But Williams was determined to get home in time to put her daughter to bed, reeling off five successive games to get the job done in straight sets, eventually winning on her sixth match point.

Monday's other Centre Court matches see Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki face Varvara Lepchenko of the United States while Bulgarian sixth seed Grigor Dimitrov, a semi-finalist in 2014, faces three-time major victor Stan Wawrinka.

Williams attended the Duchess of Sussex's wedding to Prince Harry in May, and the pair were together again at a polo event on Saturday - Williams delaying her Wimbledon media duties.

Eight-time champion Roger Federer and seven-time victor Serena Williams shrugged off 30-degree heat to breeze into the Wimbledon second round Monday. I expect to go out there. Four weeks ago her French Open run came to an abrupt end after she was forced to pull out of her fourth-round showdown with Maria Sharapova due to an injury that impeded her service motion.

The USADA database has a grand total of 41 recorded tests for Williams down through the years, and if that seems a lot, consider this: fellow American tennis player Bob Bryan has had 56 tests, despite his earnings being a fraction of Serena's.

Williams pregnancy meant the 36-year-old missed last year's Championships and means she has not lost here since 2014, when she was surprisingly knocked out by France's Alize Cornet.

"I'm adjusting well. I spend so much time with her every single day".

The Ukrainian would have been hoping to make a real challenge for her maiden grand slam, but lost 7-6 (7/3) 4-6 6-1. "As long as he's here, I'm going to try to be here".

But everything else was familiar for the Swiss star who cruised past world number 57 Lajovic in just 79 minutes.

Anthony Bourdain was worth $1.2 million when he died
Anthony Bourdain's daughter will get most of his $1.2M estate, but not his frequent flyer miles. The " Parts Unknown " host's net worth had previously been estimated at around $16 million .

The 36-year-old will next take on the victor of Tereza Smitkova's clash with Viktoriya Tomova in the second round.

She needed two mistakes from Rus to move ahead, though, the 27-year-old firing into the net before over-hitting a comfortable forehand to leave Williams roaring in celebration. I didn't serve at all.

"I'm happy to get through that", she said, adding that she was "just taking one match at a time".

In the women's draw, Serena's sister Venus overcame a slow start to claim a 6-7 (3) 6-2 6-1 win over Swede Johanna Larsson. Pliskova ousted Harriet Dart earlier Monday. He wore a Uniqlo outfit for the first time after ending his career-long apparel partnership with Nike.

She took the first set with a well-timed break at 6-5, with Rus serving to take it to a tie-break.

"They know that there is a trophy involved at some point if I do play well, because they get most excited about the trophies. In the future I'll be able to play a little bit better".

Serena's fellow tennis-playing mother, Victoria Azarenka, a former world number one and two-time semi-finalist, defeated Ekaterina Alexandrova of Russian Federation 7-6 (7/4), 6-3.

Poland's Agnieszka Radwanska, the 2012 runner-up, then supplied the late night drama, saving six match points to beat Romanian qualifier Elena-Gabriela Ruse 6-3, 4-6, 7-5.
