They really shouldn't interview players right after matches like this, even if they have won.  How can they be thinking straight?
yes. It's too soon. I dont see the point in it, when they want to get off and get sorted.

Unfortunately the crowd will probably be the same. Understandably, but won't really help Murray.

I don't think I've the energy left to feel nervous, but no doubt they'll kick back in again very soon.

Know exactly how you feel Aileen.

Maybe they wont re-start till 6.30?  They should give eveyone a good 45 min break after that, help the crowd rejuvinise.

No, because they will have less than 3 hours to get it done and if it's long sets, he will come again tomorrow and suddenly be on the bac foot against Nole. They are restarting straight away.

So after all the shocks and upsets and people calling it the strangest grand slam ever... it's the top two seeds who will contest the final.

Now we know why Djokovic probably fell so often during his match -

Novak Djokovic’s footwork appeared a touch less secure than in the earlier rounds as he slipped to the ground a number of times in his semi-final against Juan Martin Del Potro on Friday, raising questions that it might have been because he was forced to change the condition of his footwear at the insistence of the All England Club.

This is the second time that a member of the ‘big four’ has been asked to change his shoes during the tournament.

But while Roger Federer's orange-soled shoes fell foul of Wimbledon’s sartorial rule requiring clothing to be “predominantly white”, the club had taken issue with the pimples on the sides of Djokovic’s shoes, which could be seen to give him an advantage.

The rule for grass-court shoes in the Grand Slam Handbook states that “shoes with pimples or studs around the outside of the toes shall not be permitted.

"The foxing around the toes must be smooth”. This was not the case when Djokovic played his first four rounds, as our photograph shows.


 
But after the breach of the code was brought to the attention of the Wimbledon referee, Andrew Jarrett, Djokovic was asked to file down the offending pimples.

Traction on the grass has been an issue for many players throughout the tournament, more than in any other year, and the extra pimples on Djokovic’s shoes would have helped him stay balanced when he moved down into his trademark low squat to retrieve wide balls.

One well-known former player told Telegraph Sport on Friday that he was not surprised that the referee’s office had intervened.

“When you look at how Novak moves into that splits position, and then pushes off with his toes, the pimples on the front of the shoe come into play.

“Other players were interested in what happened with those shoes.

"If Djokovic had been given the all clear, we would have seen more ­people using them, because this is a sport of tiny margins.

"A fraction more balance and speed on one movement could be enough to make the ­difference.”

Djokovic is already arguably the best mover in world tennis because of his ability to slide on any surface, where most players are able to slide only on clay.

Andy Murray, who is probably his closest rival in this department, takes small steps to decelerate as he changes direction, which is usually a safer but slightly slower option.
