Hopefully once he beats Sinner he will face Shapo in an epic 3 set battle that gives Shapo some belief again

Another intriguing match on Tuesday is the battle of the Russians as Medvedev faces Karatsev.

Denis has advanced 6-1 6-3 over the young qualifier Majchrzak from Poland. Felix and Diego are just about to start.

Also, I must have read the schedule wrong as Rafa and Sinner are playing on Wednesday.

We might have a rain delay here which is a shame as Felix has come out guns blazing thus far.

Edit: No rain delay and Felix cruises to take the opening set 6-1 in 24 minutes. I can't recall a worst set of tennis from Diego.

Mmmhmm. No winners for Diego as of yet either, and these wet and heavy conditions are as taylor made for Shorty as it can ever get.

But hey, our dude's doing well so I won't complain no more.

That was a nice game from Felix to break right back. I think Uncle Toni is starting to have an impact.

Man, Felix played well, but that was just terrible from Diego and when you consider he went to the final last year (lost to Djoker), that's costly from a ranking points perspective. 6-1 6-3 win for FAA.

Good work by Felix to wrap things up when he did as the rain is falling quite heavy now and Djoker - Fritz are officially in a rain delay.

Me every winter: This year when I play tennis, I'm going to go for my shots and not worry about the score it's better to improve than to just win.
Me when I get a break point: Just tap it over

Forecast isn't that great for tomorrow (especially in the evening)

Karatsev sends Medvedev packing 6-2 6-4. I didn't see the entire match, but I did see most of the second set and Medvedev was playing well. The problem was Karatsev was on fire.

On the women's side, Jessica Pegula ousts Naomi Osaka 7-6 6-2. I think Naomi likes the clay about as much as Medvedev.

Shapo should be up shortly as Greek Yogurt has just eliminated 20 bounce Cilic. We also know Felix's next opponent will be Delbonis who thrashed Goatfin 6-2 6-1.

Edit: Denis is warming up as I type.

Some scrappy play by Denis in this first set, but he's been able to stay on serve versus Travaglia.

Edit: Denis wins the opening set in a tie-breaker (7-2 was the tie-breaker score).

Shapo breaks to start set 2 - Nice.

Edit: Denis awaits the winner of the Nadal - Sinner match as he advances 7-6 6-3 over Travaglia.
