  1. See you tomorrow!

    And that's a wrap!

    Another busy day and there's more to look forward to tomorrow as British number one Johanna Konta is back in action. She's last on Court One against American Lauren Davis.

    Luke Bambridge, Dan Evans, Cameron Norrie, Dom Inglot and Neal Skupski are all in double action, representing Britan.

    Elsewhere, Kiki Bertens, Elina Svitolina (who has released her second column with BBC Sport), Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Stefanos Tsitsipas are all playing.

    See you tomorrow!

  2. Post update

    There's work to do for third seed Simona Halep. She's down a break in the second set after cruising through the first in less than half an hour.

    You can catch up on the final score of that match in the report, which will be up later on the BBC Sport website.

  3. Mixed day for Britain's hopes

    And there were mixed fortunes for the British players in action today.

    British men's number one Kyle Edmund needed only seven minutes to book his place in the second round as he wrapped up victory in his interrupted match against Jeremy Chardy.

    Resuming at 5-5 in the fifth set after bad light stopped play on Monday, Edmund won 7-6 (7-1) 5-7 6-4 4-6 7-5 this morning.

    .

    British number two Cameron Norrie lost 6-3 6-0 6-2 to French qualifier Elliot Benchetrit, before Dan Evans was beaten 6-3 7-6 6-3 6-2 by Spanish 23rd seed Fernando Verdasco.

    It means Edmund and British women's number one Johanna Konta are the country's only representatives in the second round of the singles.

    And in the doubles, Britain's Jamie Murray, with Brazilian partner Bruno Soares, lost 4-6 7-5 7-6 (7-4) to Italians Lorenzo Sonego and Matteo Berrettini in their last match together.

  4. And in the men's draw...

    Osaka wasn't the only one who had a frustrating afternoon.

    Alexander Zverev, the German fifth seed, spent almost as long on court as he did smashing his racquet into the clay.

    He eventually overcame Australian John Millman 7-6 (7-4) 6-3 2-6 6-7 (5-7) 6-3 in over four hours.

    Argentine eighth seed Juan Martin del Potro also came through a bit of a scare to beat Nicolas Jarry 3-6 6-2 6-1 6-4.

  5. Today's women's headlines

    If you missed the Naomi Osaka drama, or you're just catching up now, then she was a set down before she had to save two match points on her way to victory over Slovakia's Anna Karolina Schmiedlova.

    The US Open and Australian Open champion, playing in her first Grand Slam as the top seed, will face two-time Grand Slam champion Victoria Azarenka of Belarus in the second round.

    Azarenka, a two-time Australian Open champion, came through a topsy-turvy match with former French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko.

    .
  6. Halep comfortable

    Halep 6-2 1-0 Tomljanovic*

    Meanwhile, over on Philippe-Chatrier, defending champion Simona Halep is cruising along. No Osaka-like drama there.

    She leads a set and a game against Ajla Tomljanovic.

  7. Post update

    Who will Fernando Verdasco play next?

    Well, it could be 23-year-old French wildcard Antoine Hoang. He's currently locked into a battle with Bosnian world number 52 Damir Dzumhur.

    It's one set all and they're into a third-set tie-break at the moment.

  8. Post update

    Naomi Cavaday

    Former professional tennis player on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    Verdasco can cause problems for everyone and I think you've got to say that that was a good effort from Evans.

  9. Post update

    What a terrific match. There were 35 break points in that four-set battle between Dan Evans and Fernando Verdasco.

    Evans will have regrets - those crucial double-faults on break point in the second and third - but he performed admirably against an experienced opponent, who is seeded 23rd.

  10. Halep wins first set

    *Halep 6-2 0-0 Tomljanovic

    Over on Philippe-Chatrier, Simona Halep is breezing through her first-round match.

    She's just taken the first set against Ajla Tomljanovic 6-2, needing just under half an hour to do so.

    Daily Telegraph tennis correspondent on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    That's probably what you might have predicted. Some wizadry from Evans to stay in the match against a much heavier, stronger opponent.

  12. Game, set and match

    Verdasco 6-3 6-7 (2-6) 6-3 6-2 Evans

    Precision. Verdasco whips a few forehands into the corner, pushing Evans deeper and deeper, until he can't reach anymore.

    Tremendous battle but it's the Spaniard who is through to the next round.

  13. Post update

    *Verdasco 6-3 6-7 (2-6) 6-3 5-2 Evans

    Dan Evans isn't done yet. He pulls himself back into it and brings up deuce!

  14. Post update

    Simon Briggs

    Daily Telegraph tennis correspondent on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    This is the point where you're much more comfortable knowing you're a double break ahead. Verdasco's mental game is perhaps known as his Achilles' heel.

  15. Post update

    *Verdasco 6-3 6-7 (2-6) 6-3 5-2 Evans

    Evans, who really is giving it everything, is getting louder and louder with every chase and every stretch but Verdasco just pops a forehand into the open court and he has match point.

  16. Post update

    *Verdasco 6-3 6-7 (2-6) 6-3 5-2 Evans

    There's a big groan from Evans as he painfully stretches to reach a wide serve. He's fighting on every swing but Verdasco isn't budging.

    A whipping forehand from Evans gets him on the board though and there's a fist pump from the Brit as Verdasco's pick-up tips the net and falls out. 30-30.

  17. Post update

    *Verdasco 6-3 6-7 (2-6) 6-3 5-2 Evans

    The Spanish 23rd seed will serve for the match now. He probably didn't expect this three hour + battle with Dan Evans.

    It's been a gruelling and gripping contest.

  18. Evans holds

    *Verdasco 6-3 6-7 (2-6) 6-3 5-2 Evans

    A few big serves from Evans sets him up nicely and he's up to 40-15 pretty quickly. He tries to take the pace off the ball with some slices but Verdasco is picking them off.

    Evans gets a bit of luck though, when Verdasco's pick-up shot falls straight into the net cords.

  19. Post update

    Simon Briggs

    Daily Telegraph tennis correspondent on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    I'm not sure Evans particularly wants to prolong this agony because he's obviously feeling a bit of tightness in that calf.

  20. Verdasco holds

    Verdasco 6-3 6-7 (2-6) 6-3 5-1 Evans*

    Evans isn't finished just yet. He comes out on top in a lengthy rally and Verdasco hangs his head in disappointment.

    The Brit isn't moving smoothly though and Verdasco comfortably wraps up the service hold. He's one game away from the second round.
