Federer eases into 3rd round at Wimbledon

  • Milos Raonic doesn't know much about his Wimbledon third round opponent

Raonic avoided a confrontation with a seeded player in the third round as qualifier Dennis Novak of Austria upset No. 17 Lucas Paille of France 6-4, 6-2, 6-7 (8), 3-6, 6-2 on Wednesday. Today I didn't get anything for free.

Venus Williams was also in action on Wednesday.

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

"Of course, you sometimes play the percentages, but if you do that too much it becomes boring, so I like to mix it up".

"I think (the seeds going out) it's way more positive than negative for women's tennis", Wilander, working as Eurosport's lead analyst at Wimbledon, told Reuters.

That roller-coaster on grass sums up her relationship with a surface which fills just over a month of the tennis season between the European clay court swing and the United States hard courts series.

Williams was almost as good, losing just five of 32 points on her first serve in a 6-1, 6-4 win over Viktoriya Tomova.

Kristina Mladenovic advanced to a Wimbledon third-round meeting with Serena Williams after defeating Tatjana Maria 6-2, 6-2.

Two-time champion Petra Kvitova made a stunning first-round exit from Wimbledon on Tuesday as she lost 6-4, 4-6, 6-0 to unseeded Aliaksandra Sasnovich of Belarus.

Tomova, the 23-year-old Bulgarian, had won her first Grand Slam match in the opening round, but was no match for her opponent in the first set as she struggled to compete, but did improve dramatically in the second.

Making her 21st Wimbledon appearance, 38-year-old Venus is the oldest woman in this year's tournament.

However, that didn't appear to be affecting her as she rallied to level the match by winning the second of two closely fought sets. If that's working for me I'm all for it.
