The 28-year-old Swede scored a brave goal to twice get past her Briton and break serve for the second time in the fourth set to tie the game.

As the roof closed in and the pair settled into the final set, Draper’s growing experience in the deciding moments of big matches showed. The Stuttgart champion kept his composure in the fifth set and lost just three points on serve the rest of the way. Ymer, meanwhile, had one poor service game – a double fault to close behind 0-40 – that gave Draper the only break he needed to break through.

The young Briton heaped praise on Murray in his post-match interview after the latter withdrew from their singles match earlier in the day.

“I wouldn’t be here without Andy,” he said. “Off the field he’s an incredible guy, so funny, so genuine, so kind and so competitive and such a champion. Thank you so much.”

Rothesay Open Nottingham champion Fearless He achieved his childhood dream by achieving his first Wimbledon win by defeating Alejandro Moro Canas 7-5, 6-4, 7-6(12) on Court 8.

The win will open up the opportunity to face seven-time champion Novak Djokovic, who will likely make his debut on one of the big show courts.

The 22-year-old Briton’s fearless display on his first appearance at the tournament saw him rack up an impressive 47 winners across three sets, never breaking once. Despite the Spaniard’s struggles in the third-set tie-break, Fearnley kept his foot on the gas and closed out the win with his sixth match point.

But, Harris’s His first main draw appearance at Wimbledon ended with a 6-4, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 defeat to world number 63 Jaume Munar.

Men’s singles champion Sailor The world number 46 made an impressive debut against Marcos Giron but was defeated 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 in two hours and 29 minutes.

Searle, who only made the switch to the men’s game this year, showed once again that she can compete at the highest level – especially on grass. Her big serve provided an advantage – she hit 17 aces in the match – but her 43 unforced errors compared to Giron’s 26 ultimately made the difference.

Jubb’s Brazilian Thiago Seyboth Wild’s hopes of a first Wimbledon victory were dashed after an epic fight that ended 1-6, 3-6, 7-6(6), 6-4, 7-5.

The 24-year-old from Hull was two sets ahead and appeared to be relaxed before the first rain delay. Jubb missed his only match point opportunity in the third-set tie-break before losing a crucial set with a forehand that went less than a millimetre from the tramline.

Boosting confidence, Seyboth Wild pulled away from the Briton and despite missing his first four match points before falling behind in the fifth round, closed out the win inside four hours.

Choinski He lost 7-5, 4-6, 2-6, 7-5, 6-2 to world number 37 Luciano Darderi in a thrilling five-set match that lasted just over three and a half hours.
