Guess who had Murray in his team and now can't seem to remove him.....

Wasn't looking good for Murray but still disappointing seeing he's had to pull out. The season just never got going for him did it.

British interest over - Edmund pulled out injured when 2-1 down.

Cilic now out too which means the bottom section of the draw is a free for all!!

Long term gains.
Cameron Norrie’s absolutely flying at the moment. Back to back challenger title wins and he’s up to 111 in the rankings. Hopefully he can make some progress in the slams next year.

Looks like Konta might miss out on the WTA finals - guess that is what happens when you lose in the 1st round in 5 consecutive tournaments.

The World Tour finals organisers will be hoping Nadal is fit enough.

At the moment it really is last man standing!

Terribly sad news that Jana Novotna has died of cancer aged only 49.

One of my earliest memories of watching tennis was her blow the Wimbledon final to Hingis. I was delighted when she won it the following year.

RIP

Very sad - think it was the 93 final she really had taken from her so like you say glad success was to come .

Also a very good doubles player.

Didn't know she was ill at such a young age with lots to offer I am sure.

Yeah its tragic that, I always liked Novotna. She was quite a robotic player but a real likeable personality and I was overjoyed for her to bury those demons finally when she won Wimbledon. And as said by Super Horns, she was one of the top doubles players of her time.

RIP Jana.

This could be the end of Murray as a top level performer. Hip injuries never properly go away

Murray pulls out of Australia. He won’t ever be the same player

Another win over night and plays somebody ranked below him (only just though) in the 3rd round so maybe fancies getting into the 2nd week?

Konta out to a qualifer.

I do have a feeling that this year she may fall off the pace a bit and hit around 30/40 in the world. I think she's been overperforming the last few years. She doesn't have the variety and adaptability to be up there with the very best.

Edmund's done very well. I thought Anderson was up there with the hardest first round draws as his serve is horrible to return and he's decent off the ground. And then to win in 5 in searing heat today...

Breakthrough tournament perhaps. I do think with consistency he is a top 20 player.

Yeah I'd agree with that, and he's certainly capable of the odd upset. Hopefully we'll see him kick on this year.

The heat might be the main danger to a lot of these players.

Getting very high - credit to these guys and girls for keeping going !

Edmund through to his first ever quarter final..

Home favourite nasty Nick or Dimitrov next.

A step up in class but both have a temper which Kyle.could take advantage of..
