  1. Goodbye!

    There are plenty of Brits in action again tomorrow so we'll be back soon. Join us for Cameron Norrie's first-round match against French qualifier Elliot Benchetrit - that gets under way at 10:00 BST.

    Dan Evans is also playing in the singles and Jamie Murray will be in doubles action with Bruno Soares.

    And, of course, Kyle Edmund will be back out to see if he can beat Jeremy Chardy and make it through to the second round. If you missed any of his match so far, catch up with the report here.

    On Philippe-Chatrier, Simona Halep begins her title defence. The Romanian is on court after German Alexander Zverev and Japanese top seed Naomi Osaka.

    So that's all from court one after a VERY long day at the French Open.

    There's been plenty of drama at Roland Garros, here's a quick round-up in case you missed any of it:

    • British number one Johanna Konta says she stopped herself "overthinking" in the win that sent her into round two.
    • Serena Williams survived a scare as she fought back to beat Russian world number 83 Vitalia Diatchenko.
    • Top seeds Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal secured their places in the second round with routine victories.
    • Former Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki says she "ran out of steam" in a surprise first-round defeat by Russian world number 68 Veronika Kudermetova.
    • Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova has withdrawn with an arm injury.

    Well. Shaking heads all round in the crowd as time is called. That decision was greeted like a home boxer losing a dodgy points decision.

    For what it’s worth, I reckon they could have squeezed in a couple more games.

    Chardy 6-7 (1-7) 7-5 4-6 6-4 5-5 Edmund*

    Three hours and 55 minutes played and no conclusion. No wonder the fans aren't pleased.

    Chardy 6-7 (1-7) 7-5 4-6 6-4 5-5 Edmund*

    What a moment to call time on that match.

    It will now be second on this court tomorrow, but there is rain forecast.

  6. Play suspended

    Chardy 6-7 (1-7) 7-5 4-6 6-4 5-5 Edmund*

    Wow. That is quite a decision and one that has not gone down well with the crowd.

    There will be no more play tonight.

    Uh oh, the locals aren’t happy when the match referee comes out to discuss the light.

    The crowd howl with derision as he comes out with his light-o-meter.

  8. Chardy holds

    Chardy holds but the crowd starts booing. Are they going to call time on this match for the night?

    No idea what these French lads are singing - other than it is pro-Chardy.

    Incredible atmosphere.

    The Bullring rises to its feet to cheer Chardy to the baseline like he’s a matador who’s just got the prize.

    Edmund is doing extraordinarily well to block all this out and keep grinding.

    Chardy* 6-7 (1-7) 7-5 4-6 6-4 4-5 Edmund

    What a moment. Edmund looks as though he may take a 30-15 lead, but Chardy's forehand catches the net and just lands in. He follows it up with an ace to make it 40-15.

    Edmund is now four points away from winning but if Edmund doesn't break in this game he will be eight points away.

    And then it goes round and round. That will be in his head.

    Chardy* 6-7 (1-7) 7-5 4-6 6-4 4-5 Edmund

    There is a group of quite rowdy teenage boys in the crowd chanting and swaying with their arms around each other. It's getting pretty raucous in the Bullring.

  13. Edmund holds

    Chardy* 6-7 (1-7) 7-5 4-6 6-4 4-5 Edmund

    No such mistake on the next point that. A cross-court backhand and Edmund holds.

    Chardy 6-7 (1-7) 7-5 4-6 6-4 4-4 Edmund*

    Edmund comes out on top of a 27-shot rally, then puts in two big serves to make it 40-0.

    But then the Brit's focus momentarily lapses and he hits a forehand wide... then a backhand. 40-30.

    Punters are packing in wherever they can to watch this thriller. The gangway around the middle of the arena is full of people on their feet, the ledge just below them filled with perching bums.

    And they’re still queuing on the stairs outside.

  16. Chardy holds

    Chardy 6-7 (1-7) 7-5 4-6 6-4 4-4 Edmund*

    And hold he does.

    A reminder that there is no fifth-set tie-break at the French Open...

  17. Post update

    Chardy* 6-7 (1-7) 7-5 4-6 6-4 3-4 Edmund

    Edmund is really attacking Chardy's service games now. Lovely work on the baseline and he forces the Frenchman to go long.

    But Chardy recovers and wins the next two points.

    Edmund brings it back to 30-30 and Chardy relies on his serve once again. Another ace gives him the chance to hold.

    The bizarre thing that often happens when it's suspended deep into the fifth set - like this one could be - is that you may come back and only actually play a couple of games. It's very hard to come back again.

  19. Post update

    Chardy* 6-7 (1-7) 7-5 4-6 6-4 3-4 Edmund

    A much more confident service game from Edmund. A couple more powerful forehands and he holds to love.

    How long can this go on for tonight? I reckon about another 35 minutes.

    Last year Cameron Norrie, in another cross-Channel battle against Lucas Pouille, was eventually forced off at 21:42 local time.

    I can remember straining to see the players on the old Chatrier.
