Wimbledon 2011: Live - Venus Williams v Kimiko Date-Krumm. Venus 6-7 (6-8) 6-3 3-2 Date-Krum If you're looking for signs which way this match might go, Venus has just held to love in a tenth of the time it took her opponent to hang on to her previous serve. Smart cash still on the six-time champion.

Quite a few hats being worn in the crowd, which is surprising considering we're virtually indoors. I guess if you've made the effort to select one/purchase, you want to make the most of it. Superior hitting from Venus, point for her third break of serve on the bounce - huzzah! first ace of the match from KDK, and the patrons applaud her pluck. Backhand out wide - called out, and with it the game, but hold on - the umpire has overruled. In, clean winner, off the hook. Wide again, another break point, saved with a hurried Venus backhand into the net. Great game, this, another rapier exchange as Venus flashes a winner down the line and KDK punches away a volley. 10 minute game, match-time to two hours 16 mins. Gripping.

Come on Kimiko - what's left in the locker? A dipping forehand cross court, that's what - sweetly struck, and the crowd love that. Venus to the net, long legs flashing... oh, a nick on the net-cord, and KDK's feeble backhand skips right over Venus's waiting flay-trap. Chance here for an unlikely break-back - first serve into the net, second serve... into the net! Break-back it is, much to the crowd's delight.
