1:47 am
tsitsipas taking it on one crucial point. the only break came in the second set and it would prove to be as decisive. the new greek sporting icon making it a debut in london to remember. if tsitsipas and medvedev are a glimpse into tennis' future, they still have to dethrone the old guard. remarkably nadal, novak djokovic and roger federer are the top three seeds in london — just as they were for the corresponding tournament 12 years ago. so before the event, we decided to sit them down with sally nugent — on a boat — on the river thames — as you do — to reflect on more than a decade of dominance. gentlemen, we are used to seeing you more at wimbledon rather than cruising on the river on a boat. this all looks very friendly. are you all friends? let me answer this

mentally tough is it to keep going? it's an individual sport? you would have to take the responsibility and really be able to sustain the wear and tear. andy murray. can you believe he is even back on the court and what is your message to him? what he showed everyone is his passion and love the game. after all the things that went to do. he is able to win again and to play that. i think very soon, he is in a strong message for the kids. pep guardiola might not have been happy with the match officials and the video assistant referee in their defeat to liverpool at the weekend but the man who is in charge of var in the premier league has given it a mark of seven out of 10 since it was introduced this season. despite debates about crowd experience, the time taken on decisions and its actual accuracy — neil swarbrick says he's satisfied

a load of laxatives, which was one bad thing on my way out here and i bought loads of sweets so i binged, and unfortunately, it's part of the battle in my head. there's more from her on the bbc sport website. just lastly — we've time to show you how one football club in argentina decided to open their revamped stadium. this is estudiantes in the capital buenos aires. now their nickname is el leon — which translates as they lion. so what did they do? hired a real life fire breathing one. wait. no. it's just augmented relality. quite the spectacle though — first, prowling on the rooftop and then onto the pitch. estudiantes last played at the stadium in august 2005, before it was closed down due to safety concerns. gone are the days of tickertape. more on the website, see you soon.

hello there. it's been a very unsettled start to november, even indeed before november, we've seen a lot of rainfall around. low pressure has been firmly in control and it has been quite cold as well. the rest of the week stays unsettled thanks to low pressure, it will be quite windy too and we will see some snow around as it will remain cold over the higher ground. low pressure firmly in control of our weather for tuesday, bringing fairly strong wind from the north—west with a lot of showers circulating around it. early on tuesday, it looks like most of the showers will be across parts of scotland and northern ireland, northern england, some wintriness over the high ground of scotland but further south, it should be dry with lengthy clear skies. that does not mean it won't turn quite chilly here. 1—3 degrees here with the showers, generally 11—5 degrees to start tuesday. so we start with sunshine
1:56 am
across the south, spreading areas, but bands of shower and long spells of rain spreading into south—eastern areas into the afternoon. and there will contine to be some wintriness over the high ground. it will feel cold with temperatures 7—8 degrees. out on the wind, it'll feel quite raw. low pressure pushes off into the north sea and allows a bump of high pressure to build in before wednesday before this next weather system moves in wednesday night into thursday. could bring some areas quite a lot of rainfall, unfortunately. through wednesday, though, could be a chilly start in central, eastern and northern areas but dry and bright thanks to that bump of high pressure. the next weather system will be arriving across northern ireland and wales and the south—west of england, bringing heavy rain here late in the day and it will be another chilly one, temperatures struggling to get up as much as 4 degrees across scotland. through wednesday night a few showers here and the weather front across the south—west will push northwards and eastwards, it'll pivot as well, we think. bit of uncertainty too,
1:57 am
its northwards or southwards extent but some areas could see quite a lot of rainfall it could be the flood—affected areas in the midlands and northern england could see quite a bit of rainfall. again, i have to emphasise some uncertainty on the position of the weather front. there are a number of flood warnings still in force and this rain could exacerbate that as well so stay tuned to the forecast and head onto the bbc weather website. into friday the weather front starts to fade and move southwards and eastwards. so it could be quite cloudy on friday across southern and eastern areas, one or two showers here, quite blustery. but further north and west, we will see a ridge of high pressure move in. it's an improving picture here with some good spells of sunshine. and temperatures again on the low side, sticking in single figures for most.
