  1. - - KERBER 6-1 6-2 - GAME, SET AND MATCH! Kerber not made to wait long - after a four-hour epic between Murray and Lopez in the previous match on Louis Armstrong, Kerber takes just 56 minutes to book her place in the next round, finishing with a backhand driven down the line. Very, very simple. And it looks like Sara Errani for her next. Draw

  2. - - KERBER 6-1 5-2 - And she backs it up with a hold to love. The German now just a game away from the last 16.

  3. - - KERBER 6-1 4-2 - BREAK! And that could be the crucial one - Kerber returning with purpose and running down every ball. What hope left for Govortsova?

  4. - - KERBER 6-1 3-2 - Not one-way traffic any more, but Kerber doing enough to keep her nose in front in the second set. It's at this point that the German's experience could tell - and scoreboard pressure on the Belarusian will begin to pile up.

  5. - - KERBER 6-1 2-2 - Impressive from Govortsova - having held her serve just once all match, she manages to do so to love now.

  6. - - KERBER 6-1 2-1 - Kerber working nicely behind her own serve, and making it look as if that break a couple of games ago was an aberration, not a sign that the game is turning.

  7. - - KERBER 6-1 1-1 - BREAK! Easy come, easy go that break. Kerber plays some fabulous groundstrokes, raking low across the net, and Govortsova buckles at 30-40 down. As you were.

  8. - - KERBER 6-1 0-1 - BREAK! Well, where did that come from? Kerber looked in control, even in the game itself, but after a visit from the physio Govortsova finds a way to break the German. The crowd would love a contest here, and are lending their support to the Belarusian.

  9. - - KERBER 6-1 0-0 - Govortsova is going to continue. If she's under the weather, then this heat and an uncompromising oppornent is a bad combination.

  10. - - KERBER 6-1 0-0 - Govortsova not at all happy here - she's got the trainer on, and she's having her blood pressure measured.

  11. - - KERBER 6-1 - SET! Quick, but presumably painful for the Belarusian. Kerber has sealed the set in just 22 minutes, and it's going to take some drastic improvements from Govortsova to turn this one around.

  12. - - KERBER 5-1 - Kerber not a flashy player, but has quietly moved into the upper echelons of the tennis scene this year. Now just a game away from the opening set.

  13. - - KERBER 4-1 - Govortsova on the board at last. The numbers tell the story so far - Kerber hitting seven winners to Govortsova's two, with the Belarusian making nine unforced errors to Kerber's two.

  14. - - KERBER 4-0 - This could be over in a hurry at this rate. Govortsova, the world number 67, just cannot get on terms with the German.

  15. - - KERBER 3-0 - BREAK! And it goes from bad to worse for Govortsova. She's been on court seven minutes, and she's halfway to losing the set, losing four points in a row and surrendering this game with a tame lob that loops out.

  16. - - KERBER 2-0 - BREAK! And the early advantage firmly with the sixth seed - Govortsova had a good run out at New Haven, thanks in part to a walkover when Radwanska had to pull out of their match, but has started slowly here.

  17. - - On court now, Angelique Kerber, who swatted aside Anne Keothavong of GB in round one, is in play against Olga Govortsova on Louis Armstrong.
