Ons Jabeur [3] v Tatjana Maria, Novak Djokovic [1] v Cameron Norrie [9]; we all had these as our first two semi-finals, right? Of course we did, just as we knew that come today, we’d be watching Simona Halep [16] v Amanda Anisimova [20], Ajla Tomljanovic v Elena Rybakina [17], Taylor Fritz [11] v Rafael Nadal and Cristian Garín v Nick Kyrgios.

There was something really special about yesterday’s matches, all four going the distance with all four winners coming from behind – and it’s no coincidence that of the eight players we saw, only two will have expected to be involved at the quarter-final stage. As a consequence, we got the frantic desperation of those seeking to seize an opportunity that may never come their way again, the ravenous rabidity of others looking to make a career-defining breakthrough – and an all-time great shaping his legacy by haranguing himself in the khazi.

The same is so of today. Tomljanovic and Garín, fine players both, may never reach this stage again; Rybakina is a monstrous talent seeking to announce herself to the world; with Fritz, Anisimova and Kyrgios lying somewhere in between. Then, if to that we add Nadal, probably and improbably halfway to a grand slam, and Halep, a former champion of fragile brilliance fighting back after injury, we have ourselves a flammable gumbo of everything that makes sport – and Wimbledon in particular – so thrillingly and ludicrously compelling.
