  • SET ONE LANDED!

    Andy Murray and Joe Salisbury take the first set 6-2.

    The pair hold in their opening service game in the second set as they look set to progress to the semis.

  • WALKDEN INTO THE SEMIS

    A very accomplished performance from Walkden as she continues to manage the final minute.

    There are more chances to counter but she seems fine to hold onto what she has.

    She does add one further point in the final minute to take it 17-7.

  • WALKDEN 16-7 DENIZ

    Deniz comes out on the attack and Walkden with good management and counters supremely well, finding the trunk twice to move a further four points clear.

    A minute to go.

  • END OF SECOND ROUND

    Bianca Walkden now in the ascendancy as she causes problems with her head kicks.

    Walkden moves 7-4 ahead before the Kazakh pulls it back level.

    Walkden’s pair of good kicks has her 12-7 ahead.

     

  • WALKDEN 6-4 DENIZ

    End of the first period and Walkden now holds a lead.

    A great head-kick from Bianca sends here into the lead before her opponent responds with a punch.

    Slight concern as the doctor is called after a punch to the face to Walkden and there’s a timeout. Thankfully, she is OK to continue.

  • WALKDEN 2-3 DENIZ

    A promising start for the Kazakh who races to a 3-0 lead after a punch before finding the trunk.

    Walkden on the board with a punch.

  • WALKDEN ARRIVES

    Bianca Walkden is about to begin her quarter-final against Kazakh Cansel Deniz.

    The three-time world champion will be confident but wary in this +67kg contest.

     

  • SAVED!

    Murray and Salisbury survive two break points on the opening service game after the delay.

    They lead 1-3 in the first set.

  • BACK OUT ON COURT

    And Murray and Joe Salisbury are back out on court and warming up ahead of their doubles match against Kevin Krawietz and Tim Puetz.

    The Brits with an early break before the rain forced play to stop.

    They have the serve and a 2-1 lead in set one.

  • HOCKEY STANDINGS

    Great Britain in a good position to qualify despite this morning’s thumping.

    They sit in third in Pool B with the top four qualifying for the quarter-finals.

  • OSAKA IS OUT!

    The golden girl of Tokyo 2020 is OUT as Naomi Osaka loses in her third round match.

    She lit the cauldron on Friday night but was missing a spark this morning.

    Osaka loses in straight sets to world No42 Marketa Vondrousova from the Czech Republic.

    With Ash Barty also out, the women’s draw blows wide open.

  • FT! GREAT BRITAN 1-5 GERMANY

    The Germans with a dominant display as they take the points.

    Britain held an early lead through Roper against the run of play.

    But since then, the Germans took control.

  • GOAL! GREAT BRITAIN 1-5 GERMANY

    A disappointing afternoon is capped off with another German goal.

    A penalty corner is well-saved by Payne.

    But as the red jerseys all wait for each other to clear it, Fuchs pounces to knock home another for him and for Germany.

  • ON SERVE

    Osaka still struggling to break down Vondrousova.

    The Czech serving out a nervy service game to take a 4-3 lead in the second set.

    Osaka with all the pressure on now on her serve.

  • DUBOIS WINS

    Her Olympic debut and it’s a convincing win for Caroline Dubois.

    Unanimous decision in the end after a cool, dominant display.

    Harder opponents will come for Dubois but she does what she has to.

    America’s Rashida Ellis to come in the round of 16.

  • GOAL! GREAT BRITAIN 1-4 GERMANY

    Germans running riot now.

    Fuch’s smashes a cross across goal and Sandford diverts it into his own net.

  • IN THE RING

    Caroline Dubois is in the ring as she gets set to begin her 60kg journey.

    It’s the preliminary round of the lightweight division.

  • GOAL! BREAT BRITAIN 1-3 GERMANY

    Really poor defending as four red shirts allow Grambusch to drive into the circle.

    They all stand and watch as the German squares it across goal, just evading a touch from Payne in goal.

    Weigand can’t miss as he flicks home into an empty net with a few minutes to go in Q3.

  • SHOCK ON THE CARDS?

    The Olympic Games poster girl Naomi Osaka is a set down to world number 42 Marketa Vondrousova.

    The Czech takes the opening set 6-1 in just under 25 minutes.

    Is the pressure too much on Osaka? Or can she use ‘home advantage’ to her advantage?

  • GOAL! GREAT BRITAIN 1-2 GERMANY

    Britain receive a green card and their opponents pounce.

    It’s worked wide on the left to Christopher Ruhr, who has a go at goal from a tight angle.

    But what an effort it is, flying past Payne in goal and just under the crossbar.

  • PEATY REACTS

    Adam Peaty with a social media shout out for the British pair earlier this morning.

  • NO SIGN YET

    The players remain in the locker room as the outer courts are still out of action for the tennis.

    Wind and rain causing havoc, just a few days after players complained the weather was too warm.

    There’s some irony in there somewhere.

  • HT IN THE HOCKEY: GREAT BRITAIN 1 GERMANY 1

    Fuchs’ goal cancels out the earlier Roper opener.

    Germany have undoubtedly created the most chances with Payne being the busier of the two keepers.

  • TSITSIPAS REVENGE

    Last month saw the shock defeat of Stefanos Tsitsipas to American Frances Tiafoe in the Wimbledon first round.

    The Greek appears to have learned that difficult lesson as he goes through in straight sets 6-3, 6-4.

    World number four Tsitsipas will play either Ugo Humbert of France or Serbia’s Miomir Kecmanovic in round three,

  • COMING LATER

    Is the Team GB footballers as they take on Canada.

    Kick-off is at 11am UK time as the Brits look to make it three from three to start these Games.

    In case you missed it yesterday, this was their reaction yesterday to the news that Tom Daley and Matty Lee had won gold.
