KYLE HANGING ON.

A GREY day at Queen's turned into a black one for British tennis with the entire singles contingent on course for a first round exit.

Only the rain saved British No. 1 Kyle Edmund (below) - a set down against top-seed Stefanos Tsitsipas, and hanging on with serve at 3-3 and 30-30 in the second.

James Ward and Cameron Norrie headed for the exit on Monday, even before Tuesday's washout. And Dan Evans' hopes of carrying his grass court form into the Fever-Tree Championships hit the juggernaut that is Stan Wawrinka. It took the Swiss just an hour and 12 minutes to see off his 63rd-ranked opponent 6-3, 6-4. Wild-card Jay Clarke lost 7-6 6-1 to Lucas Pouille of France, leaving Edmund as the last man standing, albeit hanging on by a thread.
