Fourth seed Rafael Nadal progressed to the third round of Wimbledon with a dominant performance against American Donald Young, beating his 43rd-ranked opponent 6-4, 6-2, 7-5.

The Spaniard moved to the third round at Wimbledon for only the second time since he finished runner-up in 2011.

In women's tennis, five-time champion Venus Williams came back from a set down to beat China's Wang Qiang 4-6, 6-4, 6-1 on Court One. The 37-year-old American will meet Japan's Naomi Osaka in the third round.

However, two-time champion Petra Kvitova, who was playing only her third event this year after recovering from a knife attack at her home, struggled to find her touch on Court Two before losing 6-3, 1-6, 6-2 to American Madison Brengle. The Czech national committed 50 unforced errors during a match lasting one hour and 43 minutes.
