Hampstead’s Harriet Dart and Joe Salisbury beat Wesley Koolhof and Demi Schuurs 6-2 1-6 6-4 to reach the third round of the mixed doubles at Wimbledon. 

The match had been all square at one set apiece when rain ended it on Monday and Dart and Salisbury knocked out the third seeds in the decider on Tuesday. 

Dart and Salisbury broke the Dutch pair in the third game and were able to hold serve for the remainder of the match. 

They now face Austrian Oliver Marach and Lyudmyla Kichenok of Ukraine.
