We are packing away the live text for the evening, folding it away next to Rufus the Hawk's hood and the Venus Rosewater Dish in the Centre Court safe.

It will be back out fresh, clean and sparkling with wit when Aimee Lewis gets hold of it at 10:00 BST tomorrow.

See you there.

Review of the day

Time for a quick look at the biggest stories of the day on the BBC Sport website:

Andy Murray was short of his best, but still had too much for Mikhail Kukushkin,

winning in straight sets in the Centre Court heat.

British number one Heather Watson returned to win the one remaining set of

her match against 32nd seed Caroline Garcia.

Aljaz Bedene and James Ward became

the third and fourth British men into the second round.

BBC Sport

But Wimbledon 2Day has not even started yet.

The best action and chat from the day is coming up in one punchy little package, presented by Claire Balding, and with expert punditry from Tim Henman and Martina Navratilova.

Tune into BBC Two or click on the live coverage tab on this very page.

So who have we still out on court?

Berdych and Chardy? Yep. Delicately poised at one set all and 5-5 in the third.

Highly rated young American Madison Keys and Switzerland's Stefanie Voegele? Present. And Keys is in a spot of bother after losing the first set on a tie-break.

Jiri Vesley and Paolo Lorenzi? Still slogging with Vesely having taken the first two sets on tie-breaks. The winner plays James Ward next.

Jonathan Lansana: And another GB tennis player through to Round 2 !! Great match & great job from James Ward !!!

Matt McGlone: 4 British men in Round 2 of Wimbledon? I can't cope! Well done all and Heather Watson too! #backthebrits

Aidan Williams: Five in the next round! Jolly good show ladies and gentlemen!

On James Ward's victory

Jamie Baker

Former British Davis Cup player on BBC TV

"His composure and attitude to that match in the end was superb. He was too mentally tough for his opponent."

Game, set and match

Ward 6-7 6-2 6-4 3-6 Vanni

Good news for a Brit

We have another day to slot in alongside Super Saturday in Britain's sporting week.

This is surely Tremendous Tuesday as James Ward joins Liam Broady, Andy Murray and Aljaz Bendene in the second round of the men's, on the same day that Heather Watson turfed out seeded Caroline Garcia to make the same stage of the women's draw.

Sam Gosling: Well done Aljaz Bedene. Fantastic win by the British number 2. #BackTheBrits

Andrew Priestley: Great victory for Aljaz Bendene against the very experienced Radek Stepanek. Great to see so many Brits in the 2nd Round.

Unprepared Eugenie

Eugenie Bouchard

Eugenie Bouchard was knocked out in the first round at Wimbledon as one of the biggest stars of the grand slam 12 months ago became the first big-name casualty of this year's tournament.

Canadian Bouchard marched through to the 2014 final, where Petra Kvitova denied her the title, but lost 7-6 (7/3) 6-4 to China's Duan Ying-Ying on Court Three.

"I felt very unprepared for this match but I wanted to play no matter what. After Eastbourne we did testing and I've got a grade two tear in my abs.

"It was probably not smart to play here but I couldn't pass on Wimbledon. I'm going to take some time to heal and maybe not think about tennis for a little bit and then get back to it."

Sanj: I just hope the Bedene win gets as much coverage as Broady's did and James Ward's will. He's a Brit, Get behind him.

Chris Hood: In 30 minutes we could have FIVE Brits in the second round. Not sure if that's happened since players swapped trousers for shorts.

Chris, we have had a little look back already. In 2006 Britain actually had five players into the second round of the men's singles alone. Jamie Delgado, Richard Bloomfield, Martin Lee, Tim Henman and a young Andy Murray were the names for your pub quiz answer.

Rob T: Aljaz Bedene looks like a good player. Looks a lot younger than he actually is!

Game, set and match

Stepanek 5-7 6-1 6-4 3-6 4-6 Bedene

Good news for a Brit

That is one way to ingratiate yourself with the Great British public.

Aljaz Bedene serves out in nerveless style, converting the second of three match points with an ace cleaved clean down the centre.

There is a crush of spectators wanting to grab a snap with him after he makes his way off court to rapturous applause.

Aljaz Bedene

Stepanek 5-7 6-1 6-4 3-6 4-5 Bedene

Good news for a Brit

Hang on a jiffy!

Aljaz Bedene has only gone and broken Radek Stepanek's serve at the death of the fifth set.

He serves for the second round next...

Ward 6-7 6-2 6-4 2-3 Vanni

Good news for a Brit

James Ward has broken serve in the fourth - suddenly he can sniff the second-round stable.

Italian opponent Luca Vanni is fading fast.

Simple start for champion

Petra Kvitova

Defending champion Petra Kvitova, who racked up a straight-sets win over Kiki Bertens, goes on to face Japan's Kurumi Nara or Magda Linette of Poland in round two.

"I was very nervous but when I was standing on the court, the people were clapping, the atmosphere was brilliant," said the 24-year-old.

"I am really glad how I played as well. Nerves are important, they are healthy. I like them. I was sick a few days ago but still played very well."

Berdych 6-2 6-7 3-2 Chardy

Tomas Berdych - whose name my internal monologue repeats in the style of Street Fighter 2's Chun-Li announcing her "flying bird kick" - has had a bit of bother out on Court One.

Jeremy Chardy has nabbed the second set and suddenly an early evening stroll has become less of a cakewalk.

Nothing to report of any note from the early stages of the current sets in the matches involving British men.

Aljaz Bedene is level pegging at 2-2 in the fifth and deciding set against Radek Stepanek.

James Ward is 2-1 down but serving, two sets to one up on Luca Vanni.

Been out all day? Back home after work or enjoying the sunshine? Well you have missed a lot so far on day two at Wimbledon with more still to come.

Here are some of the top stories:

Murray mania: Britain's Andy Murray begins his Wimbledon campaign with a win over Mikhail Kukushkin as the Centre Court temperature reaches 41C.

Mixed success for Brits: British number one Heather Watson beats Caroline Garcia in the first round at Wimbledon, but Laura Robson suffers defeat.

No problems: Rafa Nadal and Roger Federer ease through.

Caroline Wozniacki has whistled through the second set against Saisai Zheng in 37 minutes.

The fifth seed departs to leave Centre Court done for the day. There is already a man sweeping the baseline with a giant hoover contraption.

Liam Broady on Twitter: "Up for singles tomorrow at 11:30 on the colosseum that is court 3. Are court tickets needed to get on?? #MoreSeatsMoreNoise #Excited"

Ward 6-7 6-2 6-4 Vanni

Good news for a Brit

But might James Ward beat Aljaz Bedene to the punch?

The Londoner, ranked fourth nationally, has served out the third set against Luca Vanni.

James Ward

Game and fourth set

Stepanek 5-7 6-1 6-4 3-6 Bedene

Good news for a Brit

Aljaz Bedene has 11 years of youth on Radek Stepanek.

Is that going to be the deciding factor in a fifth set? That is where we are heading.

We have not had three British men into the second round since 2006. With Andy Murray and Liam Broady already there we are looking at a minor piece of history if Bedene can pull through.

Broady handed early start

In addition to Heather Watson, Britain's Liam Broady is also in action on Wednesday, taking on 16th seed David Goffin in the second round. He's first up on court number three from 11:30 BST.

Stepanek 5-7 6-1 6-4 3-5 Bedene

Good news for a Brit

And the tide is turning red, white and blue over on court eight as well.

Aljez Bendene, suddenly as British as a bank holiday on the M25 to us all, is serving for the fourth set against Radek Stepanek.

That is some decent gravel to get back into the match.

Ward 6-7 6-2 4-3 Vanni

Chris Bevan

BBC Sport at Wimbledon

"We've just had a brief Carry On moment here on court 12 - a lady who sounds a lot like Barbara Windsor loudly proclaimed "Ooooh James" as Ward dumped an attempted drop shot into the net.

"His opponent Luca Vanni still looks flakier than a 99 cone, though, and the Italian's inconsistency has helped Ward protect that early break he got in set three. Still, he has got more work to do to see this one out as the shadows lengthen across the court."

Ward 6-7 6-2 4-3 Vanni

Good news for a Brit

James Ward does do pretty. When he wins it is likely to be a mucky dogfight of match.

That is the way it is heading on court 12.

The Londoner is a break up in the third set against Luca Vanni. A winnable second-round match against either Jiri Vesely or Paolo Lorenzi awaits if he can see off Vanni.

Game, set and match

Monfils 6-4 6-4 7-5 Carreno Busta

Allez le Monf!

The most entertaining Frenchman since Marcel Marceau is into the second round as Gael Monfils polishes off Pablo Carreno Busta in straight sets.

He has never been beyond the third round at the All England.

He is around for a good time not a long time. Catch him while you can.

1 Tommy Haas (Ger) vs Milos Raonic (Can) [7]

Game and third set

Stepanek 5-7 6-1 6-4 Bedene

Bad news for a Brit

Radek Stepanek is chipping away and is pretty close to sculpting a second-round spot out on court eight.

British number two Aljaz Bedene will need to win over five sets to make the next stage.

Sunbathing fans at Wimbledon

They will need the chewing gum scraper to clear out some of the desiccated spectator remains come closing time.

Still a rotisserie hot day out there.

Ward 6-7 6-2 0-1 Vanni

Chris Bevan

BBC Sport at Wimbledon

"Luca Vanni's lack of pedigree on grass - he had only played and lost two matches before Wimbledon qualifying, where he also lost - always looked encouraging for James Ward when the Italian replaced the injured David Ferrer as a lucky loser in round one.

"And so it proved in the second set, with Vanni peering suspiciously at the green surface after being left befuddled by a bounce. His serve deserted him too, and Ward took full advantage to level the match. He is enjoying himself in the evening sunshine, and so are the noisy crowd on court 12."

Ward has just broken at the start of the third set.
