Evening everyone! It's Anna here, yes, again...and I'll be taking you through what promises to be a thrilling encounter between Madison Keys and Caroline Garcia. Almost everyone is predicting this one to be a loooooong three-set encounter, so we shall see!

Play should be getting underway in around 10 minutes time, so tuck yourself in, get the tea on, and we'll hope for some good tennis!

Later on, Sam will have coverage of the night session match between Novak Djokovic and Hyeon Chung. I know, Roger got a day session ;)

Him and me both :'(

Caroline and Madison have wonderful matching kits, and they're just waiting to walk on to Rod Laver Arena.

Here we go, walk-on time.

Goodness, I thought there was a load of smoke on the court but it's some snazzy Eurosport graphics for the weather. Thankfully!

Keys wins the coin toss, and she elects to serve.

I don't know what the head-head thing is on this tweet, but these two have met twice before. One win each, with Keys winning their last encounter in 2016.

Keys to serve. Some MASSIVE forehand hitting from her to start; 15-0. Followed by an equally massive serve; 30-0. Ooooh, Garcia pouncing on that second serve return, fabulous hitting; 30-15. Another early return, and Keys nets; 30-all.

Clean ball striking from Garcia, and she brings up an early BREAK POINT. It's quickly saved thanks to an ACE; DEUCE.
