Emma Raducanu is into the semi-finals of the US Open. It sounds unbelievable, but it's happening. David and Matt try to make sense of it all with a discussion of how she beat Belinda Bencic and the hype surrounding her run. How might she fare against Maria Sakkari after her victory over Karolina Pliskova? Will we see an all-teenage final or will Aryna Sabalenka have too much for Leylah Fernandez?
On the men's side, there's chat about how Lloyd Harris missed his chance against Alexander Zverev as well as the extraordinary comeback ability of Novak Djokovic.
