    French Open 2016

    Jamie Murray, Australian Open doubles winner, has tweeted about his brother's game... 

  4. Get involved


    Daniel Woods: "Murray probably a bit disappointed he didn't wrap up the 4th set. Will the momentum he has be enough?"

  5. Play suspended

    Stepanek 6-3 6-3 0-6 2-4 Murray

    That's it. No more light. The players go off and will regroup for tomorrow. 

  6. Post update

    Stepanek 6-3 6-3 0-6 2-4 Murray*

    Stepanek, looking a little tired now, goes 30-0 up. The light is really fading now.

    A tiny, weeny, little slice over the net from Murray makes it 30-15. Cheeky, that. 

    Stepanek responds with a monster of a forehand winner to make it 40-15, and the Czech holds serve. 

  7. Game, set and match Edmund

    Edmund 7-6 6-7 7-5 6-1 Basilashvili

    He's done it!

    Kyle Edmund joins Heather Watson in the second round with an emphatic performance in the fourth set against Georgia's Nikoloz Basilashvili.

    The 21-year-old Briton fired down 16 aces to overpower his opponent.

  8. Edmund on the verge of victory

    Edmund 7-6 6-7 7-5 5-1 Basilashvili

    Meanwhile sensational form from Kyle Edmund has seen the Briton open a 5-1 lead over Nikoloz Basilashvili in the fourth set.

    Surely a place in the second round awaits now!

    He's serving for the match...

  9. Post update

    *Stepanek 6-3 6-3 0-6 1-4 Murray

    Murray slams a brilliant forehand down the middle of the court for 40-0. 

    Stepanek steals back a point but Murray finds an ace in his locker and he holds serve.

    As he goes to sit down, the Scotsman shouts to the umpire: "It's getting dark". 

  10. Post update

    Stepanek 6-3 6-3 0-6 1-3 Murray*

    This may well be the last game we see. Apparently court one have just been hauled off for bad light.

    Stepanek finally stops the rot and wins a service game. 

    No indication of stopping just yet...

  11. Get involved


     Andrew Robert: "Are you sure Andy's not shouting "Mon!" as in "Come on!"?

    You obviously speak better Murray than me...I swear he's saying 'mine'. 

  12. Post update

    *Stepanek 6-3 6-3 0-6 0-3 Murray

    My word. Stepanek has just won a rally by flicking a backhand round the net posts. Where did he pull that from!? 

    The pair are level on 30-30. There's a cry of frustration as Murray carelessly puts out a return on the right-hand side. Break point Stepanek.

    But Murray keeps him at bay with another exhausting rally. Deuce. Murray loses the advantage, before gaining it back again. 

    And a shot into the net from Stepanek sees Murray claim his NINTH consecutive game. 

    What a turn around!

    Andy Murray
  13. Murray breaks again

    Stepanek 6-3 6-3 0-6 0-2 Murray*

    Stepanek edges a brilliant, brilliant rally. He really is working Murray to the ground out there, mixing up his returns in the most unpredictable manner. 

    But Murray draws level at 30-30, and then earns another break point. With another shout of "mine".

    Stepanek fails to get his first serve in and on his second, a return goes long and the game is Murray's. 

  14. Edmund takes the third set

    Edmund 7-6 6-7 7-5 Basilashvili

    The Murray fightback seems to be catching. Kyle Edmund has just taken the third set against Georgia's Nikoloz Basilashvili, having fought back from 5-3 down to take it 7-5.

    Edmund is one set away from the second round, but will he have time to do it before play is suspended for the day?

  15. Post update

    *Stepanek 6-3 6-3 0-6 0-1 Murray

    Andy Murray's developed a weird habit of shouting "mine" when he wins a point. He sounds like one of the seagulls from Disney's Finding Nemo. 

    He also screams another "let's go" as he goes 30-15 up. 

    Stepanek is forced forward and he thinks he's won the point with a backhand volley but Murray returns and the Czech can only muster a return into the net. 40-15. 

    The British number one and second seed goes on to wrap up his seventh consecutive game. 

  16. Post update

    Stepanek 6-3 6-3 0-6 Murray*

    Stepanek changes his shirt. Could these be tactics for slowing down play? Hummmm....

    Anyhooo, we're continuing. Various commentary teams reckon we've got 15 minutes of light left. 

  17. Post update

    Stepanek 6-3 6-3 0-6 Murray*

    The debate continues about the light.

    Stepanek has gone to the toilet. Andy Murray and the umpire discuss what's going to happen on court. 

  18. Game and third set

    Stepanek 6-3 6-3 0-6 Murray*

    "It's incredible how much arrogance there is," says a riled Radek Stepanek. 

    Ooooooh. Fighting talk to the umpire, as the Czech complains about the light. We're continuing for now.

    He needs to concentrate as well - Murray has two set points. 

    Stepanek can only hit into the net as Murray claims the third set in style.

  19. Post update

    *Stepanek 6-3 6-3 0-5 Murray

    I've barely had time to shove a custard cream in my gob during this set. It's just too quick.

    Murray holds his serve to love and now leads 5-0 in the third. He's done it in about 15 minutes. Madness. 

  20. Broady beaten by Vandeweghe

    Broady 4-6 6-3 3-6 Vandeweghe

    It looked promising for Britain's Naomi Broady after she won the second set but American Coco Vandeweghe outplayed her in the final set to reach the second round.

    Kyle Edmund is also facing an uphill battle. He's 5-3 down in the third set against Nikoloz Basilashvili, having lost the second set after winning the first.
