Wimbledon 2018: The stats behind Roger Federer's second round win

Federer

"It will be good", said 23-time Grand Slam champion Williams. The 6ft 10in American served a world-record 113 aces in his remarkable marathon against Nicolas Mahut in 2010, when he won 70-68 in the final set, and has fired down exactly that number over three matches this year. Next, an uncontrolled effort from Lacko gave a 4-3 advantage to the 36-year-old Swiss.

Federer made 48 winners against 11 unforced errors and cleaned up in the second set, as he did not drop a single point on his serve.

He also hammered down 16 aces on his way to winning 93% of his first-service points.

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

The third set was one-way traffic.

The top seeds in the women's draw continue to tumble as Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki suffered a 6-4 1-6 7-5 defeat by Russian Ekaterina Makarova.

"I fought as hard as I could. He makes it look easy, he has so many options, so as he gets older maybe if he loses half a step, it doesn't change how he plays".

"I think she played above her level and really raised it and got a little lucky and played well when she needed to", sniffed Wozniacki who had lost to the 30-year-old in the second round of the U.S. Open last year. There may be major tests ahead, and perhaps she might fall short, but what her rivals have witnessed so far is a masterclass in how to get the W by your name.

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

Seven-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams moved to the third round after 6-1, 6-4 win against Viktoriya Tomova. She did the same to Dulgheru in a two-hour contest. He reached the third round of a grand slam for the first time.

The Czech seventh seed was a dominant, nearly unstoppable force on Centre Court as she dispatched Azarenka 6-3, 6-3 in 72 minutes.

Katie Swan's Wimbledon run is over after she was beaten 0-6, 3-6 by 29th seed Mihaela Buzarnescu. Only No. 1 Simona Halep, who plays her third-round match Saturday, and No. 7 Karolina Pliskova, a 3-6, 7-6 (3), 6-1 victor against No. 29 Mihaela Buzarnescu - are still around from the top 10.

Five-time champion Venus Williams was also in action, facing Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands.

Federer, who recently won his 98th title by defeating his Canadian opponent Milos Raonic in straight sets in the finals of Stuttgart Open, has spent two consecutive weeks on the grass court in the build-up to the Wimbledon.
