Tennis: Murray beats Gulbis at Wimbledon

Associated Press

WIMBLEDON, England Andy Murray has beaten Ernests Gulbis in straight sets to reach the third round at Wimbledon.

Murray saved two break points early in the first set but never faced another against the Latvian, winning 6-2, 7-5, 6-3 in front of a packed Centre Court on Thursday. He hit 36 winners with just five unforced errors.

Murray is trying to become the first Briton since Fred Perry in 1936 to win the grass-court Grand Slam tournament.
