Williams and Federer take Centre Court stage on Friday

Williams and Federer take Centre Court stage on Friday

"I told myself I was not going to lose this match, I had so many match points, I forgot it and started over", Makarova said.

Prediction: Williams in two sets.

In this picture, Switzerland's Federer reacts after winning against Slovakia's Lukas Lacko during their men's singles second round match on the third day of the 2018 Wimbledon Championships at The All England Lawn Tennis Club on July 4, 2018, in Wimbledon, southwest London.

"I'd be the first player walkover to see the World Cup".

Seven-time champion Serena fired 24 winners past Bulgarian Tomova to post a convincing 6-1 6-4 victory in 66 minutes on Centre Court.

"I think (Makarova) played above her level and really raised it and got a little lucky and played well when she needed to".

Another effortless topspin-loaded swing from Federer, which claimed the opening break of the second set, was followed by a 60-second service game to pull away with a 4-2 lead.

Winning 6-4, 6-4, 6-1 in 90 minutes, Federer showcased the best of his talents as he kept Lacko at arm's length with his impressive range of shots.

In total, the eight-time champion lost just nine of 61 points on his serve and broke Lacko five times, including with a forehand victor to close out the match.

That direction is into the third round without dropping a set, although the 25th seed is yet to be truly tested, despite a trickier first-round encounter against Arantxa Rus.

Five of the top 10 women's seeds have now failed to go beyond the second round at Wimbledon.

Raonic reached the third round for a sixth straight year, having lost to eventual champion Roger Federer in last year's quarter-finals.

"I´m happy how I am hitting the ball, good concentration on my service games and able to mix it up with some slices".

Roger Federer could win his 21st Grand Slam title at Wimbledon this month.

It was a bitter defeat for the 27-year-old Dane, who was expected to challenge for the Wimbledon title after winning her maiden Grand Slam crown at the Australian Open in January.

If Keys wins it could set up an all-American last-16 encounter against Serena Williams.

French 17th seed Lucas Pouille fell short in five sets after fighting from two sets down to be beaten 6-4 6-2 6-7 (8-10) 3-6 6-2 by Austria's Dennis Novak.

"What I know from knockout play throughout the course of my career is (that) you can't afford to come in lethargic", Federer said. M. Keys beat L. Kumkhum 6-4, 6-3 to progress further.

Milos Raonic, seeded 13th, was made to work hard against Australia's John Millman before prevailing 7-6 (4) 7-6 (4) 7-6 (4) in two hours 38 minutes on Court Two.
