20:32And you know what's brilliant? 'Pospisil and Sock' is a worldwide trend on Twitter right now.. I'll leave you with that fabulous thought, and look forward to seeing you tomorrow for a little bit of Federer-Djokovic Episode 35. Can. Not. Wait.
20:29Jack Sock and Vasek Pospisil are the first pair to win a Grand Slam title in their first tournament together since Mirnyi/Hewitt at the 2000 US Open.
20:27Ladies and gentlemen, as NO ONE predicted, Vasek Pospisil becomes the first grand slam champion from the new crop of Canadian tennis players!!!
20:25Big ovation for the Bryan brothers - but they look pretty shellshocked. They're still awaiting their 99th title as a pair.
With the win, @JackSock (21 yrs, 285 days) becomes the 3rd youngest man in the Open Era to win both a Grand Slam men’s & mixed doubles title— Wimbledon (@Wimbledon) July 5, 2014
20:21Wow. What a match. What an achievement. Jack Sock and Vasek Pospisil are playing in their first ever tournament together.
20:17Sock socks it to 'em with a clutch volley and the unseeded pair have two more Championship points. Two aces from Mike B but now some thumping forehands from Pospisil forces the volley error. Fifth match point and the first serve is into the net - and now Sock finds the forehand winner to win the title for the younger pair!
20:16Very good point Mateus and one I hadn't thought of. There's a huge roar as now Mike Bryan steps out to serve to keep the twins in the title hunt, trailing 6-5.
20:15I was wondering if the fact that only at Wimbledon the doubles matches are best of 5 (besides DC) don't give a better chance for mainly singles players that are already more used to 3 hours matches, like Pospisil, Sock, or Ivan Dodig (finalist in 2013).
20:11Bob Bryan serves a double fault to leave the Bryans facing TWO Championship points at 5-4 down. Both saved and we're back level at 5-5. Incredible atmosphere on Centre - where Jack Nicklaus is still enjoying the action.
20:09Martina Navratilova and Selima Sfar were BEATEN in today's Ladies' Invitational final by Jana Novotna and Barbara Schett. I watched Nav and Sfar absolutely thrash Keothavong/Martinez the other day. Believe me, there was nothing very 'invitational' about it.
20:05Ivan Ljubicic and Goran Ivanisevic are out of the Invitational Dubs, leaving Eltingh/Haarhuis and Philippousis/Enqvist to battle it out for title glory. In the Senior Invitational, it's Leach/Woodforde against Forget/Pioline. And some BOMBSHELL news about the Invitational Ladies' Doubles coming up...
Thank you @Wimbledon for best experience ever by far. Great honor to be part of it again. See you in 2015— Ivan Ljubicic (@theljubicic) July 5, 2014
20:01So, no pressure Vasek Pospisil, but Canada's hopes of a Wimbledon title rest solely with you. Pospisil and Sock lead the Bryans 4-3 in the fifth set, no breaks.
19:59Max Mirnyi and Hao-Ching Chan book their place in the mixed doubles final with a 7-6, 7-5 win over Daniel Nestor and Kristina Mladenovic. They'll play Nenad Zimonic and Sam Stosur in Sunday's final.
19:45What a treat for these Centre Court fans: they've already seen a masterclass from Petra Kvitova, history made by Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci and now a cracking five-setter in the men's doubles final. Money's worth right there.
19:40Onto a fifth set we go! The Bryans hold for a 6-3 fourth against Sock/Pospisil with an ace. It's the first five-setter for the American brothers this tournament; Sock/Pospisil won in a fifth set in round two vs. Bopanna/Qureshi.
19:30Looks like the Bryans are going to take us into a fifth set. They lead 4-1 in the fourth over Sock/Pospisil.
19:20Live @ Wimbledon Radio reporter Rupert Bell has just popped by The Bunker to alert me to the fact that Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci are the first Italians to win a senior title at Wimbledon in 128 years of the tournament. WOW.
I'm getting better day by day not too fast. But better... I love you all thanks for the support. One day at a time xxx S— Serena Williams (@serenawilliams) July 5, 2014
19:12We're under the roof on Centre Court
19:04Vasek Pospisil serves out to love and he and Jack Sock - the unseeded pair in their first Grand Slam tournament - are two sets to one up on the mighty Bryan brothers. Blimey.
18:58Centre Court is in a state of shock: we have a break of serve for the first time since early in the first set. It goes to Pospisil/Sock and they lead 5-3 over the Bryans in the third set.
I love the quick game of Bryans. Hopefully they will have another title at #Wimbledon in a few moments. :-)— Rahul Duggal (@rahulduggal18) July 5, 2014
18:43Errani and Vinci win the women's doubles title
18:36It's one set all in this tighter-than-tight men's doubles final, and it's one tie-break all. No chest bump from the Bryans, they're all business.
18:32Wouldn't you know it? It's another tie-break: can the Bryans sneak it and level that match? They could play all night* under that roof...
18:21Serve dominating on Centre as the Bryans level up against Pospisock at 4-4, the twins down a set.
18:11The Bryans' famous chest bump - but they're a set down
It’ll be kind of amazing if after all is said and done for Canada over this fortnight it’s Vasek Pospisil that is a Wimbledon champion.— Courtney Nguyen (@FortyDeuceTwits) July 5, 2014
17:52Vasek Pospisil sweeps a forehand winner into the corner and he and fellow upstart Jack Sock have the first set against the mighty Bryan bros.
17:50We're into a first-set tie-break on Centre Court. The Bryans have won all four of the breakers they've played this week.
17:44Kvitova shows off her fancy new plate
Tough loss today at Wimbledon, but you're an inspiration @geniebouchard & Canada couldn't be more proud of you.— Stephen Harper (@pmharper) July 5, 2014
17:31"That was crazy. I did see her in the box. I'm very happy that she came out. Disappointed I couldn't put on a better show for her, but I'd love to meet her, of course. It's the only person I'm named after. She's the only one in the world... If she's still here, hopefully I'll get a chance to meet her. I don't know."
17:22Genie Bouchard may have lost but Canada's hopes of a Grand Slam title this fortnight are far from over. Daniel Nestor will partner Kristina Mladenovic in the mixed semis later, and on Centre Vasek Pospisil and his American partner Jack Sock are on serve against the Bryans in the early stages.
17:13"I love to play finals. I love to play on the big stadium. This is something really special... Definitely I was in the zone, but I was still thinking it is the final and I knew the emotion. I can say it's a little bit like a Fed Cup when I'm playing in the Czech and I feel the crowd. My stomach is a little bit funny. It just goosebumps."
17:10The boys' final is set: Noah Rubin will play fellow American Stefan Kozlov after a rain-interrupted 6-4, 6-2 win over another American, Taylor Harry Fritz.
17:03It's men's doubles final o'clock on Centre Court, which still has its lid on. Bob and Mike Bryan are playing in their 26th Grand Slam final (and going for a 16th title), Jack Sock and Vasek Pospisil are making their major final bow.
16:47Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci become only the fifth pair in history to win a full set of Grand Slam titles. They overwhelm Kristina Mladenovic and Timea Babos 6-1, 6-3. Vinci has been turning up at Wimbledon since 2002 but quarter-finals was her best result before this victory.
16:45"Yeah he does actually! It's nothing new, nothing special. I don't think he was the only one. I was crying too. My dad is very emotional: it's his birthday tomorrow so I'm glad he has a nice present."
16:42Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci now lead 6-1, 5-2 against first-time Grand Slam finalist Kristina Mladenovic and Timea Babos. One game away from completing the set...
16:37So Petra Kvitova, has your defence ever been better than today? "Probably not! A few shots were really incredible and I couldn't believe I made it. It was really incredible. I was thinking 'Oh my God this is good!' I could really run and get everything back."
16:35Petra Kvitova is facing the media now. First question, is this the best match you've ever played? "It seems like it right? Definitely one of the best. I really played so well today. I was very focused on every point."
16:27Roberta Vinci and Sara Errani are rolling along to a career Grand Slam on Centre Court. They lead Babos/Mladenovic 6-1, 2-1. The Italian pair can become only the fifth partnership to win all four major titles.
Congratulations Petra. What a fantastic achievement !!! pic.twitter.com/IolTaSb11K— Petr Cech (@PetrCech) July 5, 2014
16:21RP, how about Halep v Sharapova in last month's French Open final? I will concede there hasn't been a particularly closely-matched Wimbledon final since Mauresmo-Henin in 2006. But I think I was just as impressed by Kvitova's gobsmacking display to be honest. And if Federer blows away Djokovic tomorrow - or vice versa - I'll feel the same.
16:18Kvitova played really well today, but she was allowed to do so. I have not seen ladies' singles finals in which both players excelled.
16:15"Comfort food is the best! I'll definitely have dessert tonight - brownie or something."
16:08"She was on. She has weapons, and we know when she's on, she's very tough to beat, especially on this surface. I just have to give her credit: she deserved to win today."
16:04"It was a big moment walking out onto Centre Court for my first final. I hope I walk out for many more but I'm going to go back and work on my game because you always need to get better. I'm very motivated to win a Grand Slam, it's been a lifelong dream of mine."
@Wimbledon Steffi Graf ‘92, Venus 07, Serena ’10.— Michael de Leon™ (@michaeldeleon22) July 5, 2014
15:54We will continue to chew over the women's final but there's more tennis to be played today and two more trophies up for grabs. In the women's dubs just getting under way, Kristina Mladenovic and Timea Babos meet Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci.
Navratilova (9), Graf (7), Venus (5), Serena (5), and now Kvitova (2) - the only multiple ladies' singles champs @Wimbledon in last 30yrs— Michael Beattie (@anothermikeyb) July 5, 2014
15:44I know that final was short - less than an hour in fact - but how about we focus on a grass-court masterclass from Petra Kvitova? Can't remember when I last saw a performance that good in a final. Maybe you disagree and I'd be happy to hear from you: email@example.com or @CarolineCheese
15:41Kvitova gets her hands on the trophy
15:33Petra Kvitova greets Martina Navratilova, Helena Sukova and the ever-present Marion Bartoli inside Centre Court before she heads out onto the balcony to show off the Venus Rosewater Dish to an impressive crowd all wielding umbrellas in the now heavy rain.
15:28"Hopefully it's going to be good for everybody. [Looking up at Navratilova] I still have many more to win to try to get as many as Martina! After my second title, I hope it's going to be a bit easier for me now."
15:26Not sure Genie Bouchard was too keen to stay on court and do her lap of honour, but hopefully the reaction of the crowd will cheer her up. A chastening experience in her first Grand Slam final - but if anyone has the steely determination to recover...
15:24"Definitely I had a great tactic from my coach - he always know how I should play. My team helped me over the years to come back here and win the trophy again [tearful now] I can't say it's more special [than 2011] but after three years to be here with the trophy again it's amazing.... It's an amazing time for me."
15:23Petra Kvitova keeps her celebrations pretty muted - hey, she's done it all before and hey, after all, this is Wimbledon, we don't like a lot of noise.
15:18"I'd like to congratulate Petra. She played fantastic these two weeks. It was really tough for today but I'm proud of how I played this tournament. I feel like it's a step in the right direction. I don't know if I deserve all your love today but I appreciate it."
15:17Genie Bouchard just about manages a smile as she picks up the runners-up plate. Crowd try to give her a lift with a rousing ovation - Marion Bartoli is on her feet in the Royal Box.
15:16Kvitova wins her second Wimbledon title
15:13The Roof people (as I like to call them) were right: the rain has arrived, but it won't be getting anywhere near the famous Venus Rosewater Dish. The presentation party and now the players are back out under the roof.
I can't remember seeing a better performance in a Wimbledon final than that. Bouchard didn't even play badly - Kvitova unstoppable today— Simon Cambers (@scambers73) July 5, 2014
15:09This is a new one: the players leave the court as the Centre Court roof is closed in preparation for the trophy ceremony. The threat of rain was obviously too much. No hanging around from the All England Club though, who are already putting 'Miss P Kvitova' on the winners' board - a second appearance on there for the Czech.
15:07Kvitova falls flat on her back and then after shaking hands with a shell-shocked Bouchard, she makes her way up to her player box - through the brand new gate! - and hugs each and every one of them.
15:04Bouchard thumps a forehand winner to get to 30-30 and there's a huge cheer from the crowd - but then a backhand hits the net and it's match point for Kvitova. Utterly rampant from the Czech, who hammers a 28th and final winner to win her second Wimbledon crown. A quite astounding performance.
15:03Woman behind me in a very British accent: 'I don't know, she just seems to have given up.'
15:00It's just way too good from Kvitova. I'm not sure Bouchard has done a lot wrong here. Here's a stat: the Canadian has hit only four unforced errors.
14:57Kvitova is playing lights out tennis right now - and we should probably just sit back and enjoy it. Bouchard with a game point and on the offensive, but Kvitova produces a mindblowing pass on the run. Two thumping returns later and she has the double break. We haven't even reached the hour mark yet.
14:52A little glimmer for Bouchard as a rare winner helps her recover from 40-15 to deuce. Two big serves from Kvitova and the glimmer disappears. I'm no expert by any means, but if I were Bouchard, I might take a step back and try to get a better read on these bombs that Kvitova is sending down.
14:52Crowd is definitely for Bouchard, but I think they just want more competitive tennis in general. Feels a lot like last year's final when Bartoli pounced on Lisicki. Petra is scorching the ball even harder in person. It's amazing.
14:49Bouchard 's serve is just under so much pressure. Kvitova's deep return hits the line and Bouchard mis-hits to be broken. Hard to see a way back for Bouchard if Kvitova keeps this up.
14:4636 minutes gone on Centre Court and Kvitova ticks over to 20 winners - to Bouchard's 5. Huge game coming up now for the young Canadian.
14:44Go Genie Go!!! My sister is watching from Vancouver & I'm in Calgary, so we're texting back & forth in excitement! Who knew - a Canadian in the Wimbledon final!
14:41Gasps around Centre Court as Kvitova takes a stride out wide and dispatches a Bouchard serve cross-court for a clean winner. She has three set points. Kvitova keeps crunching the returns and is rewarded on the third. Time for Bouchard to go to Plan B. Does she have a Plan B?
14:38But wait... Bouchard threads a backhand up the line and she has two break-back points. Kvitova nets on the first. Hmmm, wasn't expecting that.
14:37I would like to welcome General Jim Parsons to the Genie Army and extend my best wishes to our Commander In Chief. Go Genie!
14:34This is the first time Bouchard has come up against a big-hitter at this tournament - and she's struggling to withstand the pressure. She double faults to give Kvitova two break points. A 15th crunching winner from Kvitova leaves her serving for the set.
14:32Double fault ruins the love service game but Kvitova finds an impossible angle off the forehand to leave Bouchard flapping at thin air.
Genie being given no time to settle & play her game. She's being forced to defend & react. Petra thumping the ball. Big hold though for 2/3.— Darren Cahill (@darren_cahill) July 5, 2014
14:26She's under huge pressure and she's showing it: Bouchard double-faults to go down 15-40. She saves those, but now here's another chance for the double break. Superb forehand from Bouchard forces the error. Great effort from the Canadian to hold and stay in touch.
14:20WHOAH! WHAT A SHOT! After a couple of deuces, Kvitova is on the defensive at game point - and manages to come up with a backhand slice winner cross-court. If that's not the shot of the day, well, we're in for a classic.
@CarolineCheese Party of Brits supporting Kvitova today. Come on Petra, you can do it again.— Phillipa Stewart (@Pipstew) July 5, 2014
14:16Boom! Kvitova swipes a glorious backhand cross-court to bring up the first break point of the final. She can't take that one but on a second she thumps a forehand winner onto the sideline. What a start from the Czech.
14:14Bouchard has been standing inside the baseline to return during a lot of her matches - but she's just about behind the line for Kvitova's mighty serve. The Czech finishes a comfy hold with a 112mph zinger.
14:13Strong start from the 20-year-old Bouchard in her first game in a Grand Slam final. She holds to 30 - both players seem to have come out firing though.
14:12I am rooting for Eugenie Bouchard. She will make a great champion. It is a relief to finally see someone being consistent at all Grand Slams.
14:09Before we get under way on Centre. another result to bring you. The girls' final is set as Kristina Schmiedlova of Slovakia beats Elena Ruse in three. The No.8 seed will play Latvia's Jelena Ostapenko tomorrow.
14:06Today's ump is Marija Cicak, from Zagreb, Croatia - her first Ladies' Singles final here.
14:03Sixteen-year-old Stefan Kozlov ensures we will have an all-American boys' final as he beats Jean Sebastien Tatlot in straight sets. He'll play Noah Rubin or Taylor Harry Fritz in Sunday's final.
14:02Genie Bouchard wins the toss and will, I think, serve first in her maiden Grand Slam final. Photos done, onto the warm-up we go.
14:00Each player carrying the most glorious bouquet of flowers, Petra Kvitova leads Genie Bouchard out onto Centre Court. Marion Bartoli - wearing a trademark extravagant necklace - smiles in the Royal Box. Penny for her thoughts...
13:58Medina Djouada will be performing the coin toss: the 15-year-old is representing the the European Association for the advancement of research into Leukodystrophies. The charity was nominated by 2013 champ Marion Bartoli, who is one of its patrons.
13:54We're getting closer: the ball boys and girls have arrived on Centre Court to a warm round of applause.
13:50That is hands down the saddest email I've ever read. Can someone please help Vera? Do you live in Burkina Faso? Can Vera come round your house and watch the final? Otherwise, Vera, you might be stuck with me - and that would be an awful fate :(
13:49This is a shot in the dark but perhaps it'll work. I'm in Burkina Faso and have a DStv subscription (paid up of course) but since yesterday there's no connection. I've called the provider here, several times but to no avail. It might be a bigger problem, with the system and not with my connection. However, it's Wimbledon finals day and I'm furious at not being able to watch! Internet is also incredibly slow and unstable here. Maybe there's someone out there who can help somehow?? Many thanks, it's worth a try.
13:47The rain has passed and the Centre Court roof is opening so we will at least start outdoors.
13:43This is the fourth straight year that three different players will win the first three Grand Slams of the season. Genie Bouchard would be the 43rd woman to win a Grand Slam singles title in the Open era and the first Canadian.
13:40"I'm pulling for Petra - but Eugenie will be a great champion. I'd be happy for either one, but the Czech roots are pretty strong. I give the slight edge to Petra. Whoever can handle the nerves better will win this one."
13:31"It's the first time in the Royal Box. It's great wandering around outside, having a glass of champagne and the strawberries and cream. It's amazing to have this tournament in our home town."
13:26This will be the first Grand Slam final between two players born in the 1990s.
@CarolineCheese Great to hear that Princess Eugenie is there to watch Genie! I'm cheering for Genie and Vasek in Ottawa.— Lynn Marshall (@LynnSMarshall) July 5, 2014
13:18Over on No.3 Court, American Stefan Kozlov has bagged the first set against Johan Sebastien Tatlot. If Kozlov wins, it'll be an all-USA final, as Noah Rubin meets Taylor Harry Fritz in the second all-American semi.
Marching band playing ``What do you do with a drunken sailor?'' on Centre Court— Steve Wilson (@stevewilsonap) July 5, 2014
13:09Dobrý den Czech Republic! (Think that's right) Welcome along, I knew you were out there. Unfortunately, a bit of bad news on the Czech front as Marketa Vondrousova loses in the girls' semi-finals 6-1, 6-2 to Jelena Ostapenko of Latvia.
13:07We are all expecting great match and believe in Petra´s experience and determination to win, so Petra "pojd" and show everyone that you can make it again, greetings from all Czechs.
13:00Anyone else hungry...?
12:57I'm here in Toronto, Canada ready to cheer Genie Bouchard on!! I have a feeling she's going to win it in two sets! Just wanted to share a Breakfast at Wimbledon tradition my family has, that my parents started over 35 years ago. We always eat donuts (from Canada's national donut chain - Tim Hortons) for Breakfast at Wimbledon. Normally we wait until the Men's Final to indulge, but this year is extra special and Canada's first ever Grand Slam finalist means normal tradition shifts and we will be having donuts both days! Yum!!
12:50Maybe the Czech Republic went out for the day? Anyway covers are OFF. Our junior semi-finals should be back under way shortly. In the girls' event, Latvia's Jelena Ostapenko is a tantalising game away from victory over Marketa Vondrousova. Romania's Elena Ruse has the first set in a much closer affair against Slovakian Kristina Schmiedlova.
12:44Well, the Genie Army seem to be in full voice today - but who's having a Petra Party? I'm determined to hear from someone in the Czech Republic. Let me hear you... Tweet @carolinecheese or email firstname.lastname@example.org
@CarolineCheese go bouchard! I'm a new Zealander living in Montreal and everyone and their squirrel is talking about Eugenie!— Rob Zohrab (@zohrab5150) July 5, 2014
12:38Hold up, it's now sunny... Wimbleweirdweather.
12:34We didn't get away with it: we have what I would call heavy drizzle falling and play is suspended. Boooooo. Not sure who it favours if the roof stays shut for the women's final...
@CarolineCheese I'm a Brit now living in Canada.Its 5am and I'm awake ready to cheer on Jeanie-fingers crossed for the first of many titles!— Sarah White (@SarahFWhite) July 5, 2014
12:27Courts not in use are being covered as threatening clouds loom. "If we get away with this, it'll be a miracle," reports Live @Wimbledon's Gigi Salmon. Oh dear. The roof is already on Centre Court.
12:23Johan Sebastien Tatlot is 18 and from Paris. His favourite players are Novak Djokovic and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Feisty affair on No.3 Court and he's just broken back in the first set.
12:13Stefan Kozlov is 16 and only 5ft 7ins. He says his favourite surface is clay and his favourite player is David Ferrer. So I'm deducing this is a decent effort to get to the semi-finals here on grass. He's being watched by fellow US junior Michael Mmoh, who has brilliant hair - reminiscent of Will Smith in his Fresh Prince days (or Grace Jones, if you prefer).
12:07Just when you think you can lord it over the USA and their woeful efforts at Wimbledon, they go and have three of the four semi-finalists in the boys' singles. It's Stefan Kozlov up against Johan Sebastien Tatlot of France in the first semi-final - and Kozlov has the early break at 3-1.
11:57Eugenie Bouchard is named after Princess Eugenie - and waddya know - Princess Eugenie is in the Royal Box today. Well done royal family for understanding newspaper demands. Also on the cushions: aforementioned Frank 'Lamps' Lampard, Jacques Rogge, Jack Nicklaus, Keira Knightley, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kelly Holmes and a whole host of tennis royalty, including the Martinas Hingis and Navratilova.
11:51Is it raining?, I enquire as a fellow Bunker dweller arrives. "No, but it's about to," comes the pessimistic reply. Official forecast: Occasional drizzly rain in the morning, drier from around midday, then passing showers from 2pm. I've put the roof on red alert...
11:47My plan is to bring you all the build-up to this potential cracker of a women's final (*crosses fingers*) as well as keeping you across the junior semi-finals this morning. But MAINLY, I want to hear from YOU - especially if you're in Canada or the Czech Republic. Tweet me @carolinecheese or send an old-fashioned email to email@example.com
11:42I can't call today's final, but luckily Frank Lampard has had a stab. England's early exit from the World Cup means the ex-Chelsea man can take a seat in the Royal Box today with his missus Christine Bleakley and he tells Live @ Wimbledon Radio he's backing Kvitova (although he admits he doesn't know much about tennis)
11:36You can always tell it's finals weekend here at Wimbledon by the buzz of helicopters flying overhead - and it was no different today. Less than two and a half hours to go until Petra Kvitova and Genie Bouchard walk onto Centre Court.
11:30We were just chatting here about who would win the men's and women's titles - and no one really had any idea. Brilliant, isn't it?
We want to hear from you! Tweet us @wimbledon or email firstname.lastname@example.org
