Things open up for Andy Murray a bit now, don't they? Rafa Nadal out. Second seed Wawrinka out.

Third seed Milos Raonic is up next on Centre Court against Richard Gasquet. That should be decent, and you can watch that using the Live Coverage tab up at the top.

But that's it in terms of our live text commentary. I'm off for a nap, and will probably just see Big Kev repeatedly smashing down aces as soon as I close my eyes.

John Lloyd

1977 Australian Open runner-up on BBC Two

"I don't think Stan Wawrinka has played anyone who has gone after his second serve so successfully. Kevin Anderson was magnificent in all departments of his game."

Andrew Castle

BBC tennis commentator

"Kevin Anderson produced all the best tennis when the chips were down and deserved his win."

'My serve was a big plus'

Kevin Anderson on BBC Two: "It was a terrific match for me. He's a terrific player so it means a lot to me and to do on such a great court makes it extra special.

"My serve was a big plus right from the beginning. Stan also has a good serve but I was able to return pretty well."

Yeah, your service was decent Big Kev. Just the 22 aces buddy.

Wawrinka 6-7 (4-7) 6-7 (11-13) Anderson

Anderson has announced himself ahead of Wimbledon though. Who would want to play him and that thunderous serve?

Game, set and match

Wawrinka 6-7 (4-7) 6-7 (11-13) Anderson

How do you think Anderson won it? If you guessed 'ace', you'd be very much correct.

Big Kev was unplayable today. Wawrinka shouldn't take too much negativity from this. But regardless, a French Open winner 11 days ago - now out in the second round of Queen's.

Neither player hangs around on the court long, the bags are on the shoulders and they're off.

Anderson's mum and wife are very happy.

Oh Stan. All the time in the world for a winner but he gets it horribly wrong. We're back to parity.

And now he's gone wide. Match point.

Set point

*Wawrinka 6-7 (4-7) 6-6 (11-10) Anderson

It's just whoever blinks first now. But Wawrinka breaks.

Stan is superb under pressure. Anderson can only get his frame to the serve. This is the second round of Queen's - you'd think it was a Grand Slam final the way they're battling.

Wawrinka puts down another doozy. Set point.

Match point

Wawrinka 6-7 (4-7) 6-6 (8-9) Anderson*

Anderson's ace grazes the line and Wawrinka is out of challenges. Another ace. Ridiculous.

Set point

Wawrinka 6-7 (4-7) 6-6 (8-7) Anderson*

Line judge calls foul serve, then corrects himself. Ace for Anderson. Match point.

But Stan saves it with a deep pressure shot to go 7-7. And Anderson puts a return into the net. Great stuff this.

Wawrinka 6-7 (4-7) 6-6 (6-6) Anderson*

Wawrinka looks on

Wawrinka is alive. Anderson can't return the passing shot.

Match point

Wawrinka 6-7 (4-7) 6-6 (5-6) Anderson*

Wawrinka holds on his first attempt. And produces a cracking serve to 5-6. Still match point though.

Match point

*Wawrinka 6-7 (4-7) 6-6 (3-6) Anderson

Wawrinka faces a second serve and its a huge ne, Stan can only put it into the net. Serve and volley gives him three match points.

Wawrinka 6-7 (4-7) 6-6 (3-4) Anderson*

Now Stan's angry. But with himself. His backhand is way too deep. He swings his racquet in disgust. And Anderson has the break.

It's just the one though, as Wawrinka holds on his second point with serve.

*Wawrinka 6-7 (4-7) 6-6 (2-3) Anderson

Anderson relinquishes the mini break by going long after a dabbed return from Wawrinka. Anderson's angry though and hits an unstoppable ace.

Wawrinka 6-7 (4-7) 6-6 (1-2) Anderson*

Anderson holds on the first point of the tie-break. And then produces a hammer of a backhand down the line, it's remarkable. He hits a return long though.

Tie-break in second set

If Big Kev pulls this off, I wouldn't call it a shock, but it's definitely a surprise. Anderson is 17th in the world. Wawrinka is fourth, and the French Open champion.

Stan marches to 30-0, but double faults. Bad timing Stan. Anderson let's him off, slapping a forehand wide and Wawrinka nails an ace. We go to tie-break. Nine aces for Stan. Eighteen for Big Kev.

*Wawrinka 6-7 (4-7) 5-6 Anderson

Bosh. Anderson ace. Then we're treated to a tasty rally, we haven't seen many of them. Wawrinka finishes it by stepping into the net.

A Stan return is on the ankles of Anderson, who can't get it back. But we're level again as the Swiss puts a return into the tape.

Bosh. Anderson ace (I copy and pasted that).

But we go to deuce, as Anderson finds the net. Stan returns long and then returns wide. Anderson battles to hold.

Wawrinka 6-7 (4-7) 5-5 Anderson*

Wawrinka serving to stay in the match. And a forehand down the line gets him underway. But Anderson hits two points to smell a break point.

An Anderson backhand is long though, and so is another. Oh but a sumptuous cross-court backhand puts Anderson at deuce.

"Come on!" hollers Wawrinka when Anderson goes long. A forehand with lashings of top spin sees the Swiss home. He'll breathe a sigh of relief.

Murray loses

Piers Newbery

BBC Sport at Queen's

"After battling their way to a tie-break, Andy Murray and Dom Inglot offer up a break point apiece to fall 5-0 behind. It's too much of a deficit and Bruno Soares and Alexander Peya win 6-4 7-6. There were some encouraging signs for a potential British Davis Cup pairing though, and Murray can now turn his attention back to singles."

*Wawrinka 6-7 (4-7) 4-5 Anderson

Anderson is the Duracell Bunny of big serves. Over and over and over again.

There's a second-serve ace down the middle - ridiculous.

A few cheers on Centre Court as Wawrinka gets a return winner. It's a rare sight. Normal service (pun intended) is resumed though - ace. Anderson has 16 of those.

Wawrinka 6-7 (4-7) 4-4 Anderson*

Meanwhile, Wawrinka holds to level this up at 4-4. I smell another tie-break, which will be right up Anderson's alley.

Murray loses in doubles

Andy Murray and partner Dominic Inglot have lost a second-set tie-break, and the match, with Alexander Peya and Bruno Soares winning 6-4 7-6.

Doubles trouble

Piers Newbery

BBC Sport at Queen's

"Drama on Court one as Peya fails to serve out the match, donating three double faults in the wind, and Andy Murray and Dominic Inglot earn a set point only for Soares to punch away a volley. Second set tie-break, the Brits must win it."

*Wawrinka 6-7 (4-7) 3-4 Anderson

The clouds are making way to sparkling sunshine and crystal blue skies at Queen's. It makes the beautiful tennis even prettier.

Wawrinka manages to engage Anderson in a rally on the big man's serve, but hits the pesky net. Normal service resumes - Anderson rockets down a few big boy serves to hold.

Wawrinka 6-7 (4-7) 3-3 Anderson*

Wawrinka shows he has an ace or two up his sleeve. Well, just one, specifically, That backhand is at its silky best, firing down the line.

Speaking of backhands down the line, Anderson nonchalantly returns a serve with expert poise for a winner. And suddenly we have a break point. Stan relies on his serve to go to deuce. Love the forehand that comes up next, Anderson has no chance. And what a confident second serve that is, right into Anderson, who can't deal with it.

*Wawrinka 6-7 (4-7) 2-3 Anderson

Anderson is basically one of those machines that sends down serves at you in training. Like a metronome.

Wawrinka gives himself a mouthful after failing to return. It's pretty frustrating for the Swiss - what can he do? The first serve is impossible to deal with and he rarely sees a second. Game Anderson.

Wawrinka 6-7 (4-7) 2-2 Anderson*

Wawrinka is having to fight for this one. Anderson twice takes him to deuce. A superb passing backhand gives the Swiss advantage and an inch perfect ace gives him the game.

*Wawrinka 6-7 (4-7) 1-2 Anderson

A quickie from Anderson. Nothing to see here.

*Wawrinka 6-7 (4-7) 1-2 Anderson

General view at Queen's

It's blowy at Queen's. You can hear the wind rustling the microphones. The weather was much better yesterday.

And at the moment, Anderson is slightly better than Wawrinka. His quality is summed up by a reflex volley at the net, it's startling instincts from the South African. A more delicate drop shot goes awry, but Wawrinka fails to return a serve and Anderson holds.

Over at the doubles...

Piers Newbery

BBC Sport at Queen's

"Dominic Inglot lets out a huge roar after a volley saves break point and effectively keeps the match alive. Peya and Soares were pushing for the double break in the second set but the Brits cling on - despite the first foot fault against Andy Murray in living memory. He looked suitably disgusted. Murray and Inglot trail 6-4 4-3."

Wawrinka 6-7 (4-7) 1-1 Anderson*

Anderson has got 77% of his first serves in - it was as high as 83% at one point. It's remarkable that Wawrinka has hung on to his coattails.

The umpire calls a Wawrinka shot out - he's correct. But Wawrinka goes to 40-30 by coming in to put away a return, and then sends in a tremendous second serve right on the line.

*Wawrinka 6-7 (4-7) 0-1 Anderson

John Inverdale is talking to Kevin Anderson's mum. It's difficult to describe the chemistry the pair have.

Oh, and now Inverdale has a world exclusive. He's asked Jeremy Clarkson about his successor on Top Gear, Chris Evans. "I wish him the very best of luck," says Clarkson.

Back on the green stuff, Wawrinka tries the kind of backhand lob you really want to see drop in - it doesn't. Anderson crashes down an ace. And another. Game Big Kev.

Anderson wins first set

Wawrinka 6-7 (4-7) Anderson

Kevin Anderson

Anderson pushes back Wawrinka with the deepest of volleys, and it wins him the point. Then Wawrinka is off target. First set to Big Kev.

Wawrinka 6-6 (4-5) Anderson*

Fightback on? Wawrinka rattles off two quick points on serve.

*Wawrinka 6-6 (2-5) Anderson

Stan Wawrinka

A wayward forehand from Wawrinka and he's really under pressure. Anderson challenges the out call on his first serve. No dice. And Stan finally breaks back as Anderson hits the net.

Wawrinka 6-6 (1-4) Anderson*

Stan drops another, but finally gets on the board with a smash.

*Wawrinka 6-6 (0-3) Anderson

Wawrinka bashes his racquet on the grass after missing a forehand down the line. He's dropped a mini break in the tie-break.

Anderson snaffles his two serves, and looks very tidy with it.

First set goes to tie-break

Wawrinka 6-6 Anderson

Have I mentioned Big Kev's big serve? He sends one right down the middle to kick off the game.

Wawrinka gets a rare go at a second serve and scores off it. Now Anderson has gone long and there's two set points...

The South African saves the first with a rare serve and volley - risky that, fair play to him. He goes for it again, but Wawrinka hits the net anyway. Deuce.

Now a 112mph second serve. Have some of that. Anderson escapes unscathed.
