A quarter-final place in the girls’ singles was secured by Tornado Black, sister of Hurricane. Great things are forecast for both, although Michael Fish doesn’t think either will cause any trouble. The names were carefully chosen by their mother, who comes armed with a marketing degree, to attract attention (it’s working) – Black was originally Alicia but the Tornado was added when she first showed promised at tennis and mother made sure it stuck. Hurricane was always Hurricane.

He is Deliciano to Judy Murray and today Feliciano Lopez produced some tasty language during a dispute over a line call during his fourth-round defeat by Stan Wawrinka on No 2 Court. His industrial language was picked up by a BBC microphone and it was not long before the Beeb, so loath to give offence in these parts after last year’s Inverdalegate, was apolo-gising to one and all. Which surely makes it only a matter of time before we are given an apology for the contin-ued employment of Robbie Savage by BBC Sport.

Is it wrong to ask to look at a woman’s underwear? Pat Cash thinks so and so, unsurprisingly, do female players at Wimbledon. Cash opened fire on the All England Club over their all-white policy, which has been reinforced for this year. The former champion said the policy “has absolutely gone ridiculous” and claimed that some players had been told to “change their bras and tops because they had slight colour on them” while another had to change blue underwear because it showed through when they got “sweaty”.
