14:30 - Serena to the BBC: "I've never played Kimiko Date-Krumm but Venus has. So I'll definitely be speaking to her." She also had complimentary words about Caroline Garcia and her "amazing" serve.
14:24 - WILLIAMS 6-3 5-2 GARCIA: Serena claws her way back into the game from 40-15 down but nets an easy winner and screams with frustration! Can Garcia hold?
14:21 - WILLIAMS 6-3 5-2 GARCIA: The Frenchwoman must serve to stay in the match here, having surrendered a second break to the world number one.
14:08 - WILLIAMS 6-3 2-2 GARCIA: There's so much to admire about this Caroline Garcia performance - she went a break down early in the second but immediately hit back and is showing fantastic poise in this, the biggest match of her career to date.
13:49 - WILLIAMS 6-3 GARCIA: Garcia nets a seemingly easy pass, and Serena takes the first set. But it has been entertaining stuff and far from the bloodbath many (me included) expected.
13:44 - WILLIAMS 5-3 GARCIA: Tremendous fight from Garcia as she saves a set point with a serve-volley and a cool second volley to bring up deuce.
13:40 - WILLIAMS 4-3 GARCIA: A strange moment there as Garcia slips over leaving Serena with an empty court to play into, but the world number one loops the ball long off the frame of her racket!
13:37 - WILLIAMS 4-3 GARCIA: A fine serving display from Garcia, who is slight but gives the ball a real clout. Her mentor, the 2006 winner Amelie Mauresmo, is in the crowd and will be quietly pleased with what she has seen so far. Still, Serena is up a break.
13:31 - WILLIAMS 3-2 GARCIA: Now Serena makes the breakthrough, finally getting to the Garcia serve and the Frenchwoman must break Serena if she is to take this first set.
13:25 - WILLIAMS 1-2 GARCIA: This is impressive from the 19-year-old Frenchwoman who is smacking down serves above 100mph. She comes from 15-30 down to hold for a second time. But Serena is also striking the ball well.
13:18 - WILLIAMS 0-1 GARCIA: No sign of nerves from the big-serving Frenchwoman Garcia, who thumps a double-fisted backhand winner to take the first game to love. Well colour me surprised.
13:08 - It's showtime on Court One! Serena Williams and Caroline Garcia come out to a warm ovation - it's not quite full yet but it's not far off. This could be a blink-and-you-miss-it affair.
