Day Two at the Wimbledon Championships saw both the British number ones take to the grass on another baking hot day in South London.
Elsewhere in SW19, there were former champions, world number ones, and future stars donning their white garments at the All England Club.
We’ve got everything that you need to know from Day Two of Wimbledon:
Kyle Edmund and Jo Konta through
The two British number ones cruised through their opening matches, both in straight sets. Kyle Edmund defeated Alex Bolt of Australia on Court No. 1, as Jo Konta saw off Natalia Vikhlyantseva on Court No. 2. The pair carry the bulk of Britain’s Wimbledon dreams this year after the withdrawal of Andy Murray, and could have scarcely started better.
Muguruza begins title defence convincingly
Garbiñe Muguruza began her Wimbledon title defence in commanding fashion on Centre Court, as she beat Briton Naomi Broady in two sets. The ferocious Broady put up a strong fight in the second set, and the Spaniard needed a late break to book her ticket to round two.
Nadal kicks off Wimbledon in style
The imperious world number one, Nadal will try to add to his record-extending French Open win with glory in the British capital over the next fortnight. A straight sets victory against Dudi Sela came as little surprise.
Clarke goes the distance but comes up short
In his first Grand Slam match, 19-year-old Jay Clarke went to five sets with Ernests Gulbis of Latvia, a man 80 spots higher than him in the rankings. The Derby-native dropped the final set 6-4 to seal his fate, but set himself up for a long career at the home of the Lawn Tennis Association.
Dominic Thiem retires hurt
French Open finalist Wimbledon’s seventh seed Dominic Thiem was forced to retire hurt with a back injury, meaning Marcos Baghdatis from Cyprus advanced to the next round. Thiem was struggling throughout and was 2-0 down when he was forced to quit.
No issues for Novak
Novak Djokovic got his tournament off to a perfect start with a straight-sets win over Tennys Sandgren. After finishing as runner-up at Queen’s in June, Djokovic is coming back into form at the perfect time.
