  • Sweden v Switzerland 12 facts to help you tell them apart

The Dane became 11th women's seed to exit on the first three days of the championship. After 66 minutes, Williams won 6-1, 6-4.

Spare a thought for Kristina Mladenovic, who is next in the crosshairs of seven-time victor Serena Williams.

Play remains suspended on all outer courts due to a spell of rain.

That direction is into the third round without dropping a set, although the 25th seed is yet to be truly tested, despite a trickier first-round encounter against Arantxa Rus. The 30-year-old Makarova took down Wozniacki 6-4, 1-6, 7-5 to bring the Danish star's tournament to a surprisingly quick conclusion.

Wozniacki saved five match points but has now failed to get past the last 16 in 12 visits to the All England Club.

"I mean, it just gives even more props to her, honestly", said Keys, the U.S. Open runner-up a year ago and a French Open semifinalist last month. Not only is she playing like, well, her most capable self, smacking 13 aces while beating Kristina Mladenovic 7-5, 7-6 (2) for a third consecutive straight-set victory, but also the other proven contenders keep losing while she just keeps on keeping on.

"It was better than my first-round match, I'm happy to be going in the right direction", Williams said.

Lukáš Lacko was the victim at Centre Court on Tuesday, falling in three consecutive sets (6-4, 6-4, 6-1) as Federer breezed through him with an utterly imperious serve. "I expected more from the team", Federer said on Wednesday, as quoted on the Sydney Morning Herald. "Lacko can play well on the grass, he's won his fair share of matches".

"It's a wonderful feeling walking out there, I take every match one at a time, I try to put on a good match, try hard every time, and will never underestimate anybody - that keeps me in check".

"I'm happy to be back at Wimbledon".

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. I can't even be mad at myself, because I played up to the level that I can. "I may have to adjust my game in the third round, for a completely different player".

"When you glance at the numbers, the ones that really stand out for me are 48 winners and 11 unforced errors", added the BBC Sport analyst.

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