Caroline Wozniacki departs Wimbledon early once again

At one point, Federer had won 35 consecutive points on his serve as Lacko simply struggled to contend with the reigning and defending Wimbledon champion.

However, the 2016 French Open champion quickly dispelled any thoughts of an upset by breaking Broady's opening service game, and did it again to take the first set 6-2.

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.

"On certain days it goes better than others", Federer said.

"Just because it seems like they just hit like 312 aces a match, and, I'm, like, Wow that's a good serve".

Wozniacki's defeat by Ekaterina Makarova together with Sloane Stephen's first-round defeat on Monday means Simona Halep will remain as world number one even if she too joins the long list of title contenders to bite the dust.

Wozniacki, plagued by an invasion of flying ants during the Court One clash, saved five match points but has now failed to get past the last 16 in 12 visits to the All England Club. But she was broken again in the final game, becoming the fifth of the top eight women's seeds to lose before the third round.

The No. 9 seed, at 38 the oldest woman in the draw, came back to beat 141st-ranked qualifier Alexandra Dulgheru of Romania 4-6, 6-0, 6-1 after dropping the first set for a second straight match.

Outside of the Williams sisters, who have 12 Wimbledon titles between them, Keys is viewed as the next likely USA champion at the All England Club.

"Ideally it's two sets", Venus said. Stan Wawrinka defeated Grigor Dimitrov in the first round but he was in all kind of troubles today, trailing 7-6 6-3 5-6 against Thomas Fabbiano and having a lot of work to be done tomorrow if he wants to make his seventh comeback from two sets to love down and the first in five years!

The No. 13 seed advanced to the third round of the grass-court Grand Slam on Wednesday with a 7-6 (4), 7-6 (4), 7-6 (4) victory over unseeded Australian John Millman.

Lucas Pouille became the latest seeded player to exit the men's draw after a 6-4, 6-2, 6-7 (8), 3-6, 6-2 defeat to Austrian qualifier Dennis Novak.
