Top-10 seeds Caroline Wozniacki, Sloane Stephens, Elina Svitolina, Caroline Garcia and Petra Kvitova have fallen through the trap door, but veteran Williams reached the last 32 with an impressive 6-1 6-4 victory over qualifier Viktoriya Tomova. No one knows how long Wimbledon will last, for either of them.

USA player Serena Williams (R) shakes hands after winning against Bulgaria´s Viktoriya Tomova during their women´s singles second round match on the third day of the 2018 Wimbledon Championships at The All England Lawn Tennis Club on July 4, 2018.

"I haven't played her in a while". The German player has taken Federer to a tiebreaker on two occasions, but has only ever successfully snatched away one set.

Wickmayer said she did not care how she was addressed.

Lacko defeated French qualifier Benjamin Bonzi in five sets in their first-round match on Monday.

"I played very well again, I felt good out there, less nerves than in the first round, which is normal", Federer said, after racking up his 93rd Wimbledon win.

The 30-year-old Makarova took down Wozniacki 6-4, 1-6, 7-5 to bring the Danish star's tournament to a surprisingly quick conclusion. "I'm happy how I am hitting the ball, good concentration on my service games and able to mix it up with some slices".

The third set was one-way traffic as Federer killed the contest with a ferocious forehand after 90 minutes of brilliance. Federer won the match 6-4, 6-4, 6-1.

The No. 25 ranked Williams easily won the first set 6-1 and finished it off by winning the second 6-4.

"What I've learned through the experience, every body is different, every person is different, every physical body is different", she said in the clip above.

As of 2018, Williams has earned an estimated $85 million in prize money-which, of course, is not the extent of her earnings. "And I told her, 'Look, I'm going to stop".

"I want to be here to focus on tennis, not eating bugs".

Dutchwoman Kiki Bertens is also through with a 6-4, 6-0 result against Russian Anna Blinkova, but Poland's Agnieszka Radwanska is out following a 7-5, 6-4 loss to Czech Lucie Safarova. A single break in each of the first two sets was enough for him as he remained entirely untroubled on his own serve.
