  1. Post update

    Murray/Williams 7-5 3-0 Martin/Atawo*

    John Lloyd

    Former GB Davis Cup captain

    Williams is the best player on the court. The returning is staggering against a world-class doubles server.

    A fantastic performance so far.

    Serena Williams
  2. Murray/Williams hold

    Murray/Williams 7-5 3-0 Martin/*Atawo

    Serena Williams is the star performer out there so far.

    Andy Murray gets in on the applause though as he tickles away the winning drop volley at a ridiculous angle.

  3. Serena is carrying Andy

    I am going to say something I never thought I would say. Serena is carrying Andy right now.

    She is the best player on court by a mile and getting in the best positions. Her return has been fantastic.

    *Murray/Williams 7-5 2-0 Martin/Atawo

    John Lloyd

    Former GB Davis Cup captain

    I was just thinking they would have to be the greatest mixed doubles returners there have ever been

  5. Murray/Williams break

    Murray/*Williams 7-5 2-0 Martin/Atawo

    Serena Williams just minced a return to the Fabrice Martin serve, blasting a sledgehammer winner to incredulous chuckles from the Frenchman.

    Serena herself seems quite surprised to catch it so sweet.

    And Racquel Atawo nudges long to allow this particular special US-UK relationship to strengthen a little more.

  6. 'They are knocking on the door'

    Murray/Williams 7-5 1-0 *Martin/Atawo

    Mark Woodforde

    17-time Grand Slam doubles champion on BBC Radio 5 Live

    They are knocking on the door, aren’t they? Serena and Andy have been having break chances right through this match – they just need to take one of them.

  7. Martin/Atawo save third break point

    Murray/Williams 7-5 1-0 *Martin/Atawo

    A superb pick-up volley down the line from Fabrice Martin wrong-foots Serena and saves that break point...

  8. Third break point for Murray/Williams

    Murray/Williams 7-5 1-0 *Martin/Atawo

    Serena's superb returning brings up two break points.

    Fabrice Martin's big serving zaps them both.

    Here's a third, this time with Murray wearing the catcher's mitt...

  9. Post update

    Murray/Williams 7-5 1-0 Martin/Atawo*

    Chanda Rubin

    American former world number six at Wimbledon

    Martin and Atawo have played a lot at the net and where they've won a lot of the points.

    Murray and Williams are comfortable at the baseline.

  10. Murray/Williams hold

    Murray/Williams 7-5 1-0 *Martin/Atawo

    Andy Murray draws a whiff and a miss from Fabrice Martin on return, perhaps the ball skidding through off the line.

    And another big serve to Raquel Atawo and that is the game.

    An interesting TV graphic by the way showing the contrasting tactics of the pairs with Murray/Williams keeping deep on the baseline.

  11. Murray/Williams save break point, deuce

    *Murray/Williams 7-5 0-0 Martin/Atawo

    Andy Murray, what was that?

    The Scot let a Fabrice Martin return float over his shoulder, thinking it was heading out. It wasn't by a good half-foot.

    Break point for Martin/Atawo, but Murray claws it back with a neat bit of serve volley to take us back to deuce.

  12. 'There's no reason Murray can't get back to being among the top players'

    Murray/Williams 7-5 Martin/Atawo

    John Lloyd

    Former GB Davis Cup captain

    Murray has played at this mixed doubles and the doubles. He played at Queen's and Eastbourne.

    He said his back has been a little bit stiff but nothing to worry about - it's not his hip.

    He feels he can get back to the top level. You look at the gap between the top three and the rest - there's no reason he can't get back.

  13. Murray/Williams win first set

    Murray/Williams 7-5 Martin/Atawo

    Jonathan Jurejko

    BBC Sport at Wimbledon

    Think this a bit of fun? Think again. Serena's screams reach a crescendo as she celebrates those two cross-court winners which clinched the set.

    And then she shows us her slick soles with a twirl on the spot.

  14. Murray/Williams win set

    Murray/Williams 7-5 Martin/Atawo

    And it is a done deal!

    Serena Williams, who carried Andy Murray though that final game a bit, again finds the winning shot jagging a winner across court.

  15. Martin/Atawo save one set point, another

    Murray/Williams 6-5 Martin/*Atawo

    Andy Murray nets weakly on return. He looks thrown by the slower pace on the Raquel Atawo's serve...

    But here comes another set point..

  16. Serena returning better than Andy?

    Murray/Williams 6-5 Martin/*Atawo

    Laura Robson

    British tennis player

    I think Serena is returning a lot better than Andy at the moment. A lot more is coming off her racquet. She is playing more singles at the moment, so she is having a lot more practice in the back-court.

  17. Set point Murray/Williams

    Murray/Williams 6-5 Martin/Atawo*

    Fabrice Martin tries to be a little too cute, cutting his volley too fine and finding only the net to hand Ser-Andy 15-30.

    But Serena Williams rips a return into Raquel Atawo's toes to set up break and set point.

    Andy Murray on return...

  18. Post update

    Jonathan Jurejko

    BBC Sport at Wimbledon

    Fabrice Martin could crush cans with that right arm. That doesn't stop Serena Williams whacking back a 138mph serve with a double-handed backhand winner in that previous game.

    Even she looks shocked she managed to pull it off.

    Fabrice Martin
  19. Murray/Williams hold

    Murray/Williams 6-5 Martin/*Atawo

    Whether it is the dicky knee or the differing demands of doubles, Serena Williams has netted a couple of very makeable vollies.

    She gives the opposition a 40-30 sniff, but a slugged serve lures Raquel Atawo long to seal off the game.

    Atawo to serve to keep her team in the first set...

  20. 'Great practice for Serena'

    Murray/Williams 6-5 *Martin/Atawo

    Laura Robson

    British tennis player

    This is great practice for Serena because when else would you see her serve-volleying, mixing in lobs and drive volleys?

    I think after having such a good time today in the singles she will be looking to play more doubles in future.
