GAME, SET AND MATCH! – TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 3-6 6-3 6-4 MURRAY

The Greek prevails after an epic four hour and 49 minute battle. The number three seed serves it out to love with the minimum of fuss and will head into round two against Mannarino relieved to have avoided a major shock.
Murray will rue a missed chance in the tie break but this was far more like the man who reached number one in the world. At times it was vintage Muzza and he will hope that he can now stay fit and build upon such a performance in the months ahead.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 3-6 6-3 5-4 MURRAY

It’s now or never for the three-time major winner. He has one last chance to break back here after surging through a hold to 30. Once again he looks to the crowd for the support. He still feels aggrieved at that delay between sets and jokes to the umpire that he wants the trainer!

TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 3-6 6-3 5-3 MURRAY

Too strong. You sense Murray may have had his chances to break. Tsitsipas coughs up just the one point and is now one game from round two.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 3-6 6-3 4-3 MURRAY

Muzza is on the charge, but can he actually find a way to win this? It’s a rampant love hold and it’s back to Stef.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 3-6 6-3 4-2 MURRAY

More frustration for Murray. He has a real look-in at 0-30 but overcooks a backhand and from there Tsitsipas takes charge with the forehand doing most of the damage.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 3-6 6-3 3-2 MURRAY

‘I’m not done yet’ is the message from Muzza. He surges through a strong hold to 15 to stay firmly in touch.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 3-6 6-3 3-1 MURRAY

Chance for Murray… ‘Let’s go, Andy... Let’s go, Andy…’ is the cry of encouragement from the crowd. Tsitsipas just blocks it out, fending off the break point with a crisp crosscourt forehand winner and reeling off two more astute points from deuce to maintain his advantage.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 3-6 6-3 2-1 MURRAY

It’s fair to say that was a must-win game for Muzza and he duly delivers. Is there to be another twist in this or will the higher ranked player see the job through now?

TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 3-6 6-3 2-0 MURRAY

Tsitsipas looks keen to get this done after what has been a huge scare so far. He consolidates with a rapid hold as Murray continues to bemoan the length of the Greek’s bathroom break.

BREAK! – TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 3-6 6-3 1-0 MURRAY

Sir Andy looks energised by the frustration of having to wait for Stefanos in-between sets and tries to involve the crowd as much as possible, It appears to work at 30-15 but Tsitsipas looks ice-cold out there and manages to bite back to claim an immediate break point. A lovely return helps him convert and the No.3 seed is ahead in the match for the first time since the very first game of the contest.

SET! – TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 3-6 6-3 MURRAY

We are heading into a decider. There’s no slip-up this time around as Stefanos punches the air after a crunching forehand breaches Muzza’s defences to belatedly conclude a set he was running away with.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 3-6 5-3 MURRAY

That’s typical Murray spirit right there. He gets caught out by two superb backhands from the Greek and faces set point. The Brit responds by luring an error long and forces another serve-out question with the hold from deuce. Any blip from the Greek now would surely set alarm bells ringing in his camp.

BREAK! – TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 3-6 5-2 MURRAY

It’s a long way back in this set and you wonder whether Muzza would be better channelling his energy on the decider. He doesn’t think that way though and tees up triple break point. Stef saves two but a wonderful crosscourt winner from the world number 112 snares a break back.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 3-6 5-1 MURRAY

Bagel avoided. Murray finds a big serve and a couple of probing forehands to edge to a hold to 30.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 3-6 5-0 MURRAY

It’s one-way traffic right now. Tsitsipas blitzes a backhand winner down the line on his way to a thumping love hold. The set is gone but Murray could do with a hold to avoid the bagel and ensure he’s serving first at the start of the fifth set.

BREAK! – TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 3-6 4-0 MURRAY

It’s looking very much like we are heading into a decider. Murray is showing some signs of fatigue and there are a few loose errors in there. He’s broken far too easily and Tsitsipas has a real cushion now.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 3-6 3-0 MURRAY

The Greek nails a crosscourt winner to consolidate from deuce after some sloppy points, including a pair of double faults, had given Murray a brief glimmer of hope.

BREAK! – TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 3-6 2-0 MURRAY

That’s a shocker from Murray. He looks in complete control at 40-15 but allows the Greek to sneak back in at deuce. A clever drop shot earns an unlikely break point and Murray implodes with a loose forehand wide.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 3-6 1-0 MURRAY

No obvious sign of any issues with Stef’s foot as he begins his bid to turn this match around with a solid hold to 30.

SET! – TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 3-6 MURRAY

That’s brilliant from the 2012 champion. He curses himself as an angled volley slaps into the net after picking up Tsitsipas’ attempted pass. A big forehand winner gets him back to 30-30 before a smart serve and volley combo surprises the Greek. Another rasping forehand seals the game and the set. He’s one away from a major upset.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 3-5 MURRAY

A routine hold almost turns ugly for Stef as Murray picks off a drop shot with a sweeping winner before showing the Greek how it is done to make 40-30. The number three seed resets and snares the game-clinching point to keep Murray honest. The Scot will now serve for the set.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 2-5 MURRAY

No such drama this time around. Murray keeps Tsitsipas at arm’s length and sweeps into the net to tuck away a volley and secure another hold to 30. He’s one away from a two-sets-to-one lead.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 2-4 MURRAY

That’s brutal serving. Tsitsipas has had quite a few service games like that. He marauds through a love hold and Murray finds himself back at that service line almost immediately.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 1-4 MURRAY

That is a ridiculous hold from Murray! He produces scintillating, clutch serving to bat away FOUR break points before finally coming through from deuce with a bewitching, improvised drop shot.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 1-3 MURRAY

The number three seed avoids a sense of déjà vu from the opening set where the double break effectively ended his chances and gets on the board to stay in touch.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 0-3 MURRAY

Sir Andy backs up the break with a highly competent hold.

BREAK! – TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 0-2 MURRAY

That’s just what the doctor ordered for Murray. He will be feeling a whole lot better now as he takes advantage of a real blip from the Greek to snare an immediate break.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 0-1 MURRAY

With the shoe drama hopefully behind him, Murray returns from the bath room break both players took to lean on his hefty serve and get off to a positive start in Set 3.

SET! – TSITSIPAS 2-6 7-6 MURRAY.

That’s so unfortunate for Murray. From looking good for a two-set lead he’s been pegged back. An untimely double fault at 7-7 gifts the No.3 seed a chance to serve it out and a big serve forces Muzza to return long. Tsitsipas is level after taking the TB 9-7 and Murray vents his anger at his team. #Shoegate.

TB LATEST

Murray secures the crucial mini break with an exceptional crosscourt lob to lead 5-3. He looks in charge on the next point but after blocking at the net, slips and Tsitsipas is able to pass him. However, the Scot corks a brutal forehand to claim two set points. The first is on his serve but after a lengthy rally he drags a backhand into the net. Tsitsipas saves the second with a crunching overhead after supreme defence from the veteran. It’s 6-6 and on we go!

TB LATEST

It’s 3-3 at the change of ends. The players exchange mini breaks before Murray is left ruing a forehand up the line into the net on the Greek’s serve after corking down an ace of his own. Tsitsipas gets great depth on a backhand but Murray levels with a delicate drop volley at the net.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 6-6 MURRAY

The Scot finds some important first serves but is pushed all the way as Tsitsipas turns defence into attack with a rasping forehand winner. The Greek then goes too big off the same wing and Muzza holds to 30 to force the TB.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 6-5 MURRAY

One last chance for Tsitsipas to tie this match via non-tie break means. He has a slight wobble and chucks in a double fault but puts away an overhead to crank up the heat on Murray once more.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 5-5 MURRAY

It’s a Jekyll and Hyde game from Stefanos. He looks almost serene and dominant from the baseline as he spells out incoming trouble for Murray at 0-30. The Greek then begins to unravel with some surprising misses despite the fine defence from Muzza. The world number three screams at himself after each point as the Brit storms back to reel off four points and get himself out of dodge.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 5-4 MURRAY

Finally Tsitsipas nudges down from Greek-god mode. Murray benefits from a couple of poor shot choices and suddenly has two break points. The world number 114 is almost too passive on the first but can do nothing on the second as Stef booms down a wide ace. The Greek does enough to edge the hold and still has that scoreboard advantage at a key point in the set.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 4-4 MURRAY

That’s too good from the 2012 champion. His serve has plenty of zip on it too. Mark Petchey was talking about how the Scot’s body was finally allowing him to fine-tune parts of his game after so much trouble with smaller injuries since his hip replacement. It’s looked good so far here.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 4-3 MURRAY

It’s so business-like from Tsitsipas. He is purring on serve and that first-serve percentage is sky-high in this set. He clocks up yet another love hold. Murray must be starting to get a little bit concerned that he’s not had much of a look-in for quite some time now.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 3-3 MURRAY

He needed that. After coming under the cosh on serve for quite some time, Murray rekindles that first-set mojo and follows Stef’s example with a quick-fire love hold.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 3-2 MURRAY

Blink and you’d have missed that. Tsitsipas powers through a third straight love hold in this set. He’s applying all of the pressure right now. Can Muzza keep denying him?

TSITSIPAS 2-6 2-2 MURRAY

Tsitsipas follows up a backhand winner down the line with a huge slice of luck when an attempt slams into the net and somehow bobbles over. Murray lets out a frustrated cry but staves off the two break points it created with a tremendous serve and a hefty forehand. He refuses to let it be the turning point and comes out on top in some lung-bursting exchanges from deuce to level matters.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 2-1 MURRAY

After enjoying a break-fest early doors, Murray is struggling to make any impact on the Tsitsipas serve. The No.3 seed cruises to a love hold and will still feel confident he can outlast Muzza here.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 1-1 MURRAY

Stefanos vents his frustration once more as Murray slaps a thunderous serve down the T to claw his way out of another tricky game.

TSITSIPAS 2-6 1-0 MURRAY

There’s no doubt Tsitsipas has moved up a few gears now. He nails a trio of first serves to rattle through a flurry of cheap points and makes a statement of intent with a love hold to kick off Set 2.

SET! – TSITSIPAS 2-6 MURRAY

What a first set of tennis from Andy Murray! The former world number one rolls back the years to dismantle a nervy-looking Tsitsipas in 42 minutes. The Greek considerably upped his level after going two breaks down but Murray got the job done in his third set point.

TSITSIPAS 2-5 MURRAY

That is much more like the player he was two sets up on Djokovic in the French Open final. Tsitsipas belatedly remembers he has a blistering serve and poses the serve-out question.

TSITSIPAS 1-5 MURRAY

This is vintage Murray. He’s looked completely in the zone. Once again he serves so efficiently to back up the double break. Tsitsipas and his team look worried but he will surely settle at some point soon.

BREAK! – TSITSIPAS 1-4 MURRAY

That is a shocker from Stef. He completely frames a simple overhead into the net and Murray has a double break!

TSITSIPAS 1-3 MURRAY

Sir Andy is flying right now. He consolidates with real authority. Tsitsipas with plenty to ponder at this juncture.

BREAK! – TSITSIPAS 1-2 MURRAY

Wow! That good start just turned into an excellent one. The Greek shanks a horrible backhand off court and it gifts Muzza a break to 15. The Brit is rolling back the years at the moment. Stefanos looks a tad uncomfortable so far.

TSITSIPAS 1-1 MURRAY

Some excellent serving sandwiches a delightfully subtle drop shot as Murray continues his positive start with a sweeping game to 15.

TSITSIPAS 1-0 MURRAY

Some excellent early hustle from Murray sees him battle back from 30-0 to force deuce. Tsitsipas has chances to finish the game earlier but the Scot darts in to pick-up a drop shot and drills a backhand the Greek blocks long. Eventually the No.3 seed puts a run together and clinches the hold with a sweeping forehand winner.

Murray v Tsitsipas - NOW

Tsitsipas won the toss and chose to serve first.

GAME, SET AND MATCH! – EVANS 6-3 6-7 6-4 6-1 MONTEIRO

It’s all over! Evo overcomes fatigue and a tricky Brazilian opponent to serve out a four-set victory in three hours and 34 minutes on Court 10. The Brit will meet Giron or Hoang next.

EVANS 6-3 6-7 6-4 5-1 MONTEIRO

Thiago avoids the bagel after digging deep at 30-30 and forces Evans to serve it out.

EVANS 6-3 6-7 6-4 5-0 MONTEIRO

It's cruise-control now and this tricky, hard-fought match has suddenly turned into a procession. Evo backs up the double break and is one game away from round two.

BREAK! – EVANS 6-3 6-7 6-4 4-0 MONTEIRO

Superb from Evans! He’s in complete control now and snares the double break. He’s got the insurance now and should see this through.

EVANS 6-3 6-7 6-4 3-0 MONTEIRO

The British No.1 consolidates and can see round two creeping up on his horizon.

BREAK! – EVANS 6-3 6-7 6-4 2-0 MONTEIRO

Fist pump time! Evo breaks and is in complete control right now.

RESULT - Stephens edges Keys in repeat of 2017 final

Konta OUT of US Open

EVANS 6-3 6-7 6-4 1-0 MONTEIRO

It’s not pretty but Evans opens Set 4 with a hold to 30. Monteiro slaps a loose forehand wide and will need to start making those again if he’s to deny the Brit a spot in round two.

SET! – EVANS 6-3 6-7 6-4 MONTEIRO

Awesome tennis from Evans! He unloads a stunning forehand winner to seal the third set in style. The Brit thought his chance had gone when he cannoned a forehand attempt up the line into the net with Monteiro seemingly stranded in the forecourt. The Brazilian was delighted to make deuce but coughed up a second opportunity when he was undone by a lob. Evo breaks to lead 2-1 and is now receiving treatment on foot blisters.

EVANS 6-3 6-7 5-4 MONTEIRO

There’s no doubt Evans wants this. He’s fatigued but looks to have accepted that and is less agitated. There’s still no dip as he motors through to crank up that scoreboard pressure. Monteiro must now serve to stay in the set.

EVANS 6-3 6-7 4-4 MONTEIRO

Close, but no cigar for Dan. His slice defence forces an error into the net for 0-30 and he conjures up a break point at 30-30 with another astute backhand. Monteiro lashes an ace down the T to make deuce and despite some real purpose from Evans, it’s the world number 93 who prevails.

EVANS 6-3 6-7 4-3 MONTEIRO

Thiago gets lucky with an opening point net cord to pose an early question but Evo hits back and then gets his own bit of fortune as the Brazilian leaves a slice and sees it drop in. The Brummie screams ‘feet!’ as his laboured movement contributes to a wide forehand but he stands firm to take the game to 30 with an accomplished backhand smash.

EVANS 6-3 6-7 3-3 MONTEIRO

No danger once again. Evans glides into the forecourt to try and change that at 40-15 down but proceeds to dump a very make-able volley into the net. All square.

EVANS 6-3 6-7 3-2 MONTEIRO

Is this the calm before the storm? Neither player is offering much resistance to the server so far. It could be they are conserving energy for the business end of the set as the points have clearly been shorter.

EVANS 6-3 6-7 2-2 MONTEIRO

Thiago waves the wand of a forehand and another simple but highly effective service game ends with a power-house crosscourt winner.

EVANS 6-3 6-7 2-1 MONTEIRO

It’s all rather routine in the opening stages of this set. Evans benefits from some loose returning from his opponent and nudges the board in his favour once more.

EVANS 6-3 6-7 1-1 MONTEIRO

Evans perhaps shows signs he’s not keen to keep going toe-to-toe from the baseline by mixing it up with an early drop shot. He’s suitable punished by the Brazilian who coolly draws level.

EVANS 6-3 6-7 1-0 MONTEIRO

Pundits and casual followers on the Twittersphere are suggesting Evans needed to win that set to progress to round two, but he comes out all guns blazing at the start of Set 3 and breezes through his opening service game.

SET! – EVANS 6-3 6-7 MONTEIRO

It’s one apiece! Evans can’t find the line with a crosscourt forehand and it’s the world number 93 who takes a rollercoaster breaker by an 8-6 scoreline.

TB LATEST

That’s a magnificent turnaround. Evo was 4-1 down but he rallies hard and levels at 4-4 with a scorching crosscourt forehand. The Brit then finds two big serves at 4-5 down to snare a set point but Monteiro’s big forehand does enough damage to keep us going at 6-6.

TB LATEST

It's one-way traffic early on as Monteiro storms into a 4-1 lead. Evo just about stays alive by outlasting the world number 93 in the final point before the change of ends to trail 4-2.

EVANS 6-3 6-6 MONTEIRO

Job done. Evans stays calm and takes us into the tie break.

EVANS 6-3 5-6 MONTEIRO

This time there’s no alarm bells for Monteiro. He blitzes through a routine hold and guarantees himself the minimum of a tie break. Plenty of pressure on a visibly fatiguing Evans now. The heat is clearly affecting him.

EVANS 6-3 5-5 MONTEIRO

Evans doesn’t have it all his own way but digs out a hold to 30 with a forehand winner that licks the top of the net on its way to the corner of Monteiro’s left wing.

EVANS 6-3 4-5 MONTEIRO

That’s a massive hold from Monteiro. He looked second best for much of that game as Evo surged into the net and cranked up the temperature at 15-30. The Brit then blew a very make-able return long but did manage to sneak a break point from deuce. However, Thiago was bold with his back against the wall and wriggled out of danger as Evo lashed a frustrated attempt up the line well wide.

EVANS 6-3 4-4 MONTEIRO

Parity! Evans backs up his break with a convincing hold to 15. The key point comes at 15-15 when the Brit somehow picks up a vicious return close to his feet with a sublime volley. Now, can he use the momentum to pinch this set?

BREAK! – EVANS 6-3 3-4 MONTEIRO

That is a HUGE roar from Evans. He adds a couple of aggressive fist pumps for good measure as he lures another error from the Brazilian to break at the third opportunity in the game. Monteiro allowed his level to dip for the first time in the set and the Brummie pounced, staying patient when a couple of chances went begging.

EVANS 6-3 2-4 MONTEIRO

It’s shaky from Evans but he manages to stay in touch as Monteiro fails to up the ante and make the most of two second serves from 30-30. The British number one threw down another double fault and dumped a volley on the stretch into the net as he struggles to find the consistency that saw him dominate the opener.

BREAK! – EVANS 6-3 1-3 MONTEIRO

The roars of delight from the Brazilian contingent watching in the stands is a painful sound for Evo. He produces clutch tennis to somehow fend off four break points but is his own worst enemy from there as a double fault and a miscued volley see him undone on the fifth.

EVANS 6-3 1-2 MONTEIRO

The previous two tussles between these men were hard-fought and pretty close. It’s looking like it could be a similar story here too. Monteiro is relishing the hot conditions and has definitely found anther gear since being put under the cosh in the final part of the opener. There’s no real look-in for Evo as the world number 93 closes out the hold with ease.

EVANS 6-3 1-1 MONTEIRO

That’s mental toughness right there from Evans. He can see Monteiro has stepped it up a level but refuses to budge despite losing a point he should have won for the Brazilian to force deuce. The roars from Thiago’s team don’t impress a frustrated Evo, but he retorts with a huge serve and manages to come through unscathed and get on the board.

EVANS 6-3 0-1 MONTEIRO

Thiago turns to his team and pumps his fist. It follows a big serve to conclude a hold to 15. It’s been a while since he enjoyed a dominant service game and it’s the ideal way to kick things off in Set 2.

SET! – EVANS 6-3 MONTEIRO

That’s how you serve out a set! Evans doesn’t falter as he surges through to serve out the opener to love and take it in 48 minutes.

BREAK! – EVANS 5-3 MONTEIRO

Evo pummels a backhand up the line and fist pumps with delight. It can only mean one thing – he’s finally got that break. The Brit’s slice approach and determination to get into the net reaps reward as a hurried forehand from the Brazilian flashes wide to cough up triple BP. The world No.93’s forehand power swats away one before a delightful crosscourt pass saves a second. But this time Evo refuses to be denied and he’ll serve for the set.

EVANS 4-3 MONTEIRO

A trio of big first serves do the heavy lifting for Evans as he canters through another tidy hold. The pressure is rising for Monteiro but can Evo find the breakthrough his first-set performance deserves?

EVANS 3-3 MONTEIRO

Frustration for Evans. He earns two more break points when Monteiro duffs a backhand volley into the net, but he just can’t convert. Credit to the Brazilian, who plays a bold point with a dart to the net to save the first before crunching a series of venomous forehands to breach the Brit’s defence via a crosscourt winner. The world number 93 duly digs out a scrappy hold and we are still all square.

EVANS 3-2 MONTEIRO

Dan is looking pretty sharp now. He shrugs off the minor disappointment of not breaking and comfortably eases through another hold to maintain the scoreboard advantage. Still early days in this match but plenty of positives from the British perspective so far.

EVANS 2-2 MONTEIRO

The British number one’s forehand is malfunctioning more than he’d like right now. He unleashes a fizzing return winner to make deuce before some slice defence lures Monteiro into lashing a forehand just long to cough up the first break point of the match. Evo can’t convert though and although he applies heat from deuce he can’t conjure up another opportunity and lets the Brazilian off the hook with a forehand wide.

EVANS 2-1 MONTEIRO

That’s more like it from Evans. He slams down his first ace of the contest to take it to 15. He had much more service rhythm in that game.

EVANS 1-1 MONTEIRO

No such rust for the Brazilian as he cruises through his first service game of the contest with the minimum of fuss.

EVANS 1-0 MONTEIRO

It’s a tricky opener for Evans as he hits back from 15-30 before being tested again at deuce. A splendid overhead volley off the backhand clinches the hard-fought hold and should give him a boost after some first serve wobbles.

H2H

Evans leads the match-up 2-0 having beaten Monteiro in two tight, three-set contests in Sydney and Barcelona back in 2017.

It is time!

The 2021 US Open is set to get underway imminently. We’ll be focusing on the Brits on Day 1 with 2012 champion Andy Murray headlining against No.3 seed Stefanos Tsitsipas later. They are due second on court at the Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Right now, we’re heading to Court 10 where most of the GB action will take place today. We’ve got Dan Evans, Johanna Konta, Heather Watson and Cam Norrie all featuring – but first, it’s all about Evo!
The British No.1 and No.24 seed meets a Brazilian ranked number 93 in the world in the shape of Thiago Monteiro.

Hello!

Welcome to LIVE coverage from the opening day at the US Open. We'll have live updates from around the courts, with former champion Sloane Stephens opening up Arthur Ashe Stadium, the main showcourt, against fellow American Madison Keys. But there's loads more on Day 1, like...

Top match

While there is almost certainly heartbreak on the horizon, the biggest match of the day is between Stefanos Tstitsipas and Andy Murray.
Murray continues his two-year attempt to establish himself back as a regular on the professional circuit, and appears to be in the best shape of his career since his hip surgery. However, despite a couple of wins over higher-profile players, it is hard to see past Tsitsipas, who may consider himself favourite for the overall tournament.

‘Going to be tough’ – Why hard-court king Djokovic will be pushed at US Open

Potential upset

Marie Bouzkova has never been past the first round at the US Open, and never past the second round at any Grand Slam event. However, and while it may seem cruel to pick out Naomi Osaka given the pressure she finds herself under because of her honesty, the fact remains that the Japanese player has struggled ever since her dramatic exit at the French Open earlier this year.

Brit watch

Aside from Andy Murray, there are plenty of Britons in the first round. There's Cameron Norrie against Spain's Carlos Alcaraz and Dan Evans against Brazil's Thiago Monteiro in the men's side of the draw. On the women's side, Harriet Dart will face Caroline Garcia, Kaja Juvan is Heather Watson's opponent, and Kristina Mladenovic stands in the way of Jo Konta.

Next-gen watch

Carlos Alcaraz impressed on his Wimbledon debut and will have to take on Cameron Norrie, seeded 26th. Francis Tiafoe looks to make good on his early promise against non-boxer Christopher Eubanks, and fellow American Coco Gauff is in action against Poland's Magda Linette.
