Over and out

So Serena Williams progressed, Andy Murray went through, the rain fell and the roof came on. Classic Wimbledon.

The live text is closing for business for the day, but don't forget you can continue to watch Centre Court action here.

BBC Radio 5 live's 6-love-6 is coming up at 19:00 BST, while Today at Wimbledon rocks up on BBC Two at 20:30 BST.

Kuznetsova beats Wozniacki

Svetlana Kuznetsova beats Caroline Wozniacki in straight sets, here is the winning moment.

Centre Court still alive

Play's not done on Centre Court. Oh no no no.

The organisers have fiddled around with the schedule and American Coco Vandeweghe will take on Kateryna Bondarenko of Ukraine.

They've moved over from court 17, which is a wash out. 

Great winner from Kuznetsova

Kuznetsova great winner

Svetlana Kuznetsova, speaking to BBC Two: "It was my first grass win this year. It was a tough first round. I think I did great and I am really happy with my performance.

"Caroline stepped up towards the end, I got a little tense and was rushing it. At 5-4 I said to myself I had to play slow. 

"It is my first experience to play with the rood closed and it was really special."

All credit to Kuznetsova, who was able to elevate her game a notch or two at the end of each set.

The only place where there is any action right now at Wimbledon is Centre Court where the roof is doing a fine job of keeping the show going.

Game, set and match

Wozniacki 5-7 4-6 Kuznetsova

That's it. It's all over on Centre Court.

Wozniacki's forehand goes well past the baseline and Svetlana Kuznetsova raises her hands in celebration.

The thirteenth seed will now face British wildcard Tara Moore in the second round.

Play abandoned on outside courts


The rain radar brings bad news.

A dirty great splodge of rain is not shifting from SW19 and so play has been cancelled on all the outside courts.

Cue a rush of brollies to the exits.

Wozniacki 5-7 4-5 Kuznetsova

As Lenny Kravitz once sang: It ain't over till it's over.

Caroline Wozniacki has three break points and snatches a game away from Svetlana Kuznetsova, after the Russian overcooks a backhand past the baseline.

And then Wozniacki holds with ease. Kuznetsova to serve for the match.

A big round of applause. I think these fans would like a longer match. It's been hotly contested - two marquee players and a tough opening round for Wozniacki. 

Wozniacki 5-7 2-5 Kuznetsova

Svetlana Kuznetsova is on the home straight now - 5-1 up in the second and eyeing a vital break point against Caroline Wozniacki. 

How long can the Danish woman hold it off for?

She staves off the threat for now by holding serve.

Wozniacki 5-7 1-4 Kuznetsova

A warm applause around Centre Court for Caroline Wozniacki as she gets a game on the board for the first time in this set.

The former world number one has got to the fourth round for the last two years, but she's got a fight on her hands to get over the first hurdle this year. 

What's the Wimbledon crowd?

Frank Keogh

BBC Sport

The capacity in the Wimbledon grounds is 39,000 but Monday's official attendance was 40,403 - a decrease of 2,872 on last year.This is because the official attendance figure includes tickets reused after spectators have left for the day.

It's looking a little sparse now on Centre Court, despite the roof being brought over to protect it from the nasty weather.

Still raining

The rain has eased at Wimbledon but the covers remain on the outside courts and there are still plenty of brollies in evidence.

Wozniacki wins great rally

Kuznetsova may have won the first set, but Wozniacki got there better of her during this exciting rally.

Kuznetsova in control

Wozniacki 5-7 0-3 Kuznetsova

Thirteenth seed Svetlana Kuznetsova is taking control.

The Russian nabbed the first set with a single break and she's added another two in the second, to take a 3-0 lead.

She's now back on serve against Caroline Wozniacki, who needs a rescue plan right now.

Kuznetsova really took it up a notch in that last game. She was focused and aggressive.

Liam Broady is reflecting on his defeat against Andy Murray.

"Even if you think I am just going to focus on hitting the ball, it is still Andy Murray on Centre Court. I think I got better as the match went on," he says.

"Andy said afterwards, 'Good fight well played'. He is a great guy. He asked me as I went off whether I enjoyed it and I said of course I did, I was playing Andy Murray on Centre Court. I didn't enjoy the losing bit."

Time for tea

Behind the scenes

Clare Balding

While it is raining, Clare Balding has taken BBC Sport's Facebook friends behind the scenes of Wimbledon. Look out for her sneaking up on Sam Smith very stealthily.

Like Roger Cook stalking a dodgy car dealer. Lovely stuff.

Watson v Beck cancelled

Heather Watson
Rex Features

Heather Watson sported a dress that looked like it was inspired by a welly boot to the pre-Wimbledon players' party this year.

It probably would have been the most suitable bit of kit in this teeming rain.

The British number two's match against Annika Beck has been called off for the day.

Timea Bacsinszky  and Sloane Stephens are among the other players stood down until Wednesday.

Another day for Watson

Wimbledon organisers inform us several matches will not now take place today after rain stopped play, including Britain's Heather Watson against German Annika Beck.

They were the fourth match due on Court Two.

Matches off

Wozniacki 4-3 Kuznetsova*

It is nip and tuck in the first set on Centre Court in the one match that is still in play.

Caroline Wozniacki lead 4-3 against Svetlana Kuznetsova and we are on serve.

Rain at Wimbledon

An announcement comes over the tannoy system across the show courts:

"Rain is likely to continue for another hour, with further showers expected later."

Everyone tuts. How very British.

It's looking pretty empty out on Henman Hill now, although a few hardy fans have camped out under umbrellas to watch Kuznetsova v Wozniacki.

Premier tour 🎾✔️ mais le job n'est pas fini 😅😁 #Wimbledon #TsongaTeam

Premier tour 🎾✔️ mais le job n'est pas fini 😅😁 #Wimbledon #TsongaTeam

It looks like Jo Wilfried Tsonga had a little bit of car trouble on his way back to base after his win today.

EIther that or he is training Rocky style for the fortnight.

Anyone in SW19 got some chickens for the Frenchman to chase?

Kyrgios v Brown

Russell Fuller

BBC tennis correspondent at Wimbledon

I think Nick Kyrgios is a different prospect in 2016. He got a lot of negative headlines last year. I think this year, he has nothing to reproach himself for. I think he is very good for the sport and I think there is a very good chance he will play Andy Murray in the fourth round on Monday.

Kuznetsova breaks

Wozniacki 1-2 Kuznetsova

An early break for 13th seed Svetlana Kuznetsova puts Caroline Wozniacki on the back foot.

Kuznetsova is an old-timer here - she's playing in her 13th championship at the age of 31.

Rhys Owen-Williams Am I the only one fascinated by them putting the court cover away?   

It's a work of art.

'Good experience for Broady'

Broady 2-6 3-6 4-6 Murray

Andy Murray on BBC Two: "I thought I did some good stuff offensively. Maybe defensively I could have done a little better but first round matches are always a little tricky. 

"At the start of the match we are both just trying to win. Liam played better as the match went on. He fought right through to the end and played some good stuff. It was a good experience for him.

"It was definitely different [with the crowd supporting both players]. The crowd is always very fair here. They got behind both players. Liam got good support and when he left the court he got a nice ovation too."

Murray defeats Broady

The winning moment, in case you missed it.

Play suspended on court one

Here we go, classic Wimbledon rain a-falling.

Johanna Konta's match with Monica Puig has been suspended on court one, with the British number one leading 6-1 2-1.

The forecast did suggest the weather would take a turn for the worse around this time. 

Everyone do a sun dance, please.

Centre Court roof on

The Centre Court coverers are getting their first run out for the fortnight.

With the dark skies above ready to drop their payload on the All England Club, it has been decided to put the lid on Centre Court before it is too late.

We are heading indoors for the final match of the day on Centre Court which is Svetlana Kuznetsova against Caroline Wozniacki.

Wildcard Moore is through

Moore 6-3 6-2 Van Uytvanck

Congratulation Tara Moore - the first British woman to make it through to the second round this year.

The 23-year-old, who was born in Hong Kong, beat Belgium's Alison Van Uytvanck 6-3 6-2.

Moore is ranked 100 places below today's opponent and she has now claimed her first ever win in a Grand Slam match, Bravo!

Andy Murray is the big brother. All the players look up to him and try and get any tips they can from him. I thought Murray did enough, he played better than Djokovic yesterday but like in that game you have to hand it to the opponent for stepping it up.

There is more coverage on BBC Radio 5 live right here or by clicking the tab at the top of this page.

Tim Henman

Former British number one on BBC TV

I don't think we should forget how clinical Murray was in this performance. He'll be delighted to be in the second round.
