Ruthless Murray has no time for sentiment

6:37 am on 26 June 2014

The defending Wimbledon tennis champion Andy Murray made no apologies for blasting Slovenian Blaz Rola out of the second round at Wimbledon, pointing out that he has let leads slip too often and needs to be ruthless.

The world number 5 breezed into the last 32 with a crushing 6-1 6-1 6-0 defeat of the 23-year-old, who learnt a painful lesson in what it takes to be a grand slam winner.

Despite the lopsided result Murray believes Rola, last year's American College Champion, has a bright future in the sport.

Murray will play the 27th seed Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain in the third round.

Also this morning three of the top women's seeds, Li Na, Agnieska Radwanska and Petra Kvitova all advanced to the third round.
