"It was great to be back on Centre Court. But I believe that more players clearly would finish their matches", said Federer who is bidding for a record eighth Wimbledon title. Of course you never like to end a match this way. I feel for the crowd. "They're there to watch good tennis, proper tennis".

Former top-10 player Ernests Gulbis has won a match for the first time in more than a year.

"If I win, I have a day off, maybe I will feel better on Thursday".

Of course, I would love to win every single tennis match I play in, but I don't try to take that as a very essential moment in my life, which determines my happiness. "Now we'll see how far I can go".

Djokovic was leading Martin Klizan 6-3 2-0 when the Slovakian succumbed to a calf injury before Alexandr Dolgopolov pulled the plug in his first-round match at 6-3 3-0 down to Federer.

The 30-year-old Serb will face Adam Pavlasek of the Czech Republic for a place in the last 32.

While tournament favourites Murray and Nadal cruised through to the second round, Wawrinka became the first big upset of the tournament, crashing out at the hands of 6-4, 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 at the hands of Russian Daniil Medvedev.

"If they did, I think it's okay that they walk on court".

The Swiss great, who claimed Grand Slam No 18 after a gap of nearly five years at the Australian Open earlier this year, faces Ukrainian Alexandr Dolgopolov in the third match on Centre Court hoping to win his first title at the All England Club since 2012. Her 36 wins in 2017 is already five more than she managed in the total of 2016.

Last year's runners-up were up first on the main showcourts at Wimbledon on Tuesday, and both came through in straight sets.

The German has failed to maintain that form this season and her poor run culminated in an embarrassing French Open first round loss to Ekaterina Makarova last month. It's a different approach, but I'm still here and I'm still motivated, I still keep on going. On No. 1 Court, Milos Raonic defeated Jan-Lennard Struff of Germany 7-6 (5), 6-4, 7-6 (4).

Juan Martin del Potro overcame a battling Thanasi Kokkinakis to seal a 6-3 3-6 7-6 (7-2) 6-4 victory and reach the second round.

Bernard Tomic claimed he was "bored" during his 6-4 6-3 6-4 first-round exit to Mischa Zverev. The Umpire hastily declares "Game-Set-Match Federer", before taking his jacket off and rushing to another court to play the brilliant shots he just saw Roger making.
