An unbelievable turnaround by Kerber there, who absolutely decimated Beck in the second set, despite an hour long first set. Still, I think we'll be seeing more of Beck in the future if the first set is anything to go by.

Kerber 6-4 6-0 Beck. Game Set Match to Kerber with a bagel to finish it off. She's now made it into the final eight of all Grand Slams
Kerber 6-4 5-0 Match point. Kerber has really hit her stride, now, but Beck is determined not to make it easy for her, smashing a ball into the right service court as Kerber is out on the left of the baseline.

Kerber 6-4 5-0 Beck. It just keeps going. Hard to imagine Beck coming back from this, now, though it is Kerber's serve so who knows...

Kerber 6-4 4-0 Beck. She's making mincemeat of her! Where has this determination come from? Kerber seals another game with an ace.

Kerber 6-4 3-0 Beck. The first set might have taken over an hour, but Kerber looks to be wrapping things up pretty quickly now...

Kerber 6-4 2-0 Beck. Kerber is covering the court really well in these rallies, though it's an unforced error from Beck that allows Kerber to hold her serve. Her confidence might be growing now, she certainly looked like she needed a boost, earlier in the match.
Kerber 6-4 1-0 Beck. Going into Kerber's next serve now and we are double faults galore.

Kerber 6-4 Beck. A minor technical blip means I've literally no idea how that set was won, but it was - by Kerber, who, against all the odds (as per this match, at least) has held her serve. That's only the second time this has happened in the ten games of that set.

Kerber 5-4 Beck. Isn't holding serve supposed to be the easy bit? We've had over 19 break points in this match, so far and Kerber has broken another of Beck's serves. I wonder what will happen next... Well, she's serving for the set, now.

Kerber 4-4 Beck. Nope. No one is going to hold their serve. Kerber looks stressed and a little done-in, to be honest. If she thought this was a done deal, Beck is very much dispelling that myth. Kerber would do well to remember that she's been seen off on a number of occasions here with a powerful dropshot from Beck - she needs to cover the net better.

Kerber 4-3 Beck. Lovely play by Beck, there. Another cracking dropshot that Kerber can't clear the net, in response to, and a blistering shot straight down the line, but somehow Kerber takes it. Will anyone hold their serve in this match?

Kerber 3-3 Beck. Kerber is not happy. Beck breaks right back (thanks in part to a dodgy call, umpire?), pounding a dropshot over the net.
Little altercation there with the umpire. I'm sure it'll be of little comfort to Kerber, but I agree, it was out. Got a view on that? You can tweet me if you want at @inspireajen

Kerber 3-2 Beck. What do you do when someone breaks your serve? Break their's right back! Though Kerber fails to capitalise on 3 break points allowing Beck to catch up on her early lead, she does it on the fourth. It'll be important for her psychologically that she pulled it off - she already looks pretty tense.

Kerber 2-2 Beck. Both have played some clever shots to catch the other offguard, but Back struggles to convert her break points, she finally manages it on the fifth and Kerber looks miffed.
