Wimbledon, London:

Andy Murray cruised into the second round of Wimbledon on Tuesday by brushing aside Nikolay Davydenko 6-1, 6-1, 6-4.

On a day when Petra Kvitova and Rafael Nadal both had poor starts before recovering for victories on Centre Court, Murray took control from the start and never looked back against the former third-ranked Russian. Murray broke Davydenko six times and never dropped his own serve.

As always, Murray is facing high expectations from the home crowd that he can become the first British man to win Wimbledon since Fred Perry in 1936.

Davydenko lost in the first round for the second year in a row.
