MARIA 4-6 2-6 HALEP: Game, set and match to Simona Halep. Maria begins with a double fault and then her serve is interrupted by what appears to be a stricken ballkid. Both players resume and Halep tightens the screws to finish this one off. She's looking good.
MARIA 4-6 3-5 HALEP: Simona Halep is a game away now. One hour and 20 minutes in to an entertaining and even match.
MARIA 4-6 3-4 HALEP: Maria has to work hard to keep hold of her serve, as Halep applies the pressure. She closes the gap, but the third seed will be ready to finish this off now.
MARIA 4-6 2-4 HALEP: Halep is asserting herself on serve; Maria is making her play to her limits. Lovely stuff.
MARIA 4-6 2-3 HALEP: Maria isn't out of this yet; it seems hard on her that she's behind when she's playing so well.
MARIA 4-6 1-3 HALEP: Great capitalising by Halep, but she's being pushed to her limit by Maria, who's playing some brilliant tennis.
MARIA 4-6 1-2 HALEP: Halep gets her early break once more, looking much more comfortable in the face of the Maria threat. She has been grimacing in the face of the sun in her eyes.
MARIA 4-6 1-1 HALEP: Some beautiful rallying on show here - great angles across the court.
MARIA 4-6 1-0 HALEP: A hold for Maria to open up the second; her service game is still a little cagey, with weak second-serve stats.
MARIA 4-6 HALEP: Finally, a Halep hold, and a fascinating and high-quality first set draws to a close. Can they keep this up? Will Halep's ankle hold out?
MARIA 4-5 HALEP: Yet another break for Simona Halep. Can she hold her own serve and see out this set?
MARIA 4-4 HALEP: A clenched fist from Maria as she breaks Halep again. The Romanian looks at her team, but no help is forthcoming.
MARIA 3-4 HALEP: A third successive break, as Halep uses a powerful smash to deceive Maria.
MARIA 3-3 HALEP: Immediate hit back from Maria when Halep looked set to consolidate.
MARIA 2-3 HALEP: The number three seed makes the break. Maria's less controlled game is punished by the solidity of the Romanian.
MARIA 2-2 HALEP: Maria is really giving Halep a working-over here in these opening exchanges.
MARIA 2-1 HALEP: A funny mishit from Maria as she attempts an expansive shot but she still holds serve.
MARIA 1-1 HALEP: Dominant service game from Halep, including an ace. That ankle looks OK so far.
MARIA 1-0 HALEP: Not the best of starts for Tatjana Maria, who tries to toss the ball a few times and then serves up a double-fault. She recovers to hold.
Tatjana Maria has a tough task on her hands - she's about to face Simona Halep. The two haven't met on court for eight years.
