Wimbledon 2018: Serena Williams, Roger Federer & Venus Williams in action on Friday

Federer

In the third set, Federer broke Lacko in the fifth game to take a commanding 4-1 lead before winning the final two games to finish off the match.

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.

The FIFA rankings state Switzerland are the sixth best football team in the world but Federer said his "lethargic" countrymen got what they deserved at the World Cup after they were beaten 1-0 by Sweden. Some moments where it can be frustrating because you're not finding any rhythm, at times you're more reacting than playing active tennis. Federer added: "I'm happy with how I'm hitting the ball".

"Of course, you sometimes play the percentages, but if you do that too much it becomes boring, so I like to mix it up".

"I feel guilty if I take 15 minutes for myself to stretch". "I always have this sort of dream or this thing, I just want to, like, walk past them and speak to these people, to hear their stories".

"I´m getting there. I expect to get there, not only for Wimbledon but for the tournaments in the future". In the morning, Victoria Azarenka, who has a one-year-old son, lost to the seventh seed, Karolina Pliskova.

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.

He said he "felt good" and "less nervous" than he did in his previous match, his first-round win over Dušan Lajović on Monday. It's just about winning the match.

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.

Keys, who watched the match with Briton Laura Robson, said: "She was singing the "it's coming home" song consistently for, like, two-and-a-half hours". Also Severin and Ivan gave me good advice. The 28-year-old came from two sets down to beat Ivo Karlovic 6-7, 3-6, 7-6, 7-6, 13-11 in a match that lasted almost four hours.

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.

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 USA was eliminated 5-7, 6-4, 6-4, 6-2 by Gael Monfils of France.
