Not sure about Murray, but Djokovic under pressure here vs Nadal. Needs to step up; hope he can do.

Crowd all behind Nadal here, no idea why. Takes ages between points, grunts like an aroused porker, links to a particular Spanish “operation” in the past. At this rate looks like he’s gonna make the final though.
I think it’s time for some Turkey instead.

How does this tennis stuff work? Will it be over in 15mins when the football is supposed to start on this channel?
Yes, whoever is ahead on the scoreboard at the time takes the win, and then they head to the dressing room to stick the footy on.

Maybe because Nadal is a 13 (?) times winner there and an icon at the tournament.
Nadal and Federer are perceived as likable and classy sportsmen by the vast majority.

Whereas Djokovic is an anti-vaxxer who continuously causes controversy both on and off the court.

There is also the unfortunate truth for Djokovic, that he arrived on the scene a little late. By the time he became a beast, everyone was either team Nadal or team Federer, naturally a third player coming in and beating these guys with the biggest fan bases becomes the bad guy.
