Those who were lucky enough to get a seat on Centre Court on Wednesday saw the defending champion put on a scintillating display as he destroyed Slovakia's Lukas Lacko 6-4, 6-4, 6-1 in just 90 minutes.

Federer's quest for a ninth Wimbledon crown gained momentum with a flawless 6-4 6-4 6-1 win over Slovakian world No 73 Lacko in 89 minutes.

Next up for Federer is a third round tie against 39-year-old Croatian Ivo Karlovic or German world number 64 Jan-Lennard Struff.

The Bulgarian offered a little more fight in the second, but only after conceding an early break that she would fail to recover from, and the seven-time Wimbledon victor had it wrapped up in 66 minutes. "I expected more from the team", Federer, who has given Switzerland plenty to cheer about as he collected 20 Grand Slam titles over the past 15 years, told reporters at Wimbledon on Wednesday.

"I felt very good out there". The elder sibling is looking more fallible these days, dropping the first set in each of her opening two matches, but crucially she is finding ways to win. Williams won the match 6-1, 6-4.

"It was better than the first round".

"Every time when I see an article or a video, especially which I enjoy a lot, I see something about the queue, I hear what they say, how excited they are about Wimbledon", he said.

The next day of the Wimbledon tournament was not completed due to rain. Venus is attempting to win her 50th career title, while Federer is after his 21st Grand Slam.

France's Kristina Mladenovic raced into the third round with a comfortable 6-2 6-2 win over Germany's Tatjana Maria after action resumed on Centre Court under the roof.

Serena Williams was a comfortable 6-1, 6-4 victor over Bulgarian qualifier Viktoriya Tomova in the women's singles as she continues to return to her best after time off to give birth.

"Ideally it's two sets", Venus said.

"Obviously, in the last nine, 10 years now, since we have had children, I've been trying to make that work in some shape or form with my wife. If that's your best or not doesn't matter".
