Well he's competing in an additional tournament as he gets himself back to full fitness so that's got to be a positive.

I will say one thing, Rafa has looked really good so far in this tournament.

Romania's Fed Cup captain, the former world number one and Grand Slam champion Ilie Nastase, has been heard making a derogatory comment about Serena Williams' unborn child.

As Romanian player Simona Halep was answering a question in English about Williams' pregnancy at Friday's Fed Cup draw in Constanta, the 70-year-old turned to one of his other team members and added in Romanian: "Let's see what colour it has. Chocolate with milk?"

Don't ask me why but I expected a man who dresses like this to be a thoroughly modern 21st Century man.

Got to give it to the big man, he's trying to make women's tennis half interesting.

By calling women bitches and fucking bastards.

Aye that'll get people interested in women's tennis.

He's an absolute cock of a man.

Former world number one tennis player Ilie Nastase has been barred from Romania's Fed Cup semi-final tie after apparently aiming abuse at the British team.
The 70-year-old appeared to call Great Britain's captain Anne Keothavong and player Johanna Konta "f*ing bitches".

Guys like Thiem are the future of tennis. Fantastic shotmaker and technique.   Getting down to business now with results.

A set and a break up. Two titles in a week, is that right?

Two weeks I think. Played Madrid between them and got to the quarters.

He's been so impressive. Definitely a future world number one and slam winner.

I've been more impressed with him over the last year or so than Thiem, which says it all as Thiem has been extremely good.

Zverev is undoubtedly a future major winner. He'll win loads.

French open begins tomorrow, if Nadal plays the way he did in Madrid can't see past him.

Thiem and Zverev are in with a shout.

Zverev doesn't look at his best on the clay. Maybe, like Murray he will get to grips with it. Verdasco did lots of hustling and his experience told in the end with the topspin giving him more control. Zverev's flat hitting suffered a bit in the wind I think.

  Murray was a bit wayward for a set, then found a bit of form. Don't fancy him for this . He doesn't seem as good on clay this year as he was last...........and even that was not good enough. Can't write him off mind as he is Andy Murray and he might improve as it goes on.  Draw would need to open up for him.
