Russian qualifier Vitalia Diatchenko earned a shocking upset win over No.24 seed Maria Sharapova, 6-7 (3), 7-6 (3), 6-4 to reach the second round of Wimbledon for the first time in her career. The 20-year-old underlined his class with a run to his first Wimbledon final, but he wasn't quite ready to take down defending champion Federer, who won 6-0, 7-6, 6-7, 6-3 to avenge his defeat to Nadal in Paris just weeks earlier.

While no financial details were revealed, media reported the new deal will be worth around $30 million a year, compared with the $10 million a year agreement Federer had with Nike.

"Of course in that moment, that final has been a very important step forward for me in my career", said 17-time major victor Nadal.

Venus Williams faced three break points and eventually lost the tenth game of the first set to world number 58 Johanna Larsson of Sweden.

Serena Williams participates in a Wimbledon preview at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in London.

Djokovic, a 12-time Grand Slam champion, will move into the top five for all-time match wins at Wimbledon if he beats Australian Open quarter-finalist, Sandgren.

Victory was sealed on a fifth match point. "Roger's game on grass looks great and, as for Rafa, I know he's not made it past the fourth round here for the past six years, but this year I think it's different".

After impressing in the clay-court swing, the Russian opted not to play a competitive warm-up event - pulling out of the Birmingham Classic for the second year in a row - and she showed signs of rust as her fired-up compatriot took full advantage. I also think it's healthy in a way for me to do what I need to do, be that working mom, then go back home and be the mom. "Life goes on", said Stephens, who was followed out of the tournament by Bulgarian sixth seed Grigor Dimitrov.

But at the same tournament where he played what proved to be his last match of 2017, the 33-year-old was rejuvenated.

Serena Williams doesn't like being away from her daughter, but admits going back to work is "healthy" for her.

The third-seeded Croatian cruised past Japanese player Yoshihito Nishioka 6-1, 6-4, 6-4.

The American returns to the tournament for the first time since claiming a seventh title in 2016 having missed a year ago to give birth to her daughter.

But the Swiss was always going to be a risky floater in the main draw and so it proved as he beat sixth-seeded Bulgarian Dimitrov 1-6 7-6 (7/3) 7-6 (7/5) 6-4.

But Karlovic's Croatian compatriot Borna Coric, who defeated Federer for the Halle title last week, was a first round loser against Russia's Daniil Medvedev 7-6 (8/6), 6-2, 6-2.
