1.23pm: Katie Swan became the first casualty of the day as she was beaten 4-6 6-4 6-4 by Marta Kostyuk. In a match that was postponed on Monday, Swan took the opening set, but the Ukrainian came back.
1.57pm: There was more disappointment as Jay Clarke exited to Christian Harrison in a contest that started on Monday. The British number seven went down 7-6 (3) 6-1 7-6 (6).
2.16pm: A hat-trick of British losses was completed with defeat for Sonay Kartal. The Brighton player had her opponent changed at short notice due to a withdrawal but suffered a 6-4 3-6 6-1 loss to Dutch lucky loser Lesley Pattinama Kerkhove.

3.43pm: Paul Jubb fell just short in an epic five-set battle with Nick Kyrgios. Jubb put up a valiant fight against the Australian but eventually succumbed to a 3-6 6-1 7-5 6-7 (3) 7-5 loss.

8.38pm:: Liam Broady kept the wins rolling in, getting past Lukas Klein in five sets. It took three hours and 30 minutes but the world number 132 won 4-6 6-3 7-5 6-7 (2) 6-3.
8.50: Katie Boulter ensured the day would end on a winning note as she became the sixth British success. Boulter, on her way back from injury, had too much for Frenchwoman Clara Burel, winning 7-5 6-3.
