Bernard Tomic was in a close contest with American Michael Yani on the opening day of Wimbledon qualifying when rain suspended play late in the day.

The Aussie won the opening set in a tiebreak 7-6(4), but is being kept honest at 4-3 in the second set by the American world No.173.

Waiting for the winner is No.8 seed Edouard Roger-Vasselin of France who easily accounted for local hope Joshua Milton.

Tomic was beaten by Roger-Vasselin in the final round of Wimbledon qualifying last year.
