A day after recording his maiden Wimbledon main draw victory in the boys’ singles competition, Australian Edward Winter has enjoyed a winning start to his doubles campaign too.

Winter, a 17-year-old from South Australia, teamed with 18-year-old Jack Loutit from New Zealand to score a first-round victory in the boys’ doubles competition. They beat British wildcards Patrick Brady and William Jansen in straight sets, posting a 6-4 6-3 win.

Winter was the only Australian winner in junior matches on day eight at the All England Club, with 15-year-old Hayden Jones and 18-year-old Jeremy Jin both losing their first-round doubles matches.

Taylah Preston also crashed out of the girls’ singles competition, with Chinese Taipei qualifier Yu-Yun Li recording a 7-6(5) 6-7(3) 6-3 victory in their second-round meeting.

The sixth-seeded Preston, a 16-year-old from Perth with an ITF world junior ranking of No.18, now turns her attention to the girls’ doubles competition.
