  1. - - CLIJSTERS 6-3 4-3 - GAME, SET & MATCH - Or make that no games as Zvonareva decides enough is enough and retires sick. Clijsters through to face Angelique Kerber in the next round, the German eighth seed beating American Christina McHale 6-2 6-3 just a few minutes ago. Full women's drawsheet

  2. - - CLIJSTERS 6-3 4-3 - Clijsters holds with ease before breaking to love when Zvonareva hits a forehand into the net. The Belgian now potentially just a couple of games away from the fourth round

  3. - - CLIJSTERS 6-3 2-3 - Zvonareva appears to be cruising towards a more comfortable service hold for a change before Clijsters applies the pressure once more at levels at deuce. She doesn't enjoy a break point chance this time around though and Zvonareva holds from there to sneak out in front once again in this second set

  4. - - CLIJSTERS 6-3 2-2 - That break seems to have done little to affect Clijsters's mind-set as she races through another service hold to fling all the pressure back on to Zvonareva

  5. - - Clijsters attempting to stay warm and limber but playing a bit of shadow tennis after Zvonareva departs the court for a medical timeout. The doctor was listening to Zvonareva's chest and checking her pulse before deciding the timeout was needed

  6. - - CLIJSTERS 6-3 1-2 - Clijsters yet again enjoys break points before the Russian goes on to hold with a forehand winer. Zvonareva has called for the trainer, and more specifically the doctor, for the change of ends as she sobs her way through most of that game

  7. - - CLIJSTERS 6-3 1-1 - Just like the start of the first set, Clijsters races through a quick service hold (Zvonareva hitting long to hand the game to the Belgian) to sling all the pressure back on her opponent

  8. - - CLIJSTERS 6-3 0-1 - Zvonareva is forced to save yet another break point, that's 10 now that she has saved, the chance going begging for Clijsters when she hits a forehand long. And the Russian, eventually, goes on to hold after a series of deuces and game points

  9. - - CLIJSTERS 6-3 - SET - Yes, is the straight-forward answer as Clijsters races through her first service hold since the early stages of this match. She holds for the loss of just the one point when Zvonareva sends a forehand long, leaving the Russian bouncing her racquet off the turf not once but twice, just to make her frustration known

  10. - - CLIJSTERS 5-3 - BREAK - The wind is still a little bit swirly over on Court One but that's not really any excuse for either of these ladies as Zvonareva fails yet again to produce a hold, Clijsters instead breaking with a forehand winner to earn the chance to serve for the set. Can she hold though?

  11. - - CLIJSTERS 4-3 - BREAK - Breaks galore out on Court One as Clijsters again fails to maintain her advantage. Just like her last service game, she saves the first break point with a forehand winner but can do nothing about the second and sends a forehand long to hand Zvonareva the game back. The Russian still trails, albeit on serve

  12. - - CLIJSTERS 4-2 - BREAK - After working hard to get herself back in this opening set and also being firmly in control of the rally right on the baseline, Zvonareva is furious with herself for hitting what should be a routine forehand into the net and handing Clijsters the break advantage once more

  13. - - CLIJSTERS 3-2 - BREAK - Better again from Zvonareva as Clijsters is faced with two break points. She saves the first with a forehand down the line but can do nothing about the second as Zvonareva reacts well to a ball back behind her before puting up a decent forehand passing shot that Clijsters can only return into the net, despite doing well to get a racquet to it

  14. - - CLIJSTERS 3-1 - Zvonareva finally gets off the mark after an epic game that saw Clijsters enjoy five, yep five, break points. The Belgian failed to take advantage of any of them, however, the last of which was perhaps the easiest as she had plenty of time to get up to a poor drop shot only to put her forehand into the net. And the Russian goes on to hold when Clijsters hits a cross court forehand wide

  15. - - CLIJSTERS 3-0 - Wow! Clijsters races through a love service hold to consolidate the early break. Obviously Clijsters's lack of a seeding is mis-leading, and due to injury, but she has still made a cracking start to this clash and has Zvonareva struggles to find her footing

  16. - - CLIJSTERS 2-0 - BREAK - Zvonareva saves an early break point when she finally puts away a smash at the third attempt but a forehand long of the baseline a few points later gives Clijsters a second chance. And this time she takes it, pushing Zvonareva deep behind the baseline and drawing the forehand into the net

  17. - - CLIJSTERS 1-0 - A very solid start from Clijsters, as she opens with a hold to 15 with a forehand winner. Great movement from the Belgian in the opening game of this set
