Australian Bernard Tomic reached the third round of Wimbledon with a 6-3, 6-4, 7-5 win over American James Blake.

After his opening-round win Tuesday, Tomic said he would appeal Wimbledon's decision not to let his father and coach John Tomic on the grounds.

The elder Tomic has been denied access to the All England Club after being accused of head-butting his son's hitting partner during a tournament in Madrid tournament in May.

The All-England Club public relations office said they never received an official appeal from Bernard Tomic regarding his father's ability to enter the grounds.

Tomic was serving for the match at 5-4 in the third, but was broken by Blake. Tomic immediately broke back and then held serve to win the match.
