This week, we bring you a chat that was recorded literally during the quarterfinals of the Sony Open combined event in Miami. Delpo is out of action until further notice after successful wrist surgery, Lendl is no longer coaching Murray, but still seems to be 'in his corner'.

Bernard Tomic has just broken a record for speediest loss ever in ATP history, after playing Jarko Nieminen in the first round. We discuss that in context of Lleyton Hewitt's achievement the very same day of reaching 600 career wins, which is second only to Nadal and Federer amongst active players.

Casey Dellacqua continues to acquit herself well against the world's best at the highest level, and Matt tells me a little about how he tracks not just WTA and ATP rankings, but the provisional rankings as well, and we mention the websites that can give you that info.

RUNNING ORDER: 

7:50 Bad news bears. Murray, Tomic, Delpo, Monfils.

22:40 Good news Casey, and how Matt tracks provisional rankings.

32:00 Lleyton's 600 achievement.

35:00 Nishikori/Federer as it's happening (as we record). Federer's resurgence.

37:00 Women's quarters and semis. Matt and I agree to disagree.
