Muguruza 6-2 7-5 Broady - A double-fault gives Muguruza 0-30 and then Broady goes long. Three more match-points, and this time the champion needs only one, a punishing forehand enough to finish things off. She plays Hercog or Van Uytvanck next, and has a good shot at retaining her title. I think it might be early for Halep on grass and Wozniacki is never doing it; those are the two seeded above her. Below her, it's only Serena who can get close if she plays as she can, and she's in the bottom half of the draw. As for Broady, she competed well but what can you do.


Muguruza 6-2 4-5 Broady - Broady finds herself match-point down at 30-40 and is down in the rally too, but then form eight feet behind the baseline unfurls an inside-out backhand down the line! What a shot! And when she gets to advantage, Muguruza somehow misses an overhead, and must now serve to stay in the set!


Muguruza 6-2 4-4 Broady - This is very impressive from Broady, who is hanging in there. But can she maintain it at the business end?


Muguruza 6-2 1-1 Broady - Broady finds herself 0-30 down, but fights her way to deuce, saves break point, and then rattles down consecutive aces. She likes them, a lot. In commentary earlier they were talking about how her family falling out with LTA hampered her career. I mean, what sort of sport allows something like that to be significant?


Muguruza 6-2 Broady - I'm not sure anyone in the women's game bar Serena can rival Muguruza for court presence, and she's worked Broady here, who started nervously. Serving at 2-5 it's quickly 0-40, and though Broady nicks a point back, she's soon wrongfooted, a metaphor for the set really.
