John Patrick Fletcher via Getty Images Serena Williams slugs a shot in her victory over Aranxta Rus on Monday at Wimbledon.

After dropping her first set to Romania's Alexandra Gulgheru, No. 9-seeded Williams bounced back strong to take two decisive back-to-back sets and move on.

Federer admitted he played "very well" and is "looking forward" to the next round. Not wasting too much energy in the first matches is nice to have.

Serena Williams powered to her 16th successive win at Wimbledon as the seven-time champion routed Bulgarian qualifier Viktoriya Tomova 6-1, 6-4 on Wednesday.

"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.

The 36-year-old professional tennis player recently returned to the court after giving birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia.

Mexico defeats South Korea, close to 16
But history was not on Mexico's side because it had not won back-to-back matches at a World Cup since 2002. South Korea will face Germany at the same time in Kazan.

Kristina Mladenovic advanced to a Wimbledon third-round meeting with Serena Williams after defeating Tatjana Maria 6-2, 6-2. "That worked out well for me today".

Williams, who has 23 Grand Slam titles, reached the last 16 in Paris in her first Grand Slam tournament since the 2017 Australian, where she won while in the early weeks of pregnancy.

With flying ants stuck in Wozniacki's hair and dive-bombing her throughout the match, the former world number one asked the umpire if there was something that could be sprayed to keep the bugs away. "And I told her, 'Look, I'm going to stop".

File that one in the "Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better" drawer.

Venus next faces Dutch 20th seed Kiki Bertens, who beat Russian world number 107 Anna Blinkova 6-4, 6-0.

Azarenka, 28, lost her singles match to Karolina Pliskova 6-3 6-3 but is competing in the mixed doubles alongside Britain's Jamie Murray.
