Britain's Watson aims for first taste of second week

Spain's Rafael Nadal celebrates

The Briton, roared on by the Centre Court crowd, was significantly more aggressive with her responses to second serves too.

Murray believes the situation at this year's Wimbledon should lead to changes.

"It was the second time I have ever made muffins in my life", Konta said.

She added: "The last few years I was struggling a little bit, not to find my game but to accept not everything was going to come as easily as when I was younger". "That just keeps my mindset quite clear, and in turn light, or that's kind of how I describe it".

"So that was in there, that she was feeling the nerves and the stress and the pressure".

"That means how they portray themselves is important; the people around them can help them see the things they ought to do to be an ambassador for their sport". Yesterday she was a set and 4-1 down. I always look at players and look at their weaknesses and if those are improved upon. "But as you saw, I had a massive battle and that just showcases the depth we have in women's tennis".

Konta has also showed signs that she may be enjoying all the attention she is getting, and a new willingness to try to use it to her advantage.

Andy Murray, from the one-time tennis backwater of Scotland; Heather Watson from the Channel Islands; Jo Konta, who spent the first half of her life in Sydney before settling in Eastbourne, and Aljaz Bedene, from Hatfield via Ljubljana.

He said: "It's good when there are more Brits around".

"But I feel very fortunate to have had the encounters that I've had in this event over the years". But making progress at Wimbledon this year, and talking about her enjoyment of a home slam, baking and ice baths, should endear her to supporters. "I was really just trying to stay as focused on what I was trying to do out there, and not necessarily get caught up in her web". I think it's obvious. SSE do more for their customers, providing access to exclusive sport and entertainment reward offers and they're giving customers the chance to win awesome experience packages to this year's already sold out event.

"It's great to be a part of personally for me". "I think there's definitely more awareness to us in this fortnight", she said.

"Just a bit overwhelmed with nerves when I first got out there, then tried to play too ideal when really I didn't need to go for so much". But I'm enjoying it and I'm doing everything I can to recover well. I'm a fan of just the show itself. It's light and something that's easy to watch, but, yeah, [Aidan Turner] is easy on the eyes.

"There you go, you've got your headline!"
