Wimbledon day four highlights: Muguruza bows out as Edmund advances – video

Kyle Edmund is the last Briton standing at Wimbledon after last year’s semi-finalist Johanna Konta crashed out, losing in the second round to unseeded Dominika Cibulkova. Edmund defeated Bradley Klahn 6-4 7-6(0) 6-2 to move into the third round of the Championships for the first time in his career. Up next for the 23-year-old is 12-times grand slam winner Novak Djokovic. World No 1 Simona Halep reeled off 10 games in a row after falling behind 5-3 in the first set to beat Zheng Saisai 7-5 6-0. Garbiñe Muguruza’s title defence was hijacked by Alison Van Uytvanck as the unseeded Belgian produced a fearless brand of hard-hitting tennis to topple the champion with a 5-7 6-2 6-1 victory. Second seed Rafael Nadal beat Mikhail Kukushkin 6-4 6-3 6-4 to advance, but called for clocks on court after he timed out. Third seed Marin Cilic was stunned 3-6 1-6 6-4 7-6(3) 7-5 by world No 82 Guido Pella. The Croatian last bowed out in the second round in 2013. Australian No 1 Ashleigh Barty beat Eugenie Bouchard 6-4 7-5 in a match between former Wimbledon girls champions. Barty now has a tour-leading 12 grass court victories this year
