7:33 pm
details coming from the tennis at wimbledon. and the critics, too. but we stuff of england. they said they wa nted we stuff of england. they said they wanted to leave russia and starbuck they do so in defeat again to their belgians. it goes back to the last match in the group stages in the bag and all those changes. they lost to belgium. that match didn't mean that much at all. the match in saint petersburg, the third—place play—off. nobody wants to play in that match. they just play—off. nobody wants to play in that match. theyjust want play—off. nobody wants to play in that match. they just want to play—off. nobody wants to play in that match. theyjust want to get out of town and to leave the world cup but it is belgium who have those bronze medals around their neck after winning to nil. that is their best at a world cup. finishing third. as for england, harry caine says they are still improving. they've got a to learn but they will leave russia now with their heads
7:34 pm
held high. at the match was down rowan. it is the match no team really wants to play in. a reminder ofjust how much closure came to the main event but for england this was a chance to end a stirring campaign on a hype. they say no one remembers who finishes third of the world cup by belgianhunger was immediately apparent, and less than four minutes gone. despite being the tournament's top scorer harry kane failed to find the net and here again wasn't quite happening. england improved. brilliant belgian counterattack ended with the best out ofjordan pickford. but there was nothing he could do. england's great russian adventure finally ended with back—to—back defeats. it was a
7:35 pm
really difficult challenge, probably a step too far for us. i reflect that the players have given absolutely everything right the way through. i'm incredibly proud of what they are done. i think we've gone beyond what we thought was probably possible and we also know where we sit, you know. we are a little bit of the top four or five teams know what we've never hidden from that. this team returned home far from the finished article but the last month shows they are now heading in the right direction. a very honest appraisal in that report from gareth southgate. lydia from a couple of players now. here is the captain. it is not the way we wanted to finish. as a team we know we can do better and that is the exciting thing as well. we've got a young tea m thing as well. we've got a young team that want to learn and improve so team that want to learn and improve so we've got a lot to look forward to for the next couple of years and
7:36 pm
get ready for the euros. i think we can be really proud of ourselves. just the experience of being ata ourselves. just the experience of being at a world cup and to know what it feels like to play at the highest level. we're all so young. such a young team and i think we can be proud of what we achieved this tournament even though the last two games were a disappointment but i hope the country are proud of us and, you know, we're proud of ourselves. england will be heading home. they might get home in time for france against croatia for not come back later in the programme we will look ahead to tomorrow's final here at the stadium. the final match at this world cup. it did not quite work out for germany here in a world cup summer for germany here in a world cup summer but they have a champion at wimbledon. john watson is at the all england club. don. yes, 0llie foster, many thanks indeed. germany do have a champion and that is kerber who lifted the ladies‘ singles title
7:37 pm
here on day 12 of these championships. the ladies final was meant to be the main focus today, wasn't it? but of course we also at the conclusion of the second men's singles semifinal which was suspended overnight. novak djokovic coming through against rafi ahmed al. kerber springing a surprise against serena williams to win a third grand slam title. in what was a repeat of their final in 16. kerber showing signs of the former to go to those two grand slam titles backin to go to those two grand slam titles back in 2016. it had been a fairy tale tournament so far for serena williams. remember she gave birth to her first williams. remember she gave birth to herfirst child in williams. remember she gave birth to her first child in september last year. some ten months ago. she returned only to the tour back in march playing competitive tennis. there's been an incredible return to form for serena williams when you consider the time she spent away following the birth of child and the subsequent health problems that she suffered afterwards. she says in the
7:38 pm
weeks that she was laid up following the bread, some six weeks, she could barely walk to the press box to collect her mail and yet here she is contesting yet another wimbledon final. the fact that we were talking about as a contender is testament to her as a champion here. there was huge support for her out on centre court but she just cannot get past kerber today, the german coming through in straight sets. for all the finals and hurdles this is perhaps serena's greatest match. 36 rod williams had a baby last year. she said she could barely walk to her letterbox now she's back on the centre. the instinct has never escaped but she would need all those flashes to topple kerber. the german new defence was key to a first wimbledon title. stay in the rallies and wait for the openings. everything williams does at the moment and won has the answer.
7:39 pm
that persistent laws forcing the errors. williams had lost sight of how to finish the american whaling, kerber clinch the first set. and there are tears, williams is going to have to do it the hard way. kerber the urgency, williams increased the volume. but in the face of that power, kerber kept her composure but a pretty grand slam wins came two years ago, now she's found her best again. 0nce found her best again. once again superb from kerber. this yea r‘s once again superb from kerber. this year's women's draw seen other star names fall early. quietly curb has turned her way through each round. the greatest asian seizing the moment, becoming a champion. and verities now. not to be for serena williams today. defeat for serena is not the fairy tale they expected but to get this far so soon is a victory in itself. this was a win built on her own kind
7:40 pm
of resilience. it was such an amazing tournament for me. applause i was really happy to get this far. it is obviously disappointing but it can't be disappointed, you know. i've so much to look forward to. i literally just getting started i've so much to look forward to. i literallyjust getting started so i look forward to it. it isjust a dream come true again. of course i have to say serena yuri great, great person and the champion. i mean, you're coming back and you're such an inspiration for everyone , and you're such an inspiration for everyone, for everybody, for all of us, everybody watching you. i mean, really. it is amazing and i'm sure you will have your next grandson title soon, i really, really sure.
7:41 pm
yes, i'm sure she will of course because all the top coming into today but the final was about whether serena williams, 22 grand slam titles to name, can she go on and igor margaret court's records of 24 and igor margaret court's records of 2a grand slams. kerber proving a too far today for serena williams as we know them there is the us open still to come. just put us into some kind of context. for kerber, after that breakthrough year in 201621 those two grand slam singles titles, last year she dropped out of the top 20. she was not able to successfully defend her australian open title at the turn of the year. she teamed up with a new coach at the end of last year. perhaps that is helped regain that form which is to be my personal title you're doing. earlier. both former british number one, annabel croft, who told me that serena
7:42 pm
williams found an opponent who was inspired, rediscovering that form she found two years ago. she came up against a player who was just playing out of mind, she said her. i mean, everything betterwon touched turned to gold and about the game plan. she stood up on that baseline, she took the ball early. she was kind of pushing serena more than any other player had done during the course of the championship. she was making serena uncomfortable. she was putting her into the corners and the other thing she does exceptionally well is to defend. she was getting extra balls back into play. but i do think that serena williams was a little bit nervous today. she didn't get off to a great start. too many false starts. it just really a great start. too many false starts. itjust really wasn't her day. but i have to say it was kerber‘s perfect match today. what we make of her? she had that incredible year in 2016 dropped out of the top 20 bust years to come back now and win another slam, what
7:43 pm
do we put that success down to? iadmire the do we put that success down to? i admire the way she is really sort of had to rebuild herself and really find the solutions to the problems. and i think it is made at that more mentally tough. and i honestly been today she was incredibly composed camino. there is probably a lot of nerves jangling through her. i mean, this is a wonderful title to win, as in question russia at the australian and us open but several unsaid, wimbledon titles just that extra special. so it was wonderful to see someone who has been to elizabeth of tough times and has found a way to build themselves up again. herfirst tournament build themselves up again. her first tournament since the birth of their first her first tournament since the birth of theirfirst child, her first tournament since the birth of their first child, how pressured bb brevis comeback? just put it into what an achievement that is in itself to get that's good but this far? everyone knows it has been an unbelievable achievement. should a baby ten months ago, it is an extraordinary achievement. anyone who has had a baby knows her utterly exhausting it is. just even
7:44 pm
functioning as a human being when you have a new baby, let alone adding into that equation trying to play top level tennis, so to reach the wimbledon final i hope that she realises what an achievement that is. she should be very proud of us out. she won't be happy, though. which will be immediately refocusing on how to win the us open. the parts thereof annabel croft reflecting on the ladies' singles final. the start of which traditionally is that 2pm but the start time put back today. the men's semifinals, the second of the men set semifinals. it was suspended yesterday after they came out on centre court after that epic battle between kevin anderson and john is no. novak djokovic resumed against rafael nadal two sets to one hour by rafael nadal two sets to one hour by rafael nadal two sets to one hour by
7:45 pm
rafael nadal broke in the fourth set, winning its 63. about vintage is matched to a decider. djokovic, though, fought back in their 52nd meeting was no doubt. they played each other more than any other two in the open era of men's tennis. djokovic took his second match point to edge a dramatic decider. ten games to rate. in five hours on 60 minutes. djokovic is the three—time champion and will now face south africa's kevin anderson came to a real epic of the zone. his semifinal busting six hours and 36 minutes. that was the second longest match in wimbledon history. you just wonder how exhausted novak djokovic and kevin anderson will be to centre court for the men's final tomorrow. there is some british success to tell you about. it is, the men's wheelchair doubles. alfie hewitt and gordon reid continuing their successful partnership once again at these wimbledon championships. they won the title in 2016, 2017 and
7:46 pm
they've one of the games this year. their third successive title. it came through 61, six four. they won against germany and sweden. i guess they just need to against germany and sweden. i guess theyjust need to decide who will keep it and which trophy cabinet thatis keep it and which trophy cabinet that is going to be stored in because they're getting used to collecting trophies, i read that? great news for them today and they dwell. we look forward to the men's final outcome tomorrow. kevin anderson up against novak djokovic asi anderson up against novak djokovic as i was saying. kerber triumphant today on ladies finals day. that is all from wimbledon for the moment on what has been another beautiful day here in south—west london. i will hand you back to salford with the rest of the day's sport. well, what a difference a couple of daysin well, what a difference a couple of days in cricket makes. after their heavy defeats to india on thursday england have bounced back to level the one—day series with a surprisingly easy 86 run victory at lord's. a century was called before
7:47 pm
india's batsmen crumpled. he was the report. still the number one team in the icc world rankings but england have much to prove at lord's. after a promising start they lost their way with earnings. england took by struggling for runs but there was a chance. 50 of 31 balls. 0ther struggling for runs but there was a chance. 50 of 31 balls. other end there wasn't a better time for a one—day touch, very welcome century. they lost their first three wickets forjust 60 runs. the master of the run chase put on the next wicket. he was stopped in its tracks. his partner followed soon after. he might have expected more from india. about 86 runs short of their target and the series ghost of a decider,
7:48 pm
smiles possibly unexpectedly back on england's faces. it will be a great game ahead. still the same man wearing the yellow jersey. an overall advantage of seven seconds ahead of wales. another sprint finish today but mark cavendish are struggling for form and ended up in seventh place. he still has not won a stage this year. the stage was won by a dutch sprinter. his second in a row, defending champion chris froome finished in the main bunch. his 12th overall. as expected chelsea have confirmed their new manager. the boz replaces on a three—year deal and says he hopes to provide some entertaining football for the bands that they will be competing for trophies at the end of the season. the spaniard left the last moment to

7:52 pm
beating england two nil. some doubts we re beating england two nil. some doubts were cast on a player ‘s future at chelsea. it has been heavily linked with real madrid. i'm sure that story will develop over the next days and weeks. we also heard from more england players as well. eric dyer, not first choice under gareth southgate, started against the belgians in saint petersburg but he has been behind jordan henderson in the pecking order. he got the winning penalty against the colombians. here is his take on england's state. it is so difficult to reflect on anything that has happened, really, in this world cup. we go from game to game and you're just in this world cup. we go from game to game and you'rejust in a bubble, really. so now we will get some time off and i'm sure we will all look back and take on what we have over
