Federer takes sets streak to 26 at Wimbledon

Federer takes sets streak to 26 at Wimbledon

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. It was her 16th straight victory at Wimbledon, although she missed last year's tournament while pregnant.

"Federer says that although Nike has owned his "RF" logo since 2010, he expects to work a deal out to transfer the logo to him so he can use it going forward", Rovell wrote. "Is there a spray?" she said.

"Of course, you sometimes play the percentages, but if you do that too much it becomes boring, so I like to mix it up". "I felt good, less nervous than in the first round", Federer said.

The women's draw suffered another seed shock as No.2 Caroline Wozniacki fell in three sets to Russian Ekaterina Makarova 6-4, 1-6, 7-5.


About 90 minutes earlier, when Roger Federer, a married father of four who preceded Williams on Centre Court, won his match, the chair umpire said, "Game, set and match, Federer".

"Also the grass helps me just a little bit to get a few more free points than what it would on some other surfaces".

Serena Williams has opened up about her decision to stop breastfeeding her daughter Alexis Olympia at six months old.

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.


Federer's longest streak of sets won at Wimbledon was 34 between the third round in 2005 to the 2006 final.

But she didn´t look her age in making it 89 career match wins at Wimbledon by demolishing Dulgheru in the final two sets.

"It's a great feeling to be back, it's been a couple of years since I played on grass, so it is hard trying to find the rhythm".

"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.


"I feel it was something I was born with". Former Wimbledon finalist Agnieszka Radwanska lost 7-5, 6-4 to Czech world number 66 Lucie Safarova.
