ANDY MURRAY was comfortably through to the third round of Wimbledon on Thursday, but there was a shock for one of his big rivals, Mallorcan-born Rafa Nadal, crashing out against the unseeded German Dustin Brown.While it was an untroubling 6-1, 6-1, 6-4 victory for Murray, growing in confidence as he looks to claim back the Wimbledon title, Nadal has had to admit his best playing days may be behind him.He lost 7-5, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4 to the qualifier, his fourth beating in recent appearances at the hands of a player not ranked in the top 100. After the match, the Spaniard said that he had the motivation to recover form, but had to admit: “I don’t know if I will be back to the level of 2008 or 2010.”Murray now goes on to face the 25th seed, Andreas Seppi of Italy, in the last 32 of the competition. The flying Scot is joined in the men’s third round by fellow British player James Ward.Guernsey-born Heather Watson has drawn Serena Williams, and will face the number one seed at 8pm (Spanish time) on Friday July 3.
