Murray smashes into third round

Andy Murray and Jarkko Nieminen meet the Queen

Andy Murray has smashed his way through to the third round of the Wimbledon Championships.

Finland's Jarkko Nieminen didn't cause the fourth seed too much trouble, with Murray winning in straight sets, 6-3 6-4 6-2.

Afterwards, the British number one was taken straight to meet the Queen - but only after wiping his hands of course as tennis can get pretty sweaty!

Murray will now face Frenchman Gilles Simon in the next round.

This was the first time that the Queen has come to Wimbledon since 1977.
