Roger Federer just dominated another opponent at the 2018 Wimbledon Championships.

Caroline Wozniacki is heading home early - again.

Williams, however, was rarely challenged on her own serve and is now through to the last 32.

Federer and Williams cruised into the third round with straight-sets victories on Wednesday, looking at home on the Centre Court where they have won 15 titles between them. That match was briefly interrupted by a swarm of flying ants.

Federer wasn't the only former champion in peak form on Centre Court as seven-time victor Serena routed Bulgarian qualifier Viktoriya Tomova 6-1, 6-4.

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.

Williams was almost as good, losing just five of 32 points on her first serve in a 6-1, 6-4 win over Viktoriya Tomova. Makarova, who had lost seven of her previous eight meetings with Wozniacki, is hoping to emulate her run to the Wimbledon quarter-finals four years ago. Not wasting too much energy in the first matches is nice to have. Speaking at a press conference ahead of the tournament, Serena spoke about the tough decision to stop breastfeeding her only daughter, who goes by her middle name Olympia, in order to return to her world-class athletic form.

On Court One, Serena's sister Venus Williams had to recover from a set down in successive contests to prevail 4-6, 6-0, 6-1 against Romania's Alexandra Dulgheru for a place in the third round.

In the first round, she started by conceding a tiebreaker against 58th-ranked Johanna Larsson before taking 12 of the last 15 games.

The 36-year-old took some time to get up to speed, but overcame Arantxa Rus of the Netherlands 7-5 6-3 in her quest for an eighth Wimbledon title. While Donna Vekic beat Rebecca Peterson 7-5 6-4 and Yanina Wickmayer saw off Andrea Petkovic 6-4 6-3.
