Andy Murray win tops off successful day for British contingent at Wimbledon
Murray led a quartet of winners that also included Dan Evans, Cameron Norrie and debutant Emma Raducanu.

Another dramatic アンディマリー victory was the highlight of a largely successful day for 英国人 players at Wimbledon.

The two-time champion staged a late-night fightback under the Centre Court roof to beat German qualifier Oscar Otte 6-3 4-6 4-6 6-4 6-2 and book a third-round date with 10th seed Denis Shapovalov.

Not since Murray limped through to the quarter-finals here in 2017, before his two hip operations and what he thought would be the end of his career, had the Scot won two matches at a slam.

The noise when Murray’s final lob landed in was spine-tingling, and he said afterwards: “I enjoyed the end, the middle part not so much. What an atmosphere to play in at the end. I needed everyone’s help tonight. I played some great shots at the end to finish it but it was a tough match.”

Murray was joined in the third round by British number one ダン・エバンス who had an altogether more straightforward 6-3 6-3 6-4 victory over Dusan Lajovic and is yet to drop a set.

Evans will next face talented young American Sebastian Korda and is looking to reach the second week at Wimbledon for the first time.

彼は言った: “I don’t think I played particularly amazing tennis today, but I got through the match with decent concentration.

Dan Evans is yet to drop a set

“I found my tennis when I needed to the longer the match went on. I knew what I had to do, and that was get myself through the match however I played, give myself another good chance in the third round.”

British number two キャメロン・ノリー was a set down overnight to Frenchman Lucas Pouille in the first round but recovered well to win 6-7 (6) 7-5 6-2 7-5 and set up a clash with Australian wild card Alex Bolt.

Katie Boulter had a Centre Court date against second seed Aryna Sabalenka and came close to a huge upset before eventually going down 4-6 6-3 6-3.

“I think my first and only takeaway is that it’s definitely the best court in the world,” said the 24-year-old.

“I’d not had a chance to play on it yet, that’s my first time. I absolutely loved every minute out there. The crowd were incredible. I thought it was a really good match, one I won’t forget.”

Eighteen-year-old debutant エマ・ラドゥカヌ is flying the flag solo in the women’s draw after impressing in a 7-6 (4) 6-0 victory over Russian qualifier Vitalia Diatchenko.

The teenager looked stunned at the end, and she said: 「4月に最終的なAレベルの試験を受けました。, だから私は実際に2ヶ月前に試験に座っていました. だから今ここウィンブルドンにいるのは信じられない, it’s surreal.”

Liam Broady took the first set against ninth seed Diego Schwartzman before the Argentinian battled back to win 4-6 6-2 6-1 6-4 while Samantha Murray Sharan was beaten 6-3 6-3 by Sorana Cirstea in the first round.
