Right then, time for us to say farewell. Don't forget you can keep tabs on Naomi Broady's match at Birmingham here.

And we'll be back at Queen's tomorrow with live TV and online coverage. Full deets here. Cheerio!

Tuesday's action

Another decent day in prospect at Queen's tomorrow. Here's who you can keep tabs on. You might want to pay particular attention to the third match on Centre...


*Edmund 6-7 (4-7) 6-4 4-6 Shapovalov

Canada teenager Denis Shapovalov after beating British number two Kyle Edmund at Queen's: "This is definitely one of the biggest wins of my career. Kyle is an incredible player so I have amazing feelings right now."

On moving on from his previous meeting with Edmund when he was disqualified after accidentally hitting the umpire with the ball: "I don't think I'll ever forget about it but I think I've moved on. This was a different match. And it wasn't in my head."

Game, set and match - Shapovalov

Edmund 6-7 (4-7) 6-4 4-6 Shapovalov

Edmund saves two match points... but not the third. The British number two shanks a forehand return and that pretty much sums up a stinker of a game.

Shapovalov looks up to the clear London sky, roars in delight and then skips towards the net in celebration. That's the biggest win of the 18-year-old world number 193's career.

*Edmund 6-7 (4-7) 6-4 4-5 Shapovalov

What's happened here?! In the blink of an eye, Edmund is 0-40 down after a double fault. Three match points for Denis Shapovalov...

*Cornet 3-3 Broady

Well, well, well. Naomi Broady is back level. After losing the first three games, the British number two uses the momentum of her first hold to break back in the next game.

*Edmund 6-7 (4-7) 6-4 4-5 Shapovalov

"C'mon Kyle!" A few roars of encouragement from the Queen's crowd as home hope Edmund moves to 40-30 on Shapovalov's serve at 4-4. Can he force deuce?

Shapovalov keeps him behind the baseline, Edmund blinking first when he wallops a forehand long. Shapovalov cheers, fist-pumping at his box.

*Edmund 6-7 (4-7) 6-4 3-4 Shapovalov

Two more games, two more holds. These two aren't giving anything away. Teenage Canadian Shapovalov is keeping his cool, heaping the pressure back on to the Briton. And then he responds by doing the same. Who is going to crack first?

*Cornet 3-1 Broady

How have we gone this long without an update from Birmingham? I'm not sure. Sorry Naomi Broady fans. I've not even had time to go for a cup of tea, so I can't blame that.

Anyway... British number two Broady, who has moved up to 111th in the world, is taking on France's Alize Cornet.

The world number 31, as you can tell by her ranking, has decent pedigree and reached the last 16 at Roland Garros recently.

She shows her talent by winning the first three games before Broady rattles off a quick hold to get her side of the scoreboard ticking.

*Edmund 6-7 (4-7) 6-4 2-3 Shapovalov

Phew! Kyle Edmund hangs on to his serve. Denis Shapovalov puts the Briton under pressure, taking him to deuce. But the 22-year-old Yorkshireman uses all of his experience - which despite his young age is considerably more than the teenager opposite him - to hold.

Shapovalov does the same, then munches a banana at the changeover for an energy boost. Always works for me when I'm playing 6-a-side.

*denotes next server

Edmund 6-7 (4-7) 6-4 1-2 Shapovalov

Denis Shapovalov made a complete mess of his opening service game in the second set. No such luck for Kyle Edmund at the start of the decider. The young Canadian starts off with a ace, going on to hold before trading a couple more with the British number two.

Not a cloud in the west London sky, sun still beating down, beads of sweat still dripping down plenty of foreheads.

Many of those in the stands are rehydrating with plastic cups full of everyone's favourite fruit-based, summer liqueur.

Back in time...

Edmund wins second set

Edmund 6-7 (4-7) 6-4 Shapovalov

One shocker of a game from Denis Shapovalov is the only difference between him and Kyle Edmund in this second set.

The Canadian lost his serve in the opening game - and he's been punished.

Edmund serves out for the set, Shapovalov gives himself hope with a ripper of a winner for 15-0.

But Edmund keeps his cool, doesn't press the panic button, powering back to win the game and the set.

A decider!

At least Box Office (Kyrgios' nickname from pal Andy Murray) has raked in plenty of cash. Bit pricey in the Dog and Fox from what I remember...

Dog & Fox beckons for Kyrgios

Piers Newbery

BBC Sport

Nick Kyrgios has had an eventful afternoon, withdrawing from his opening match against Donald Young after a heavy fall aggravated a hip problem, then visiting the doctor and finally the media. Understandably low after another injury blow, the Aussie still could not resist a wisecrack. Asked for his plans in the coming days, he replied with a smile: "Dog & Fox."

Wimbledon Village's best known pub had better stock up on isotonic sports drinks.

Edmund 6-7 (4-7) 4-3 Shapovalov

Kyle Edmund still has his nose out in front in his opening match at Queen's. But not by much. A couple of holds will take this one into a decider for the British number two.

Game, set and match - Svitolina

Watson 2-6 7-5 3-6 Svitolina

Heather Watson saves one match point... and then a second! The British number two drags Svitolina out wide and then whacks down a ferocious forehand.


But Watto lets Svitolina off the hook on her second serve, bringing up a third match point for the Ukrainian.

This time she has got it! Watson drags an inside-out forehand into the tramlines and it is all over.

A valiant effort from the British wildcard against the world number five, nevertheless. Something to build on ahead of Wimbledon? Let's hope so.

Watson 2-6 7-5 3-5 Svitolina*

An excellent hold from Heather Watson. But she will need another one. And a break sandwiched in-between. World number five Elina Svitolina serves for the match...

*Watson 2-6 7-5 2-5 Svitolina

Heather Watson is clinging on by her perfectly-manicured fingernails. With holds swapped, Svitolina is one more break away from the match.

Heather starts with a thumping ace down the middle...

*Edmund 6-7 (4-7) 2-1 Shapovalov

Early breakthrough for Kyle Edmund. The 22-year-old Yorkshireman nabs his Canadian opponent's serve in the opening game of the second set, then takes a good look at it again in the third.

This time, Shapovalov hangs on.

* denotes next server

Svitolina breaks

Watson 2-6 7-5 1-3 Svitolina*

Ah. I think this is an example of 'commentator's curse'. Within seconds of pressing publish, Heather Watson lost her serve. The Brit clunks a cross-court forehand into the tramlines on break point, giving the second seed some breathing space.

Watson 2-6 7-5 1-2 Svitolina

What of Watto? Over in Birmingham, the British number two (who has slipped out of the top 100 remember) is more than holding her own against the FIFTH best player in the world.

Still even steven in the decider...

Quick day at Queen's

Piers Newbery

BBC Sport at Queen's Club

The day one programme has rattled though after two straight-set matches followed by Kyrgios's retirement, but we could be in for some longer evenings at Queen's this year. The thumping great new north stand, which now towers over the entrance to the site, means nearly 10,000 people can be packed into Centre Court. It also means longer queues to get in, and longer beaks between matches as more spectators head out for refreshment. Fortunately, everyone seem very focused when it comes to refreshment.

Shapovalov takes first set

Edmund 6-7 (4-7) Shapovalov

Three set points for Denis Shapovalov - and the first two are on his serve.

One... is wiped out as Kyle Edmund's winds up his ferocious forehand and leaves the Canadian beaten.

Two... Edmund totally miscues a forehand return and Shapovalov yelps in delight.

Edmund must do this in three if he is going to win it...

Edmund 6-6 (1-4) Shapovalov

Tie-break town. Denis Shapovalov has the Queen's crowd purring with a wonderful backhand pass that Britian's Kyle Edmund does not even have time to waft at.

A double break for the Canadian in the tie-break...

Watson wins second set

Watson 2-6 7-5 Svitolina

Oh hello! Heather Watson has only gone and nabbed Elina Svitolina's serve. The Briton roars as she moves within a hold of the second set, then uses that momentum surge to hold and level the match. On we go!

Edmund 6-5 Shapovalov*

Still these two continue to trade holds as quickly as primary school kids traded football stickers in the 1990s.

Edmund whacks an ace down the middle to seal his service game again. This one looks to be heading to a tie-break. Unless...

Watson 2-6 5-5 Svitolina*

Svitolina holds, Heather holds. A much tougher task for the Briton, who knows she has no room for error with the Ukrainian only a game away from the match.

Edmund 5-4 Shapovalov*

Denis Shapovalov was the Wimbledon champion last year. Boys' champion, of course. So he has serious potential.

He clocks up a break point for the first time in this opening set at Queen's, Edmund batters down a 107mph second serve to save it.

A break will do very nicely for Edmund now...

* denotes next server

Watson 2-6 4-4 Svitolina*

British number two Heather Watson has steadied the ship against world number five Elina Svitolina in Birmingham.

Watson has tumbled out of the top 100 after a tough year, but there are plenty of positives for the Guernsey girl to take from this second set.

Can she nab a break?

Edmund 4-3 Shapovalov*

Now then. A bit of pressure on the Denis Shapovalov serve. A stray forehand from the Canadian lands in the tramlines... deuce.

But Kyle Edmund's hopes are dashed almost as quickly as they arrive. Long-haired leftie Shapovalov (he's got the haircut of an Nirvana roadie) changes tack, going out wide with a 120mph serve. Ace.

Over to you Kyle... the Brit's serve is put under the microscope, but he digs deep to hold again.

Edmund starts strongly


Kyle Edmund

Kyle Edmund is racing through his service games against Canada's Denis Shapovalov. The British number two is having no problems with the ball in hand, holding to love for the second time in the early stages of this first-round match at Queen's.

He's not been caught out by this earlier-than-expected start. Remember, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Grigor Dimitrov raced through their opening matches before Nick Kyrgios pulled out through injury.

Still on serve, Edmund leading 3-2...

All eyes on the tennis


The last meeting between Britain's Kyle Edmund and Canadian Denis Shapovalov created headlines all over the world.

But not for the tennis.

But because Shapovalov whacked the ball in anger as the Davis Cup tie was slipping away from his grasp... clocking umpire Arnaud Gabas in the eye. Ouch.

Now the pair are back on court together for their first-round match at Queen's. Edmund and Shapovalov, that is.

Today's umpire Ali Nili is wearing shades. Perhaps for double protection...

The Ukraine player has taken the first set 6-2 in 45 minutes. Can the British number three turn it around?
