Aussie junior takes win at Wimbledon

AUSTRALIAN top seed Luke Saville has opened his junior Wimbledon title defence with an impressive straight-sets win over Laurent Lokili.

After losing to his French rival last week in the lead-up event at Roehampton, Saville turned the tables on Monday with a 6-1 6-4 victory.

"I played a really good match," the 18-year-old said.

"I was up 6-1 5-2 serving today and hadn't even looked like getting broken, hadn't faced a break point. He played a great game. It wasn't necessarily me getting a little bit nervous.

"He played good, but I managed to close it out in the end so I was pretty happy to get off to a good start to the tournament."
