Fabbiano prevails in 5th set t/b over Opelka despite being out-aced...67-2. (First set breaker also went to 32pts).

Also a little painful to see Harriet Dart get double-bagelled by her idol Sharapova. One of those matches where the loser still won 30-ish points, so most games were tight. Remember seeing Dart lose 11-13 in the third in the last round of Wimb qualifying at Roehampton a couple of years back.

Still, the Brit gals got to christen the AO champions' tie-break - both Konta and Boulter had to go the distance in R1 (think they beat Chardy-Humbert to it on Monday).

yep i think boulters rd 1 match was the first ~ i was watching, bolter mini-celebrated getting to 7 pts & later said she forgot it was to 10

Ha! I don't think we've seen a would've-won-at-7 turned into a defeat-at-10 yet. Was quite excited for De Minaur-Nadal but the four-hour struggle vs the qualifier today doesn't bode well for the youngster.

milos has served incredibly & otherwise played well/smart too

I guess we need Shapovalov, Fritz (or likelier Tsitsipas in the next round) and De Minaur to step up now and give us our first Big Three-free Slam second week in 15+ years.
