Konta the Day 3 shock exit

Fernando Verdasco turned back the clock on Day Three when he completed a victory over 9th seed young gun Alexander Zverev.  
The match was in limbo overnight but the popular Spaniard was on fire and won the final two sets, taking a huge proportion of points off the German serve.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is in trouble in his first round match which was stopped overnight with the crowd favourite down 5-7 4-6 7-6 4-5 against Argentine Renzo Olivo.

Andy Murray surrendered a set as did Kei Nishikori and Tomas Berdych, but all managed their way through against valiant opponents Andrey Kuznetsov, Thanasi Kokkinakis and Jan-Lennard Struff.

Easier for Stan Wawrinka, Gael Monfils and Nick Kyrgios who swept away Jozef Kovalik, Dustin Brown and Philipp Kohlschreiber in straight sets.

Johanna Konta, seeded seven, and winner in Miami and Sydney this year, was surprisingly ousted by 109th ranked Su-Wei Hsieh after taking the opening set 6-1.

All other female seeded players won in straight sets.

Today's matches feature Muguruza, Djokovic, Wozniacki, Nadal, Raonic, Venus Williams, Goffin, Cibulkova, Kuznetsova and Thiem in second round clashes.
