Shahar Pe'er and Dudi Sela both recorded first-round Wimbledon victories on Monday. Sela (47) found it tough against Mexican qualifier Santiago Gonzalez (233) but eventually came through 3-6, 6-7, 6-4, 6-4. He will play German Rainer Schuettler (18) or Xavier Malisse of Belgium in the second round.
