Andy Murray is through to the third round of Wimbledon, after the Brit defeated Ivo Karlovic within four sets.

Murray took out the match 7-5 6-7 6-2 7-6, with the final set going down to a tie-breaker, but the 25 year old persevered and was always looked to hold in the advantage against his opponent as he won 6-4.

While the match was won by Murray within four sets, Karlovic put up a good fight and made the Scot uncomfortable on numerous occasions. And it was the Croatian who had a hand in his own demise towards the end, double faulting to square the tie-breaker at 4-4.

Murray told the BBC after the match: "It's so challenging getting into a rhythm against a guy like that.

"Tie-breaks can be a lottery against him - you need to get your racquet on the returns and hope he makes a mistake.

Andy Murray is now through to the third round at Wimbledon.

"I thought I returned well today - I didn't get aced too many times today, and I tried to make him play as many shots as possible.

"I was hitting the ball fairly cleanly on my forehand and I came up with some good passing shots at the right time, and that got me through it."

Murray looked calm and composed throughout the match, and will now move forward to face either Marcos Baghdatis or Grigor Dimitrov in the last 32 on Saturday.

The tie lasted three hours in total, and sets Britain's big hope up with confidence as he hopes to win his first tournament on home soil.
