Five-time champion Venus Williams battled into the third round with a 4-6, 6-0, 6-1 win over Romanian qualifier Alexandra Dulgheru. No one knows how long Wimbledon will last, for either of them. But she was broken again in the final game, becoming the fifth of the top eight women's seeds to lose before the third round. The German player has taken Federer to a tiebreaker on two occasions, but has only ever successfully snatched away one set. She said she'd heard that nursing would promote weight loss, but that didn't happen for her. It's nice here because I had a later match.

Struff, quoted in German Bild, said: "I played a good match against Federer in Melbourne".

Elsewhere, American world No.13 Sam Querrey eliminated Sergiy Stakhovsky of Ukraine 7-6 (7-4) 6-3 6-3 while Russia's Daniil Medvedev, earned a straight-set victory over world Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain 6-3 6-4 6-2.

The Danish second seed struggled in the first set, losing it 6-4, but bounced back to take the game to a decider after winning the second 6-1.

Roger Federer's Wimbledon dominance is showing no signs of weakening as he breezed into the third round.

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

No.11 seed Angelique Kerber survived a tough second-round scare from American qualifier Claire Liu, having to come back from a set down to move on at Wimbledon.

"I wake up early, something I never did, to spend time with her". In addition to actual tennis play, the 36-year-old profits from numerous endorsement deals, which have included Nike, Gatorade, Delta Air Lines, Aston Martin, Pepsi, Beats by Dre, OPI, IBM, and Chase Bank.

"I feel like I'm going in the right direction".

Karolina Pliskova advanced to the third round for the first time with a 6-3, 6-3 victory over Victoria Azarenka. Former Wimbledon finalist Agnieszka Radwanska lost 7-5, 6-4 to Czech world number 66 Lucie Safarova.
