Simona Halep loses just four games in breezing past Teliana Pereira to reach the second round of Wimbledon.

Simona Halep has cruised into the second round at Wimbledon by beating Brazil's Teliana Pereira in straight sets this evening.

The Romanian dropped four games in the whole match to seal victory in just over an hour and progress to the next stage.

Halep got off to a fine start, inflicting two breaks of serve en route to a commanding 4-1 lead in the opening set before ultimately winning 6-2.
