The men have had some upsets, too, but far fewer, and eight-time champion Roger Federer continued his easy progress through the draw by running his Wimbledon streak to 29 consecutive sets.

Mladenovic won back-to-back matches at a major tournament for the first time since previous year at Wimbledon, when she was in the midst of a career-best stretch that ultimately saw her crack the Top 10 for the first time last fall. "I'm happy to be through, I think I played much better today".

Fifth seed Juan Martin del Potro thumped Spaniard Feliciano Lopez 6-4 6-1 6-2 in 95 minutes to move into the third round.

Kyle Edmund, Roger Federer, Gael Monfils, even American Madison Keys weighed in on the World Cup debate enveloping Wimbledon at the minute.

Wozniacki, plagued by an invasion of flying ants during the Court One clash, saved five match points but has now failed to get past the last 16 in 12 visits to the All England Club.

On Court One, Serena's sister Venus Williams had to recover from a set down in successive contests to prevail 4-6, 6-0, 6-1 against Romania's Alexandra Dulgheru for a place in the third round.

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.

The indefinite suspension could cause additional costs, losses and damages, the company said. Weeks later, Mahathir said that his government would review the bullet-train project.

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.

South Africa's Kevin Anderson wrapped up his rain-interrupted match against Andreas Seppi on Court Two winning 6-3 6-7 (5) 6-3 6-4. Though the 25-year-old is 11 years Williams' junior and will have mobility in her corner.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion had earlier started off his season on a winning note by clinching the Australian Open before he made a decision to skip the clay-court season for a second-straight year, including the French Open. "I just hope every match is better".

Australia's Ashleigh Barty beat Canada's Eugenie Bouchard 6-4 7-5 in a match between former Wimbledon girls champions.

"Oh, I didn't know that", he said sounding bemused.

The top seeds in the women's draw continue to tumble as Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki suffered a 6-4 1-6 7-5 defeat by Russian Ekaterina Makarova. That time, Bertens wasted three match points and lost.

Very little did not work on this day, and he's allowed his two opponents to collect a total of 17 games through six sets.
