The grass is always greener in the Wimbledon frontcourt.

Zverev certainly played his part in the match and briefly had Federer under pressure late in the first set.

Continuing his quest for an eighth Wimbledon crown, Federer flashed 61 winners, including 13 aces, against just seven errors in a sharp one hour, 49 minute victory.

From the second set on, Federer was in complete control.

One of the few genuine serve-volleyers left in the game, Zverev stunned Andy Murray in the fourth round of the Australian Open before losing to Federer. "You'll always see some lobs, passing shots and drop shots", said Federer after a fifth win over Zverev, three of which have come this year. "As I said, try to be the best father I can be, the best husband I can be". "I'm very happy on my end".

Federer, 35, has won a record 18 Grand Slam titles, and many believe he'll get his 19th at Wimbledon.

The Swiss had to take the first set via a tie-break with the 27th seed ensuring that his illustrious opponent was forced to battle to gain the ascendancy.

"I love red meat", she said. "Maybe I'll play even better", he warned Djokovic.

All it took was a couple of questionable calls for Novak Djokovic to snap at the chair umpire in the second game of his third-round match at Wimbledon.

He did, however, have a minor wobble in the first set that sent it to a tiebreak. That was definitely a key moment.

Djokovic shrugged his shoulders as he didn't know the meaning of the word manic, apt really as holding court in the main Wimbledon press room he looked the picture of controlled focus. The serve is clearly important.

'So, yeah, I mean, I'm pretty positive.

The German top seed faces Shelby Rogers of the United States, who is on her best-ever Wimbledon run by making it to the third round.

"It was a friendly talk between Mario and I. First of all, I spoke to Andre and he absolutely agreed with Mario being that second person who might potentially be spending a little bit more time with me on the road". Then see how it goes.

Court 8: (10) R Ha rrison (US ) & M Venus (NZ ) v (6) I Dodig (Cro) & M Granollers (Sp), M Ninomiya (Jpn) & R Voracova (Cz) v (5) L Hrad ecka (Cz) & K Siniakova (Cz), (15) M Venus (NZ ) & B Krejc ikova (Cz) v M Elgin (Rus) & A Rodionova (A).

"I'm delighted with the performance today". Querrey came back out the next day and capped off one of the biggest upsets of that season.

If Federer gets by Grigor Dimitrov tomorrow, he has to face the victor of Milos Raonic and Alexander Zverev to get to the semis.

Dudi Sela's Wimbledon adventure ended in disappointing fashion in the third round on Saturday after he was forced to retire while trailing Grigor Dimitrov by two sets. It should be noted that they only met once on the big stage, in 2016 at Australian Open when Federer won in four sets and they haven't met since. It was, in short, what grass-court tennis is all about.

"As soon as you give a guy like Novak the tools to step on the gas, he will step on the gas", said Gulbis, who has been a top-10 player and a French Open semifinalist but missed chunks of time because of injuries, dropping his ranking outside the top 500. "He's at the ideal age right now". Kerber faces Shelby Rogers of the US, while Muguruza plays Sorana Cirstea of Romania. Here I will break down what I saw as the key events of week one and make some predictions for week two based off what I've seen so far.

Four games into the match, Federer showed his racquet wizardry.
