Welcome to the live coverage of the evening standard of the French Open.
Britain’s three biggest hopes were dashed when Murray met former world number four Kai Nishikori against his 16-year-old rival Stan Wawrinka and 16-year-old Coca-Cola and Evans in a match against Konda.
Today’s drama includes an all – American encounter with Serena Williams, Christy Ahan, Rafael Nadal and Egor Gerasimov, and two more Brits in singles action.
Liam Brody faces Giri Wesley on Court 10 before Cameron Nori faces Daniel Galen on the same court.
Matt Davies and Joe Krishnan bring you all the tennis work from Roland Garros
Brody leaves the first set!
This is not going to be a big deal for Liam Brody of the United Kingdom, however, leaving the first set of the tournament, including the qualifiers.
Brody lost the opener 6-2 to fellow seed Wesley. However, there is still a long way to go.
Williams takes the first set!
Williams 7-5 ah
Well, it wasn’t easy, but Serena Williams finally takes the first set against Christy Anne!
Despite breaking twice, he overcame his opponent 7-2 at the tie-break and finished the set with an ice!
Williams crashed once more
Williams 5-5 ah
Both back on track. Williams will definitely win the set from here … right?
Williams crashed instantly!
Do you believe? Williams eventually worked hard to secure the break. The next game, she’s down again – she’s fallen in love!
Christy Ahn will serve for the opening set!
Williams is back!
Williams 4-4 ah
Williams makes a scream in celebration as he returns to the first set 4-4. At 39, it’s clear how much each set means to Williams!

Next on the Philip-Chartier court is Serena Williams, who faces fellow American Christy Ann.
The pair played each other at the same stage of the US Open two weeks ago, with Williams winning straight sets.
Game, set, match
Theme advanced to the second round!
Silic 4-6 3-6 3-6
They weren’t much harder than Marin Cilic as a first-round opponent, but Dominic Theme did well to advance to the second round.
There is no hangover from the US Open victory. He will be a tough man to beat!
A game is far away!
Silic 4-6 3-6 2-5
In this third and final set, Silik took a 2-0 lead and then won five of the theme bounces.
Silic is now helping to stay in the competition.

Literally normal service resumed. We are now back on the Philip-Charitable Court with the theme winning the last three matches in a row.
Out of court results
Silic 4-6 3-6 2-0 Theme
Well, what do we have here! Concentration from the theme as Silic Break 15 in the first match of the third set.
Croatia wants to take a 2-0 lead.
Silic 4-6 3-6 theme
After sealing the interval of serves in the first game of the set, the theme claims another one at the end! It was the most dominant set from the Austrians moving within a set of the second round!
Silic came from two sets eight times in the back, but now it seems so hard!
Outside court updates
As I reported earlier, the rain in Paris has stopped and the game is taking place on the outside courts. Here are the top four updates outside of Philip-Chartier Court.
Theme crashes instantly!
Silic 4-6 0-1 theme
To humiliate the injury, the theme breaks instantly to take the lead in the second set! Silic has a lot of work to do to get back!
The theme takes the first set!
Silic 5-7 theme
It’s too big for the theme to pick up the opening set. It’s silly to take a 0-40 lead, but the Austrian fights to Deuce before converting as his opponent widens.
It was a perfectly competitive first set, but takes a theme!
Theme to serve for the set!
Silic 4-5 theme
Silic looked very strong throughout, but he made a few bad mistakes when recovering the theme gain.
He now has a chance to claim the decisive first set!
