15 Number of consecutive wins that Russia's Andrey Rublev has notched. Where it stops nobody knows. The Russian was down a set and a break against David Goffin but he took over from there and won in four.

42 winners, 7 unforced Rafael Nadal turns in a plus-35 winners to unforced errors ratio against Pablo Carreno Busta on Day 6 and looks ready for his highly anticipated clash with Nick Kyrgios in the round of 16.

1-6 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova’s new career record against Karolina Pliskova. After six consecutive losses the Russian finally broke through to earn her first won over the Czech, and send the No.2 seed toppling out of the draw.

0 Number of selfies that Coco Gauff has taken with Rod Laver, but rumor has it that we’ll be getting one soon.

18 Number of victories that Rafael Nadal has notched against his fellow Spaniards. Boy is he ever hard on his compatriots.
