Calm Under Siege, Konta Emerges from Day 3 Scuffle

Andy Murray made light work of Dustin Brown, beating the German 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 to book his berth in the third round. You need to try and block that out for sure, but then it's part of the Centre Court experience.

"She remains very calm on the court and that's a positive thing but there can be times out there when it's good to let the emotions out as well". The serve was really hard to return.

Despite missing some first serves while serving for the set, Vekic uses her biggest weapon to her advantage, Konta unable to punish the second serves that come her way. The Vekic match, when she was back-to-the-wall a couple of times and got herself out of sticky situations, you saw the determination, but also the calmness that hasn't always been there. So I'd like to think that physically I'm prepared.

She next plays what looks like a very winnable match against the 21-year-old Greek woman, Maria Sakkari, ranked 101 in the world.

It was quite unusual coming on court soon after a horrific fall while playing her semifinal with Angelique Kerber. Fittingly it was the famous forehand that broke Young for the final time in the match.

"Travelling is a little stressful for me, travelling with a baby". But overall, it's just great.

Konta celebrated with glee and relief, and a real sense that she can go far.

She, too, is into the third round after a very swift and impressive 6-0, 6-4 thumping of Anastasija Sevastova, the world No.19 from Latvia.

Sixth-seeded Johanna Konta of Britain won an epic battle at Wimbledon on Wednesday as she beat Croatia's Donna Vekic 7-6 (4), 4-6, 10-8 on Centre Court at the All England Club in London.

Davenport reached the top of the world rankings in 1998 and won Wimbledon a year later, and she believes Konta has got it in her to do the same.

Williams came from a set down to beat Wang Qiang and set up a clash with Naomi Osaka - who beat 22nd seed Barbora Strycova.

In reaching the quarter-finals of the Australian Open in January, Konta enjoyed a relatively serene path, winning each round in straight sets.

Roberto Bautista Agut defeated Peter Gojowczyk 6-2, 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 to be the first man into the third round.

Fans shielded their faces from the sun with towels, programmes and napkins as temperatures reached 29 degrees Celsius (84 degrees Fahrenheit). Frenchman Jo-Wilfred Tsonga had other problems and was visibly annoyed with flying ants swirling around him. "So it was special sometimes, it was in my nose and in my ear".

Gilles Muller outlasted Lukas Rosol 7-5, 6-7 (7-9), 4-6, 6-3, 9-7 over nearly 3¾ hours, while American Sam Querrey stopped Georgian Nikoloz Basilashvili 6-4, 4-6, 6-3, 6-3. But the No.9 seed from Japan should be wary of Sergiy Stakhovsky.
