Ahead of what is likely to be another heated Ashes series, James Anderson says he has cooled his own fiery approach.


no pushover

"He made the final a couple of weeks ago in Halle, plays well on the grass," says Andy Murray of his looming third-round opponent Andreas Seppi, the 25th seed. "He's capable of playing some top tennis."

10th seed for a reason?

Rafael Nadal says he has no complaints about his lowly seeding at Wimbledon, and he is living down to his position at the moment. The former champion has just lost the first set of his second-round match to Dustin Brown 7-5.

Andy Murray may face Borna Coric - who's into a fifth set against Andreas Seppi - in round three and he won't find self-doubt in the Croatian, who has beaten him and Nadal before. "My best memories... they pushed me to play at my best," he told ESPN recently. Find out what makes Coric tick

Wow, ward

Andy Murray may have been quicker but James Ward produces another British victory on Court No.2 with a 6-2, 7-6(4), 3-6, 6-3 against world No.45 Kiri Vesely.

Murray's through

Andy Murray makes no mistake with a quick 6-1, 6-1, 6-4 victory against Robin Haase. "He started a bit slow," said the world No.3 afterwards, but the credit is due to the home favourite, who dictated the match and earned himself a good rest after a relatively early start.

upset alert

James Ward wins the second set, too, on a close tiebreak, coming through it against world No.45 Jiri Vesely 7-4. If he sees this match through, with their rankings 66 places apart, it would surely qualify as a giantkilling, of sorts.

Cruise control

Andy Murray takes the opener against Robin Haase 6-1 in just 20 minutes. He barely broke a sweat and there will surely be more to come from the Dutchman in the second set. Follow it live on CourtCast
