Serena Williams vs Viktoriya Tomova, Wimbledon 2018

"It's just credit to her, she played very well and took advantage, you have to at these championships", Venus said of Dulgheru's first-set performance. Unmarried women are addressed as "Miss", and Wimbledon hasn't adopted the neutral term "Ms", which allows women to be addressed formally without being defined by their marital status.

Williams and Ohanian married in front of close friends and family in New Orleans on November 16 previous year, two months after the birth of their daughter. It's an odd tradition that some complain is a gender inequity in need of change, while others simply shrug it off.

"I am happy to get through that", Williams later said in comments carried by the AFP news agency.

On Wednesday, four of the six matches on the premier show courts at SW19 were women's second-round encounters, including those of the Williams sisters, who between them have won a dozen singles crowns here.

The tournament's insistence on recording the marital status of its female participants reflects its complicated relationship with the women who play here - or, rather, the "ladies", according to the language of Wimbledon.

The 36-year-old American barely broke sweat in a one-sided first set but was tested by the world number 135 in the second without ever looking troubled.

The balance shifts back to the men on Thursday, when five men's matches are scheduled on the two feature courts compared with two women's matches.

Wickmayer said she did not care how she was addressed.

Asked if her wealth of Wimbledon experience was a key factor, Venus said: "I'd love to have that extra advantage".

Serena Williams pummelled Viktoriya Tomova in 66 minutes to reach the third round on Wednesday.

Williams used a powerful serve to win 84% of her first serves and 71% of her second serves to put the match away.

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.
