6:50 pm
finals of the us up in a couple years back without a 29, may be her time to when a major had passed. her serviceman spot on and in all of what we do, it 1% of her points. but she has that elegance, the drop shots, finishing off the net and i think should just be able to get in the points and which is in the point, she'll make it in awkward places we are out of time ijust want we are out of time i just want to tell you before i handed back to you, that great results for great britain and we have seen gordon reed in the singles final and the defending champion and also winning the final of the men's doubles. came into this is the defending champion and lucy, they're going to face each other in the women's wheelchair doubles at the weekend and so there's plenty to keep british tennis fans occupied as well and
6:51 pm
looks as though we're going to get a men's final between novak novak djokovic and matteo berrettini. and we are hoping to see the winner of this. you can follow it live on the bbc news. you will see it later. let's bring you a story from the tour de france. mark cavendish was a a man out of form, out of contract and without a ride for this year's race. he was drafted in as a last minute replacement at dekerrnick quickstep. and today, he's followed up earlier wins on the tour, to equal eddy merckx's long time record for stage wins. drew savage has the story, and stand by for a thriller of a sprint finish. he thought he would never write another tour de france. but he never gave up and today, he got his reward. a gave up and today, he got his reward. , ., , gave up and today, he got his reward._ you i gave up and today, he got his i reward._ you could reward. made history! you could finally speak— reward. made history! you could finally speak the _ reward. made history! you could finally speak the name. - reward. made history! you could finally speak the name. when i reward. made history! you could finally speak the name. when a | reward. made history! you could l finally speak the name. when a its all—time greats of 46 years and four

days since he won his 34th tour de france stage. and now he was right up france stage. and now he was right up there. next to him and set the record books. his own career is the stuff of legends when he won his stage of 2008 in the current leader looking good in the electricity was going to be nine years old. all eyes are on the man in green. as a child, he dreamed of winning the tour de france if you follow that dream after a hard day of writing in the heat, when this big moment came, he had to dig deep but he delivered. he made his childhood dream come true, equalling the for 34th time. there could be more special stories to come in today stage victory could propel him to break the record if he
6:53 pm
can get through the mountains. i can get through the mountains. i think he's been doing that for two or three years now, he wasn't even originally selected for this years event. the teams are supposed to go, he was injured only a week or so before the tour and so they had them go on that last minute. there been some really good reasons why he shouldn't of been here but the comeback from to get into the team, to be victorious stage after stage is extraordinary. i don't think you would've expected it i don't think anyone expected that. i think he wrote himself off the last time i saw him in person was in mallorca at the beginning of last year that he thought it probably was the end because i'm probably not going to get back from this. but he said he is can you keep fighting because you just never know. find is can you keep fighting because you just never know.— just never know. and where the chances in _ just never know. and where the chances in breaking _ just never know. and where the chances in breaking the - just never know. and where the j chances in breaking the record? just never know. and where the i chances in breaking the record? you wouldn't want _ chances in breaking the record? ym. wouldn't want to bet against him.
6:54 pm
there are other sprint stages in the tour de france. there's stage 18 in the final stage of the tour in paris. he could win any of those and at the moment, he could think he's got a good chance. but the problem he has between now and then is that you've got to get through it within the time limit on each stage. and coming into the race little underprepared, i think that is probably been a bigger challenge than when he weather was last two stages if that's what it comes to. one of the tour lines bring you abandoned the race following several writers for falling down the ravine. tyson fury�*s third fight against deontay wilder has been postponed, after fury tested positive for coronavirus. they were due to meet in las vegas in two weeks' time. the clash is likely to be re—arranged for october. australian tennis player nick kyrgios has pulled out of the olympic games,
6:55 pm
after it was announced there'll be no fans allowed at any venues in tokyo. he said the thought of playing in front of empty stadiums just didn't sit right, although he stressed he hadn't made the decision lightly. and the olympic flame has arrived in tokyo — but the public was kept away from a very low—key ceremony. the decision to ban spectators from events in the capital, was made after tokyo was placed in a state of emergency. that'll run throughout the games which start in two weeks' time. well, that's it from me here — let's get the latest from that last men's semifinal at wimbledon — with chetan. he's getting on really well. it feels like that's the hardest decide to work on his championship taking on two sets to love. the third said, think about the match that of a chunk of had so far. check trooper
6:56 pm
in the first—round, they didn't really come close to him with his lefties serve and that one—handed backhand and the tenth see it remember, he has not been able to take the big points when he set them. the break points in particular industry in with something of this third set on centre court at the moment but it's hard. it looks like novak novak djokovic is going for the gordon slam in the olympic gourd if you can do it. it looks like you'll be playing matteo berrettini in the final but we have others in the women's final, plenty to look forward to and in the weekend, updated on what wood in the bbc tv and the website i'll head back to all the website i'll head back to ali foster was in st. george as part and of another huge moment on sunday for england
