Federer shows new look, familiar dominance at Wimbledon

Serena Williams' daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian sits on Wimbledon's Centre Court during a visit with her mother

She was down love-30 on her serve and trailing 3-1 in the second set after a run of 7 of 8 points for Rus.

Wimbledon prize money: How much can players earn in 2018? Now that Im not playing doubles in this event, I have the day off, I think that will help.”.

Twenty years after making her Wimbledon debut, there were a few signs of rust against Rus and Serena was pleased to get her first Wimbledon match as a mother out of the way.

Five-time champion Venus Williams overcame a scare to beat Swede Johanna Larsson.

Williams figures to garner plenty of attention however long she remains in the field after sitting out Wimbledon past year while pregnant. "I also think it's healthy, in a way, for me to do what I need to do, be that working mom, then go back home and be the mom". Monday's contest on Court 1 against Arantxa Rus of the Netherlands will be Williams' first since pulling out of the French Open with a hurt chest muscle before a fourth-round showdown with Maria Sharapova.

"I never knew that I was tested so much more than everyone else", the seven-time Wimbledon champion said.

Williams has won 15 matches in a row at Wimbledon, a streak that encompasses titles in 2015 and 2016, although Williams said that hadnt occurred to her until a reporter mentioned it.

There was something old, something new and something blue on show on Monday as Serena Williams swapped the skin-tight catsuit that caused a stir in Paris for a more conservative look on her return to Wimbledon for the first time since becoming a mum. "I'm completely so far away.' I guess they decided it was a missed test, which really doesn't make sense", Williams said.

"I don't believe there's ever going to be enough testing", Federer said. "I just won that a couple of days ago", the Australian Open champion said.

Williams is bidding to equal Margaret Court's record of 24 Grand Slams at the end of the fortnight, nine months after giving birth to daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian.

The 36-year-old will next take on the victor of Tereza Smitkova's clash with Viktoriya Tomova in the second round.

"I am very happy to win, it was a tough match", Vekic said.

"I took a lot of time off with serving". "I didn't serve, actually, 'til I got here, to be honest". "It definitely surprises me a little because I thought it would be different".

Wozniacki arrives at Wimbledon on the back of victory at the Nature Valley International and opened her campaign with a 6-0 6-3 demolition of Varvara Lepchenko.

The Czech, who will be eyeing her maiden grand slam success at SW19, needed three sets, triumphing 7-6 (7/2) 2-6 6-1.

"They know that there is a trophy involved at some point if I do play well, because they get most excited about the trophies".

Last year's semifinalist Magdalena Rybarikova also exited, losing 7-5, 6-3 to Sorana Cirstea of Romania.

In the women's event, there were wins for Czech seventh seed Karolína Pliskova who defeated Britain's Harriet Dart 7-6 (7/2), 2-6, 6-1 and 10th seeded American Madison Keys, a 6-4, 6-2 victor over Ajla Tomljanovic of Australia.
