Wimbledon-2018: Federer and Raonic could go in third round

Federer and Williams cruised into the third round with straight-sets victories on Wednesday, looking at home on the Centre Court where they have won 15 titles between them.

Top seed Federer, the eight-time champion, goes on to face either 39-year-old Ivo Karlovic of Croatia or Germany's Jan-Lennard Struff.

The 36-year-old is the reigning Wimbledon champion and served up a near-perfect performance against second-round victim Lukáš Lacko on Wednesday.

The next day of the Wimbledon tournament was not completed due to rain.

However, Wozniacki still can't seem to get comfortable at the All England Club - especially when there's a swarm of bugs flying around her head.

"Also I was excited to wear Uniqlo today".

Australia's Ashleigh Barty beat Canada's Eugenie Bouchard 6-4 7-5 in a match between former Wimbledon girls champions. Meanwhile, world number two Caroline Wozniacki suffers shock defeat against Ekaterina Makarova.

"It's a wonderful feeling walking out there, I take every match one at a time, I try to put on a good match, try hard every time, and will never underestimate anybody - that keeps me in check".

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


But she didn't look her age in making it 89 career match wins at Wimbledon by demolishing Dulgheru in the final two sets.

Third seed Marin Cilic was stunned 3-6 1-6 6-4 7-6 (3) 7-5 by Argentina's world number 82 Guido Pella in three hours 12 minutes.

"I think it is important that, when you want to serve well, your point-for-point mentality is right", Federer said.

Serena Williams making her comeback in the tournament after giving it a miss a year ago to give birth to daughter Alexis Olympia routed Bulgarian qualifier Viktoriya Tomova 6-1, 6-4.

The top seed belted down 16 aces, hit the target with 70 percent of his first serves, dropped only three points on his first serve and did not even come close to facing a break point.

Wearing statement red shoes, Wareing said he was excited for a day of tennis.

Novak will next face 2016 Wimbledon runner-up Milos Raonic, who hit 34 aces in his 7-6 (7-4) 7-6 (7-4) 7-6 (7-4) victory over John Millman. Romanian 29th seed Mihaela Buzarnescu thrashed British teenager Katie Swan, 6-0, 6-3 to extend her remarkable renaissance.

American 10th seed Madison Keys safely advanced in a 6-4, 6-3 win over Thai player Luksika Kumkhum, while Croatia's Donna Vekic continued her progress with a 7-5, 6-4 win over Swede Rebecca Peterson.
