Wimbledon 2018: Federer enters third round

A creepy Swedish bomb shelter

In his 20th Wimbledon appearance, top seed Federer, a 20-time Major victor, is bidding to become only the second player to claim nine singles titles at the All England Club after Martina Navratilova. "It's always very exciting, I must tell you", Federer added.

"I am happy with how I am hitting the ball and concentration on my own service games and I am able to mix it up on return".

Serving up yet another Centre Court spectacle, Roger Federer's dominance here at Wimbledon showed no signs of fading as he brushed past Slovakia's Lukas Lacko with a typically flawless display.

John Isner launched 21 aces in a comfortable 6-3 6-3 6-4 win over Moldova's Radu Albot.

The 36-year-old Swiss extended his winning streak to 29 consecutive sets at the All England Club.

"It was better than the first round".

"Serena", Rodina said, "is my idol".

The 20-time Grand Slam champion had earlier started off his season on a winning note by clinching the Australian Open before he chose to skip the clay-court season for a second-straight year, including the French Open.

Kristina Mladenovic advanced to a Wimbledon third-round meeting with Serena Williams after defeating Tatjana Maria 6-2, 6-2.

France, Uruguay set date for quarter-finals
Cavani scored both goals in Saturday's 2-1 last-16 victory over Portugal before being forced off with an injury. We know that the squares have been full back home and that the people there were really rooting for us.

However, Wozniacki still can't seem to get comfortable at the All England Club - especially when there's a swarm of bugs flying around her head. Is not about, you know, the number of grand slams played.

Wozniacki is still waiting to get past the round of 16 for the first time, despite fighting back from 5-1 down in the third set and saving four match points at 5-3.

"They're in my mouth and in my hair and everywhere - we need to do something. Is there a spray?" she said.

"I want to be here to focus on tennis, not eating bugs".

Five-time Wimbledon champion Venus Williams once again dropped the opening set, and once again dominated the rest of the way to win.

Sister Venus, a five-time champion, lost the first set but fought back to beat Romanian qualifier Alexandra Dulgheru 4-6 6-0 6-1.

The Swiss champion was at his breath-taking best as he crafted 48 exquisite winners during a 90-minute masterclass that seemed more an exhibition of his shot-making than a charge towards a record ninth Wimbledon title.

Azarenka's one-year-old son Leo travels with her on the tour amid a stressful custody battle that forced her to step away from the sport last year.

After her loss Swan said on Twitter: "Tough one today but overall a great experience". If that's working for me I'm all for it. "I hope I can win a few more matches here and the German crowd can watch some tennis".
