    Boulter 6-7 (1-7) 6-4 4-1 Diyas*

    Hold the charge. Katie Boulter takes a quick medical timeout. Nothing serious, it is just to get a knee graze tended to.

    A bit of antiseptic on cotton wool and she's ready to go...

  2. Post update

    Boulter 6-7 (1-7) 6-4 4-1 Diyas*

    Blimey. A heck of a hold from Katie Boulter. The Brit rattles out a hold to love at the perfect time. Two more of those will do nicely...

  3. Diyas holds

    *Boulter 6-7 (1-7) 6-4 3-1 Diyas

    This is the sort of deadlock you'd expect in an arm wrestle between two bodybuilders. A bit of movement on both sides at deuce, then back into the middle a couple of times more, before Diyas finds a jolt of energy.

  4. Post update

    Boulter 6-7 (1-7) 6-4 3-0 Diyas*

    It will be interesting to see if Boulter can block yesterday out of her mind. She led 4-0 and 5-2 against Yulia Putintseva, holding three match points, before having her pocket picked.

    Boulter has a chance to move 4-0 ahead here against the Kazakh number two, but is forced far out on the left wing and can't return to safety on break point.

    That looks to have given Diyas a leg up the ladder, but the Brit wallops in a volley to take us back to deuce...

    "That's it Katie, come on!" Anne Keothavong shouted during that game. Boulter looks really fired up. She was 5-2 up in the third set yesterday though so she will be keen to put as much distance between herself and Diyas as possible.

  6. Boulter holds

    Boulter 6-7 (1-7) 6-4 3-0 Diyas*

    And breeeathe. Katie Boulter wriggles off the hook with some superb serving which is too hot for Diyas to handle.

    The Brit moves 3-0 ahead in the final set - she's halfway to victory in this straight shootout.

    * I said that yesterday and she lost

  7. Boulter saves break point

    *Boulter 6-7 (1-7) 6-4 2-0 Diyas

    Can Boulter hold? Not sure. Diyas wallops in a forehand winner for a break back point...

    But a brilliant first serve from Boulter eases the pressure. Clutch.Back to deuce...

  8. Boulter breaks

    *Boulter 6-7 (1-7) 6-4 2-0 Diyas

    Chance! Diyas double faults and that brings up a break point... Boulter takes it!!

    Momentum shifted over to the Briton.

  9. Post update

    Boulter 6-7 (1-7) 6-4 1-0 Diyas*

    Boulter is moving confidently, asking questions of Diyas at the baseline and taking her opponent to deuce.

    The Kazakh responds with a forehand winner down the line, but Boulter wipes that out with a cross-court winner of her own.

    Such a high standard at the moment.

  10. Post update

    Boulter 6-7 (1-7) 6-4 1-0 Diyas*

    Come on, Katie - see this one off. It'd be nice for the British fans to be able to celebrate a home win in some late afternoon sun. Perhaps a tipple or two outside one of those nice bars at Stratford.

    That'll do the trick. The British number two cranks her side of the scoreboard into action, fighting back from 15-30 down to hold serve.

    For Boulter it's just about managing what's happening with her back. She's done well to get back on track after the disappointing tie-break in the first.

    Diyas is looking flustered and she is getting fatigued.

    The British crowd enjoyed that break, that’s for sure! We don’t like doing things easily though do we? Another third set, here we come.

  13. Post update

    *Boulter 6-7 (1-7) 6-4 0-0 Diyas

    For the fourth time this weekend (out of four matches) we're going to a third-set decider...

    The Copper Box crowd has certainly got their money's worth.

  14. Game and second set Boulter

    Boulter 6-7 (1-7) 6-4 Diyas

    Choked!

    Not initially, Diyas lands a first serve which rattles Boulter on the first break point. But then she double faults on the second to hand over the set.

    Great Britain are one set away from the World Group stage of the Fed Cup...

  15. Set points Boulter

    Boulter 6-7 (1-7) 5-4 Diyas*

    Now then... Boulter senses a chance at 15-30... a baseline rally ends with Diyas going long.

    Now it is a bona fide chance.. two set points...

  16. Post update

    Boulter 6-7 (1-7) 5-4 Diyas*

    Katie Boulter holds again to get the Copper Box rocking again. The Brit holds her nerve - and her serve - to edge ahead and move within one game of the set...

    Katie Boulter
  17. Post update

    *Boulter 6-7 (1-7) 4-4 Diyas

    How are your nerves? Zarina Diyas's are fine. She completes another hold with a put-away volley. Back over to Katie Boulter...

    Heather Watson and Harriet Dart are no longer sitting on the British team bench. They are down to play the doubles match - which will decide the tie unless Boulter is able to win this set and take it to a decider. Of course, Anne Keothavong could still call up Konta for that match if she feels she needs to.

  19. Post update

    Boulter 6-7 (1-7) 4-3 Diyas*

    The Copper Box crowd needs a pick-me-up - it is tiring watching tennis for umpteen hours, let me tell you - and they get it with a sizzler of a forehand winner from Boulter.

    The adrenaline flows again as Diyas sends a forehand nearer to Row A than the baseline, but the plucky Kazakh is undeterred.

    Every time Boulter edges towards a hold, Diyas pegs her back. But the Brit lands a first at 40-30, Diyas knocking her return the long, and that's another gutsy hold.

  20. Post update

    *Boulter 6-7 (1-7) 3-3 Diyas

    Boulter has been plugged in and is fully charged. The Brit wallops a forehand winner to lead 30-15 and another sniff of the break...

    ... that's until she goes after another one on the Diyas second serve - which has been hammered by Boulter - and the Kazakh leads 40-30.

    A rally ends in the Brit going long again and we're back all square.
