Andy Murray pulled off the most emphatic Wimbledon win of his career to race into the third round

The defending champion was in sublime form on Court One, needing just an hour and 24 minutes to see off Slovenian Blaz Rola 6-1 6-1 6-0.

Murray said: “I played well. This is the first year he’s played on grass. He just came out of college and he’s broken into the top 100 so it was tough for him.

“He doesn’t have much grass-court experience but he’ll definitely keep improving because he’s got a good game.

“I just had to concentrate on my side of the net and I took care of my serve pretty well throughout the majority of the match.”

Murray had never previously dropped fewer than six games in a match at the All England 
Club, while it was his most one-sided result at a slam since losing just one game to Alberto Martin at the Australian Open in 2007.

Elsewhere, British No.5 Tara Moore wasted two gilt-edged chances against Vera Zvonareva to reach the second round for the first time, in a nervy three-set defeat to the 2010 finalist.
