Nick Kyrgios admitted to spitting in the direction of a spectator at the conclusion of his five-set victory over Great Britain’s Paul Jubb at Wimbledon yesterday.

The Australian was involved in several prickly chats with a number of those in the crowd as well as the line judges throughout the round one contest. And he criticised the lack of respect shown by the current generation of fans before he went on to admit his own indiscretion.

When asked if he spat in the direction of a spectator, Kyrgios replied: ‘Of one of the people disrespecting me, yes. Yes. I would not be doing that to someone who was supporting me.

‘Today as soon as I won the match, I turned to him… I’ve been dealing with hate and negativity for a long time, so I don’t feel like I owed that person anything.’

British Wimbledon player Henry Patten was ‘a complete mess’ at university before he started taking tennis seriously, his roommate of five years has revealed.

Patten, 26, will make his SW19 debut alongside Julian Cash in their doubles match on Wednesday against thirteenth seeds Santiago Gonzalez, from Mexico, and Andres Molteni, from Argentina.

The Colchester-born player’s university flatmate, Olly Cull, 24, said he felt ‘incredibly proud’ of how far his friend had come, while in the queue for the tournament on Wednesday.

When asked what the left-handed player was like as a roommate, Mr Cull laughed and said: ‘A complete mess.

‘He’s sorted himself out for sure. He was messy, late for everything, (bad) work ethic, nights out.

‘But no, he’s doing very well, I’m very proud of him.’

Wimbledon wildcard Ryan Peniston is fast becoming one of Britain’s great hopes for success at SW19 this summer.

After easily brushing aside Henri Laaksonen with a convincing three-set victory on Court 12, spectators are sure to flock to Court 3 early to grab the best seats for the 26-year-old’s second-round clash with American rival Steve Johnson.

And his last eight runs at Queens and Eastbourne this month have already seen Peniston take earnings of more than £146,000. This will increase with every match he achieves glory at Wimbledon – and he could even double his earnings if he wins today’s match.

But his journey to the iconic grass courts of the All England Club has been nothing short of challenging – and life dealt him an early blow when he spent eight months in hospital as a baby fighting a rare cancer.

Day two of Wimbledon was an emotional one with Centre Court witnessing what could have been Serena Williams’ final appearance at Wimbledon following her defeat by Harmony Tan in a three-set thriller on Tuesday evening.

It followed a day which saw another bizarre outburst from Nick Kyrgios, as well as wins for Rafael Nadal and Iga Swiatek. But it was another good day for British players, with Jack Draper and an emotional Heather Watson – who is back on court today later on in the second round – among those making their way through to the second round. And there could be more home success today.

Ryan Peniston – who kicked off Tuesday’s proceedings – could double his career prize money today if he beats Steve Johnson of the USA, before he takes to the doubles scene with Alastair Gray later in the afternoon.

He is not the centre of attention though in the latter, with No 1 seed Joe Salisbury and his American partner Rajiv Ram up against Carlos Taberner and Daniel Altmeier. Jamie Murray – who will be Venus Williams’ partner in the mixed doubles – is also in action with Bruno Soares against French pairing Benjamin Bonzi and Arthur Rinderknech.

Centre Court is then a re-run of Monday’s order, with Novak Djokovic facing Thanasi Kokkinakis of Australia, before Emma Raducanu continues her SW19 campaign against France’s Caroline Garcia.

Andy Murray isn’t happy about it but he is last up on Centre Court, playing US star John Isner who has a Wimbledon record in his sights (more on that later).

Harriet Dart meanwhile finally plays her delayed first-round match against Rebeka Masarova, and the 25 year-old could become the 10th Briton to reach the second round.

Good morning, and welcome to MailOnline’s live coverage of the 2022 Wimbledon Championships.

Tennis champs Novak Djokovic, Emma Raducanu and Andy Murray are all set to play at Centre Court on Day 3.

And British rising star Ryan Peniston will take to Court 3 at 11am for his second-round clash with American ace Steven Johnson.
