England, Jun27:  Heather Watson gave Britain a woman in Wimbledon's third round for the first time in a decade by beating Jamie Hampton of the United States 6-1, 6-4 on Wednesday.



The 103rd-ranked Watson won the match's first five games to take control.

In the first round on Monday, the 20-year-old Watson became the first British woman to win a match on Centre Court since 1985. Now she's the first woman from the host country to make it to the third round at the All England Club since Elena Baltacha in 2002.

Hampton, who is ranked 100th, was playing in the first grass-court tournament of her career.
