Naomi Broady recorded her first ever win in the main draw of a WTA tournament by beating Caroline Garcia on Centre Court on Tuesday.

The British world No.231 triumphed in three sets against her young French opponent, winning 6-2, 6-7(5), 6-4 in the first match of the day.

"I’m really happy with that win," said the Briton after the match. "I think it was my first win in a WTA main draw so it’s a nice stepping stone."

On a rain affected day both players had to keep composed as they came on and off the court several times.

"It was made more difficult with the rain delays, to keep concentration," Broady continued. "I knew I had to keep playing the same game as before.

"She’s a very good player, young and upcoming, but I think I was able to stay more calm and play my game."

In round two Broady, who came through two rounds of qualifying over the weekend, will now face the tough task of taking on the third seed and world No.20, Shuai Peng of China.

"I’ve not played her before," said Broady on the third seed, "I’ll have to speak with my dad and come up with some tactics. My serve is just as fast as everyone else’s so I’ll just go out there and do my thing."

Elsewhere around the Edgbaston Priory Club there were round one wins for the No.11 seed Yaroslava Shvedova (KAZ), who beat Jie Zheng (CHN) 6-2, 7-6(5), Casey Dellacqua (AUS) over Sandra Zahlavova (CZE) 7-5, 7-6(5), and Misaki Doi (JPN), who beat Edina Gallovits-Hall (ROU) 6-4, 6-2 and will now go on to play Heather Watson.

Three of the four second matches on court today went to three sets but were won by Timara Paszek (AUT), beating Sania Mirza (IND) 6-3, 4-6, 6-2, Christina Mchale (USA) against Anastasia Rodionova (AUS) 3-6, 7-6(7), 6-2, and Ayumi Morita (JPN) [9] who beat Ajla Tomljanovic (CRO) 6-3, 3-6, 7-6(4).

The remaining round one match saw Andrea Hlavackova (CZE) defeat Jill Craybas (USA) 6-3, 6-1.
