British teenager Kyle Edmund lost to Uruguay's Marcel Felder in the second round of Wimbledon qualifying.

Fellow Briton Chris Eaton, 24, narrowly lost his qualifier to Estonian top seed Jurgen Zopp 7-6 (9-7) 7-6 (8-6).

Meanwhile, Lisa Whybourn won her first round match against Germany's Sarah Gronert 6-1 4-6 6-4.
