    As French pair Gael Monfils and Gilles Simon continue into the Wimbledon night, I'm afraid it is time for us to say 'au revoir'. I know, I know. Heartbreak.

    But if you need more tennis to satisfy your insatiable appetites then head over here to watch that late match live.

    Tomorrow is a rest day for us all (boo!) but we will be back for 'Manic Monday' when all the singles matches - men's and women's - will be completed. See you then!

  2. Kvitova's 'bad' challenge

    Wimbledon 2Day

    Nine-time Wimbledon champion Martina Navratilova, speaking on Wimbledon 2Day, can barely believe Petra Kvitova's incorrect challenge at 4-4, 15-30 on the Jankovic serve in the second set.

    "She's in a winning position in the rally. You had better be 100% sure this ball is going to go out. The air just went out of her and Jankovic said 'thank you very much'. It was just a bad, bad decision."

  3. Play under the Centre Court roof

    Monfils 6-3 3-6 6-7 2-1 Simon

    Hang on, what's happening here? The Centre Court roof has been closed, floodlights pinged on. Cleaning staff are busily sweeping the stands, which are slowly seeing people arrive.

    That means one thing. That all-French battle between Gael Monfils and Gilles Simon on Court One is being moved over so it can be played to a conclusion.

    Simon, the 12th seed, is currently leading as they make their way across to resume play at 21:20 BST.

  4. Kvitova struggled with the weather

    Wimbledon 2Day

    Nine-time Wimbledon champion Martina Navratilova on Wimbledon 2Day: "It was like two different matches. Kvitova was a set and 4-2 up and cruising. She struggled with the weather (because of her asthma) and Jankovic defended really well."

  5. Ward's match was winnable

    Wimbledon 2Day

    1987 Wimbledon champion Pat Cash on Wimbledon 2Day: "James Ward is a really nice, tidy player. He did very well but he will look at that match and say it was winnable. These tight matches there's very little in it."

    Another chance here, a chance for a third consecutive break. Tired forehand drop-shot into the net from Seppi, 15-40. No, Murray into the net. Deep approach, Seppi... long! Five games in a row, serving for the match.

  21. Jelena Jankovic answers a random question

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Reflecting on her three-set third round victory over defending champion Petra Kvitova, Jelena Jankovic ended her interview by being asked which three things she would rescue from her house if it was burning down.

    She told BBC Radio 5 live: "I would save myself and the people that are inside the house. That would be my concern.

    "Anything that money can replace, I wouldn't care about. Maybe some photos I'd save, anything with an emotional value. Anything else that I can replace by buying it, I wouldn't care."

    Seppi a man reborn - forehand lashed down the line, break point. Lord alive. Long rally, going longer - 20 shots, net cord from Seppi, Murray readjusting, Seppi backhand wide. Big old point. Horrible tugged backhand, another break point. "USELESS!" shouts Murray, and Seppi capitalises again - driven forehand into the wide open spaces, and it's all going horribly horribly wrong...

    Well, whatever the trainer gave Andreas Seppi, I'll have six of 'em.

    The Italian is back on his feet after extensive treatment and has three break points via a lovely backhand pass and a Murray double fault.

    Where has this twist come from?

    Murray scrapes back two of the break points, but cedes the game with a ballooned second serve.

    Strange times.

  44. Worst thing about being a tennis player? Tickets

    Tennis

    With Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp having badgered compatriot Dustin Brown for Wimbledon tickets, Mark Woodforde has been talking on BBC Sportsworld about being pestered for tickets.

    "I have had a horror of trying to accommodate some different requests," former tennis player Woodforde told BBC Sportsworld.

    "I was just up in the player area cafeteria having a quick bite to eat. A coach of Andy Murray's at the moment was talking about how he accidently threw his tickets in the trash back home so his wife and two children were under a lot of stress this morning trying to forage through their trashcan for their centre court tickets."

    Tim Henman

    Former British number one on BBC TV

    "Murray has been virtually flawless in the first two sets. The only thing he is got to be wary of is a little bit of complacency early in the third set. He wants to keep his intensity high and not give Seppi an opportunity."

  48. Federer wants more fashion freedom

    Federer

    Following his straight-set wins over Sam Groth, Roger Federer has been on BBC TV and he was asked if he thinks the all-white dress code at Wimbledon is too strict:

    "Little bit maybe, but I am for all white.

    "The thing is when I grew up watching Stefan, Boris and Pete they had more colour to it, still 90 per cent white but that is the memory I have and now we're not allowed to have anything.

    "I have been told off in practice for too much colour, I understand it but wish we could have more design in our outfits, but the rules are the rules and I of course will obey the rules."

  49. I didn't feel at my best - Kvitova

    Kvitova

    After losing her third-round match in three sets to Jelena Jankovic, defending champion Petra Kvitova told BBC TV:

    "It wasn't really the best day in my career, but that happens in tennis. I did not really play the second half of the match as I would have wished. I didn't feel at my best, I was nervous before the match but I still should have been able to win. Jelena did very well to win and I send congratulations to her.

    "It hurts because I really love to play here. This is my favourite tournament of the year and I have some really beautiful memories here, but today will not be among them.

    "You need time to get over a result like this. I don't know how long it will take but I will have some time off from tennis, clear my mind and come back fresh again soon."

    Chance for Seppi at 30-30 and coming to the net, but that's a miserable volley. Contrastingly sweet pass down the line, and when Murray snatches at a backhand it's the Italian's first break point of the contest. Heavy serve, snuffed out. Big serve again, job done...

    "You have got to hand it to Pospisil that was an outstanding game to play at this stage of the match.

    "This has been a masterclass of serving in this last set from Pospisil."

    * Seppi 0-2 Murray

    Seppi trading blows from the baseline, and that's not going to end well for him - Murray with the variety and the guile, sealing the game with a ripper of a cross-court pass as Seppi dashes optimistically for the net.

  92. Ward loses serve

    Ward 4-6 6-3 6-2 3-6 6-7 Pospisil*

    Uh oh. Is this trouble for Ward? Yes it is!

    The Briton goes 30-0 down, scrambling back a point. But Pospilis slams down a forehand, moments after a cutting slice, to tee up a pair of break points.

    Thwack! Take that. Ward smashes down a 101 mph second serve to fend off one. However, he is drawn into the net by Pospilis on the next, out of his comfort zone, volleying into the net.

    I wouldn't like to bet on which man is going to crumble here. Neither has looked like breaking the other's serve in this deciding set - the break-point chances read zero. Zilch. Zip.

    Ward is the latest to continue the monopoly of serve, thumping a wonderful cross-court forehand to safety. This is a survival of the fittest - we are just moments away from ticking over the three-hour mark...

  98. Murray v Seppi

    Tim Henman

    Former British number one on BBC TV

    "You can't see one area of Seppi's game that has a big enough weapon to hurt Andy. When they get into these baseline rallies, Murray has got the extra firepower."

  99. Post update

    A quick heads-up for you on this contest on Centre. Murray and Seppi have met each other seven times, with Murray winning the last six. The silver lining for Seppi fans: the Italian's solitary win did come on grass. Albeit nine years ago, when Murray was a lanky lad.

    James Ward

    Jingle, jangle. Those British nerves are being tested. Ward blows two game points as a beautifully-crafted forehand down the line by Pospisil, followed by a sloppy Ward return sets up deuce. However, he wrestles back the game, piling a huge serve down out wide which the Canadian cannot direct to safety.

    Ace down the T. Thumping serve which leaves a simple forehand volley at the net. Ace down the T. Another humdinger of a serve that tees up another volleyed winner.

    If cheap Scandinavian lagers did service games then Vasek Pospisil would be downing a cold pint now. Super stuff.

  113. Post update

    Ward 4-6 6-3 6-2 3-6 3-2 Pospisil*

    James Ward's reaction to clinching this fifth game tells you everything that you need know. The Londoner leaps off the floor, both feet together, stretching his vocal chords at the same time. A wild, wide forehand gave Vasek Pospisil half a sniff at 40-30, before the Briton pulls out a big serve which the Canadian cannot direct back over the net.

    Kvitova 6-3 5-7 4-6 Jankovic

    Petra Kvitova

    The queen is dead.

    Petra Kvitova, all conquering in the first two rounds, has veered off course and out of Wimbledon.

    Those fragile top six inches seem to have cost her again. The mental gremlins have cramped her physical prowess and Jelana Jankovic - 30th in the world - will play Agnieszka Radwanska next.

    Early in this match, the points just funnelled fast and sure into Petra Kvitova's column.

    There seemed a barrel-load of them to play and they were easy to win.

    Now, each one is breathless white-knuckle battle. Kvitova has a glimmer at 15-30, but Jankovic shuts the door.

    *Ward 4-6 6-3 6-2 3-6 2-2 Pospisil

    Chance for Ward? Slight one. The door is slightly ajar at 30-15 to Ward on his opponent's serve, only for a forehand from the back of the court to clip the tape and drop, agonisingly, back onto his side. The Canadian grabs that slice of fortune with both hands, battling back to protect his serve.

  117. Post update

    Ward 4-6 6-3 6-2 3-6 2-1 Pospisil*

    An air of tension has engulfed Court One. No one is really sure which way this set - and therefore the match - will swing. James Ward pounds Pospisil's forehand and backhand in equal measure, forcing errors from the Canadian.

    Virtual silence around Court One as Vasek Pospisil sets up a decider. A serve and volley sets him on the path to the fourth set, a big serve only thwacked into the tape by Ward, who then produces another weak forehand. Set point...a rally ends with Ward pushing another forehand wide. He challenges, but he knows it is not in. That is confirmed by the technology. Decider!

    "I will break you," fictional heavyweight Rocky Balboa was famously told by robotic Russian Ivan Drago in Rocky IV. James Ward must be muttering that to himself as he steps back on to court.

    Another hold for Vasek Pospisil, sealed with an ace, means that he is trying to break for the fourth set...

    Ward 4-6 6-3 6-2 2-4 Pospisil*

    That's more like it. After relinquishing his serve for the first time in two-and-a-half sets on his last ball toss, James Ward rediscovers his holding touch. Just. Vasek Pospilis eyes up a double break as he forces deuce but the Briton digs himself out of a hole by flashing a couple of big serves to the Canadian's weak backhand.

    Oh no! The whole of Court One groans in unison as James Ward goes a break down in the fourth set. I say the whole arena - Pospisil isn't groaning. His screech of 'Come onnnnnn!' is just about audible above the sigh of British disappointment.

    The Canadian earned two break points, seeing the first wiped out as a precise James Ward serve dusts the baseline. But he snaffles the second as a crisp baseline backhand can only be planted into the tape by the Briton.

    Unbelievable! James Ward shows what he has been learning from those training camps with Andy Murray in Miami - how to doggedly return like the world number three. Ward is scrambling on the baseline, somehow getting a Pospisil lob back over the net, then regaining his balance to set up a break point after a 30-shot rally.

    He leaps into the air, urging the Court One crowd to turn up the volume. Calm down James, you've got another point to win. That he does, the Canadian having no answer to his crunching backhand return.

    The six-foot-eleven-inch world number 25 has taken the third set for a 2-1 lead.

    Karlovic beat Tsonga when they met at the same stage at Wimbledon 2009.

  169. Ward wins second set

    Ward 4-6 6-3 Pospisil

    Ward

    Easy! No problems for James Ward as he ties up the second set. The Londoner maintains his solid service game, setting up two set points, with Vasek Pospisil clubbing the first one too long with a double-handed backhand. Court One erupts!

    *Ward 4-6 5-3 Pospisil

    Vasek Pospisil can do no more. The Canadian cruises to another hold, joining the ace party started by James Ward in the previous game.

    Well he can do something more - break the Briton in this game. Otherwise it is one set all.

    Court One

    "Come on James, we're with you," shouts a lady in a pleading voice and that sort of sums up the atmosphere here on Court One. Ward is well placed to take this second set but the crowd know he will need their help in winning this match.

    Ward 4-6 5-2 Pospisil*

    Lovely jubbly. That'll do nicely for James Ward, who holds a pair of aces in his game-winning pack. The Briton's average speed serve of 105mph is slightly slower than his Canadian opponent's 107mph, but he is accurately finding his target. Ward spanks down his sixth ace of the match - and in fact the second set - to keep his advantage.

    Berdych 1-2 Andujar*

    Sixth seed Tomas Berdych, a possible quarter-final opponent for Roger Federer, a possible semi-final opponent for Andy Murray, has fired up the engines on court two.

    The Czech has just dropped a break behind in the opening set against Spain's Pablo Andujar.

    Andujar won their last meeting - albeit on Valencia's hard courts - so it might not be a cakewalk into the last 16.

    Ward 4-6 4-1 Pospisil*

    Groans as James Ward labours to save that break in his back pocket. Pospisil scrambles to deuce, with the aid of a Ward double fault at 40-15, before the Briton reacquaints ball with its old friend net from close range on game point.

    Another deuce passes in favour of the Canadian - break point. Boom! That's saved with a Ward ace and, after another deuce briefly appears, the server crashes down another unstoppable first serve to tie up the hold.

    She is not hanging around so far today either.

    The Czech has been walloping away from the back of the court, pushing and pulling Jelena Jankovic out of position,

    She is a break up.

    Jonathan Marray and Frederik Nielsen have got the band back together.

    The Anglo-Danish partnership that brought home the men's doubles title at Wimbledon in 2012 and then split at the end of that year are playing together again.

    And it looks like some of the old magic is still there. They are a set up on 16th seeded Colombians Juan-Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah.

    *Ward 4-6 3-1 Pospisil

    Mission Im-Pospisil (see below)?! I like that. I can't think of anything better. Well I could, but it would probably be offensive.

    It's far from Mission Im-Pospisil for James Ward as he wears down the Canadian to bring up another break point. A sensational 20-stroke rally, which includes some remarkable defensive shots from the Briton, helps tee up that chance.

    But one shot proves equally as productive for Pospisil, an ace forcing deuce. Then he seals the deal to fend off the double break.

    Kvitova 1-1 Jankovic

    Next up on Centre Court is Petra Kvitova - perhaps the star performer in either draw over the first couple of rounds - against former world number one Jelena Jankovic.

    Defending champion Kvitova has spent only an hour and 34 minutes on court so far, dropping a total of three games in wins over Kiki Bertens and Kurumi Nara.

    Ward 4-6 3-0 Pospisil

    What a strange match. Pospisil was looking confident, Ward a little more unsure. But Pospisil's meltdown has switched the momentum into the Briton's favour. Another comfortable hold - and he's halfway to the second set.

    James Ward

    I don't know if Ward has raised his game at the start of the second set or Pospisil's level has slipped but the Court One crowd are definitely playing their part.

    "Let's go Wardy, let's go," echoes around the arena and the atmosphere is briefly a bit like being at a 1950s football match.

    *Ward 4-6 2-0 Pospisil

    Oooh... Pospisil has the jitters. Two double faults haul Ward back into the game from 30-0 down to 30-30, then goes long with a loose forehand. Break point. Lifeline for Ward! The Canadian balloons another return to gift the game to the Briton. That had bows and wrapping paper on it.

  189. Making Wimbledon tick

    Nick Pearce

    Wimbledon wouldn't be Wimbledon without the famous queue. Katie Wright meets the man who is in charge - chief honorary steward Nick Pearce.

    From the moment people start queuing two days before the start of the Championships, the immaculately-dressed honorary stewards are part of a 24/7 operation - warmly welcoming, advising and directing the hordes descending on SW19.

    They are a team of nearly 200 volunteers and anyone can apply, although there is a waiting list and with a turnover of 10%, it seems once you're in, you don't want to leave. "We're all here because we really want to be here. Some of the stewards have done it for 20 plus years," Nick told me.

    However, the average age is coming down - this year the youngest is 22. The oldest is in his late 70s.

    Nick admits they're a traditional bunch, but the high temperatures have meant he's had to do something he doesn't like doing this week - allow them to discard their jackets…

    Fix up, look sharp. Not sure if Vasek Pospisil is a Dizzee Rascal fan, but he is going bonkers on court one. The Canadian has two break points, snaffling the first one with a forehand volley as he goes on the attack. Oh James.

    BBC Sport at Wimbledon

    That Pospisil break of serve left Court One very quiet but a lone voice yelling "come on Mr Ward" broke the silence and the Brit was given a massive roar of support before starting his next service game and huge cheers followed every time he wins a point.

    "Come on James, just go for it!" shouts another fan. The crowd are getting into this now.
