6:30 pm
bad for the south-east. good too bad for the south—east. good evening. today was one of sunshine and showers but the majority of us saw plenty of sunshine, just a few heavy showers. tomorrow it looks more unsettled across northern and western areas. low pressure will be sitting to the west of us throughout much of this week. it will encroach further towards our shores tomorrow which is why we'll see outbreaks of heavy rain and stronger winds. the showers have been affecting much of scotland and the east and south—east of england. some of them were heavy with some rumbles of thunder, flashes of lightning. they will clear away over the next few hours and then overnight most places will be drier. out west that low pressure will bring wet and windy weather to northern ireland, western scotland and irish sea coasts. temperatures low towards the east. i've got the pressure chart on, just to show you
6:31 pm
the isobars, pretty close together out west. we are looking at windy weather, outbreaks of persistent rain in the irish sea. it could be particularly wet by the end of the day across south—west scotland. maybe some low —— localised flooding in places. a windy day weather you are particularly in the north and the west. —— wherever you are. so, i think tomorrow it looks like we should escape the showers across the wimbledon area. there might be a light one passing through but the emphasis will be on breezy but dry weather with some warmth. as we move through the week most showers in the north and west. staying dry across southern and eastern areas and signs of high pressure building towards the weekend to next week. thanks, stav. and that's bbc news at six on monday the 27th ofjune — you can keep up with all the latest developments on bbc website. from the six team it's goodbye.
6:32 pm
the news continues here on bbc one — as now it's time to join our colleagues across the nations and regions for the news where you are.
6:33 pm
hello, and welcome to sportsday. after a ll after all talk of her injury problems, she's got past allison banner in her straight sets. no problem eitherfor novak banner in her straight sets. no problem either for novak djokovic, the reigning champion on part to win his seventh world title. mil
6:34 pm
the reigning champion on part to win his seventh world title.— his seventh world title. all my childhood _ his seventh world title. all my childhood dreams _ his seventh world title. all my childhood dreams came - his seventh world title. all my childhood dreams came true l his seventh world title. all my . childhood dreams came true here his seventh world title. all my - childhood dreams came true here in this court, and this tournament. so it's an honour and a pleasure to come back to the centre court of wimbledon. i7 17 players doctor british players in the first round, cameron norrie the first to get through. and i'm holly hamilton — also coming up in the programme... and england triump over the world test champions. we bring you the action from the final day of the third test against new zealand. and ahead of their first ever major tournament, northern ireland reveal their squad for the women's euros.
6:35 pm
good evening, welcome along to wimbledon on the opening day of the championships where the sun is now gracing us with its presence. we had rain at the start of the day, interrupted play intermittently throughout the afternoon. but it's all smiles for the british fans at the all england club because emma raducanu is through to the second round. these championships feel like the energy is back to where we are so familiar with it, last time this year playing during the pandemic constrictions meant we didn't even have to put —— full capacity crowds on the opening day. this is still wimbledon with a difference, room or the russian and belarusian ban on players means we haven't got the world number one daniel medvedev in here. but the excitement and upbeat nests, and energy and anticipation is all where you would expect it to
6:36 pm
be on the opening day of the championship. i7 be on the opening day of the championship. 17 british players — that's not happened, all managing to avoid seeds, including emma raducanu. so much uncertainty over how she was going to perform, and boy has she answered them on court — her centre court debut against a top player on grass who has reached the fourth round here before. we were wondering how raducanu would move that first set, its swinging from side to side, there were breaks on both parts of things but raducanu was the one who kept battling in there. slightly edgy start, got that first one and into the second capture movement going. there were some questions about the way she was moving between points, that side injury that she's nursing forced her out of the tournament in nottingham after only seven games. she hasn't played there but she seems to revel in these big moments, a match point
6:37 pm
with the crowd behind her, got that job done. not an easy player to place in the opening round, centre court going wild, let's hear from emma raducanu now into the second round of these championships. i’zfe round of these championships. i've been feeling _ round of these championships. i�*e: been feeling it ever round of these championships. i"2 been feeling it ever since i stepped onto the practice courts here on the first day. ifelt onto the practice courts here on the first day. i felt people behind onto the practice courts here on the first day. ifelt people behind me going, "emma, you got this," and i it was like, "yeah, i got this." a play here is extremely special, and this club is amazing, to walk on these grounds and courts. so i'm just happy to stay here another day. raducanu relieved that the injuries issues that have plagued her since the french open and australian open, blisters on her hands and feet, back issues, knee issues, now this abdominal issue — but she's feeling good at the moment. she will play
6:38 pm
caroline garcia, a big game for emma raducanu next. novak djokovic, the defending champion here — this could be his last grand slam until the french open next year because as things stand, he can't play at the us open or australian open. he wants to win this wimbledon because he wants to close the gap on the rough's 22 grand slams. this would be 21 grand slams for djokovic if he could do it. it looked like it would be straightforward for djokovic but he had some difficulties early on against the south korean, one of a handful of asian players in the top 100 in the world, and he dropped the second set, as well, novak djokovic, but so good at finding his movement. he loves the grass of centre court. he loves the grass of centre court. he hasn't lost on that court since 2017 - he hasn't lost on that court since 2017 — and novak djokovic made sure there were no shocks for him in the
6:39 pm
opening round, safely through. potentially andy murray awaits in the quarterfinals. plenty of loud cheers around these grounds, and there were when djokovic one earlier today. ididn't i didn't have any lead up tournaments, preparation tournaments or matches prior to wimbledon, so you'll always feel a little bit probably less comfortable than you would like to at the beginning. particularly if you're playing against somebody as talented as quan, who stays close to the line and hits very clean from forehand and backhand side. it was really difficult to go through him. djokovic easing himself into this the lack of these championships. raducanu, gretzky, whatever you want to call it — andy murray has stepped out onto centre court, let's bring you some life pictures as he is warming up and his match record on
6:40 pm
the screen, a two—time champion here, of course, to time olympic gold medallist. he knows how to win at wimbledon, but since that hip resurfacing surgery it's been difficult for him to stay. he was looking so good at the beginning of this year, murray, getting to the final at stuttgart then found himself at the abdominal issue again against berrettini, then losing that final and hasn't picked up a racket since then. it's looking he'll play againstjames since then. it's looking he'll play against james duckworth of australia, we will see how he gets on. that will get on shortly. let's take you to court one, so much life ten is happening at the moment. one of the great hopes of tennis at the moment, carlos alcaraz is playing. this is a five set epic and it is
6:41 pm
match point for carlos alcaraz. his game is so well suited, but he's dynamic and superfast. he'll be a world number one no doubt about that. is it too soon for wimbledon now? probably. he's made the third round here, alcaraz beat nuttall and djokovic, he knows he's one that everyone's watching the moment. he's trying to get himself over the ground and into round two — and he hasn't quite done it, so you'll have a second match point. we will bring you those results when we get it. let's head back to these british players then. 17 playing across the opening round, some have been delayed now many because need i say more, it's an absolute slugfest of a
6:42 pm
match. ryan peniston and katie swan will play tomorrow. but one man who is over the line is cameron norrie, the british number one hoping to reach the second round, second week of the grand slam in his career. he's into round two — michael redford now reports. when there's a chance of seeing a british player and action in wimbledon, it's important to get your seat early — as long as you keep yourself entertained. when cameron norrie arrived on the court, no distractions were needed. you not only provided entertainment but he prorated it quickly. just 2a minutes passed when the first that was one to 6— love. but if the first that was straightforward, the second was anything but. pablo and harr threatened to take control. before the weather beat him to it. when the rain falls, it's sometimes easier to block it all out. when play resumed, norey fought back. in an early break in the third put him on the edge of
6:43 pm
victory. don't expect movement. the rain would intervene once more. there be no response from anduhar when they returned once again. norey into round two. it when they returned once again. norey into round two-— into round two. it wasn't easy, especially _ into round two. it wasn't easy, especially playing _ into round two. it wasn't easy, especially playing such - into round two. it wasn't easy, especially playing such a - into round two. it wasn't easy, especially playing such a greatj especially playing such a great first set and the delay, then obviously again a delay again. so a lot of waiting around but ijust had to stay as focused as i could. it wasn't the prettiest of performances but i managed to get it done in straight sets, and i'll take that and move on.— straight sets, and i'll take that and move on. �* .,, , , ., and move on. and there was plenty of british sunport — and move on. and there was plenty of british support on _ and move on. and there was plenty of british support on their— and move on. and there was plenty of british support on their phones - and move on. and there was plenty of british support on their phones and i british support on their phones and the other court, too. they nearly saw a huge shock on court 17. billy mia xhaka ranked outside the 200 took the first set against caroline garcia. —— millie miyazaki. miyazaki lost the decider on a tie—break. garcia into round two. it's bye—bye too forjodie burrage, who also lost
6:44 pm
in the first round beaten in straight sets by the ukrainian. they waved to the crowd as she departed court 18, a wimbledon tournament overfor court 18, a wimbledon tournament over for another year. michael redford, bbc news. she played really well on the court behind us, court 18 against tsurenko, but wasn't good enough in the end to beat her. the big talking point from that match, let's show you these pictures — it wasjodie burrage when a young ball boy looked to be unwell. jodie burrage a total class act, going up to the ball boy with a packet of suites to make sure he was happy. pick the loudest cheer of that match over on court 18, that's jodie burrage of that match over on court 18, that'sjodie burrage going out of these championships on a midst that i can make stay for british players.
6:45 pm
i'm pleased to say with that in mind, joining me today on sportsday is michael board, the head of performance of the lawn tennis association. there's so much to dig into here, i was mentioning the 17 british players playing across his first round — what do you put the success down to? the first round - what do you put the success down to? the performance strate: success down to? the performance strategy has _ success down to? the performance strategy has been _ success down to? the performance strategy has been in _ success down to? the performance strategy has been in place - success down to? the performance strategy has been in place for - success down to? the performance strategy has been in place for a - strategy has been in place for a while now, there's been great people at the lta and across british tennis to support these players. i think it's very much about having a performance strategy which is about supporting these players over an extended period of time. a really good environment for them to train, got the right level of competition and performance support around them, just allow them to express their potential and talent that they have. one person who has expressed their potential and talent in the nth degree is emma raducanu. how impressed root you with her and her response after all the speculation about the injuries and the focus — what did you make of her and around

6:47 pm
targeting in terms of success goes back to put markers down? you didn't say raducanu must win the us open, as nice as that would be, but how dreaming do make a bigger you dreaming do make a bigger you dreaming at the lta? we dreaming do make a bigger you dreaming at the lta?— dreaming do make a bigger you dreaming at the lta? we are helping them as much _ dreaming at the lta? we are helping them as much as _ dreaming at the lta? we are helping them as much as they _ dreaming at the lta? we are helping them as much as they can _ dreaming at the lta? we are helping them as much as they can come up i dreaming at the lta? we are helping l them as much as they can come up we don't set specific targets for those players like harriet dart, but we set ourselves a target to be respected for and development support we offer to our best players. so that's how we look at it, we want to support as many players to do the best they can into good and to progress till the end. so the more talent we see coming through, we will continue to support them. ,., . through, we will continue to support them. . ., , ., them. there so much more but at the moment, michael, _ them. there so much more but at the moment, michael, thank— them. there so much more but at the moment, michael, thank you - them. there so much more but at the moment, michael, thank you for - moment, michael, thank you for joining us. some of the british players we're looking forward to seeing tomorrow, we talked about draper. carlos alcaraz has one, he's
6:48 pm
threw to the second round, one of the biggest talks of the day, hubert hurkacz touch is out. i'll have more for you later, but now back to the bbc sport centre. holly? wimbledon colours no less there, don't think we didn't notice that. unlike wimbledon, no closed roof at headingley — so rain did cause a delay for england's cricketers, but couldn't stop an emphatic victory on the final day of the third test against new zealand — and a stunning 3—0 series win. ben croucher has the details. sealed with a six — well, with this modern england, it was only ever going to end one way, wasn't a? there was a time this morning well it felt like the only thing that could derail this english freight train this summer was the english summer itself. not quite the starting they had in mind. all the pope didn't last the first over — the problem for new zealand was that
6:49 pm
broughtjohnny bairstow to the crease. few in balder modern england more than him —— few and body. no times for nerves or to waste, bairstow set out the chase at pace. the fastest 50 by an englishman and england. at the other end, england's joe root. more measured but no less in fatic fashion. the yorkshire men combined into leads to see england home. no team in test history has chased more than 252 of win three tests in a row — until now. ben stokes's side could be onto something succulent when i took over thisjob, it was more something succulent when i took over this job, it was more than thisjob, it was more than results for me. i this job, it was more than results for me. . ., . ., for me. i wanted to change the mindset towards _ for me. i wanted to change the mindset towards test - for me. i wanted to change the mindset towards test match i for me. i wanted to change the - mindset towards test match cricket, and the results would look after themselves. if you look back at these games and we were on the wrong side of the results, i still would've walked away from this series being pleased with the way we've operated. the series being pleased with the way we've operated.— we've operated. the results have

6:51 pm
i must say south africa just a better resurgence there for the visitors. ~ , ,., , ., visitors. absolutely, england winnin: visitors. absolutely, england winning the _ visitors. absolutely, england winning the toss _ visitors. absolutely, england winning the toss looked - visitors. absolutely, england winning the toss looked like | visitors. absolutely, england| winning the toss looked like a visitors. absolutely, england - winning the toss looked like a good decision as well, 89—5 was the south africa score. then came the big partnerships that really change things. we saw this a number of times during the women's world cup, she's a class all around her and she really dug in and played so, so well to score 150. that's what really caused england the pressure and the problems. they had to fight hard but eventually got that wicket to shift momentum back their way. it's been a really interesting day, fluctuating one way than the other probably as the players and headed off the field a minute or so ago, it's almost even at the close of play. it certainly england will be quite relieved they didn't have the awkward half an hour at the back end of the day to try and negotiate with the bat. they can come in fresh tomorrow with 284. it's interesting this match coming off the back of those comments from
6:52 pm
the icc chairman who said that test matches are not part of the landscape moving forward. it's interesting because this england side don't seem to agree with that succulent not at all, his comments have been met with quite firm responses. heather not used one word when i asked about it — she said it was sad because tests cricket is seen as the pinnacle of cricket so often and if there is a sense that some of these players won't get the opportunity to play very often, they'll inevitably feel it's being viewed as a lesser form of the game. so encland viewed as a lesser form of the game. so england are _ viewed as a lesser form of the game. so england are desperate _ viewed as a lesser form of the game. so england are desperate to - viewed as a lesser form of the game. so england are desperate to play - viewed as a lesser form of the game. so england are desperate to play as i so england are desperate to play as much as possible, they play reasonably often, at least more than other countries in south africa. this is the first match since 2014, so for them, nine players were handed their test caps today. so it is a rare occasion for them. you can really see the pride for these players and playing red ball cricket, getting the chance to play in a test match. in test match cricket is the ultimate test. we see that with the ball and bat today, it's been a really entertaining day
6:53 pm
so far and really entertaining test match. from what we've seen today, women's test match cricket is alive and well and certainly is an incredibly enjoyable format to watch. incredibly en'oyable format to watch. . , ., . ., , watch. the fans are certainly en'o in: watch. the fans are certainly enjoying it — watch. the fans are certainly enjoying it from _ watch. the fans are certainly enjoying it from what - watch. the fans are certainly enjoying it from what i - watch. the fans are certainly enjoying it from what i can i watch. the fans are certainly i enjoying it from what i can see. thank you. with just over a week to go before the start of the women's euros, today was the turn of northern ireland to reveal their squad for the start of the tournament in what will be a first major competition for the senior women's side. our correspondentjane dougall is in belfast for the announcement. kenny shiels has opted largely for the squad that has led them into this tournament. our correspondentjane dougall is in belfast for the announcement. you'll make sometimes dreams do come true! sheer delight as northern ireland women defied the odds to qualify for a major tournament for the first time. most of the squad part—time players, and the lowest ranked country to ever get to a

6:56 pm
for the tour de france. cavendish equalled the record for the most stage win last year. the manx missile has been named as a reserve rider. and in ice hockey, the colorado avalanche have won the stanley cup for the first time since 2001. they beat the tampa bay lightening 4—2 overall in their best of seven series. let's head back to wimbledon, as chetan brings us more from day one at the all england club. a bit of time to catch our breath, so much excitement on day one is there so often is with so much tennis going on to keep us busy. just in terms of brit watch, core 18 behind me — british playerjay clarke is about to step out against chris harrison. i mention ct. 18 because emma raducanu played her first and second round matches here behind us. it was barely full,
6:57 pm
people giving it a passing glance of what was happening — little did we know the incredible story that would unfold. she threw to the second round —— she's through. on the centre court now, one of the british titans, let's show you live pictures because andy murray is playing james duckworth of australia. murray has just been broken, so duckworth leading 2—1 now early on in this first set. we were unsure about marie's fitness going into these championships with the side injury that he suffered in the abdominal issue in that final in stuttgart. since that injury, it's been one injury challenge after another. it's never really easy but the former british number one knows how to win on grass. there's a potential of a
6:58 pm
quarterfinal against novak djokovic but that feels some way away at the moment. duckworth is a good player on grass, but marie will need all his battling qualities of fees to make it through round two. tomorrow the big names keep coming. tomorrow we will see her women's doubles partner at eastbourne, serena williams, take to the court. we will also see ref and a doll play, so many of the british players as well, some of whom were held over from today because of the rain. we will hope for better weather but from me and the team here, good night. good evening. some rather showery weather prospects for the rest of this week across the uk. but, interspersing the showers, there will be some long spells of sunshine — and at this time of year, the sun has some strength to it, and that will produce some relative warmth but we won't see a return of the heatwave conditions of recent weeks. this is the low pressure that's
6:59 pm
driving our weather this monday night into tuesday, pushing rain into western scotland, northern ireland into the small hours of tuesday. some drizzly rain by the end of the night for northern england. central and eastern areas clearer, cooler, as well, rural lows maybe 6—7 celsius. towards the west where it's wetter and windier, lows of 12—13 celsius. through tuesday, we'll continue with some strong winds particularly to the west of the uk, but quite blustery across the board. winds gusting up to 40 mph adjacent to the irish sea coasts. brighter come the afternoon for northern ireland, but with a risk of thunderstorms, the persistent rain sits to the west of the uk. sunniest and warmest in the east.
7:00 pm
hello, i'm ros atkins with outside source. we will start in ukraine. russia has launched a missile strike on a shopping centre in central ukraine with more than 1,000 people inside. officials say at least ten people are dead and 40 injured. eyewitnesses describe what it was like when the centre was hit. the centre was just destroyed. i just am out of words. i did not expect that something like this could happen in my town. the attack comes as g7 leaders promise to support ukraine against russia's invasion for as long as it takes. and the nato military alliance has
