Raducanu breaks Mertens again, and at 2-1, is wasting no time as she serves to make it 3-1.

A stinging double-handed backhand down the line goes unreturned and a big serve elicits a wayward return, too.

3-1 in the second and if she holds serve for the rest of the set she'll be into the third round.

A hold each from 4-0 sees Raducanu at 5-1 up against Mertens and serving for the first set on Court 1.

30-all and a rare moment of tension for the 21-year-old. And she slides one long! 30-40 and Mertens' second break point of the set.

Mertens forces her beyond the baseline with some powerful hitting then pulls out the drop shot, Raducanu races forward, gets there... and whips it down the line for deuce!

Advantage, and a big serve sees Mertens' return loop comfortably wide. 6-1, first set. Great start.

There, Czech Linda Noskova (26) has just been beaten by Canadian Bianca Andreescu, 6-3, 7-6(5).

Let's go, Emma!

Raducanu has two break points at 15-40 on Mertens' serve, one saved...

But she unleashes a sumptuous passing winner with a cross-court forehand to grab the double break at the second opportunity!

Some touch.

It's not been completely all Raducanu's way so far.

It took her third break point to get past Mertens in the second game, and the Belgian had break point on the Brit in the third too, before Raducanu eventually held.

Gasps and cheers from those watching Emma on the big screen. Not me though, I was hurried along by a stern-faced steward.

She's 3-0 up, with an early break against Belgian Elise Mertens.

That little courtside pause after three games means the few stragglers still waiting to get in who missed the very start can shuffle to their seats.

As one of the British tennis hopes takes to Court 1, one Brit has just been knocked out on the men's side.

Dan Evans' tough season continues as he has been beaten in straight sets (6-2, 7-5, 6-3) by 24th seed Alejandro Tabilo. Evans was playing with heavy strapping on his right knee after a recent injury and didn't look himself against a tough opponent.

As for his Chilean opponent, a third-round meeting with 22-year-old Italian Flavio Cobolli awaits.

Bianca Andreescu interview: How she found her tennis – and herself

Emma Raducanu is into the third round! (95)

On a warm, muggy morning last summer, Bianca Andreescu sat cross-legged on a couch in a sprawling home in Washington, D.C., talking about everything she had thought about during her time away from tennis.

While she nursed her injuries and struggled with her mental relationship with the sport to which she has dedicated her life, the star from Canada had gone on a spiritual and yoga retreat in Costa Rica, where few had any idea she was a tennis player and even fewer cared.

Then, a stress fracture in her back that would sideline her for nine months — the latest in a string of bad-luck ailments that have threatened the career of a woman widely seen as a generational talent. If only she could just stay healthy.

“It sucked,” Andreescu said of that latest calamity, one evening in Paris last month. And then, once more, she was back to trying to make her glass half-full. “The more I get injured, the more I learn about myself and the more I find tools to help me recover faster and get better quicker.”
