  4. What happened in the women's draw?

    In the women's draw, Czech eighth seed Karolina Pliskova and ninth seed Danielle Collins became the latest top-10 casualties.

    Pliskova lost to French wildcard Leolia Jeanjean, the world number 227, 6-2 6-2, while Collins was beaten 6-4 6-3 by fellow American Shelby Rogers.

  11. Doubles update

    There have been a couple of British players in winning doubles action recently.

    Briton Tara Moore and American Emina Bektas have moved into the second round of the women's doubles thanks to a 7-5 7-5 win over the pairing of Switzerland's Belinda Bencic and Ukraine's Anhelina Kalinina.

    Moore and Bektas will face the third-seeded pairing of Gabriela Dabrowski of Canada and Giuliana Olmos of Mexico in round two.

    In the men's doubles, Britain's Jonny O'Mara and American Jackson Withrow gained a 7-5 4-6 6-1 victory against the team of Sander Arends of the Netherlands and Szymon Walkow of Poland. It's the all-Italian duo of Lorenzo Sonego and Andrea Vavasori next up for O'Mara and Withrow.
