British teenagers Ben Draper, Ewan Moore and Jodie Burrage made it through to the second round of the respective juniors' competitions at Wimbledon.

Cobham's Draper, 17, beat American Olukayode Ayeni 6-0 6-7 (7-4) 7-5 in the boys' singles.

Ayrshire's Moore, 18, beat Turkey's Ergi Kirkin 6-2 6-3 to join Draper in the next round.

Hindhead's Burrage, 17, progressed in the girls' competition by overcoming American Caty McNally 6-4 3-6 6-1.

Elsewhere there was disappointment for Katie Swan, seeded 12th in the draw, who retired with injury in the first set of her first-round match against Mariam Bolkvadze.

Bristol-born Swan made her grand slam debut at Wimbledon last week, losing in the first round of the ladies' singles to Timea Babos in straight sets.

The 17-year-old trailed 6-5 against Georgia's Bolkvadze, having just had her serve broken, before she called for the trainer for advice on a shin problem and subsequently retired.

"I've been struggling with this injury for a few weeks and have been managing it," Swan told BBC Points West.

Swan explains Wimbledon retirement

"Today it was too painful and the doctor told me it would get a lot worse if I kept playing, so I stopped. There is no point taking any risks and making it worse."

Meanwhile, London's Emily Appleton, Hertfordshire's Georgina Axon and Scotland's Maia Lumsden were all knocked out of the girls' singles on Monday.

Appleton, 16, lost 6-3 6-3 to Italy's Tatiana Pieri, Axon, 17, lost in straight sets to Belgium's Lara Salden 6-1 7-5 while Lumsden, 18, was beaten 7-6 (7-3) 3-6 6-3 by Spaniard Paula Arias Manjon.

In the boys' singles Oxford's Alexis Cantor was beaten by top seed Stefanos Tsitsipas 7-6 (7-3) 7-5.
