6-4 - GAME, SET AND MATCH ERRANI! A love game from Errani. She sees out the set on serve for a 6-2 6-4 win. A composed victory in just over one hour. She will face Ana Ivanovic or Serena Williams in the last four.
5-4 - BREAK ERRANI 5-4 - Superb stuff from Errani to breaK when she needed it most. Has won four out of five break points in this match. Will serve for the match.
4-4 - 4-4 - Errani holds herself together well to restore parity by holding serve in the death throes of the second set. Errani has won 53 points in the match compared to 45 by her opponent. Vinci showing some fight, but will it be enough to rescue this situation.
3-4 - VINCI 4-3 - An important hold for Vinci as she moves ahead by the odd game in seven in this second set. Pressure being applied to her compatriot. Probably for the first time in this match.
3-3 - BREAK VINCI! This match not slipping quietly into the night. Vinci has made 29 errors compared to 14 by Errani, but somehow Vinci is level at 3-3 with another timely break.
3-2 - ERRANI 3-2 It might be the last eight, but the US crowd are hardly warming to this match. Plenty of empty spaces on the court. Errani looking good to progress, but Vinci keeps her honest by holding in the fifth game.
3-1 - ERRANI 3-1 - A quick game on serve from Errani. Just moving better and hitting through the ball a whole lot better as she cements the break for a 3-1 lead. Halfway to heaven. Or at least the last four.
2-1 - 2-1 - BREAK ERRANI! Vinci continues to bleed unforced errors as her error count goes to 22 unforced errors in being broken again. Errani the odd game ahead with the break.
1-1 - BREAK VINCI! First break of the match and Vinci is level at 1-1 in the second set. First real lapse in concentration of the match by Errani and her opponent pounces to break back.
1-0 - BREAK ERRANI! Another break at the outset of the second set for Errani, who should surely see this match out if she maintains her intesity. Easier said than done right enough.
6-2 - SET ERRANI 6-2 Not exactly a full house in Louis Armstrong to see Errani finish off the set by holding serve. That is a first set you can only dream about in a Grand Slam quarter-final. Looks to have the measure of Vinci as the French Open finalist closes in on the last four.
5-2 - BREAK ERRANI! ERRANI 5-2 - The break falls in favour of Errani as Vinci fails to convert a volley at the net. And that is the double break. Errani will come out to serve for the opening set.
4-2 - ERRANI 4-2 - Another game passes, another hold for Errani who is within touching distance of the first set. Another two games will do the job for the 10th seeded Italian.
3-2 - Vinci taken to deuce on her service game, but manages to escape holding serve to stay in touch. She trails by the odd game in five. Vinci with the break.
3-1 - Errani continues to look the likelier player in this set as she moves 3-1 to the good with the break in hand.
2-1 - ERRANI 2-1 - Vinci calms the nerves a bit by holding for the first time in the match. She trails 2-1 and is a break down.
2-0 - Errani cements the break for a 2-0 lead. All looking very good so far for the 10th seed. Vinci yet to truly settle.
1-0 - BREAK ERRANI! ERRANI 1-0 Vinci looking a bit unsteady in the opening game of the match as she drops serve to hand the initiative firmly to her compatriot.
0-0 - The all-Italian match in the last 16 is about to start with Vinci to serve in the opening game.
