Regal Murray hurries into round two

Second seed Andy Murray was in great form on Centre Court

Andy Murray produced the kind of imperious form that has propelled him into two grand slam finals this year as he beat Taiwan’s Lu Yen-hsun 6-3 6-2 6-1 in the Wimbledon second round on Thursday.

Lu, the son of a chicken farmer, ruffled a few feathers on Centre Court when he jumped out to a 2-0 lead before extending it to 3-1 in the opening set. However, once Murray had levelled for 3-3, it did not take him long to clip his rival’s wings.

From 3-2 up in the second set, Murray won seven games on the trot as Lu struggled to find a way to keep pace with Murray’s potent ground strokes.

A Lu double fault on match point allowed Murray to hurry off court for a royal audience with the Duchess of Cornwall.
