Andy Murray progressed into the third round of Wimbledon today in ruthless fashion.
The British number one went through his shot-making repertoire to defeat Latvia’s Ernests Gulbis 6-2 7-5 6-3 in just one hour and 28 minutes.
It was an impressive performance from Murray, who stepped up a gear from his unconvincing first-round win against American Robert Kendrick.
It was a timely one too on a day when Elena Baltacha went out of the women’s singles to leave Murray flying the British flag at these championships.
Murray said: “I served really great. I didn’t give him many opportunities at all. I served a lot better than the first match.
“I had a few nerves and tension in the first match but today I was a bit more relaxed and it was good.
“I was very happy with the way I played. If I serve like that for the rest of the tournament I’ll have a good chance.”
