Wimbledon 2018: Roger Federer eases to win over Dusan Lajovic

In the women's section, meanwhile, Serena Williams returns after missing Wimbledon a year ago while she was pregnant.

Wozniacki took 59 minutes to complete the victory on Centre Court, finishing it off with a service victor.

Williams found herself in a bit of a jam against 105th-ranked Arantxa Rus of the Netherlands, down by a break in the second set on a windy afternoon. The girl was holding a banner saying, "Roger can I have your headband please!"

And he's apparently ready to oblige.

"So the "RF" logo is with Nike at the moment, but it will come to me at some point", Federer said.

Federer's deal with Nike expired in March, and his new look is a major switch for the tennis world.

The only things unfamiliar about Federer were his clothes.

The fourth seeded Sloane Stephens suffered an upset in the hands of Donna Vekic of Croatia 6/3; 6/2 while Madison Keys defeated Australia's Tomljanovic 6/4; 6/2.

According to a Forbes article published last August, Federer was taking home $10m a year from Nike which means his Uniqlo deal is three times more lucrative.

The 22-year-old Croat next faces Viktoria Kuzmova of Slovakia or Rebecca Peterson of Sweden.

American Sam Querrey, who lost to Cilic in the semifinals previous year, also advanced in straight sets. And then, a five-game run and 25 minutes later, Williams had completed the 7-5, 6-3 result. She reached the third round of Wimbledon in 2014. She next faces Evgeniya Rodina of Russian Federation or Antonia Lottner of Germany.

Three-time victor Novak Djokovic, meanwhile, is still struggling with form and confidence so badly bruised by the elbow injury he suffered at Wimbledon 12 months ago.

Former World No1 Karolina Pliskova narrowly avoided a shock defeat to Wimbledon debutant Harriet Dart on Court 12 on the opening day of the Championships.

The 20-time Grand Slam victor had been one of Nike's most high-profile ambassadors.

Wimbledon 2018 will be played from 2-15 July at the All England Club.

Also my technique. I play quite easy, so I don't make a huge effort in every single shot that I play. I was aware that most of the guys who were playing great at Queen's were also continuing to play again over here.

On Monday, he began his title defense in style after brushing aside Serbian Dusan Lajovic 6-1, 6-3, 6-4 in the first round.
