Swiss tennis star Roger Federer will look to continue his winning start to the Wimbledon campaign when he crosses swords with Solvak tennis player Lukas Lacko in the second round of the men's singles event here on Wednesday.

Federer's quest for a ninth Wimbledon crown gained momentum with a flawless 6-4 6-4 6-1 win over Slovakian world No 73 Lacko in 89 minutes.

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. The 36-year-old made quick work of Lukas Lacko, winning 6-4, 6-4, 6-1 in a match that saw the Swiss make only 11 errors.

Number-two seeded Caroline Wozniacki was upset at Wimbledon by 35th-ranked Ekaterina Makarova of Russian Federation.

"I always have this sort of dream, I just want to walk past them and speak to these people to hear their stories".

The win means the eight-time champion has racked up 26 consecutive sets at Wimbledon in a run of nine successive wins spread over this year and last.

Federer fired three of those aces in a row to take the second set and he got his 15,000-strong Centre Court fan club gasping in astonishment as he produced a ridiculous backhand drop shot from behind the baseline.

Five-time Wimbledon champion Venus Williams came back after losing the first set to reach the third round.

"I think she played above her level and really raised it and got a little lucky and played well when she needed to", sniffed Wozniacki who had lost to the 30-year-old in the second round of the U.S. Open last year.
