About this programme

Sue Barker continues this afternoon's live coverage from the All England Club, as the third Grand Slam tournament of the year, and the only one to be played on grass, continues with the second-round singles matches. Much of the attention will be on Andy Murray v Blaz Rola this afternoon, as the British number one and defending men's singles champion continues his quest to reach the final here for the third year in succession. Murray was drawn against Lu Yen-hsun at this stage last year, and while the match remained a true contest all the way through, Murray did just enough in each set to register a 6-3, 6-3, 7-5 victory to book his place in the last 32. The ladies' draw in particular was thrown wide open when Victoria Azarenka withdrew through injury and former champion Maria Sharapova surprisingly lost to the equally vociferous Michelle Larcher de Brito in straight sets, leaving the bottom half clear for some of the outsiders to make their names. Other matches include Yvonne Meusburger v Li Na, Petra Kvitova v Mona Barthel and Bernard Tomic v Tomas Berdych.
