this is a player who symbolised success and certainty but now no one knew what serena williams could do, not even her. in the old days serena could overpower everyone. well, against harmony tan, the old days were back in some moments. it would have been easy for her french opponent, ranked 113 in the world, to be intimidated. she wasn't, and she won the first set 7—5. commentator: look at the reaction! remember, serena hadn't played singles for a year. well, that is a return. second set to williams, 6—1. third set, what did she have left, what could she summon? well, the spirit was willing. serena served for the match at 5—4, and whatever her brain was telling her, whatever she remembered, this was now, this was harmony tan... commentator: got it! ..and this was serve broken.
after three hours on court, they are still there, locked in the third set tie—break with harmony tan, as i speak, just completing the most dramatic victory here after dark at wimbledon. many thanks for the result at the last second. it is 25 to 11. i'm not sure how they cope weather—wise at wimbledon today? it was pretty good but further west it was pretty good but further west it was pretty good but further west it was pretty disappointing. very disappointing summer state for scotland, western england and wales, heavy rain and strong winds and it felt quite cool but tomorrow it's a bit better, less windy for all, certainly in the north and west and a mixture of sunshine and showers. this low pressure slowly pulling away and weakening but that has brought strong winds to the north and west end of this pretty active front which has not moved far as affected northern and western areas
for a long time but it is slowly pushing eastward now in the last few hours. heading through tonight, that front will weaken, still some heavy burst in it as it pushes eastwards across scotland and england. one or two showers behind it but otherwise clear spells and the winds will slowly ease down by the end of the night but the temperatures, pretty mild, 12-14 . night but the temperatures, pretty mild, 12—14. tomorrow we start with that front in eastern scotland and england, could be quite damp in the south—east. at lunchtime, it should clear away and then we all have sunshine and showers. some showers could be heavy and thundery in northern and western areas but pretty hit and miss, some areas are seeing the sunshine and some staying dry altogether. top temperatures in the sunshine in the south—east of 23 degrees but a bit warmer further north and west. in the south—east, with those highest temperatures, pretty high pollen levels, low to moderate further north and west punter at wimbledon, could start grey and damp in the morning but as
it clears, it should be bright and you'd be pretty unlucky to catch a shower in the afternoon. it should stay dry. at the centre and showers continue on thursday and friday evening and saturday, high pressure building at the weekend into next week and turning warmer. thanks, stav. and that's bbc news at ten on the 28th ofjune. there's more analysis of the day's main stories especially on nicola sturgeon�*s plans for an independence referendum in scotland next year. kirsty wark is at the scottish parliament ready with newsnight on bbc two which is after the tennis. all of my colleagues on bbc across the nations and regions are standing by for the news where you are so from the ten o'clock team, thank you for watching and good thanks, huw. this is bbc news. the headlines:
