Roland Garros Day 7 - Medvedev makes his move; Swiatek shows she's human

How do you perk up a dull day at Roland Garros? You get Simon Briggs on the pod! He joined Catherine, David and Matt to talk through Iga Swiatek's worst performance in a while and why Qinwen Zheng could trouble her in the next round, the excellent form of Daniil Medvedev, a bad day for French players on Chatrier, Paula Badosa's injury, a much-needed easy win for Stefanos Tsitsipas, and growing excitement for a potential Novak Djokovic vs Rafael Nadal quarter-final. While Simon was with us, he also told us about how much he has to write about Emma Raducanu and the latest news he's hearing about Wimbledon's Russia ban.
