Sweden v Switzerland 12 facts to help you tell them apart

"Every time when I see an article or a video, especially which I enjoy a lot, I see something about the queue, I hear what they say, how excited they are about Wimbledon", he said.

"I fought as hard as I could". Venus reached her ninth Wimbledon final a year ago, but the American star was denied a sixth title by Garbine Muguruza.

"Credit to her, she just played really well".

"I'm not there yet but expect to get there not only for Wimbledon, but for tournaments in the future".

Federer fired three of those aces in a row to take the second set and he got his 15,000-strong Centre Court fan club gasping in astonishment as he produced a ridiculous backhand drop shot from behind the baseline. In the third set, Federer broke Lacko in the fifth game to take a commanding 4-1 lead before winning the final two games to finish off the match.

Williams was in dominant mood on Centre Court, brushing aside Tomova in just 66 minutes with 24 winners and four aces to extend her streak of consecutive match wins at the All England Club.

Federer was relentless as he lost just nine of 61 total points behind his intimidating service.

That direction is into the third round without dropping a set, although the 25th seed is yet to be truly tested, despite a trickier first-round encounter against Arantxa Rus.

No.10 Madison Keys vs. I created more chances in the second set and was always able to stay pretty clean on my own service game.

The 36-year-old Swiss did not face a single break point and struck 48 winners as he extended his winning streak to 26 successive sets at the All England Club.

Even ultimate warrior Williams, who was unable to defend her 2016 Wimbledon title past year because she was pregnant, applauded a couple of her opponent's winners late in the second set before completing victory in 66 minutes. "I expected more from the team", Federer said on Wednesday, as quoted on the Sydney Morning Herald. Another championship contender, Novak Djokovic who is making a comeback after a long layoff due to an elbow injury cruised past USA's T Sandgren, 6-3, 6-1, 6-2.

"It was better than the first round". It was a very nice surprise to me.

But she didn't look her age in making it 89 career match wins at Wimbledon by demolishing Dulgheru in the final two sets.

Former world number one Karolina Pliskova finally made it to the third round on her seventh visit to Wimbledon after seeing off two-time Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka 6-3, 6-3.

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.

Novak will next face 2016 Wimbledon runner-up Milos Raonic, who hit 34 aces in his 7-6 (4), 7-6 (4), 7-6 (4) victory over John Millman.
