Australian Alex De Minaur, the No 19 seed, moved into the last 16 of Wimbledon by winning against wildcard Liam Broady 6-3, 6-4, 7-5 at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in London on Saturday.

De Minaur, ranked No 27, will play Chilean Cristian Garin next.

The Australian has reached the round of 16 at Wimbledon for the first time, after entering the championships with a 3-3 overall record.

De Minaur joins compatriot Jason Kubler in the round of 16. If Nick Kyrgios defeats Stefanos Tsitsipas later today it will mark the first time three Australians have reached the round of 16 at the same major since 2002 Wimbledon.
