Petra Kvitova continued her fine form on grass to beat Johanna Larsson and reach the second round of Wimbledon.

Wimbledon highlights are live on Eurosport and Eurosport Player at 10pm

The Czech, who won the Aegon Classic in Birmingham last week - her first grass-court appearance since being stabbed by an intruder at her home in December - carried on where she left off with a 6-3 6-4 win over the Swede.

Although she wasn’t at her absolute best, Kvitova is a grass-court specialist, having won the title in 2011 and 2014 and she will now face either Madison Brengle or Richel Hogenkamp.
