Third seed Andy Murray saw off Mikhail Kukushkin in his first round match at Wimbledon to take his record this year to 42-6.

Tye 2013 champion will face Robin Hasse in the round of 64 after his 6-4 7-6(3) 6-4 win over Kazhak Kukushkin at the All England Club on Tuesday.

Murray needed a third asking to finish off a 38-minute first set, but was faced with a Kukushkin fightback in the second set, at whose point the heat at SW19 had began taking its toll on both players.

Murray raced into a 3-0 lead and then 5-2 at some point, only for Kukushkin to level at 5-all and force a tie-breaker, which the Briton took by winning ten of 11 points.
