Laura Robson has said that the atmosphere on Centre Court at Wimbledon was "amazing" during her second-round win today.

The 19-year-old Briton beat Mariana Duque-Marino in straight sets to set up a third-round clash with Marina Erakovic from New Zealand.

Speaking to BBC Sport after the match, Robson said: "The atmosphere was amazing, when the roof is closed it feels a lot louder and you feel a lot more pumped.

"It was a tough one for me, I was really nervous, there's a lot of pressure but I'm just trying to focus on the tennis side of things and the expectations I have for myself rather than what everyone else is thinking."

It is the first time that Robson has reached the third round at SW19.
