Caroline Wozniacki departs Wimbledon early once again

Caroline Wozniacki oshakes her head to avoid a swarm of insects that swept through the court during Wimbledon action on Wednesday.

Federer's longest streak of sets won at Wimbledon was 34 between the third round in 2005 to the 2006 final.

However, Wozniacki still can't seem to get comfortable at the All England Club - especially when there's a swarm of bugs flying around her head.

The 36-year-old destroyed Slovakia's Lukas Lacko 6-4 6-4 6-1 in 90 minutes on Centre Court. He did not drop a point on his serve in the entire second set and kept that streak going until he was 30-0 up at 4-1 in the third, when Lacko sent a backhand victor down the line.

He said he "felt good" and "less nervous" than he did in his previous match, his first-round win over Dušan Lajović on Monday. "Sometimes your serve matches up better against certain players".

Lacko had no answer for Federer's serve throughout the match, at one point losing 32 straight service points.

Five-time champion Venus Williams once again dropped the opening set but again dominated the rest of the match to win.

Seven-time champion Serena Williams won 6-1 6-4 in just over an hour against Viktoriya Tomova on her first return to Centre Court since winning the title in 2016.

In the first round, she started by conceding a tiebreaker against 58th-ranked Johanna Larsson before taking 12 of the last 15 games.

One of the title favorites did everything right in the opening two sets, scoring four breaks and never facing a break point to move a set away from the triumph. Stan Wawrinka defeated Grigor Dimitrov in the first round but he was in all kind of troubles today, trailing 7-6 6-3 5-6 against Thomas Fabbiano and having a lot of work to be done tomorrow if he wants to make his seventh comeback from two sets to love down and the first in five years!

Juan Martin del Potro improved to 9-0 in the first round of Wimbledon with a 6-3, 6-4, 6-3 win over Peter Gojowczyk of Germany.

Milos Raonic eased past Australia's John Millman in straight sets to book his place in the third round.

Gael Monfils overcame Paolo Lorenzi 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (5), 7-6 (3) to set up a third-round meeting with 2017 Wimbledon semifinalist Querrey.
