This is the national programme. We are going to take you over to

:00:12.:00:20.

Wimbledon... He's done it. The majesty -- Her Majesty will present

:00:21.:00:31.

the trophy. Oh, yes! That is perfect. Irresistible, majestic, in

:00:32.:00:38.

a class of her own. Wimbledon champion.

:00:39.:00:46.

Welcome to the middle Saturday of Wimbledon. We have had five days of

:00:47.:00:52.

sunshine and heat and we expect another full day of play on the

:00:53.:00:57.

courts of the All-England Club. In addition to our TV coverage you can

:00:58.:01:01.

watch up to six matches on the Red Button depending on your provider,

:01:02.:01:06.

and more live courts uninterrupted on the BBC Sport app, website and

:01:07.:01:12.

connected TVs. And after all the tension of Andy Murray's victory on

:01:13.:01:16.

Centre Court last night we hope for more drama here this afternoon, and

:01:17.:01:20.

by the end of the day we should know the last 16 in the men's and ladies

:01:21.:01:24.

singles. Let's look at the order of play on the show courts. First up on

:01:25.:01:33.

Centre Court at 1pm, Agnieszka Radwanska against Timea Bacsinszky.

:01:34.:01:38.

Big hitter Ernests Gulbis against Novak Djokovic, and Mischa Zverev,

:01:39.:01:43.

older brother of Sasha, against Roger Federer. Raonic starts on

:01:44.:01:53.

Court One. Dominic Thiem, an up-and-coming star, taking on

:01:54.:01:55.

another, 20-year-old Jarrod Donaldson. We are going to take you,

:01:56.:02:03.

you may have been watching on BBC Two, court number three where Grigor

:02:04.:02:07.

Dimitrov is taking on Dudi Sela, who has just had the trainer on court

:02:08.:02:12.

but he is back out playing. As you can see Dimitrov has taken the first

:02:13.:02:18.

set 6-1 and is serving for this game, so let's join our

:02:19.:02:19.

commentators. COMMENTATOR: It has been a good

:02:20.:02:28.

start to the second set, especially after the long break for the

:02:29.:02:33.

trainer. Doesn't seem to have affected Dimitrov.

:02:34.:02:48.

Sela trying to take the return early. Comfortable service hold from

:02:49.:02:57.

the Bulgarian. He has only actually last two points on serve so far in

:02:58.:03:04.

this encounter. I do like the way, though, that Sela is trying

:03:05.:03:09.

something different. It is not effective at the moment, he is

:03:10.:03:12.

trying to take the ball a bit earlier and not give Dimitrov so

:03:13.:03:16.

much time as he did in the first set so he is thinking and at least

:03:17.:03:24.

coming out with plan Be. He is not accepting his fate. Here's a

:03:25.:03:30.

thinker. Against Granollers he changed his game style, played more

:03:31.:03:32.

balls in court, mixed up the spins. Forced back in that rally but gets

:03:33.:03:51.

away with it. Only made two unforced errors in the first set, Dimitrov,

:03:52.:03:53.

just his third of the match. How about that? That was a change,

:03:54.:04:15.

wasn't it? Again, thinking. Only 103 miles an hour in his serve -

:04:16.:04:19.

volleys. Dimitrov was not expecting it. Good tactics. Good volley.

:04:20.:04:24.

Snapped that one away. Another day for the sunglasses, I'm

:04:25.:04:43.

glad to say. Lucky he was following that one in

:04:44.:05:25.

as well, in the second serve. Struggling, missing the first serve.

:05:26.:05:30.

Sela has won just three of 11 points in this match so far. A second

:05:31.:05:32.

double fault. You can tell the crowd wanting to

:05:33.:05:55.

get behind Sela here, hoping to see a bit more of an encounter.

:05:56.:06:02.

He has got good hand skills, Sela, has the title to his name on the ATP

:06:03.:06:11.

Tour doubles circuit. Has never won an ATP Tour singles title.

:06:12.:06:23.

Oh, pity. I'm surprised he hasn't challenged this one. It was very

:06:24.:06:36.

close. Interesting to see the umpire's you. Richard Haig said it

:06:37.:06:43.

was a fraction wide. -- the umpire's view.

:06:44.:07:01.

Groans from the crowd. Dimitrov has another break point.

:07:02.:07:22.

The one-way traffic continues as Dimitrov breaks early in the second

:07:23.:07:27.

set. The winner of this one faces either

:07:28.:08:07.

Roger Federer or Mischa Zverev, but would you put Dimitrov in your top

:08:08.:08:11.

five contenders to win the championship 's? Not quite. I put

:08:12.:08:26.

him just outside of that. Even with this performance is not changing

:08:27.:08:29.

your mind at all? Not in the top five, no. I'm guessing you go for

:08:30.:08:50.

the big four, I wonder who your 50s? -- Puyol fifth is. That is a third

:08:51.:08:52.

ace will Dimitrov. In the blink of an eye, able to

:08:53.:09:17.

back-up the break. 3-0, second set. STUDIO: Sue has gone to Centre Court

:09:18.:09:21.

because she has a big introduction job to do but as you can see,

:09:22.:09:26.

Dimitrov in control of that match. At court two this is the featured

:09:27.:09:32.

match on the Red Button, former Wimbledon runner-up and French Open

:09:33.:09:36.

champion Muguruza has taken the second set, it is 1-1 in the second

:09:37.:09:42.

set. Encore 12 Svetlana Kuznetsova, the seventh seed, took the set

:09:43.:09:49.

against Hercog and is a break-up already in the second. On Courteix

:09:50.:10:00.

team Magdalena Ribarikova who pulled off a fabulous win against Pliskova

:10:01.:10:03.

is still looking strong, arguably on the best form coming into this

:10:04.:10:07.

tournament having won so many titles, 6-2 to her in the first set

:10:08.:10:14.

against Tsurenko and they are starting the second set. Let's

:10:15.:10:18.

rejoin Grigor Dimitrov against Dudi Sela Kirk, who gave the

:10:19.:10:23.

giant-killing performance when he took out John Isner, but now

:10:24.:10:26.

struggling with a thigh injury and Dimitrov in control.

:10:27.:10:43.

COMMENTATOR: Sela who had his right thigh heavily strapped, has taken

:10:44.:10:51.

the strapping off. We had to delay between the sets when he had

:10:52.:10:54.

treatment and that was put on. Clearly he felt it was causing some

:10:55.:10:56.

discomfort. Does just look a little stiff,

:10:57.:11:21.

almost, with his movement. I wonder he if he will carry on the end of

:11:22.:11:25.

the second set. Oh! That was a bit cheeky, wasn't

:11:26.:11:51.

it? I had the feeling he was wanting to try and shorten the points. Nice

:11:52.:11:55.

hand skills again, though, wasn't it?

:11:56.:12:02.

That is the serve and volley again. That is the way of shortening the

:12:03.:12:07.

point if he is carrying an injury. Not quite made it, just lost his

:12:08.:13:24.

footing at the wrong time, Dimitrov, but an excellent point from Sela and

:13:25.:13:28.

his team are delighted, the Israelis still showing plenty of fight and

:13:29.:13:32.

gets himself on the board in this second set.

:13:33.:13:45.

Oh... Bad volley, that one, just snatched it forward, racket head

:13:46.:14:07.

down. LAUGHTER Oh! That's a pity. It would

:14:08.:15:30.

have been a classic if they get bad for winners. If Sela loses this

:15:31.:15:36.

match at least he will have that shot to take home! LAUGHTER I love

:15:37.:15:41.

that! Not sure if he would have done that at 3-3 in the first set, but

:15:42.:15:50.

look at that, classic! Don't try that at home! Good shot. Dimitrov in

:15:51.:16:00.

his last match did one round the back against bad. Us from the

:16:01.:16:03.

baseline and won the point so maybe Sela was just trying to outdo him.

:16:04.:16:08.

When you see that you think players go to their local clubs, shall I try

:16:09.:16:16.

that? Don't! Especially if you get a higher bouncing ball as well!

:16:17.:16:19.

LAUGHTER. We talked about concentration

:16:20.:16:31.

sometimes being an issue with Dimitrov and he is playing a little

:16:32.:16:38.

bit of a sloppy game. Only dropped two points on serve all match and

:16:39.:16:42.

has dropped three in this game, so opportunity here for the Israeli to

:16:43.:16:44.

get the break back. Oh! Dimitrov got there in the end!

:16:45.:17:15.

He got there, but a couple of shaky points there. That was not a good

:17:16.:17:21.

half-volley therefrom Dimitrov, good lunch, bad approach shot in the

:17:22.:17:24.

first place, but he got away with it.

:17:25.:17:39.

Tight and tense. He looks quite pumped. At the start of the year I

:17:40.:17:51.

watched him in the Brisbane tournament, the first of the year,

:17:52.:17:55.

and I noticed he was more animated between the points and had a steely

:17:56.:17:59.

look to him which he has done throughout much of 2017 of them on

:18:00.:18:03.

the clay courts, not a good clay-court season. Didn't need his

:18:04.:18:10.

feet at all there. The ball is caught out. First time

:18:11.:18:49.

we have seen a challenge from Dimitrov. That's a good one. Shows

:18:50.:18:59.

how well he's seeing the ball today. Replay the point. Diousse.

:19:00.:19:10.

That's the first time he has been tested on serve in this match,

:19:11.:20:06.

Dimitrov, but he passes that test. He is able to hold once again.

:20:07.:20:17.

A few wispy clouds today. Haven't seen too many clouds in the first

:20:18.:20:29.

week, John. No, it has been perfect. That man there just got his

:20:30.:20:33.

concentration back in time, just lost it for a point two and when you

:20:34.:20:37.

play someone like Dudi Sela, who has the trainer on the court again,

:20:38.:20:44.

looks like for a massage, he fights. You lose your concentration for a

:20:45.:20:48.

fraction and he will come at you, and Dimitrov did, just to get

:20:49.:20:50.

himself out of it in time. He can't take any more medical

:20:51.:21:07.

time-outs, so just having a bit of a massage. Of course, this is one of

:21:08.:21:19.

the biggest matches of Dudi Sela's rear. He's reached the fourth round

:21:20.:21:24.

once here before in 2009 before losing to Djokovic.

:21:25.:21:38.

Looks like serve and volley will be the tactic for Sela and Dimitrov

:21:39.:21:42.

alert to it. A different type of set, isn't it,

:21:43.:22:06.

where seeing in this second set, to what we saw in the first. They had

:22:07.:22:11.

to change something, and he has certainly done that.

:22:12.:23:09.

Oh... ! That looked saw when he tried to bend for that volley --

:23:10.:23:23.

that looked painful. Two more break points.

:23:24.:23:38.

A good quality first volley there will stop the passing shot a little

:23:39.:23:45.

bit tougher for Dimitrov. The games have got a little closer.

:23:46.:23:57.

Again, Sela showing some fight. The problem is now Sela is becoming

:23:58.:24:27.

a bit predictable with the serve - volley, and Dimitrov is waiting for

:24:28.:24:35.

it. Just trying to shorten the points, Dudi Sela.

:24:36.:24:45.

Well... If he does have a thigh injury he did well to get down low

:24:46.:24:59.

to that volley. Oh, that's brilliant from Dimitrov.

:25:00.:25:56.

Turns defence into attack. So quick on the court. Good drop shot, too.

:25:57.:26:02.

Did well to get onto that one. He saw it so early.

:26:03.:26:30.

This time Dimitrov is able to convert the break point. It's all a

:26:31.:26:39.

little easy, isn't it, in truth, for the 13 seed right now? A game away

:26:40.:26:42.

from a 2-0 lead. I like that, though, John. Good

:26:43.:26:57.

character, not taking his foot off the gas.

:26:58.:27:49.

Fourth ace, and it brings up three set points.

:27:50.:28:02.

A little longer than the first set, but again, a clinic from Grigor

:28:03.:28:14.

Dimitrov. Take the second set 6-1, and that is that, I'm afraid. You

:28:15.:28:21.

can understand it, Sela really struggling with the thigh injury.

:28:22.:28:26.

Tried to serve and volley, tried to shorten the points. Smiles from

:28:27.:28:31.

Dimitrov, he is always a good sport. The Bulgarian will move through to

:28:32.:28:33.

round four. Just an hour on court. Looked good

:28:34.:28:44.

in that hour, didn't he? He did. But Sela couldn't offer too much.

:28:45.:28:51.

Difficult to judge because Dudi Sela didn't have much opposition today,

:28:52.:28:54.

he was hampered by the problem in the five from the beginning, you

:28:55.:28:58.

could see it, and he is a warrior, he would not default unless he was

:28:59.:29:03.

completely restricted with no chance of him carrying on, so a great pity,

:29:04.:29:09.

some good glimpses as you say, of Dimitrov, but did we see enough to

:29:10.:29:14.

judge? No, but it is a perfect way to end the first week for Dimitrov,

:29:15.:29:19.

another day off and ready for the real battles on the Monday. Yes, and

:29:20.:29:24.

Sela has had a good tournament, a couple of really good five set win

:29:25.:29:28.

is particularly against John Eisner. Dimitrov through to the fourth round

:29:29.:29:32.

for the second time in his career here, and last time he got through

:29:33.:29:38.

to the semifinals in 2014. STUDIO: In that fourth-round Dimitrov will

:29:39.:29:46.

meet either Zverev or Federer, that match coming up later today on

:29:47.:29:49.

Centre Court. We will whip over to court two because Garbine Muguruza,

:29:50.:29:55.

a runner-up here at Wimbledon is edging in on victory against

:29:56.:30:03.

Cirstea. Let's join our commentators for this match.

:30:04.:30:10.

COMMENTATOR: Garbine Muguruza a game away from booking a place in the

:30:11.:30:19.

round of 16. Are very professional performance by Muguruza so far in

:30:20.:30:24.

this match, good serving, big ground strokes, good shot selection, coming

:30:25.:30:28.

into the net when she needed to. This could have been a difficult

:30:29.:30:32.

match for her. Cirstea has many weapons.

:30:33.:30:42.

Just the frustration on the face of the Romanian as Muguruza has

:30:43.:30:49.

seemingly gone through the gears to get herself into this position on

:30:50.:30:52.

the verge of a place in the round of 16.

:30:53.:31:17.

She has done all that has been required of her, Muguruza. She was a

:31:18.:31:27.

finalist here in 2015. A Grand Slam winner. Martinez is in hard corner,

:31:28.:31:31.

the 1994 champion. We just saw martinis there. She is

:31:32.:32:13.

there because Muguruza's called Chas not travelled.

:32:14.:32:25.

The emotions have been unchecked from Muguruza which is Ireland

:32:26.:32:30.

occasion of how she is playing. Very even killed.

:32:31.:32:47.

She fell to save eight break points in her last service game. She was

:32:48.:33:06.

broken. It would be good to hold Pinochet can.

:33:07.:33:19.

A little bit unlucky. If the first shot had not hit then it might have

:33:20.:33:28.

been modified to. As it was it gave me Muguruza at the time to have a

:33:29.:33:34.

good hit back at the backhand. Muguruza is inaccurately quarter of

:33:35.:33:35.

the draw. The winner of the match faces the

:33:36.:34:04.

winner of Angelique Kerber's match. Can she do Martinez knows what it is

:34:05.:34:12.

to win here. She has done all she can do, help serve. She is a game

:34:13.:34:17.

away. It is interesting to know how the

:34:18.:34:36.

players are failing in the absence of a player like Serena Williams and

:34:37.:34:40.

this is perhaps a golden opportunity to claim a first Grand Slam title in

:34:41.:34:47.

the case of Muguruza. Muguruza is in that conversation. She has been to

:34:48.:34:57.

the final in 2015. The last couple of years, since she won Paris, the

:34:58.:35:01.

last couple of years has been a bit of a struggle as far as consistency

:35:02.:35:08.

goes. She is an emotional player. For her to perform on the cord

:35:09.:35:13.

everything has to be in place off of the cord and sometimes she is on the

:35:14.:35:15.

edge emotionally. Muguruza has not had any real

:35:16.:35:43.

standout results this season. She has battled a few minor injuries.

:35:44.:35:48.

Her ankle shot down when she fell to defend her French Open crown.

:35:49.:36:01.

Muguruza has been as high as two in the world. She is currently sitting

:36:02.:36:04.

at 15. We have said a few times about

:36:05.:37:48.

Cirstea, it is the final shot. Doesn't give herself near enough

:37:49.:37:52.

time to hit that, is she tried to hit bad for a winner or hit it back

:37:53.:38:01.

into the Muguruza forehand side? Too many unforced errors from Cirstea

:38:02.:38:11.

today. It came about from a lovely served from Muguruza to bring up

:38:12.:38:12.

match point. There it is. Arms aloft, Muguruza is

:38:13.:38:57.

through to the round of 16. It has taken her just over an hour. One

:38:58.:39:02.

hour and ten minutes. She is yet to drop a set, today against Cirstea.

:39:03.:39:13.

6-2, 6-2. I think she will be more than happy. I cannot believe when

:39:14.:39:20.

she won that last match point should boot both her arms up into the air.

:39:21.:39:26.

Muguruza knew this was going to be a tough match, didn't she? Just the

:39:27.:39:32.

joy that we saw when she won one match point goes to show that she

:39:33.:39:39.

was ready for this today, she was measured, her shot selection was

:39:40.:39:45.

good. Her effectiveness was good. There are few left in the draw but

:39:46.:39:56.

Muguruza is a contender for the -- a former finalist in 2015. She will

:39:57.:40:00.

face the winner of the Angelique Kerber's match.

:40:01.:40:12.

Almost simultaneously a win for the seventh seed from Russia. 6-4, 6-0.

:40:13.:40:26.

She knows exactly what goes on. Hugely experienced player.

:40:27.:40:39.

A relatively straightforward win. One of the stories of the

:40:40.:40:48.

championship so far is Magdalena Rybarikova who has beaten so. She

:40:49.:40:59.

was sidelined for most of last season. She marches into the last

:41:00.:41:03.

16. It is the most lovely day here. A

:41:04.:41:21.

little bit cooler than yesterday. Those on the outside courts have

:41:22.:41:26.

been watching practice, Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, it is a

:41:27.:41:32.

funny thing to be able to do. There are doubles and mixed doubles

:41:33.:41:37.

matches on the outside courts. Later we will be concentrating on the

:41:38.:41:41.

action on Centre Court and Court One. We start with Agnieszka

:41:42.:41:56.

Radwanska against Bacsinszky. Roger Federer has been speaking to Phil

:41:57.:42:01.

Jones. One thing that maybe will surprise

:42:02.:42:21.

the viewers is that you get nervous still on Centre Court and there was

:42:22.:42:26.

a bit of that yesterday. Yet, I do not know why that happens but I am

:42:27.:42:31.

happy, it means I care. It means I am excited for the match. Sometimes

:42:32.:42:36.

getting rid of the nurse takes a couple of games, sometimes it is a

:42:37.:42:43.

set. You cannot explain why. That is the beauty of the match situation.

:42:44.:42:47.

It throws you this pressure and you have to deal with it. It took me a

:42:48.:42:53.

while to deal with the nurse but I got through it. How would you

:42:54.:42:59.

measure your level in terms of where you needed to be going forward? Now

:43:00.:43:07.

I am in the third round and I am facing my first seed it is when you

:43:08.:43:14.

can tell where my level is at. I did not drop any sense. I have not

:43:15.:43:19.

received any energy. I am healthy, I feel good. Very is quirky, universe

:43:20.:43:35.

now what you are going to get. . He played me in Australia and tried to

:43:36.:43:39.

take the ball early. It will be interesting to see what he will do.

:43:40.:43:45.

He is most likely going to serve on the first and second serve. I like

:43:46.:43:50.

to play against those kind of players because we will see

:43:51.:43:58.

everything that grass court tennis wants to see.

:43:59.:44:11.

Roger Federer the coolest man on the planet. He is playing me show very.

:44:12.:44:22.

-- Zverev. He was asked how he would approach the match against Federer.

:44:23.:44:31.

He said give a mean look. Novak Djokovic has been looking very

:44:32.:44:37.

relaxed and signing autographs. He has Andre Agassi in his camp. Trying

:44:38.:44:42.

to find the answer to bigger questions in life. He says tennis as

:44:43.:44:48.

part of a much bigger picture. Moving his way through to the round

:44:49.:44:53.

of 16 is his aim today. It is a big day at Wimbledon because in the

:44:54.:44:56.

middle sat that they invite lots of stars from the world of sport mac.

:44:57.:45:04.

We are going to see plenty of familiar faces from Rio de Janeiro.

:45:05.:45:14.

Welcome to Centre Court. In keeping with tradition, the chairman of the

:45:15.:45:20.

All England Club has invited guests into the Royal Box from the world of

:45:21.:45:24.

sport and this year we are paying tribute to some of the stars from

:45:25.:45:30.

last summer's Olympics where Great Britain broke records galore. Three

:45:31.:45:41.

stars from the pool. Two swimmers who won double gold at the

:45:42.:45:48.

Paralympics. A breast stroke swimmer who broke the world record to win

:45:49.:45:53.

gold. Hannah Russell and Adam P T. Staying in the water or other on it,

:45:54.:46:16.

welcome some more British Olympic champions. Two sailors who turned

:46:17.:46:27.

London silver into gold and two canoeists who created another golden

:46:28.:46:32.

splash for Team GB. Saskia Clark, Hannah Mills, Joe Clark and Liam

:46:33.:46:33.

Heath. Another fantastic rowing regatta for

:46:34.:46:55.

Great Britain and we are delighted to be joined by some of the gold

:46:56.:46:59.

winning crew and a woman who retained her title in great style.

:47:00.:47:10.

Paul Bennett, Matt Langridge, Tom Rienzi, Alex Gregory and Helen

:47:11.:47:13.

Glover. Another group whose exploits in the

:47:14.:47:32.

Olympic hockey final had the nation gripped. Their thrilling penalty

:47:33.:47:36.

shoot out delayed the Ten O'Clock News but it did not matter because

:47:37.:47:40.

that evening they were the nose. From the Great Britain's women's

:47:41.:47:47.

hockey team, Hannah McLeod, Jordi Twigg, Helen Richardson Walsh and

:47:48.:47:48.

Kate Richardson Walsh. Next some more athletes who struck

also happens to be a Wimbledon champion. Sophie Kristiansen, Libby

:48:24.:48:30.

Clegg and her guide Chris Clark, Georgina Hermitage and Gordon Reid.

:48:31.:48:54.

It was yet another record-breaking Games for Olympic and Paralympic

:48:55.:49:00.

cyclist and we are thrilled to see many of them here today. Give a

:49:01.:49:10.

Centre Court welcome to Eleanor Parker, Jordi Cundy, Philip Hinds

:49:11.:49:11.

and Calum Skinner. We are also delighted to be joined

:49:12.:49:36.

by two more cyclists who make up Britain's most successful Olympic

:49:37.:49:40.

couple. Winning an incredible ten gold medals between them, they

:49:41.:49:49.

haven't finished yet. Isn't that nice? Laura and Jason Kenny.

:49:50.:50:10.

Finally, a man who is very familiar with its famous arena, a tennis

:50:11.:50:16.

player who retained his Olympic title in Rio and this crowd are

:50:17.:50:20.

hoping he will be retaining his Wimbledon title in eight days.

:50:21.:50:24.

Welcome back to Centre Court Andy Murray.

:50:25.:51:12.

They love you, Andy. All of London's emergency services provide support

:51:13.:51:23.

for the Championships, many as volunteers. Armed forces personnel

:51:24.:51:27.

is a body by members of the London Fire Brigade have been stewarding

:51:28.:51:33.

the show courts. Many of them have shown their professionalism, bravery

:51:34.:51:37.

and dedication in active service in the most demanding of circumstances.

:51:38.:51:43.

We are honoured they are here. Show your appreciation for our stewards

:51:44.:51:44.

at the Royal Box guests. We are going to take you over to

:51:45.:52:40.

Wimbledon for running commentary of the all England championship...

:52:41.:52:45.

Tennis played a crucial part in when colour was introduced.

:52:46.:53:06.

That was Pat Cash in his element. I think he said that was the second

:53:07.:54:27.

best time he has had here at Wimbledon after winning the trophy.

:54:28.:54:33.

A bit of fun there. Billie Jean and Tracy are with me. Can you believe

:54:34.:54:42.

it? I saw your story. I love you and virgin you walking in Central Park.

:54:43.:54:49.

She did not buy a lunch! And will have to talk to her about that.

:54:50.:54:54.

Wasn't that lovely with Andy Murray? He was so embarrassed. He beat the

:54:55.:55:01.

greatest player ever at home in Great Britain on Centre Court at

:55:02.:55:06.

Wimbledon. I couldn't believe it. The script was written in heaven.

:55:07.:55:12.

But this was going to happen. Such a great moment for Great Britain and

:55:13.:55:18.

all of us throughout the world. I remember when he won here. Perfect.

:55:19.:55:26.

I love the guy. He deals with it so well. A lot of players would buckle

:55:27.:55:33.

under that. Gerber had trouble last year after winning so much. Two

:55:34.:55:39.

majors and losing the finals here. She did not like the off the court

:55:40.:55:45.

pressures that came with it and she has not played as well because of

:55:46.:55:50.

that. It is amazing. People do not realise when they get to the job it

:55:51.:55:56.

is what comes with it. She was used at having time to herself and she

:55:57.:56:02.

was not getting it. It was -- is interesting to see how Babel cope

:56:03.:56:07.

with being number one. Even yesterday the way he called with

:56:08.:56:12.

Fabio Fognini. Fognini must be very difficult to play because his game

:56:13.:56:16.

is awkward, he gives you know them. He gets the treatment for his ankle

:56:17.:56:21.

and he comes out and is running beautifully and Andy faced five set

:56:22.:56:26.

points and that could been very dangerous if it went to a fifth and

:56:27.:56:30.

it would probably have got dark. Andy seems to love the challenge and

:56:31.:56:34.

a feeling of trying to problems of and how can I work less point out?

:56:35.:56:40.

That is what is so important? He does not think about winning and

:56:41.:56:43.

losing and the expectations of the crowd. He uses the crowd. He knows

:56:44.:56:49.

when to pump them up. He seems to thrive on it. That is what great

:56:50.:56:57.

champions do, find a way to win. They embrace the moment, the crowd,

:56:58.:57:02.

their energy, they find a way to win the big points and that is what

:57:03.:57:06.

makes them extra good. Up the level just enough to win the point.

:57:07.:57:12.

Fognini is a really hard to play. Very difficult. Andy said I could

:57:13.:57:18.

try to overpower him. He was mixing it up a lot. And he needs to go to

:57:19.:57:24.

the net more or be more aggressive if he is going to win. He has

:57:25.:57:29.

defined that happy medium to be appropriately aggressive. Getting in

:57:30.:57:34.

their face and giving pleasure. Going against what he does that

:57:35.:57:39.

truly. He likes to retreat. Andy can do anything. He just has to get in

:57:40.:57:46.

the mindset. Look for the openings, sunlight, go forward more. Not all

:57:47.:57:53.

the time, but look for that. That is what Lendl wants to do. Two match

:57:54.:58:07.

points. Maybe I have that wrong. It is not going to be all about power,

:58:08.:58:14.

it is about changes of pace, drop shots, using all forms of the game

:58:15.:58:18.

and both have such high tennis IQs because they do not have that

:58:19.:58:23.

ability with one shot. It is going to be a lot of fun. Both have had

:58:24.:58:29.

subpar years coming into Wimbledon. Bacsinszky got to the semifinal of

:58:30.:58:34.

the French. It is something players have a difficulty with us you change

:58:35.:58:40.

rackets. Probably for this reason. You think? It was a different head.

:58:41.:58:48.

They messed with your head. It is one of the things that is difficult

:58:49.:58:52.

to change. She lost confidence. Other players felt they could beat

:58:53.:58:58.

her. She has changed back. Real opportunity in this top half of the

:58:59.:58:59.

draw. Here they come. Watching her play, she is so

:59:00.:59:23.

difficult, she runs everything down. Difficulty with the right foot, I am

:59:24.:59:29.

going to look for that. She is like a chess player, tactically amazing.

:59:30.:59:34.

The one thing she lacks is power. I love watching her play. How her mind

:59:35.:59:39.

works. Can you imagine how great she would be at you had a couple of big

:59:40.:59:45.

weapons? She is slight compared to some of the other athletes on court.

:59:46.:59:50.

Bacsinszky's forehand is weak and the backhand is beautiful. Top money

:59:51.:59:59.

shot. It has not been a great year so this has come at the right time.

:00:00.:00:05.

Change of the racket and the foot injury. She depends on her foot

:00:06.:00:10.

speed. She uses a lot of defends to get the extra ball back in play

:00:11.:00:16.

because all of the points are going to go two, three, four. It is the

:00:17.:00:21.

beauty of using the entire court and that is what both of them do. She is

:00:22.:00:26.

going to have to decide, she has never beaten Bacsinszky, does she

:00:27.:00:30.

want to go with the forehand to the weaker side, it is going to slice

:00:31.:00:36.

more, drop shot more, but the backhand is much more powerful?

:00:37.:00:42.

We mentioned Angelique Kerber, no one was talking about her before as

:00:43.:00:52.

we look at who is here. Muguruza and Kuznetsova are already through. Who

:00:53.:00:56.

to look out for in this top half, you mentioned Angelique Kerber, she

:00:57.:01:00.

is going through OK. She is going through all right but I think she is

:01:01.:01:04.

lacking self-confidence that needs to find her form. She has to work

:01:05.:01:10.

hard on her serve. I love her spot shot, she can go so low, her centre

:01:11.:01:16.

of gravity is so low especially on the

:01:17.:01:32.

backhand, I her a lot because she has to work hard, she is not as tall

:01:33.:01:36.

as some other players. She's a great athlete and I hope she feels

:01:37.:01:38.

confident. Self-confidence is so important. Muguruza impressive

:01:39.:01:40.

today, now working with Conchita Martinez. She is calming and gets

:01:41.:01:42.

her focus really well. I think it really helps Muguruza. She has the

:01:43.:01:47.

game for grass. She does but winning the French Open last year as well.

:01:48.:01:51.

She hasn't been back to the final anywhere since so struggles with

:01:52.:01:55.

extra expectations, more attention. I think it's soon as she comes in

:01:56.:02:01.

here she recognises that her ground strokes, if she can get confidence

:02:02.:02:05.

behind those that had such weapons, big serves us well. Three former

:02:06.:02:14.

finalist in the top half but I still consider that was a huge upset in my

:02:15.:02:25.

opinion when she lost the other day. This draw is wide open. It will all

:02:26.:02:30.

be about who can find the confidence match by match to get better and

:02:31.:02:36.

play their way in, and Wimbledon is just sitting there! Everyone thinks

:02:37.:02:45.

Johanna Konta is going to win. Do you know what she did? She went to a

:02:46.:02:52.

sports psychologist. A lot of players don't want to do that. You

:02:53.:02:58.

have to be vulnerable and search yourself and learn to change and

:02:59.:03:03.

change yourself talk because you are what you think. And I love her for

:03:04.:03:08.

that. She paid the price at the emotional office. It is the

:03:09.:03:12.

emotional strength that makes great champions, not just the mental and

:03:13.:03:15.

physical strength, and that I find at the top of the most important

:03:16.:03:21.

quality. Mental is what you think. It is what you feel. As well, when

:03:22.:03:27.

you are right there in this match point. Explain, what you feel? Am I

:03:28.:03:34.

getting shaky, and my nervous, what is going on? That self-awareness and

:03:35.:03:38.

the awareness of what is happening. The players who are stronger

:03:39.:03:43.

emotionally really truly believe in themselves, you need the inner

:03:44.:03:46.

strength at important times like Federer has it. They believe they

:03:47.:03:51.

can do this, and they stay in the right place in their intensity.

:03:52.:03:55.

There is a nod I think about that you have to keep... I don't know how

:03:56.:04:00.

you feel like this, but I think there is an intensity level that is

:04:01.:04:03.

best for that person and you have to know what is best for you and you

:04:04.:04:08.

are constantly adapting it throughout your match because

:04:09.:04:12.

sometimes you get lulled and have to bring your intensity upon sometimes

:04:13.:04:16.

you had is to run and need to it down. Where do I need to be to play

:04:17.:04:25.

my best? That is what players need to know about themselves. That's

:04:26.:04:30.

what I find listening to players, they cannot get the intensity where

:04:31.:04:35.

they need it, the dial. It is a lot of work in a match. It ebbs and

:04:36.:04:39.

flows in the match player and that is what it is about. Now I know

:04:40.:04:47.

where I went wrong! Where were you in 1976, Billie Jean?! You did just

:04:48.:04:56.

fine! She has played well and even better yesterday and not looking too

:04:57.:05:00.

far ahead. We are trying to push into the final but she is not

:05:01.:05:05.

looking too far ahead. It is the mental training she has done in the

:05:06.:05:09.

last couple of years. It was only three years ago she was outside the

:05:10.:05:13.

top 150 and now it is the mental balance she has found that has

:05:14.:05:17.

changed. I covered her match yesterday and Billie Jean is right,

:05:18.:05:21.

the intensity she has, not so intense that it is bubbling over and

:05:22.:05:32.

she is too nervous and big moments, she can control and manage it.

:05:33.:05:35.

Certain trigger when she goes through, that is the mental training

:05:36.:05:38.

she did, and I believe she wants to win the title but knows she cannot

:05:39.:05:41.

look too far ahead. She knows it is one ball at a time. Players think

:05:42.:05:49.

one point, no, it is one ball. But Shinseki's story is amazing. Four

:05:50.:05:53.

years ago she left the game and worked in a hotel -- but Shinseki.

:05:54.:05:59.

Then she found out she was good enough to go to the French Open and

:06:00.:06:03.

she fell in love with the game against. She was pushed by her

:06:04.:06:09.

parents, particularly her dad, and never love the sport on her own and

:06:10.:06:14.

was ranked 40 in the world. Maybe one and one third round of a major,

:06:15.:06:19.

now she has returned she has the French Open, a terrific coach, she

:06:20.:06:24.

has come back and is in great shape and consistently making a deep run

:06:25.:06:29.

for majors so it is phenomenal. The key, she is playing for herself not

:06:30.:06:34.

anybody else. She says she is loving it again. That is how you win. The

:06:35.:06:42.

great matches we have had here... This is the best, I love it. Tracy

:06:43.:06:50.

is on her way to call this match with David Mercer, all yours, David.

:06:51.:06:57.

COMMENTATOR: Tutor Macca semifinalist at Roland Baros two

:06:58.:07:00.

weeks ago. Up against a former finalist here in Agnieszka

:07:01.:07:11.

Radwanska. Don't know what she is asking the umpire for this one. She

:07:12.:07:20.

was extraordinary, so many injuries that the start of the decade, found

:07:21.:07:25.

herself working in a Swiss hotel learning about the hospitality

:07:26.:07:37.

industry. Agnieszka Radwanska... Short of her best this year.

:07:38.:08:38.

One both her previous matches, Bacsinszky.

:08:39.:09:00.

Got the Bali all wrong there, Radwanska, and straightaway, three

:09:01.:09:08.

break points. -- got the volley all wrong there.

:09:09.:09:36.

That the weaker side for Bacsinszky. Forehand. The backhand a real

:09:37.:09:44.

weapon. Radwanska displaying her defensive

:09:45.:10:27.

skills. She is one of the best movers on the court. Supreme

:10:28.:10:28.

athlete. Radwanska getting that point through

:10:29.:10:56.

placement, and she's all about hitting the ball in a spot that

:10:57.:11:01.

makes it awkward for her opponent. Will not outhit or overpower anyone.

:11:02.:11:06.

The combinations of shots will get the job done.

:11:07.:11:15.

Just a little enquiry about the call, but decided not to challenge.

:11:16.:11:38.

We have seen more of those unforced errors from Radwanska this year.

:11:39.:11:49.

Very stingy with those, particularly coming back from 0-40 in this game.

:11:50.:11:51.

Now facing another break point. Oh, what a glorious rally, ended

:11:52.:12:38.

with a fabulous pass to get the break.

:12:39.:12:46.

It is cat and mouse tennis, isn't it? They are looking for angles and

:12:47.:12:53.

openings, they are not going to bludgeon their way to victory.

:12:54.:12:57.

Getting that point alone you saw three forehand slices which you

:12:58.:13:01.

rarely see these days in tennis. They throw everything at the kitchen

:13:02.:13:05.

is -- but the kitchen sink at each other, different spins, use the

:13:06.:13:09.

length of the court, so often today we just see the whip, left and

:13:10.:13:19.

right. -- the width of the court. Radwanska feels very comfortable to

:13:20.:13:24.

move forward. Some excellent follies, but a couple of good passes

:13:25.:13:29.

therefrom Bacsinszky -- excellent volleys.

:13:30.:14:28.

Interesting to see that last shot choice from Bacsinszky, middle of

:14:29.:14:41.

the court and she chooses to take a backhand. She clearly favours that

:14:42.:14:42.

side. Such a well played point from

:14:43.:15:57.

Radwanska, pulling Bacsinszky left and right with authority. Then a

:15:58.:16:01.

delicate drop shot. That horse was way too far out in

:16:02.:16:13.

front. Right onto the sideline. The

:16:14.:16:48.

backhand can crack it open with one shot, great weight transfer, steps

:16:49.:16:51.

into it. Slipping right underneath the box.

:16:52.:17:12.

He is up on his feet again immediately.

:17:13.:17:46.

So, well executed, great accuracy and length on their shots, and that

:17:47.:18:07.

wanted the job. 23 shots! A strange coincidence, they both

:18:08.:18:29.

came back from 0-40. Now, love that combination,

:18:30.:19:19.

Radwanska with the backhand slice to the forehand of Bacsinszky. Calling

:19:20.:19:26.

upon her to create her own pace of that forehand wing, then had back

:19:27.:19:33.

and the line. -- had backhand up the line. So much variety from

:19:34.:19:36.

Radwanska. Both down 0-40, both get back, and

:19:37.:20:07.

both still lose their serves. I suspect we will see a lot of service

:20:08.:20:12.

breaks two days. Returned very well and both are used to getting their

:20:13.:20:22.

service broken. Great agility, great foot speed.

:20:23.:21:19.

That was very close. Yes, I'm not surprised she is challenging. I'd

:21:20.:21:32.

hate to call it myself. Oh... Write it was. -- correct it was.

:21:33.:22:06.

Oh, it's always special if you get the winner office smash. Bridging

:22:07.:22:15.

ski -- Bacsinszky didn't do much with that overhead and not only is

:22:16.:22:19.

Radwanska fast but she has great anticipation.

:22:20.:22:55.

Oh, dear. Radwanska holds to love and leads to- one. STUDIO: We will

:22:56.:23:05.

stay here on Centre Court at the moment but will round up what has

:23:06.:23:09.

been happening elsewhere, and one result to bring you, Jo-Wilfried

:23:10.:23:13.

Tsonga is out in the continuation of a match stopped because of bad light

:23:14.:23:18.

last night. Tsonga had to serve to stay in the match at 6-5 and

:23:19.:23:22.

couldn't do it so one game played and Sam Querrey goes through.

:23:23.:23:27.

Exactly a repeat of what happened to Tsonga in the French Open when he

:23:28.:23:32.

had to come out the next day and serve to stay in the match and lost

:23:33.:23:38.

that servers well. So a sad sight to see Jo-Wilfried Tsonga go out, but

:23:39.:23:45.

Sam Querrey is through to face Kevin Anderson, another big server. We can

:23:46.:23:50.

quickly update you on a couple of courts, this match is on BBC Two,

:23:51.:23:56.

Gael Monfils has broken back against Adrian Mannarino and Mannarino has

:23:57.:24:01.

just saved a set point. That is on BBC Two. On Court One, last year's

:24:02.:24:07.

runner-up Milos Raonic, 4-4, on serve against Ramos-Vinolas, our

:24:08.:24:13.

featured game on the Red Button. Back we go to Centre Court.

:24:14.:24:20.

COMMENTATOR: So Timea Bacsinszky coming back to serve. With so many

:24:21.:24:27.

British Olympic medallists in the Royal box, this is another Olympic

:24:28.:24:32.

medallist, she won silver in the women's doubles in Rio in

:24:33.:24:38.

partnership with Martina Hingis. Lost to the Russians.

:24:39.:25:31.

Just left a lovely play. So in control of this point, got

:25:32.:25:40.

Bacsinszky forward, then lobbed volley, back you go. So important

:25:41.:25:48.

for Radwanska to have her old racket that. It's like a magic wand for

:25:49.:25:49.

her. -- old racket back. It's painted black, the racket,

:25:50.:26:10.

because of course she is under contract to a different

:26:11.:26:13.

manufacturer. They cannot possibly have the sponsor's logo of the old

:26:14.:26:14.

racket. I was reading in the morning papers

:26:15.:26:26.

that Rory McIlroy is struggling to get used to a new set of golf clubs

:26:27.:26:31.

because his previous sponsor of course no longer makes golf club is.

:26:32.:26:34.

That is the one thing I don't think you can make a concession to, no

:26:35.:26:38.

matter how much they pay you. Clothes, shoes...

:26:39.:27:01.

Did you play with the same racket throughout your career? That's an

:27:02.:27:07.

interesting story. I did change but the markings and the colouring and

:27:08.:27:13.

everything was just like my old racket so when I took it back it

:27:14.:27:15.

felt very similar. Radwanska picking and plotting and

:27:16.:28:01.

really building the point, then hitting this approach very early.

:28:02.:28:36.

Must be an absolute relief if he finally break down the Radwanska

:28:37.:28:45.

defences. Hope for Bacsinszky to take that one on the rise, send the

:28:46.:28:49.

message that she will always be able to throw off that lob.

:28:50.:29:08.

Such a huge disparity in speed between the backhand of Bacsinszky

:29:09.:29:17.

and the forehand. That is Bacsinszky's coach. A huge reason

:29:18.:29:22.

why she has got to the elite part of the game.

:29:23.:29:43.

Oh, a corrected call by the line judge. And his correction is now

:29:44.:29:50.

being challenged by Bacsinszky. But he was right. He corrected

:29:51.:30:01.

himself. They will have to replay the point.

:30:02.:30:12.

One challenge left and just the fourth game.

:30:13.:30:30.

Come on, she deserves the clap for winning that game. Saving the break

:30:31.:30:44.

point. Eastern face. A hold each. Already the first four games have

:30:45.:30:45.

taken 22 minutes. So much crafting these shots. So

:30:46.:31:40.

much thinking. I can make it awkward for my opponent.

:31:41.:32:26.

Unusual unforced errors from Bacsinszky. I do not know a player

:32:27.:32:37.

on Tour that runs around their forehand more than Bacsinszky does.

:32:38.:32:49.

When you have the backhand like that, it makes sense. Much more

:32:50.:32:54.

technically sound than the forehand. That is a rare really poor shot from

:32:55.:33:25.

Radwanska. It caught the net max. You are being generous. Break point.

:33:26.:33:40.

Bacsinszky breaks again. That gets the clap.

:33:41.:33:56.

One or two unforced errors have been flown in from both of them.

:33:57.:34:04.

Radwanska, not the most important moment of her year, she is getting

:34:05.:34:08.

married in a few months, that will be the equivalent of a royal wedding

:34:09.:34:12.

in Poland because she is huge in Poland. The man in the white cap in

:34:13.:34:20.

the middle is her fiance. The gentleman leaning forward with the

:34:21.:34:26.

beard is hard physio whose name is utterly unpronounceable! How coaches

:34:27.:34:36.

on the left. -- her coach. I can just about get my tongue around her

:34:37.:34:43.

current's name. Her fiance started as hard-hitting partner. It is a big

:34:44.:34:52.

moment. More things to deal with this year for anger, the racket

:34:53.:34:59.

change and the right foot, missed a few tournaments in the clay-court

:35:00.:35:04.

season. Just has not had the solid same season. She ranked in the top

:35:05.:35:09.

ten consistently for the past six years. Number 10.

:35:10.:35:52.

Again, close call. Radwanska decides to go to Hawk-Eye this time. Wisely.

:35:53.:36:09.

Replay the point. Not enough on the return. Radwanska

:36:10.:36:55.

the middle of the court that up. A couple of backhand is later and she

:36:56.:37:00.

unloads at a beautiful angle. That grip is so western. You might

:37:01.:37:48.

even call it how iron. Hit the line. What happens when it hit backs the

:37:49.:37:52.

line it grips a little on the titanium that marks the court and

:37:53.:37:58.

stops... Quite often you see a player missed by me at or swinging

:37:59.:38:03.

too early. I guess we have to say that was an ace.

:38:04.:38:27.

Bacsinszky really starting to look comfortable on the squad. Has not

:38:28.:38:50.

played nearly as many matches on Centre Court, it can be

:38:51.:38:53.

intimidating. Radwanska was a finalist here in 2012. Other times

:38:54.:38:57.

the semifinalist. Radwanska immediately try something

:38:58.:39:16.

different, moves forward, because she is struggling to get the

:39:17.:39:23.

firepower. She definitely needs to get maudlin down her shot s,

:39:24.:39:24.

Radwanska. Radwanska's younger sister has

:39:25.:41:07.

played on the Tour but has been affected by injuries many times. I

:41:08.:41:13.

often think when I watch Aga playing, in my very younger days

:41:14.:41:20.

when I was playing tennis I used to play against the garage door run the

:41:21.:41:24.

ball keeps coming back, many people have a practice draw at their club,

:41:25.:41:31.

and she reminds me of that, because it keeps coming back against her.

:41:32.:41:37.

That is because of her defensive ability, or anticipation. She has

:41:38.:41:44.

quick feet. Soft hands. This ability to place the ball. In the right

:41:45.:41:58.

spot. High tennis IQ. Usually comes up with the rate shot at the right

:41:59.:42:06.

time. Knows her capabilities. The roof has stayed mercifully shut the

:42:07.:42:13.

role... Open, I should say, apart from the briefest of periods on

:42:14.:42:19.

Monday. Let us hope that continues to be the case in the second week.

:42:20.:42:20.

New balls. That is the most powerful shot on

:42:21.:42:50.

the court. Drive through the ball very flat.

:42:51.:43:39.

Really important game for Bacsinszky. She has the momentum.

:43:40.:43:51.

She is hitting with confidence. She cannot have a concentration lapse on

:43:52.:44:04.

her own serve. Wobbled a little bit in the smash earlier, she will be

:44:05.:44:13.

guide to have got that one away. That's the coach. So important in

:44:14.:44:20.

her comeback. Solid hold. Bad well-documented

:44:21.:45:00.

story how Bacsinszky was out for most of the Max seasons with various

:45:01.:45:06.

injuries and got the automated email to come and play the French

:45:07.:45:09.

qualifying and went back and played and decided she was going to play

:45:10.:45:13.

for herself, she was enjoying it again, passionate again, this coach

:45:14.:45:18.

made her believe she can get to the top of the game.

:45:19.:45:30.

Pausing in the corner. Makes all the difference in the world. She also

:45:31.:45:41.

discovered it was rather better than being a Hotel receptionist, which is

:45:42.:45:46.

what you was doing. Certainly the peers better. ?90,000 forgetting

:45:47.:45:47.

thus far. Her first career, as she calls it,

:45:48.:46:10.

getting to number 40 in the world, meeting it to the stage in a major

:46:11.:46:15.

only once. Since coming back it has been eked times. Such a better

:46:16.:46:16.

player. It is a total change. You were one

:46:17.:46:38.

of their teenage Feeney and it seems players reach their best when they

:46:39.:46:39.

are plus 30. Bacsinszky challenges the call. She

:46:40.:47:31.

better be right because if not she has got no more challenges left.

:47:32.:47:45.

Bacsinszky has no challenges remaining.

:47:46.:48:01.

Of course we saw with Fabio Fognini last night, he was out of challenges

:48:02.:48:07.

and he stopped playing, thinking I am going to challenge. Tough. A

:48:08.:48:14.

crucial moment against Andy Murray. Loose points for Radwanska. The

:48:15.:48:34.

chance of set point. Made it. Bacsinszky has the first

:48:35.:49:00.

set after 41 minutes. Yes, big celebration from Bacsinszky

:49:01.:49:21.

to take the opening set on Centre Court. We can show you what is

:49:22.:49:29.

happening elsewhere. Court Two, Angelique Kerber is in trouble.

:49:30.:49:35.

Shelby Rogers 4-3 up and serving against the world number one. That

:49:36.:49:46.

is on BBC Two. Court One, me was Raonic has taken the first set on

:49:47.:49:52.

the tie-break 7-3 and he has just broken. Last year's runner-up is

:49:53.:49:56.

going well. That is on the red button. Gael Monfils dropped the

:49:57.:50:08.

first set in the tie-break 7-3 to his fellow Frenchman. That is on the

:50:09.:50:11.

red button and the BBC Sport website. This one is on the red

:50:12.:50:23.

button and the BBC Sport website, the player coached by Pat Cash. She

:50:24.:50:29.

has such a big game, so good on the grass. She is in control. Back to

:50:30.:50:42.

Centre Court. The scoreboard outside Centre Court in the southern side of

:50:43.:50:46.

the grounds confirming that Bacsinszky, the 19th feed, as the

:50:47.:50:52.

first set against the ninth seed. Radwanska is going to have to up the

:50:53.:51:24.

level of her play. She is just not able to get Bacsinszky off balance

:51:25.:51:29.

enough. She tried to be disruptive with the different slices but she's

:51:30.:51:37.

really dialled them now. The returns have not had enough sting or depth

:51:38.:51:40.

from Radwanska. Too many of those. Radwanska has not

:51:41.:52:18.

had a lot of winners but she has very low count for mistakes.

:52:19.:52:37.

Another magnificent backhand and it is a love service game for their

:52:38.:52:47.

Swiss to start the second set. The key to me when you are showing

:52:48.:52:52.

unforced errors, you have to show the winners as well because

:52:53.:53:02.

Bacsinszky is plus four on winners to unforced errors. Plus four or

:53:03.:53:11.

-4-mac equals a differential of two games. Lost the last three games,

:53:12.:53:22.

Radwanska, need this one. Normally you might ask if she had to

:53:23.:54:00.

go for the line but then you remember who she is playing against

:54:01.:54:04.

and you feel you have to go for the line to hit a clean winner.

:54:05.:54:30.

Bacsinszky in the forehand corner playing backhands. So much more

:54:31.:54:39.

offences. I would like to see Radwanska hit it

:54:40.:55:07.

early like that, try someone approaches forward. Got to Jane

:55:08.:55:12.

something. The key in tennis is to rush your

:55:13.:55:45.

opponent and if you cannot hit extra hard try to hit it early. It gets

:55:46.:55:48.

the same effect. The first double fault of the match.

:55:49.:56:18.

Radwanska's third of the Championships. This is her third

:56:19.:56:23.

match. Thomas, coach, a little nervous.

:56:24.:56:38.

Very subtle, but that is a big point to hold. Trying to stop the momentum

:56:39.:56:47.

of Bacsinszky, and that is a free right there. A gift from Radwanska.

:56:48.:57:09.

Lovely skills again. So fun to watch. Taking all of the pace out of

:57:10.:57:21.

the drop volley. Graceful athlete. 72 mph second serve punished. Eight

:57:22.:58:01.

tenths back and clean winner of the match. All the way to the front

:58:02.:58:09.

foot. Coming through the body, through the legs.

:58:10.:59:09.

The third deuce of the game making this the longest game of the match

:59:10.:59:18.

so far. First serve crucial here. Radwanska making four of 11. She

:59:19.:59:22.

throws in a second serve. There is that anticipation you were

:59:23.:59:43.

talking about. It is moving at exactly the right moment. She holds

:59:44.:59:49.

it. Until Bacsinszky commits, and then she moves to her left.

:59:50.:00:30.

The timing and the balance, everything is just so much better on

:00:31.:00:40.

that backhand side. For Bacsinszky, the commitment and confidence as

:00:41.:00:53.

well. Getting up towards seven and a half minutes for this game so far.

:00:54.:00:54.

We are back in deuce. With that extreme forehand grip of

:00:55.:01:15.

Bacsinszky, so difficult to whip it offer very low ball, so that is a

:01:16.:01:22.

good approach from Radwanska. A little bit of slice.

:01:23.:02:09.

Had to work hard for it before, it was an important game, just to slow

:02:10.:02:22.

her down, Bacsinszky. Great scrambling from Radwanska, it is

:02:23.:02:25.

what she is so good at, keeping that point alive. Testing her opponent.

:02:26.:02:49.

Radwanska was a set down in the previous round. Two match points

:02:50.:02:56.

down in the second set tie-break, but came out on top in the end.

:02:57.:03:21.

Much better return. Just had something on it, too many of these

:03:22.:03:29.

returns have been sitting in the middle of the court, Bacsinszky can

:03:30.:03:32.

start taking control of the point. Boots! She has a wasp, or B.

:03:33.:04:26.

Hopefully not flying ant. Enough of those the other day for the whole

:04:27.:04:27.

year, I think. Two break points now for Radwanska.

:04:28.:05:02.

Radwanska 16 421 when coming forward. I like that ratio. Needs to

:05:03.:05:07.

look for that more frequently -- 16-21.

:05:08.:05:35.

There is the break, and Radwanska takes the lead in the second set to-

:05:36.:05:41.

one. Talking of flying ants, I feel sorry

:05:42.:05:59.

for the fellas because they take off to mate, then they made, and the

:06:00.:06:06.

guys die and the girls burrowing new nest and read a new generation, but

:06:07.:06:12.

a moment of pleasure and then goodbye! You are bringing all sorts

:06:13.:06:17.

of things to this match! By the way, I don't know if we have ants in the

:06:18.:06:23.

United States, I was looking about the other day. You just have

:06:24.:06:32.

rattlesnakes and alligators! I think one of the nice things about the

:06:33.:06:36.

women's game at the moment, we saw the Johanna Konta match was

:06:37.:06:43.

brilliant, big hitting. This is a subtler affair, gentler flavours,

:06:44.:06:50.

greater variety of play. Yes, I love that. Tennis has everything right

:06:51.:06:54.

now from so many different countries, so many different ages.

:06:55.:07:06.

Players in the mid-20s, Victoria Azarenka coming back, Venus

:07:07.:07:07.

Williams, 37. Lots of variety. 2-1, second set, having lost the

:07:08.:07:23.

first. She knew as soon as she had hinted

:07:24.:07:57.

it was never going to get over the net.

:07:58.:08:33.

That subtle drop shot Miss on the second point. That is a lot due to

:08:34.:08:42.

lack of confidence. Look at Radwanska's record here, just 13 in

:08:43.:08:46.

ten. For someone of her stature that is an astounding record.

:08:47.:09:09.

And halfway through the year, she is still ranked tenth in the world. On

:09:10.:09:18.

the road to Singapore, that is the basis of your ranking from January

:09:19.:09:25.

one of this year, and it is 40. Yes, Bacsinszky 19 in that department.

:09:26.:09:31.

The race to Singapore, to determine the top eight. The equivalent of the

:09:32.:09:39.

ATP Tour world finals that we have here in London at the O2 arena.

:09:40.:09:50.

Even the coaches have patches these days! For sponsors.

:09:51.:10:20.

Don't play the drop shot to the backhand! Playing to the well just a

:10:21.:10:31.

little too frequently. But Shinseki is off the mark quickly there. --

:10:32.:10:35.

Bacsinszky is off the mark. The chance to break back

:10:36.:11:07.

immediately, then. Radwanska trying to get Bacsinszky

:11:08.:11:48.

off-balance on that forehand. Got that one deep enough. Bacsinszky hip

:11:49.:11:58.

point on the forehand isn't as much out front and on her front foot as

:11:59.:12:00.

the backhand side. That's an example right there of

:12:01.:12:17.

using the whole court. Had she got the ball deep and Radwanska got it

:12:18.:12:21.

back... Once again, Radwanska having a real

:12:22.:13:08.

struggle to hold serve. Four deuces in her last service game, three now

:13:09.:13:10.

in this one. Radwanska smart to serve that second

:13:11.:13:58.

serve to the forehand of Bacsinszky. You cannot punish that side as much.

:13:59.:14:19.

Again, working really hard but managing to hold, and it is three

:14:20.:14:22.

games in a row for Radwanska. Thought that was one of the reasons

:14:23.:14:42.

the Azarenka- Watson match turned around yesterday that she started to

:14:43.:14:46.

attack Heather's forehand more in the second set. Getting more

:14:47.:14:51.

aggressive as well, but targeted on the other side.

:14:52.:15:15.

That is great racket work from Bacsinszky there. It was very low.

:15:16.:15:26.

Just got underneath it, up with Justin up top-spin to create the

:15:27.:15:28.

angle -- just enough top-spin. I thought for a moment she had made

:15:29.:16:04.

a mistake by going back to where Radwanska was but because it is such

:16:05.:16:12.

a short angle it was good enough. This soft on grass, it doesn't come

:16:13.:16:14.

through the court. It stopped. Oh! It is glorious to see this

:16:15.:16:50.

backhand in full flight. It just meant at the last second it was a

:16:51.:16:56.

little late, then quickly got that bracket through with the left hand.

:16:57.:18:02.

So Bacsinszky holds but Radwanska lead 3-2 with the break, second set.

:18:03.:18:13.

STUDIO: So little between these two on Centre Court. We will be back

:18:14.:18:16.

with this one but we are just going to drop in on court 12. This

:18:17.:18:22.

happened a short time ago, Gael Monfils, a great entertainer, every

:18:23.:18:27.

shot in the book, what about this? He hits a winner. Shall we call it

:18:28.:18:36.

the turnaround shot? That was a while ago. He broke serve in that

:18:37.:18:41.

game and has now battled serve in the second set so 4-4 but Mannarino

:18:42.:18:47.

having taken the first. That matches on the Red Button on the BBC Sport

:18:48.:18:51.

website. He is still smiling out there. It is on court 12. Here, we

:18:52.:18:57.

are heading back to this one. COMMENTATOR: Very much involved in

:18:58.:19:06.

this second set, Bacsinszky. Just the one break behind.

:19:07.:19:24.

These lovely images from our super slow camera. Beautifully

:19:25.:19:31.

illustrating their how she takes that backhand out in front of her.

:19:32.:19:43.

LAUGHTER. They've been watching too many flying ants! Thank you, ready

:19:44.:19:53.

to play, please, ladies and gentlemen.

:19:54.:20:10.

3-2, Radwanska serving but a set down.

:20:11.:20:21.

No doubt who is the more solid overhead. Solid in the forecourt, as

:20:22.:20:36.

well, with her volleys but also in her positioning up there, Radwanska.

:20:37.:21:39.

Another of those awkward bounces off the line. Just stops, titanium

:21:40.:21:49.

pigment. These days, not chalk. Dangerous going into the backhand

:21:50.:22:22.

side. So confident, so accurate. Anywhere on that wing.

:22:23.:22:38.

From 30-0 to 30-40, and another break back chance.

:22:39.:22:51.

This needs to be a first serve and go to the forehand here.

:22:52.:23:05.

Approach to the forehand much better. Well, Bacsinszky

:23:06.:23:17.

challenging, but I reckon detainee pigment flew up! Doesn't quite have

:23:18.:23:23.

the same ring as the famous Johnny Mac outburst. Nobody can argue with

:23:24.:23:30.

Hawk-Eye. Do you think John would have tried

:23:31.:23:50.

to argue with Hawk-Eye? Remember we had the old cyclops machine that

:23:51.:23:56.

used to call the service line only. The Stasi got down on both knees

:23:57.:24:02.

aren't prodded distant declared, made in Russia, it's lying it wasn't

:24:03.:24:08.

very good. Oh, that wasn't very good -- implying it wasn't very good.

:24:09.:24:15.

That opportunity could be very costly, could go for- two in the

:24:16.:24:24.

second set. Every Radwanska service game in this set has been a deuce

:24:25.:24:32.

game and deuce game. -- aid multiple deuce game.

:24:33.:25:10.

Radwanska uses her legs so well to absorb the pace. These punishing

:25:11.:25:17.

ground strokes coming at her. The support camp of Radwanska or

:25:18.:25:59.

standing up. She is playing much more aggression, more offensive

:26:00.:26:06.

minded, and this is very tough to time. Ball coming at you with a lot

:26:07.:26:08.

of pace, and just a dropped shot. Oh, Radwanska, you turned that point

:26:09.:26:55.

around with the little lob around the backhand wing.

:26:56.:27:09.

If you wonder whether Bacsinszky name comes from, her parents are

:27:10.:27:33.

Hungarian. Just like Johanna Konta. We could have an all Hungarian

:27:34.:27:42.

final! Certainly wide open, the draw. That bottom half looks a

:27:43.:27:49.

little stronger to me, Stepanenko, Konta, Azarenka, Halep. Love game

:27:50.:28:03.

for Bacsinszky as she continues to stay in touch. The lead is down to

:28:04.:28:12.

4-3. STUDIO: And we will be back on Centre Court in a moment but a lot

:28:13.:28:17.

is happening elsewhere, and on the outside courts, Court number three,

:28:18.:28:25.

CoCo Vandeweghe of the United States, the 24th seed outhit Alison

:28:26.:28:32.

Riske her countrywoman 6-2, 6-4. Big serve and forehand, obviously good

:28:33.:28:36.

friends. She is through and her coach will be delighted with that.

:28:37.:28:41.

She is through to the second week of the Championships. Very popular on

:28:42.:28:47.

all. And Petra Martic of Croatia has come through against a Zarina Diyas,

:28:48.:29:00.

76, six one. Martic of Croatia is through to the second week of

:29:01.:29:04.

Wimbledon. Big smiles out on court 18. We can update you on what is

:29:05.:29:11.

happening on court two, number one seed Angelique Kerber was a break

:29:12.:29:15.

down in the second set having lost the opening set to Shelby Rogers.

:29:16.:29:19.

She has just broken back and if you want to watch that match, it is on

:29:20.:29:27.

BBC Two. But here, we are heading back to Centre COMMENTATOR:

:29:28.:29:40.

Bacsinszky has had the trainer out just puts on tape over her right

:29:41.:29:47.

angle -- ankle. You can see that little bit of brown tape over the

:29:48.:29:51.

sock. I don't think it is anything of any great significance. Radwanska

:29:52.:29:59.

serving with new balls. Makes it look so easy, picking up a

:30:00.:30:31.

bit of grass. One two divots coming up. The shoes create divots. If the

:30:32.:30:41.

ball hits that, it will have a very uneven bounce.

:30:42.:30:50.

It has been so hot. The grass has taken a beating. That is why it

:30:51.:31:03.

needs a day off tomorrow. It will be a day off for the ground staff.

:31:04.:31:16.

Another one. Yes, smiles all round in the crowd. Both players move so

:31:17.:31:33.

well. Such an are set to be able to hit an offensive shot in a defensive

:31:34.:31:39.

position. That little applause from Radwanska.

:31:40.:32:15.

The crowd really enjoying this contest. It is not just about power,

:32:16.:32:35.

it is about exploiting the other player's weaknesses, movement.

:32:36.:32:41.

Trying to get the point through disruption. Radwanska has been to

:32:42.:32:54.

the net on 31 points and won 22 of them. Surely the secret of success

:32:55.:32:58.

for her. Such a difference if she can get the

:32:59.:34:06.

ball to Bacsinszky's forehand. Extreme winners off of the backhand.

:34:07.:34:17.

Serving to stay in the second set. Brilliant bit of fielding.

:34:18.:34:55.

The first ace of the match for Bacsinszky. Only her fourth of the

:34:56.:35:00.

Championships. Cannot save Radwanska. How many

:35:01.:35:44.

times do we see Radwanska in a defensive position? She gets that

:35:45.:35:47.

lob up so close to the baseline and restarts the point.

:35:48.:36:26.

That was a Radwanska point of view have ever seen one. Get in trouble

:36:27.:36:32.

on the return and just dropped it Andrew Bacsinszky forward and then

:36:33.:36:34.

the lob. Measures it perfectly. A squeal from Bacsinszky. She keeps

:36:35.:36:59.

the second set life and forces Radwanska...

:37:00.:37:11.

It is that old serve it out question. Can you serve it out? She

:37:12.:37:19.

has had the schemes on her set, Radwanska. Bacsinszky has had two

:37:20.:37:28.

chances to break back. Point by point, is that the old cliche?

:37:29.:37:35.

Absolutely. If it is anybody who needs to get first serves in it is

:37:36.:37:40.

Radwanska. She does not have the pace on the second serve and it is

:37:41.:37:44.

so adaptable. She usually gets a high number of her first serves in.

:37:45.:37:58.

The second serve is 45%. Often times it is also her accuracy on the first

:37:59.:38:04.

serve. Mixing it up to the different sports, getting close lines.

:38:05.:38:08.

Badlands guy has the natural slice which is effective on the grass. She

:38:09.:38:18.

needs to stay aggressive minded. Trying to serve their second set

:38:19.:38:19.

out. The instant apology from Bacsinszky.

:38:20.:39:08.

That was a totally mis-hit drive volley. Sometimes the mis-hits on

:39:09.:39:13.

grass can be the most effective. Bacsinszky challenging the call. The

:39:14.:39:44.

ball was called in. Absolutely crucial, this. It did just find the

:39:45.:39:52.

sideline. Bacsinszky has one challenge remaining. It would not

:39:53.:39:58.

have been an easy smash for Radwanska. Got the serve to the

:39:59.:40:09.

forehand and got the cheap point. Rather gifting this game away.

:40:10.:40:57.

Radwanska has two said points to level the match.

:40:58.:41:20.

It is one set all after an hour and 33 minutes. Radwanska wins the

:41:21.:41:28.

second set 6-4. All to play for on Centre Court. We

:41:29.:41:54.

will be right back with it. Milos Raonic 2-0 set up. That is the

:41:55.:42:03.

feature match on the red button. Last year's finalist going well.

:42:04.:42:11.

Shelby Rogers of the United States is the second break up against the

:42:12.:42:16.

player in your picture, the top seed, Angelique Kerber. She has

:42:17.:42:23.

broken back. Rogers has a point to take this into a second set

:42:24.:42:33.

tie-break. That is on BBC Two. Henman Hill is very busy once again.

:42:34.:42:39.

A wonderful order of play on Centre Court. Following this match there is

:42:40.:42:43.

Novak Djokovic and then Roger Federer. We have been spoiled with

:42:44.:42:48.

the weather. We have only had a little bit of drizzle. Play going on

:42:49.:42:53.

on all of the courts. The junior events are getting under way and the

:42:54.:42:58.

doubles. A lot to get through. A busy schedule for the tournament

:42:59.:43:03.

referees. Lovely scenes at Wimbledon, everybody enjoying the

:43:04.:43:06.

weather and the tennis. Let us rejoin Centre Court.

:43:07.:43:16.

One set all. Bacsinszky has asked for the trainer to return. Right on

:43:17.:43:32.

cue. Is it still the right ankle? Feeling a little bit in the thighs.

:43:33.:43:43.

So much demand on the lower body to get lower on this surface to absorb

:43:44.:43:48.

the power and be ready for an awkward bounce, uneven bounce. The

:43:49.:43:56.

first couple of days of practice you are extra so. In the glutes and in

:43:57.:44:04.

the thighs. Can I play devil's advocate? If somebody turns an ankle

:44:05.:44:09.

or has an injury, I am not talking something horrendous, it seems to me

:44:10.:44:15.

fair enough, but if you are a bit tired in your glutes, why should you

:44:16.:44:21.

be allowed to have the trainer? Isn't your physical preparation and

:44:22.:44:26.

how strong you are part of the game? There used to be a rule in place

:44:27.:44:30.

that if you had cramps you could not get treated. Bacsinszky will say

:44:31.:44:36.

that this is a strain on so she will probably want to get some tape on it

:44:37.:44:45.

to give it some support. Radwanska will go out and stay warm, Steelers.

:44:46.:44:52.

Get a few serves. She played a phenomenal second set. She employed

:44:53.:45:01.

some better tactics. More offensive, ten winners as opposed to five the

:45:02.:45:09.

--s. Coming to the net every opportunity. Her court positioning

:45:10.:45:16.

was better. Aga has such good hands, she is able to absorb the base.

:45:17.:45:22.

Bacsinszky is receiving medical treatment. She has three minutes to

:45:23.:45:32.

treat. The umpire says this period has started. A little bit of

:45:33.:45:42.

bandaging is going on. First the spray goes on, it is sticky so what

:45:43.:45:49.

comes next will stick. I can always remember even at Roland Garros

:45:50.:45:58.

playing Mary Pierce had some treatment and got one of the ball

:45:59.:46:02.

boys out and had a little hit. The French crowd loved it. Suddenly the

:46:03.:46:07.

French favourite was no longer the code's favourite. Mary is here.

:46:08.:46:17.

Trevor McDonald. He loves his sport. He was at Lord's rhythm of the

:46:18.:46:31.

cricket. Merry here working for our colleagues on BBC Radio 5 live with

:46:32.:46:38.

her excellent commentary team. I was listening to them on the Andy Murray

:46:39.:46:48.

much driving home last night. Lord King. The governor of the Bank of

:46:49.:47:03.

England, former. Yes, a cross between water poll and tennis. I

:47:04.:47:18.

think they want to be on TV! I am told... I have never played it, I am

:47:19.:47:24.

told water polo is absolutely vicious, there is a lot goes on

:47:25.:47:28.

under the water. That you cannot see. Imagine trying to stay afloat

:47:29.:47:33.

for 45 minutes or an error with people pulling on you or scratching

:47:34.:47:41.

you. The last bit of tape goes around Bacsinszky's leg. Some going

:47:42.:47:51.

on the front portion of the thigh, the crisscross version, to try to

:47:52.:47:56.

unload where she feels a bit of a strain. Both players played just one

:47:57.:48:05.

grass court prep tournament, losing in their opening-round in

:48:06.:48:12.

Eastbourne. A couple of tablets for Bacsinszky. Playing their way into

:48:13.:48:16.

this tournament into form, Bacsinszky getting into the

:48:17.:48:23.

semi-finals of the French Open. That is more appropriate at where.

:48:24.:48:37.

You see a delay of 7.5 minutes. Will that have affected Radwanska's

:48:38.:48:57.

rhythm? Really tough to pick here because

:48:58.:49:34.

they have played twice, Bacsinszky has won twice, both on hard courts.

:49:35.:49:38.

Radwanska has had the better results at Wimbledon. Semifinalist a couple

:49:39.:49:44.

of times and finalist ones. So accurate with that backhand. In

:49:45.:51:20.

early take-back, great transfer, and coils the shoulders and hips.

:51:21.:52:01.

Three slices in a row. You will not see that on any other surface. This

:52:02.:52:16.

surface is so low. A chance for Radwanska to break straightaway in

:52:17.:52:17.

this deciding set. A huge screen from rats --

:52:18.:53:18.

Bacsinszky. A huge point, especially for Bacsinszky. Slices turning the

:53:19.:53:24.

demand on the left side. Getting down time and again. 27 shot rally.

:53:25.:53:28.

The longest of the match. Not up, surely. Double bounce. You

:53:29.:53:54.

have a frame, you might as well use it. There was not much string on

:53:55.:53:59.

that last shot of Bacsinszky. Need off of the end of the racket.

:54:00.:54:31.

A second break point. Much better returning from Radwanska in the

:54:32.:55:19.

second set and into the third, compared to the first. Hitting with

:55:20.:55:22.

more conviction. Radwanska gets the perfect start to

:55:23.:55:52.

the final set. The coach on the left will be

:55:53.:56:15.

thrilled and fiance in the wet -- whitecaps. Radwanska is beginning to

:56:16.:56:20.

wear down Bacsinszky mentally and physically. It is like going against

:56:21.:56:26.

a wall, it is so tough coming up with winners against her.

:56:27.:56:35.

Consistent. She will hit hard, fast and low and throw in a slice. Deep

:56:36.:56:38.

and then short. The ball came much slower than she

:56:39.:57:11.

thought. I do not think she was saying what a nice afternoon it is!

:57:12.:57:27.

I do not think it was any of the four official Swiss languages,

:57:28.:57:42.

French, German, Italian, Raman. Roger can speak all four. She better

:57:43.:57:51.

get her focus back. That is two backhands from a neutral position in

:57:52.:57:52.

the court in the net. Just a little lull, you sense, in

:57:53.:58:20.

the match, it sometimes happens with a long match, the start of a new

:58:21.:58:25.

set. It is like rebooting your computer. So it is running perfectly

:58:26.:58:28.

again. The best and the best there are no

:58:29.:58:52.

lulls or the art short, they recognise it and get back to work. I

:58:53.:59:03.

doubt Roger has had a lull in many of his matches. That is incredible.

:59:04.:59:13.

Could anybody else hit that shot? This is just knowing what you are

:59:14.:59:30.

capable of unjust that the last second she was late so she

:59:31.:59:36.

improvised. Yes, got so much side spin on the ball. Final set.

:59:37.:00:00.

And the body language reflects that, getting very frustrated with

:00:01.:00:16.

herself. She stole that point. The overhead

:00:17.:00:50.

of Bacsinszky has not been good all match, and another one is missed.

:00:51.:00:55.

But she had the easy put away ball and did nothing with it. 0- two,

:00:56.:01:04.

0-30. This is crisis time for the Swiss.

:01:05.:01:12.

This is what Radwanska will do - she will get so many balls back and

:01:13.:01:21.

play, start to extract the errors, her opponent. To overplay and get

:01:22.:01:28.

frustrated. -- her opponent will start to overplay.

:01:29.:02:01.

Oh, another one! The break of serve to love. And the odds-on Radwanska

:02:02.:02:14.

are shortening by the second. She has just gotten under the skin

:02:15.:02:35.

of Bacsinszky. She has gotten in her mind on these overheads. She let

:02:36.:02:43.

that one drop too low, overthinking it now. So much fun to watch

:02:44.:02:52.

Radwanska, because she has worked her way into this match, fought her

:02:53.:02:57.

way out of that second set. It was a couple of years ago that Andy Murray

:02:58.:03:04.

said that he loved to watch Radwanska play because of her

:03:05.:03:06.

intelligence, because of her variety. Andy uses a lot of the same

:03:07.:03:13.

shots. The backhand slice in particular. He uses the one hand,

:03:14.:03:19.

just as Radwanska does. Change pace to draw the opponent forward where

:03:20.:03:23.

they don't feel comfortable, moving into the forecourt. Then the odd

:03:24.:03:30.

drop shot. Great defensive skills. They would make a good mixed doubles

:03:31.:03:36.

team, wouldn't they? You were a mixed doubles champion here with

:03:37.:03:37.

your brother, of course. All was a little delay after three

:03:38.:03:55.

games, because you are not allowed back in after the first game of set.

:03:56.:04:21.

67 mph second serve. Served one at 63, I can tell you, against Kristyna

:04:22.:04:31.

McHale. Excellent timing and footwork. To

:04:32.:05:24.

get the right spacing between you and the ball.

:05:25.:06:06.

No, getting desperate. Trying to come up with the almost impossible

:06:07.:06:09.

shots. Five games in a row for Radwanska.

:06:10.:06:49.

As we come up towards the two-hour mark, one player now totally in

:06:50.:06:53.

command. Really impressive, the weather Radwanska has been able to

:06:54.:06:58.

turn this match around. She was outhit completely in the first set.

:06:59.:07:12.

Radwanska starting to get more depth on her shots, using the slice more

:07:13.:07:22.

effectively, started playing the Bacsinszky forehand more frequently.

:07:23.:07:44.

When you look at Radwanska's results, it's at Wimbledon that she

:07:45.:07:50.

has had their best results by far in any of the majors. The US Open, she

:07:51.:07:56.

has only been to the fourth round. Never even to the quarterfinals.

:07:57.:08:05.

Did she make that? UMPIRE: Miss Radwanska challenges the call. The

:08:06.:08:18.

ball was called in. It is at the far end from us. Oh, that is missed by a

:08:19.:08:27.

country mile. Not a good call. She has hardly hit a smash in court all

:08:28.:08:33.

match. One, I think. We reach the two-hour mark.

:08:34.:09:01.

For Bacsinszky, I'm afraid, the end is nigh. Great competitor. She will

:09:02.:09:11.

never give up, Bacsinszky, and she will try to problem solve, but

:09:12.:09:16.

Radwanska seems to have all the answers, the consistency, terrific

:09:17.:09:18.

movement today. That is getting through perhaps on

:09:19.:09:31.

one of those divots. And almost certainly now, Radwanska

:09:32.:09:54.

looking at a fourth-round encounter against two-time Grand Slam champion

:09:55.:10:01.

Svetlana Kuznetsova, who has won both the French and US Opens in her

:10:02.:10:07.

career. And that will be a contrast, because Kuznetsova will have the

:10:08.:10:14.

power. Two reasons why grass really suits Agnieszka Radwanska - one, she

:10:15.:10:17.

is able to use that power against her opponent. And second, because

:10:18.:10:24.

she has the subtle skills with a little slice that keeps the ball low

:10:25.:10:31.

on a grass court... Absolutely, that ability to improvise. Such great

:10:32.:10:38.

hand skills. And her serve as that bit of slice to move through the

:10:39.:10:47.

court. You know, Radwanska, at 28 years old, has always been one of

:10:48.:10:50.

those players you feel like, can she break through and win a major? Well,

:10:51.:11:00.

this would be it, a wide-open drawl. -- a wide-open draw.

:11:01.:11:19.

Oh, perfect! I love the little pop from Radwanska after she played that

:11:20.:11:26.

drop shot, encouraging it to go over the net.

:11:27.:11:44.

Absolutely flying now, Agnieszka Radwanska. That's the best I think

:11:45.:11:55.

that she has played all year. The finals of Sydney at the beginning of

:11:56.:12:02.

the year, not much -- improved much since then.

:12:03.:12:18.

Always a little bit of a let down when a third set goes very rapidly

:12:19.:12:28.

after to make very competitive sets. All credit to Radwanska for taking

:12:29.:12:31.

this match by the scruff of the neck.

:12:32.:13:35.

Not that time. Too much air under this drop shot, too high. A chance

:13:36.:13:57.

for Bacsinszky, then, to get on the scoreboard, at least, in the final

:13:58.:13:58.

set. UMPIRE: New balls, please. Tracy,

:13:59.:14:29.

were you in Paris when she was down in the final set and then won?

:14:30.:14:34.

Surely, it can't happen again. They have new balls to serve with.

:14:35.:14:44.

That should help Bacsinszky's served to move through the court quicker.

:14:45.:14:48.

Not so ruffed up. She keeps using those shorter balls,

:14:49.:15:10.

even if they are not perfectly executed drop shots, if they stay

:15:11.:15:13.

low, Bacsinszky is having a difficult time digging them out.

:15:14.:15:50.

Oh, yes! Maybe another lob was coming, she has been so successful.

:15:51.:16:06.

Just an exquisite pass. That was well long. Bacsinszky

:16:07.:16:42.

asking... The shake of the head. Played so well for the first two

:16:43.:16:47.

sets, but now facing three match points.

:16:48.:18:06.

That's why! And Radwanska is through to the second week at Wimbledon. --

:18:07.:18:31.

that is wide! What a turnaround. Totally overpowered in that first

:18:32.:18:37.

set will stop the second and third sets had a grand total of five

:18:38.:18:43.

unforced errors. Her movement was impeccable, and her accuracy was

:18:44.:18:47.

spot on. So much variety, and broke Bacsinszky down. Yes, the power of

:18:48.:18:53.

Bacsinszky was the decisive factor in the first set, but the

:18:54.:19:02.

consistency, the tennis know-how of Radwanska slowly turned it around,

:19:03.:19:08.

and by the end, enabled the Polish player to take total command. She is

:19:09.:19:11.

through now to play Svetlana Kuznetsova on Monday, to my my, the

:19:12.:19:23.

best day of the championship, when every fourth-round match will be

:19:24.:19:29.

played on Monday before we get into the next round of the women's on

:19:30.:19:36.

Tuesday. In this wide-open field, anything is possible, Tracey.

:19:37.:19:41.

Absolutely. Radwanska's best chance was in 2013. She is putting herself

:19:42.:19:52.

in the heart of the equation now, because she played an excellent

:19:53.:19:58.

match today. She wouldn't be the first champion to have been match

:19:59.:20:05.

point down in the early rounds. Two hours and ten minutes was the actual

:20:06.:20:11.

time of the match, and the score, 3-6, 6-4, 6-1.

:20:12.:20:25.

Timea Bacsinszky will stay out there for a little longer to sign a few

:20:26.:20:31.

more autographs. The ground staff are out there repairing some of

:20:32.:20:37.

those divots. That is confirmation of the scoreline. And right now,

:20:38.:20:44.

Agnieszka is going to talk to Lee McKenzie.

:20:45.:20:47.

Congratulations, we always knew this match would be packed with finesse,

:20:48.:20:51.

and it was lovely to watch - how were you a note after dropping the

:20:52.:20:56.

first set? I expected a lot of tricky shots from her, and a lot of

:20:57.:20:58.

entertaining rallies. I am just very happy that I could

:20:59.:21:10.

come back and that the second set was tight. The third set, I was

:21:11.:21:14.

really playing my game, trying to be more aggressive with my serve. How

:21:15.:21:19.

good does it feel when you have completed the first week of

:21:20.:21:22.

Wimbledon and you know you are into the second week and there is more

:21:23.:21:26.

opportunity to come? It is a great opportunity to be in the second week

:21:27.:21:30.

of a Grand Slam, especially here, so I am really happy. I am going to

:21:31.:21:34.

enjoy, and I am trying to do everything in my power to do another

:21:35.:21:40.

quarterfinal here. Next up, you have Svetlana Kuznetsova, whom you play

:21:41.:21:44.

20 times, including twice here, it is currently 1-1 on grass - with

:21:45.:21:49.

your game, are you confident you can beat her? She has been playing good

:21:50.:21:55.

tennis, and she has had a really good season. I think I will have

:21:56.:21:59.

nothing to lose. She is a great player, a great Champ, and we have

:22:00.:22:03.

played against each other so many times. Another match not less than

:22:04.:22:09.

two hours! Thank you very much. SUE BARKER: Well, she just got better

:22:10.:22:13.

and better in that match, and after such a roller-coaster year, it is

:22:14.:22:18.

wonderful to see Agnieszka Radwanska back to her best. She is such a

:22:19.:22:21.

great mover and competitor, and she proved that today. She is always a

:22:22.:22:27.

threat in a Grand Slam. A former finalist here, but that will be a

:22:28.:22:32.

tough match against Kuznetsova. Two of the most experienced players left

:22:33.:22:37.

in the draw. And we will just update you with what is happening

:22:38.:22:43.

elsewhere: Milos Raonic is serving as well, he actually has match point

:22:44.:22:50.

to go through, winning 7-6, 6-4, 6-4 Albert Ramos-Vinolas. That just

:22:51.:22:56.

happened just a moment ago over on Court Number One. So, a comfortable

:22:57.:23:00.

victory, straight sets, the last year's finalist, the big server from

:23:01.:23:07.

Canada, Milos Raonic. And a couple of updates as well, Angelique Kerber

:23:08.:23:11.

was one set and one break down to American Shelby Rodgers, but she

:23:12.:23:16.

fought back. She looks to be on serve here. That match is live on

:23:17.:23:27.

BBC Two, if you want to watch that. And the match we were watching

:23:28.:23:35.

earlier, Gael Monfils, always the great entertainer, against Adrian

:23:36.:23:43.

Mannarino. It is Gael Monfils who leads to - one against Adrian

:23:44.:23:46.

Mannarino. That is on the website and on the red button, as is this

:23:47.:23:51.

one. Tomas Berdych has taken the first set against bed with a row,

:23:52.:23:54.

and he is a break of serve up in the second set. It is funny who you see

:23:55.:24:02.

watching the matches from up above. There is Roger Federer. You wouldn't

:24:03.:24:05.

believe he has a match coming up later on, on Centre Court, would

:24:06.:24:11.

you? He's just relaxing, watching, catching up with friends. At 35,

:24:12.:24:15.

Roger Federer playing the best tennis of his life. And we look

:24:16.:24:18.

forward to seeing him on Centre Court a little later. And we have

:24:19.:24:26.

made our way down to Centre Court. Boris Becker is with me. Roger

:24:27.:24:31.

Federer, he is so relaxed, isn't he? You wouldn't think he has an

:24:32.:24:36.

important match coming up. Years playing after Novak, so he has some

:24:37.:24:40.

time on his hands was that he has done this 90 times. If one player

:24:41.:24:44.

knows how to prepare, it is Roger Federer. There is no reason to worry

:24:45.:24:53.

about him. Lots of players really concentrate before a match, get in

:24:54.:24:59.

the zone, but not Roger. It is another two hours at least before he

:25:00.:25:04.

get ready. He will mingle with the coaching team, try to find a

:25:05.:25:08.

concentration to play the match. Talking of concentration, that was

:25:09.:25:11.

pretty impressive from Radwanska, wasn't it? She has had a really bad

:25:12.:25:15.

year, but sometimes when you come back to a place where you have won

:25:16.:25:20.

matches, it suddenly all comes together. Very much so. You remember

:25:21.:25:24.

the good times you have had on this court, and she is a veteran. Again,

:25:25.:25:30.

she always finds a way to come back into the match. I respect her a lot.

:25:31.:25:35.

She doesn't have a huge serve, but a strong mind, very strategic in how

:25:36.:25:40.

she prepares the points. On grass, that get you far. It certainly does.

:25:41.:25:46.

Next, it is Novak Djokovic on Centre Court, and he has a new coach,

:25:47.:25:51.

former Wimbledon champion Andre Agassi, and he has been talking to

:25:52.:25:56.

Jonathan. I bet you never thought then, with

:25:57.:25:59.

your long hair and baseball cap, that you would be back as a coach.

:26:00.:26:04.

No, it is there enough. You never know where life will take you.

:26:05.:26:10.

Novak, he is a champion and he knows what he is doing. You have to find

:26:11.:26:16.

advice that makes him the best that he is, give him some tools. It is

:26:17.:26:20.

not about full-time or teaching him how to win. My goodness, we have

:26:21.:26:25.

seen him do that plenty of times. It is about finding the parts that help

:26:26.:26:29.

him feel clear so that he is able to execute his best game, and with

:26:30.:26:37.

conviction. He is an easy guide to coach, in that respect. What is the

:26:38.:26:41.

one thing, if there is one thing, that you are trying to get him to

:26:42.:26:48.

do? Listen, clarity, and fight. To believe that good things are ahead,

:26:49.:26:53.

that you are going to get better every day if we fight and we start

:26:54.:26:57.

thinking about the other side of the court a little more. There is a

:26:58.:27:02.

human odour there that has to be you, you know what I mean? That is

:27:03.:27:08.

what I like to see with Novak. When he is out there feeling clear, he is

:27:09.:27:15.

remarkable. He has Murray as a rival for the title, Rafael Nadal and

:27:16.:27:21.

Roger Federer. In the year of your last line slam title, he won his

:27:22.:27:26.

verse. -- your last Grand Slam title. Can you believe he is still

:27:27.:27:30.

coming here as many people's favourite? No question. To see Roger

:27:31.:27:37.

doing what he is doing, it is inexplicable. He doesn't surprise me

:27:38.:27:43.

any more. He constantly amazes me, and it is great for the game to see

:27:44.:27:47.

these guys going after reach other. Hopefully we will see at this

:27:48.:27:51.

fortnight, where you have those guys pushing at the end. John McEnroe has

:27:52.:27:57.

joined us. He will put the fightback in Djokovic, because something has

:27:58.:28:00.

been missing this year. You saw it with Andy, after he fought so hard

:28:01.:28:06.

to reach number one. And then with Novak, the same. He is doing

:28:07.:28:15.

something that no one had done since Rod Labour in 1969, holding all four

:28:16.:28:19.

Grand Slams. We are all human, you take a step back, you say, wow, can

:28:20.:28:23.

I enjoyed this a little bit? Sometimes you do that - you have

:28:24.:28:29.

somewhat of a let down, and you think you can show up at Wimbledon

:28:30.:28:32.

and pull it back together. He was in the finals of the open. He was

:28:33.:28:39.

outplayed in the beginning. So you figure, OK, I will come back there.

:28:40.:28:43.

And then when it happens four times in a row, you think, we will have to

:28:44.:28:51.

re-evaluate. Bringing Andre Agassi in, so late in his career, he loves

:28:52.:28:55.

to discuss tactics and he will sit there for hours, and he will give

:28:56.:29:00.

him what he wants. I think he will give more information than Novak is

:29:01.:29:05.

used to getting, but it is about them feeling each other out and

:29:06.:29:12.

getting to know each other. You saw the pressure he was under to try and

:29:13.:29:16.

win that French Open and hold all four. An incredible amount of

:29:17.:29:19.

pressure in the weeks leading up, because he won three in a row. It

:29:20.:29:26.

didn't matter about other tournaments, it was about the French

:29:27.:29:31.

Open. Once the French Open started, it was almost a relief, because it

:29:32.:29:37.

was now or never. To get through the tournament for him was a lifelong

:29:38.:29:40.

dream come true. Most other people would take a year off.

:29:41.:29:54.

A big ovation for the three-time champion, up against Ernests Gulbis.

:29:55.:30:07.

Unorthodox, is that how you would describe it? Not quite as much as

:30:08.:30:15.

Fognini, but they have known each other since they were kids and he's

:30:16.:30:22.

not going to pull a fast one on Novak. It will be about how much

:30:23.:30:32.

Gulbis wanted. He's a really strong guy. Has got real firepower. You've

:30:33.:30:43.

got to watch over him. He beat Del Potro, that is a big one. He's had

:30:44.:30:51.

the injuries, his ranking has dropped down, he's not won any

:30:52.:30:55.

matches until here, but against Del Potro it was one great shot after

:30:56.:31:06.

another. He was not expecting much. He had three matches at Roehampton.

:31:07.:31:11.

Get to the third round, please this amazing ground against Del Potro and

:31:12.:31:16.

he thinks, I'm back. And that the dangerous part because he is a

:31:17.:31:18.

different type of player, has a different family background, so if

:31:19.:31:25.

he's on it, if he's confident, he's a dangerous opponent. Perfect

:31:26.:31:33.

example. The players need to come from circumstances. Novak grew up,

:31:34.:31:39.

there are bombs being dropped around, that toughens you up. The

:31:40.:31:43.

Russians had to leave because there's no money. Whereas you've got

:31:44.:31:50.

a guy with the complete opposite. His father is one of the wealthiest

:31:51.:31:54.

guys in Latvia. There's not a lot of hunger. The Gulf Stream was waiting

:31:55.:32:02.

at the end of the tournament, go off on a private plane and stay at the

:32:03.:32:07.

Ritz Carlton. So you've not seen him dig deep in matches but this will

:32:08.:32:11.

certainly get him back in the mix. No better place to do it than here.

:32:12.:32:22.

His ranking had dropped down but he's quite a character, as Lee

:32:23.:32:33.

McKenzie found out. How much are you enjoying the Wimbledon experience?

:32:34.:32:42.

I'm enjoying it. I've not won a match in 13 months. It has been

:32:43.:32:51.

nice. But Gulbis is not known as a great grass court player. Del Potro

:32:52.:32:58.

is a really good grass court player, in my opinion. I'm much more

:32:59.:33:06.

confident than I was before. Does this make you appreciate tennis when

:33:07.:33:10.

you've been through everything you've been through, the fact that

:33:11.:33:20.

you love it? My physio told me he had never seen me as motivated as I

:33:21.:33:25.

am right now. It has been difficult. You appreciate it a lot more and

:33:26.:33:33.

this is the place I want to be. You've got Novak Djokovic next. You

:33:34.:33:37.

used a hit with him. You know him well. How big of test is it going to

:33:38.:33:42.

be? It's a huge test but it's also a big test for. He was struggling this

:33:43.:33:52.

season. If I struggle, I go back to being 600 in the world. If he

:33:53.:33:55.

struggles he goes back to being number two Mac. It has not been easy

:33:56.:34:00.

for him so I guess it is best for both of us. He's got a big serve and

:34:01.:34:09.

a big forehand. He's tall, he's not afraid to use it, he's not afraid of

:34:10.:34:14.

the big courts. It takes a special character to feel comfortable and he

:34:15.:34:21.

has that character. He's going to serve 20 aces, he's going to have a

:34:22.:34:24.

lot of winners, the question of the unforced errors. He is a player like

:34:25.:34:38.

Fabio Fognini who looks for the more difficult shots. The forehand, it

:34:39.:34:51.

seems like he has streamed out his take-back. I don't know what he was

:34:52.:34:56.

thinking when he was trying to pull this off but it seems unorthodox.

:34:57.:35:01.

You mentioned the serve. He's a strong guy and if he gets that first

:35:02.:35:05.

serve going he's going to be dangerous. Having big serve can get

:35:06.:35:13.

you so many cheap points. This is grass court... What does Boris know

:35:14.:35:19.

about that? This is a fast court. Whoever said it was a slow court was

:35:20.:35:25.

wrong. Whoever serves well is always in the driving seat. He's playing a

:35:26.:35:32.

great return. He is playing the greatest returner who ever lived. My

:35:33.:35:38.

last match at Wimbledon was against Agassi. I had the fortune to play

:35:39.:35:50.

Connors, who was amazing. This guy is taller, he's got more reach, he

:35:51.:35:57.

can be aggressive, which he's done more later in his career, or

:35:58.:36:07.

defensive. Either way, he's awesome. You've seen him in the amount of

:36:08.:36:10.

training he puts in. He gets impositions that don't seem

:36:11.:36:15.

possible. Most others would hurt their legs if they tried to get to

:36:16.:36:18.

the bowls that he gets too. He does a lot of working out. Usually he

:36:19.:36:27.

would not leave one stone unturned. I think he's got his Mojo back. I

:36:28.:36:34.

feel like he put his head back to where he was. Now it's about work

:36:35.:36:48.

and practising every week. It has been a roller-coaster year for him.

:36:49.:36:52.

Looked like he was getting good again and then another bad match.

:36:53.:36:58.

Yes, you thought he was going to win Rome. We were concerned in the third

:36:59.:37:05.

set against Dominic Thiem in the French, I could not remember the

:37:06.:37:10.

last time that happened. Obviously, your head needs to be into it,

:37:11.:37:16.

especially the way that Nadal and Federer have been playing. He's

:37:17.:37:20.

doing some target practice on you guys, he is serving. It is also,

:37:21.:37:25.

when he says it is not about winning, it's almost like it's not

:37:26.:37:38.

so important to him. I don't know how true that is. I think sometimes

:37:39.:37:50.

people misinterpret it about not loving tennis. Of course he wants to

:37:51.:37:55.

win. They've called time so thank you. They are on their way to the

:37:56.:38:01.

commentary box. Andrew Castle is waiting for them there. The first

:38:02.:38:08.

Saturday of the championships. A day off tomorrow, and a chance to the

:38:09.:38:15.

grassed arrests -- the graphs to rest. We are getting stuck into the

:38:16.:38:21.

bottom half of the draw. Roger Federer to come. He is playing

:38:22.:38:34.

Zverev. This match contains some threat for Novak Djokovic, who

:38:35.:38:36.

really seems to be regaining his desire for the game. This man with

:38:37.:38:43.

three Wimbledon titles in 2011, 2014 and 20 15. The man who has beaten

:38:44.:38:48.

Nadal, Federer and feather in those finals, and on the greatest stage of

:38:49.:38:59.

all he is playing against Ernests Gulbis, who only has four matches

:39:00.:39:03.

this year. Don't be fooled, one of them was against Del Potro in the

:39:04.:39:09.

last round and he's former top ten. Enjoy this third-round match.

:39:10.:39:24.

John McEnroe is moving like a today. That was the quickest you've ever

:39:25.:39:31.

made from the outside to the inside. And looking forward to this. See if

:39:32.:39:35.

Gulbis and stepped up. Make this a really competitive third-round

:39:36.:39:36.

affair. He's got one of the best backhand in

:39:37.:39:44.

the business. Boris Becker is taking a little bit

:39:45.:39:59.

more time to make his way to the commentary box. This doesn't

:40:00.:40:00.

surprise us. When he does get here, he will dive

:40:01.:40:29.

into his headphones. Is there anything you want to see before he

:40:30.:40:33.

gets here? He is overrated in his tennis career... Eight Wimbledon

:40:34.:40:36.

finals, Lucky... It's been a popular move to win the

:40:37.:41:06.

toss and elected to receive. That is what Gulbis this year.

:41:07.:42:39.

Djokovic did well because that was a nasty slip and he was straight up.

:42:40.:42:46.

The point would have been over beforehand. He reacted to this shop

:42:47.:42:54.

all but he's balanced himself. Seems to slip more than any of the top

:42:55.:42:57.

players. He's quickly able to recover.

:42:58.:43:07.

Gulbis only has one win long ago. At least when you've beaten him, you've

:43:08.:43:22.

beaten him. He did that when he was at the academy but I don't know if

:43:23.:43:24.

that matters anymore. Speed gun on court had that at 106

:43:25.:43:54.

mph. Maybe taking a break between matches.

:43:55.:44:15.

That's the thing when you have not played on these courts for a while.

:44:16.:44:23.

It doesn't matter how much you practice, it affects you when you

:44:24.:44:30.

get on it. There is an aura. It makes you wobble. Not now.

:44:31.:44:43.

This is a man whose ranking does not reflect his ability. He beat Federer

:44:44.:44:52.

in a grand slam Championship. You wonder how fit he is. If he

:44:53.:45:25.

needs to go deep in the match. He's strong, you can see that. Still

:45:26.:45:28.

bringing some serious pop out there. It looked like that ball was going

:45:29.:45:49.

to be out but caught the net. Unlucky for him.

:45:50.:46:21.

Novak is popular in the locker room, these guys are friends, and he had

:46:22.:46:28.

the confidence to ask him whether he should challenge and he challenged.

:46:29.:46:35.

Novak knew it was owed, said, go ahead! I know what you mean, it is

:46:36.:46:46.

nice. It is great sportsmanship. You might have missed the rugby, it was

:46:47.:46:54.

wonderful. It was 15-15, it was a draw.

:46:55.:47:15.

So they haven't beaten them down in New Zealand for 40 years and you're

:47:16.:47:22.

telling me after all this build-up that I've been hearing it was a

:47:23.:47:27.

draw? It was honourable, Americans can never understand you can play

:47:28.:47:30.

cricket for five days and get a draw. Come on...

:47:31.:47:41.

A wonderful match at Wimbledon and at 10-10 they call it a draw. It was

:47:42.:47:50.

the first since 1955. I've done my homework. Usually there is a winner

:47:51.:47:52.

and a loser. Good knowledge from these foreign

:47:53.:47:59.

fellows. But I'm with you, John, I find it a

:48:00.:48:14.

bit odd. This is such an important game for

:48:15.:48:22.

Gulbis to get into this match. That Sun starts to move across,

:48:23.:48:37.

could be tricky to throw the ball up. He's going to have to move the

:48:38.:48:40.

toss. Please don't throw fire. He cannot get out of this game and

:48:41.:49:04.

this is really a test. There's a foundation for the said he's really

:49:05.:49:05.

got to get stuck into this match. The umpire said you're already

:49:06.:49:49.

walking to the other side and then you raise your hand. Where else was

:49:50.:50:02.

he going to go? Would not have done him good if he challenged anyway. It

:50:03.:50:12.

is the interpretation of the rules. Challenge this time. I believe

:50:13.:50:20.

Gulbis is on the scoreboard. The backhand at the sideline.

:50:21.:50:24.

It is in! It should be Novak's point. I don't know when the call

:50:25.:50:39.

came. Replay the point, he says. That will not go over well. He had

:50:40.:50:51.

no chance to get it. That is two points in a row. Beginning of the

:50:52.:50:58.

match. Focus, please. I am. Yes, you are... Novak has a point. I don't

:50:59.:51:05.

think it affected him. He was very much out of position.

:51:06.:51:25.

Maybe just this will still prevail. He's at his very best when bad

:51:26.:51:38.

umpiring triggers him. Makes him play better. I wouldn't know

:51:39.:51:45.

anything about that. How about that? Nine minutes of

:51:46.:52:43.

effort and toil. And he has his reward. So many people a few years

:52:44.:52:52.

ago would have said he was the man most likely to be the first Latvian

:52:53.:52:57.

grand slam champion. He got close a couple of times. It turned out to be

:52:58.:53:03.

Ostapenko at the French Open, wonderful performance from her.

:53:04.:53:09.

Gulbis was on a treatment table in Tenerife watching that. He must have

:53:10.:53:10.

thought, what about me. Another newspaper described him as a

:53:11.:53:27.

flickering flame of talent. We hope so. There's a tremendous

:53:28.:53:54.

upside. It was looking so promising a couple of years ago. Wait till you

:53:55.:54:04.

see what we are going to get in a year or two. Not what they

:54:05.:54:05.

anticipated. Before the tournament started, went

:54:06.:54:15.

to the Academy and chain through another week.

:54:16.:55:17.

This is an interesting match, this. This is a test for Djokovic.

:55:18.:55:24.

The type of style that bothers him is the likes of Stan Wawrinka, who

:55:25.:55:34.

can blow him off the court. It looks possible with Gulbis.

:55:35.:55:52.

Take that! Call that serve? I don't think you will want to go anywhere.

:55:53.:56:04.

This has the makings of a very fine third-round match. Only one of these

:56:05.:56:10.

men can make the second week of the Championship. That was the forehand

:56:11.:56:18.

we were talking about prior to the match. What a winner. This is what

:56:19.:56:20.

is happening on Caroline Wozniacki has just broken

:56:21.:56:33.

back. Disappointing news for Heather

:56:34.:56:57.

Watson, beaten with her partner today in three sets. Talking of the

:56:58.:57:06.

doubles news, a long time out of the game, suffered a knee, and a

:57:07.:57:14.

ruptured tendon. Will need surgery. We wish her well.

:57:15.:57:21.

The crowd are filtering in after taking 25 minutes or so. Filtering

:57:22.:57:39.

back in. It's another holiday here. It's a third-round match. Break of

:57:40.:57:41.

serve to Gulbis. He's got to keep making it work as

:57:42.:57:58.

he did in his first service game. Gulbis knows this and he will not

:57:59.:58:14.

give him the time and space to do so.

:58:15.:58:48.

The year Gulbis reached the semifinal was against Novak. After,

:58:49.:58:54.

they got together. Yes. He is bringing the heat. I

:58:55.:59:25.

wonder if he will start to bring him into the net. Getting him out of the

:59:26.:59:28.

comfort zone. Touch... He has got some pretty good

:59:29.:00:11.

hands, Gulbis. He loves the drop shot. Not particularly comfortable

:00:12.:00:20.

out there the net. The foot. He touched it with the foot, I think.

:00:21.:00:28.

Another call that was not in favour of Novak. Just saying... There is

:00:29.:00:38.

another 132 mph delivery, and after that tough first service game, that

:00:39.:00:45.

backs up the break. The single best set of tennis that we have seen so

:00:46.:00:48.

far in these championships, probably.

:00:49.:01:15.

Beautiful feel from Novak there. Even though they say they watch

:01:16.:01:24.

other guys, they watch each other, they watch the form, so they know

:01:25.:01:29.

what is at stake, and they want to play accordingly.

:01:30.:02:00.

On Novak's second serve, he goes a lot on the forehand, pretty

:02:01.:02:05.

high-speed, low percentage shot, really.

:02:06.:02:29.

CROWD GROANS It's not going for Djokovic yet. All

:02:30.:02:47.

those little points... It's supposed to be a piece of cake.

:02:48.:03:05.

It's quite intriguing, this one, because Gulbis got his nose in

:03:06.:03:13.

front. But I don't suppose there are too many sets were Novak doesn't

:03:14.:03:16.

break serve, or at least has a real good look. It is not like a break of

:03:17.:03:21.

serve quite in the old days. You're right. Gulbis has nothing to lose,

:03:22.:03:28.

and he was tested early on in his first service game, but he weathered

:03:29.:03:32.

the storm and held comfortably after, so I am sure Novak will get a

:03:33.:03:35.

crack at it eventually. The question is whether it is in the first set.

:03:36.:03:45.

If this guy gets hot, it can take the racket out of your hand. I think

:03:46.:03:50.

Gulbis is showing you that. If he can keep the percentage high... Even

:03:51.:04:04.

when he is playing his best, we know there will be times. It is

:04:05.:04:07.

frustrating right now from Novak, but he has to stay patient, feel

:04:08.:04:15.

like his time will come. It would be highly surprising if it didn't.

:04:16.:04:31.

Really very full now here. 50,000 people on Centre Court for this

:04:32.:04:36.

third-round match. Serving with a break, Gulbis.

:04:37.:04:42.

That's a big second serve. That's the thing when you play without

:04:43.:05:00.

fear. You know you have got to play your best. Otherwise, you would have

:05:01.:05:08.

a chance anyway. -- you won't have a chance.

:05:09.:05:40.

Against a big server, sometimes you just get it -- you've just got to

:05:41.:05:46.

get the ball back. Berries that drop shot. He does like

:05:47.:06:10.

that. I like the idea of moving him and bringing him in. He takes the

:06:11.:06:15.

racket back quite a long way on this. He looks like he is going to

:06:16.:06:18.

have a go at it, and then just the one hand. A good disguise.

:06:19.:07:10.

134 mph, as the adrenaline pumps around Gulbis's body here. He has

:07:11.:07:24.

strong legs, strong quads, and he explodes into that high costs. He

:07:25.:07:29.

comes from an athletic background. His grandad was a soviet Union

:07:30.:07:31.

basketball staff. -- star. A skiing background for Novak

:07:32.:08:00.

Djokovic. Still does it in the Serbian mountains. Don't tell the

:08:01.:08:08.

insurers! They know that he goes for a day or two. He is protected -

:08:09.:08:16.

there is no one else on the slopes but him.

:08:17.:08:34.

So they will close the mountain for him? They will have people left and

:08:35.:08:40.

right when he goes down the slope so that no one can enter his lane. It

:08:41.:08:45.

is like New York City for you, John! Just like that!

:08:46.:09:03.

The stores are all empty now. Everyone is online. This is an

:09:04.:09:13.

intriguing match. The camp brink a great deal of intellect, and I'm

:09:14.:09:20.

sure that thrills Novak Djokovic. Boris, you were with Novak for three

:09:21.:09:23.

years. We should congratulate you. He won six Grand Slam championships

:09:24.:09:29.

when you were with him, and he was the holder of all four Grand Slams

:09:30.:09:33.

simultaneously. That sets him apart from even Federer and Nadal, at a

:09:34.:09:39.

time when he could easily have been four three in the world forever

:09:40.:09:43.

more, he went ahead and became this really great champion. And then

:09:44.:09:47.

what? Suffered a fall because he had been to the moon? A little bit. It

:09:48.:09:55.

is only natural to take your foot off the pedal when you have reached

:09:56.:10:00.

Mount Everest. The energy that he spent on becoming the very best

:10:01.:10:04.

version of himself, it has taken its toll on his friends and family and

:10:05.:10:08.

everything else, so he said, enough of that, I want to be back to the

:10:09.:10:14.

people I love most. That naturally means he has spent a few less

:10:15.:10:21.

minutes on the tennis court. I'm surprised that we are surprised. Is

:10:22.:10:25.

that why you guys parted ways, because you didn't feel he was

:10:26.:10:30.

working hard enough? After the year was over, I felt that he wouldn't

:10:31.:10:34.

spend as much time on the practice court, what I wanted him to do. I am

:10:35.:10:40.

the first to understand that family's first. I am still his

:10:41.:10:47.

friend and I still respect and love him, but I thought we should part

:10:48.:10:48.

ways. New tennis balls here, and the

:10:49.:10:59.

backspin return of a big first serve, gives Djokovic the first

:11:00.:11:06.

point. We look for any signs of a lack of belief from Gulbis. The ball

:11:07.:11:09.

will react differently now, zipping through a little bit more.

:11:10.:11:21.

Oh, yes! The best job we have seen today, no question. We saw the first

:11:22.:11:34.

return skidding. He is trying to get himself back to business here. I

:11:35.:11:41.

liked the raw, a real message to the other guy.

:11:42.:11:59.

UMPIRE: Mr Gulbis is challenging the call.

:12:00.:12:30.

There should be an immediate challenge or no challenge.

:12:31.:12:48.

You have a time clock for challenges, and a time clock between

:12:49.:12:57.

points. He didn't take much time for this forehand to go from one end or

:12:58.:13:03.

the other. That is the leg strength that John was talking about. Two

:13:04.:13:06.

break points, still. To the body. Novak couldn't get away

:13:07.:13:13.

from it. The third double fault for the

:13:14.:13:58.

match. He plays high risk tennis, no question about that. That's why you

:13:59.:14:05.

just have to stick with it mentally. As we expected, the level... He

:14:06.:14:15.

couldn't keep that the level he came up with. We're back to square one

:14:16.:14:19.

after 34 minutes. But the momentum has switched.

:14:20.:14:57.

Interesting strategy from Gulbis. Attract Novak into the net. He had

:14:58.:15:13.

all the time to set that up and hit it down the line beautifully.

:15:14.:16:09.

Just a little bit of adrenaline, a little bit of magic has gone from

:16:10.:16:31.

his game. The first serve percentage is

:16:32.:17:40.

dropping a little bit. That was a strange last point. The

:17:41.:18:19.

Serb was patted back. -- the serve. Did you look at the numbers, the

:18:20.:18:24.

full analysis with Djokovic? I did all the boring work after matches.

:18:25.:18:28.

Me with the rest of the team. The statistics don't lie. If you have an

:18:29.:18:33.

argument the next day, saying, you're serve was low, you have the

:18:34.:18:40.

figures. It gives you evidence and a stronger argument if you want to

:18:41.:18:44.

work on something. These guys are stubborn. You know, they know tennis

:18:45.:18:48.

better than most other people, so you have to come with strong

:18:49.:18:55.

arguments. They get a sense of what is going to work, the best guys. I

:18:56.:19:00.

think, OK, according to what I have read in the statistics sheet,... You

:19:01.:19:05.

would be horrible to argue with, wouldn't you? I'm not that type of

:19:06.:19:11.

coach! The first time it ever happened to me, in 1981 in the Davis

:19:12.:19:18.

Cup, my captain did not say a word to me the entire match, and he is

:19:19.:19:22.

looking at these stats. I am like, what are you looking at? We know

:19:23.:19:29.

what is going on. He said, OK, sort of. He did not say one thing

:19:30.:19:36.

tactically, at all. The game has changed. It's more scientific now.

:19:37.:19:44.

People want to understand why they have to play certain things and

:19:45.:19:50.

practice certain forehands. Having been a break of serve up, Gulbis now

:19:51.:19:54.

serving to stay in this first set. The top guys, they are tougher

:19:55.:20:18.

mentally, concentrate better, more consistent, they don't beat

:20:19.:20:21.

themselves. They have less ebb and flow. Also very curious - they want

:20:22.:20:33.

to know why. 1% might be the difference between winning and

:20:34.:20:37.

losing when they play. When you see the stats on the points, at the end

:20:38.:20:41.

of the year, how much better the top guys are, we're talking just a

:20:42.:20:42.

couple of points. Since Novak has energised himself,

:20:43.:21:03.

he has taken over emotionally and in terms of the score.

:21:04.:21:26.

Funny, a few minutes ago, it was impossible to return the serve,

:21:27.:21:32.

something has switched off now and he is down three set points.

:21:33.:22:20.

Not this time. To make breaks in a row. Novak Djokovic, from a break

:22:21.:22:29.

down, wins the first set, 6-4. Some pretty intense minutes here on

:22:30.:22:33.

Centre Court. SUE BARKER: And Andre Agassi will be delighted by how his

:22:34.:22:37.

man came back. Djokovic takes the opening set. We will be right back

:22:38.:22:43.

with this match. One result to bring you, a five set thriller on court to

:22:44.:22:48.

12. The crowd loving it, some entertaining. And Adrian Mannarino

:22:49.:22:53.

has beaten Gael Monfils, the 15th seed, winning it 6-2 in the fifth

:22:54.:23:00.

and sign up -- fifth and final set. It ends in disappointment yet again

:23:01.:23:05.

here at Wimbledon for Gael Monfils. Adrian Mannarino wins yet another

:23:06.:23:11.

five set match here at Wimbledon. He will go through to face either

:23:12.:23:24.

Djokovic or Gulbis. He is through to the fourth round and guaranteed

:23:25.:23:29.

?147,000. That is the prize money. The crowd are absolutely loving the

:23:30.:23:33.

match out on court today. We could be in for another big upset here,

:23:34.:23:38.

because Caroline Wozniacki, the former world number one, is one set

:23:39.:23:44.

and one break down against this girl, Annet Kontaveit. That matches

:23:45.:23:53.

on BBC Two. It could be another big upset in the ladies' championship

:23:54.:23:57.

was that is happening on Court Number One. Back to court.

:23:58.:24:02.

COMMENTATOR: The sunshine beating down on day six of the

:24:03.:24:07.

Championships. The court looks resplendent, having had another very

:24:08.:24:11.

good drink last night and this morning, well watered. On a hot week

:24:12.:24:16.

like this, they pull the roof over and reduce the temperature to 22

:24:17.:24:21.

Celsius to give the grass a rest. On court temperatures this week have

:24:22.:24:26.

been 43.5 Celsius, that is the grass temperature. At that temperature,

:24:27.:24:30.

grass doesn't grow very well. They have had a job on their hands, but

:24:31.:24:35.

it is playing beautifully. It will play slightly differently every

:24:36.:24:35.

single day. Novak Djokovic has deflated his

:24:36.:24:50.

opponent, the Latvian, coming back from so many injuries will --

:24:51.:25:07.

injuries. This will allow him to relax now. He will be tougher to

:25:08.:25:11.

contend with. Talking about the quality of the grass, and some of

:25:12.:25:15.

the players have been complaining. I think it is burnt. The temperature

:25:16.:25:29.

has taken its toll. It is also a later start than it has been in over

:25:30.:25:33.

100 years. It has been hotter generally, so the court is harder

:25:34.:25:35.

than I have seen it for a while. This quality of hitting, the sound

:25:36.:25:52.

of the ball from the Novak Djokovic bracket is a joy. Yesterday, seeing

:25:53.:26:02.

Fabio Fognini's comments after playing Murray, he said, look, I

:26:03.:26:07.

proved a lot. I was better than him for most of the match. Which, I'm

:26:08.:26:14.

sorry, but isn't it who wins the last point? Sometimes you can't

:26:15.:26:24.

question focus and ability, the ability to keep concentration. They

:26:25.:26:27.

lose sight of what the job is. Gulbis is another one of those guys,

:26:28.:26:29.

as we are witnessing. To be fair to some of these players,

:26:30.:26:46.

English is not their first language. If one player has a weakness at the

:26:47.:27:30.

beginning of their career, it is very difficult to completely get rid

:27:31.:27:35.

of it. It'll sneak up on the most awkward situation. The Gulbis

:27:36.:27:39.

forehand was always the weaker side. John, were you more comfortable on

:27:40.:28:10.

the forehand of the backhand? I didn't have big weapons. The

:28:11.:28:15.

supposed weapon was not to have any weakness.

:28:16.:28:22.

Equally mediocre on both sides! There is trouble here, the

:28:23.:28:31.

possibility of a third break in a row. Look at this athleticism. So

:28:32.:28:35.

flexible. He gave the shot away and paid the

:28:36.:29:17.

price. You can see that he's looking to open the face of the racket,

:29:18.:29:21.

which means it is more than likely going to be very short. This guy is

:29:22.:29:26.

one of the great movers in our sport ever. He ate that up.

:29:27.:29:42.

He was 4-2 down? Yes, three breaks in a row. Him and the top four or

:29:43.:29:51.

five guys, they are incredible frontrunners. When they smell the

:29:52.:29:55.

bacon, they really go for it. Novak, Roger, Rafa, Andy, they see

:29:56.:30:11.

that the opponent is weak and they take advantage.

:30:12.:31:12.

The first serve percentage increased to 69.

:31:13.:31:19.

Djokovic very much in control on Centre court. We will rejoin this in

:31:20.:31:45.

a moment. Some results, Thomas -- Thomas Burdick is through against

:31:46.:31:49.

Davitt prayer. Such a powerful game from the big

:31:50.:31:56.

man from the back of the court. He is marching on.

:31:57.:32:13.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga came out to complete his match and only played

:32:14.:32:18.

one game. He lost his serve and it meant Sam Querrey went through. They

:32:19.:32:32.

go through to face another big server, Kevin Anderson. Those are

:32:33.:32:36.

the results out on Court number two. So many stories at Wimbledon.

:32:37.:33:15.

Zverev, came through the qualifying, and here he appears with a chance to

:33:16.:33:16.

get through to the second week. On court 18 earlier, she was the

:33:17.:33:34.

five match points down in qualifying and now she's in the fourth round.

:33:35.:33:40.

Junior is taking place today as well. Great to watch.

:33:41.:33:54.

They will be clogging up the court. Seniors next week. And the locker

:33:55.:34:03.

rooms. To make this a bit of a match,

:34:04.:34:46.

Gulbis needs to regroup and concentrate on what made it strong

:34:47.:34:49.

in the first instance. Strong groundstrokes.

:34:50.:34:55.

Just last seven games in a row, got to go back to basics. Is that in his

:34:56.:35:15.

playbook? We are seeing a more determined

:35:16.:35:28.

Djokovic than we've seen in quite some time. His match in the French

:35:29.:35:33.

Open was desperate, he gave up the fight. He looks hungry. He went down

:35:34.:35:39.

to Eastbourne and one. Got the matches in. He is best under

:35:40.:35:52.

adversity. Feels like he's being mistreated or misjudged.

:35:53.:36:07.

Some people need a crisis to get motivated.

:36:08.:36:31.

His lack of match play and his style of play are being exposed now. And

:36:32.:36:38.

his belief, ultimately. He's completely self-destructed. Shoulder

:36:39.:36:47.

injuries, rest, at here in the calf muscle, and the fact he is only won

:36:48.:36:50.

three matches. Looking for his fourth year.

:36:51.:37:09.

Well done. You said earlier, he doesn't have a plan B. He's never

:37:10.:37:26.

been known to be an exceptionally hard worker so he's probably not

:37:27.:37:29.

sure how long he can go out here. He's got to be feeling pretty good

:37:30.:38:21.

about his draw right about now. They played last year in the first

:38:22.:38:34.

round when he was defending champion and it was a pretty awkward match.

:38:35.:38:44.

There still a lot of tennis to be this afternoon.

:38:45.:38:52.

Perfect example of where you put him in a tough spot, encouraged him to

:38:53.:40:02.

go up the lane, higher part of that. Good move back there. Saved one of

:40:03.:40:04.

these break points. Too long after a couple of squash

:40:05.:40:30.

shot forehands. Just pulled back to the baseline. Good variety by

:40:31.:40:37.

Gulbis. I like it. Many more ways to hit the forehand.

:40:38.:41:15.

He's come back from 2-0 on three occasions but to do it on centre

:41:16.:41:27.

court against Djokovic is a big ask for sure.

:41:28.:41:40.

Latvia used to be behind the Aaron curtain but now that so many layers

:41:41.:41:49.

from that region. They have a young female star. Gulbis, at the age of

:41:50.:41:56.

28, doesn't want this raid to be over. Thankfully, because I've seen

:41:57.:42:08.

him so many times and it looks like he's decided he's not going to take

:42:09.:42:12.

his job very seriously, and he's said as much. He said it to me, he

:42:13.:42:19.

said it to other players. He did reach ten in the world. He was in

:42:20.:42:26.

the quarters. I had with him when he was 15 in Croatia. They were like,

:42:27.:42:31.

watch over this guy. Just got news that Gulbis has asked

:42:32.:43:08.

for the trainer for a back injury. He needs all the help he can get.

:43:09.:43:19.

Mr Gulbis is challenging the ball. It was called out. It was maybe too

:43:20.:43:28.

much, too soon in the first set. In case you've forgotten it was not

:43:29.:43:50.

long ago it was 4-2, Gulbis. He was serving at 4-3 and then got back

:43:51.:43:53.

into the game and lost with a double fault. That was key.

:43:54.:44:57.

This second serve is troubling me. I understand you don't want to hit it

:44:58.:45:03.

too carefully but there has to be another way of putting it on. How

:45:04.:45:07.

many double faults are we talking now? Seven.

:45:08.:45:19.

He was a good player. He beat Henman. Lost to Andy Roddick. We had

:45:20.:46:56.

him in practice for the last two years. He lives in New York. A stock

:46:57.:47:04.

trader. Very smart guy. Still has a big serve, a big forehand, good

:47:05.:47:09.

enough to practice for a couple of days.

:47:10.:47:23.

Well done. I like that drive the cars he'd been getting beaten up and

:47:24.:47:31.

that snaps that run. Marouane Chamakh is involved -- Mario Ancic

:47:32.:47:38.

is involved. You were talking about how wealthy

:47:39.:47:56.

he is and the finances for the Gulbis family. Tell me. I don't know

:47:57.:48:00.

about numbers but we don't have to worry. It makes it all the more

:48:01.:48:06.

remarkable in my eyes about Gulbis playing tennis. He must love the

:48:07.:48:10.

competition and doing something on his own instead of depending on

:48:11.:48:18.

daddy's money and I respected a lot. A lot of sons and daughters don't.

:48:19.:48:35.

Relaxing and relying on the trust fund. I think he may have that in

:48:36.:48:46.

the back pocket. Game, and second set, Novak

:48:47.:49:51.

Djokovic. Djokovic leads by two sets to love.

:49:52.:50:05.

Djokovic has turned this thread completely. Cue the trainer. Here we

:50:06.:50:15.

go. There's quite a lot of around these days. Amazing how much it

:50:16.:50:24.

hurts when you are losing. These next-generation finals taking place

:50:25.:50:30.

later on this year, it is before the world tour finals in London. They're

:50:31.:50:35.

going to allow only a couple of time-outs and a number of other rule

:50:36.:50:36.

changes. He's getting some treatment. He's

:50:37.:50:55.

got to win three sets in a row with an injured back. It seems unlikely

:50:56.:51:04.

at this point. We will take this opportunity to move away from centre

:51:05.:51:07.

and bring you some results. If you are just coming in. First up, the

:51:08.:51:14.

number one seeds, Angelique Kerber came from a set and a breakdown.

:51:15.:51:24.

That's much it means. Shelby Rogers had her chances, just got a little

:51:25.:51:26.

bit negative when she was set a break up. She is brewed to face

:51:27.:51:41.

Muguruza who was not on court long. She can volley well, she likes to

:51:42.:51:48.

come forehead. She is brewed to the delight of her coach.

:51:49.:52:05.

Radwanska got better and better as the match went on. She's not had a

:52:06.:52:10.

great year but she's coming into form at the right time. Tremendous

:52:11.:52:20.

final set. She threw the next round. And through to face Svetlana

:52:21.:52:32.

Kuznetsova, on Monday. That is two very experienced players. Those are

:52:33.:52:51.

the stories. One more to bring you. Vandeweghe is racing through over

:52:52.:52:55.

her fellow American. She could go deep into the

:52:56.:53:11.

tournament. Came through in straight sets, what a tournament she has had.

:53:12.:53:22.

It is really paying off. Looking very much at home on the grass. She

:53:23.:53:36.

through to Monday. And Milos Raonic has defeated Vinolas. He raced

:53:37.:53:47.

through after the tie-break. The big server was last year's finalist,

:53:48.:53:51.

losing to Andy Murray. He is through.

:53:52.:53:57.

It looks like the injury time-out is over so let's rejoin.

:53:58.:54:05.

Back on centre court. At the moment absolutely odds-on. Novak Djokovic

:54:06.:54:25.

was a champion three times here. He obviously came in, because he played

:54:26.:54:31.

Del Potro, he's not played many matches, his back tightened up. That

:54:32.:54:37.

happens. Should he be allowed this treatment? It did not happen during

:54:38.:54:44.

the match. It just got a little worse. Tough thing to prove. I

:54:45.:54:54.

mean... It is but nonetheless the bottom line is, should be allowed to

:54:55.:55:01.

get treatment for something that has been going on. I think we should get

:55:02.:55:08.

a massage in the commentary box if the match goes on. It would make any

:55:09.:55:12.

people feel better when they are slightly stressed. It's a fair point

:55:13.:55:22.

you're making. Sometimes that's the result of the other guys making you

:55:23.:55:30.

run left and right. You win easily and you save yourself. That's what

:55:31.:55:33.

Novak Djokovic wants to do so he's got more in the tank for the second

:55:34.:55:41.

week. Are you grumpy about medical time-outs? It is an epidemic.

:55:42.:55:48.

Bathroom breaks. It is almost every time. Totally abused.

:55:49.:55:55.

So many male tennis players took to the court and did not finish

:55:56.:55:59.

matches. It is in focus this week. They should give the trainer 10% of

:56:00.:56:36.

the prize money if these guys come back. All of a sudden he's starting

:56:37.:56:46.

to hit the ball clean again. He's regrouped.

:56:47.:56:55.

Obviously it takes the concentration away from the opponent who need to

:56:56.:56:58.

wait for ten, 15 minutes. That's a very fine start. Whether he

:56:59.:57:31.

was aided by the medical time-out, and it certainly appears he was, he

:57:32.:57:38.

has held to love to start this third set. I'm thinking of Bernard Tomic

:57:39.:57:47.

who said he took a medical time-out to change things up and was

:57:48.:57:53.

immediately find. He also said he did not have anything wrong with

:57:54.:57:59.

him. Both things meant he was done for. Dumb.

:58:00.:58:31.

By the way, I don't blame him for doing it because in the rules.

:58:32.:58:39.

Players are figuring out how to take advantage of it. I think that's the

:58:40.:58:45.

point, really. Some of these rules being taken advantage of, and that's

:58:46.:58:48.

what we discuss. He lost a bit of momentum and

:58:49.:59:28.

intensity. Some unforced errors are creeping into his game. Maybe need

:59:29.:59:35.

to call the trainer as well. A run of six straight points by

:59:36.:59:49.

Gulbis after that medical time-out. BORIS BECKER: And here we go. This

:59:50.:01:27.

first break point since the middle of the first set.

:01:28.:01:49.

That's good athleticism. He jumped on the return before the ball

:01:50.:02:03.

dropped below the net. It makes life a whole lot easier from there.

:02:04.:02:23.

You can tell from Novak's face, when you know him better, when he is

:02:24.:02:30.

focusing and taking it seriously and when he is not. I think that break

:02:31.:02:43.

point was an alarm bell. He is looking pretty good. When you are

:02:44.:02:56.

hurting, latest tougher. Novak is starting to go behind the more. He

:02:57.:03:02.

wants to finish this guy off in three sets.

:03:03.:03:30.

Incredible backhand at times. Really following through and going after

:03:31.:03:40.

it, taking it on. Technically, very sound. In contrast to his forehand.

:03:41.:04:16.

Novak has done an excellent job of taking this crowd completely out of

:04:17.:04:23.

it. They are just like, OK, it's over. Where is Federer? UMPIRE: Mr

:04:24.:04:31.

Djokovic is challenging the call. The ball was called in. It has been

:04:32.:04:36.

a feature of so many men's matches on Centre Court. We had Murray and

:04:37.:04:43.

Fognini, and had hardly been a men's match that had been a great contest.

:04:44.:04:53.

I don't believe it! That is one of the shots of the week. Court

:04:54.:05:08.

coverage, first step, phenomenal. So much for the slippery grass court

:05:09.:05:13.

will stop he got some traction on his first step. And he still had to

:05:14.:05:15.

hit that shot after sprinting. I liked the noise. It sounds similar

:05:16.:05:32.

to some of the noises he made in the first set.

:05:33.:06:03.

I saw Novak doing something surprising - he had an ice bath

:06:04.:06:12.

before he played the finals of the open. You often hear of players

:06:13.:06:17.

doing it after. I don't think I should tell you everything. I just

:06:18.:06:28.

asked if he took ice baths, that's all. A lot of things go on in the

:06:29.:06:32.

locker room that we don't know from the outside, and that is a good

:06:33.:06:37.

thing. It is down to the discretion of the players. Everybody has their

:06:38.:06:41.

own way of preparing, getting ready. He came out strong. He won the first

:06:42.:06:46.

set and might have been up in the second as well, so it is not as if

:06:47.:06:51.

it didn't work. Through the years, people try different things before

:06:52.:06:55.

and after matches. Some things work on some things done. Some say you

:06:56.:07:02.

should take a cold plunge, others, a hot shower. Practice right before,

:07:03.:07:08.

don't practice. Get in some jump rope, ride the bike... It is hard to

:07:09.:07:14.

know exactly what works. The top guys, being there for so long, they

:07:15.:07:21.

have adapted to the game. I believe the game is changing every 18

:07:22.:07:26.

months, so you, as a top guy, how to improve, and what worked two years

:07:27.:07:30.

ago won't work any more, and that includes practice and recovery.

:07:31.:08:37.

Certainly, the work he got done at the end of the second set seems to

:08:38.:08:42.

have inspired him temporarily, at least. He is starting to hit the

:08:43.:08:51.

ball cleanly again. I think Andy Murray had to deal with the same

:08:52.:08:57.

thing against Guinea, doing jumps on the baseline to stay warm. --

:08:58.:09:05.

against Fabio Fognini. Novak is doing a smart thing, which is to go

:09:06.:09:12.

in behind Gulbis, forcing him to stop and turn back, which is

:09:13.:09:16.

painful. Especially when the ball is out of reach.

:09:17.:10:12.

People look at Novak and the other guys at the top, and they wonder

:10:13.:10:22.

what they work on. Boris, what did you work on within more than

:10:23.:10:26.

anything else? It changed every week, literally. Sometimes you

:10:27.:10:32.

worked the serve, sometimes the forehand, sometimes the backhand,

:10:33.:10:40.

sometimes the footwork. It depended on the surface. The reverse drop

:10:41.:10:45.

shot on the backhand? No, we didn't work on that. That is called

:10:46.:10:50.

instinct. That is exactly the shot he wanted to hit. A short slice,

:10:51.:10:56.

away from Gulbis. Low. Beautiful play. We spent a lot of time talking

:10:57.:11:06.

about strategy, how to position yourself, where you are most

:11:07.:11:12.

effective. About the opponents, whether you play Federer, Nadal,

:11:13.:11:19.

Murray, what is the best way to beat them?

:11:20.:11:36.

As is often the case when two guys are at the net, one of the two goes

:11:37.:11:44.

right at the other to plug them with the shot. The right move. Gulbis was

:11:45.:11:48.

ready for it. I wasn't loading the team. There an

:11:49.:12:31.

assistant trainer other people. They all got the boot, didn't? Yes. A

:12:32.:12:38.

tenth appearance at Wimbledon for Ernests Gulbis, a former top ten

:12:39.:12:46.

player. He got there just after 2014, the French Open semifinal. He

:12:47.:12:53.

is still well down in this match. SUE BARKER: And we will be back on

:12:54.:12:55.

Centre Court in just a moment. There is plenty happening on this

:12:56.:13:06.

middle Saturday. Caroline Wozniacki is now a break of serve up in the

:13:07.:13:13.

third and final set. The four-man world number one is fighting hard.

:13:14.:13:18.

That match is currently on BBC Two. On Court Number Two, Sasha Steres, a

:13:19.:13:24.

very talented youngster, is going very well. The 20-year-old is up

:13:25.:13:32.

against a qualifier who put out Jack Sock in the last round. -- Zverev.

:13:33.:13:41.

We will keep you up-to-date with those matches. Back to centre now.

:13:42.:13:47.

COMMENTATOR: A lovely day here on Centre Court. Two former chairman -

:13:48.:13:59.

Tom Curry and Tim Phillips. They have done so much to transform this

:14:00.:14:01.

club over the years. Pouille we have two three-time

:14:02.:14:35.

champions in the box, and I am not one of them. -- we have two

:14:36.:14:46.

three-time champions in the box. Your final against Bjorn Borg, that

:14:47.:15:33.

changed my life. Those two finals, one that you won and one you lost,

:15:34.:15:36.

they made me want to come to Wimbledon one day. So it's my fault!

:15:37.:15:44.

Really, it is. You're welcome! A splendid shot, but unfortunately,

:15:45.:16:22.

he is 40-0 down, so it won't add up to very much.

:16:23.:16:45.

His first double fault of the match. He has five aces.

:16:46.:17:11.

Suddenly, we've got a game here. You would not have anticipated him

:17:12.:17:18.

missing this forehand. Good point. Gulbis gave himself a

:17:19.:18:11.

chance. But eventually, another unforced error cost him the point.

:18:12.:18:39.

That was a little bit of magic from Novak Djokovic in the hands there.

:18:40.:18:50.

Again, it's a shot you don't practice much, but beautifully done.

:18:51.:18:54.

That is where you are meant to put it - short and across court. He

:18:55.:19:01.

enticed Gulbis to go for a really low percentage reply, which he did,

:19:02.:19:05.

and missed it pretty badly. We haven't seen Djokovic looked as

:19:06.:19:09.

hungry for victory or as sharp in his shot selection and reaction for

:19:10.:19:11.

months. I must tell you, I like it. Considering this guy is 589... He is

:19:12.:19:56.

in a protected ranking because of a medical exemption. They run out

:19:57.:20:03.

quite quickly, so you need to win when you have those chances.

:20:04.:20:26.

Seeded number two because of previous grass court form, which

:20:27.:20:29.

includes winning this three times. UMPIRE: Mr Djokovic is challenging

:20:30.:21:01.

the call. The ball was called out. Here we go, start the conversation.

:21:02.:21:11.

UMPIRE: Mr Djokovic has one challenge remaining.

:21:12.:21:29.

Everyone has their memories of Wimbledon. Whether it is John's

:21:30.:21:38.

matches with Bjorn Borg in 1980 and 1981, Boris winning, the first

:21:39.:21:44.

unseeded, the first German. The first 11-year-old! Andre Agassi in

:21:45.:21:56.

1992. It was wonderful to be here. If we can just get Andre to wear a

:21:57.:22:01.

handkerchief on his head in this sunshine, with the former Notts in

:22:02.:22:09.

the corner, then we would know he was an honorary Brit. He is looking

:22:10.:22:17.

after himself now. A lot more sunscreen now. If he and Ancic have

:22:18.:22:25.

been talking throughout this match. Did Novick look up at you a lot?

:22:26.:22:32.

Yes, I think the player's reaction towards the boxes normal. I think

:22:33.:22:37.

there should be communication among the coaches and the whole team, and

:22:38.:22:41.

I think the player needs to see engagement, that they are behind him

:22:42.:22:45.

with every point. Every player is different. Some players are probably

:22:46.:22:56.

slightly easier to support than others. Some players are pretty

:22:57.:23:00.

rough on their friends and loved ones up there.

:23:01.:23:22.

Gulbis is playing better. He is throwing in the occasional serve -

:23:23.:23:33.

volley. He uses is that pretty well. It is nice to see him move forward.

:23:34.:24:04.

A strong second served by Djokovic, into the body of Gulbis. He didn't

:24:05.:24:08.

have time to move away from it. Djokovic keeps Gulbis busy by

:24:09.:25:07.

changing the pace, a bit higher, and that lower, hoping that eventually,

:25:08.:25:11.

by the fifth or sixth shot, the Latvian goes for too much.

:25:12.:25:55.

You feel like it is a matter of time out here, with Gulbis just hanging

:25:56.:25:59.

on. New balls. He lost serve with new

:26:00.:26:05.

balls at 4-3 in the first set. The new balls play faster, they fly

:26:06.:26:48.

quicker through the air. Not an easy smash, but Gulbis takes

:26:49.:27:23.

no prisoners here. One of the most under practice chopped in the game,

:27:24.:27:25.

the bounce smash. -- under practised shots. He has got

:27:26.:27:50.

to be in it mentally for the long haul. She is protecting herself from

:27:51.:27:57.

the sun. She might as well have stayed at home.

:27:58.:28:34.

You can't beat being here on Centre Court. This schedule today,

:28:35.:28:44.

fabulous. Novak Djokovic in action, obviously, but to win a Grand Slam,

:28:45.:28:50.

seven matches. This Centre Court crowd today, and the order of play,

:28:51.:28:54.

Djokovic and Federer have won me most matches of any players ever at

:28:55.:29:01.

the Grand Slams. 235 matches for Novak Djokovic, 316 for Federer.

:29:02.:29:08.

It's ridiculous, isn't it? It's the motivation to keep going when

:29:09.:29:11.

everything has already been achieved. It is a lot to be admired.

:29:12.:29:19.

Certainly, the way up the ladder, up the rankings, is extremely exciting.

:29:20.:29:24.

You are travelling the world, competing, learning from your

:29:25.:29:30.

losses. Seeing new places. Seeing new places, seeing yourself improve.

:29:31.:29:37.

Sensing the pride that comes along with achieving something monumental.

:29:38.:29:43.

And then to have to stay hungry and to keep looking over your shoulder

:29:44.:29:49.

and looking and learning, finding ways to get better, is even tougher.

:29:50.:29:52.

That is what makes what we've witnessed, especially the top four,

:29:53.:30:04.

so amazing. They seem hungrier than the guys who don't have it.

:30:05.:30:39.

Djokovic getting to this drop shot, so quick. That was of imagination,

:30:40.:30:56.

wasn't it? Best point of the match so far. Had everything in it.

:30:57.:31:11.

He is claiming the -- timing it the way that he can. It is perfect to

:31:12.:31:23.

execute, something that is new to our sport.

:31:24.:31:37.

Novak and no doubt, on clay, is like an art form. Getting the most weight

:31:38.:31:48.

behind your own shots. The first person I saw sliding on anything

:31:49.:31:58.

other than clay was... I saw Goran Ivanisevic sliding on hard court. I

:31:59.:32:08.

said, or K, he's crazy. Only he would attend this and no most guys

:32:09.:32:09.

do it. There I said, it has helped take

:32:10.:32:38.

pressure off their joints? To stop doing it you need incredibly strong

:32:39.:32:44.

joints. I see kids of ten that my academy doing it.

:32:45.:33:06.

That second serve. I don't think I've ever seen a kick serve the come

:33:07.:33:17.

so effective on this court but it is really jumping. We saw some of that

:33:18.:33:24.

at Queen's Club. Good depth from the Djokovic

:33:25.:33:59.

forehand, doing the damage left to right.

:34:00.:34:25.

Good set of tennis now. Still very much mentally in it.

:34:26.:34:55.

He managed to get him to 130. No chance from the return there.

:34:56.:35:34.

Full-stop the second serve hit flat. Normally his bread and butter shot,

:35:35.:36:05.

the backhand. No wonder he's a little bit upset.

:36:06.:37:00.

All or nothing. It is the racquet speed through the ball but also the

:37:01.:37:15.

rotation. If he was throwing discus it would go miles.

:37:16.:37:27.

Do you think it surprised him that it arrived back? Do you think he

:37:28.:37:49.

practices that too often? It could cost in the game.

:37:50.:37:57.

You don't want to be changing brackets between Serbs.

:37:58.:38:06.

The second serve that he missed... He just does not mess on big points.

:38:07.:38:43.

Here's one. An approach shot, and second serve.

:38:44.:39:16.

That is beautifully executed. This was a tricky bowl, cut the tape. Did

:39:17.:39:24.

a really good job getting himself out of trouble. It was curtains.

:39:25.:40:10.

Obviously disappointing for his parents but what are you going to do

:40:11.:40:19.

with Djokovic? He keeps throwing the ball back in the court and it is the

:40:20.:40:25.

depth as much as the pace. The first thing is to expected to be a foot

:40:26.:40:29.

inside the baseline. Don't think he's going to miss it.

:40:30.:40:39.

Another stunning backhand under pressure. He really earned that.

:40:40.:41:06.

He's guaranteed himself at least a shot at the tie-break and maybe

:41:07.:41:30.

could even take it to a fourth. They like the story, the people here.

:41:31.:41:40.

They want to see a match. They saw what happened towards the end of the

:41:41.:41:44.

second when he was feeding, and it looked extremely bleak. It still

:41:45.:41:52.

does but he's battled hard, he has dug in, he has tried some different

:41:53.:41:57.

things and people have responded nicely.

:41:58.:42:00.

He is only that he has only 131 matches.

:42:01.:42:21.

Two tournament that year as well. He likes France.

:42:22.:42:37.

He has got it on clay, that shows his versatility.

:42:38.:43:47.

The ball was called in. Part of it is to slow down the pace.

:43:48.:45:09.

Tie-break. A victory of sorts to even get to the tie-break for him.

:45:10.:45:21.

Played a couple before these, the head-to-head is 6-1.

:45:22.:45:43.

That looked a bit long. The call was late. That always tempts the player

:45:44.:45:59.

with the challenge. Fair challenge, not bad.

:46:00.:46:35.

Certainly would have anticipated that Novak Djokovic would win the

:46:36.:46:39.

majority of those longer rallies, as he did there. Unfortunately

:46:40.:46:50.

beforehand faulted him. It is Djokovic with the mini break.

:46:51.:47:14.

It is all or nothing. You live by the sword and die by the sword.

:47:15.:47:54.

Djokovic knows the next two points are huge to get a comfortable lead

:47:55.:48:03.

in the tie-break. For Gulbis it's just a mini break.

:48:04.:48:28.

Brave play by the Latvian, not holding back.

:48:29.:48:57.

A perfect example of the great players. It was certainly makeable.

:48:58.:49:13.

We've not seen Novak that engaged in a third round match, you can see

:49:14.:49:16.

what it means to him. He is engaged. That was a lovely

:49:17.:49:45.

note that he held there. Certainly prepared to shear his emotions. He

:49:46.:49:51.

has not always felt as loved and adored as Roger Federer and Rafael

:49:52.:50:00.

Nadal. It is difficult opposition. I think it matters to him that he is

:50:01.:50:10.

respected. It feels like it is getting to have the respect. It

:50:11.:50:26.

makes him more human. Quite an accomplishment to be talked about in

:50:27.:50:28.

the same league as those two. Not making life easy. He's into a

:50:29.:50:40.

tie-break. Game, set, match, Djokovic. That was

:50:41.:52:19.

a very accomplished performance and Novak Djokovic is into the second

:52:20.:52:25.

week for a tense time. He really looks like he fancies this.

:52:26.:52:42.

Let's take the views of Boris Becker and John McEnroe. The prospects for

:52:43.:53:07.

the second week are extremely high. I like the intensity he's bringing

:53:08.:53:13.

to the occasion. The crowd are rallying. He is human and he has

:53:14.:53:20.

struggled on the court. There's a lot of good signs. It is great to

:53:21.:53:34.

see Ernest Gilbert -- Ernests Gulbis back to that form. The first time I

:53:35.:53:48.

see the passion back. I am rooting a little bit. It is about passion, how

:53:49.:54:02.

much you invest to win. We spoke about the passion that he wants to

:54:03.:54:11.

win desperately. We will catch up in a second, this is action from the

:54:12.:54:18.

bottom half of the draw. Federal - Djokovic would be the semifinal we

:54:19.:54:26.

would love to see. There will be a lovely match on Monday if Fedor

:54:27.:54:28.

comes through against Zverev. Mannarino got the big scalp today.

:54:29.:54:45.

The highest seed for Djokovic would be Dominic Thiem, who does not have

:54:46.:54:50.

the comfort level on this court yet. Almost beat him at the French.

:54:51.:55:03.

Novak, congratulations, the crowd loved it. They did not as much as

:55:04.:55:10.

you did to get it done in straight sets and get into the second week of

:55:11.:55:17.

Wimbledon for the tenth time in your career. I am delighted, I thought I

:55:18.:55:23.

raised the level of tennis. Compared to the first couple of matches this

:55:24.:55:30.

was the most focused I was on the court and obviously at the right

:55:31.:55:38.

time because he is a great challenge, very unpredictable, with

:55:39.:55:46.

a huge serve. It is not easy playing on grass against the big server like

:55:47.:55:54.

that. Obviously started off well, break up, then I won seven games in

:55:55.:55:58.

a row. That obviously gave me a lot of confidence. In general I'm

:55:59.:56:08.

pleased with the way that I played. I had to focus. How difficult and

:56:09.:56:20.

unsettling is that? I think he will be frustrated with me saying that. I

:56:21.:56:32.

apologise, but it was very odd that the call should have been different.

:56:33.:56:38.

He is trying to do his job. I am as well. Sometimes in the heat of the

:56:39.:56:45.

moment you exchange things. We will be fine. In the next round you've

:56:46.:56:56.

got Mannarino, a rematch. You must fancy your chances. He's a tough

:56:57.:57:07.

player to play against, he has very flat shots from both ends, a really

:57:08.:57:14.

good sliced serve, and he just anticipates really well on this

:57:15.:57:25.

surface. He's in good form. I am as well. Hopefully I will repeat the

:57:26.:57:27.

result from last year. He managed to break and then break

:57:28.:57:43.

again. He took control and raised the level of his game in that

:57:44.:57:52.

tie-break. Novak Djokovic is through. That means six men over 30

:57:53.:58:02.

are into the last 16. That has only happened three times before. Guess

:58:03.:58:07.

who is next? Roger Federer. Will we see another record go at Wimbledon?

:58:08.:58:11.

The beautiful weather we've had, lovely hot sunshine, what a glorious

:58:12.:58:19.

scene this is. The BBC is proud to have been a part of Wimbledon as it

:58:20.:58:20.

has been for the past 90 years. We're going to take your trouble

:58:21.:58:37.

than -- take you to Wimbledon for a running commentary. Wimbledon was

:58:38.:58:42.

crucial in when colour was introduced.

:58:43.:58:55.

# One vision #. SUE BARKER: And all I can say is

:58:56.:00:20.

that Kasia has never had so much fun made so much noise here at

:00:21.:00:28.

Wimbledon. I had an elbow operation about five weeks ago, so I was

:00:29.:00:31.

nervous about throwing the ball. It was OK. You were rude about my

:00:32.:00:37.

backhand. I said it was nearly top-spin. It looked good! It has

:00:38.:00:44.

been a wonderful journey, this championship, so many stories over

:00:45.:00:49.

the years. And the sheer scale of it has changed so much, when you see

:00:50.:00:53.

some of these pictures going back. My first memory here in the 70s...

:00:54.:01:00.

Everyone has such a history. Watching him, the nerves he put us

:01:01.:01:12.

through. John McEnroe in the finals. The first time you saw Bjorn Borg,

:01:13.:01:17.

when you are hanging out that the ladies' dressing room watching him

:01:18.:01:24.

going past. It was a rush to the window, and I was often not at the

:01:25.:01:29.

front of the queue! I'm not naming names! What happens in the locker

:01:30.:01:33.

room stays there, as far as I am concerned. No Kerber -- Novak

:01:34.:01:41.

Djokovic is inspiring youngsters. He turned that match around. , And he

:01:42.:01:45.

knows that Gulbis is a difficult player because he has such a

:01:46.:01:50.

difficult game. With all those top guys, on the first Saturday, they

:01:51.:01:53.

are keen to find a way through to the second week. He was delighted

:01:54.:01:57.

with his form, as he said afterwards, and I think it was a

:01:58.:02:01.

step up today, so he will be a happy man tonight and tomorrow. Andrew, he

:02:02.:02:08.

did look good, and in that tie-break, when you need to raise

:02:09.:02:11.

the level, he really dead. Absolutely. The reason why I am not

:02:12.:02:16.

dressed smartly is because I have just been in the commentary box, but

:02:17.:02:23.

I thought we first saw the real hunger in the seventh and eighth

:02:24.:02:26.

game of the first set and he was a break down. He broke back with those

:02:27.:02:31.

new tennis balls. He seemed so keen and alert, like a cat on the

:02:32.:02:37.

returns, reacting. The Serbs were coming in at around 130 mph. That is

:02:38.:02:42.

unbelievable. His court speed is there. When you think of the French

:02:43.:02:48.

Open a few weeks ago, and he was almost giving up against an ATM.

:02:49.:02:55.

CHEERING And that is for Roger. Roger Federer

:02:56.:03:02.

has come onto the court, the 18- times Grand Slam winner. Everybody

:03:03.:03:09.

wants to see this great champion on his favourite court. It's amazing.

:03:10.:03:16.

When he strolls out of the locker room, even around the players will T

:03:17.:03:21.

area, there is an air about the place. -- around the players' area.

:03:22.:03:36.

As you walk out to face him, Tim obviously knows how that feels, what

:03:37.:03:42.

an ordeal it is to play him. And he is facing Mischa Zverev today. The

:03:43.:03:51.

older brother of Sasha. How did it feel to play Roger? It was OK when

:03:52.:03:58.

he was 14. I felt confident. Even if he is playing a home-grown player,

:03:59.:04:03.

wherever years, he will probably be the crowd's favourite. He is 35,

:04:04.:04:08.

nearly 36, and this court is home from home, with the success he has

:04:09.:04:12.

had. His career is right out a storybook.

:04:13.:04:24.

# She said, be cool, calm and keep yourself together... #.

:04:25.:04:37.

COMMENTATOR: He's done it. The champion is out. I've always joked

:04:38.:04:45.

around as a boy, I am going to win this.

:04:46.:05:03.

SUE BARKER: So many memories there. The win over Pete Sampras. I sat

:05:04.:05:10.

there watching that mac, thinking, this is the passing of the torch

:05:11.:05:14.

from one generation to another. Although Pete Sampras was not in his

:05:15.:05:20.

-- at his best in that match that tournament, he try to increase the

:05:21.:05:23.

pressure and dominate the younger man, and it just didn't work, and

:05:24.:05:27.

for me, that was the arrival of Federer. It is just the way he hits

:05:28.:05:35.

the ball. Just say, we are staying on BBC One just for another five

:05:36.:05:39.

minutes or so, then we will need to BBC Two, so be prepared. This match

:05:40.:05:43.

on Centre Court will move to BBC Two. Tim, he has had such an

:05:44.:05:50.

incredible year, when you think, six months, coming back, winning the

:05:51.:05:54.

Australian Open. I, for one, have given up being surprised by him,

:05:55.:05:59.

because it is incredible, what he has achieved. To play in the

:06:00.:06:02.

semifinals here last year virtually on one leg, he lost to Raonic, then

:06:03.:06:06.

in consultation with his doctors, took the rest of the year. You

:06:07.:06:11.

think, well, that will be difficult, aged 34, to start building to come

:06:12.:06:15.

back. You can practice as much as you like, but to get the tournament

:06:16.:06:20.

play and the matches under your belt, it takes a long time. And

:06:21.:06:24.

there he is, back in Melbourne, the Grand Slam, playing some of the most

:06:25.:06:30.

amazing tennis I have ever seen. The final, when he was down 3-1 in the

:06:31.:06:34.

fifth against the Dahl, who had beaten him in so many Grand Slam

:06:35.:06:42.

finals, it was an incredible achievement -- against Nadal. He

:06:43.:06:49.

made changes to his racket, had time off, but he has come back even more

:06:50.:06:53.

aggressive. Yes, a bigger racket head. Understanding your body and

:06:54.:06:58.

managing your head is important at this age as well. He decided to take

:06:59.:07:08.

the entire clay-court season. What that matter? He lost the Tommy Haas

:07:09.:07:15.

on grass in Stuttgart... How dare he! And then he won again. You have

:07:16.:07:25.

to understand your game, how to manage your body and your time, and

:07:26.:07:30.

he does. Whatever it is, it is working, time and time again. I

:07:31.:07:34.

think rightly, he is favourite to win this tournament again. And as

:07:35.:07:38.

far as his opponent goes today, looking at the stats, yet to win a

:07:39.:07:43.

set perhaps I should whisper that. He is not the only one, to be dour,

:07:44.:07:48.

who has never won a set against Federer. They have played a couple

:07:49.:07:51.

of times this year, once on grass, which Vedder Rob won. It was a bit

:07:52.:07:56.

tighter. Let's not forget the way that Zverev played against Andy

:07:57.:08:10.

Murray. -- which Federer won. If you are going to be successful against

:08:11.:08:13.

him, you have to be aggressive and try to stop him using his full

:08:14.:08:17.

repertoire. Could he get a set today? He could, but not more than

:08:18.:08:23.

that. The other day, he said he was nervous before he came out, which

:08:24.:08:27.

amazed me. In this environment, the opposition will certainly be

:08:28.:08:30.

nervous. Guess what? We will be moving channels, so Tim and Andrew,

:08:31.:08:36.

thank you very much. We're looking forward to this. Roger Federer up

:08:37.:08:45.

against Mischa Zverev, the older brother of Sasha. We will move this

:08:46.:08:50.

match over in just a moment, so if you want to see Roger Federer in

:08:51.:08:53.

action, switch over. For now, goodbye.

:08:54.:08:58.
