  1. Osaka breaks back

    Osaka 4-6 4-4 Azarenka*

    Naomi Osaka yells a “COME ON” after bringing up a break point. The world number one is having to battled like mad to get back into this.

    She gets it! The top seed has leveled things up again in this second set. She won’t go without a fight.

    Edmund has won just four points in the past five games.

  3. Post update

    Cuevas 7-6 (7-3) 6-3 1-0 Edmund*

    I don’t mean to make it sound too bleak for Kyle Edmund fans reading this but he has NEVER come from two sets down to win.

    Pablo Cuevas is controlling this match. He looks completely it home on the red clay.

  4. ‘A bit flat’

    *Cuevas 7-6 (7-3) 6-3 0-0 Edmund

    Eleanor Crooks

    Tennis correspondent for the Press Association

    Edmund has just not managed to put Cuevas under any pressure. He is playing well, but is allowed to be. It is a very curious performance from Kyle, it’s a bit flat.

  5. Game and second set – Cuevas

    *Cuevas 7-6 (7-3) 6-3 0-0 Edmund

    Edmund just isn’t getting to the ball like he was earlier. Pablo Cuevas hits another forehand and Edmund can’t get a racket on it.

    It’s going to take something spectacular – and a pretty special energy boost – for him to win from here.

  6. Post update

    Cuevas 7-6 (7-3) 5-3 Edmund*

    Kyle Edmund’s hopes are fading fast. Perhaps feeling the pain in his legs, he tries to shorten the points but misses the volley.

    Pablo Cuevas has two set points

  7. Post update

    Cuevas 7-6 (7-3) 5-3 Edmund*

    With Kyle Edmund’s tempers bubbling at the other end, Pablo Cuevas stays calm. He’s just making his opponent player.

    Edmund will now serve to stay in the second set.

  8. Osaka holds serve

    Osaka 4-6 3-4 Azarenka*

    World number one Naomi Osaka has had to save another break point against Victoria Azarenka. An early exit really was staring in her in the face there.

    The Japanese player holds but she’s still going to have to break soon or she is going home.

    Uh oh. Kyle Edmund is furious with himself. He drills a forehand long and after staring at the chair umpire to check it had not dusted the line, swings round to focus his burning eyes sharply on his box.

    “FIX IT!!!” he screams after walloping a ball into the clay and storming off to his chair.

    Eeek. A few worried looks on the fans, not often you see Edmund so angry.

  10. Cuevas breaks

    *Cuevas 7-6 (7-3) 4-3 Edmund

    Edmund erupts in frustration in a way we don’t see too often. He hits a third unforced error of the game and hammers a ball into the dirt. He screams and whacks his leg en route to his chair, before shouting again at his box.

    He’s now a set and a break behind.

  11. Post update

    Cuevas 7-6 (7-3) 3-3 Edmund*

    Another unforced error from Edmund. His legs look like they’re made of lead all of a sudden.

    Three break points for Cuevas

  12. Post update

    Cuevas 7-6 (7-3) 3-3 Edmund*

    Cuevas senses his moment.


  13. Post update

    Jonathan Jurejko

    BBC Sport at Roland Garros

    British Davis Cup captain Leon Smith arrived to watch Kyle Edmund a short time ago, presumably straight from the other side of the main avenue linking Lenglen and Chatrier through the heart of Roland Garros.

    That’s because Dan Evans and Cameron Norrie are playing in the men’s doubles on the nearby court nine.

    They’re into a third set against 14th seeds Robin Haase and Frederik Nielsen.

  14. Post update

    Cuevas 7-6 (7-3) 3-3 Edmund*

    Frustration looks to be building in Kyle Edmund. He’s not too happy with a line call I don’t think and he’s not getting a look in on the Cuevas serve at the moment. He stands like a tea pot at the end of the game.

  15. Post update

    BBC Sport at Roland Garros

    A startling roar drifts over court six from Chatrier. Turns out it is not because Alexander Bublik has thrown in another underarm serve…

  16. Top seed Osaka on way out?

    Osaka* 4-6 2-4 Azarenka

    Victoria Azarenka is making this second set her own.

    She seals the first break of the set before holding to go 4-2 up.

    This looks like it’s going to be Azarenka’s day. How will Osaka respond?

  17. Post update

    *Cuevas 7-6 (7-3) 2-3 Edmund

    Just as I praise Cuevas he plays a poor game of his own. A forehand is out of control and a drop shot hits the net.

    We’re still on serve.

  18. Game and second set – Bublik

    *Thiem 6-3 6-7 (6-8) 0-0 Bublik

    Over on Court Philippe Chatrier, fourth seed Dominic Thiem has lost the second set on a tie-break against Kazakhstan’s Alexander Bublik.

    Bublik held a 4-1 game lead, before Thiem fought back to take it to a tie-break and the Austrian had one set point in that but could not take it and we’re all square.

    The winner of that one plays the winner of the Cuevas-Edmund match.

  19. Post update

    Cuevas 7-6 (7-3) 2-2 Edmund*

    While Edmund has been a bit up and down, Cuevas has looked very solid and every inch a clay-court specialist.

    He dabs his forehand with the white sweatband around his wrist before holding to love in quick time.

  20. Edmund holds

    *Cuevas 7-6 (7-3) 1-2 Edmund

    No mistake on the smash this time from the British number one. He gives this one plenty – maybe with a tinge of frustration from that miss a few moments ago – and bounces it out of the court.

    That helps Kedders hold.

    There’s a bit of a spring in his step as he heads for a breather.
