Rafael Nadal got his Wimbledon campaign underway against Brazilian Thomaz Belluci in London's sweltering heat this afternoon.

The 2008 and 2010 winner hasn't advanced past the fourth round since 2011, but started brightly today with a 6-4 victory in the first set.

Nadal currently leads Belluci 2-0 with an early break in the second set, and could meet British number one Andy Murray in the fourth round this year.

Reigning champion Petra Kvitova began the defence of her Wimbledon title in emphatic style as she thrashed Holland's Kiki Bertens in straight sets.

Kvitova lost just one point on her serve during the contest, which came with a double fault in the final game, as she beat Bertens 6-1 6-0 in 35 minutes.

It was the Czech's first competitive match on grass this season but she showed few signs of rust on Centre Court and will face either Japan's Kurumi Nara or Poland's Magda Linette in round two.

British youngster Edmund dumped out in straight sets

Kyle Edmund's wait to break into the world's top 100 goes on after the young Briton slipped out of Wimbledon, with Alexandr Dolgopolov victorious 7-6 (7/4) 6-1 6-2.

Britain's world number 101 Edmund was just unable to edge his ranking to double-figures after reaching the second round at the French Open.

The 20-year-old would certainly have achieved that big goal by reaching the second round at SW19, but was unable to overcome his Ukrainian opponent.

Dolgopolov dumped Rafael Nadal out of this year's Queen's Club, and continued that fine form by easing past Edmund without issue.

Edmund's third first-round defeat in a row at Wimbledon leaves him still waiting for that maiden senior victory at London's grand slam tournament.

The world number three will be on Centre Court to play world number 58 Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan.

He arrives in SW19 in what many - including himself - have described as the best form of his life.

Bookmakers have made him the second favourite to go all the way after he conquered a fourth title at Queen's last week in impressive fashion.

Following his wedding to long-time girlfriend Kim Sears in April, Murray, 28, has declared that "marriage works".

Fans gripped by Murray mania will be giving their support inside the All England Club or watching on from the big screen on Murray Mound and TV sets in homes and workplaces up and down the country.
