US Open Day 7 - Leylah gets New York on its feet

Halfway through this US Open and it just keeps getting better and better. Catherine and Matt chat about how defeat for Ash Barty changes the complexion of the draw, the way Leylah Fernandez out-Kerbered Angelique Kerber and took the New York crowd with her, how Spain is covering Carlos Alcaraz, Daniil Medvedev's masterclass against Dan Evans, the way Elina Svitolina stepped up to beat Simona Halep, and a big moment for Botic van de Zandschulp.
