Wimbledon day three: Djokovic, Gauff and Auger-Aliassime sail through as Edmund exits – video

Cori Gauff, 15, showed her stunning first-round victory over Venus Williams was no fluke as she outclassed Magdaléna Rybáriková to reach the third round at Wimbledon.

Novak Djokovic’s quest for a fifth Wimbledon title also gained momentum as he scythed down unseeded American Denis Kudla, and teenage sensation Felix Auger-Aliassime progressed after beating France’s Corentin Moutet.

Meanwhile, Kyle Edmund crashed out after surrendering a two-set lead to Fernando Verdasco in a marathon encounter – and fellow Brit Heather Watson also failed to advance after defeat to Anett Kontaveit.

Former world No 1 Karolína Plíšková, who warmed up for Wimbledon by winning the title at Eastbourne, continued her good form on grass with a win over Monica Puig to set up a clash with Hsieh su-Wei, who earlier beat Kirsten Flipkens.
