The US Open will introduce the 25-second clock in the main draw for the first time this year and Wimbledon chief Richard Lewis admitted the change would "probably happen", although he confessed that he was in no rush to install it.

It was the second successive year that Federer had knocked out the Serb at Wimbledon. I felt like I was dealing with it really, really nicely, and it gave me great confidence for this year coming back on grass. "I think he was disappointed", Goffin said - but happy enough on court later, when he survived a minor scare to beat the American qualifier Christian Harrison in four sets on an outside court.

The most prestigious Grand Slam tournament of the year got underway on Monday, as Roger Federer bids to claim an unprecedented ninth Wimbledon title.

"I felt very good from the start which is nice", Federer, who has now one 24 consecutive sets at the All England Club after blazing to the title past year without dropping one, said on court.

Djokovic is looking for his fourth Wimbledon title, while Sandgren - who reached the Australian Open quarterfinals - was making his debut in the tournament. "Feliciano and me, we go way back to the Junior European Championships under-16 here in Hatfield, all the way to today".

What a fighter! We wish her the best for the tournament!

Elsewhere, Sam Querrey, the American 11th seed who made the semi-finals past year, saw off Australia's Jordan Thompson 6-2, 6-4, 6-3.

For Colombia , doubts still persist over whether star man James Rodriguez will be fit to start for the South Americans in Moscow. The 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation is heating up nicely. "Davinson's a great player, a great guy as well", Alli said .

Third seeded Marin Cilic, the runner-up to Federer in 2017 and this year's Queen's champion, takes on Japan's Yoshihito Nishioka.

Federer, 36, never faced a break point and showed off the full repertoire of shots that has made him the most successful male player at Wimbledon.

Thirteenth-seeded Milos Raonic is also through to the second round after a comfortable 7-5, 6-0, 6-1 victory over British wildcard Liam Broady.

Bulgarian sixth seed Grigor Dimitrov, a semi-finalist in 2014, completed the programme against three-time major victor Stan Wawrinka.

On Sunday, he turned up at the traditional champion's pre-tournament news conference at the All England Club in a white shirt, grey blazer and navy pants instead of the usual tennis whites he has sported in previous years.

Serena's fellow tennis-playing mother, Victoria Azarenka, a former world number one and two-time semi-finalist, defeated Ekaterina Alexandrova of Russian Federation 7-6 (7/4), 6-3. But the good news is that it will come with me at one point.

No. 16 seed Borna Coric became the highest-seeded male to exit Wimbledon on Day 1 when he lost 7-6 (6), 6-2, 6-2 to Daniil Medvedev.
