  1. - - GASQUET 7-6 6-2 6-3 - GAME, SET AND MATCH! Gasquet wore down the early spirited challenge from Johnson, to finish off in confident fashion. An hour and 58 minutes after he began, Gasquet has dumped out another American hope. A very tasty clash between the enigmatic Frenchman and David Ferrer awaits in the last 16. Draw

  2. - - GASQUET 7-6 6-2 - BREAK AND SET! Has Johnson run his race here? Having gone toe-to-toe with the talented Frenchman, the American loses a second straight service game, and despite having a chance to wipe one of those breaks out in the final game of set two, cannot do so. Coming back from two down seems a long way away.

  3. - - GASQUET 7-6 3-2 - BREAK! It's taken 17 service games before we see a break of serve, but finally we have one, and it falls to the Frenchman. At a set and a break up, he is now almost halfway to victory in this tie.

  4. - - GASQUET 7-6 - SET! There was no splitting Gasquet and Johnson in the opener, with each man holding six games with minimal fuss. Unfancied Johnson races into a 4-0 lead in the tie-break, only for Gasquet to roar back to win 7 in a row! That's a real sap for the home hope, who's now down a set after 52 minutes on Grandstand.

  5. 21:30 - About to begin on Grandstand, Richard Gasquet, the 13th seed, takes on home hope Steve Johnson. Gasquet should be a firm favourite against the 22-year-old, ranked 237 in the world, but Johnson did impress when he downed Ernests Gulbis in the previous round.

  2. Where has Johnson been hiding? He's doing great­ this tournament but had never heard of him before.
