Talking points from a remarkable first week at Wimbledon

Talking points from a remarkable first week at Wimbledon

The 20-time Grand Slam champion, who has not dropped a set since the 2016 semi-finals, will have his returning game tested by a player whom he defeated 6-4 6-4 7-6 at this year's Australian Open.

Wimbledon's first week has been characterised by a set of stunning performances and phenomenal upsets. That's what makes me great: "I always play everyone at their greatest, so I have to be greater".

"I expected more from the team", Federer said on Wednesday, as quoted on the Sydney Morning Herald. They know that there is a trophy involved at some point if I do play well, because they get most excited about the trophies.

"Then the referee came to me and said, 'You're next on Centre Court.' It was a very nice surprise, and also obviously lucky when you see how it turned out to be right now with all the suspended matches".

"I feel guilty if I take 15 minutes for myself to stretch". Making her 21st Wimbledon appearance, 38-year-old Venus is the oldest woman in this year's tournament.

"Credit to her, she just played really well".

"I'm not there yet but expect to get there not only for Wimbledon, but for tournaments in the future".

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.

"I think I can be very happy today", said Federer, who will next face France's Adrian Mannarino.

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

After dropping her first set to Romania's Alexandra Gulgheru, No. 9-seeded Williams bounced back strong to take two decisive back-to-back sets and move on. Also Severin and Ivan gave me good advice.

Kyle Edmund, Roger Federer, Gael Monfils, even American Madison Keys weighed in on the World Cup debate enveloping Wimbledon at the minute.

Two straightforward, straight-sets victories sets up her third round contest with World No. 120, Rodina.

Tsitsipas, seeded 31st, becomes the first Greek man to reach the fourth round at a Grand Slam.

Lucas Pouille suffered a shock defeat, going down 6-4 6-2 6-7 (8) 3-6 6-2 to Austrian qualifier Dennis Novak on Court No 18.

In the men's draw, Canadian Milos Raonic overcame a hard-fought, triple-tie-break battle to defeat Australian John Millman 7-6 (7-4), 7-6 (7-4), 7-6 (7-4).

Wimbledon's commercial director has no issues with Roger Federer pulling off a marketing coup on Centre Court.

Querrey earlier eased past Ukrainian Sergiy Stakhovsky 7-6 (4), 6-3, 6-3 to advance to the third round for a third successive year.
