Andy Murray says that he is only focusing on himself despite shock exits for Rafael Nadal, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Roger Federer at Wimbledon.

British number one Andy Murray has insisted that he will only concentrate on himself despite a number of upsets in the opening two rounds at Wimbledon.

The world number two cruised into the third round of the tournament at SW19 after defeating Lu Yen-Hsun 6-3 6-3 7-5 on Wednesday, the same day that Roger Federer was knocked out by Sergiy Stakhovsky and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga was forced to retire against Ernests Gulbis.

Rafael Nadal was also eliminated from the British Grand Slam in the first round on Monday, and despite all three being based on Murray's side of the draw, the Scot is taking nothing for granted.

"Upsets happen every single day. You can't take any matches for granted. People want to do that often and just write people through to finals or semi-finals or whatever," Murray told Sky Sports News.

"But it doesn't work that way. You need to be ready for every match. That's just the way that sport is. Everybody was so obsessed with how the draw was before the tournament started. Now everybody wants to change their views on it because a few guys have lost.

"There's top players still left in the tournament, and there's a lot of young guys as well coming through, guys like Gulbis, [Jerzy] Janowicz. Those sort of players are starting to break through and play more consistently. I'll just concentrate on my next match. I'm playing a tough player, a very experienced guy. I'll worry about that match."

Murray faces 32nd seed Tommy Robredo in the third round.
