Andy Murray made history as the world number two cruised into the Wimbledon second round with a 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 victory over Germany's Benjamin Becker on Monday.

Murray's dominant display on Centre Court made him the most successful British man in Grand Slam history as he surpassed Fred Perry's total of 106 matches won at the four majors.

The US Open champion will play Britain's James Ward or Lu Yen-Hsun of Taiwan in the next round.
