And in the men’s draw, Carlos Alcaraz and Casper Ruud will conclude the singles action when they meet in the final tonight. A tired-looking Rafael Nadal suffered defeat to American Frances Tiafoe in the Round of 16 stage, whilst world number one and defending champion Daniil Medvedev bowed out of the competition after being outgunned by Aussie Nick Kyrgios. Britain’s Emma Raducanu could not repeat her heroics from 12 months ago with a first-round exit at the hands of French veteran Alize Cornet. Serena Williams, who has signaled her intention to retire from tennis after the US Open, could make it no further than the third round in front of her beloved home fans.
