Larsson 7-6(3) 2-6 0-5 Williams Venus - Well in Johanna Larsson. Venus serves for it and she breaks - can she go from here?


Larsson 7-6(3) 2-6 0-5 Williams Venus - Yeah, Venus has got this.


Larsson 7-6(3) 2-6 0-3 Williams Venus - Venus is there. She plays a wonderful point, finished with a leaping overhead, that earns her the double-break, and this is very nearly done. Larsson looks like she's been happier.


Larsson 7-6(3) 2-6 0-1 Williams Venus - Larsson is losing her rag - lovely stuff. She serves a double and drops her racket, then when she goes long with a forehand to cede the break, thereby losing her fifth game in a row, she whacks a ball after the fact and is warned.


Larsson 7-6(3) 2-3 Williams Venus - Venus breaks! She plays a fine game and looks like she's starting to fire now.


Larsson 7-6(3) 2-2 Williams Venus - Larsson will not go away and Venus won't stop serving doubles. There was pone in her first service-game of this set and another in the won she just won, but neither cost her. She does need to sort herself, but.


Larsson 7-6(3) Williams Venus - Two double faults in a row from Venus give Larsson three set-points! She's very tentative, not putting her weight into the shot, and then she plops a volley over the baseline! Venus is in all sorts, and not playing at all well, while Larsson is growing in confidence!


Larsson 6-6 Williams Venus - Venus slips in the process of going down 30-15, and then hits long; she will now face two set points! The first is saved with a fine return onto the baseline, which sets up a devastating forehand, and the second thanks to another nifty return. But Larsson isn't going away; when Venus earns a break point she attacks with her forehand to save it ... only for Venus to climb into her once more. We're going to enjoy a breaker...


Larsson 6-5 Williams Venus - Larsson is playing well here but with two break points, allows the lob over her head, thinking it was going long; it was not. But then Venus nets a backhand, and in a few moments' time, will serve for the set!


Larsson 2-1 Williams V - A good start for Larsson, who has broken.


Larsson 0-1 Williams V - Just underway on Court 2, where Venus Williams, five times singles champions and six times doubles champion is getting to it. She's seeded 9 this term, and it'd be a surprise to see her go deep, but with the women's draw and her brilliance you never know.
