Andy Murray marched on as he brushed aside the challenge of Dustin Brown on day two of Wimbledon. Dustin was given a lesson by the reigning world number one, and he hopefully won’t forget this for a long time.

Dustin has great memories from Wimbledon, as his unorthodox style as often caught his opponents by surprise.

A few years ago, he pushed Lleyton Hewitt a step closer to retirement which was backed up a couple of years later when he dispatched Rafael Nadal, shocking the tennis world in process.

But Andy Murray was far too cool and composed to get affected by Brown’s on court theatrics, as the Brit won the game in a little over 90 minutes.

Murray’s 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 win will also send a message to the remaining competitors that for all the injury issues that he is facing, he is still good to enough to beat the best on his home turf.

“If he has a problem with his hip, I don’t want to play against him when his hip’s good,” Brown said, still seething from the Centre Court schooling he had just received from the world number one.

“Most of the guys you play, you can try to find a way where you know you can hurt them,” he explained. “But here I had the feeling that it made no difference what I did.

If I stayed back, if I attacked, if I came in, if I chipped, he pretty much had an answer for everything. There was never a stage when I could relax and say, ‘Have a breather here.’ It was just constant pressure.”

But Brown was still able to pull off some breath taking shots. He hit some shots that had many people gasping for their breath, with one particular lob being the icing on the cake.
