    Watson is clearly being outclassed by Serena. Already a break down. Can only see this match going one way.
    I did after the first set too, but Heather was superb in that second set, I don't know how she's did that, incredible!!

    Yes Watson is actually making a match of it now. However I think it's more a case of Serena beating herself, rather than Watson beating Serena.

    It's the crowd that's getting on her back. But Watson deserves credit for the way she's playing. She creates some brilliant angles and has a neat backhand. She's making Serena work for every point and there's no other way to play her to be honest. We all know if Williams turns it up she is too powerful.

    Too many times this season, Serena has played average and still ended up winning. It looks like her luck will run out today.

    Although the crowd are definitely behind Watson, and may be slightly annoying, Serena isn't used to not having the crowd behind her!

    Williams is going to win as long as she doesn't stop the stupid mistakes which cost her.

    It's pretty tense though still, I know I should be backing Watson but I just prefer Williams in this match.

    And Watson has lost. Way closer than I expected, but that was only because of the crowd. That same match played at any other venue, Serena would have absolutely crushed Watson.

    Watson played her best tennis and still lost. That's why Serena has 20 slams and the #1 ranking. What a champion!

    The crowd certainly lifted her, but you can't attribute it all to the crowd, they weren't on the court matching Serena Williams for 2 sets, Heather Watson was, she was extremely resilient against the relentless power of Serena's shots and did brilliantly to get herself back into a match which looked beyond her after the first set. Hopefully Heather can move on from here up the rankings and maybe go further next year.

    Serena won because the difference in skill between them is quite big. Serena made LOADS of bad shots and mistakes and still won. This was one of her worst matches this year and we get to see Venus vs Serena now. Watson played well though.

    Anyone queued for tickets at Wimbledon before?

    I want to ask whether it's worth me going there tomorrow. I plan to join the queue at around 5am. Would I get a ground pass? and what time would I get into the inside?

    I've queued 4 times- although I have always went the night before for centre/ court 1/ court 2.

    You tend to find, from the first tube to arrive at Southfields [Near queue] it really starts to fill up.

    By 5AM you would be highly likely to get ground passes, and I would say you would be in before 11am-Midday, perfect for the start of play. I can't guarantee this, but I am going on a guesstimation based on previous years.

    Poor Watson. She gave it her all. Losing that break in the final set did her in, though. It was all downhill from there - and Serena turned it on in style and was relentless.
