Federer and Williams sisters advance at Wimbledon but Wozniacki crashes out

Federer

Two days after creating a stir at Wimbledon with his new mega-bucks clothing deal, Federer was back making a style statement with his dazzling tennis as he gave Lacko a 6-4 6-4 6-1 dressing down to reach the third round on Wednesday.

After Makarova edged out a tight first set, the Dane looked to have recovered by producing the ideal response, taking the second set 6-1.

Court played great. It's wonderful.

Federer again opted to skip the clay-court season to prepare himself for Wimbledon and will take some stopping as he goes in search of a 99th tournament triumph at the All England Club.

"I'm very happy (to make the last 16 for the first time), long time I've been chasing for that", said Monfils, who will next face South African Kevin Anderson.

"I feel like I'm going in the right direction".

It marked the third straight global tournament that this talented Swiss generation exited in the last 16 while their dreaded run of not reaching the World Cup quarterfinals since 1954 continued. I think she played above her level and really raised it.

It was the first time the eight-time Wimbledon champion had worn the brand publicly, but organizers said he didn't violate any of their strict rules in regards to using the tournament for marketing purposes.

Chief strategist James Vowles acknowledged the blunder, telling Hamilton that it was his mistake. Nico Hulkenberg ("Reno") - 34 10. "My gearbox is gone", he told the team.

Wozniacki's exit means only world number one Simona Halep, defending champion Garbine Muguruza and seventh seed Karolina Pliskova remain from the top eight in the women's draw.

American Madison Keys has backed England to bring home the World Cup after becoming a supporter of the Three Lions during their round-of-16 victory over Colombia Tuesday. An important thing that one can notice is that Federer was playing much more aggressively in that match.

"I am happy to be able to play in the third round tomorrow".

Five-time champion Venus Williams battled into the third round with a 4-6, 6-0, 6-1 win over Romanian qualifier Alexandra Dulgheru.

Very little did not work on this day, and he's allowed his two opponents to collect a total of 17 games through six sets. "I hope I can win a few more matches here and the German crowd can watch some tennis". I was actually into it at the end.

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.

No. 8 Kevin Anderson and No. 9 John Isner - the highest-ranked American man, he'd never before reached the fourth round at the grass-court major - won in straight sets, while No. 11 Sam Querrey of the US was eliminated 5-7, 6-4, 6-4, 6-2 by Gael Monfils of France.
