LONDON, (Reuters) – Top seed Roger Federer’s bid for a ninth Wimbledon title gathered momentum after he cruised into the third round with a 6-4 6-4 6-1 win over Slovakian world number 73 Lukas Lacko yesterday. The 36-year-old Swiss did not face a single break point and struck 48 winners as he extended his winning streak to 26 successive sets at the All England Club.The Swiss defending champion has now won 26 consecutive sets at the All England Club.“I felt good, less nervous than in the first round,” Federer said. “Lacko can play well on the grass, he’s won his fair share of matches. Not wasting too much energy in the first matches is nice to have. From my end I’m very happy.”Seven-times champion Serena Williams fired 24 winners past Bulgarian Viktoriya Tomova to post a convincing 6-1 6-4 victory in 66 minutes on Centre Court.“It was better than my first-round match, I’m happy to be going in the right direction,” Williams said. “I’m getting there, I’m not there yet but I expect to get there not only for Wimbledon but for tournaments in the future.”
