Murray* 2-1 Sousa (1-1)

Sousa holds after Murray nets with a forehand return...

Murray 2-0 Sousa* (1-1)

Madison Keys and Ana Ivanovic have returned to the court after the collapse of Ivanovic's coach, and Murray's father-in-law, Nigel Sears. Good news, we hope. Meanwhile on Margaret Court, Murray holds.

Murray* 1-0 Sousa (1-1)

That was the first set Murray has dropped in the tournament, which is a testament to the sterling work of the world number 33. Sousa levels things at 15-15 with a knifed backhand volley before pushing a forehand long. Murray is pulled wide and finds the net with a backhand before Sousa nets with a backhand to hand Murray a break point. Murray blows it before a Sousa forehand is called out, is challenged, and the challenge is upheld. Break from Murray, sealed with a wicked, dipping forehand. 

Murray 3-6 Sousa* (1-0)

Murray pulls out his second second-serve ace before finding the net with a forehand to make it 15-30. Murray goes long to hand Sousa two set points. Sousa blows the first, bunting a forehand return long, but he doesn't blow the second, Murray slicing a return into the net. Ivanovic-Keys is about to resume.
