It appeared that Errani, who has never gone beyond round three at SW19, was going to ease through when she broke her 20-year-old opponent's serve on two separate occasions to claim the first set.

However, Garcia responded in the second set, which went into a tie-breaker. Following an even start, Garcia took control and won through 7-3, forcing a deciding set in the process.

There was very little to split the two players throughout the decisive rubber, but a late break saw the French right-hander advance into round two.
