HIGHLIGHTS!

Just woken up with a Bank Holiday weekend hangover?

Don't worry, you catch up with today's big story here. Petra Kvitova, playing her first match since she was stabbed in her left, playing hand during a burglary... WON!

11:25 

BOSERUP 3-6 2-6 KVITOVA Kvitova tears up as she takes the match. It was simple, but it's significant. She's back from a serious, traumatic injury, but she absolutely demolished Boserup, who was no easy opponent.

11:23 

BOSERUP 3-6 2-5 KVITOVA Kvitova's team are wearing some charming t-shirst in the crowd to support her. And, whether it's the slogan or the best part of three decades of preparation, Kvitova is dominating today.

10:55 

BOSERUP 3-6 0-1 KVITOVA Kvitova takes the first game of the second serve too. She's level at 30-30 with the second game ongoing.

10:52 

BOSERUP 3-6 KVITOVA Some praise for Kvitova here, who had her wrist stabbed and some severe nerve damage.

10:50 

BOSERUP KVITOVA Kvitova appears set for an easy time, reaching 40-15 and a point away from the set, but Boserup charges back, a superb, line-touching return forces the game to deuce. Kvitova takes an advantage, then falls back to deuce again. Then, finaly, a serve-and-volley allows her to smash across court to take a one-set advantage.

10:25 

BOSERUP 1-4 KVITOVA Boserup, who had her own problems with injury a few years back (stress fractures in both feet) is taken to deuce by Kvitova, but she holds on this time and gets her first game.

10:19 

BOSERUP 0-3 KVITOVA Kvitova's first ace sees her through to her third successive game.

10:17 

BOSERUP 0-2 KVITOVA Kvitova breaks her opponent. With her fitness under question - that of her wrist and the nerve, she'll want to get through as few games as possible per match.

10:13 

BOSERUP 0-1 KVITOVA Kvitova wins the first game, taking her service game with ease. Away from recovering from her wrist injury, she has got herself in exceptional general fitness. She's hold her own and is 30-15 up in the second.

10:10 

Kvitova, making her way back from a terrible injury to her wrist, is about to start against Julia Boserup.
