Aus Open Day 12 - Thiem vs. Djokovic Final Set; Kenin vs. Muguruza Preview

After Dominic Thiem beat Alexander Zverev to reach his first Grand Slam final on a hard court, Catherine, David and Matt were joined by The Telegraph’s Simon Briggs to talk all about it. How did Thiem adjust mentally and tactically from the Nadal match? Why did Zverev not play more aggressively? And in what way can Thiem trouble Djokovic? 

Looking ahead to the women’s final, there’s discussion about why Sofia Kenin hasn’t received much hype, how her career might develop after this run, and Garbine Muguruza’s pre-season Kilimanjaro excursion. 

Finally, stay for an all-time great anecdote from Simon.
