It was a bitter defeat for the 27-year-old Dane, who was expected to challenge for the Wimbledon title after winning her maiden Grand Slam crown at the Australian Open in January.

"I'm happy if they say whatever they say, as long as it is "game" and my name somewhere, and not "game" and the other name".

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

"I'm just very pleased that I found a way in that first set, then also stayed calm in the second set, regardless that I had maybe missed opportunities".

Sam Querrey, the 11th seed, stepped up his bid to emulate last year's run to the semifinals with a 7-6 (7/4), 6-3, 6-3 win against Ukraine's Sergiy Stakhovsky.

The seven-time champion, 36, who returned in February after giving birth, is second on Centre Court. It's about how many years have been playing at the top level.

"I want to be here to focus on tennis, not eating bugs".

With his 60th match win at Wimbledon, the Serbian ensured he reached the third round for the 10th consecutive year.

Milos Raonic, seeded 13th, was made to work hard against Australia's John Millman before prevailing 7-6 (4) 7-6 (4) 7-6 (4) in two hours 38 minutes on Court Two. Can Federer pull off another straight-set victory? "I feel ready to compete".

It is not yet known who Federer will face but he said he is "looking forward" to the next stage in the competition.

"It's nearly as if he doesn't need to play tennis matches, it comes so natural for him". They play Paolo Lorenzi and Albert Ramos Vinolas, before Murray embarks on a new partnership with former world number one Victoria Azarenka.

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. The Croatian, runner-up in 2017, last bowed out in the second round in 2013.

"In the fourth set he broke my serve but I was calm". "I thought she had to improve a lot to be a contender after the first game, and after what we saw today, she is a contender".

But 27-year-old Dane Wozniacki, the victor at Eastbourne last week, crashed out in a 6-4, 1-6, 7-5 defeat to Russia's world number 35 Ekaterina Makarova.

With Federer having an elegant answer to everything Lacko could throw at him, it was not until the 20-times Grand Slam champion walked off court that he was finally stumped. She promptly reeled off 12 of the next 13 games to wrap up a 4-6, 6-0, 6-1 victory.
