WTA Finals Day 6 – Cahill and Halep: Disgrace-gate; Pliskova hits form; Djokovic dominates in Paris

At last! After a couple of frustrating days in Shenzhen, there was no shortage of drama on Friday with two gripping matches and one extraordinary on-court coaching timeout involving Darren Cahill and Simona Halep.

Catherine Whitaker, David Law and Matt Roberts get stuck into it all on The Tennis Podcast.

How did it feel to watch Cahill call Halep a ‘disgrace’? Was it out of order or was Cahill well within his rights to use that language and tone? And what effect did it have on Halep?

There’s also plenty of chat about the sublime play of Pliskova and yet another win for Svitolina, this time over alternate Sofia Kenin.

In Paris, Novak Djokovic crushed Stefanos Tsitsipas in under an hour. What happened? And will Djokovic end up equalling Pete Sampras’ year-end World No.1 record?
