After the observe week in Switzerland (for which Federer is known to have footed the invoice) Evans was requested what had stunned him in regards to the nice man.

"I'd rather not be playing him. I have to go about my business and hopefully beat him". Konta on the other hand sent out a warning to her fellow competitors following a 6-1, 6-0 thrashing win over Margarita Gasparyan in a match that last just under an hour.

Police say they entered the station to arrest offenders after it was believed protesters assaulted others and damaged property. Some passengers were forced to walk the last bit of their journey to the airport by foot, dragging luggage behind them.
