I was tricked. It said earlier that Venus/Osta would open CC at 1pm BST.

A bit of a dry spell, and Garbine and Kuzzy managed to finish at least an enteraining first set, won by Garbine (6-3).

Novak won too, so now time to move on to Venus vs Ostapenko.... MOTD for me

(I think that British/Romanian fans have Konta vs Halep as their top match)

Ostapenko wins the toss and chose to receive.
I guess she wants to get used to the Venus power before having to serve... or simply wants to have one game of preparation.

Or maybe she is confident that she can break Venus right from the start.

Very dangerous start for Vee. Osta is very good at going for broke with nothing to lose.

Venus serving well so far and Ostapenko may be a little nervous playing on centre court for the first time. Venus up 3-0.

Venus on top in those first games (3-0).

But unlike Konjuh, it seems that Jelena at least can return decently. So if she limits UE's in the rallies, we may get a match after Set 1 (Venus will take that one for sure).

This could play right into Osta's hands. She loves the come from behind going for broke scenario.

Jelena's father is in the house, sitting next to his wife. First time seeing him at one of her matches. Facially, there is a clear resemblance.
