Cori Gauff continues to shine at Wimbledon

Day three at Wimbledon followed a similar pattern to day one for 15-year-old American Cori Gauff as she followed up her first-round win over Venus Williams with another straight-sets victory, this time against Magdalena Rybarikova.

It took little over an hour for Gauff to secure her progression, the youngster winning 6-3 6-3 on Court One, becoming the youngest player to reach the last 32 at Wimbledon since Jennifer Capriati who, also at 15, reached the semi-finals in 1991.

"I'm still shocked I am even here," said Gauff, as she reflected on her latest triumph.

"I played well on pressure points, she was serving amazing. I've not been able to relax, there is so much going on.

"I believe I can beat anyone across the court."

Elsewhere in the women’s singles, Caroline Wozniacki eased into the next round but Great Britain’s Heather Watdon suffered defeat in front of her home crowd.

Novak Djokovic, meanwhile, made light work of his second-round game against Denis Kudla, producing a solid performance to win 6-3 6-2 6-2.

It’s also been announced that Andy Murray and Serena Williams will team up to compete in the mixed doubles event, with the duo set to play against Andreas Mies and Alexa Guarachi in the first round.
