Andy Murray produced the kind of imperious form that has propelled him into two grand slam finals this year as he beat Taiwan’s Lu Yen-hsun 6-3, 6-2, 6-1 in the second round of Wimbledon on Thursday.

Lu, the son of a chicken farmer, had jumped out to a 2-0 lead before extending it to 3-1 in the opening set. However, once Murray had levelled for 3-3, it did not take him long to take control of the match.

From 3-2 up in the second set, Murray won seven games on the trot as Lu struggled to find a way to keep pace with Murray’s potent groundstrokes.

A Lu double fault on match point allowed Murray to hurry off court for a royal audience with the Duchess of Cornwall.
