Day Three of Wimbledon saw men’s singles favourite Roger Federer in action as well as 2016 finalist Milos Raonic.
Following on from England’s footballing victory last night, the mood around SW19 was a positive one.
With Andy Murray announcing the news that he will miss this year’s tournament, his brother Jamie took the spotlight with a big announcement.
You can find all the weird and wonderful stories from Day Three of Wimbledon in our daily round-up:
Roger Federer turns on the style to progress
Roger Federer produced a tennis masterclass as he brushed aside Lukas Lacko in straight sets (6-4 6-4 6-1) on centre court.
That’s two matches and two straight-set victories for number one seed Federer as the favourite approaches his 37th birthday.
Milos Raonic stutters into third round
2016 Wimbledon runner-up Milos Raonic was given a tough test by Australian John Millman.
The Canadian won three tie-breaks to secure a hard-fought 7-6 (7-4) 7-6 (7-4) 7-6 (7-4) victory.
He got the job done in the end but knows that he can’t do the same in the next round against Dennis Novak.
Venus Williams powers into third round
Venus Williams suffered an early scare in her match with Alexandra Dulgheru as she lost the first set, but she won the next two to ensure she progresses into the next round.
She admitted she wasn’t at her best but hopes she will be when she faces either Kiki Bertens or Anna Blinkova next.
World number two Caroline Wozniacki was less fortunate, however. As a swarm of flying ants seemed to engulf Court Number One, the Dane was defeated in three sets by Ekaterina Makarova of Russia. Despite winning her first Grand Slam in Australia this year, the 27-year-old will go no further at SW19 this year.
Jamie Murray announces mixed doubles partner
Jamie Murray will defend his Wimbledon mixed doubles crown this year alongside former world number one Victoria Azarenka.
Murray was initially going to skip the event but has now decided that he wants to retain his crown.
Laura Robson has World Cup fever
Great British star Laura Robson isn’t playing in Wimbledon this year but she’s spending her time wisely by watching the football world cup.
Apparently, she was singing “it’s coming home” for two and a half hours after England won Colombia on penalties. That’s the spirit, Laura!
Swan's song ends in round two
The 19-year-old British wildcard Katie Swan turned in a mammoth effort to win her first Grand Slam match on Monday, beating Irina-Camelia Begu to claim a spot in round two. Awaiting the prospect though was #29 seed Mihaela Buzărnescu of Romania. A 6-0 6-3 victory was wrapped up in one hour and fourteen minutes, and Swan will need to search for the positives ahead of another attempt next year.
