KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Roger Federer's quest for a ninth Wimbledon crown gained momentum with a flawless 6-4, 6-4, 6-1 second-round win over the Slovakian world No 73 Lukas Lacko in 89 minutes.

She is now the only woman left in the draw who has won the trophy at the All England Club, after her older sister, five-time champion Venus, lost to No. 20 Kiki Bertens 6-2, 6-7 (5), 8-6 on Friday, joining defending champion Garbine Muguruza, two-time victor Petra Kvitova and 2004 champ Maria Sharapova as Week 1 departures. But sister Venus had to fight back to beat Alexandra Dulgheru in the second round.

Federer, who recently won his 98th title by defeating his Canadian opponent Milos Raonic in straight sets in the finals of Stuttgart Open, has spent two consecutive weeks on the grass court in the build-up to the Wimbledon.

Federer will play Ivo Karlovic or Jan-Lennard Struff in the fourth round.

"It was better than the first round. It will be much more of a strategic match, I believe, the way Mannarino plays", Federer said.

"I'm not there yet but expect to get there not only for Wimbledon, but for tournaments in the future".

Seven-time champion Serena Williams proved too powerful for Bulgaria's Viktoriya Tomova in a 6-1 6-4 win as she continued her steady progress on her return to Wimbledon, having missed last year's event after taking a maternity leave. He won 40 of 43 first-serve points, never faced a break chance, and delivered 16 aces.

Agassi, a victor of eight grand slam titles in a stellar career, is at a loss to explain Federer's incredible achievements.

In total, the eight-time champion lost just nine of 61 points on his serve and broke Lacko five times, including with a forehand victor to close out the match.
