Lindsay Davenport says Wimbledon hopeful Johanna Konta is heading for the top

Konta celebrates after winning a point in her first round match at Wimbledon on Monday

With four - potentially five - British players hoping to make the second week of Wimbledon, Friday is set to be a day of mixed results, on paper at least. This crowd was expecting her to win. Kvitova has asthma and hasn't been able to work up to peak fitness levels in her inspiring comeback.

But Murray, who cruised past Dustin Brown 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 to book a third-round clash with Italy's Fabio Fognini, believes the country should aim higher than getting five or six players through.

"The public will start to engage more, the more they see of her". "If you do it, the whole match is a different situation".

British No 1 Johanna Konta has got the ability to become world No 1, according to three-time grand slam champion Lindsay Davenport. It is exactly 40 years since the last British woman won at Wimbledon: Virginia Wade.

The reason for Brengle's preoccupation with taking merely a single game?

Vesnina reached the Wimbledon semi-finals previous year, but Azarenka, a two-time Australian Open champion, extended her winning streak against the Russian to eight matches with a powerful performance. "Not a lot of my [playing] career will be relevant for Maria but, having played Boris [Becker] on Court One and felt very confident going out into the match that I could be competitive, I wasn't".

"Everyone talks about the LTA having all that money but most of it went to the men in the 1980s and '90s". We know each other really well.

The payment previous year was £37.7 million ($48.8 million), and double-digit millions have been the norm for some time.

Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal continued to advance unabated in the draw.

Now she'll have this victory to cherish, along with another one from this year that also holds some significance: Brengle beat Serena Williams at a tuneup tournament at Auckland, New Zealand, back on January 4. She's had issues with the body since, but is an ambassador for its female programme and is involved with two development initiatives. "She used it a lot today when she was in trouble", he said.

The organisers appear to have listened as the former world number one's second round match against Russian 15th seed Elena Vesnina is first up on Court Three at 11:30am (1030 GMT).

Azarenka, on the comeback trail after giving birth to son, Leo, shortly before Christmas previous year, defeated 15th seed Elena Vesnina 6-3, 6-3 as she bids to become the first player since Kim Clijsters at the 2009 US Open to win her first major tournament back after returning from maternity leave. "She is an incredible player and person".

"You get the sense that's something she's worked incredibly hard on, the discipline of staying in each point and her routine". I saw Aljaz won, too.

"At love-30 down she never panicked, she never blinked, she never had that look I've seen before where she's looking with those scared eyes".

"But people deal with those things differently, everyone has different personalities".

"If you're in a little bit of pain, but you can still run as you normally do, that doesn't affect how you play". She improves to 3-5 lifetime at Wimbledon and moves into the round of 32 at SW19 for the first time. "It is also something that I am sure is very exciting to the spectators that are coming to the Championships this year".
