WIMBLEDON LOGO STORY: Top seed Ash Barty hurried into the Wimbledon third round on Thursday (July 4), dispatching Alison van Uytvanck 6-1 6-3 in 54 minutes on the All England Club's distant showcourt Two.

Barty is the woman of the moment having just won her first Grand Slam at the French Open.

Sixth seed Petra Kvitova beat France's Kristina Mladenovic 7-5 6-2 to move into the third round as well, despite a couple of hiccups in the first set.

The Czech, coming back to the tour after recovering from an arm injury, saved three set points in the opening set before stepping up her game to wrap up the second set in 31 minutes.

Unseeded Briton Dan Evans overcame the challenge of Georgia's 18th seed Nikoloz Basilashvili 6-3 6-2 7-6(2) to win on Court Two in his 100th tour-level match.

Fellow Briton Cameron Norrie did not fare as well, falling 6-4 6-4 6-0 to Japanese eighth seed Kei Nishikori in less than two hours, setting up a third-round clash with Steve Johnson.

On the female side, Britain's Johanna Konta beat Czech Republic's Katerina Siniakova 6-3 6-4 to set up a third-round clash with American ninth seed Sloane Stephens.

But yet another Briton fell as second seed Roger Federer equalled Jimmy Connors's Open-era record of 17 appearances in the third round with a 6-1 7-6(3) 6-2 win over Jay Clarke.

The Swiss maestro, seeking his ninth Wimbledon title, won 31 net points and fired 46 winners past the 20-year-old.

Another big name, defending champion Angelique Kerber, was dumped out in the second round by American Lauren Davis who won 2-6 6-2 6-1.

The German baseliner, seeded fifth, was broken seven times by Davis, who won 14 points at the net and hit 45 winners.

Serena Williams dropped the opening set against 18-year-old Slovenian qualifier Kaja Juvan before rallying to a 2-6 6-2 6-4 victory.

The American former world number one looked comfortable at 5-2 in the third before a late fightback from Juvan was quelled by the 23-times Grand Slam champion who will meet Julia Goerges, whom she beat in last year's semi-finals, in the third round.

Double Wimbledon champion Rafa Nadal quelled the challenge of mercurial Australian Nick Kyrgios, winning 6-3 3-6 7-6(5) 7-6(3) in a thrilling second-round contest on Centre Court.

And finally, Andy Murray made a winning return to the All England Club, after hip surgery in January had threatened to end his career, when he teamed up with Pierre-Hugues Herbert to beat Marius Copil and Ugo Humbert 4-6 6-1 6-4 6-0.
