Play was interrupted on all courts due to a spell of rain.

Wimbledon semi-finalist Sam Querrey made quite a roar when he made his way into the final four a year ago and looked in the sort of form that was capable of maybe stealing a first major of his career.

The pair sent down a combined 92 aces in the marathon contest on Court 15, with Karlovic accounting for 61 of them.

With flying ants stuck in Wozniacki´s hair and dive-bombing her throughout the match, the former world number one asked the umpire if there was something that could be sprayed to keep the bugs away.

"I'm happy I found a way today".

Seven-time champion Serena fired 24 winners past Bulgarian Tomova to post a convincing 6-1 6-4 victory in 66 minutes on Centre Court. Monfils has picked up a very good grass-court win in the first round against Richard Gasquet and then came back from the jaws of defeat with a four set win over Paolo Lorenzi.

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.

Having played in his fair share of knockout matches in big events, the 36-year-old adds that the one thing any team or player can not afford to do, is be lethargic. "From my end, I'm very happy".

In the other women's singles second round matches, K.A. Pliskova beat V.A. Zarenka 6-3, 6-3, K.Mladenovic beat T.Maria 6-2, 6-2, Venus Williams beat A.Dulgheru 4-6, 6-0, 6-1, E.Makarova bt C.Wozniacki 6-4, 1-6, 7-5, while L. Safarova beat A.Radwanska 7-5, 6-4 and M.Buzarnescu beat K.Swan 6-0, 6-3.

Prediction: Williams in two sets. "I don't know if I've ever played her before which is tough", said Venus, who booked her place in the third round for the 18th time.

"I think she probably took a little bit more of a grunt than he did".

"It's a wonderful feeling walking out there, I take every match one at a time, I try to put on a good match, try hard every time, and will never underestimate anybody - that keeps me in check".

Five of the top 10 women's seeds have now failed to go beyond the second round at Wimbledon.

"Where I am in the village I can hear the Rose & Crown". I was actually into it at the end. "Now I'm cheering for England".

Federer unveiled his new apparel sponsor Uniqlo ahead of his first-round match on Monday.

He also hammered down 16 aces on his way to winning 93% of his first-service points.

The 17th-seeded Pouille saved two match points in the third-set tiebreaker before eventually forcing a fifth set, but Novak regrouped to reach the third round of a Grand Slam for the first time.

Karolina Pliskova avoided an early exit against two-time Wimbledon semi-finalist Victoria Azarenka.

No such problems for Federer, who won 35 straight points on his serve on route to beating Lukas Lacko of Slovakia 6-4, 6-4, 6-1.

In the men's draw, 13th-seeded Milos Raonic and No. 11 Sam Querrey also advanced in straight sets.
