  • CIL UP

    Marin Cilic took a first break tie-breaker 7-3 against No2 seed Daniil Medvedev.

  • ROG REACTS

    Roger Federer was full of praise for Cam Norrie.

    But he is pleased with how his own game is going.

    Super relieved. It was a tough battle and it was so close. He deserved that third set, he played excellent today.
    For me, I felt I was able to keep a high level of play and he got that good break at the end of the third – but overall I can be very happy with how I played.
    It’s obviously very different [from my win in round one]. Lefties have different strengths and weaknesses. I’m playing at a high level now and things are going well for me.

  • BANG

    How on earth do you defend against that?

  • TIM SAYS

    Ex-British number one Tim Henman was impressed with both men’s efforts.

    Great match, credit to both players. You can see by Federer’s reaction at the end how much it means to him but also how much Cameron Norrie made him work for it.
    Roger’s game has significantly moved forward from where it was in round one. He will be delighted to be in the second week.
