"I can't go out and say she is favourite to win the tournament - yet".

Wozniacki's frustration was only increased by the unwanted infestation that landed at Wimbledon during her match.

"I'm not surprised how impressive she has looked because she is obviously very easy to train", Wilander, who is presenting Eurosport's Game, Schett and Mats, told Reuters.

Sam Querrey, the 11th seed, stepped up his bid to emulate last year's run to the semi-finals with a 7-6 (7-4) 6-3 6-3 win against Ukraine's Sergiy Stakhovsky.

The 36-year-old took some time to get up to speed, but overcame Arantxa Rus of the Netherlands 7-5 6-3 in her quest for an eighth Wimbledon title.

Federer did not drop a point on his serve in the entire second set and kept that streak going until he was 30-0 up at 4-1 in the third, when Lacko sent a backhand victor down the line.

"The question is will she have a reaction to playing three or four matches, when she is not returning well or the serve is a bit off".

Seven-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams moved to the third round after 6-1, 6-4 win against Viktoriya Tomova. If that's working for me I'm all for it.

A year ago, Buzarnescu was ranked 213 and lost in Wimbledon qualifying - yet now she will face Czech seventh seed Karolina Pliskova for a place in the last 16.

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

The Canadian 13th seed prevailed 7-6 (7/4) 7-6 (7/4) 7-6 (7/4), relying on his bullet serve to emerge victorious from a predictably attritional Court Two contest. But she was forced to pull out of the French before her match against Maria Sharapova with a pectoral injury.

"It was better than my first round and I'm happy that I'm going in the right direction", Williams, who took her winning streak at Wimbledon to 16 matches, said on court.
