17:17 - GASQUET 6-0 6-3 6-7 6-3 SOEDA - Court One erupts. Richard Gasquet sends tennis balls flying into the joyous crowd as they rejoice in his triumph over Go Soeda. Soeda resisted well, fighting back in the third set, but it's the Frenchman who prevails and marches on into round three. Bernard Tomic is next up for Gasquet.
17:11 - GASQUET 6-0 6-3 6-7 5-3 - Soeda flashes a forehand long of the baseline and it’s two break back points for Gasquet. And Soesa throws it all away. Gasquet will serve for the match. No sign of the rain that has halted play elsewhere…
17:08 - GASQUET 6-0 6-3 6-7 4-3 SOEDA - A twist in the tale on Court One. A very loose service game from Gasquet thrown away with a wayward backhand. Soeda’s back in the fourth set. The Frenchman has looked very nervy since reeling off those opening eight games an hour ago.
16:58 - GASQUET 6-0 6-3 6-7 4-1 SOEDA - Gasquet finally displaying his ruthlessness of old as his one-handed backhand makes an appearance. Big hold. Two games away from victory. Is this the year Gasquet gets himself back amongst the big boys?
16:38 - GASQUET 6-0 6-3 6-7 SOEDA - Hang on. Soeda has taken the third set tiebreak 7-5 and we're still playing on Court One.
16:31 - GASQUET 6-0 6-3 6-6 SOEDA - So then. If Gasquet comes through this tiebreak unscathed he's into round three.
16:24 - GASQUET 6-0 6-3 5-5 SOEDA - Level in the third set after a rather crazy match. Soeda has steadied himself, but surely he doesn't have a five set comeback in him?
16:12 - GASQUET 6-0 6-3 3-3 SOEDA - The job's not done for Gasquet quite yet although he has got that one-handed backhand flowing freely. Currently at deuce on the Soeda service game.
15:46 - GASQUET 6-0 6-3 SOEDA - Well Soeda's comeback didn't last long. Gasquet steadies himself to take the second set and move within touching distances of round number three.
15:32 - GASQUET 6-0 4-3 SOEDA - It's all happening on Court One as Gasquet responds to Soeda's fightback. Another break levels the second set before the Frenchman holds superbly. Neither player is serving well - both down in the 40s and 50s.
15:19 - GASQUET 6-0 2-1 SOEDA - Sorry Gasquet fans. Your man was on course for a nice set of bagels, but he's thrown away serve and handed Soeda a route back into their clash.
15:16 - GASQUET 6-0 2-0 SOEDA - Gasquet is on fire at the moment! He's won all eight games so far and is showing no signs of slowing down. The ninth seed turning a few heads today with this display.
14:53 - GASQUET 2-0 SOEDA: Richard Gasquet is now in action on Court One, and the number eight seed has made a great start, going a break up against Go Soeda of Japan.
