Serena Williams progressed into the third round with a dominant straight-set win over Bulgaria's Viktoriya Tomova.

Meanwhile late on Tuesday, Maria Sharapova suffered her first opening round Wimbledon defeat and earliest Grand Slam exit in eight years when she was shocked by fellow Russian Vitalia Diatchenko, the World No. 132.

In keeping with tradition, as Wimbledon is wont to do, the chair umpire followed the seven-time Wimbledon champion's final triumphant point with the proclamation, "Game, set and match, Mrs. Williams". He makes it look easy, he has so many options, so as he gets older maybe if he loses half a step, it doesn't change how he plays.

After Makarova edged out a tight first set, the Dane looked to have recovered by producing the flawless response, taking the second set 6-1.

US ‘opening fire’ on world with tariff threats, says China
Both Chinese and USA business sources in China said there appeared to be little hope that the tariffs could be averted. The Chinese government has promised to respond with tariffs on equal measure soon after Trump's tariffs go into effect.

"I spend so much time with her every single day".

"Of course, you sometimes play the percentages, but if you do that too much it becomes boring, so I like to mix it up". "I felt good out there, less nerves than in the first round", Federer said. He just secured victory over the US's Tenny Sandgren during the first round of Wimbledon matches.

Wednesday's result increased Federer's streak to 26 straight sets at Wimbledon, equaling his second-best run, which came in 2003-04.

After dropping her first set to Romania's Alexandra Gulgheru, No. 9-seeded Williams bounced back strong to take two decisive back-to-back sets and move on.

Blindfolded and bound bodies found hanging at family home in New Delhi
Detectives are now probing whether the family died by suicide or were killed, he said. A neighbour in the Burari district found the victims early on Sunday, police said.

The showcase was such an oddity that Serena Williams' older sister, Venus, a five-time Wimbledon champion, said she "was really overjoyed" when she saw the schedule.

"I want to be here to focus on tennis, not eating bugs".

French 17th seed Lucas Pouille fell short in five sets after fighting from two sets down to be beaten 6-4, 6-2, 6-7 (8-10), 3-6, 6-2 by Austria's Dennis Novak. I don't go out there expecting to do well, see what happens.

"It's a great feeling to be back, it's been a couple of years since I played on grass, so it is hard trying to find the rhythm".

Priyanka, Nick make couple entry at Ambani's party
But the one that has got everyone hooked to their mobile phones is Nita Ambani's elegant classical style dance performance. Now we just have to wait and watch if all those engagement rumours (for both of the couples, duh) are actually true.

Former world number one Karolina Pliskova finally made it to the third round on her seventh visit to Wimbledon after seeing off two-time Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka 6-3, 6-3.
