Laura Robson had few problems navigating her way past Colombian Mariana Duque-Marino to book her place in the third round of Wimbledon.

The 19 year old caused a major shock in the first round when she knocked out tenth seed Maria Kirilenko and there was a weight of expectation placed on her shoulders as she opened up day five on centre court.

With rain causing plenty of disruptions across the various courts of SW19, Robson was the centre of attention but she showed few signs of nerves as she completed a 6-4 6-1 victory after just one hour and 13 minutes.

"It's a big win for me. Any match on Centre Court is a big one and it was a great atmosphere out there," Robson told the BBC. "I was kind of feeling nervous, but luckily I've played on Centre a couple of times before. I'm really excited. I'm going to play doubles this afternoon, if it stops raining, and get ready for tomorrow."

Robson made a slightly nervous start as she was broken in her second service game as Duque-Marino, who after letting two chances slip by, was able to punch a backhand volley for a winner to give her the advantage.

The British number one would reply instantly as she forced her way to deuce before fizzing a backhand and then coming up with the perfect passing shot to make sure she got straight back on level terms at 2-2.

Robson would soon gain another break of serve and was presented with the chance to serve for the first set at 5-3. However, there was suddenly a bit of tension in her shots and Duque-Marino managed to force a mistake as the Brit dumped a forehand into the net.

The 23 year old looked on course to force a tie break but Robson responded superbly well and once again carved out more break points. Duque-Marino would then volley into the net to hand the Brit the first set.

Robson was now feeling extremely confident and after comfortably holding serve she would unleash a massive forehand to earn a break in the second set and move 2-0 up.

Duque-Marino would manage to hold her next service game but Robson would once again put her under extreme pressure at 4-1 as she managed to secure three break points. One was lost with a missed lob but a weary shot would go long from the Colombian and another break was earned.

Robson then comfortably held her serve to love as she booked her place in the third round with a confident performance that had Centre Court erupt in rapture.
