London: Defending champion Andy Murray dropped just two games as he overwhelmed Blaz Rola of Slovenia to reach the third round at Wimbledon on Wednesday.

Murray trounced the 92nd-ranked Slovenian 6-1, 6-1, 6-0 on Court 1 in a commanding performance as he seeks to become the first British player to retain the Wimbledon crown in 77 years.

Murray broke eight times, saved the only three break points against him and had only 13 unforced errors.

The 23-year-old Rola, playing in his first Wimbledon, has been playing mainly on the lower-tier Challenger Circuit and has very little grass-court experience.
