BRADY 6-3 3-6 7-9 MLADENOVIC: FINALLY. Mladenovic serves it out to 15, and she promptly bursts into tears. 91 unforced errors shared between this pair this afternoon.

-

BRADY 6-3 3-6 7-8 MLADENOVIC: Another break in play for a frank exchange of views between Mladenovic and the umpire. And then another break of serve. Maybe Mladenovic can serve it out this time.

- 

BRADY 6-3 3-6 7-7 MLADENOVIC: Nobody wants any match points, it seems.

- 

BRADY 6-3 3-6 6-7 MLADENOVIC: A positively enraged Mladenovic breaks Brady and prepares once more to try and get this job done.

- 

BRADY 6-3 3-6 6-6 MLADENOVIC: Brady has been standing way back to receive, gifting Mladenovic points, and yet she still manages to break back. The Frenchwoman complains for a bit, running the clock down a bit.

- 

BRADY 6-3 3-6 5-6 MLADENOVIC: Finally, the Frenchwoman is in front. She gets the break after some more big forehands, and now she's serving for the match.

- 

BRADY 6-3 3-6 5-5 MLADENOVIC: Mladenovic holds serve to stay in the match. The stands are filling up now.

- 

-

BRADY 6-3 3-6 4-4 MLADENOVIC: And now Brady breaks back! This is real gutsy work from both, with plenty of mistakes as the pressure begins to tell.

- 

BRADY 6-3 3-6 3-4 MLADENOVIC: Brady is fading fast and her game is becoming increasingly inconsistent as Mladenovic puts the pressure on. Brady hits it long and the Frenchwoman breaks again to take her fourth game in a row.

- 

BRADY 6-3 3-6 3-3 MLADENOVIC: And now a love hold for Mladenovic as the "Kiki!" chants break out again. Their girl is on the rise.

- 

BRADY 6-3 3-6 3-2 MLADENOVIC: Brady serves up an error-strewn game as we tick past the two-hour mark. Mladenovic is right back into this.

- 

BRADY 6-3 3-6 3-0 MLADENOVIC: Brady is three-love up now, just as she was at the start of the first, and although the Paris crowd are trying to rouse their girl with chants of "Kiki! Kiki!" she isn't yet responding.

-

BRADY 6-3 3-6 2-0 MLADENOVIC: Brady breaks. Horrendous error from Mladenovic on serve, hitting a forehand ridiculously skewed across court and going out wide of the net.

- 
-

BRADY 6-3 3-6 MLADENOVIC: Brady saves the first set point but not the second. Just over 40 minutes for Mladenovic to take that second set and level things up - she's moving and turning much better.

- 

BRADY 6-3 3-5 MLADENOVIC: Another break for Kiki and she's going to get the chance to serve this out. This is more like the Mladenovic we've been watching of late.

- 

BRADY 6-3 2-4 MLADENOVIC: Another absolute yodel of a shout from Mladenovic as she secures deuce on the Brady serve. The American isn't dropping it again, though, firing right back and earning some grudging applause.

-

BRADY 6-3 1-3 MLADENOVIC: A roar from Mladenovic and from her compatriots as she breaks the Brady serve to nudge into the lead in the second set. She's suddenly moving much better.

-

BRADY 6-3 MLADENOVIC: Odd opening set here, with that lengthy medical attention for Maldenovic, but can't say Brady hasn't deserved it - she serves it out to love as the Roland Garros crowd groan.

- 

BRADY 5-2 MLADENOVIC: Some booming forehands from Mladenovic give her an opportunity to break, but Brady is coping with everything that's being thrown at her.

- 

BRADY 4-1 MLADENOVIC: Brady takes to her seat, sheltering under the umbrella, while Mladenovic grits her teeth, sips some drink, and stares at the ground.

-

It's the first changeover and there's a medic and the supervisor on for Mladenovic.

- 

BRADY 3-0 MLADENOVIC: There's absolute silence from the Paris crowd as their girl Kiki goes a break down early on to the young American.

14:55 

Next up, it's Kiki Mladenovic against Jennifer Brady. Should be interesting - after the end of her doubles partnership with Caroline Garcia, her singles form is really taking off.
