    Roberto Bautista Agut the match winner in a quality, entertaining, emotional 5 setter. Very, very well done Andy Murray. B.

    Oh Wow, Andy takes the 4th set too in another tie-breaker ! 7 - 4 Playing better. Amazing. Never dreamed he could last to 5 sets. B.

    Andy Murray loses the first two sets 6-4 to Agut .. obviously hindered by that hip but with many flashes of the old brilliance. Andy then wins the 3rd set in a tie-break .. showing great grit and determination as ever ! What a cheer from the crowd.

    But better news with Dan Evans The 28-year-old beat fellow qualifier Tatsuma Ito 7-5 6-1 7-6 (10-8) of Japan, throwing his racquet in joy at the end. In the womens .. British number two Katie Boulter showed her quality to win the Australian Open's first final-set tiebreak and beat Russian 2015 semi-finalist Ekaterina Makarova. Boulter, 22, thought she had won after reaching seven in the decider - before realising it was the first to 10. She composed herself to clinch a 6-0 4-6 7-6 (10-6) win. H. Watson and H. Dart go out.

    Disappointing .. Kyle Edmund out in 3 straight sets to T. Berdych. 3-6 0-6 5-7 Andy on next and likely to lose too cos of that hip. B.

    Britain's Andy Murray and Kyle Edmund have been handed tricky opening matches at the Australian Open. Murray, ranked 230th in the world as he continues his comeback from hip surgery, faces Spanish 22nd seed Roberto Bautista Agut. Edmund, who reached the semi-finals last year, meets former Wimbledon finalist Tomas Berdych. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/tennis/46808399

    Digitalising 35mm slides

    Must admit that is similar to how I've done it too .. holding in front of a white card .. but on a sunny windowsill. Came out quite well.

    What is meant by "amplification"..?

    Funnily enough I privately asked Karyo to explain this to me earlier, which he kindly did. I've been here many years and avidly read the model threads, but sadly there's so much I still don't know/understand. I've read through 'learners' areas too. Cheers for this thread. BL
