Wimbledon Day 11 - Djokovic, Berrettini ready to rumble; Barty vs. Pliskova preview

Friday at Wimbledon saw Matteo Berrettini beat Hubert Hurkacz to reach his first Grand Slam final and Novak Djokovic beat Denis Shapovalov to reach his 30th.

Why did Hurkacz freeze? How has Berrettini coped with the pressure on him so well? What is it about his game that's so effective on grass? In what way does it feel like Shapovalov made a step forward despite the loss? How did Djokovic manage the match expertly? And what can we expect on Sunday?

Those are all questions for Catherine, David and Matt before they look ahead to the women's final between Ash Barty and Karolina Pliskova.
