Andy Murray pulled off the most emphatic Wimbledon win of his career to race into the third round on Wednesday.

The defending champion was in sublime form on Court One, needing just an hour and 24 minutes to see off Slovenian Blaz Rola 6-1 6-1 6-0.

Murray had never previously dropped fewer than six games in a match at the All England Club, while it was his most one-sided result at a slam since losing one game to Alberto Martin at the Australian Open in 2007.
