Defending champion Andy Murray sauntered into the third round of Wimbledon with an emphatic straight-sets victory over the flamboyant Dustin Brown.

The world number one showed no signs that he is being troubled by a hip problem which was a concern ahead of the tournament, coasting to a 6-3 6-2 6-2 win on Centre Court.

Brown lived up to his reputation as a great entertainer, but his casual approach made life far too easy for the top seed, who needed only an hour and 36 minutes to set up a meeting with Fabio Fognini.

Murray lost only 14 points on serve and returned superbly, while the attacking Brown, who raced to the net at every opportunity, never looked like pulling off a repeat of his shock triumph over Rafael Nadal on the same court two years ago.
