31 July 2012 / 21:10

Heather Watson followed Laura Robson out of the women's tennis singles tournament at Wimbledon as she lost 6-3 6-2 to another Russian Maria Kirilenko.

Watson was far from her best throughout and, after the first four games went with serve, she lost three in a row including two breaks for her opponent.

Watson broke back for 5-3 to fire up the home crowd, but Kirilenko roared straight back to break again and clinch the set.

Kirilenko won the first three games of the second set and from there Watson never recovered.
