World No.3 Andy Murray put on his best performance of the Championships to dominate Ernests Gulbis in the second round of Wimbledon. The local favourite didn’t disappoint as he committed only five unforced errors for a 6-2, 7-5, 6-3 victory in 88 minutes.
Fueled by criticism by his Latvian opponent, the Scot came out firing in all cylinders. Having saved break points in his first service game, the 22 year-old was never troubled after that as he hit 11 aces and won 59 of 71 service points.
Murray who is making his fourth appearance at Wimbledon, reached the quarter-finals last year. Two weeks ago he became the first local to win Queen’s Club since 1938.
Murray will now face No.30 seed Viktor Troicki, who battled to a 6-7(5), 6-0, 1-6, 6-3, 7-5 win over Spaniard Daniel Gimeno-Traver.
