Serena Williams progressed into the third round with a dominant straight-set win over Bulgaria's Viktoriya Tomova. Venus reached her ninth Wimbledon final a year ago, but the American star was denied a sixth title by Garbine Muguruza.

Serena Williams has already shown glimpses of her best form at Wimbledon and will be hoping to extend her run with victory over Kristina Mladenovic in the third round on Friday.

Swiss Federer looked relaxed and greeted his adoring supporters as he entered the practice courts on Thursday in preparation for Friday's contest against the big-serving Struff. "Is there a spray?" she said.

Wozniacki is still waiting to get past the round of 16 for the first time, despite fighting back from 5-1 down in the third set and saving four match points at 5-3.

Lucas Pouille became the latest seeded player to exit the men's draw after a 6-4, 6-2, 6-7 (8), 3-6, 6-2 defeat to Austrian qualifier Dennis Novak.

Roger Federer extended his flawless winning streak at Wimbledon to 26 consecutive sets as the defending champion crushed Lukas Lacko, while Venus Williams battled back to beat Alexandra Dulgheru in Wednesday's second round action. I don't go out there expecting to do well, see what happens. "I want to be here to focus on tennis, not eating bugs", she said to the umpire. 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.

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

Former finalist Agnieszka Radwanska lost 7-5, 6-4 to Czech world number 66 Lucie Safarova.
