Andy Murray overcame a spirited challenge from Daniel Gimeno-Traver under Wimbledon’s Centre Court roof to win their first-round encounter 4-6 6-3 6-0 6-0 last night.

With rain bringing an early end to play elsewhere on the opening day, all eyes were on the fourth seed, who was expected to breeze through against Spain’s 11th best player.

However, Gimeno-Traver had other ideas and made Murray’s life distinctly uncomfortable for a set and a half before the Scot, who had struggled in his only previous match under the roof two years ago, turned the contest around in style, reeling off 15 games in a row.
