While Monday's victory was far from emphatic, it did give Williams, who is seeded 25th despite her lowly ranking, a 15th successive win at Wimbledon as she also triumphed at the All England Club in her last two appearances in 2015 and 2016. I still want to work on getting my first serves in more.

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

The Australian Open champion complained to the chair umpire about the bugs that invaded No. 1 Court after she lost the first set 6-4 against Ekaterina Makarova of Russian Federation.


Wozniacki, who was also troubled by flying ants, said: "I think I did everything I could". Deadspin reported that Williams had been tested five times in 2018, which is "more than twice" as many times as other top female tennis players in the USA, and also more than the top American male players. I fought as hard as I could.

"She played above her level and really raised it and got a little lucky", she added.

After hitting just four winners in the opening set, the 44th-ranked Monfils improved to a total of 49 for the match and reached the third round at the All England Club for the seventh time in his career.

On Centre Court and Court One two women's singles matches entertained the sell-out crowd in each arena, alongside only one men's match in each. That's the goal when you go out to practice, come to the tournaments, is to win your match.


Williams' reluctance to say much seemed to begin in her first news conference here past year when she was repeatedly asked about a auto crash she was involved in where a passenger in the other vehicle died.

Venus Williams overcame a scare to book her place in the third round.

It did not escape the attention of five-time champion Williams, who beat Romanian qualifier Alexandra Dulgheru on Court One to move into the third round.

Madison Keys celebrated Independence Day by beating Thailand's Luksika Kumkhum as she recorded a 6-4 6-3 victory but British hope Katie Swan's run was emphatically ended by 29th seed Mihaela Buzarnescu.
