Andy Murray defeats Jan Hajek in Wimbledon first round

 Wimbledon 2010

Wimbledon, London
June 22, 2010 

Fourth seed Andy Murray advanced to the second round of Wimbledon 2010 comfortably defeating Jan Hajek of Czech Republic 7-5, 6-1, 6-2. It wasn't the best of starts for Murray as he was down a break 4-2 in the first set. He came back strongly winning 17 of the last 21 games to advance to the second round. Murray was a semifinalist here last year losing to Andy Roddick in four sets. Murray held on his first service game to love, but lost his next service game to a brilliant drop shot from Hajek at 15-40. He broke back in the eighth game of the first set.

Murray will next play Jarkko Nieminen of Finland for a place in the third round. Nieminen, ranked No. 67 in the world beat Stefan Koubek 6-4, 7-6 (7-3), 5-7, 6-2 in his first round match.
