Roland Garros Day 11 - Semis set; Mauresmo's disappointing remarks

With everyone still recovering from the very late finish to Rafael Nadal vs Novak Djokovic, Wednesday dawned with Amelie Mauresmo’s press conference, and Catherine was there to ask her about why the scheduling has favoured men’s matches over women’s matches this tournament. Mauresmo's comments - that it’s because men’s tennis is more appealing - cast a big shadow over the day’s play and we talked about why they were so damaging and disappointing on the pod.

Elsewhere, we discuss Iga Swiatek's form, whether Jessica Pegula can do even better than Grand Slam quarter-finals, how Daria Kasatkina and Casper Ruud both broke new ground, and Marin Cilic's continued resurgence.
