Indian Wells - Tuesday teems with titanic tussles

Ep. 1087

Can you tell we like alliteration? Catherine, David and Matt look back on a day of Last 16 action at Indian Wells. There’s chat about Iga Swiatek’s ruthlessness, an epic match between Petra Kvitova and Jessica Pegula, yet another three set victory for Maria Sakkari, Coco Gauff’s fighting spirit, how Daniil Medvedev survived an ankle roll to beat Alexander Zverev, the sparkling form of Cameron Norrie and Taylor Fritz, aggro between Stan Wawrinka and Holger Rune, and a late night win for Felix Auger-Aliassime over Tommy Paul.

Elsewhere, there's chat about Taylor Fritz's comeback from two sets down to beat Alexander Zverev, a big milestone for Alex de Minaur but also worry he's injured himself on match points, and praise for how Lorenzo Musetti's game is translating to grass.
