Sue Barker presents live coverage of the 2009 women's singles final from the famous Centre Court at Wimbledon, which has witnessed some classic finals in the past.

Twenty five years ago, Martina Navratilova once again saw off her great rival, Chris Evert, to take the title, while 10 years ago, Steffi Graf's last appearance in a Wimbledon final ended in defeat to Lindsay Davenport of the USA. Since then, the title has been dominated by American winners, with eight of the last 10 champions hailing from across the Atlantic. Last year, it was Venus Williams who lifted the famous Venus Rosewater dish for a fifth time – following a straight-sets victory against her sister, Serena.

Coverage continues on BBC Two with the men's and women's doubles finals. Last year's men's final saw Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjic win their first Grand Slam title, with Zimonjic playing through the pain barrier after breaking a bone in his wrist. The programme also features interviews and reaction from the women's singles final.

At 10.30pm on BBC Two, John Inverdale is joined in the studio by former champions who offer their views on the day's events in Today At Wimbledon.

Viewers can catch up with yesterday's men's semi-final matches in Yesterday At Wimbledon on BBC Two at 6am.

Wimbledon and Today At Wimbledon are simulcast on the BBC HD channel – the BBC's High Definition channel available through Freesat, Sky and Virgin Media.

Ruth lets slip to Sarah Evans that she is no longer seeing Dr Faldren, as the medical drama continues. However, she is forced to make amends when Sarah tells her that her relationship worked in her favour with the Board. Ruth calls on Jay for help, who reluctantly stifles his anger and helps her consolidate her position.

Big Mac is targeted by the Malones, who attack him while he is on his daily patrol. Rescued by a local football team, he is unaware that the Malones are still watching.

Jordan, meanwhile, has resolved to start treatment and makes arrangements to cover his post while he is away. However, his first choice, Adam, is distracted by Jessica's absence and Zoe is incensed that Jordan is trying to cover up his illness and refuses to be complicit in his lie.

Ruth is played by Georgia Taylor, Jay by Ben Turner, Big Mac by Charles Dale, Jordan by Michael French, Adam by Tristan Gemmill and Zoe by Sunetra Sarker.
