News of Murray's father-in-law Nigel Sears - Sears collapsed while watching his charge Ana Ivanovic play Madison Keys over on Rod Laver but is apparently sitting up in hospital and undergoing tests. We wish him well. The latest score in that match is 5-3 to Keys in the deciding set, the American has won five games in a row. And with that, I will say good night or good morning or whatever it is where you are.
