Wimbledon 2018: Federer storms through, Wozniacki out



"I needed to put him away and I was able to do that and I am very happy". An important thing that one can notice is that Federer was playing much more aggressively in that match.

Lopez marked the achievement by beating Federico Delbonis 6-3 6-4 6-2 to progress to round two at the All England Club.

Five of the top 10 women's seeds have now failed to go beyond the second round at Wimbledon. It was her earliest exit at a Slam since a first round defeat at the 2010 Australian Open.

It marked the third straight worldwide tournament that this talented Swiss generation exited in the last 16 while their dreaded run of not reaching the World Cup quarterfinals since 1954 continued.

In this picture, Switzerland's Federer reacts after winning against Slovakia's Lukas Lacko during their men's singles second round match on the third day of the 2018 Wimbledon Championships at The All England Lawn Tennis Club on July 4, 2018, in Wimbledon, southwest London.

"So whenever he's sleeping, that's when I'm working, and other times I'm a full-time mom. I hope I can win a few more matches here and the German crowd can watch some tennis". "If that's your best or not doesn't matter".

Dutchwoman Kiki Bertens is also through with a 6-4, 6-0 result against Russian Anna Blinkova, but Poland's Agnieszka Radwanska is out following a 7-5, 6-4 loss to Czech Lucie Safarova.

Katie Swan's Wimbledon run is over after she was beaten 0-6, 3-6 by 29th seed Mihaela Buzarnescu.

France's Kristina Mladenovic raced into the third round with a comfortable 6-2 6-2 win over Germany's Tatjana Maria after action resumed on Centre Court under the roof.

The 2016 Wimbledon finalist and 13th seed triumphed 7-6, 7-6, 7-6 in three tough sets. The Swiss completed 75 percent of his first serve and has now won 26 consecutive sets at Wimbledon following on from his win a year ago.

While Federer and Serena strolled, Caroline Wozniacki suffered fresh Wimbledon woe as the world number two suffered a shock 6-4, 1-6, 7-5 defeat against Ekaterina Makarova.

Wozniacki has never been past the fourth round in her 12 visits to Wimbledon and required insect repellent to tackle a swarm of flying ants during her match.

Federer returned from injury following a six-month absence to win the Australian Open last year at the age of 35, ending a five-year wait for an 18th grand slam title.

"I mean, it just gives even more props to her, honestly", said Keys, the U.S. Open runner-up previous year and a French Open semifinalist last month.
