Wozniacki is still waiting to get past the round of 16 for the first time, despite fighting back from 5-1 down in the third set and saving four match points at 5-3.

At one point, Federer had won 35 consecutive points on his serve as Lacko simply struggled to contend with the reigning and defending Wimbledon champion.

Serena Williams of the United States returns to Viktoriya Tomova of Bulgaria during their third round match at Wimbledon on Wednesday.
