After a dramatic opening that saw Jack Draper take an opening set off world No1 Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray recover from a case of the jitters, Wimbledon returns for a second day.

Below are the pick of some of the late matches at SW19 on Tuesday.

Daniil Medvedev v Jan-Lennard Struff

The pair met as recently as the opening round of the grasscourt event in Halle, with Struff causing a shock by knocking out the Russian in straight sets. Medvedev has since had more game-time in winning the subsequent Mallorca Open, also on grass, but has never made it past the third round here.

Cameron Norrie v Lucas Pouille

The British No2 is seeded for the first time at a Grand Slam after his run to the final at Queen’s. In the wake of that, he argued the slightly slower grass at Wimbledon would even suit his game better. Pouille should provide a stern test as a former No10 player and previous Wimbledon quarter-finalist.

Emma Raducanu v Vitalia Diatchenko

The 18-year-old Brit Raducanu is making her debut in the main draw of a Grand Slam after receiving a wildcard having recently finished her final year at school, including A Levels in maths and economics.

Born in Toronto, she was brought to London by her parents aged two and was a go-karter in her earlier years.
