  4. 'I had a paper cut...'

    Edmund 6-0 1-6 6-2 6-3 Fucsovics

    And what about the treatment Kyle Edmund received on his finger in the second set?

    "I had a paper cut that was slightly splitting as I was playing, so wanted to cover it," he explained.

  5. 'You have to find a way to win'

    Edmund 6-0 1-6 6-2 6-3 Fucsovics

    Well, the British number three's French Open run might have come to an end, but the British number one continues to fly the flag.

    And here is Kyle Edmund: "It was job done in the end. I made life difficult for myself in the second set.

    "Tennis is tricky in that way when you are cruising, he holds at the start of the second and he is on the board and has a bit of confidence.

    "It's something to learn from, but I am happy to come through.

    "When I am playing at my best it is very good. I run at a high intensity, but you can't play at that all the time - when you are not playing your best you have to find a way to win."

  6. 'Fantastic education for Norrie'

    It was a fantastic education for Norrie. He's playing the elite of the world game and is pushing them closer and closer. There's so much he can work on from matches like this.

  7. Edmund to face Fognini

    And awaiting British number one Kyle Edmund in the third round is Italy's Fabio Fognini.

  8. Game, set and match Pouille

    Pouille 6-2 6-4 5-7 7-6 (7-3) Norrie

    Lucas Pouille

    And it is Lucas Pouille who comes through against Cameron Norrie and the French 15th seed will be a very relieved man because the fourth-set tiebreak had its controversy.

    With Norrie trailing 5-3 it looked like he had made it 5-4 with a winning volley. But his foot touched the net and the Frenchman was awarded the point instead.

    It gave Pouille matchpoint which he duly converted.

  9. Game, set and match Edmund

    Marton Fucsovics goes long! Kyle Edmund takes the match in two hours and 16 minutes.

    Edmund 6-0 1-6 6-2 4-3 Fucsovics*

    Great tennis from Marton Fucsovics, who gets Kyle Edmund swiveling on the baseline as he wrongfoots the Brit with a reverse forehand. All in the eyes.

    Edmund digs deep into his own box of magic tricks though and pulls out a rabbit... sorry, a winning forehand down the line.

    Break point.

    Lucas Pouille and Cameron Norrie

    Heavy groans on Chatrier every time Cameron Norrie wins a point, nerve-shocking loud cheers when the Briton loses one.

    If you're stood outside Roland Garros' main court without eyes glued to a big screen, you could still work out what was going on.

    Showtime for Marton Fucsovics, but that won't make the highlights reel - an attempted forehand through his legs, but the Hungarian can't get any real purchase on it.

    Kyle Edmund holds.

    Now it's Fucsovics heading for the net, catching Edmund by surprise off the Brit's serve - and it works for the 26-year-old.

    Edmund flicks a wrist and with it a winner down the line, before making it 30-15.

    Cameron Norrie's forehand is a beast because of the way it kicks up on clay. The backhand is not particularly suited to clay and is better on a faster surface.

    Lucas Pouille is a unit and is soild in every area but he lacks the one standout shot to take down players in the top 10 on a regular basis.
