Sweden v Switzerland 12 facts to help you tell them apart

Roger Federer cruised into the 3rd round at the All England Club, beating Lukas Lacko 6-4, 6-4, 6-1.

Belgium's Kim Clijsters returned to win the 2009 US Open, while Margaret Court and Evonne Goolagong Cawley won majors after giving birth in an era when the physical demands on players were less intense. "It's definitely been a challenge that I have had to deal with, where all of a sudden, I'm the one that's supposed to win and people are playing with nothing to lose and playing their best tennis. It's always very exciting, I must tell you", Federer added.

"It's a wonderful feeling walking out there, I take every match one at a time, I try to put on a good match, try hard every time, and will never underestimate anybody - that keeps me in check".

Mladenovic walked through her second-round match in straight sets and has been serving well through the tournament, but this match ought to be in Serena's hands. We share a goal of making positive change in the world, and I hope together we can bring the highest quality of life to the greatest number of people.

This will be the first time the pair have met.

Karolina Pliskova avoided an early exit against two-time Wimbledon semi-finalist Victoria Azarenka.

"I think (what's) important when you want to serve well is your point-for-point mentality, saying, maybe, 'The first point is as important as a break point, ' so the concentration is the same", Federer explained.

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

Serena's sister Venus also progressed into the third round, but was forced to fight back from a set down to beat Romanian qualifier Alexandra Dulgheru 4-6 6-0 6-1. I have to come out there and do the best that I can do.

The ninth-seeded American had struggled in the opening set of her first-round match with Johanna Larsson, but roared back to win.

However, Swan crashed out of the tournament losing 6-0, 6-3 to Mihaela Buzarnescu.

Novak will next face 2016 Wimbledon runner-up Milos Raonic, who hit 34 aces in his 7-6 (4), 7-6 (4), 7-6 (4) victory over John Millman.

The seven-time champion's life is still a blur of nappies and interrupted sleep, but that didn't stop her grinding out a 7-5, 6-3 win over Holland's Arantxa Rus in the first round.

Wimbledon's commercial director has no issues with Roger Federer pulling off a marketing coup on Centre Court. She was joined in the third round minutes later by 10th-seeded Madison Keys of the United States, who dispatched Luksika Kumkhum of Thailand 6-4, 6-3.
