Bye for now

Right, Juan Martin del Potro is knocking up ahead of his match against big bad John Isner. 

Will no-one think of the tennis balls? They have just been given a bruising by Milos Raonic and Nick Kyrgios and now they have to put up with this.

We are going to close the live text for the day here though.

You can continue to watch via the BBC Two coverage at the top of this page or keep across the score on our live scores page.

Is this going to be a little awkward? Jeremy Clarkson who, you may have heard, left the BBC at the end of his contract in March last year is going to be interviewed by John Inverdale on BBC Two.

Nope, it turns out.

All very pally as Clarkson plugs his new venture on Amazon and offers his thoughts on Andy Murray.

"I admire the way that he does not court public opinion. he does not do that smiley, PRy, Instgram thing and I like that," he says.

A bit like Jeremy himself.

Hands-on coaching

"You couldn't miss him, He has been on the court the whole time. I wanted to hit some righties, but he is always there!, " said Milos Raonic of his coach John McEnroe.

"I think that I played Jiri Vesely on the clay in the French Open a couple of years ago. He has had some good wins this year and it will be a tough match."

Game, set and match Raonic

Raonic 6-7 (5-7) 6-4 6-3 Kyrgios

The third seed survives a scare, rediscovering his serve just in time at 15-40 to blast his way back to deuce and then make good his escape into the second round.

Raonic meets Jiri Vesely next.

Raonic breaks

*Raonic 6-7 (5-7 ) 6-4 5-3 Kyrgios

Oh Nick.

The Australian duffs down two successive double faults to hand Milos Raonic a break.

The Canadian did not have to play another shot from 15-30 up in the game.

Raonic to serve for the set next. And he doesn't miss many.

Game, set and match Mathieu

Evans 6-7 (8-10) 7-6 (8-6) 3-6 Mathieu

Dan Evans has fought the good fight, but he is finally undone by world number 61 Paul-Henri Mathieu.

Mathieu will play Kyle Edmund in the second round.

Raonic 6-7 (5-7) 6-4 4-4 *Kyrgios

John McEnroe, who has been recruited to Milos Raonic's entourage for the grass season, is courtside.

The American legend get up to remove a layer of clothing, giving us a glimpse of his of a tattoo wrapped around his bicep.

His man sends down a service bomb to level up the scoreboard once again.

Mathieu breaks

Evans 6-7 (8-10) 7-6 (8-6) 3-5 *Mathieu


Paul-Henri Mathieu breaks the Dan Evans serve at the business end of the deciding set.

He will serve for the match and a second-round meeting with Kyle Edmund next.

Raonic 6-7 (5-7 ) 6-4 3-3 *Kyrgios

It is like watching Godzilla and King Kong tearing through the Tokyo skyline out there.

Two giant men pelting down service meteors to keep the scoreboard ticking along.

*Evans 6-7 (8-10) 7-6 (8-6) 3-4 Mathieu

Piers Newbery

BBC Sport at Queen's Club

"It’s standing room only over on Court One as Dan Evans attempts to make it four Britons in the second round. This has prompted much head scratching in the media centre to recall a time of similar success. 

"Apparently Andy Murray, Tim Henman, Greg Rusedski and Jamie Delgado all won first--round matches in 2005 - although in those days the tournament was a 64-draw, as opposed to the current field of 32.

"So Evans has the nation on the verge of a last-16 landmark, if you're still with me..."

*Raonic 6-7 (5-7) 6-4 1-2 Kyrgios

Short-tempered television presenter Jeremy Clarkson is in the posh seats.

He is in prime position to see Nick Kyrgios face down a break point to hold serve.

*Evans 6-7 (8-10) 7-6 (8-6) 1-2 Mathieu

Over on Court One, you still can't squeeze a cigarette paper between Dan Evans and Paul-Henri Mathieu,

Dan Evans

*Raonic 6-7 (5-7) 6-4 0-1 Kyrgios

Nick Kyrgios pulls his serve out of the fire from deuce in the opening game of the third set.

The Australian is already deep in dialogue with his players' box.

Raonic 6-7 (5-7) 6-4 Kyrgios

Out on the main stage now are third seed Milos Raonic and Australian bag of tricks Nick Kyrgios.

The pair shared the first two sets of their match last night, before the fading light forced them back to the changing rooms.

Anyone's from here.

Evans 6-7 (8-10) 7-6 (8-6) *Mathieu

Dan Evans and Henri-Paul Mathieu are still going at it hammer and tongs.

The Briton has come out of the second-set tie-break victorious, winning the shoot-out 8-6 to send us into a decider.

If he wins the third set, he will play Kyle Edmund in a second all-British second-round match.

Kyle Edmund: "It was the first time I have played on this court. The home support I really like. You never get to experience it throughout the year and it is great to come home and have it in your corner.

"I thought I had a mental lapse in the back end of the second set but I really got my game on court in the third set.

"Training with Andy Murray has been great. You speak to him and get tips but it is also watching him and seeing his intensity in training and his professionalism off court. He deserves every success he gets."

Game, set and match Edmund

Edmund 6-4 3-6 6-1 Simon

Kyle Edmund whips away a backhand across court to seal one - perhaps the - biggest wins of his career.

That was a very competent performance, and he was helped to victory by Gilles Simon committing final-set hari-kare.

Edmund breaks

*Edmund 6-4 3-6 5-1 Simon

Gilles Simon crumbling like chalkdust.

The Frenchman's head's gone and he folds out on the first of two break points at 15-40, wandering tamely to the net and watching a forehand flash past him for a winner.

Edmund to serve for the match next.

Evans 6-7 (8-10) 6-5 *Mathieu

Dan Evans and Paul-Henri Mathieu are involved in a real ding-donger of a match on Court One.

It is very tightly matched as they tip-toe towards a second-set tie-break.

Edmund holds

Edmund 6-4 3-6 4-1 *Simon

Kyle Edmund sees out a service game from a spot of 30-30 bother.

Gilles Simon by the way has got a nasty case of the service yips. The Frenchman spends a couple of minutes trying to tweak his ball toss before opening serving on the next game.

Edmund breaks

*Edmund 6-4 3-6 3-1 Simon

Gilles Simon struggling to get his bearings after the rain delay. Kyle Edmund is well used to the patchy British weather and takes advantage with a smash-and-grab raid on the Frenchman's serve.

A big couple of games sandwiching that 20-minute rain delay.

Handshakes not hugs

Andy Murray's BBC Sport column is freshly up on the website.

He lifts the lid on how he and coach Ivan Lendl work together, revealing the not-entirely-surprising news that Lendl "is more of a handshake than a hug guy."

Brother Jamie and doubles partner Bruno Soares are certainly feeling the ripples of the Lendl effect. 

That is going to be an easy box to mark on your Wimbledon bingo card.

Just ordered my Thai takeaway decisively with the minimum of fuss. #thelendleffect

Feel like I'm playing better already because Lendl is back w Andy that's Jamie's brother, that is my partner. #thelendleffect

Players back on court

Edmund 6-4 3-6 2-1 *Simon

Kyle Edmund and Gilles Simon stride back onto court after a 20-minute delay.

They are going to have a quick three-minute pitter-patter knock-up to loosen off the limbs before getting going.

Play suspended

The net is bring pulled tight and upright once again.

We are going to have play back on shortly.

In the meantime, worth flagging up one celebrity guest at Queen's today.

Former Leeds and Aston Villa manager David O'Leary - last seen pocketing a £3.4m pay-off from Dubai club Al-Alhi in 2013 - is courtside.

It was nearly time to send someone round his house to check on him.

Play suspended

Sue Barker has just explained the curious stand-off that is taking place at Queen's Club.

The players are off, the net is down, but the covers have not been pulled across the court.

Why not with the rain spotting down lightly?

Well, apparently the court gets greasy when covered as it retains moisture. At the moment it is a net gain to leave it exposed to the elements.

Play suspended

Evans 6-7 (8-10) 5-4 *Mathieu

And what a time for the elements to intervene on Court One.

Dan Evans is at deuce on the Paul-Henri Mathieu serve, just two points away from the second set, when play is suspended.

Play suspended

Edmund 6-4 3-6 2-1 *Simon

A spot of rain, a quick word in the ear of the umpire and suddenly the players are hustled back to the dressing room.

The word is that this spitting and spotting is going to turn into a full-fledged drenching.

The net is down and the court coverers are ready to cloak the court.

Edmund saves three break points, holds

Edmund 6-4 3-6 2-1 *Simon

That was big.

Kyle Edmund claws his way back from three break points and six feet under to save his serve.

That was a Thunderbirds-level of rescue.

*Edmund 6-4 3-6 1-1 Simon

Kyle Edmund and Gilles Simon going toe-to-toe up the home straight.

Simon soaking up the punishment from behind the baseline, Edmund flinging the kitchen sink at him.

Irresistible force meets immovable object.

Who will blink first?

Kyle Edmund

Game and second set Simon

*Edmund 6-4 3-6 Simon

Kyle Edmund won the first point, took Gilles Simon to 30-30, but he could not get the final word in the set.

We are into a one-set shoot-out decider.

Evans breaks back

*Evans 6-7 (8-10) 2-2 Mathieu

Dan Evans is back in the room.

The British number four levels up the second set with a break in the fourth game.

Simon to serve for the set

Edmund 6-4 3-5 S*imon

Gilles Simon to serve for the second set...

Ooop. The Frenchman has lost the first point as Kyle Edmund gets a hefty and helpful nick off the net cord.

Mathieu breaks

Evans 6-7 (8-10) 1-2 *Mathieu

Paul-Henri Mathieu edges ahead in the second set.

Dan Evans is clinging onto coattails a bit here.

Simon breaks

Edmund 6-4 2-4 *Simon

Gilles Simon snatches Kyle Edmund's serve as the Briton's touch deserts him at the net.

*Edmund 6-4 2-3 Simon

Eighth seed Gilles Simon is starting to pick up the ball.

He thumps a winner down the line to hold serve.

Kyle Edmund's best chance of getting this done is to win in two you feel. If Simon levels the match, he will be favourite for the decider. 

Game and first set Mathieu

*Evans 6-7 (8-10) Mathieu

Dan Evans is left looking at the ugly end of the scoreline after losing a titanic tie-break tug of war.

Simon breaks

Edmund 6-4 1-1 *Simon

Beating the world number 18 would be the biggest win of Kyle Edmund's year by some distance.

Martin Klizan (43 in the world) Jiri Vesely (55) and Lukas Rosol (61) are his best victories so far in 2016.

But he is going to have to work if he is to add Simon's name to that list. The Frenchman presses hard and breaks serve, helped to the final point by another Edmund slip. 

Edmund breaks

*Edmund 6-4 1-0 Simon

Gilles Simon is down in the dumps.

He looks sluggish in movement, soft in shot and as though his mind is anywhere but Queen's Club.

Kyle Edmund breaks again and, if he can keep this up, will have a notable scalp for the mantelpiece.


Evans 6-6 *Mathieu

Dan Evans is indeed heading for a tie-break in his first-round meeting with Paul-Henri Mathieu.

Game and first set Edmund

Edmund 6-4 *Simon

Not a wobble, not a quiver.

Kyle Edmund takes the first set with room to spare and steady nerves.
