The 2010 Wimbledon women’s main draw singles 2nd round matches are now complete. This means that matches 9 to 16 from the draw listed below will be played today and matches 1 to 8 will be played tomorrow. The scores will be updated on this post for both days. Below are the results for Friday.

The 3rd round is the round in which the seeded players play off against each other for the 1st time in the tournament. It will be played today and tomorrow (Friday 25 June and Saturday 26 June), after which only  16 women will remain in the draw. Play will begin at 12pm local time in London on both days.

Pictured above is Kim Clijsters getting up off the ground to hit the ball during her service motion. Clijsters won the 2009 US Open in her 1st Grand Slam singles event of her comeback after retiring from the game to have a baby. The 27 year old Belgian’s best results at Wimbledon are making the semi finals in 2003 and again in 2006.

Clijsters may have to battle against Justine Henin if they both get through the 3rd round. Clijsters has had the better of Henin lately, so may come through her half of the draw to play in the final at Wimbledon this year.

The players name that is bolded is OCA’s prediction of who will win each match. Any player who has a line drawn through their name is a seeded player who was expected to win through to the 3rd round.
