If you are watching on BBC Two, now is the time to switch over to BBC

This team had been absolutely brilliant. They have broken Max me

knee in the very first game of this There is almost a grown up when the

:02:50.:02:55.

Andy Murray makes a mistake, that is how perfectly has been all day -

:02:55.:03:05.
:03:05.:03:12.

Great Britain take the opening set! It only takes them 30 minutes.

:03:12.:03:22.
:03:22.:03:42.

he challenge? He did challenge. But We will get some statistics up in a

:03:42.:03:46.

minute but until we do, what has gone right for Great Britain and

:03:46.:03:54.

what has not worked for the Belorussian squares --

:03:54.:03:59.

Belorussians? You cannot lose the opening serve with the man serving,

:03:59.:04:06.

you just cannot do that. Mirnyi played an awful game there. Laura

:04:06.:04:10.

Robson has just continued at the way she has been playing, she has

:04:10.:04:15.

attacked. When she is going for it, she will make some mistakes but she

:04:15.:04:19.

puts a lot of pressure on her opponents and her first serve has

:04:19.:04:25.

been so good. At the moment Mirnyi and Azarenka cannot get rural

:04:25.:04:31.

Robson. That was supposed to be the weak link -- cannot get to Laura

:04:31.:04:41.

They know they have to get into the match right now, Belarus. The need

:04:41.:04:49.

to put some pressure on Robson, because she has been brilliant. You

:04:49.:04:59.
:04:59.:04:59.

have to try and stay away from Andy Will there be a response from the

top seeds? Mirnyi will start us off In the top right, in the red shirt,

:06:01.:06:11.
:06:11.:06:11.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 42 seconds

:06:11.:07:10.

That is brilliant serving from Just the start that the top seeds

:07:10.:07:20.
:07:20.:07:58.

Nicely done there from Murray. He put it nice and deep. He has only

:07:58.:08:01.

played four events this year in doubles, because of his singles

:08:01.:08:07.

commitments. They will with his brother, Jamie. -- and they will

:08:07.:08:15.

He is such a great tennis player that he would win Grand Slams if he

:08:15.:08:19.

played doubles, as would Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic. They

:08:19.:08:29.
:08:29.:08:55.

OK, though. A good first volley from Robson. I like the way she is

:08:55.:09:00.

staying close into the net. She is not backing up. She is making them

:09:00.:09:05.

hit really good shot to get past her. She is staying close to the

:09:05.:09:15.
:09:15.:09:15.

I can't believe Andy Murray has actually entered next week in the

:09:15.:09:21.

Masters series in Toronto. I have a feeling there might be a phone call

:09:21.:09:25.

being made. He can't play that surely, after all this emotion this

:09:25.:09:35.
:09:35.:09:46.

There have been a few phone-calls to that Montreal tournament. Rafael

:09:46.:09:51.

Nadal is out, Roger Federer is out, Djokovic is out. We won't worry

:09:51.:10:01.
:10:01.:10:01.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 42 seconds

:10:01.:11:03.

Laura says her Olympic title is It is OK. Don't forget, she is 18.

:11:03.:11:09.

This is the biggest match of her career. She had to go for that. No

:11:09.:11:19.
:11:19.:11:48.

A lot more movement now from Mirnyi. He is trying to get into this match

:11:48.:11:58.
:11:58.:12:17.

This is the big game coming up now. The first pressure game. The Brits

:12:17.:12:24.

has been so good right from the start. It has been plain sailing.

:12:24.:12:34.
:12:34.:12:34.

Laura Robson is serving this. This is where Azarenka will expect she

:12:34.:12:44.
:12:44.:13:03.

will have the best chance of She has been so solid so far on

:13:03.:13:08.

serve, Robson. She had a bit of a struggle against the Aussies in the

:13:08.:13:13.

quarter-finals. They broke her three times. And twice against the

:13:13.:13:23.
:13:23.:13:55.

Certainly not feeling the pressure so far. That was a magnificent

:13:55.:14:05.
:14:05.:14:27.

One of the things that has helped the British team is in the great

:14:27.:14:31.

preparation they have had, Laura did a few days in the village, just

:14:31.:14:36.

to get a feel of the Olympics. Yet she is staying at home, which is

:14:36.:14:46.
:14:46.:15:01.

They have also been able to get away from its a little, they have a

:15:01.:15:05.

little house at the back here, so they can have treatment, and just

:15:05.:15:15.
:15:15.:15:20.

take a break from a very busy That was a late call, but it is out.

:15:20.:15:26.

That was a pity, because it was a good first serve from Robson.

:15:26.:15:32.

has taken almost three-quarters of an hour of play. But the

:15:32.:15:42.
:15:42.:15:45.

Belorussians finally have a break That is it. We have a momentum

:15:45.:15:51.

switch now in this gold medal match. It can change so quickly. Andy

:15:52.:16:01.

Murray should have made that volley, He is mad himself, he knows it cost

:16:01.:16:11.
:16:11.:16:12.

them back again. A different format for the mixed doubles. It will be a

:16:12.:16:22.
:16:22.:16:22.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 42 seconds

:16:22.:18:01.

10 point tie-breaker if we need to As I said, we're not there yet, but

:18:01.:18:06.

it does look as if we are heading to a Champions' tie-break, which

:18:06.:18:16.
:18:16.:18:24.

they play it, first to 10. Instead It has been high risk, high-stakes

:18:24.:18:34.
:18:34.:18:51.

The beast has been woken. He is really starting to take control in

:18:51.:19:01.
:19:01.:19:09.

Mirnyi holds once more. The Belorussians take a 4-1 lead in the

:19:09.:19:19.
:19:19.:19:29.

The scenery has completely changed in this match. Doesn't take a lot

:19:29.:19:36.

in doubles. Whether it is normal or mixed doubles, a couple of mistakes,

:19:37.:19:41.

and Andy Murray just missed that forehand volley at 30-30 on Laura

:19:41.:19:47.

Robson's serve, and he had been immaculate throughout. Then the

:19:47.:19:57.
:19:57.:20:23.

whole momentum changes, it can go Azarenka, also playing a lot better

:20:24.:20:30.

now. Also getting more returns back into play, tipping the ball at

:20:30.:20:40.
:20:40.:21:10.

Hasn't Judy been through quite Girlfriend Kim and Father William

:21:10.:21:20.
:21:20.:21:36.

somewhere in that play a box as Has to be absolutely perfect, when

:21:36.:21:42.

you are coming in for a volley like that, Mirnyi is a big man, you have

:21:42.:21:52.
:21:52.:22:01.

Four service games played for Andy Murray, just four points lost. It

:22:01.:22:05.

is such a dominant part of Great Britain's performance out here on

:22:05.:22:13.

Centre Court. Can the Belorussians get through the Azarenka service

:22:13.:22:23.
:22:23.:22:31.

Much better served, they missed a lot of first serves in the first

:22:31.:22:40.

set. Laura Robson hasn't had as many opportunities to give the big

:22:40.:22:43.

returns she is capable of. She has been at full stretch much more in

:22:43.:22:53.
:22:53.:23:06.

Is that adrenalin ever going to run out? A I don't think so! Bidding to

:23:06.:23:16.
:23:16.:23:17.

become a double gold medallist That was good from Azarenka. She is

:23:17.:23:27.
:23:27.:23:29.

She went off to train in the United States at a young age on her own.

:23:29.:23:39.
:23:39.:23:39.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 42 seconds

:23:39.:24:20.

Her rich to the top has been a This is a great fightback from

:24:20.:24:30.
:24:30.:24:48.

So, where now fraught Robson and Murray? What should their response

:24:48.:24:53.

be? The thing is, their opponents have both started playing better,

:24:53.:24:58.

but they are both returning serve better, Mirnyi is the one who is

:24:58.:25:03.

taking charge at the net, and Azarenka is solid from the baseline.

:25:03.:25:10.

They have to keep on focusing here. This is a big game coming up. Laura

:25:10.:25:15.

Robson has to keep going for the ball and she has been. She hasn't

:25:15.:25:20.

been getting as many balls over, but a lot of that is the serving

:25:21.:25:24.

from Mirnyi and at Azarenka, which has been a lot better in this said.

:25:24.:25:29.

But it will come. Even read doesn't in this set, you have the tie-

:25:30.:25:34.

breaker, which it is very open, anything can happen. Andy Murray is

:25:34.:25:39.

the captain, he has to keep encouraging Laura. A long way to go

:25:39.:25:49.
:25:49.:26:13.

yet. Great Britain, serving to stay He has been great, Andy Murray. He

:26:13.:26:23.
:26:23.:26:28.

has been so good with her. It has It has been lovely, because he

:26:28.:26:38.
:26:38.:26:47.

doesn't dare tell her exactly what Azarenka, not happy with Mirnyi

:26:47.:26:55.

there! Le oche he wasn't turning round to see her reaction -- lucky.

:26:55.:27:05.
:27:05.:27:05.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 42 seconds

:27:05.:27:53.

The hands went up in the air. Why That is too good. Azarenka, really

:27:53.:28:02.

coming to the party now. As she said, she is the Australian Open

:28:02.:28:07.

champion, already a bronze in the singles. She beat Kirilenko for the

:28:07.:28:17.
:28:17.:28:34.

Laura Robson wanted a piece of that Yesterday, Laura's parents were

:28:34.:28:39.

here at Wimbledon, I haven't seen them here today, I almost have the

:28:39.:28:45.

feeling they can't bear to watch. I'm sure they must be at home

:28:45.:28:50.

somewhere, hidden about somewhere in the grounds. I'm sure they won't

:28:50.:29:00.
:29:00.:29:02.

Max Mirnyi now, with the new balls, serving to take this into the

:29:02.:29:12.
:29:12.:29:12.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 42 seconds

:29:12.:30:32.

They haven't missed too much in this second set, the top seed's.

:30:32.:30:42.
:30:42.:30:56.

They were quite inspirational in the first set, Murray and Robson.

:30:56.:31:02.

It has been the Belorussians that have dominated the second. Mirnyi

:31:02.:31:12.
:31:12.:31:12.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 42 seconds

:31:12.:32:19.

After exactly one hour's play, Azarenka and Mirnyi level up and

:32:19.:32:29.
:32:29.:32:36.

It is all on the line now. This 10 point tie-breaker. If we see when

:32:36.:32:40.

Great Britain hath won this mixed doubles events. It has only been

:32:40.:32:46.

played six times. They one the inaugural one in 1900, Dougherty

:32:46.:32:56.

and Cooper, in Paris. -- A won the inaugural one. They got FF300. In

:32:56.:33:06.

Stockholm, Great Britain won. And 1920, and work. -- in Antwerp. The

:33:09.:33:19.
:33:19.:33:29.

Azarenka and Mirnyi certainly proved they were level. This is a

:33:29.:33:34.

shoot-out now. First to 10. Anything can happen. Who hold their

:33:34.:33:44.
:33:44.:34:04.

Not a good start but unlike with the normal tie-break, first-7, it

:34:04.:34:09.

is first to 10, so time to get back if you do get a bad start. That

:34:09.:34:19.
:34:19.:34:47.

The noise around the Centre court has to be heard to be believed. How

:34:47.:34:57.
:34:57.:35:12.

they would love to see another Max Mirnyi is serving so much

:35:12.:35:22.
:35:22.:35:22.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 42 seconds

:35:22.:36:32.

Robson takes on Mirnyi. She did This is the first to 10, not your

:36:32.:36:42.
:36:42.:36:55.

It is on the line! That look like that was Mirnyi's

:36:55.:37:02.

point there. It looked like it was almost there, but great reflex from

:37:02.:37:10.

Laura Robson. Again, not intimidated. Not moving back.

:37:10.:37:20.
:37:20.:37:21.

18-year-old has been terrific in They changed ends every six points.

:37:21.:37:31.
:37:31.:37:45.

That was just a response to the amount that Mirnyi was starting to

:37:45.:37:52.

move around the court in that second set. Laura was not sure

:37:52.:38:02.
:38:02.:38:26.

Murray has to reassure her. No big deal. They have got time.

:38:27.:38:33.

Azarenka's serve is vulnerable. If they get to nine apiece, it will be

:38:33.:38:43.
:38:43.:38:58.

That is better! That was a fine That is what you have got to do

:38:58.:39:02.

when your partner has played a bad point. Help her out, as he did with

:39:02.:39:12.
:39:12.:39:32.

that belief. Excellent play. -- as A little disturbance, there was a

:39:32.:39:42.
:39:42.:39:45.

child crying, it has just been Yes! Back come Murray and Robson

:39:45.:39:51.

again! Excellent play from Murray and

:39:51.:39:56.

Robson. Standing so close to their net there, it is very difficult for

:39:56.:40:00.

the opposing team took on the back to Robson because she is right on

:40:00.:40:04.

top of the net so they have to almost go back to Murray. CROWD:

Team GB! Team GB! We are back on serve once more in

:40:22.:40:46.

Two serves for Murray to come. could be a good passage of play for

:40:46.:40:53.

the British team if Murray can hold these two serves. Azarenka would

:40:53.:41:01.

then be serving. Have you ever seen him serve this will? No. He is

:41:01.:41:07.

serving brilliantly. -- serve this wealth? They will change and! Once

:41:07.:41:15.

more. -- they were changed ends once more. A gold medal on the line.

:41:15.:41:25.
:41:25.:41:59.

I had a feeling that was going to go there. The momentum changes

:41:59.:42:05.

hands once more. Again, the Belorussians with the mini-break,

:42:05.:42:10.

with the slightest of advantages in this champion's time break -- tie-

:42:10.:42:20.
:42:20.:42:53.

breaks. Two says now for Azarenka. I don't believe that. I did not see

:42:54.:43:03.
:43:04.:43:25.

that happening. This is a must win Azarenka is too strong for the

:43:25.:43:31.

young Laura. That was brilliant play from Azarenka because Murray

:43:31.:43:36.

made his move. She saw him go. She hit the ball beautifully in the

:43:36.:43:42.

tramlines. After an hour and 10 minutes of play, the top seeds,

:43:42.:43:52.
:43:52.:44:05.

Azarenka and Mirnyi, have three Solid groundstrokes there from

:44:05.:44:15.

Still two gold medal. Remain for Well! Two saved! One remains. Max

Mirnyi has never one an Olympic battle for his success in doubles.

:45:09.:45:21.

That is it! It will be a silver medal for Robson and married. And

:45:21.:45:27.

gold to Azarenka and Mirnyi. Absolute delight for the Bella

:46:07.:46:11.

medal, to go with all those grand There will be quite a party tonight,

:46:11.:46:18.

I would imagine. Azarenka is meant to be in Montreal next week, I

:46:18.:46:28.
:46:28.:46:35.

Disappointment for Andy Murray and Laura Robson. They were

:46:35.:46:38.

inspirational in their opening set, they just couldn't quite keep it

:46:38.:46:48.
:46:48.:46:59.

Well, huge disappointment, I am They are really good team, and it

:46:59.:47:04.

was a close match, I just want to say thank you to Andy for playing

with because it is but one of the best weeks of my life. She has

:47:08.:47:15.

played so well? Is she was unbelievable, returning at the

:47:15.:47:19.

serve really well, and at the end of all of their matches, she played

:47:19.:47:28.

some great tennis, and yes... Disappointed. They are such a tough

:47:28.:47:33.

team, though. Yes, they are the top seeds for a reason. For me, I was

:47:33.:47:38.

just happy to be in the final, but this is tough to lose today.

:47:38.:47:44.

thoroughbred, you have a cold and a silver to add a for Team GB!

:47:44.:47:48.

would have signed up for that at the start of the event. It is just
