  • Sweden's king and Switzerland's tennis king

Australian Open champion Wozniacki had saved five match points against world No.35 Makarova.

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. I can't even be mad at myself, because I played up to the level that I can.

Keys, who watched the match with Briton Laura Robson, said: "She was singing the "it's coming home" song consistently for, like, two-and-a-half hours".

"Credit to her, she just played really well". The 36-year-old made quick work of Lukas Lacko, winning 6-4, 6-4, 6-1 in a match that saw the Swiss make only 11 errors.

Agassi, a victor of eight grand slam titles in a stellar career, is at a loss to explain Federer's incredible achievements.

Only about 101 children under age five are in the care of Office of Refugee Resettlement, according to the government. The administration has matched 86 parents to 83 children and 16 are not yet matched, Fabian said.

"On certain days it goes better than others", Federer said.

"Then the referee came to me and said, 'You're next on Centre Court.' It was a very nice surprise, and also obviously lucky when you see how it turned out to be right now with all the suspended matches".

Five-time champion Venus was a 4-6, 6-0, 6-1 victor against Alexandra Dulgheru while seven-time winner Serena defeated Viktoriya Tomova 6-1, 6-4.

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

Italian Fabbiano saved three set points against three-times grand-slam victor Wawrinka in the second set to advance to the third round of a major for just the second time in his career. Only No. 1 Simona Halep, who plays her third-round match Saturday, and No. 7 Karolina Pliskova, a 3-6, 7-6 (3), 6-1 victor against No. 29 Mihaela Buzarnescu - are still around from the top 10.

Federer admitted he played "very well" and is "looking forward" to the next round.

Milos Raonic slammed 34 aces as the 2016 Wimbledon finalist won 7-6 (4), 7-6 (4), 7-6 (4) against Australia's John Millman.

They were treated to the Swiss' full repertoire, with Federer saying after his victory that playing the percentage shots too much "becomes boring".

In the women's singles event, American tennis star Serena Williams advanced to the second round by beating Dutchwoman Arantxa Rus 7-5 6-3.

Three-time Wimbledon singles champion John McEnroe said it was a chance for the seven-time victor to "kick the rust off a little", while former world number one Kim Clijsters said the American is a contender for the title.
