World number 2 and defending Wimbledon champion Roger Federer is through to the third round at Wimbledon after a commanding 6-4 6-4 6-1 triumph over the Slovak Lukas Lacko in just an hour and 29 minutes. The 30-year-old has twice made the semi-finals at a major - both at the US Open.

She added: "After that, like literally I lost ten pounds in a week". The tennis superstar might make it all look easy (especially in her Wakanda-inspired catsuit), but she recently opened up about a hard decision she had to make as both a new mom and a tennis star: She chose to stop nursing in an effort to get into better shape to compete in Wimbledon. "Sometimes your serve matches up better against certain players". "If that's your best or not doesn't matter".

Victoria Azarenka suffered an exit at the hands of 7th seed Karolina Pliskova, who won 6-3, 6-3.

Querrey's fellow American Madison Keys, seeded 10th, celebrated US Independence Day with a 6-4, 6-3 win against Thailand's Luksika Kumkhum.

Five-time Wimbledon champion Venus Williams recovered emphatically after dropping the first set against Alexandra Dulgheru to move into the third round at Wimbledon.

Wednesday's win over Tomova was her 16th successive victory on the Wimbledon lawns. She next squares off against No. 20 seed Kiki Bertens.

Wozniacki's frustration was only increased by the unwanted infestation that landed at Wimbledon during her match.

But Serena was still able to extend her winning run at Wimbledon to 15 matches - a streak that encompasses her 2015 and 2016 titles.

She is back at Wimbledon for the first time as a mom, but Serena Williams was in no mood for nurturing as she blasted her way into the second round.
