Laura Robson is through to the third round of Wimbledon for the first time in her career after a straight sets win over Mariana Duque-Marino.
Robson, who was over powering the Colombian world No.117 with her heavy weight forehand, came through under the roof on Centre Court 6-4, 6-1 in one hour and 13 minutes.
"The crowd is a lot louder, which is great," commented Robson on playing under the roof "It's really exciting playing under the roof because, when you're playing, you feel so much more of the atmosphere.
In terms of playing, I mean, it's a little bit faster, I would say, tends to be a tad slippier just because of the humidity in there. Other than that, it's good."
The British No.1 will play New Zealand's Marina Erakovic in the last 32.
On her up-coming opponent Robson said: "I knew going into the match today that I was the favorite, and I thought I handled that pretty well. Marina Erakovic, who I play tomorrow, I've lost to her on grass before. She's got a big game, a huge serve, a good slice as well. Pretty much a perfect game for grass.
I know it's going to be a tough one. She's been doing really well in doubles lately, as well. Her net game is on the ball. Yeah, we'll see how it goes."
