Day two at the Wimbledon Championships saw victories for two iconic champions - eight-time winner Roger Federer and seven-time champion Serena Williams.

Defending champion Angelique Kerber also progressed, as did top women's seed Ashleigh Barty.

Third seed and two-time champion Rafael Nadal dropped just seven games on his way to a place in round two, while British fans were rewarded with a straight-sets victory for Johanna Konta.

Nick Kyrgios entertained the crowds and came through a tough five-setter against fellow Aussie Jordan Thompson.

But the run of 2004 champion Maria Sharapova came to a premature end when she was forced to retire in the third set of her first-round clash with Pauline Parmentier.
