Federer and Serena exude class

Seven-time champion Serena Williams won 6-1 6-4 in just over an hour against Viktoriya Tomova on her first return to Centre Court since winning the title in 2016.

It's been an up and down season for Keys, but she has performed well at the majors - she reached last year's US Open final and this year's French Open semis, both of which she lost to compatriot and friend Sloane Stephens. She broke Tomova three times on her way to the victory. He makes it look easy, he has so many options, so as he gets older maybe if he loses half a step, it doesn't change how he plays. The German player has taken Federer to a tiebreaker on two occasions, but has only ever successfully snatched away one set.

"I did everything I could", Wozniacki said afterwards.

"I couldn't win with a lot of match points, but I kept fighting and playing an aggressive game and finally it worked", Makarova said.

Still, on Wednesday, the women of Wimbledon had a conspicuously bright spotlight as they were featured in five of the seven matches held on the two biggest courts.

Serena Williams' road to her record-tying 24th Grand Slam title is well underway at Wimbledon and she's navigating the scene with her daughter Alexis Olympia Jr.by her side.

Serena back doing what she does best at Wimbledon
Also getting their campaigns under way on Monday are five-time women's champion Venus Williams against Johanna Larsson . Lajovic held serve in the opening game but that was as good as it got for the 58th-ranked Serb.


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.

The 36-year-old is now on his joint second longest streak of sets won at Wimbledon - his best was 34 between the third round in 2005 to the 2006 final. "It was insane. I just kept dropping".

"Oh, I didn't know that", he said sounding bemused.

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

Asked if her wealth of Wimbledon experience was a key factor, Venus said: "I´d love to have that extra advantage". I was not feeling my rhythm from the beginning.

When Roger Federer's lunging mis-hit spun high into the air and turned into a glorious lob, Lukas Lacko must have known it was going to be one of those days when he might as well enjoy having the best view in the house.
