DOLGOPOLOV 3-6 6-1 6-6(8-6) 6-2 BERDYCH: Tomas Berdych leaves Court 17 with a disappointed shrug after being well beaten by the Ukrainian, who reaches the third-round for the first time since 2012, finishing the match with two stunning winners.

"Coming on court, I didn't know how to play this match," says Dolgopolov, who won in five sets just yesterday in R1. "My level is not the problem -- my injuries are usually the problem!"

DOLGOPOLOV 3-6 6-1 6-6(8-6) 4-2 BERDYCH: Dolgopolov has a first break of the fourth set, whipping another of those superb cross-court backhands past Berdych.

He will serve to take a commanding 5-2 lead and the Ukrainian is growing in confidence. As it stands, Berdych has made 25 more errors than his opponent...

DOLGOPOLOV 3-6 6-1 6-6(7-5) BERDYCH: No.15-seed recovers from 6-2 down to 6-5 on his serve but Dolgopolov holds his nerve brilliantly, going with a wicked forehand slice approach and then coming in to convert the volley and take the third set.

Berdych uses the break to have more treatment on his back. The Czech's first serve percentage in that set was just 37% and he will need to do better in the fourth.

18.18 

DOLGOPOLOV 3-6 6-1 6-6(4-1) BERDYCH: Dolgopolov is a fun player to watch. He marches to a 4-1 lead, courtesy of a couple of stunning backhand winners, the first while he is reaching and off balance. But a foot fault leaves the breaker at 4-2 on the changeover... Tense.

DOLGOPOLOV 3-6 6-1 6-6 BERDYCH: Easy hold for the Ukrainian and a tie-break it is...

18.11 

DOLGOPOLOV 3-6 6-1 5-6 BERDYCH: Tomas Berdych edges ahead again with a dominant love hold, leaving Dolgopolov serving to keep the third set alive. No breaks yet in this set though and the Ukrainian has served so well, so a tie-break is probably beckoning...

17.24 

In the blink of eye, Alexandr Dolgopolov has levelled it against Tomas Berdych, taking the second set 6-1. Game on.

16.55 

DOLGOPOLOV 3-6 BERDYCH: Dolgopolov squanders a crucial break point and Berdych takes advantage, wrapping up the first set at the second time of asking with a big first serve that his opponent cannot return.

16.41 

DOLGOPOLOV 2-5 BERDYCH: Strong start from the 15th-seed, who broke Dolgopolov at the first attempt, and has raced into an early lead on Court 17.

The Ukrainian will serve keep this first set alive.
