Welcome back to the Olympic park where there are thousands of people

:00:31.:00:34.

milling behind me because this is the first main day of competition

:00:34.:00:39.

with all the venues being used here but the big story of the day

:00:39.:00:49.
:00:49.:00:53.

happened at on the road and I'm the first gold medal of these

:00:53.:01:00.

Olympics ended in disappointment. Kazakhstan's Alexandre Vinokourov

:01:01.:01:06.

took the gold medal 40 seconds ahead of Mark Cavendish. China won

:01:06.:01:15.

the first gold for shooting. She added to the world title. Gold for

:01:15.:01:21.

Brazil in the judo. A serum and then there's been the final. The

:01:21.:01:25.

women's extra lightweight competition. -- Sarah Mendez. The

:01:25.:01:32.

men's gold went to Russia who defeated the man who beat Ashley

:01:32.:01:41.

McKenzie in the early round. So what have we got coming up? The

:01:41.:01:46.

men's beach volleyball, Great Britain against Canada. Archery,

:01:46.:01:52.

the men's final. That is at 6 o'clock. And the sailing get under

:01:52.:02:01.

way at 6:30pm and we will go to That's what we have got coming up.

:02:01.:02:07.

Before we went to the news we were live at Wimbledon with Roger

:02:07.:02:13.

Federer car. Federer was on Centre Court and we left it at two-two in

:02:13.:02:18.

the third and final set and we can tell you Roger Federer raced away

:02:18.:02:21.

with it and this is how he finished with it and this is how he finished

:02:21.:02:30.

Wimbledon title three weeks ago. His dream is to win the gold medal

:02:30.:02:36.

at Wimbledon. His twins are here cheering him on from the stands

:02:36.:02:40.

with his wife, but a terrific performance from Roger. He dropped

:02:40.:02:44.

the second set but is through against a very dangerous opponent.

:02:44.:02:51.

The Centre Court is absolutely loving it and they love him. A we

:02:51.:02:56.

will have more tennis later on but for us now it is beach volleyball.

:02:56.:03:00.

A sport which has enjoyed increased popularity since it was introduced

:03:00.:03:04.

in Atlanta at 16 years ago it. If you're not familiar with how it

:03:04.:03:12.

works, listen closely. Beach volleyball, the height of the net

:03:12.:03:17.

varies between the men's and women's game. 2.43 metres, at 2.24

:03:17.:03:22.

metres respectively. The size of the court stays the same.

:03:22.:03:29.

Surrounded by a free zone of a maximum six metres. The ball is

:03:29.:03:35.

approximately one third lighter than a football. Teams of two

:03:35.:03:38.

players compete in matches which of the best-of-three sets up. The

:03:38.:03:48.
:03:48.:03:54.

first two are played to 21 points. stage advance to the knockout phase,

culminating in the gold medal match. If you'd like to get involved in

:04:10.:04:15.

to Horse Guards Parade, one of the iconic sporting venues at these

:04:15.:04:20.

Games. Down the river, under Tower Bridge. Speeding along the River

:04:20.:04:26.

Thames and then just by the London Eye, a quick ride and over we go to

:04:26.:04:31.

Horse Guards Parade. Boy, doesn't that looked different? About 15,000

:04:31.:04:38.

people around it. This has been one of the most popular spectator sport

:04:38.:04:44.

since 1996. For many reasons. Today, the men are in action and we can

:04:44.:04:49.

see how the British duo got on in their opening group match against

:04:49.:04:58.

Canada. We can join at life towards the end of the first set. Let's

:04:58.:05:08.
:05:08.:05:13.

court after the time out. 17-15 per to Canada. The rebound of the net.

:05:13.:05:22.

A big smash. But it was out. John Garcia Thompson have clawed back

:05:22.:05:29.

one of those precious points. The Olympic debut for beach volleyball

:05:29.:05:39.
:05:39.:05:49.

for Great Britain. John Garcia he could not make it. Garcia

:05:49.:05:53.

Thompson has done some sterling work at the back there. As you can

:05:53.:06:03.
:06:03.:06:19.

see, perfectly positioned from the much gentler controlled stroke in

:06:19.:06:26.

this set and has opted to add some power into that's bike. -- that

:06:26.:06:32.

Spike. So, the British keeping that deficit to just two points over the

:06:32.:06:38.

last 10. They need a really big push here. That will hold the

:06:38.:06:48.
:06:48.:07:00.

Canadians. They are very, very Great Britain draw level -- no, not

:07:00.:07:09.

enough juice behind it. Getting some sand out of his glasses there.

:07:09.:07:15.

He used the jumps serve up for the very first time. He has been very

:07:15.:07:19.

ecstatic with is serving throughout this set, and now opting for

:07:19.:07:24.

something more powerful towards the business end. Taking the inertia

:07:24.:07:30.

out of that survey. Garcia Thompson was down early. A little bit of

:07:30.:07:37.

confusion on the defence. It is absolutely critical you have good

:07:37.:07:44.

communication on those blocks. The person at the Net needs to take the

:07:44.:07:47.

liner or the cross-shot, and the defender behind them, is clearing

:07:48.:07:57.
:07:58.:07:59.

up that lesser option. So both players down with a bump. A joust

:07:59.:08:03.

at the net. Fantastic work. Simultaneously touching the ball.

:08:03.:08:08.

You have got to touch that as long as possible but not let your hand

:08:08.:08:14.

touched the net. They hit it together. The ball dropped into the

:08:14.:08:20.

sand on the Canadian side. They are now level at 19-19. John Garcia

:08:20.:08:30.
:08:30.:08:41.

powerful spike just when they needed it. So, we have a side out.

:08:41.:08:51.

These serve goes to the Canadians. We haven't seen any set tactics

:08:51.:08:54.

from the Canadian said. There has been no physical weakness from the

:08:54.:09:04.
:09:04.:09:27.

by the British team. Fantastic rally, the best of the match so far.

:09:27.:09:37.
:09:37.:09:46.

fantastic rally to finish that set off. Very, very unlucky for the

:09:46.:09:52.

British team. The Canadians doing fantastically well. I think that

:09:52.:09:56.

final point summed up at set for both the Canadians and the British.

:09:56.:10:06.
:10:06.:10:23.

and coming in here, both teams had seen mixed fortunes in the build-up

:10:23.:10:27.

to this event. The British team is ranked 50th. The Canadians, coming

:10:27.:10:37.

into this, around the 40 mark. I don't know exactly. It will be

:10:37.:10:43.

interesting to see what tactics they adopt for the second set. Lots

:10:43.:10:53.
:10:53.:10:58.

defensive work. Garcia Thompson and his partner both going forward

:10:58.:11:08.
:11:08.:11:26.

Reeder. Two main attackers for each team. On court, Garcia Thomson to

:11:26.:11:36.
:11:36.:12:04.

first set opens with a Canadian Plenty of space to the left. Great

:12:04.:12:14.
:12:14.:12:28.

jump again. Unforced errors like that, in such a tight game are not

:12:28.:12:38.
:12:38.:12:43.

going to be the deciders, I fear. went down. He made a late decision

:12:43.:12:50.

to play that, by the looks of it. Very well played serve. Garcia

:12:50.:12:57.

Thomson was down late. He could have left it, potentially.

:12:57.:13:01.

Potentially he's wondering why he did not get a call when it was

:13:01.:13:09.

going out. Oh, but his dreadful luck! It is an ace serve. Not until

:13:09.:13:16.

a couple of years ago was that rule changed. The ball coming of the net

:13:16.:13:26.
:13:26.:13:27.

will count if it lands in. Canada, 4-1 up in this set. Garcia Thomson

:13:27.:13:31.

did not quite get the contact he wanted on that. He gets the ball

:13:31.:13:41.
:13:41.:13:47.

over. Reeder was looking for a way round the umpire. As long as it

:13:47.:13:57.
:13:57.:14:06.

passes the and 10 on the Net, it's line. Just over the top. Great play

:14:06.:14:12.

from Garcia Thomson. He's trying to find his position again. He did

:14:12.:14:19.

well to work his way back to the centre of the court. But it was red,

:14:19.:14:24.

and he sent the ball down to his left leg after he was running to

:14:24.:14:33.

the right, and he could not alter his momentum and time. Canada, 5-2.

:14:33.:14:41.

7 points in it, so we have changed sides. One of the key attributes of

:14:41.:14:45.

beach volleyball is footwork. You are working with such a soft

:14:45.:14:55.
:14:55.:14:56.

surface. Great point. It has gone, the's way. It was out. The British

:14:57.:15:02.

look pretty certain it was in. How you set up, how you create momentum,

:15:02.:15:08.

and how you get your jumper. The sand will soak up all of your

:15:08.:15:18.
:15:18.:15:23.

After a tidy set, we are seeing unforced errors. They have let a

:15:23.:15:27.

couple of them past the guard, but you cannot underestimate the power

:15:27.:15:33.

of the service. The fastest of which from the Canadians has

:15:33.:15:43.
:15:43.:15:50.

measured out 76 kilometres per hour, 36 attempts from Great Britain, but

:15:50.:15:58.

just 31 from the Canadians. In terms of statistics, the British

:15:58.:16:04.

team are not struggling to create chances. But the Canadian defence

:16:04.:16:14.
:16:14.:16:29.

appears to be equal to them at this part in the first match. All four

:16:29.:16:39.
:16:39.:16:42.

players on court are Olympic sense of occasion. The Time Out has

:16:43.:16:45.

sense of occasion. The Time Out has had a fantastic effect then. It has

:16:45.:16:51.

slowed the momentum of the Canadians and bolstered the British.

:16:51.:17:01.
:17:01.:17:12.

Great jump, kept his eye on the well. Garcia-Thomson was behind him,

:17:12.:17:18.

and that left there wide part of the court opened. The Canadians 8-3

:17:18.:17:26.

up in the second set. If the British team won to push this on to

:17:26.:17:30.

the three sets they need to start working now. Reader with the big

:17:30.:17:36.

jumping serve. Garcia-Thomson does well. Smashing it over Reader. He

:17:36.:17:45.

gets a capital -- he gets an arm to it. Confusion between the Canadians,

:17:45.:17:49.

both going do the same ball. Nine times out of 10 that is a critical

:17:49.:17:59.
:17:59.:18:26.

placement. 9-4 in favour of the I would say that is going where he

:18:26.:18:36.
:18:36.:18:39.

is. Fantastic work. Garcia-Thomson but a fantastic bit of placement at

:18:39.:18:49.
:18:49.:18:49.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 64 seconds

:18:49.:19:54.

couple of Serbs. -- serves. Reader aligning it out. 11-five in favour

:19:54.:20:04.
:20:04.:20:11.

of Canada. Oh lovely spike. unleashing it on to the Canadian

:20:11.:20:21.
:20:21.:20:36.

side of the court -- that hand to look like the British got caught

:20:36.:20:41.

flat-footed, both in the centre of the court. Man - but it looked like.

:20:41.:20:45.

A hard place to defend because if you are shutting down the line and

:20:45.:20:49.

someone is attack and the middle of the court it leaves an awful lot

:20:49.:20:59.
:20:59.:21:02.

for the defender of the back to second umpire and saying that the

:21:02.:21:12.
:21:12.:21:12.

Canadians had touched the net. The teams are tapping her -- hands.

:21:12.:21:22.
:21:22.:21:31.

Making sure there are no hard minute, and he gets the final touch.

:21:31.:21:40.

Was it a touch of the net? Yes. A net touch from Garcia-Thomson means

:21:40.:21:47.

it is a Canadian point. 14-6 to the Canadians, having pushed the

:21:47.:21:50.

Canadians 0.4 point in the first set they have dropped away in the

:21:50.:21:56.

second. They really need to start a move in the next couple of points

:21:56.:22:01.

if they are to salvage this. A great call from Steve. He lets that

:22:01.:22:11.
:22:11.:22:19.

take the technical time out for one minute at this stage. They had some

:22:19.:22:24.

fantastic defensive work and attacking work in the first set.

:22:24.:22:27.

They just seem to have lost their edge in the second set. Haven't

:22:27.:22:35.

quite had the same impact. A couple of unforced errors can stop and

:22:35.:22:42.

some great attacking work -- a couple of unforced errors and some

:22:42.:22:49.

great attacking work. But plenty of life in this set yet. Plenty of

:22:49.:22:55.

time for them to push this one. We saw some huge comebacks from nearly

:22:55.:23:05.
:23:05.:23:36.

incredible. So much height and power. Reader, and a fantastic

:23:36.:23:43.

block from Garcia. Somehow they kept it in and manages to look big

:23:43.:23:48.

back in. The Canadians structuring the attack. Garcia Thomson down so

:23:48.:23:53.

quickly but the ball was fired into his left. Nothing he could do.

:23:53.:23:59.

Great defensive work from the British. But when you have both

:23:59.:24:03.

committed so heavily to saving a ball like that, especially when you

:24:03.:24:09.

give such a high ball in return, you give the opposing team a lot of

:24:09.:24:12.

time to construct an attack. That is exactly what the Canadians did,

:24:12.:24:22.
:24:22.:24:59.

underneath it. He got down to it. The Canadians but in yet another.

:24:59.:25:04.

On the board. The 10 point lead, and a huge advantage in beach

:25:04.:25:12.

volleyball, especially at this end of the second set. Only three

:25:12.:25:18.

points to start calling in at the lead. The British with a lot of

:25:18.:25:28.
:25:28.:25:57.

and a deflection pushed it up and in at unevenly or left the hands

:25:57.:26:04.

unevenly. Very tight rules on the set in beach volleyball. Just

:26:04.:26:09.

getting double contact on the ball, so immediately it is a British

:26:09.:26:15.

point. Sending the ball long. Dipping down. Only missing the line

:26:15.:26:20.

by couple of feet. Now the Canadians are nine points clear,

:26:20.:26:30.
:26:30.:26:40.

reached match point. Two line box is the call from Riga. -- blocks. A

:26:40.:26:50.
:26:50.:27:03.

great spike. Both umpires give it lift the British team. We had heard

:27:03.:27:08.

so much about the home advantage and that has certainly played a big

:27:08.:27:15.

role in the first set. Let's hope it is not too late for them to

:27:15.:27:25.
:27:25.:27:42.

rally in the second. Fantastic Martin Reader holding the ball out.

:27:42.:27:49.

The big jump serve the key powers in. It comes off the net. Spiking

:27:49.:27:54.

into space. Beautiful work. Very well controlled. They considered

:27:54.:28:04.
:28:04.:28:13.

attack. That keeps Great Britain in here. The serve clipped the net and

:28:13.:28:20.

Reader sets it. Not enough. It goes wide. And the British make-up

:28:20.:28:30.
:28:30.:28:41.

another point. Nail-biting stuff measured Spike into the space. On

:28:41.:28:45.

to the right hand side. He was taking the block but he still

:28:45.:28:55.
:28:55.:29:19.

managed to find space down the line. Huge awareness there. Once he had

:29:19.:29:24.

put the set up, he looks down, judged where they were and then

:29:24.:29:34.
:29:34.:29:38.

Peeling away. Looking for the block. Reading gets on to it. And he finds

:29:38.:29:48.

the space between them, and that is it, in two sets, the Canadians have

:29:48.:29:53.

won against Great Britain. But a fantastic game. The first set was

:29:53.:29:57.

so close, and the final point of the first set undoubtedly the

:29:57.:30:07.
:30:07.:30:15.

highlight of the match. Great Martin Reader and Josh Binstock who

:30:15.:30:25.
:30:25.:30:31.

take on their first ever Olympic very enjoyable game. Both teams

:30:31.:30:36.

working hard. Some fantastic defensive work. Neither committing

:30:36.:30:41.

too heavily to the Net, so we had an awful lot of open play. And, for

:30:41.:30:46.

me, Garcia Thompson was a stand out with some outstanding play. He got

:30:47.:30:55.

down low and quickly. Some big plays by Martin Reader, there. But,

:30:55.:30:59.

in most cases, John Garcia Thompson was equal to those. The British

:30:59.:31:04.

team struggling to keep pace in that second set, but a lot of

:31:04.:31:07.

encouraging signs for them in the first ever beach volleyball match

:31:07.:31:16.

SUE BARKER: What an atmosphere at Horse Guards Parade and it's not

:31:16.:31:20.

over for the British pair because that was a group match that they

:31:20.:31:24.

have got two more matches to come. They will be back on Monday. We

:31:24.:31:28.

will be heading to table tennis in just a moment. First, let's tell

:31:28.:31:33.

you what's happening on BBC Three. It is women's football. Team GB are

:31:33.:31:38.

looking to follow up on their victory against New Zealand earlier.

:31:38.:31:44.

They are playing at Cameroon at the Millennium Stadium. Over on the red

:31:44.:31:48.

button, plenty of options including the tennis, where an Keothavong

:31:48.:31:54.

from Great Britain is up against Caroline was the key on second

:31:54.:32:01.

These Games are all about leaving a legacy and encouraging youngsters

:32:01.:32:08.

to take up sport. We have asked many famous names to share how and

:32:08.:32:13.

why they got started. We begin with our table tennis commentator,

:32:13.:32:17.

Matthew Syed, who was three-times Commonwealth champion and twice an

:32:17.:32:27.
:32:27.:32:36.

My parents decide to buy a table- tennis table and it was so big, we

:32:36.:32:40.

didn't have far to run back from the table because it was very

:32:40.:32:47.

enclosed, rather cramped space. The angles, the spinners, the hidden

:32:47.:32:52.

subtleties, we were unaware of when we started playing, but we fell in

:32:52.:32:56.

love with it. Within a few weeks of pain, we beat my dad and eventually

:32:56.:33:01.

we beat him very consistently. That was the first experience we had of

:33:02.:33:08.

table tennis. The key influence in our table tennis career was Peter

:33:09.:33:13.

Chatteris, a teacher at the local primary school, who ran the table

:33:13.:33:23.
:33:23.:33:25.

tennis club. It was satisfaction. The players had ambition. They

:33:25.:33:35.

really want to reach the top. is a video of us playing. 1980s.

:33:35.:33:40.

Your technique on the forehand and backhand is almost textbook.

:33:40.:33:46.

with a defensive player. One table in what was essentially a wooden

:33:46.:33:50.

shack, but what was absolutely vital, it was open 24 hours a day,

:33:50.:33:55.

just for table tennis. At his peak, Matthew would not play close to the

:33:55.:33:59.

table like this. He was, the best defenders in the world. All of us,

:34:00.:34:03.

young people had a set of keys. We would play in the morning, go to

:34:03.:34:07.

the chip shop and have lunch, get some sweets, go back to the club

:34:07.:34:11.

and player or afternoon and then my parents would come in the late

:34:11.:34:14.

afternoon and pick us up. Subconsciously, without realising

:34:14.:34:20.

it, we were courting a purposeful practice which was converting us

:34:20.:34:30.
:34:30.:34:31.

into extraordinary players. I would I would be there. And then come in

:34:31.:34:35.

and make a smash a winner like that. My first Olympics was 1992,

:34:35.:34:40.

Barcelona, and I did well, and it felt like the most uplifting

:34:40.:34:46.

sporting competition I'd ever played in. I was more professional

:34:46.:34:50.

in my approach for Sydney. This was really the opportunity, far more

:34:50.:34:56.

than Barcelona, to try to win a medal. And, to my utter surprise, I

:34:56.:35:06.
:35:06.:35:13.

I knew I was choking while it was happening and when I sat there

:35:13.:35:19.

afterwards, my coach put his arm around me and said, you just had a

:35:19.:35:28.

meltdown and these things If you would like to get involved

:35:38.:35:39.

Matthew describing the other more painful side of sport. There's no

Chinese coach. A great deal of his temperament has been constructed by

:38:32.:38:32.

this very wise coach. A top player from the Gulf, Alhasan, he has

:38:32.:38:39.

given a very credible performance so far today. He's just lost one of

:38:39.:38:44.

those climactic key moments at the end of the opening few Games. One

damage in this contest? I certainly feel he has the ability. I think

perhaps, if I look over the period of the last four years, perhaps he

combination. Their best could be yet to come. This lovely Yorkshire

he could. It was a mistake free test. We did not have any blunders.

:48:13.:48:17.

I have to be delighted with how he tried for me, and I think he did

:48:17.:48:22.

the best he could have done today. He gave a solid performance, I felt.

:48:22.:48:27.

Got a little excited on the last halt but it's lovely to have the

captain Michael Vaughan looks back at the history of a ground that

I remember when I first played here, walking through the Long Room, out

:53:04.:53:10.

of the pavilion, my legs shaking. I was incomplete or of the

:53:10.:53:14.

surroundings. The atmosphere of the ground, its history and all of the

:53:14.:53:19.

great players who had gone before me -- I was in complete off. This

:53:19.:53:23.

is the spiritual home of cricket, where every batsman and bowler

:53:42.:53:47.

How fitting that this great cricket ground, which is almost 200 years

:53:47.:53:52.

old, plays a part in the London Olympics. It was not a difficult

:53:52.:53:58.

:54:22.:54:29.

bought up the land and build a new ground. This ground was built in

:54:29.:54:33.

1814, and the pavilion has been there since 1890, the third built

:54:33.:54:38.

on this ground. The first was burned down in 1825 which destroyed

:54:38.:54:42.

-- destroyed of the club records. The other one was destroyed in the

:54:42.:54:47.

end of the 1880s because it was not big enough. A rich history, but not

:54:47.:54:52.

always a proud history. In 1999 the MCC granted female membership but

:54:52.:54:55.

up to that point women were not even permitted to enter the Long

:54:55.:55:03.

Room or any part of the pavilion. It is not a big thing now. Everyone

:55:03.:55:07.

is very comfortable with it. Since then the MCC have made a huge

effort to advance women's cricket with a very vibrant women's plane

allowing sheep to graze on the grass. Things are a bit different

:55:27.:55:30.

today. The groundstaff worked tirelessly to keep the pitch and

the outfield in pristine condition. Everybody is worried about the

:55:34.:55:38.

hallowed turf, but we will not touch it. Nobody will be walking on

it, no equipment will be there. The groundsmen will have daily access

:55:43.:55:47.

to nurse it ready for the cricket season after the Olympics is over.

:55:47.:55:55.

We are working very closely with the MCC and ensuring that we give

back aground in pristine condition. They this is not the first time the

:55:58.:56:03.

Lords has played host of other sports. It has already proved its

:56:03.:56:09.

adaptability. There was a famous gave a baseball in 1970 between the

:56:09.:56:14.

Canadian and American teams. In the 1830s and 40s part of the ground

:56:14.:56:19.

was set aside for archery, but we do not know if it was actually used.

:56:19.:56:23.

Lord's has witnessed a lot of change over 200 years. Cricketing

:56:23.:56:27.

greats have come and gone and now it is the turn of the world's best

:56:27.:56:32.

archers. It is the latest chapter in this grounds rich history that

:56:32.:56:37.

we will be about to see Britain. That is how we normally looks, but

:56:37.:56:42.

this is it today. The home of cricket is now way home to archery

:56:42.:56:48.

and 5,000 spectators are at Lord's to enjoy the action. To date is the

:56:48.:56:53.

men's team competition, so let's join our reporter. First of all,

:56:53.:56:58.

Great Britain's men went out to Ukraine earlier. Was that a match

:56:58.:57:04.

they should have one? On paper, due to the ranking rounds, he was the

:57:04.:57:07.

closest match they could have had but Great Britain knew it would be

:57:07.:57:11.

a tough match. The Ukrainian team has the defending individual

:57:11.:57:16.

champion and in their last four meetings Great Britain have never

:57:16.:57:19.

overpowered Ukraine and this morning was no different. They were

:57:19.:57:24.

too strong and the left the men's team out in the first round for the

:57:24.:57:30.

home Olympics -- eat left the men's team. As far as the men are

:57:30.:57:34.

concerned it is not over. Larry Godfry qualified well in the

:57:34.:57:38.

individual event yesterday. Yes, certainly not all over. The three

:57:38.:57:42.

guys have to concentrate on individual competition and Larry

:57:42.:57:46.

Godfrey showed why before the Olympics that he said he was in the

:57:46.:57:51.

form of his life. On Friday he shot just one point short of the British

:57:51.:57:56.

record and was the highest scorer apart from the three competitors

:57:56.:58:00.

from South Korea. He has been seeded in number four and is in the

:58:00.:58:05.

form of his life. You mention the South Koreans. They have won the

:58:05.:58:09.

last three Olympics, but they are not in the final? It has been very

:58:09.:58:14.

dramatic. They have just won the bronze medal but they were knocked

:58:14.:58:19.

out of being able to weave and defend their title by the USA, who

:58:19.:58:23.

are actually the number-one ranked team in the world. South Korea

:58:23.:58:27.

really were the team to beat. They are such a strong nation in archery.

:58:27.:58:31.

Defending champions, world champions, world record breakers.

:58:31.:58:34.

The strength in depth in the team is so strong that the world

:58:34.:58:39.

champion didn't even make that team, some a real shock. But now the

:58:39.:58:47.

final is USA versus Italy. wasn't the world record holder part

:58:47.:58:53.

of the team? He just didn't make it. Did not make it through the trials.

:58:53.:58:58.

Maybe they are regretting it now. So what can we expect from the

:58:58.:59:03.

final? We know the USA won an Olympic gold in 1996 and it has

:59:03.:59:08.

been a long time since they have come for the gold again. Yes, they

:59:08.:59:12.

won it in 1996 and that is the last time anyone had beaten South Korea,

:59:12.:59:17.

so they did it at the semi-final stage. They are due to meet Italy.

:59:17.:59:20.

It is pretty evenly matched in the meetings but they haven't met that

:59:20.:59:25.

recently. Italy got a silver medal in Beijing and are not really in

:59:25.:59:30.

that kind of form like four years ago. The USA have spent a lot of

:59:30.:59:35.

time and energy and a great deal of money in archery. They are taking

:59:35.:59:39.

it very seriously. Really, everybody would bet on the USA

:59:40.:59:43.

winning this match. And actually they have just come out onto the

:59:43.:59:53.
:59:53.:59:56.

field of play. That is my cue to So, let's join our commentators at

:59:56.:00:06.
:00:06.:00:12.

EDDIE BUTLER: Italy have got here the hard way, coming from the lower

:00:12.:00:19.

end of the ranking system, having to play an extra game. They have a

:00:19.:00:22.

former Olympic champion in their midst, in the middle there, Marco

:00:22.:00:28.

Galiazzo. The United States of America were so good yesterday in

:00:28.:00:32.

the ranking round, that they did not have to qualify for the

:00:32.:00:37.

quarter-finals, they went straight quarter-finals, they went straight

:00:37.:00:47.

quarter-finals, they went straight there. They beat China in the first

:00:47.:00:52.

round, which set up a semi-final against Korea, and it really was

:00:52.:00:55.

one of the most gripping archery matches that we have witnessed at

:00:55.:01:03.

the Olympics. But the USA came through, they managed to overhaul

:01:03.:01:07.

Korea, who had a mini collapse just when it mattered. Italy have not

:01:07.:01:09.

when it mattered. Italy have not been quite so dramatic, but they

:01:09.:01:18.

have also had to come from behind. America retain their starting order,

:01:18.:01:25.

so it is going to be Jake Kaminski to start. The first of 24 arrows.

:01:25.:01:32.

Divided into four ends. That's a steady nine, and the crowd have

:01:32.:01:39.

rediscovered their appetite for the nine. There was a stage when only

:01:39.:01:49.
:01:49.:01:50.

10s raised a roar. The USA will be thrilled to be in this final. It is

:01:50.:01:59.

their first medal for 10 years, this will be. Now, Brady Ellison,

:01:59.:02:02.

ranked number 1 in the world, the American team ranked number 1 in

:02:02.:02:12.
:02:12.:02:13.

the world. They have been training together, living together, eating

:02:13.:02:18.

seconds... They like to go close to the clock. It is all part of the

:04:18.:04:20.

adrenalin rush. They will be disappointed with that start, those

have seemed to adopt the stony- faced method. Italy tend to go for

:06:24.:06:31.

the high fives and the hollow ring. Mexico, very chirpy! America, they

:06:31.:06:41.
:06:41.:06:47.

The second end... No changes. America have not experimented with

:06:47.:06:55.

a different order. Nor have Italy. Korea did, and it went wrong.

:06:55.:07:00.

very unusual to change the order of your archers at this stage of the

This is when your experience comes into play. They have got five

happens, you can often miss. After that, comes a 10 from Brady Ellison,

the number one archer in the world. Not in the best form of his life

:10:12.:10:12.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 64 seconds

Italy, at halfway, have a four- point lead. This is the same team

:11:09.:11:15.

are no unusual faces joining in. That must be reassuring, they know

:11:15.:11:22.

what it is about. There is a chance that the United States might be an

:11:22.:11:25.

exhausted team. They have been on the road, going around the world,

:11:25.:11:31.

like no other team. Absolutely, Italy have done 17 matches on the

:11:31.:11:36.

world stage, compared to 29 by the USA. They have barely been home,

:11:36.:11:42.

surely?! But of course, the reason why they have done that is because

:11:42.:11:47.

in 2008, at the Beijing Olympics, Brady Ellison came back and said, I

:11:47.:11:52.

just was not ready to win a medal, what do I need to do? I want to be

:11:52.:11:55.

known as the best archer who has ever walked on this planet. They

said, you have just got to get more international experience and start

:12:05.:12:11.

That is a great question to ask, isn't it? How can I be better? Well,

:12:11.:12:16.

they are trailing at the halfway point. It is the first time that

:12:16.:12:23.

the team event has come before the individual event. All over in one

:12:23.:12:27.

individual event. All over in one day. This, the first day, and these

:12:28.:12:32.

are the first medals. This is what they do, they crank it up, the

:12:32.:12:42.
:12:42.:12:57.

:14:12.:14:22.
:14:22.:14:22.

see them at Rio. Meanwhile, in London, Michele Frangilli, with a

:14:32.:14:56.

Jake Kaminski seems to be in the The American team have sacrificed

:14:56.:15:00.

an awful lot to be here, staying away from their families for weeks

The loneliness is bringing out the best of them. This to end their

Normally, Nespoli takes his position behind Galiazzo. Starts

quietly, encouraging the others. Now, if there is a clock issue,

:16:10.:16:25.

there is Nespoli, behind Frangilli, The deficit is cut. Just one end to

go. Six arrows for each team. We had tension in the semi-final, and

:16:30.:16:35.

it looks as though the final will go to the wire as well. They will

:16:35.:16:38.

have to start giving Frangilli extra time to get his last hour

:16:38.:16:42.

away. It is an enormous amount of pressure in the final of the

:16:42.:16:46.

Olympic Games. You have five seconds to shoot your arrow from

:16:46.:16:52.

full draw. Particularly with Frangilli's style, he does take his

:16:52.:16:58.

time and needs time to execute his shot confidently. The high arc of

the arrow, winging its way 70 metres from just in front of the

:17:04.:17:12.

pavilion at Lord's, over the Square and into the target. It goes down

:17:12.:17:16.

most of the way through the tunnel formed by the stance, and then

:17:16.:17:23.

there is an open zone where the wind can kick in. You can see the

:17:23.:17:33.
:17:33.:17:34.

flags. Beyond the stand, there is an open area. We are ready. The

:17:34.:17:38.

targets have been emptied of the arrows. They are on their way back

:17:38.:17:48.
:17:48.:17:55.

to the pavilion end. We are now down to the last four minutes. Jake

Glancing down, looking at his arrow, making sure it will come out at the

:18:20.:18:29.
:18:30.:18:30.

right time. Jacob Wukie wheels away quickly so that Alison can step

:18:30.:18:37.

forward just as quickly. He can't move forward until the frontline

you won't get me down. Brady Ellison, the last arrow for the

:20:51.:20:53.

United States in the gold medal final. The target has been set. 218.

:20:53.:21:00.

Compare that with the 224 they shot against Korea in the semi. The USA

:21:00.:21:07.

have not been below 220 much in their last year. Nespoli, with a

:21:07.:21:17.
:21:17.:21:23.

nine. 18 to win. Two nines will win it for Italy. Galiazzo, with an

:21:47.:21:52.

was against him, the pressure was against him. He had to get the

:21:52.:21:59.

maximum, and he did. And all that in a calm crumbles as Italy

:21:59.:22:08.

celebrate in style. Brilliant by Frangilli. What a final. Frangilli

:22:08.:22:16.

has now got one of each colour to take home. Only a 10 would do it,

:22:16.:22:26.
:22:26.:22:38.

and that is exactly what he got. Italy, Olympic team champions in

:22:38.:22:44.

the men's division. Tomorrow, the women have their say. But on day

:22:44.:22:54.
:22:54.:22:58.

What emotional scenes at Lord's. Frangilli will be a big hero back

:22:58.:23:05.

in Italy. Huge disappointment for the US, who were the favourites.

:23:05.:23:09.

Italy have the gold. Tremendous scenes at Lord's. The women will be

:23:09.:23:14.

in action tomorrow. Four years ago, Britain's women finished in fourth

:23:14.:23:18.

place, just outside the medals. We are heading off to Weymouth to look

:23:19.:23:23.

ahead to the sailing, which gets under way tomorrow. Before that,

:23:23.:23:33.
:23:33.:23:58.

let's tell you what is happening So, Keovathong is battling on

:23:58.:24:02.

Centre Court, but there was Great Britain -- good news for Britain

:24:02.:24:09.

earlier, when Elena Baltacha, serving at match point against

:24:09.:24:16.

Agnes survey of Hungary, had victory. She won and will play Anna

:24:16.:24:20.

Ivanovic in round number 2. Well, the big story earlier today

:24:20.:24:25.

was disappointment from Mark Cavendish. He did not win the gold

:24:25.:24:27.

medal. He and his team-mates lost touch with the leaders and could

:24:28.:24:33.

not make up the time. They finished out of the medals. Now let's hear

:24:33.:24:39.

from two of Mark Cavendish's team mates.

:24:39.:24:45.

She there was a plan A, and it was going all to plan until the last 45

:24:45.:24:51.

minutes of that race. What happened? We just ran out of legs.

:24:51.:24:57.

We did exactly what we had planned, but the whole race was against us.

:24:57.:25:02.

There was only so much we could control with four riders. We did

:25:02.:25:06.

everything we could. There is nothing to reproach ourselves for,

:25:06.:25:10.

but it was disappointing. There is a sense of this being Great Britain

:25:10.:25:14.

against the world. That was exactly what it was, but we knew that was

:25:14.:25:22.

going to happen. I think we rode really well. No other team could

:25:22.:25:29.

have done what we are tempted to do. When you see the likes of Stuart

:25:29.:25:34.

MacGregor, the Australians will be trying to pull it back. We knew

:25:35.:25:39.

they were never going to ride. Only Germany were going to ride, and

:25:39.:25:43.

they did not have enough strong guys to help us. So we were

:25:43.:25:47.

isolated there. I don't think we could have done anything

:25:47.:25:52.

differently. Disappointing to see Fabian Cancellara go out with a big

:25:52.:26:01.

crash. Did you see that? I did not see that. You question whether he

:26:01.:26:05.

can do anything on Wednesday in the time trial. Is there now a chance

:26:05.:26:10.

for Bradley Wiggins to perhaps finish this off with a flourish?

:26:10.:26:13.

think he will. He is in such incredible form and such good

:26:13.:26:18.

spirits. I think we will get our gold medal there. Brad against the

:26:18.:26:23.

world, he can wrap that up. A quick word on the crowds out on the

:26:23.:26:28.

course? It was magic, never seen anything like it. It was phenomenal.

:26:28.:26:32.

We could not hear anything, we couldn't communicate. We could not

:26:32.:26:40.

hear each other, there was so much screaming. That was incredible.

:26:40.:26:43.

I can see from the way you came in how much effort went into that.

:26:43.:26:52.

That was a hard 250 K. It was definitely a hard day today. Yeah,

:26:52.:26:58.

it is a shame we could not hold it together for Mark. But that his

:26:58.:27:05.

bike racing. You had to do so much on your own in that race. I said it

:27:05.:27:10.

did Dave Miller, but there was a sense of you against the world?

:27:10.:27:15.

Each and every one of us buried ourselves today. We were trying to

:27:15.:27:22.

keep the race together. But with a team of only five guys, that was

:27:22.:27:32.
:27:32.:27:34.

quite a task. Hats off to the guys who stayed away. Your team-mate

:27:34.:27:37.

took the silver medal. What do you think you have got left in the tank

:27:37.:27:42.

for Wednesday? I will be able to tell when I wake up on Wednesday

:27:42.:27:48.

morning. At the moment, the tank is empty. I have to go and fill up

:27:48.:27:52.

again. He will need a break. The women's

:27:52.:27:56.

road race is tomorrow. Nicole Cooke is in the mix for the medals. The

:27:56.:28:00.

sailing gets under way tomorrow. The British team were not at their

:28:01.:28:04.

opening ceremony last night. They stayed in Weymouth to focus on the

:28:04.:28:08.

challenge ahead, but watched the ceremony unfold with a large crowd

:28:08.:28:12.

on the beach. The cauldron may burn brightly in the Olympic Stadium,

:28:12.:28:15.

but the athletes on the south coast now have their own Olympic flame to

:28:15.:28:21.

inspire them, lit moments ago by Ben Ainslie. The 35-year-old is the

:28:21.:28:26.

most famous member of the team, and tomorrow he will begin his pursuit

:28:26.:28:30.

of Olympic history as he goes for a fourth straight gold medal. The

:28:30.:28:34.

British team overall has set a target of four medals, but the

:28:34.:28:39.

total could be higher. Expectations are high. Let's head live to the

:28:39.:28:43.

south coast and joined former gold medallists John Robinson to look

:28:43.:28:50.

ahead -- Shirley Robinson to look ahead. British team management have

:28:50.:28:55.

been cautious about their predictions for the sailing. They

:28:55.:29:01.

have been in contention since 2000. Six medals at Beijing, four Gold.

:29:01.:29:06.

They have medal chances in every discipline. On paper, it all looks

:29:06.:29:11.

dangerously good. But tomorrow, all eyes are on one man, Ben Ainslie,

:29:11.:29:16.

as he begins his quest to become the greatest Olympic sailor of all

:29:16.:29:26.
:29:26.:29:38.

Ben Ainslie is, in my opinion, the best sailor the country has ever

:29:38.:29:40.

best sailor the country has ever seen, maybe even one of the best

:29:40.:29:46.

athletes the country has ever seen. He is the name, isn't he? It just

:29:46.:29:50.

goes together with sailing. He has got a talent that no-one else has

:29:50.:29:55.

got. To be in a team with him is amazing, I cannot really describe

:29:55.:30:03.

how amazing it is! U2 draw a lot of inspiration from the excitement of

:30:03.:30:08.

the younger members of the team coming through. It might be their

:30:08.:30:13.

first Olympics. It reminds you how fortunate you are, it reminds you

:30:13.:30:19.

not to take these things for granted. It is not doing your job,

:30:19.:30:25.

it is a huge honour and opportunity. To have effectively a figurehead of

:30:25.:30:30.

the Olympic Games in your squad is inspirational. If he wins his

:30:30.:30:34.

fourth gold in Weymouth, I think it puts him off the scale in the

:30:34.:30:43.

Olympic sailing history. It is something I do not think about. It

:30:43.:30:46.

comes up quite a lot, but you cannot afford to think about it.

:30:46.:30:53.

You just think about your goals for these Olympics. If I do that, win

:30:53.:30:59.

or lose, that's all I can do. inspirational for the team, that

:30:59.:31:03.

you have someone who performs so consistently. The pressure never

:31:03.:31:09.

fazes him. He always raises his performance. With some people, you

:31:09.:31:12.

worry about performance dipping under pressure, but with him, his

:31:12.:31:20.

performance always goes up, that's what is impressive. I appreciate by

:31:20.:31:25.

sailing a lot more now, I enjoy it a lot more now. It takes a huge

:31:25.:31:33.

amount of time and commitment and effort, but it is a once-in-a-

:31:33.:31:43.
:31:43.:31:47.

lifetime opportunity. It is true, I Joining me now is the Olympic team

:31:47.:31:52.

manager, and the man himself, Ben Ainslie. What incredible

:31:52.:31:58.

endorsements and support, all of those phrases - how does it make

:31:58.:32:04.

you feel? I am not quite sure exactly what my teammates have been

:32:05.:32:08.

saying, but we have got a fantastic team. We have done a lot of work

:32:08.:32:12.

over the years to be a tight unit. We have spent a lot of time

:32:12.:32:15.

together. According to one of the older guys in the team, although

:32:16.:32:22.

not the oldest. The younger guys and girls are an inspiration for us,

:32:22.:32:27.

with their excitement for these Olympic Games. It is great to see.

:32:27.:32:34.

Stephen, For you, you have also got three other returning gold-

:32:34.:32:38.

medallists - what inspiration does that give to the youngsters?

:32:38.:32:43.

key thing is that they are able to help set the tone, to show those

:32:43.:32:49.

young sailors that everybody has got highs and lows, and they are

:32:49.:32:54.

able to follow their example, and see that every day, you just stick

:32:54.:32:58.

to your routine, get one race at a time out of the way, and hopefully

:32:58.:33:01.

they will get to the end of the week and they will be challenging

:33:01.:33:07.

for a medal, just like our experienced sailors. You have just

:33:07.:33:15.

come from lighting that cold and, you do not always dress like this!

:33:15.:33:21.

-- from lighting the cauldron. Thanks for that! But there has been

:33:21.:33:26.

so much expectation, hasn't there, especially for your event? Yes, I

:33:26.:33:31.

guess you cannot hide from the fact that there is a lot of expectation.

:33:31.:33:35.

It puts a lot of pressure on us, but we put pressure on ourselves to

:33:35.:33:38.

try to be successful. The preparation has gone really well,

:33:38.:33:43.

and after that, all we can do is to get out on the water and give it

:33:43.:33:53.
:33:53.:33:54.

our best. Are you match-fit? Yes, for sure. It goes without saying,

:33:54.:33:58.

we have been working for years for this point. It is very exciting

:33:58.:34:02.

that we are on the eve of racing. We are really looking forward to

:34:02.:34:06.

getting up there. Hopefully, things will go well, but in this arena,

:34:06.:34:10.

you just have to deal with the pressure, the situations, and do

:34:10.:34:16.

your best. It is a long two weeks, isn't it? What about the rest of

:34:16.:34:22.

the team? We are quietly confident. We think we do have realistic medal

:34:22.:34:26.

opportunities in all 10 events. Everybody is desperate now to get

:34:26.:34:29.

racing. They have done the preparation, they have been working

:34:29.:34:34.

very hard. We just want to get on with it tomorrow, and hopefully we

:34:34.:34:38.

will get off to a good start. The racing is staggered over the first

:34:38.:34:42.

week, and then, in the second week, we will start coming to the end of

:34:42.:34:48.

the competitions. At the beginning of the year, it was pretty tough

:34:48.:34:55.

for you, how are you feeling now? am not too bad, I had a difficult

:34:55.:35:01.

winter, for one reason or another. But I am in good shape. I don't

:35:01.:35:05.

think that will let me down. The training and preparation has gone

:35:05.:35:12.

well. It is time to get out there and do it justice. Ben Ainslie's

:35:12.:35:15.

Competition kicks off tomorrow, but there is a lot of racing to go

:35:15.:35:19.

before you get that crack at the podium. This is how you win a gold

:35:19.:35:29.

medal. 10 Olympic gold medals can be won in sailing. It can be done

:35:29.:35:39.
:35:39.:35:41.

with a variety of equipment. Five golds can be won by sailors

:35:41.:35:47.

competing on their own. Four can be won as part of a two-person team.

:35:47.:35:52.

And one, like this, with three on board. Winning the Olympic

:35:52.:36:00.

competition is a huge logistical exercise. Most classes have 10

:36:00.:36:09.

races spread over a week. After that, it gets brutal. Gradually we

:36:09.:36:18.

get towards the medal race. That decides gold, silver and bronze. In

:36:18.:36:22.

sailing, there is just one entry per nation, for each of the 10

:36:22.:36:29.

classes. It in the Olympic sailing team comprises just 16 sailors -

:36:29.:36:35.

nine men and seven women. So, to win a gold medal, it is all about

:36:35.:36:39.

consistency. Ben, we have not seen you start particularly well in the

:36:39.:36:44.

Olympics, although you finish brilliantly - how important is it

:36:44.:36:49.

for you tomorrow, with the crowd and the spectators? It would be

:36:49.:36:54.

nice to have a good start, for the first time in four Olympic circles,

:36:54.:36:59.

to get off to a good start, with my fifth one. But like you said, it is

:36:59.:37:04.

the result at the end that counts. I will try to do my best and get

:37:04.:37:09.

some good, solid results. Tomorrow, you have not only got Ben racing,

:37:09.:37:15.

but also Iain Percy and Andrew Simpson in the Star class. They are

:37:15.:37:21.

defending their result in Beijing. Do you have them down as a gold?

:37:21.:37:24.

Yes, you would have to have them down as one of the favourites, for

:37:24.:37:29.

sure. Iain Percy, double Olympic gold-medallist, he did a fantastic

:37:29.:37:34.

job in Beijing, in very difficult conditions. They know this venue

:37:34.:37:39.

inside out. The preparation for them is coming to a crescendo.

:37:39.:37:45.

Confidence is high at the moment. As Ben said, there's tough

:37:45.:37:51.

competition throughout the class, but everybody would agree that Iain

:37:51.:37:58.

Percy and Andrew will be fighting for the gold medal. There have been

:37:58.:38:02.

plenty of nights I have seen them coming in after dark, it means

:38:02.:38:06.

everything to them, so whole well some that they have been preparing

:38:06.:38:11.

for this? For sure, you cannot find two more motivated guys. Clearly,

:38:11.:38:16.

it has been a huge effort, as it has been for everybody. But they

:38:16.:38:21.

are a great team together. I'm sure they will be right up there at the

:38:21.:38:25.

end of the week. Good luck tomorrow, do not give us any surprises. Last

:38:25.:38:29.

night, it was all about celebration and spectacle, not only in London,

:38:29.:38:35.

but also here in Weymouth. Tonight, though, there is a very different

:38:35.:38:42.

atmosphere. It is all about to begin. It certainly is. Take a look

:38:42.:38:46.

around the boat park. What a contrast to yesterday evening. As

:38:46.:38:50.

you said, we had 9,000 people cheering and waving. Tomorrow

:38:50.:38:59.

morning, in here, it will be a scene of quiet concentration. Four,

:38:59.:39:03.

eight, 12 years of planning, and the final few checks will be taking

:39:03.:39:10.

place, for Ben Ainslie, and 4382 other sailors, from many nations.

:39:10.:39:20.
:39:20.:39:21.

In the distance is Ben Ainslie's leading lady. People have said, why

:39:21.:39:25.

don't you modernise, why don't you change? He says, they do not make

:39:25.:39:32.

them like that anymore. I hope we will be saying that about Ben

:39:32.:39:34.

Ainslie one week on Sunday. Tomorrow morning, he will come in

:39:34.:39:39.

here, it will be fairly quiet, it is not the only class starting

:39:39.:39:43.

tomorrow. There will be a few people milling around. Ben will get

:39:43.:39:47.

himself focused and ready. He is the Master of peaking at the right

:39:47.:39:52.

time. There is where the preparation will happen, and it is

:39:52.:39:58.

out here behind me, among 50 square kilometres, the field of play,

:39:58.:40:03.

where he will make the first steps in his quest for another Olympic

:40:03.:40:08.

medal. He has lit the imagination of the public, he has lit the torch,

:40:08.:40:18.
:40:18.:40:19.

can he ignite our dreams, and his own? He is on the verge of becoming

:40:19.:40:27.

the greatest ever, and there are not many people who can say that.

:40:27.:40:31.

Thank you very much. Very positive vibes coming from Weymouth. We will

:40:31.:40:36.

be heading off to the tennis in a moment. I have got about 20 minutes

:40:36.:40:40.

before I hand over to Gary Lineker, and his main focus will be on the

:40:40.:40:46.

swimming finals. At 7:30pm, it is the first showdown between Brian

:40:46.:40:56.
:40:56.:41:14.

So, for the remaining 15 minutes or so, we're going to head back to

:41:14.:41:18.

Wimbledon. We are not sure if we will see the completion of this

:41:18.:41:22.

match. It is Caroline Wozniacki, the former world number 1. She lost

:41:22.:41:26.

in the first round at Wimbledon just three weeks ago, on this very

:41:26.:41:30.

court, Centre court, against to mirror patients. She is in trouble

:41:30.:41:39.

again, up against the British player and Keothavong. Let's join

:41:39.:41:49.
:41:49.:41:50.

our commentators, songsmith and Tracey Austin. Well, it has been an

:41:50.:42:00.
:42:00.:42:06.

We are right at the start of the third set. Judy Murray, looking

:42:06.:42:10.

after the British women, looking on. She would have been very impressed

:42:10.:42:20.
:42:20.:42:23.

by this performance from Anne Keothavong. What can the British

:42:23.:42:33.
:42:33.:42:53.

number two do here? She is in It has been impressive, hasn't it?

:42:53.:42:57.

It has. Anne Keothavong came out playing really aggressive tennis,

:42:57.:43:07.
:43:07.:43:16.

and she needs to continue like that, Anne Keothavong, 28 years of age

:43:16.:43:19.

now, playing in her very first Olympics, but it means so much to

:43:19.:43:24.

her. She needed a wild card to get in, she did not quite get in on her

:43:24.:43:29.

ranking. She was born and raised in Hackney, very close to the site of

:43:29.:43:32.

the Olympic Park. She currently lives in Wimbledon, not too far

:43:32.:43:42.
:43:42.:43:57.

Speaking to the British camp earlier, they were saying they have

:43:57.:44:01.

had a really good practice week. They have got four women in the

:44:01.:44:06.

Singles competition. They have practising very close -- they have

:44:06.:44:16.
:44:16.:44:19.

been practising very close to the Unfortunately, they did not take

:44:19.:44:22.

part in the Opening Ceremony, but they did spend some time in the

:44:22.:44:28.

Olympic village earlier in the week, before coming to stay at home for

:44:28.:44:32.

the Olympics, in the case of Anne Keothavong. She has really been

inspired by this occasion, and her Nice variety from Anne Keothavong.

You would not know which player was which, in terms of their world

:45:21.:45:27.

rankings, for watching this match. Anne Keothavong, ranked number 76

in the world. Caroline Wozniacki, One feature of this match has been

:46:11.:46:21.

key to this performance. It has, Keothavong has improved her serve,

:46:21.:46:28.

working with her coach. Caroline Wozniacki did come out a little

:46:28.:46:31.

nervous in this match. She did lose in the first round at Wimbledon.

:46:31.:46:37.

She has never been passed 16 here, so grass is not her favourite

:46:37.:46:47.
:46:47.:47:06.

It is so strange to be back at Wimbledon so soon after the end of

:47:06.:47:16.
:47:16.:47:40.

the championships. Keothavong's Why not? She has already challenged

:47:41.:47:48.

once in this match and got it right. That was very tight. Yes, she has

:47:48.:47:58.
:47:58.:48:31.

Very tough ground for Wozniacki. She has been practising with Rory

:48:31.:48:35.

McIlroy. Her boyfriend has been around as well, soaking up this

:52:01.:52:04.

tennis in the first set here, probably some of the best tennis of

:52:04.:52:13.

her life. She played with authority and control, very precise. Could

:52:13.:52:23.
:52:23.:52:51.

It really has turned into such a physical match. Wozniacki always in

:52:51.:52:57.

great shape, but so is Anne Keothavong. Very hard trainer,

Keothavong, who has come back from two cruciate knee surgery is, the

last one being three years ago. She works so hard to get back and

relaunch her career. She has been One of her main goals was to make

:53:32.:53:42.
:53:42.:53:51.

She was in an awkward position, couldn't control the racket head.

Or Wozniacki is starting to make Another fantastic point, but

:54:25.:54:31.

Wozniacki comes out on top and takes a 2-1 lead in this deciding

:54:31.:54:41.
:54:41.:54:46.

Keothavong has been inspirational so far, but as someone who has

:54:46.:54:49.

finished twice as the world number- one over the last couple of years

:54:49.:54:55.

and was the world's best ranked player until about February, she

:54:55.:54:59.

must have something in her locker, despite the fall-off in form. You

:54:59.:55:04.

have been world number-one. Even when your ranking drops, I guess

:55:04.:55:07.

you still think like a world number-one? She is so mentally

:55:07.:55:12.

tough. Wozniacki does not give much, always keeping the unforced errors

:55:12.:55:19.

down. Makes you work for it. She has such a positive attitude. That

:55:19.:55:23.

will not be a issue for her. But I got the feeling that after she lost

:55:23.:55:28.

that first set, she knew she had to come out with more, had to serve a

:55:28.:55:32.

little bigger, try to dictate from the baseline more and add depth on

:55:32.:55:39.

her groundstrokes. Keothavong was really taking control. For she was

:55:39.:55:43.

getting too many short shops for Wozniacki's liking. It has been a

:55:43.:55:50.

cracker of a match. The fans are really absorb and invested in this

:55:50.:56:00.
:56:00.:56:00.

match. You mentioned, can Keothavong sustain the level?

:56:00.:56:03.

Catchy sustain the amount of winners she was hitting through the

:56:03.:56:08.

first? That is what decides whether she makes it through this terrific

:56:08.:56:18.
:56:18.:56:43.

Missed opportunity there for Keothavong. It was a short second

:56:43.:56:53.
:56:53.:57:33.

Just about avoided touching the net. That is what Wozniacki is

:57:33.:57:43.
