Montreal's Eugenie Bouchard moved on to the second round of Wimbledon after posting a 6-3, 6-4 win over Slovakia's Magdalena Rybarikova on Wednesday.

The match was completed at the covered centre court at the All England Club after rain postponed matches on outdoor courts for a second straight day.

Bouchard and Rybarikova started the match Tuesday before it was suspended with the Canadian leading 6-3, 2-1.

Serving for the win in the 10th game of the second set, Bouchard had to save four break points before converting on her first match point. Rybarikova had trouble with Bouchard's serve and Bouchard slammed home the Slovak's weak return.

Bouchard will next face Britain's Johanna Konta, who defeated Puerto Rico's Monica Puig 6-1, 7-5. It's the first career meeting between Bouchard and 16th-seed Konta.

In men's action, Canadian sixth-seed Milos Raonic had his second-round match with Italy's Andreas Seppi postponed due to rain.
