Wimbledon 2016: The big talking points from day two


Day two of Wimbledon ended early because of the weather, but not before a number of players kicked off their campaigns.

Here are three talking points.

Has Nick Kyrgios matured?

Australian Kyrgios has got into his fair share of scrapes in his so-far brief career and even had one in his first-round win over Radek Stepanek, being given a language violation at the end of the third set. He quickly roared back to win the fourth 6-1, though, and refused to discuss the matter when probed on a number of occasions afterwards. Perhaps the penny is finally dropping.

There's Moore to Britain than Murray and Konta

Andy Murray in particular is used to carrying the British flag and it is a pressure Johanna Konta is now starting to experience. Others are chipping in, though. Marcus Willis and Dan Evans won on Monday, and on day two Doncaster resident Tara Moore made light of the 100 ranking places that separated them to defeat Alison van Uytvanck, giving British fans plenty more to cheer.

Del Potro is back and dangerous

It was three years since Juan Martin del Potro last graced Wimbledon, his horrible record with injuries meaning he has not been able to build on the semi-final he made on his last appearance. He is only 27, though, and has a grand slam in the cabinet, meaning he is one to avoid on his return this time, something Stan Wawrinka cannot do after Del Potro's win over Stephane Robert earned him a meeting with the Swiss.
