Emma Raducanu faced France's Caroline Garcia in the second round on day two, but she was outpowered by Garcia and lost the match.

The 19-year-old was defeated 6-3 6-3 but she stayed positive when speaking after the match, saying she will continue to "embrace every single moment".

Raducanu has not won match at a Grand Slam since her incredible win at last year's US Open.

Talking after the match she said: "Caroline is a great player. I struggled to find a way through her.

"But it's OK because coming into this I didn't really have many expectations of myself."

It wasn't good news for Andy Murray either, who was beaten in four sets by American John Isner.

This is the earliest the former world number one has left the competition.

The 35-year-old won the third set to keep hope alive, but Isner - who is known for his big serves - outperformed Murray winning 6-4 7-6 (7-4) 6-7 (3-7) 6-4.

Cameron Norrie did it for the Brits and won his game to reach Wimbledon's third round.

British number one Norrie, beat Spain's Jaume Munar 6-4 3-6 5-7 6-0 6-2.

Munar looked as though he was struggling with cramp during the final two sets.

Norrie, 26, will now face American Steve Johnson.

Day four

Day four will see plenty more Brits in action.

Heather Watson will restart her second-round match against Wang Qiang, after it became too dark to continue on Tuesday night. Watson was leading 7-5 5-4.

Over on Centre Court, fellow brit Katie Boulter will face Czech Karolina Pliskova in the third round.

Rafael Nadal, who has won 22 Grand Slam titles during his career, will be hoping to make it through the next round today. Nadal faces Lithuania's Ricardas Berankis in round two.
