"Jo started to look extremely flustered," says Eurosport pundit Annabel Croft.

"Jo looked like she was crushing Hsieh, but wasn't really getting value for it," adds Miles Maclagan.

- 
- 

Hsieh Su-Wei is beaming as she signs autographs and heads off court, wiping her fce with her blue towel. Johanna Konta made a quick exit.

- 
-

KONTA 6-1 6-7 4-6 HSIEH: Konta has four break points but simply can't direct her shots any more. Hsieh moves on to match point but loses it after a brilliant backhand return from the Brit - but the second match point is converted. Johanna Konta is OUT.

- 

KONTA 6-1 6-7 4-5 HSIEH: A resurgence of Konta's serve as it was in the first set - a good hold. Can she channel that power into breaking Hsieh to stay in the match?

- 

KONTA 6-1 6-7 3-5 HSIEH: A wide return from Konta, and now she's staring down the barrel of a first-round exit. What a turnaround.

- 
-

KONTA 6-1 6-7 3-4 HSIEH: A third successive break of serve! It's difficult to call a winner now - both players are looking a bit twitchy on serve, but there's still some great tennis being played.

-

KONTA 6-1 6-7 3-3 HSIEH: Brave from Konta, breaking straight back as Hsieh starts to look a little nervy in the lead.

-

KONTA 6-1 6-7 2-3 HSIEH: Wow. That's the break for Hsieh, and the pendulum is firmly swinging in her direction.

- 

KONTA 6-1 6-7 2-2 HSIEH: Konta isn't getting the winners and Hsieh is revelling in her additional time to put the pressure on.

- 
- 

KONTA 6-1 6-7 2-1 HSIEH: Hsieh pushes Konta all the way, point for point, but the British number one fights hard to hold.

- 

KONTA 6-1 6-7 1-1 HSIEH: Hsieh holds too and this looks like it's going to be tight in the third.

- 
- 

KONTA 6-1 6-7 1-0 HSIEH: All to do now for Konta, and she opens the decider with another good hold. She took a break between sets and headed off court.

-

KONTA 6-1 6-7(2) HSIEH: This is exquisite from Hsieh, who's judging her shots brilliantly and just muffling the fizz of Konta. The Brit takes the first two points but can't get another one in the tie-break.

- 

KONTA 6-1 6-6 HSIEH: A rousing "Come on!" from Konta as she holds to stay in the set and secure the tie-break.

- 

KONTA 6-1 5-6 HSIEH: Three break points for Konta, and not a one converted as Hsieh hits right back at her with a couple of strokes of genius.

- 

KONTA 6-1 5-5 HSIEH: Konta holds well but Hsieh really is prodding at the serve more than she was in the first.

- 

KONTA 6-1 4-5 HSIEH: More unusual play from Hsieh, which is tough for Konta to predict. The seventh seed has to serve to stay in this set.

- 
 

KONTA 6-1 4-4 HSIEH: Well, well. Hsieh has double break point and throws them away, missing an easy shot at the net. She grabs another, and Konta defends that brilliantly, using her feet and the court well; the fourth is lost when Hsieh skews into the net. Great response from Konta, who had to work very hard there.

- 

KONTA 6-1 3-4 HSIEH: Gutsy stuff from Hsieh, who gives Konta another break point but reclaims her focus enough to grab it back.

- 

KONTA 6-1 3-3 HSIEH: Konta's serve is looking pretty impregnable this morning.

- 

KONTA 6-1 2-3 HSIEH: Hsieh has gathered her nerves in this second set and not gifting Konta quite so many easy points.

- 

KONTA 6-1 2-2 HSIEH: Belting service hold to love from Konta, with an ace in there as well. Tremendous.

- 

KONTA 6-1 1-2 HSIEH: Hsieh gets some fortune here, the net coming to her rescue; and she pulls off some unorthodox drop shots to rescue a break point.

- 

KONTA 6-1 1-1 HSIEH: Another hold to love on the Konta serve. She's looking dominant and like she wants to get this done soon.

- 

KONTA 6-1 0-1 HSIEH: Good start to the second set from Hsieh, a little more consideration with her placement.

- 
- 

That took just 24 minutes. TWENTY-FOUR.

-

KONTA 6-1 HSIEH: A straightforward hold, and Konta is absolutely dominant on Chatrier. First set to the British number one.

-

KONTA 5-1 HSIEH: Another easy break for Konta and now she's going to get the chance to serve for the first set.

- 

KONTA 4-1 HSIEH: This is some great tennis from Konta. She's looking at home on the clay and utterly outclassing Hsieh, who goes 30-15 up briefly but is not allowed to rest on that lead.

- 

KONTA 3-1 HSIEH: Hsieh is on the board, and gets a sympathetic round of applause from the audience. Now she has to grit her teeth and face that sizzling Konta serve again.

- 

KONTA 3-0 HSIEH: The British number one is really not hanging about here. Eurosport expert Mary Pierce says, with understatement: "Jo looks GREAT."

-

KONTA 2-0 HSIEH: Konta's incredible power is too much for Hsieh, who attempts a delicate little chip over and succeeds only in netting it.

- 

KONTA 1-0 HSIEH: Ouch. That's a blistering opening game from Konta, holding to love and absolutely belting that serve down.

10:10 

It's Konta to serve.

- 

Decent round of applause for the players. It's a warm day, with a bit of a breeze.

10:00 

The players are out, and there is a scattering of people in each stand. Always quiet this time of the morning at Roland Garros.

- 

Jo Konta enjoyed her practice on Chatrier earlier on this morning - will she respond well to the big occasion?
