Result: Jay Clarke loses to Ernests Gulbis on Wimbledon debut

British teen Jay Clarke bows out of Wimbledon to Ernests Gulbis over five sets.

British teenager Jay Clarke has been beaten by Ernests Gulbis across five sets on his Wimbledon debut.

The Grand Slam first-timer lost 4-6 6-3 7-6(3) 3-6 6-4 to the Latvian in a contest that lasted for three hours and 16 minutes.

The 19-year-old proved tough for the former world number 10 to break down in all five sets, and the third needed a tie-breaker to separate them.

Clarke, who is ranked 218th in the world, had only appeared at three ATP Tour-level matches prior to this year's Wimbledon.

Earlier today, British hopefuls Kyle Edmund and Johanna Konta made it through to round two of the tournament.
