Wimbledon day three: Andy Murray provides inspiration, Nick Kyrgios takes tumble, the original Hawkeye

News
Delight for Andy Murray

Andy Murray came through another rollercoaster match under the Centre Court roof at Wimbledon, this time beating German qualifier Oscar Otte in five sets.

The Scot is still a long way short of returning to the levels which won him two Wimbledon titles, but he still provided plenty of late-night drama yet again.

Among the other Brits, Cameron Norrie and Dan Evans got through their matches, as did 18-year-old Emma Raducanu on her Wimbledon debut.

But Katie Boulter came up just short after threatening a major upset against second seed Arnya Sabalenka, Liam Broady was beaten in four by Diego Schwartzman, and Samantha Murray Sharan was also knocked out.

Here we look at some of the events on day three at Wimbledon.
