medvedev's season?

All that plus reaction to Stefanos Tsitsipas' salty press conference, David dares to question Rafael Nadal on Twitter, and we discuss the news that Wimbledon have announced a change to their white clothing rule, meaning that female tennis players will be permitted to wear dark coloured undershorts.
