Feliciano Lopez happy to finally beat Roger Federer at something

  • Rafael Nadal Wimbledon Draw

Roger Federer made quick work of Dusan Lajovic on Monday.

The only things unfamiliar about Federer were his clothes. John Isner defeated Yannick Maden in three sets and unseeded Americans Mackenzie McDonald and Jared Donaldson also advanced. And then, a five-game run and 25 minutes later, Williams had completed the 7-5, 6-3 result.

Rybarikova exceeded expectations by reaching the last four in 2017, where she was beaten by eventual champion Garbine Muguruza.

Former World No1 Karolina Pliskova narrowly avoided a shock defeat to Wimbledon debutant Harriet Dart on Court 12 on the opening day of the Championships.

Uniqlo had previously been associated with Federer's rival Novak Djokovic. Federer had continued to wear Nike without a deal, but for his opening news conference at Wimbledon, he wore an unbranded jacket.

And the 20-time grand slam victor could probably get away without washing his new shirt, barely breaking into a sweat as he dispatched his Serbian opponent in double-quick time.

"I think I don't play so many rallies".

Murray's 2013 title at Wimbledon was the first for a British male in 77 years.

Third seed and last year's runner-up to Federer, Marin Cilic underlined his title credentials by smacking down 21 aces as he eased into the next round with a comfortable 6-1 6-4 6-4 win over Japan's Yoshihito Nishioka.

This Wimbledon marks the 10th anniversary of one of the most famous matches in tennis history: Rafael Nadal's victory over Roger Federer in the 2008 final at the All England Club.

Among the 15,000 people on Centre Court were his two sets of twins.

Feliciano Lopez set a new record for consecutive Grand Slam appearances on Tuesday when he started his 66th major in a row at Wimbledon, attributing the landmark to playing in an era of "monsters and animals".

Top seed Federer admitted before the match that he can still get nervous walking out on to Centre Court but he was at his free-flowing best against Lajovic who was little more than a prop in Federer's magic show.

Serena Williams is also back after missing last year's tournament while pregnant.

Williams, meanwhile, has been shunted off to Court One where she tackles Dutch outsider Arantxa Rus.
