Aljaz Bedene was unable to hand Great Britain's men their best Wimbledon return since 1999, losing out to Viktor Troicki in four sets.

Slovenia-born Bedene was unable to back up his first-round victory over Radek Stepanek, with 22nd seed Troicki prevailing 6-4 3-6 6-2 6-4.

Victories for James Ward and Andy Murray handed Britain two men in Wimbledon's third round for the first time since 2002 on Thursday, but newly-minted Brit Bedene could not follow suit.

In 1999, Tim Henman, Greg Rusedski and Danny Sapsford all reached the third round.
