Roger Federer serves up flawless win over Lukas Lacko at Wimbledon

Sweden's king and Switzerland's tennis king

The Australian Open champion went out before the third round for the fourth time in seven years, losing 6-4, 1-6, 7-5 to Ekaterina Makarova of Russian Federation after complaining to the chair umpire about the insects that invaded No. 1 court during the second set. An important thing that one can notice is that Federer was playing much more aggressively in that match.

Raonic reached the third round for a sixth straight year, having lost to eventual champion Roger Federer in last year's quarter-finals.

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.

Querrey's fellow American Madison Keys, seeded 10th, celebrated U.S. Independence Day with a 6-4, 6-3 win against Thailand's Luksika Kumkhum.

"I played very well".

He said he "felt good" and "less nervous" than he did in his previous match, his first-round win over Dušan Lajović on Monday.

Federer wasn´t the only former champion in peak form on Centre Court as seven-time victor Serena routed Bulgarian qualifier Viktoriya Tomova 6-1, 6-4.

Both Venus and Serena Williams and Roger Federer advanced Wednesday at Wimbledon. Williams won the match 6-1, 6-4.

It was another dominant display by the eight-time champion, who lost just nine of 61 points on his serve in total and broke Lacko five times, including with a forehand victor to close out the match. This match was better than my first round.

"Then the referee came to me and said, 'You're next on Centre Court.' It was a very nice surprise, and also obviously lucky when you see how it turned out to be right now with all the suspended matches". I'll be dead before Argentina maybe get one more.

Records that could be broken in quarter-finals
Andersson's squad regrouped, and impressively defeated Mexico 3-0 in their final group match to progress to the knockout stage. If Sweden get a penalty, bank on veteran defender Andreas Granqvist , who has slotted home two at the tournament so far.

It was a bitter defeat for the 27-year-old Dane, who was expected to challenge for the Wimbledon title after winning her maiden Grand Slam crown at the Australian Open in January.

Backing up a career best Grand Slam run can be hard, though, as the pressure obviously builds and your competitors start preparing for the strengths that Querrey can bring to a grass court.

"They're in my mouth and in my hair and everywhere - we need to do something".

Keys, who watched the match with Briton Laura Robson, said: "She was singing the "it's coming home" song consistently for, like, two-and-a-half hours. I was really happy to perform such good tennis on Centre Court".

Seven-time champion Serena Williams faced little resistance in her progress to the third round as she overpowered Bulgarian qualifier Viktoriya Tomova 6-1, 6-4.

Venus Williams was also in action on Wednesday.

Prediction: Williams in two sets.

"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".

Wozniacki's exit means only world number one Simona Halep, defending champion Garbine Muguruza and seventh seed Karolina Pliskova remain from the top eight in the women's draw.

Australia's Ashleigh Barty beat Canada's Eugenie Bouchard 6-4 7-5 in a match between former Wimbledon girls champions.
