On that evidence, those inside Laver who thought the second set would be a formality could have been forgiven.

You can still like Gillian Anderson, even if she makes a great Thatcher

Today 20:00 GMT

The apparent issue is that Anderson is too hot to play Thatcher, and her beauty will humanise the reviled politician while making Anderson herself less likable.

The likelihood of him instructing Anderson to play Thatcher as an aspirational #girlboss seems as unlikely as the highbrow actor agreeing to do so.

Sterling and Sané ensure Manchester City cruise to victory at Huddersfield

Today 14:29 GMT

He was in the six-yard area at the time but still managed to put the ball wide and, at the final whistle, the supporters here must have wondered how long they might have to wait before City visit this place again.

Guardiola, one imagines, had a thing or two to say about it at half-time and City quickly put that right with the goals from Sterling and Leroy Sané in the 54th and 56th minutes. Early on, City had looked like a side in a hurry and Huddersfield were looking hassled even before that moment, 17 minutes in, when Danilo took aim from 20 yards and Christopher Schindler inadvertently diverted the shot into his own net.
