Wimbledon winner Andy Murray would relish joining different type of Superstars — Andy Murray's standing as an international athlete ought to be established beyond doubt - certainly in tennis he is universally respected and admired - but it is a little odd, still, to hear commentators occasionally say that he has "finally arrived" in the hearts of fans.

Heather Watson pushes Serena Williams to limit before bowing out in thriller — Heather Watson observed with some cause during a good run of results last season that anyone can beat anyone on their day in the modern game. She can hardly have imagined she would almost prove the point in three sets of unimaginable drama against Serena Williams on Centre Court at Wimbledon.

Rafael Nadal looks a spent force and the evidence runs beyond Wimbledon — Related: Wimbledon 2015: day five - live! Is Rafael Nadal finished at the highest level in tennis - or at least at Wimbledon? It would be a brave or foolish critic to retire a matador - because that is what he has been for more than a decade, the consummate Spanish executioner.

Andy Murray and James Ward advance at Wimbledon to fuel feelgood factor — Andy Murray and James Ward are through to the third round at Wimbledon, a resurgence of sorts for British tennis given the last time two of its men advanced this far was 13 years ago when Tim Henman and Greg Rusedski were contenders, although it is hardly an occasion to get out the bunting and brass bands just yet.

Wimbledon 2015: Heather Watson undaunted by double Williams challenge — For Heather Watson the prospect of facing her childhood idol Serena Williams for the first time in the third round at Wimbledon on Friday would appear to be no more daunting than the likely consequences of an unlikely victory there: a fourth-round match against her sister, Venus.

Andy Murray overpowers Robin Haase to cruise into Wimbledon third round — Andy Murray, in the form of his life this summer, put a blip in the first round behind him here on Thursday to embarrass Robin Haase out of Wimbledon in less than an hour and a half. It was a breathtaking exhibition of focussed skill and invention, to which the Dutchman had hardly a single worthwhile answer.

Andy Murray: ‘They tried to coach me but I missed the signals’ — Andy Murray revealed on Wednesday night he has been coached from the stands during a match - although he was totally unaware of it until afterwards. On the eve his second match at these championships - against Robin Haase first-up on Court No 1 on Thursday - the Scot has entered the rolling debate on coaches illegally signalling tactics and advice to their players and, typically, he comes at it from an odd angle.

Novak Djokovic eases past Jarkko Nieminen at Wimbledon in straight sets — Novak Djokovic did no more than he had to in beating Jarkko Nieminen in an hour and 32 minutes in his second match of the fortnight, and there is no compelling case to be made that Bernard Tomic can stop the best player in the world in the next round.

Andy Murray starts Wimbledon with straight sets Mikhail Kukushkin win — Andy Murray is through to the second round at Wimbledon - but he will be mildly concerned that, for 20 minutes against Mikhail Kukushkin on Centre Court, he utterly lost his way before winning 6-4, 7-6 (3), 6-4 in two hours and 12 minutes.

Rafael Nadal offers timely reminder of talents in win over Thomaz Bellucci — If his opponents imagine Rafael Nadal is a reduced force at Wimbledon because of his poor run of form on clay this summer, the Spaniard reminded them on Tuesday that the weapons that won him two titles are still functioning efficiently.
