Jean-Julien Rojer and Vera Dushevina provided the shock of the day in the Mixed Doubles competition as the Dutch-Russian partnership knocked out fourth seeds Max Mirnyi and Andrea Hlavackova.

It was an impressive 7-6 (3), 6-3 win on Court 18 for the unseeded pair against 1999 Mixed Doubles champion, Mirnyi, and Hlavackova, a finalist in the Ladies' Doubles event last year. 

The reward which awaits them in the third round is a meeting with Spain's David Marrero and Japan's Kimiko Date-Krumm.

Elsewhere, American's Liezel Huber and Marcelo Melo, of Brazil, advanced through to the next stage stage of the competition after Rajeev Ram and Francesco Schiavone retired at 4-0 in the first set. They could play Australian partners, John Peers and Ashleigh Barty or ninth seeds Treat Huey and Raquel Kops-Jones next.

11th seeds Marcin Matkowski, of Poland, and Czech player Kveta Peschke beat America's Abigail Spears and Israel's Andy Ram, 7-5, 7-5, to set up a meeting with fifth seeds, Alexander Peya and Anna-Lena Groenefeld.

It was also a routine day at the office for top seeds, Bruno Soares, of Brazil, and America's Lisa Raymond. The pair raced to a comprehensive 6-2, 6-3 win against Slovakia's Filip Polasek and Janette Husarova. The Mixed Doubles favourites face a tricky test against Denmark's Frederik Nielsen and Sweden's Sofia Arvidsson next, following their victory over Croatia's Ivan Dodig and Marina Erakovic.

20:24...But boy, it was a barrow-load of fun. I hope you enjoyed it even half as much as we did. Thank you for all your messages throughout, you've been the glue holding us together as the edges frayed amid the madness. Now if you'll excuse me, it's time for us Brits to raise a toast to Andy Murray and Fred Perry. British sporting legends both.

20:19It was the wackiest of Wimbledons with the most unlikely of headline-makers: Sergiy Stakhovsky, Steve Darcis, Michelle Larcher de Brito, Kimiko-Date Krumm, Jerzy Janowicz, Sabine Lisicki, Marion Bartoli...
