Liam Broady helped continue flying the British flag on Thursday after Katie Boulter’s sensational win over Karolina Pliskova with his own victory over Diego Schwartzman.

Not since 1984 had Britain had 10 players through to the second round of both singles draws.

Alastair Gray, Harriet Dart, Emma Raducanu, Andy Murray and Ryan Peniston have since lost their second-round matches.

But all eyes were on the show courts on Thursday with Boulter and Broady both facing seeded players for a shot at their best-ever performance in a slam.

Boulter came from a set down in a dramatic win over No 6 seed and last year’s Wimbledon finalist Karolina Pliskova.

In the mean time, Broady was locked in an epic battle with the experienced Schwartzman.
