A good day for Jamie Delgado as he marked his record 23rd consecutive appearance at Wimbledon with one of his best victories, coming from two sets down in company with Gilles Muller of Luxembourg to beat Lu Yen-hsun and Divij Sharan. The 37-year-old Briton first played here as a junior in 1992. Only Virginia Wade (26 years) and Martina Navratilova (24) have been here more years in a row. The two grandes dames of the grass have rather more to show from it. Delgado's best is a boys' semi-final and third round in the doubles.
