    4th seed Tsitsipas has lost in four sets to Colombian qualifier Daniel Galan.

    10th seed Fritz has also lost in four sets to American qualifier (and son of Tracy Austin) Brandon Holt. Holt had to get a wildcard for the qualifiers and now he’s beaten the top American in the main draw.

    Almost happened simultaneously.

    Both of those seeds were in Murray’s quarter of the draw. Great news for him, and the remaining top seeds in that quarter: Berrettini (13) and Ruud (5).

    Hopefully Murray can stay fit and avoid five set matches.

    A decent run here for Draper and Murray and they both could hit the top 40 in terms of ranking.
  • And Serena progressed to the 2nd round in her farewell event, beating Montenegro's Danka Kovinic in straight sets
  • Hope Raducanu does well - her ranking will crash with an early exit here.

    Watched that King Richard film about the Williams sisters yesterday, enjoyed it, good film but felt like it glossed over any nuances (pushy parent, leaving his other family etc), and I'm not sure it was worth an Oscar for Will Smith.

    Tough draw, too.

    She is currently world no. 79 on the live rankings, two places ahead of Harriet Dart at 81. Winning today would push her (Raducanu) up five places to 74.

  • Fully expect Cornet to win

    Cam Norrie has a double break in the first set against Benoit Paire. He leads 4-0.

    They've both broken the top 50 on the live rankings now after both winning in the first round.

    Murray #46
    Draper #50

    Draper faces Felix Auger-Aliassime in the next round which may be a step too far at this stage of his career. While I'm hopeful that Murray can win against American wildcard and world no. 200 Emilio Nava.

    Agree with that. Will Smith is very watchable in some very watchable films but he’s never struck me as a great actor.
  • Norrie beats Paire 6-0 7-6 6-0.

    Dan Evans has just broken Jiri Vesely's serve in the first set to take a 1-2 lead.
  • In terms of upsets today, only one to report so far: in the women's draw, 16th seed Jelena Ostapenko has lost in three sets to Qinwen Zheng.
  • Rybakina the Wimbledon champion out in first round - hard to predict results in the women's game.
  • Norrie beats Paire 6-0 7-6 6-0.

    Dan Evans has just broken Jiri Vesely's serve in the first set to take a 1-2 lead.
    A weird scoreline. 2 completely one sided sets, but one in the middle which went all the way!

    Raducanu breaks Cornet's serve in the first game of the match.
  • Cornet breaks back immediately. 1-1 and on serve.
  • Cornet wins the first set 6-3.
  • edited August 31
    Cornet breaks in the first game of the second set. Could be downhill from here.

    Raducanu winning/competing in the short rallies but Cornet is just playing defensive and letting Raducanu make mistakes.

    Stat on the coverage: Cornet is winning rallies of nine shots or more by 17-7.
  • Raducanu breaks serve back immediately. 1-1 in the set.

  • Three games in a row for Raducanu. Leads 3-1 in the second set after being in a difficult position.

    Another break. For Cornet.

    3-2 Raducanu and back on serve. Only one game held in this set so far.
  • Another Cornet break. Leads 3-4.
  • edited August 31
    Cornet wins 6-3 6-3.

    Raducanu couldn’t beat Cornet’s defences. 90% of shots that might’ve been a winner against others was coming back.

  • Although it is against the rules at most tournaments, i've noticed that there's a rule change here and players will now be allowed to receive coaching from the stands during the tournament.

  • Raducanu’s win last year beginning to look like the biggest flash in the pan in the history of sport. Too much too soon?  Cant believe how quickly and spectacularly she has fallen.

    She's still only 19, give her time.

    Last year's win was a huge outlier, but I think it'd be seen as OK if it wasn't for that win - she's beating people outside of the top 50, say, and losing to those inside, needs to improve next year, etc.
  • Raducanu's win was a reflection of how open the Women's game is - the last 12 Grand Slam titles have been won by 9 different players. This isn't an era where three or four players are clearly so much better than the rest - compare that to the Men's game where the big three have won 63 of the last 73 titles in the last 18 years.

    That isn't to say that Raducanu wasn't worthy of winning the US title last year, because she was, but unless she brings some consistency to her game then it will be hard for her to do. Her age, experience and numerous distractions in the last year including her change of coaches, rapid fame and all the off the court activities that come with it won't have helped either.

    Definitely seem to be very few dominant players in the women's game hence this widens the pool of possible winners. The Wimbledon champion also lost in the first round.

    Raducanu is a top 100 player who hopefully can work her way back up the rankings.
