Murray beats Gulbis at Wimbledon

Andy Murray

Andy Murray is through to the third round of Wimbledon after beating Ernests Gulbis.

He comfortably beat his opponent in straight sets, winning 6-2 7-5 6-3 in one hour and 28 minutes.

Although the second set went pretty close, Andy was in charge throughout the encounter, showing his class.

However, it wasn't such a great day for another Brit in the tournament. Elena Baltacha crashed out of Wimbledon after losing to Kirsten Flipkens.

Elena Baltacha was the last Brit left in the women's singles contest, but was convincingly beaten 7-5 6-1 in the second round.

She had got off to a promising start by breaking Flipkens' serve to go up 3-1 in the first set.

But her serve faltered later on, and series of mistakes gave her opponent the match.
