  • Roger Federer Wimbledon

Roger Federer's quest for a ninth Wimbledon crown gained momentum with a flawless 6-4, 6-4, 6-1 second-round win over the Slovakian world No 73 Lukas Lacko in 89 minutes.

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. 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.

Federer wasn´t the only former champion in peak form on Centre Court as seven-time victor Serena routed Bulgarian qualifier Viktoriya Tomova 6-1, 6-4.

'The prizemoney of $US15 million makes it the biggest event outside the Grand Slams', the Tennis Australia CEO Craig Tiley said 'We will have the world's best players male in Australia in January for as long as possible and we have protected week one (of January for Australian tennis).' We could end up in Brisbane with Switzerland having Roger Federer and Spain having Rafael Nadal.

Williams was almost as good, losing just five of 32 points on her first serve in a 6-1, 6-4 win over Viktoriya Tomova. Asked if her wealth of Wimbledon experience was a key factor, Venus said: "I'd love to have that extra advantage".

"I am happy with how I am hitting the ball and concentration on my own service games and I am able to mix it up on return".
