RAFAEL Nadal dumped out of Wimbledon by qualifier Dustin Brown, while Thanasi Kokkinakis describes watching Nick Kyrgios’ as a “circus”.

    AUSTRALIA’S much-vaunted bowling attack has been dealt a pre-Ashes reality check, after a long day in the field on day two of the match against Essex.

    SAM Groth has booked a third round date with Roger Federer after dispatching close friend James Duckworth in straight sets at Wimbledon.

    CASEY Dellacqua has charged into Wimbledon’s third round, equalling her best result at the All England Club with a superb grasscourt display.

    THERE is a feeling that Ryan Harris’s knee setback is minor and there are no plans at this stage for the champion Australian fast bowler to be sent home from the Ashes.
