Hello, old friend. The rain makes Melbourne feels like Manchester this evening.
It’s a grey old evening and, with the drizzle forecast to last another few hours, it’ll be interesting to see if the roof stays closed on Rod Laver Arena.
That decision lies with the tournament referee.
If the roof is closed for the start of the semi-final between Coco Gauff and Aryna Sabalenka, then it will remain closed for the whole match.
You may remember the roof was also closed when Gauff beat Sabalenka in New York. Make what you will of that.
