Barty makes moves in Miami

As the Miami Open reaches the closing stages, Catherine Whitaker and David Law catch up to discuss the tournament’s major storylines from the second week so far: 

  • Why are David and Catherine surprised by how excited they are about Sebastian Korda’s potential? 
  • How does Roberto Bautista Agut cause Daniil Medvedev problems every time they face off? 
  • Was Stefanos Tsitsipas correct when he called his defeat to Hubert Hurkacz a ‘self explosion’? 
  • Why is Jannik Sinner Catherine’s candidate to be the future metronomic winner of titles? 
  • How well has Ash Barty been playing en route to her second straight Miami final? 
  • Could the moment Maria Sakkari saved six match points against Jessica Pegula be a turning point in her career? 
  • What on earth happened for Naomi Osaka to lose a 6-0 set as well as her 23-match winning streak? 
  • And how has Dan Evans made his way into the doubles final?
