"In fact, I feel like it's stronger, because I've been through so much", she said.

Royalty at Wimbledon is not something new and Serena Williams hopes she can do enough to tempt Meghan Markle to Centre Court.

Poland's Agnieszka Radwanska, the 2012 runner-up, then supplied the late night drama, saving six match points to beat Romanian qualifier Elena-Gabriela Ruse 6-3, 4-6, 7-5. I just wasn't quite used to that level of wind. "If that's testing everyone five times, let's do it. Let's be a part of it".

Wozniacki took 59 minutes to complete the victory on Centre Court, finishing it off with a service victor.

Although Williams did not comment on her legwear, it could very well have served a objective.

Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki cruised into the second round with a 6-0, 6-3 win over American Varvara Lepchenko.

"I'm happy she chose to take that route and not walk away from the game, which would have been totally fine".

Venus Williams, a five-time champion and runner-up past year, made the next round with a 6-7 (3/7), 6-2, 6-1 win against Johanna Larsson of Sweden.

A spokeswoman or Williams told Deadspin earlier that the testing was "invasive and targeted".

She is competing in her second grand slam since giving birth, having reached the fourth round of the French Open before withdrawing with a pectoral injury ahead of a match against old rival Maria Sharapova. She went a few weeks without even attempting to serve, while healing, and insisted she wasn't entirely sure how she'd fare with that stroke Monday.

Overall, coffee drinkers were about 10 percent to 15 percent less likely to die than abstainers during a decade of follow-up. Coffee lovers may not have to feel that familiar pang of guilt when pouring themselves yet another cup of joe for the day.

Still, Williams had her issues.

Vekic, who sealed the upset on her fourth match point, faces Slovakia's Viktoria Kuzmova or Sweden's Rebecca Peterson in the second round.

She took the first set with a well-timed break at 6-5, with Rus serving to take it to a tie-break.

Serena Williams arrived at the 2018 Wimbledon Championships in a look that was far removed from the all-black catsuit she sported at the French Open.

She is back at Wimbledon for the first time as a mom, but Serena Williams was in no mood for nurturing as she blasted her way into the second round.

"It would be impossible for me to not feel some kind of way about that", said Williams, 36. "I was like, 'I haven't seen Olympia.' Like, 'What am I doing?' ..."

"I don't think I ever actually lost that competitive side".

Williams was not the most mobile from the baseline but she was able to dominate from deep, her power enabling her to dictate most of the rallies - the deep forehand cross-court a particularly productive weapon.

Her long-sleeve, flounce-skirt tennis dress femininely contrasted with white court shoes by the Swoosh and thick above-the-ankle socks. We literally do everything. "I remember I struggled early on a lot", said Federer. Something that I would normally be okay with, normally have, 'Oh, this is this.' It's just getting all back to the hang of things, getting used to different circumstances.
