With seemingly the whole of Wimbledon transfixed by the unfurling of Rafa Nadal’s epic fourth round clash with Gilles Muller, at least one person in the grounds was impervious to the excitement.

Sixth seed Milos Raonic was a little bemused when a journalist opened his post-match news conference with a request for some special insight.

“It’s a very important question. Who is going to win the Nadal-Muller match?” the reporter asked.

A puzzled Raonic replied with a simple “I don’t know”.

And when the journalist pushed his theme, asking Raonic what the score in the final set would be, the confused Canadian replied: “Do you want to be there watching instead of being in here, but you have an obligation?”

Raonic had good reason to be a little bewildered, having just come through an epic battle of his own, beating Alexander Zverev 4-6 7-5 4-6 7-5 6-1 to reach a quarter-final with Roger Federer.

Nadal was beaten 6-3 6-4 3-6 4-6 15-13 in a four hour 48 minute thriller.
