Top-ranked Rafael Nadal also advanced with a 6-4, 6-3, 6-4 win over Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan on Centre Court.

Nadal, aiming to add to the Wimbledon titles he landed in 2008 and 2010, said: "It's great to be out here at Wimbledon". Of course, I will love to play on Queen's.

Petra Kvitova crashed out of Wimbledon in the first round on Tuesday as the two-time champion was stunned 6-4, 4-6, 6-0 by unheralded Belarusian Aliaksandra Sasnovich.
