British teenager Katie Swan, ranked 866 in the world, could not extend her run in Wimbledon qualifying beyond the second round as she was beaten 6-3 6-3 by Austria’s Tamira Paszek.

Swan shocked Kristina Kucova, ranked 748 places higher than her, 6-3 6-4 in the first round but could not repeat the feat on Wednesday.

Compatriot Dan Evans did fair better though, after a surprise 6-4 0-6 7-5 win against eighth seed Matthias Bachinger.
