6:32 pm
hello and welcome to sportsday. good evening. it's been a vintage us open, hasn't it? especially for british tennis fans — we've had british winners in the men's wheelchair doubles, mens doubles, mixed doubles, and of course, the women's singles — emma raducanu with that improbable run through qualifying, right through to the title. joe wilson has been reflecting on what is surely one of the biggest moments in british sport. emma raducanu! stand by for the most fearless exuberant execution of sporting ability you may ever witness. for emma raducanu, standard practice. there were two teenagers in the us open final, canadian leylah fernandez at the top of the screen. as early as the second game we saw intense rallies and we saw emma raducanu prevailing here.
6:33 pm
both players settled immediately to display a full range of their abilities. points were hard earned and skilfully won. nerves — no sign. two things were clear — we had a final worthy of the occasion and raducanu had the first set 6—4. she was broken early in the second set, broke back like that. now fernandez was struggling to hold her serve. did you see this shot coming? oh, my god! did we see any of this coming? 44 years of waiting, one hour 51 on court and one more serve. it is right to realise what this means for british tennis but also for world tennis. it was an outstanding match and an astounding champion. really, it's yours, it's all yours. we rest, recover and then we go again. that's what we do. i feel like i'm still very hungry and i've got a lot of
6:34 pm
aspects in my game that ifeel i can improve. if sport exists to uplift and to amaze, emma raducanu is already at the pinnacle. joe wilson, bbc news. you can barely believe it, can you? and other british players were making history too — gordon reid and alfie hewett have become the first men to win all four wheelchair slam double titles in the same year. they beat gustavo fernandez and shingo kunieda 6—2 6—1 in the us open final, whilejoe salisbury has become the first briton to win two doubles titles at a grand slam in the open era, after winning the mixed doubles title at the us open, a day after winning the men's doubles. salisbury and american partner desirae krawczyk beat mexico's giuliana 0lmos and el salvador�*s marcelo arevalo 7—5 6—2 at flushing meadows. it wasjust pure emotion, i guess. just joy and excitement. yeah, a bit of disbelief.
6:35 pm
but yeah, i walked away and said i wasn't really thinking anything, i was just enjoying the moment. and there could be more record breaking in new york later when novak djokovic takes on russia's danil medvedev in the men's final — aiming to become the first man in 52 years to complete the calendar grand slam. thejob is not done. excitement is there, motivation is there, without a doubt. probably more than ever. but i have one more to go. it is going to be a battle against another guy who has been in tremendous form, medvedev. he has won a lot of matches on hard court so far. he has already got a couple of grand slam finals behind him, so i think experience—wise it is different for him now. i am sure he is going to give it all to win it. max verstappen has been given a three—place grid penalty for the next grand prix after a dramatic crash between him and his championship
6:36 pm
rival lewis hamilton at the italian grand prix this afternoon. the pair collided, taking each other out of the race as they battle to top the drivers standings. instead daniel ricciardo won his first grand prix for three years as mclaren claimed the top two spots. jo currie reports. this season has been defined by lewis hamilton and max verstappen�*s rivalry. the collision between the two at silverstone injuly saw verstappen taken to hospital and hamilton accused of putting his life in danger. with neither willing to give an inch at monza, it happened again. that's what you get when you don't leave the space. the world champion was left with a sore neck from contact with the dutchman's tyre. without the protective halo above his head, the outcome doesn't bear thinking about. verstappen out of his car quickly, in no mood to check in on his rival before hamilton also emerged. another monumental moment in their battle for the championship which could go to the final race. their misfortune, though, is mclaren�*s good luck. without verstappen chasing him,

daniel ricciardo delivered his first win for three years, his team's first since 2012. start the celebrations for mclaren. ricciardo has done it. and thanks to britain's lando norris, theirfirst 1—2 for a decade. all talk, however, will be of that crash and how much worse it could have been. jo currie, bbc news. we'll find out later this evening which players will represent europe at the ryder cup in wisconsin in a couple of weeks' time. captain padraig harrington will name his full team. the final qualifying event — the bmw pga at wentworth — has just finished. american billy horschel won the tournament by one shot over the englishman laurie canter but the competition within the competition was all about ryder cup places. 0ur golf correspondent iain carterjoins me now from wentworth. switching minute by minute. so who picked up the final automatic spots? yet it is straight and the vagaries
6:38 pm
of the european qualification system that shane larry beat bernd wiesberger in the tournament yet bernd wiesberger was able to overtake shane lowry in the ryder cup standings so he has managed to sneak in at the last and get into the nine automatic qualifiers, lee westwood despite the closing 77 managed to retain his place and shane lowry, who did best of those three, dropped out of qualifying places so now has to rely on the captain padraig harrington for one of his three wild card selections. and we will find out who those are later this evening, shane lowry, justin rose, sergio garcia and ian poulter are waiting to see if they get a captains pick.— get a captains pick. what is your hunch? it's _ get a captains pick. what is your hunch? it's difficult _ get a captains pick. what is your hunch? it's difficult to _ get a captains pick. what is your hunch? it's difficult to say - get a captains pick. what is your hunch? it's difficult to say if- get a captains pick. what is your hunch? it's difficult to say if the | hunch? it's difficult to say if the needle has moved at all as a result of this week, justin rose finished strong here with a 65 to finish and
6:39 pm
a share of sixth place. is that enough to get him into the team is shane lowry going to have done enough to persuade padraig harrington that he a starting position and a rookie position in that european team, then you have the two legends in poulter and garcia. the smart money heading into this week was that poulter and garcia were nailed on so that would suggest a pick between rose and larry but things may have shifted in the four days at wentworth. ian carter, the four days at wentworth. ian carter. thank— the four days at wentworth. ian carter, thank you for bringing us up—to—date, we will speak to you at about 7:45pm when we should know more about what those captains pics should be. to football, where liverpool's unbeaten start to the premier league season has continued. they beat leeds 2—0 at elland road, mo salah with the opener — his 100th premier league goal. thiago had a goal disallowed
6:40 pm
but liverpool did get a second, fabinho with the finish. in it dowse, eventually. leeds then had pascal struijk sent off for a challenge on harvey elliott, who appeared to suffer a nasty injury and left the pitch on a stretcher. best wishes to him. the man advantage eventually told, sadio mane making it 3—0 in stoppage time. liverpool are third — level on points with leaders manchester united. leeds' wait for a first win this season goes on. in the wsl, reigning champions chelsea made up for their opening day loss with a 4—0 thrashing of everton. fran kirby opened the scoring before two goals from sam kerr gave the blues a 3—0 lead. beth england then rounded off the match after erin cuthbert�*s chance rebounded off the post. a second 4—0 defeat for everton but a massive improvement for emma hayes' side. i think we should have scored more goals. if you think about the balance of play, for us to come in at 1—0 at half—time was disappointing
6:41 pm
but i thought it was composed. i am delighted we kept a clean sheet and defended properly. going forward, we had plenty of options. the composure amongst the group is growing. and like i said, it's early days. elsewhere in the wsl, brighton are 4—0 up away at birmingham, manchester united beat leicester and arsenal beat reading 4—0. manchester city take on tottenham hotspur in the next few minutes. there was just one game in the scottish premiership today as hearts took on hibs in the edinburgh derby. either side could have gone top of the league with a win but instead played out a goalless draw. both sides maintain their unbeaten start to the season and remain level on points. let's move away from football.
6:42 pm
after three days in the leader's jersey, ethan hayter was denied overall victory on the final stage of the tour of britain. after more than four hours of racing, it culminated with a sprint finish in aberdeen. belgium's wout van aert won it to overturn a four second deficit to the briton who could only finish iith. and there was british success at the great north run today. britain's marc scott finished in one hour one minute and 22 seconds as he took the title previously won by mo farah. meanwhile, in the women's elite, kenya's hellen 0biri ran the fastest with eilish mccolgan close behind her in second. britain's sean frame won the men's wheelchair title for the first time with fellow briton and six—time winner shelly woods winning the women's title. congratulations to everyone who took on the great north run in newcastle this afternoon. that's all from sportsday. we'll have more
6:43 pm
throughout the evening. but now on bbc news, it's time for the film review. hello, and welcome to the film review on bbc news. look who's here! he's real — it's mark kermode really here in the studio, not an avatar! it is fabulous to be back in the studio with you, jane. how lovely to see you again. so, we have a packed show coming up. so, we've got reviews of the collini case, which is a german crime thriller. we have respect, which is the biopic of aretha franklin, withjennifer hudson. and we have herself, which is the new film by phyllida lloyd, which i think you and i have different opinions about. to be discussed.
6:44 pm
we start with the collini case. yes, so, german crime thriller, based on a book by ferdinand von schirach — which i confess i have not read, although it's apparently a very famous book. story is a young lawyer is assigned to a case in which he has to defend a man, fabricio collini — played by the great franco niro — who is accused of murder. the case seems fairly hopeless, not least because shortly after the murder, fabricio collini presented himself, covered in blood, and now refuses to speak in his own defence. here's a clip.
6:45 pm
hmm. so it then transpires that the lawyer actually knew the victim. in fact, the victim was something of a mentor to him, took him under his wing, you know, almost fathered him. the question is why on earth would anybody want to kill this man, who was a respected industrialist and, as far as the lawyer knows was somebody who was a very good person? the author of the book, his grandfather was a very high—ranking nazi who was tried at nuremberg and one of the things the book is about is coming to terms with, you know, the past and the ghosts of your own past and accepting the fact that people who seem like one thing may actually be something completely different, so a lot of the story is to do with confronting guilt. it's also a pretty good drama in terms of —
6:46 pm
it's a courtroom drama. now, i love a courtroom drama, i do understand that courtroom
