Credit to Andreeva for her mental resilience in that opening game of the third set. Gauff quickly got herself two break points but the 16-year-old clawed back into the game from the baseline to halt the slide.
Swiatek has taken an early lead in the first set. The top seed and world number one leads 2-0.
Nicolás Jarry’s match against Marcos Giron on court seven is into a fourth set. The Chilean leads 6-2, 6-3, 6-7(9), 2-1.
Coco Gauff levels the match against Mirra Andreeva! 6-7(7), 6-1
Gauff starts with a double-fault and then Andreeva gets very unlucky with a net-cord. Suddenly Gauff looks very nervy and is talking to herself. A pass at the net makes it 15-30 and a leaping backhand to take a clubbed return early levels the game. Another whipped backhand gives Gauff set point and her first ace seals the set.

Bad to worse for Andreeva. Gauff has responded really well to that blow in the tie-break. The American will now serve for the set.
Gauff gets an advantage here in the second, racing to a 0-40 lead on Andreeva’s serve. Can the American back it up with a hold?
