In other second round matches, top-seed Roger Federer scored a 6-4, 6-4, 6-1 win in 1 hour and 30 minutes over the in-form Lukas Lacko of Slovakia; 13th seed Milos Raonic, a finalist here, beat Aussie John Millman 7-6 (7-4), 7-6 (7-4), 7-6 (7-4). Deadspin reported that Williams had been tested five times in 2018, which is "more than twice" as many times as other top female tennis players in the USA, and also more than the top American male players.

"I told her 'Look, I'm going to stop".

It becomes important in the late innings, especially in the late innings, to step back and fully appreciate what a great American sports story, and great American story, Venus and Serena Williams, out of Compton, Cal., have been. "I don't know if I've ever played her before, so it's always hard to play someone for the first time - I'm sure she's seen me play a lot". It is timed for release as the anticipation crests with Roger as returning champion, 10 years after their famed 2008 Wimbledon championship - an epic match so close and so reflective of their competitive balance that, in the end, the true victor was the sport itself. Unmarried women are addressed as "Miss", and Wimbledon hasn't adopted the neutral term "Ms", which allows women to be addressed formally without being defined by their marital status.

"I literally sat Olympia in my arms, and I talked to her, and we prayed about it", she said. "Now it's several women out there playing".

Centre Court saw three women's matches on Day 2. Joyce Barclay, who reached the women's doubles semifinals at Wimbledon in 1972, is credited with five marriages.

The mother of one said: "I was vegan".

"Do they call Serena "Mrs. Williams"?", she asked before adding, "That's cool".

The seven-times Wimbledon champion made her return to the grass courts of SW19 on Monday, after taking a year away from the game to welcome her first child - who is now 10 months old - with husband Alexis Ohanian.

But the American, the runner-up at Wimbledon a year ago, then won seven games in a row.
