"I feel like everyone says, 'You're so thin when you breastfeed, '" she said in a news conference on Sunday; however, even after training intensely and following a strict vegan diet, Williams says she wasn't seeing the post-baby weight loss results she wanted to be able to perform her best on the court.

"Of course, you sometimes play the percentages, but if you do that too much it becomes boring, so I like to mix it up".

With flying ants stuck in Wozniacki's hair and dive-bombing her throughout the match, the former world number one asked the umpire if there was something that could be sprayed to keep the bugs away. "From my end, I'm very happy".

"I want to be here to focus on tennis, not eating bugs". The 30-year-old has twice made the semi-finals at a major - both at the US Open.

American Serena Williams cruised to a straight set victory over Viktoriya Tomova on Wednesday to advance to the third round at Wimbledon.

Just like in the opening match, Roger was the dominant figure on the court, firing 16 aces and dropping just nine points in his games, never facing a break point just like against Lajovic in the opening match.

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. "But I told myself "no, you are not going to lose this match".

A year ago, Buzarnescu was ranked 213 and lost in Wimbledon qualifying - yet now she will face Czech seventh seed Karolina Pliskova for a place in the last 16.

The Canadian 13th seed prevailed 7-6 (7/4) 7-6 (7/4) 7-6 (7/4), relying on his bullet serve to emerge victorious from a predictably attritional Court Two contest.

She is back at Wimbledon for the first time as a mom, but Serena Williams was in no mood for nurturing as she blasted her way into the second round.
