  1. Post update

    *Evans 6-4 4-6 5-7 6-4 2-3 Sousa

    Both players are tired, but the rallies are getting longer, not shorter. It is a real war of attrition out there now, and it is Sousa who comes out on top, although I am not entirely sure how.

    One rally ends with Evans on his belly at the net and the ball flying beyond the Portuguese's baseline. Another sees Sousa claw two smashes back before Evans sends a third one long.

    The end result is that Sousa holds.

  3. Sousa breaks back

    Evans 6-4 4-6 5-7 6-4 2-2 *Sousa

    Agony for Evans at 15-all, when he sets up the point to perfection but takes the wrong option with Sousa at his mercy at the net, and ends up gifting him an easy volley.

    He needs to forget that straight away, and is helped when he correctly challenges when his next serve is called long. He still needs to win this point though, and he does it with a lovely short sliced shot that just clears the net and barely bounces.

    That brings Evans back to 30-all, but he is soon back in trouble with a double-fault.

    So, break-point, and breaking point for Evans sliced backhand. Sousa keeps asking questions, and eventually Evans drops one too short. It barely reaches the net, let alone gets over it... and we are back on serve. I can't take much more of this.

  4. We are used to being bossed - Murray

    Williams/Murray 6-4 6-1 Mies/Guarachi

    Andy Murray, after mixed doubles win alongside Serena Williams, tells BBC Sport: "I obviously lost in the men's doubles so all my energy is on this. It was a good start, we returned good and both of us served well."

    Who's the boss? "We are both the youngest siblings so we are used to being bossed."

    And fitness? "My back was a bit stiff after the doubles and the hip is fine."

  5. Evans breaks again

    *Evans 6-4 4-6 5-7 6-4 2-1 Sousa

    Evans gets to 0-30 again on the Sousa serve. Will more break-points follow, to add to the 22 he has had in this match?

    YES - eventually - when a Sousa volley flies wide to leave him at 15-40. The Portuguese player is not happy, because he felt he should have had a let on his first serve.

    More importantly, can Evans break? YES. YES he can. a forehand into the corner is followed by an overhead winner on to the same spot.

    Evans has been a break up in all five sets... can he see this one out?

  6. 'We're a team and there's no 'i' in team'

    Williams/Murray 6-4 6-1 Mies/Guarachi

    Serena Williams speaking to BBC Sport: "We've never played together so it's always a learning curve. We wanted to start off fast and we take this very seriously."

    Who's the boss? "We're a team and there's no 'i' in team."

    "I feel good and am happy to be alive in this."

    Murray and Williams
  7. A solid start for Evans

    Evans 6-4 4-6 5-7 6-4 1-1 *Sousa

    Evans is on the attack from the off here, and not allowing Sousa to dictate the pace of the game. It works. A solid service game and we are all-square and on-serve in the fifth.

  8. 'They got better and better'

    Williams/Murray 6-4 6-1 Mies/Guarachi

    Chanda Rubin

    American former world number six at Wimbledon

    You can see as the match went on they got better and better. They served well and the returns were fine and there some nice moves up at the net.

  9. Game, set and match Williams/Murray

    Williams/Murray 6-4 6-1 Mies/Guarachi

    But of course, as Murray guides a forehand winner away from the reach of his opponents.

  10. Post update

    Williams/Murray 6-4 5-1 Mies/Guarachi*

    Murray brings up another with a smashed winner.

    This time?

  11. Post update

    *Evans 6-4 4-6 5-7 6-4 0-1 Sousa

    Sousa makes quite a racket when he hits the ball, as you may have noticed (or, more likely, heard). With the roof closed, it echoes around the arena.

    Anyway, back to the tennis. Sousa recovers from 0-30 to hold. How will Dan Evans fare next?

  12. Post update

    Williams/Murray 6-4 5-1 Mies/Guarachi*

    Mies saves the first and the second.

    He's been excellent.

  13. Post update

    Williams/Murray 6-4 5-1 Mies/Guarachi*

    Murray then produces his shot of the contest - a feathery sliced angled backhand to bring up two match-points.

  14. Post update

    Williams/Murray 6-4 5-1 Mies/Guarachi*

    15-0 as Williams misses a 'makeable' forehand return.

    Equaliser! Thanks to Murray's winner before Guarachi double-faults.


  15. A one-set shoot-out

    Evans 6-4 4-6 5-7 6-4 0-0 *Sousa

    Evans and Sousa started this match outdoors, around three hours and 15 minutes ago. They are going to finish it indoors, under the new Court One roof, and under some very bright lights.

    "The quality has been extremely high, and now we are going to have a one-set shoot-out," says Tim Henman.

  16. Post update

    Williams/Murray 6-4 5-1 Mies/Guarachi*

    Williams pats back a volley from a vicious Mies return without her wrist bending back.





    Murray fires down a brilliant serve as the pair move to one game from victory.

    Guarachi to serve.

  17. Saturday night lights

    Evans 6-4 4-6 5-7 6-4 0-0 *Sousa

    The players are back out, and the lights are on. They are just going to have a short warm-up before they get the deciding set under way.

    "When you have a change of condition, even though they haven't been off court too long, the players are entitled to a five-minute warm-up," explains Tim Henman in the BBC commentary box.

  18. Post update

    *Williams/Murray 6-4 4-1 Mies/Guarachi

    Beautiful soft hands from Andreas Mies, whose volley is too good for Murray.

    He then notches up a game on the board for Team MiGu (they need a pet name don't they?) with a good first serve.
