Matilda duly won 6-3 6-1 Jack has just edged the first set tiebreak 7-5 (saved a setpoint at 5-6). I must have misread the draw, as he is playing an American wildcard Colton Smith


 If he wins he will play Bailly next however, as he won his second round match today.

Looks like Matilda (singles and doubles), Jack (doubles) and Lui (doubles) are all scheduled for their next matches today...

Long games as often is the case for Matilda - she lost the second set 6-4 but leads the decider 4*-3 0-30

2 more breaks and Matilda will serve for it

2 more breaks for 6*-5 (Matilda's latest somewhat fortunate as Sierra lost a point for touching the net after putting away a smash)

Unsurprisingly it will be decided on a tiebreak

Sierra's slightly greater weight of shot probably proved the difference in the end

This match was pretty diabolical. Matilda really blew the third set with shocking errors off nothing balls. And Sierra, who at times could barely walk between points (although she recovered miraculously towards the end), struck a clean winner at 5-5* deuce and for no reason wandered into the net to accidentally give Matilda the point. Then sent a basic high backhand into the score board at the back of the court to give Matilda another break.

Matilda then double faulted twice to get broken again at *6-5.

Quality improved in a very tense tiebreaker, Matilda went up *4-2 but Sierra stepped up and because Matilda can't do very much meaningful with the ball other than pat it about, she didn't win another point.

Out 6-3 4-6 6-7(4)

I'll keep saying it until it happens. Matilda would really benefit from going down the US college route. A good programme would I think do wonders for her development, plus give her the time to get physically stronger if she does want to go Pro later.

Saw the last 15 mins of that.

Sierra completely deserved to win. Far more entrepreneurial, just better shots, more construction of the point, more daring....
