New Zealand tennis No1 Marina Erakovic has easily won her first round doubles match at Wimbledon by teaming up with Zimbabwe's Cara Black to defeat Heather Watson (Britain) and Mervana Jugic Salkic (Bosnia & Herzegovina) 6-2 6-0 this morning.

Erakovic will play her second round singles match against 24th seed Peng Shuai from China third on court two from 11am (London time).

The duo have met just once before, also on grass, when Peng won a qualifying match at Birmingham two years ago 6-4, 4-6, 6-3.

The winner of that match will play either local hope Laura Robson or Mariana Duque-Marino in the third round.
