the opener, the second was a serving masterclass is. not appoint conceded in the entire set, flawless. and in the third, the resistance was broken. the number one seed taking it 6-1, broken. the number one seed taking it 6—1, gliding into the third round. i have almost lost in the first round and ended up winning the tournament, or i have a one in straight sets like last year. i clearly enjoyed the past where it comes easier, i am happy, clearly enjoyed the past where it comes easier, iam happy, the clearly enjoyed the past where it comes easier, i am happy, the team is happy and we are looking forward to the third round. in the women's draw, the seeds continued to. it caroline wozniacki was the latest to 90, caroline wozniacki was the latest to go, level at one set all and four matchpoint. they all came and went. but after the world number two got it to 5-5, but after the world number two got it to 5—5, the russian regrouped superbly. this time the opportunity would not pass her by. five of the top eight women's seeds out before
the third round. it was 5-5, i started thinking about those matchpoint and my serve. but i thought to myself, you're not going to lose this match because you have so to lose this match because you have so many matchpoint and i told to myself that and i forgot it and start over. another shock was alexandra dulgheru, who had the best of the opening set with venus williams, the romanian taking it 6-4. but williams, the romanian taking it 6—4. but from that moment on, the five—time champion was a different player, demolishing her. never in doubt. much like her sister, serena williams raced into the third round after despatching the qualifier in just over an hour. the seven time champion looking better with every match. the two times wimbledon champion rafa nadal will be among those back in action on thursday. he plays mikhail kukushkin from kazakhstan in the first match

that'll be followed by brazil taking on belgium. on saturday, it's sweden against england. the winner of that, plays the winner of russia against croatia. from samara, john bennett reports. russian football legends don't come much bigger than this man, but against all the odds, the 2018 russian team are making themselves into russian hero ‘s. he would be proud of the current goalkeeper, the hero of that penalty shootout win against spain and. croatia will start as the favourites in the quarter—final, eight goals in their four matches, the goalkeeper may need to be the hero again. brazil booked their place in the quarter—finals with a win rate here ina samara quarter—finals with a win rate here in a samara and their current number ten is getting better and better with every game. a goal and an assist against mexico and another 90 minutes of match fitness and is
built. but belgium have a magical number ten of their own. can eden hazard find the gaps in a brazil defence that hasn't conceded for 310 minutes? is 20 years since france w011 minutes? is 20 years since france won the world cup, but now the fans are dreaming at the class of jake kean can emulate the heroes of 1998. previous plays would and meyer the uruguay defence, just one goal conceded. ‘s centre—back is handing out defensive masterclasses and now he will be up against the player he knows very well, is atletico madrid teammate antoine griezmann. —— is. diego maradona will always be associated with england and that quarter—final in 1986, the hand of god followed by a goal from the golds at. this time around, england's opponents don't have an individual magician, and a yellow wall at the back, keeping clean
sheets of three of their four matches. so can harry cambridge through? he has scored six goals at this world cup, the same amount that gary lineker scored in 1986. so with the quarter—finals decided — and 56 of the 64 games now played, what does the man in charge of the tournament think of what he's seen so far — and of var, the video assitant referee system which has been at the centre of some controversial decsions. the fifa president gianni infantino has been speaking to the bbc‘s piers edwards. so far, i think a great world cup, incredible games, a lot of passion, a lot of people celebrating. the matches are crazy. let's hope it continues like that. some good actions as well with regard to var,
as you mentioned, i think it is working pretty well. we had very positive outcomes so far. you know, we have to continue to keep a level higher. var is one of the recent productions, the other is the fair play rulings, japan playing out, is that something fifa might look at ain? that something fifa might look at again? you don't want to see that in again? you don't want to see that in a world cup at. —— match. again? you don't want to see that in a world cup at. -- match. as the rules are, you always learn and half to debrief after and see what you can do better, so, you know? we count on fair play always, for everyone. one other football line — could cristiano ronaldo be on his way from real madrid to juventus? the european champions are said to be considering an offer of around $116 million from the italian side for the 33—year—old. ronaldo — a five times ballon d'or winner who's a51 goals make him real‘s all time record scorer — said after the champions league final that he'd make a decision about his future soon. the tour de france champion

to this point and this point is finally here, so obviously extremely relieved and it is a huge weight off my shoulders going into this year ‘s tour to france. —— tour de france. bangladesh were bowled out for a dismal 43 on the opening day of the first test against the west indies in antigua, their lowest ever test score. liton das was the only player to make double figures, with 25. kemar roach was the pick of the west indies bowlers, becoming only the third cricketer ever to take five wickets in a span of 12 balls. in reply kraigg brathwaite is unbeaten on 88, as the west indies closed play 201 for 2. west indies well and truly on top. you can get all the latest sports news at our website — that's bbc.com/sport. but from me chetan pathak and the rest of the sport today team, goodbye.

about by this band of cloud. the odd spot of drizzle. the noticeable change is a dip in temperature. for many of us, temperatures are higher than wednesday morning. a bit more comfortable for sleeping, i'm sure. this weather system is not bringing much weather. just a line of cloud. most of the rain is further north. but it is bringing the fresher atlantic air in. you can see the delineation between the hot air and that is the atlantic influence. that is why temperatures in scotland and northern ireland could be 10 degrees lower than those yesterday. there should not be as much weather on that system. more cloud as it goes gradually east through the day. things will brighten up. cloud is building for the south to be a few showers in the pennines. more likely in the southern half of the uk, parts of wales in southern and central england. they could well be heavier than yesterday. thunder, given the heat building. it looks like the heat will be higher on the temperatures by a degree or two for the bulk of england and wales to be a contrast after the 29,
only 18 or 19 during the day ahead. there will be a refreshing sea breeze around the coast. thursday and friday. the change in the wind on thursday today should see the low cloud shift away from the east coast more quickly. early—morning mist will burn away. then it's a lovely day. the odd shower in the east. temperatures are gradually starting to recover across scotland and northern ireland as we lose the atlantic influence, building the heat by the day and therefore by night. it will be uncomfortably hot. many of us once again with temperatures in central and southern areas getting towards 30 degrees. high pressure ensures lots of dry weather through the weekend. the fly in the ointment is more cloud at times, producing patchy rain on these weak weather fronts towards the north and west. temperatures recovering and hot further south. refreshing sea breezes around the coast. still strong sunshine. looks as though fine weather will last into the early part of next week. welcome to bbc news, broadcasting to viewers in north america and around the globe. my name is mike embley. our top stories:
