Lopez breaks Federer grand-slam record at Wimbledon

But so often their quality has led them to glory, and even in 2018 at Wimbledon that remains a distinct possibility for both of tennis' greatest players.

The FIFA rankings state Switzerland are the sixth best football team in the world but Federer said his "lethargic" countrymen got what they deserved at the World Cup after they were beaten 1-0 by Sweden.

"I haven't played her in a while".

"I was happy to stay calm and finish off the job".

"Of course, you have to play the percentages, but if you do that too much it becomes boring - so I like to mix it up". I had the response to her game, but she's a very tricky opponent, very talented, and in really good confidence.

"When you glance at the numbers, the ones that really stand out for me are 48 winners and 11 unforced errors", added the BBC Sport analyst.

Williams is back at Wimbledon for the first time since giving birth to Alexis Olympia in September. "I'm happy I'm going in the right direction", Serena said. "I don't know if I've ever played her before which is tough", said Venus, who booked her place in the third round for the 18th time.

American Madison Keys has backed England to bring home the World Cup after becoming a supporter of the Three Lions during their round-of-16 victory over Colombia Tuesday.

She is now the only woman left in the draw who has won the trophy at the All England Club, after her older sister, five-time champion Venus, lost to No. 20 Kiki Bertens 6-2, 6-7 (5), 8-6 on Friday, joining defending champion Garbine Muguruza, two-time victor Petra Kvitova and 2004 champ Maria Sharapova as Week 1 departures. "I hope I can win a few more matches here and the German crowd can watch some tennis".

"When you get off to a good start in set one and two, you're able to just enjoy the moment more than when you're struggling early on, especially at the tournament like I explained yesterday". I have to come out there and do the best that I can do.

Kiki Bertens grabbed a decisive break in the 18th game to beat ninth-seeded Venus Williams 6-2 6-7 (5) 8-6 and reach the fourth round at Wimbledon for the first time.

Novak will next face 2016 Wimbledon runner-up Milos Raonic, who hit 34 aces in his 7-6 (4), 7-6 (4), 7-6 (4) victory over John Millman.

Romanian 29th seed Mihaela Buzarnescu thrashed British teenager Katie Swan, 6-0, 6-3 to extend her remarkable renaissance. Isner next plays No. 31 Stefanos Tsitsipas, the first Greek man into the round of 16 at a Grand Slam tournament in the 50-year professional era.
