Wimbledon: Day two in pictures

Wimbledon: Day two in pictures

This time the Swiss maestro defeated a legend of the past, as he moved into sole possession of Wimbledon's all time win list for men with his 85th win, as well as Alexandr Dolgopolov, who retired with an injury while trailing Federer 6-3, 3-0.

Ward, who came through qualifying, will face fellow Briton Kyle Edmund on court three at 11:30.

The top-ranked German lost to Serena Williams on Centre Court in last year's final, but she advanced Tuesday by beating Irina Falconi of the United States 6-4, 6-4.

Canadian sixth seed Milos Raonic, last year's runner-up, saw off Germany's Jan-Lennard Struff 7-5 (7-5) 6-2 7-6 (7-4) in his opening match. Alexander, the 10th seed followed up 27th-seeded Mischa's straight sets win over Australia's Bernard Tomic with a 6-4 7-6 (7-3) 6-3 win over Russia's Evgeny Donskoy.

Edmund and Ward are two of five Britons in action on day two - Brydan Klein meets Japan's Yuichi Sugita, James Ward meets crowd-pleasing Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis in what is likely to be a lively affair on Court No 18, while the only British woman in action is Katie Boulter.

Playing in his fourth Wimbledon, Lajovic owns a 2-3 lifetime record at the championships. I have been around and feels like I'm super old, but I'm not.

"I remember past year, my mum came to watch and that was the first time I'd played in the main draw and she walked through the gates with me and was crying straight away".

Ward will face a friend, and a tough challenge, when he steps on court against Edmund, the world number 50. "You do maybe take the hammer and the nail and put the racket up against a wall and say I'm going to walk away from it all. but five minutes later you're going to pick it up again and you're going to play again".

"We've trained together quite a few times, been on a few trips". The Slovakian won his biggest title in Rotterdam of a year ago, then won Hamburg, but hasn't really been able to back those results up in a disappointing 2017 season, which has been riddled with injuries. I think Radwanska has the edge of Jankovic on a grass court, with Radwanska winning their only ever meeting on grass and leads the head-to-head by a one-sided 7-2.

"I felt like there was a bit of a letdown from the crowd", Federer told a packed room of reporters after the match. "I'm sure they tried their best". "So for that I need to be fast on my feet and quick in my mind". The former world number three Spaniard has, however, struggled for form over the last few years.
