Great Britain's Gabriella Taylor and Maia Lumsden are into the third round of the girls' singles at Wimbledon.

Southampton-born 16-year-old Taylor defeated Tami Grende of Indonesia 6-4 6-4 in the first match on court four.

Lumsden, who defeated the second seed in round one, beat Hungary's Dalma Galfi 7-5 6-3 to reach the last 16.

But fellow Scot Isabelle Wallace, whom Lumsden would have played in round three, was beaten 6-2 5-7 8-6 by American Michaela Gordon on court 19.

It's going to be a very tough match, she knocked out the number one seed, but I'm going to bring out all my confidence on court

Gabriella Taylor on facing Spain's Paula Badosa Gibert in the third round

Taylor and Lumsden joined Katie Boulter and Joshua Sapwell in the third round of the junior event after their victories late on Tuesday.

Lumsden went into her match against Galfi on a high after defeating highly-rated youngster Catherine Cartan Bellisbegan, but the match started with both players struggling to hold serve in beating sunshine on court 16 as they each hit a series of winners.

Galfi then broke to give herself the chance to serve for the set, but let her opponent back into it and the Glaswegian 16-year-old duly took it.

The Hungarian showed her frustration early in the second, throwing her racket to the floor in disgust, and Lumsden eased to victory after another Galfi error gave her match point.

Taylor's match against Grende began with both passing up early chances to break, before Taylor found momentum after winning a lengthy sixth game.

The British youngster, who trains in Spain, broke in the next game for 4-3 and held her nerve to serve out for the set.

In the second, Taylor's powerful forehand helped her break twice to race into a 4-1 lead, but almost let the lead slip and had to save two break points in the eighth game before serving out to set up a meeting with Paula Badosa Gibert of Spain.

"I kept my confidence throughout the match," Taylor said. "But there were some unstable times where she was getting back into it.

"I was up in the second second set 4-1 but due to the ball change she served much better than I, but I held my ground and fought through.

"It's going to be a very tough match [against Badosa Gibert]. She knocked out the number one seed, but I'm going to bring out all my confidence on court."
