When is Roger Federer's next match?

When is Roger Federer's next match?

The 36-year-old left-handed Spaniard had equalled the mark set by Roger Federer at Roland Garros.

Roger Federer was still wearing Nike kit as recently as last month.

The top seed stepped out onto Centre Court for his match against Serbian world No 58 Lajovic in a Uniqlo-branded outfit, signalling an end to his long-term association with Nike.

Last year's semifinalist Magdalena Rybarikova has become the first seeded player to exit Wimbledon.

Now that she's "Mrs. Williams", per the Wimbledon chair umpire, now that she's a mother, now that she is back on tour, Serena Williams is ready to rediscover her full complement of shots and full ability to dominate.

Three-time victor Novak Djokovic, meanwhile, is still struggling with form and confidence so badly bruised by the elbow injury he suffered at Wimbledon 12 months ago.

The Swiss was in imperious form as he continued the tradition of the defending men's champion opening up Monday's play on Centre Court.

And the 20-time grand slam victor could probably get away without washing his new shirt, barely breaking into a sweat as he dispatched his Serbian opponent in double-quick time.

All England Club chief executive Richard Lewis calls two-time champion Andy Murray's absence from Wimbledon "a shame" and "disappointing", but adds: "The show must go on".

Croatia Eliminate Iceland to Complete Perfect Group Stage Run, Win Group D
The Iceland defender Sverrir Ingason almost scored twice just moments later, heading just over and then again off the crossbar. Croatia will now meet Denmark in the Round of 16 on Sunday 1 July in Nizhny Novgorod, the same venue where they beat Argentina.


Where do I watch the matches live on television? I was aware that most of the guys who were playing great at Queen's were also continuing to play again over here.

Murray's 2013 title at Wimbledon was the first for a British male in 77 years.

The Americans had a strong outing on Day 1.

The Swiss, who beat Marin Cilic in last year's final, will play either Lukas Lacko or Benjamin Bonzi in the second round.

Eight-time champion Roger Federer breezed into the Wimbledon second round on Monday with a 6-1, 6-3, 6-4 win over Serbia's Dusan Lajovic.

In a statement, a spokesperson for Nike said they "do not comment on athlete contracts".

Federer is the overwhelming favourite to lift a ninth title and 21st career major especially with old rival Rafael Nadal, fresh from an 11th French Open, not having played a grass court warm-up event.

There seems to be little chance of any rain delays, with the forecast calling for sunny skies and temperatures of up to 86 degrees (30 C).
