Conditions seem very slow. Plenty of extended rallies, both players able to stay in rallies when defending deep. Holding serve has been difficult. Both players have won plenty of points at the net. Katie with several impressive passing shots.

Good performance overall from Katie, assisted by Leolia's surprising lack of confidence when serving. Quite a lot of Swan winners given the slow playing conditions.

I looked when the match started and Katie was a slight favourite with Bet365. But then all four Brits were very close one way or the other.

 I did notice that Harriet and Dolehide were both being quoted at 10/11 which tempted me in for a wee wager on Harriet.

Now that I've pitched in for Harriet, bet365 has eased her out slightly lol. Dolehide 8/11, Harriet evens

A repeat of last year's heroics is looking rather unlikely as Harriet drops serve and trails 0*-2 in the second.....
