Wimbledon Day 8 - Calm Kyrgios, Halep comes home, Nadal countdown

On what used to be Magic Monday, everything felt a lot calmer and more manageable at Wimbledon today, meaning we had time to do our favourite thing and record on site. But there was no shortage of talking points as the quarter-final line-ups were completed. 

In what way was Nick Kyrgios a changed man? How did Cristian Garin complete the first two sets to love comeback of the tournament against Alex de Minaur? And how will Taylor Fritz and Rafael Nadal match up in their quarter-final?

In the women's draw, we talk about Simona Halep’s incredible performance in her first match back on Centre Court since winning the title in 2019, her quarter-final with Amanda Anisimova, Ajla Tomljanovic’s emotions, and the issue of Elena Rybakina representing Kazakhstan but being born in Moscow.
