And here's the moment plucky Yorkshireman Kyle Edmund was finally beaten in five sets by giant South African Kevin Anderson. Still plenty of room for improvement for the British No.2 based on this performance, however.

14:18

Heartbreak for British No.2 Kyle Edmund, who loses in five to 6'8" South African Kevin Anderson. A gritty effort from the Yorkshireman but he didn't quite have enough.

14:09 

EDMUND 7-6 6-7 7-5 1-6 4-5 ANDERSON: Kyle Edmund has done so well to stay in this fifth set but Kevin Anderson is serving for the match after a crucial break. Can the British No.2 break back?

13:54 

EDMUND 7-6 6-7 7-5 1-6 3-2 ANDERSON: Over on Court No.2, the British No.2 has rallied after that dismal fourth set. Edmund saves three break points to lead 3-2 in the decider. Still on course for two Brits in Round 4...

13:26

EDMUND 7-6 6-7 7-5 1-6 ANDERSON: Meanwhile, the British No.2 has collapsed somewhat on Court No.2 After taking the third set, Kyle Edmund has been thumped in the fourth. He does have a habit of fading. Fitness problems? It's all square.

13:04

EDMUND 7-6 6-7 7-5 ANDERSON: Edmund holds to take the third set. Could we have two Brits in the fourth round for the first time ever? Edmund looking as likely as Murray at the moment.

13:00

EDMUND 7-6 6-7 6-5 ANDERSON: Significant moment for Kyle Edmund, who gets the first break of the match with only his second break point. Understated first clench from the Brit, who is serving for the third set.

12:28 

EDMUND 7-6 6-7 2-3 ANDERSON: Still not a single break of serve on Court No.2, where Kyle Edmund is serving to level the third set. Only a fool would rule out another tie-break.

12:05 

EDMUND 7-6 6-7 ANDERSON: Kevin Anderson's big hitting is too much for Kyle Edmund in the second set tie-break, which the South African won 7-4. All square on Court No.2.

 

EDMUND 7-6 6-6 ANDERSON: Big South African Kevin Anderson holds his nerve and holds his serve to take the second set to a tie break against Kyle Edmund on Court No.2.

11:12 

Edmund takes the first set! 8-6 in the tie-break and he now has the upper hand. If the second set is anything like the second, it won't be easy.

11:05 

As they have all set, Edmund and Anderson match each other all the way. 3-3 now in the tie break for the first set.

10:57 

Edmund is 5-6 down and serving to force a tie-break. He's yet to start serving, so the pressure is on now.

10:47 

Edmund and Anderson are still slogging it out, 4-4, with Anderson in charge of his service game.

10:36 

Anderson is 3-2 up against Edmund, who is 30-15 down in his own service game. Edmund is the first Briton to feature this morning, with Murray still to play Del Potro.

10:20 

The South African Anderson is 2-1 up against Edmund, but the match is still going with serve. No cause for alarm

10:10 

Kyle Edmund, the first Briton of the day, is warming up against Kevin Anderson.
