Federer Conquers Nerves; Murray, Nadal Up Friday at Wimbledon

Federer Conquers Nerves; Murray, Nadal Up Friday at Wimbledon

"I feel holding a trophy or, you know, doing well - it doesn't satisfy me anymore", Tomic said Tuesday. He said: "The person that comes to mind immediately with Novak is not a tennis player, it's actually a golfer, Tiger Woods when he had the issues with the wife and then he seemed to go completely off the rails and has never been close to being the same player".

"If you walk out on the Centre Court, there is a responsibility", Djokovic said, via USA Today.

Once Djokovic broke back thanks to a double fault he took command and was relatively untroubled, although he did have to raise his game in the third set as Gulbis went for broke. "It just took a while to shake it off".

Seven-time champion Roger Federer advanced to the third round at Wimbledon with a straight-set victory over Serbia's Dusan Lajovic here. "I think it's tough to give you definition in couple sentences, or even in a half-an-hour speech", he said.

"It's weird how sometimes you can be way more nervous for a second round than for a final", he said. "Once you're in that kind of flow, I guess, and everything is working perfectly and you're No 1 of the world for many years and winning grand slams and that's the standard you set for yourself, you kind of feel like you're in some kind of machine that keeps rolling".

He played just one tournament - one on clay at that - in the lead-up to Wimbledon after a first round French Open exit. His personal best at the majors is 28, from the quarterfinals at Wimbledon in 2010 to the U.S. Open final that year. Not the way he has been playing this year. It was only the fourth time in his career Federer had won a grand slam tie-break to love.

However, there was a sense of inevitability as the former world number one came out on top in the longest rally of the match which was 24 shots. With twelve Grand Slam singles titles, it is hard to remain the greatest player in the sport for the entirety of a career.

Women's fourth-rounders: five-time champion Venus Williams vs. The 12-time major victor, whose world began to unravel on these courts 12 months ago, weeks after he became the holder of all four Grand Slam titles, has looked distant and disturbed on the tennis court in recent times. He was only able to win 58 percent of the points on his first serve, in contrast to Djokovic who won 80 percent of the points on his first serve. He hasn't just looked dominant this week, he has enjoyed a renaissance in 2017 after a nightmarish 2016 that saw him limited to just seven tournaments after he underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in February.

Sixth seed Canadian Milos Raonic recorded 55 winners on his way to a 7-6 (3) 6-4 7-5 victory over Spaniard Albert Ramos-Vinolas in the third round match on Court One.

Try as they might, the reporters grilling Novak Djokovic couldn't get the three-time Wimbledon champion to criticize John McEnroe for comparing him to Tiger Woods.

"I struggled early on".
