Peng Shuai and a line in the sand; Davis Cup semis set; Jo Konta retires
Catherine, David and Matt begin this episode by discussing the WTA’s decision to suspend tournaments in China as Peng Shuai’s situation remains unresolved. What sort of message does it send? And what’s been the response of the ATP and the ITF?
Onto the Davis Cup Finals, we cover how Serbia and the Russian Tennis Federation booked their spots in the last four, including heroics from Mikhail Kukushkin for Kazakhstan, impressive displays from Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev, and a nervy performance from Andrey Rublev.
