  • Rafael Nadal Wimbledon Roger Federer

He was clinical against the 57th-ranked Sandgren who was making his Wimbledon debut and who had played only one Tour match on grass prior to arriving in London.

Federer, Djokovic and Nadal have been mostly immune to the chaos that's struck Wimbledon in the first two rounds; they've all survived so far. But I am happy more or less with the forehand.

Djokovic's work on court itself was rather straightforward, as he beat Zeballos 6-1 6-2 6-3, though there was a slight concern as he called the trainer on court to massage his left thigh.

Kvitova was the bookmakers' favourite for the women's title at the All England Club after an impressive return to form this year.

"I'm back, it's always good, I'm thinking to win and actually enjoy this time more", Muguruza said. "I've never played him before, so it took a little bit of time to kind of get used to his pace and rhythm".

Djokovic could face British No. 1 Kyle Edmund on Saturday. The 20-year-old Tiafoe relied on a strong serve to win 7-6 (6), 7-6 (5), 3-6, 6-3 over the Spanish veteran and reach the second round for the second straight year. Kyrgios fired a career-best 42 aces in a win over Denis Istomin.

Fourth-seeded Alexander Zverev of Germany also advanced, beating James Duckworth of Australia 7-5, 6-2, 6-0.

French Open runner-up and seventh seed Dominic Thiem retired with an injury from his Wimbledon first round match on Tuesday against Cypriot veteran Marcos Baghdatis.

And No. 10 David Goffin was bounced by Australian Matt Ebden 6-4, 6-3, 6-4. Sock has just five match wins on the year.

The 18-time Grand Slam singles victor Martina Navratilova praised Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in a column for the London Evening Standard.

Meanwhile, Stan Wawrinka has to erase a two-set deficit against Thomas Fabbiano to advance.
