We're just about done on this page for day one of Wimbledon.

There are still three matches still in play at SW19. You'll find the live streams right here.

Until tomorrow...

Watch day one's quirkier moments

Here's some of the day's lighter moments in one tidy package.


Wimbledon 2017: 'Gorgeous' Murray, courageous Kvitova & day one funnies

Game, set and match - Suarez Navarro

Suarez Navarro 1-6 6-1 6-1 Eugenie Bouchard

Despite losing the first set 6-1, Spain's 25th seed Carla Suarez Navarro has come roaring back, taking the next two sets by the same margin to beat Canada's Eugenie Bouchard.

A second first round exit for Bouchard, whose run to the 2014 final seems an age ago.

Day one headlines

Game, set and match - Azarenka

Azarenka 3-6 6-2 6-1 Bellis

Great scrambling from Bellis at 30-15 down on Azarenka's serve to stay in the point but finally the world number one puts it away to set up her first match point.

One and done. The American fires a backhand long and the two-time Australian Open champion wins her first grand slam match since giving birth in December.

Hugely impressive after shipping the first set. Find a bit more form in round two (and beyond) and she could be a contender for the title.

Just as Bellis looked to be roaring back, Azarenka checks her charge, finding another level to take it to deuce and finally break the American.

Just a matter of time now?

Watch Bedene's winning moment

After four and a half hours, the battle between Aljaz Bedene and Ivo Karlovic finally ended. And it was Bedene's moment after a couple of amazing returns.

Murray vs. Bublik: Highlights

Bellis breaks back

Azarenka 3-6 6-2 4-1 Bellis*

People have homes to go to, Catherine.

I'm kidding of course. Hugely impressive response by Bellis to break back in this deciding set, just as Azarenka looked ready to run away with proceedings.

An absolutely belting forehand winner to complete the break too.

*Azarenka 3-6 6-2 4-0 Bellis

Azarenka is raging against the dying of the light on Court One.

She's won four straight games now in the third and deciding set.

The dark is of more threat to her progress tonight than Bellis. They should be able to play to a conclusion, though.

Matt Baker: YEEEEEEESSSSSSSSS!!!! Aljaz Bedene you are legend, won it in 5 sets, 4 hours plus. This. Is. #Wimbledon.

Mark Porteous: What a performance by Bedene. Brilliant. What a match.

Simon Holman: Wow! Aljaz has made his Bedene and slept in it.


Aljaz Bedene

Azarenka 3-6 6-2 2-0 Bellis

Azarenka's class starting to tell here as she breaks Bellis to take the first two games of this deciding set.

Canada's Eugenie Bouchard, a finalist in 2014, has also been taken into a deciding set by Spain's 25th seed Carla Suarez Navarro after both won their respective sets 6-1.

A long night continues.

Eugenie Bouchard

Game, set and match

Karlovic 7-6 (7-5) 6-7 (6-8) 7-6 (9-7) 6-7 (7-9) 6-8 Bedene

Aljaz Bedene, take a bow.

The British number three somehow finds two brilliant returns to snatch the victory after four and a half hours on court.

That was the first break of serve in the entire contest. Remarkable!

Bedene wins four hour epic against Karlovic

Karlovic 7-6 (7-5) 6-7 (6-8) 7-6 (9-7) 6-7 (7-9) 6-7 Bedene*

What a shot from Bedene! A stunning return of serve across the grass.

Match point! Match point! Match point!

Karlovic 7-6 (7-5) 6-7 (6-8) 7-6 (9-7) 6-7 (7-9) 6-7 Bedene*

Breakthrough? Aljaz Bedene is 15-30 up. Two more points and the match is his.

But no. Here comes Ivo Karlovic again, with his massive serve, to recover.

We go to deuce.

On, and on, and on

Chris Bevan

BBC Sport at Wimbledon

It's not just Aljaz Bedene and Ivo Karlovic who look grimly determined to see this match through - you should see the faces of some of the crowd who have been sitting here watching this serving contest for the past four hours.

The girls who tried to start that "come on Ali, come on" chant at about 5pm are long gone - probably somewhere on the District Line. Some people are still cheering aces but, when you have seen more than 60 of them at an average of more than one a game, the novelty surely starts to wear off?

Game and second set - Azarenka

Azarenka 3-6 6-2 Bellis

Chance for Azarenka to take this second set on Bellis' serve at 15-30 but an ugly-looking shot falls far long. And again.

Bellis at, she can't take it as Azarenka works her around the court well to go to deuce.

Advantage Bellis. Then deuce again. Then a sublime cross-court forehand winner from Azarenka to tee up set point.

Brilliant defence from Bellis with a dipping shot to save it. Azarenka comes again though, with a well-placed winner into the corner before Bellis bangs one long to lose the second set.

Live now

FYI - Today at Wimbledon is now starting on BBC Two if you fancy some highlights from day one.

Karlovic 7-6 (7-5) 6-7 (6-8) 7-6 (9-7) 6-7 (7-9) 6-6 Bedene*

Ivo Karlovic holds. Aljaz Bedene holds. Repeat to fade, basically.

The two players are still locked, level on sets and level on games in the decider.

Karlovic has now surpassed 100 unreturned serves. Bedene is still leaping about like a gazelle.

Will it ever end? Who knows.

As an aside, does anyone else think Bedene looks like Tim Henman? Just sayin'.

Azarenka 3-6 5-2 Bellis*

Azarenka's classy serving back to the fore as Bellis can't really get near it and the former world number one is a single game away from levelling this one up.

Victoria Azarenka

Watch Medvedev's winning moment

Watch the moment unseeded Daniil Medvedev of Russia sent fifth seed Stan Wawrinka crashing out in the first round.

Medvedev puts Wawrinka out in first round

Karlovic 7-6 (7-5) 6-7 (6-8) 7-6 (9-7) 6-7 (7-9) 4-5 Bedene

One spectator has fallen asleep on court three (in the stands, not on the grass). We won't embarrass her by screen grabbing it.

She might want to wake up, though. Ivo Karlovic is serving to stay in the match.

*Azarenka 3-6 4-2 Bellis

Bellis also does more than just stop the rot, bringing up two break points against a weary-looking Azarenka.

The Belarus star defends brilliantly though, the highlight a perfectly-placed drop shot as she withstands a barrage to hold.

Confident response from Bellis, though, claiming an easy hold. This one still in the balance.

Karlovic 7-6 (7-5) 6-7 (6-8) 7-6 (9-7) 6-7 (7-9) 4-4 Bedene*

Ivo Karlovic's 42nd ace of this match nearly took the line judge's head off, poor love.

Just like Aljaz Bedene in the game before, the 21st seed holds to love.

We're level again. Go figure.

Four hours later...

Karlovic 7-6 (7-5) 6-7 (6-8) 7-6 (9-7) 6-7 (7-9) 3-4 Bedene

A love service game for Aljaz Bedene gives the British number three a narrow lead in the decider.

We're not sure how long this can go on for tonight with the light fading, but we've just hit the four-hour mark.

*Azarenka 3-6 3-1 Bellis

Two-time Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka is playing her first slam since giving birth in December.

The former world number one was on the back foot against American Catherine Bellis early on, giving up the first set 6-3.

She hit back to reel off three straight games to start the second set but Bellis has just stopped the rot, holding serve to make it 3-1.

Ivo Karlovic powers down his 40th (yes, 40th. Four zero. Fortieth) ace of the match on his way to another hold of serve.

We're about to hit the four hour mark and we're still all square. Two sets all and 2-2 in the decider.

'I knew I had a chance'

Medvedev 6-4 3-6 6-4 6-1 Wawrinka

More from Daniil Medvedev: "I have had a really great grass court season and I knew Stan had some problems at Queen's. I knew I would have a chance if I played well.

"In the third and fourth set especially, I think, I was playing amazing.

"Already at 5-1 I started thinking about what to do after the match and I kissed the grass because it was my first grand slam win, even though people do it when they win Wimbledon."

Here's a taste of some of the entertainment on Centre Court, where Medvedev and Wawrinka certainly gave the fans their money's worth.

Daniil Medvedev moves two sets to one in front in his match against Stan Wawrinka.

'Wimbledon is my favourite'

Medvedev 6-4 3-6 6-4 6-1 Wawrinka

Daniil Medvedev speaking on BBC Two after beating Stan Wawrinka: "Right now I don't even know what to say, I'm just very happy, my first win at a grand slam.

"Wimbledon is my favourite, it was in my juniors and still is.

"I was saying yesterday to my friends that, one year ago, I was 215th in the rankings and if someone told me I'd win, let alone play, on Centre Court, I'd say you were joking."

Karlovic 7-6 (7-5) 6-7 (6-8) 7-6 (9-7) 6-7 (7-9) 1-1 Bedene

We thought we were about to sound the break of serve klaxon for the first time in this match but no, Ivo Karlovic decides to muck it up and Aljaz Bedene holds. Again.

At this match heads for a fifth hour, Jelena Ostepenko's contest with Aliaksandra Sasnovich has been moved to court 18. Probably for the best.

Medvedev didn't go overboard with his exuberance when he won, out of respect for Wawrinka. The result is not really shocking considering the circumstances coming into this match. It was always going to be tough for Wawrinka. It's going to be a very tall order for him to ever get deep into this event again. But the up side for Medvedev is extremely high.

Game and fourth set

Karlovic 7-6 (7-5) 6-7 (6-8) 7-6 (9-7) 6-7 (7-9) Bedene

We're in for a long night here.

Britain's Aljaz Bedene has snatched the fourth set against Ivo Karlovic so we're going to a decider.

Still no break of serve from either player in three hours 40 minutes.

Set four

Game, set and match - Medvedev

Medvedev 6-4 3-6 6-4 6-1 Wawrinka

Just when you thought he was out, Stan pulls himself back in.

Medvedev looks to be cruising to game, set and match but the Swiss seed pulls it back to deuce.

Huge ace from the Russian to get the advantage and set up match point.

And then Wawrinka pumps a return long. He's done it! Daniil Medvedev shocks the fifth seed Stan Wawrinka in four sets on his Wimbledon debut.

Slightly muted celebrations from the 21-year-old, perhaps given the knee injury Wawrinka was struggling with throughout. But what a performance. Terrific composure.

Medvedev puts Wawrinka out in first round

John McEnroe

Three-time Wimbledon singles champion on BBC TV

This is the most beautiful tennis court in the world, the biggest tournament and Wawrinka is a a first ballot hall of famer - yet he doesn't want to be out there. We hope it's mainly because of whatever injury he is suffering from,.

Stan Wawrinka

*Medvedev 6-4 3-6 6-4 5-1 Wawrinka

It's a unique sound, the murmurs and gasps on Centre Court as a big-name player goes to pieces in these glorious surroundings.

Wawrinka has mentally checked out here, making error after error and saving the worst for last as he smashes a relatively easy chance into the net to lose a game to love on his own serve.

Cue those aforementioned murmurs. They shift to huge applause for Medvedev soon enough as he rises, ready to serve for the match.
