'We will try to fix anything'

Williams 6-2 4-6 7-5 Watson

BBC Radio 5 live

More quotes from Heather Watson's coach Diego Veronelli. He tells BBC Radio 5 live: "There are a lot of good things to take from this. Right now, she said she didn't play well enough in the big moments.

"The difference was very little and we will watch the game over and try to fix anything we need to."

'Heather had been dreaming of this day'

Williams 6-2 4-6 7-5 Watson

BBC Radio 5 live

Heather Watson's coach, Diego Veronelli, has been talking to BBC Radio 5 live. He says: "I'm so proud. There are a lot of positives to take but it is hard to talk. I felt she deserved to win but you have to win the last point.

"That game at 3-0, if she had taken it and gone 4-0 then that would've been crucial, but once it was 3-1 Serena got back into the match.

"We both said before the match that we don't just want a decent match, we want to win. Heather has been dreaming of this day since she was 11 or 12 years old - to play the world number one on Centre Court and she was right there, but right now it's hard to speak."

"Super, super close"

Williams 6-2 4-6 7-5 Watson

Heather Watson: "Maybe I will reflect on this more positively in a few weeks time, but maybe not.

"I am disappointed that I did not achieve my goal of making the second week of a Grand Slam. But I was super, super close and after the second set I played very smart."

Beat Serena next time?

Williams 6-2 4-6 7-5 Watson

Heather Watson: "I know how I'd play if I played her again. I wish I could have played one point differently to see how it might have changed things."

"Best atmosphere I have ever played in"

Williams 6-2 4-6 7-5 Watson

Heather Watson: "I was not handling her pace very well at the start and I was not sticking to the game plan I had although I don't think that she let me to be fair.

"It was the best atmosphere that I have played in at Wimbledon. I didn't get tired during the match, that is one of my strengths and I tried to use that.

"I got use to the feel of the ball off her racquet - it was hard and heavy - and hopefully that will help me when I play her again."

'I can compete with the best'

Williams 6-2 4-6 7-5 Watson

Heather Watson: "I had chances and it was so close with points that could have gone either way but when she needs to hit a winner she does it.

"But I've learned I can compete with the best in the world."

'I'm disappointed'

Williams 6-2 4-6 7-5 Watson

Heather Watson: "I was two points away from winning that match so I am pretty disappointed. The atmosphere was fantastic and pushed me on, but I just wished I could have closed it out.

"I wouldn't call losing the greatest day of my career. I am pleased that I gave myself the chance to play the best in the world and gave myself the opportunity to beat her. I didn't take it, but I hope the experience will help me next time.

"She had a lot of free points on her serve."

Hear from Heather

Heather Watson is now talking to the press.... here's what she has to say...

Centre Court - 13:00 BST start

Samuel Groth (Aus) vs Roger Federer (Sui) [2]

Jelena Jankovic (Ser) [28] vs Petra Kvitova (Cze) [2]

Andreas Seppi (Ita) [25] vs Andy Murray (GBR) [3]

Caught your breathe? Pulse rate returning to something near normal? Good, don't take down the bunting though...

There are a couple of Brits could use some of that stirring support tomorrow on the show courts.

Here is the order of play.

Williams 6-2 4-6 7-5 Watson

Justine Henin

Seven-time Grand Slam champion on BBC Radio 5 live

"Not only did Heather hit the ball very well, she played a perfect match tactically. She was very good in defence and tried to put some pressure on Serena. But what Heather missed was hitting more winners. To make the difference she could be more aggressive."

Jeff Tarango

Former professional tennis player on BBC Radio 5 live

"Serena had a bad day and she somehow pulled it through. I expect a lot more drama and a lot more effort from Serena as the tournament goes on."

'Heather's backhand was world class'

More quotes from Great Britain's Fed Cup captain Judy Murray.

"After the first set was so one-sided, Heather's backhand was world class and she can take a lot of encouragement from that performance. Hopefully it will spur her on to greater things," Murray tells BBC Radio 5 live.

"I hope she can get over it quite quickly as this was the first time she has been in such a position against the best player in the world. But if Heather is realistic, she will use that to her advantage and say 'I can hang with the best of them'."

So strong mental effort again from Serena. Every match she plays, she's got the pressure as the big favorite. Unbelievable champion.

'This will motivate Watson'

"I definitely think she could be a top 20 player. I think Heather has a similar game to Halep and she is a great, great match winner.

"She backs herself a lot. Heather gets so many balls back into play, her style is about making you play a lot of balls.

"We saw so much positive stuff and I think this will motivate her to work even harder."

'Heather will be devastated'

Williams 6-2 4-6 7-5 Watson

BBC Radio 5 live

Great Britain's Fed Cup captain Judy Murray has been talking to BBC Radio 5 live. She says: "It was an amazing match. Heather was blown away in the first set and Serena was serving big and hitting big off the ground. But Heather dug in, there were a lot of drop shots and short balls and she disrupted Serena's rhythm.

"To be 3-0 up in the third and serving for the match, I think Heather will be devastated to not come away with a victory as she was so, so close. But it's such an encouraging performance as she never gave up."

Watson should gain confidence

"Having gone through this I'd put more money on Serena. Annabel said Heather wouldn't sleep tonight but she won't sleep for another month. This will give Heather a lot of confidence, she can get at least top 20 this year."

Top-10 tennis from Watson

Williams 6-2 4-6 7-5 Watson

Sam Smith

Former British number one on BBC TV

"I think that was one of the great performances by a female British player. She should listen to Serena Williams saying that the top 20 is probably setting her ambition a bit low. To me, that was top-10 tennis."

Tension got to Serena

"Serena was struggling at the end because of the tension. You saw when she won, her knees buckled. She looked absolutely fatigued. If ever there was a time she needed two days off it was this because she did a lot of running. Heather took a lot out of her."

The future's bright for Watson

Williams 6-2 4-6 7-5 Watson

Tim Henman

Former British number one on BBC TV

"In the short term she will be disappointed but when she is able to take a step back and review it and see how her game has improved, and see how she went toe-to-toe with the best player in the world in the biggest tournament, it will give her great confidence.

"She just embraced the whole occasion and she will take so many great points from this match."

Williams 6-2 4-6 7-5 Watson

Tracy Austin

Two-time US Open champion on BBC TV

"Heather Watson did not let this match go, Serena Williams went out and won it despite having so many people cheering for Heather.

"Every match Serena plays throughout the year she is expected to win and she had to play extremely well. This match was like a semi-final and Heather got so many shots back. Serena is right, Heather has a very bright future."

Williams 6-2 4-6 7-5 Watson

Annabel Croft

Former British number one on BBC Radio 5 live

"It was exhausting to watch, gripping stuff. Today you really didn't know who was going to win until the last ball was struck.

"What a great fighting spirit from Heather. She has entertained everyone and should not be ashamed. For Heather to cope with the atmosphere and feed off the crowd was great."

A standing ovation as supporters clamber to their feet and applaud Heather Watson's efforts. Not in Centre Court (although they're doing that too) - but on Heather Heap.

The home fans file out of the exits surrounding the big screen on the side of Court One. The scene is reminiscent of a glum football crowd trudging out of the ground after a home defeat. A scene with more sartorial elegance of course.

"Watson will probably not sleep well tonight, she will think about the chances. Serena's humility really impressed me."

Serena Williams on BBC TV: "I have had some tough losses but that was the toughest match. She played unbelievable and should have won the match. She gave her all and showed what a great player she is.

"She could get beyond the top 20, she is playing really well. She should set her sights higher. She was playing so good there was nothing I could do.

"I will speak to Venus over the weekend. She is in better form than me. She has the advantage over me."

At 3-0 up in the deciding set and two breaks of serve to the good, Watson and the nation dared to dream. Is it any consolation to say that, in defeat, Watson produced the finest match of her career?

Almost silence around Centre as that shot from Serena was called good, as if no-one could believe it was over. But after two hours and 16 minutes it is, and after a wonderful display of courage and skill from the British number one, the old indestructible champ has come through to snatch victory away once again.
