Federer and Williams cruised into the third round with straight-sets victories on Wednesday, looking at home on the Centre Court where they have won 15 titles between them. Wozniacki arrived in southwest London in good form on grass following her victory at the Wimbledon warm-up event in Eastbourne last week. In total, he lost just nine of 61 points on his serve and broke Lacko five times, including a dominant forehand victor to claim the match win.
After Makarova edged out a tight first set, the Dane looked to have recovered by producing the flawless response, taking the second set 6-1.
She said: "It definitely surprises me".
"Of course, you sometimes play the percentages, but if you do that too much it becomes boring, so I like to mix it up".
"You hear when you breastfeed you lose weight and you're so thin, and it wasn't happening to me", Williams said at Wimbledon on Sunday.
Still, on Wednesday, the women of Wimbledon had a conspicuously bright spotlight as they were featured in five of the seven matches held on the two biggest courts. "That's just not me", the 36-year-old, who wore flesh-coloured compression tights to help with blood clots during the match, told reporters.
Roger Federer extended his flawless winning streak at Wimbledon to 26 consecutive sets as the defending champion crushed Lukas Lacko, while Serena Williams powered to her 16th successive win in Wednesday´s second round action.
American 10th seed Madison Keys, the 2017 US Open runner-up who also reached the semi-finals at this year's French Open, will be favourite to overcome world number 120 and qualifier Evgeniya Rodina, who has won five matches en route to this stage.
"What I've learned through the experience-everybody is different, every person is different, every physical body is different", she said.
Raonic reached the third round for a sixth straight year, having lost to eventual champion Federer in last year's quarterfinals. I don't go out there expecting to do well, see what happens. Today's players have continued to smash stereotypes, as an increasing amount of tennis professionals have resorted to plant-based diets to fuel their career and improve their health. "Hopefully, it's just one", she said, laughing.
"I feel like I'm going in the right direction".
