Waking up to news of Murray and Konta's wins. Both with a big shout of making the final now. Great start to 2016 for British tennis.

They should really call themselves Ground News.

Everyone knows people can’t just go around saying what they are. It’d be chaos.

That would be like people having passports from countries they live in as if they had been conferred citizenship of those countries.Totally unthinkable.
