Konta 3-6, 3-6 Gauff
Two match points for Gauff on the Konta serve. Konta gets one back with a neat volley before the American seals it on her second go with the Brit hitting a backhand into the net.
It's a debut win for Gauff and her parents in the stands are ecstatic. A fine win under difficult conditions. Three Brits played today. Three Brits are out.

Straightforward stuff for Gauff so far with Konta not able to get into any real rhythm. The 16-year-old is just one game away from taking this first set.
Konta *0-2 Gauff
That didn't take long. Gauff breaks the Konta serve so already the Brit has a mountain to climb.
