  1. - - WILLIAMS 2-6 6-1 4-6 - GAME, SET, MATCH! - Lisicki has done it! At the end of a brilliant rally from deuce Lisicki converts her second match point to knock the top seed and defending champion out!

  2. - - WILLIAMS 2-6 6-1 4-5 - BREAK! - Serena is all over the place - slips and wrong-footing galore, just like in the first, and Lisicki is right on her case. Serena goes out under zero pressure on the break point and Sabine serves for the upset.

  3. - - WILLIAMS 2-6 6-1 4-4 - Big hold from Lisicki, who is back to out-working Serena after caving a little to Williams's bounce back to form in the second set and early in this one.

  4. - - WILLIAMS 2-6 6-1 4-3 - BREAK! - Again Lisicki breaks, making it three games in a row against serve. Serena put herself in hot water by shanking a routine cross-court drop with plenty of space to finish the point and a superb Lisicki return seals the break to 30.

  5. - - WILLIAMS 2-6 6-1 4-2 - BREAK! - Perhaps not, as Serena getting her break back immediately will not doubt prove a demoraliser to Lisicki.

  6. - - WILLIAMS 2-6 6-1 3-2 - BREAK! - From 15-40 down Lisicki battles to deuce and breaks Serena's serve for the first time since the opening set on first advantage. Game back on, perhaps?

  7. - - WILLIAMS 2-6 6-1 3-1 - Lisicki is put under pressure but she avoids a double break well with her first hold of the set.

  8. - - WILLIAMS 2-6 6-1 2-0 - BREAK! - Serena looking to put that miserable opening set behind her now as she goes a break up in short order in the decider.

  9. - - WILLIAMS 2-6 6-1 - SET! - They may be going 40-40 and beyond more often than not, but two one-sided sets mean Lisicki and Williams go to a decider in just over an hour in a fascinating contest on Centre.

  10. - - WILLIAMS 2-6 5-1 - BREAK! - Double break for Serena - she is coming out of these long battles from deuce victoriously now having been worn down by the bigger battles in set one. Serves for a deciding set.

  11. - - WILLIAMS 2-6 3-1 - BREAK! - Here comes that Serena fightback as she breaks early in set two. She's having far more luck dictating movement now and when she looks less awkward out there, she's not wasting nearly as many winners or chances to break.

  12. - - WILLIAMS 2-6 1-1 - Williams is blown away by Lisicki's first serve of the second set but ends a rare run of five straight dropped games by holding in the second.

  13. - - WILLIAMS 2-6 - SET! - Lisicki's patience has paid off and she wraps it up with a tremendous break to love against the out-of-sorts Williams. She's a set up.

  14. - - WILLIAMS 2-5 - Again we go to deuce but Lisicki is keeping the levels up and holds. She'll have a few pops at taking the first set against top seed Williams here.

  15. - - WILLIAMS 2-4 - BREAK! - Serena continues to look sluggish and the long average game time is working into Lisicki's game plan nicely. Her plan to outlast Williams leads to the first break of the match.

  16. - - WLLIAMS 2-2 - Serena isn't her imperious self to start, but she holds serve a second time in a long, arduous eight-minute game. Her movement is a little awkward so far but Liscki has maintained a strong presence to prevent Serena from dominating from the off.

  17. - - WILLIAMS 1-1 - In her first serve, Serena is authorative as ever and quickly ties things up.

  18. - - WILLIAMS 0-1 - Serena gets an early break point but Liscki does well to hang on and start with a hold from deuce.

  19. - - Lisicki will serve first against Williams. And Centre Court is up and running!

  20. - - Meanwhile, top seed Serena Williams looks to get by 23rd seed Sabine Lisicki on Centre. Both contests will be underway shortly.
