The top-seeded Federer defeated Slovakian challenger Lukas Lacko in three straight sets to move on, while Williams cruised past Bulgaria's Viktoriya Tomova.

"I think it is important that, when you want to serve well, your point-for-point mentality is right", Federer said.

The American told Omnisport: "He is the favourite [to win Wimbledon] and watching him play, what is remarkable to me is how easy he makes it look after not competing for so long".

Federer made 48 winners against 11 unforced errors and cleaned up in the second set, as he did not drop a single point on his serve.

In total, the eight-time champion lost only nine of 61 points on his serve and broke Lacko five times, including with a forehand victor to close out the match. "Sometimes your serve matches up better against certain players".
