Lukáš Lacko was the victim at Centre Court on Tuesday, falling in three consecutive sets (6-4, 6-4, 6-1) as Federer breezed through him with an utterly imperious serve. "It's great to follow Federer and Nadal, but I think 16 seeds would shake up the men's draw".
Federer's longest streak of sets won at Wimbledon was 34 between the third round in 2005 to the 2006 final.
It was another dominant display by the eight-time champion, who lost just nine of 61 points on his serve in total and broke Lacko five times, including with a forehand victor to close out the match. "Some players can play best tennis".
Serena, seeded 25th after her return from maternity leave, faces France's Kristina Mladenovic or Germany's Tatjana Maria for a place in the last 16.
Raonic had just four break-point opportunities in the match, winning one.
The No. 9 seed, at 38 the oldest woman in the draw, came back to beat 141st-ranked qualifier Alexandra Dulgheru of Romania 4-6, 6-0, 6-1 after dropping the first set for a second straight match.
