'My rhythm is back'

Angelique Kerber on BBC Two: "She [Flipkens] played well, going to the net and playing old tennis serve and volley.

"But I did a good job today, the last few games in the second set, I played some really good tennis and feel my rhythm is back and I am fighting for every single point."

"John McEnroe, if you started playing again, what would your world ranking be...in the women's game?"

Oh heck, it's all kicking off on 6-love-6.

That was so enjoyable, what a fabulous match to watch, full of creativity and flair. We saw volleys, we saw some unbelievable drop shots from both of them. Great fun. Kerber battled so hard and ran so much.

Game, set and match

Kerber 7-5 7-5 Flipkens

Sealed with a lob, top seed Angelique Kerber is through.

The players embrace at the net, both smiling. That's great to see. They both some great stuff at the end.

Court One stands to applaud both from the arena.

*Kerber 7-5 6-5 Flipkens

First break point saved by Kerber with a sensational drop shot.

This is terrific stuff now.

Oh. What was I saying?

Flipkens misses a sitter of a volley and that brings up match point for the world number one...

*Kerber 7-5 6-5 Flipkens

Kerber is apologising but I don't think she means it as she clips the tape with a forehand and the ball dribbles over.

Kirsten Flipkens
BBC

Flipkens picks up the ball and gives it a stern talking to.

The Belgian is much happier now! What a volley. Break point to Flipkens...

'A1 shot from Federer'

There's making your opponent move around the court and then there's Roger sending his opponent into the stands.

'A1 from Federer'

Kerber breaks again

*Kerber 7-5 6-5 Flipkens

Angelique Kerber may be a little annoyed she isn't back in the locker room by now after missing that chance to serve this out.

She rattles a return right onto the shoelaces of her opponent and Flipkens can do nothing with it. That's the way to take out your frustration.

It brings up break point and again the German gets the ball to awkwardly dip low to Flipkens at the net.

Kerber breaks. She'll serve for the match for a second time.

'It will be another great day in the Federer house'

More from Roger Federer: "My parents support me and see me play often and today they were delighted to be invited into the royal box. They were with Tim Henman’s parents and the Middletons' - who they have got to know over the years.

"I can relax on a day off tomorrow, it's one of those days where everyone will understand that I can lie on my couch and relax and watch tennis and not play with my kids as much as I normally do.

"But I’m sure it will be another great day in the Federer house."

It was his second serve but he serves out with an ace to clinch match point, what else?

'I couldn't get rid of the nerves'

Roger Federer speaking on BBC Two: "I struggled early on, I couldn’t get rid of the nerves and struggled to find my rhythm. I got back into the game after that and broke him; I started to play freely.

"I should feel comfortable here, and I do, but the problem is on grass if you’re struggling it can take a while. I wasn’t too worried.

"Nerves are a funny thing, sometimes you get horribly nervous and other times it’s a piece of cake. I'm happy it happened in the second round."

  • Azarenka v Watson (13:00 BST)

Flipkens breaks back

Kerber 7-5 5-5 Flipkens*

Maybe there is more in this match?!

Flipkens puts away a smash to bring up two break points.

"Come on," she roars to the crowd.

And she does takes the first break point! On we go!

Peter Fleming

Seven-time Grand Slam doubles champion on BBC TV

Roger Federer has the willingness to rest, to take time off and to keep his life in balance. I think that is what he does better than anyone else.

*Kerber 7-5 5-4 Flipkens

Kirsten Flipkens holds her serve. Is that just delaying victory for Kerber or can the Belgian keep her hopes alive?

World number one Angelique Kerber will now serve for the match...

Roger waves goodbye to the adoring Centre Court crowd.

He's booked a place in the third round against Mischa Zverev - the world number 30.

Kerber closes on victory

Kerber 7-5 5-3 Flipkens*

Kirsten Flipkens is a set and a break down but isn't giving up and gets a mouth full of grass for her trouble as she dives in vain at the net.

Both of these players are playing at a really high level now. Flipkens sprints back to retrieve a lob before Kerber thumps away the following shot from just inside the baseline.

The world number one is now a game away from the third round. The crowd want more. They're impressed and are letting it be known.

Game, set and match - Federer

Lajovic 6-7 (0-7) 3-6 2-6 Federer

Ninety minutes up. Three match points.

Serve out with an ace? Why not, eh?

Roger Federer's winning moment

Lajovic 6-7 (0-7) 3-6 2-5 Federer*

Rumour has it it's thundering over SW19. Eeeeek, go away, pesky storms.

The duo on court don't seem perterbed by the weather. Lajovic holds and Federer will serve for the match.

*Lajovic 6-7 (0-7) 3-6 1-5 Federer

The crowd coo in unison as Roger Federer lands a series of gorgeous shots - including a backhand volley in mid-air.

Not bad for a 35-year-old.

He holds to love.

Federer breaks again

Lajovic 6-7 (0-7) 3-6 1-4 Federer*

Another game, another chance to break for Federer.

The Swiss snatches it when Lajovic nets...again.

The seven-time champion is cruising into the third round as it stands.

Alan Vickers: I think Roger has got a table booked tonight for 8pm.

Luthando Ezra Mbaza: There are not many things more beautiful than @rogerfederer backhand.

*Lajovic 6-7 (0-7) 3-6 1-3 Federer

Despite being two sets and a break down, Lajovic is still enjoying some decent moments - including a sensational backhand into the corner, and an 81 mph return.

But he can only backhand into the net as Federer holds once again.

Kerber breaks

Kerber 7-5 4-2 Flipkens*

World number one Angelique Kerber is starting to assert her authority on this match now.

She hits two winners en route to claiming the first break of serve in this second set.

The German is looking more confident as a result. A clench of the fist towards her box.

Flipkens meanwhile is seeing a few too many unforced errors come from her racquet.

Game, set and match - Raonic

Phew. That was a tough shift for sixth seed Milos Raonic.

He needs four sets and almost three hours to see off Russian veteran Mikael Youzhny.

Youzhny bungled a set point at 5-4 in the fourth, Raonic fighting back to hold then break in the next game.

His 27th ace of the match seals victory, before he faces a more enjoyable battle... past the selfie hunters outside. Lots of screaming teenage girls. It's like a One Direction concert.

One of the things that makes Federer great is that he doesn't need perfection now, he doesn't need it yesterday. He's patient in allowing himself to grow into a tournament. He doesn't need to play his best tennis today, that needs to happen next week. He just needs to win.

Lajovic 6-7 (0-7) 3-6 1-2 Federer*

Federer quickly chows down on Lajovic's service game like a hungry hippo.

The Serb coughs up another break point but Federer can only loft the ball over the baseline. Deuce.

Lajovic lands an ace to take the advantage and holds when Federer hits long again. Double break of serve: denied

'How about that'

Federer delivers an impressive shot during the second set against Dusan Lajovic.

'How about that' - amazing Federer winner

Milos Raonic

It wasn't straightforward but last year's runner-up Milos Raonic is into the third round with a four-set win over Mikhail Youzhny.

He seals the match with an ace - his 27th of the match.

You can't discount any player with a weapon like that.

*Lajovic 6-7 (0-7) 3-6 0-2 Federer

The crowd coo as Lajovic gets some hefty spin on a volley which lands dead at Federer's feet.

And then cheers ring out as Federer pops the ball over on to the sidelines and Lajovic goes flying into the stands trying to chase it.

He manages to stop himself before stacking it, luckily.

Federer carries on regardless and holds.

'A1 from Federer'

Federer breaks

Lajovic 6-7 (0-7) 3-6 0-1 Federer*

Dusan Lajovic has never reached the third round of Wimbledon before and he's got a fight on his hands to make it this year.

After exchanging backhands, the Serb slams into the net for 30-30 and then fires past the baseline to hand Federer a sneak break point.

Lajovic grabs a new racquet but it doesn't do him any good. Another effort goes long. Federer breaks.

Game and second set - Federer

Lajovic 6-7 (0-7) 3-6 Federer

Federer has three set points to play with.

The first one is wasted when he nets, but he doesn't throw away another. A controlling forehand winner gives the Swiss a 2-0 lead after only an hour and eight minutes in play.

Has he got dinner reservations to make?

Federer's 'peach' of a shot from second set

*Kerber 7-5 1-2 Flipkens

Kirsten Flipkens needs to change things up a little if she is going to get back into this match against world number one Angelique Kerber.

The opening three games of the set all stay on serve.

What's the answer? Flipkens decides it is a change of eyewear. Off go the sunglasses on come a similar pair but with a clear lens.
