British wildcard Tara Moore became the fourth Briton to progress into the second round of Wimbledon, after beating Alison Van Uytvanck in straight sets. The world no. 227 clinched her first ever Grand Slam win against an opponent ranked exactly 100 places above her in the WTA rankings, sealing a 6-3 6-2 victory on the second day of competition at SW19.

Hong Kong-born Moore, 23, joins Andy Murray, Dan Evans and 772nd ranked wild card Marcus Willis in the next round.

Johanna Konta was poised to join her before rain forced the covers out in her opening round match against Monica Puig. The British no. 1 will continue on Wednesday (29 June), holding a 6-1 2-1 lead. Murray, meanwhile, booked his place after a 6-2 6-3 win over fellow Briton Liam Broady, and will meet Yen Hsun Lu in his next match.

Aljaz Bedene was denied the chance to join them after suffering defeat to seventh seed Richard Gasquet. The British no. 2 had opportunities to haul back the Frenchman back but was only able to take one of seven break points presented to him and fell to a 6-3 6-4 6-3 defeat. Another British hopeful in 17-year-old wild card Katie Swan suffered an early exit after defeat to Hungary's Timea Babos.

Heather Watson's first-round tie against Germany's Annika Beck has been moved to Wednesday due to the rain that disrupted afternoon sessions.

Elsewhere, Stanislas Wawrinka was made to work for his place in the second round against American teenager Taylor Fritz. The fourth seed dropped the third set versus his 18-year-old opponent but sealed a 7-6 (7-4) 6-1 6-7 (2-7) 6-4 and will meet Juan Martin del Petro in the second round. Nick Kyrgios joined him in the second round after victory over Radek Stapanek.

Defending champion Serena Williams laboured to victory in her opening match against 148th-ranked Amra Sadikovic. While the world no.1 clinched victory in straight sets, she struggled on serve and almost allowed her opponent back into the contest before sealing a 6-2 6-4 win.
