"Not only do I expect to win", she said Monday after picking up a victory in her first match at the All England Club in two years, "I expect to win emphatically". They are my initials.

Swiss tennis icon Roger Federer made his Wimbledon 2018 debut donning Uniqlo, a Japanese clothing company brand, indicating the end of a partnership with Nike.

Sports news site ESPN reported the price tag of Federer's new deal, but Uniqlo has not shared the specific terms.

Vekic, who played in three grass-court tournaments coming into Wimbledon, won the next three games, moving nervelessly along the baseline and punishing less-than-pinpoint serves with bullet-like returns.

"The tougher balance, for me, is to be able to spend time away from my son and be OK with taking, sometimes, time for myself, which is a struggle sometimes, because I really want to spend every second with him", said Azarenka, who faces No. 7 seed Karolina Pliskova next.

"When I was about to break the record, I thought, wow, I'm going to beat Federer at something", the 36-year-old Lopez told reporters after his 159th Grand Slam singles match.

Federer insists that he has not had a full divorce from Nike - hence the USA company's shoes on the feet of the 20-time grand slam victor.

"I was excited to wear Uniqlo today".

It was good enough to finish second in the voting for this season's Kia MVP, an award he's already won four times previously. Moving to L.A. will also help James expand his business interests and allow his children to attend high-profile schools.

Swiss tennis legend Roger Federer is still looking for a new shoe contract but says he has had interest from former sponsor Nike.

But with both players experiencing career resurgences since the start of last year, Navratilova believes an encounter between the duo could realistically happen this month - and it would remarkably be 10 years on from their last meeting in the final.

Third seeded Marin Cilic, the runner-up to Federer in 2017 and this year's Queen's champion, takes on Japan's Yoshihito Nishioka.

Wozniacki breezed past Varavara Lepchenko 6-0, 6-3, Pliskova defeated Harriet Dart 7-6 (7/2), 2-6, 6-1 and Williams won 6-7 (3/7), 6-2, 6-2 against Johanna Larsson.

"They have shown interest to have a shoe deal with me, as well". Interestingly enough, Federer was still wearing Nike sneakers during his match.

Diatchenko stood her ground and leveled the match in a second tie-break of the evening, continuing to play catch-up in the decider as Sharapova broke serve in the third and seventh games.

Brand ambassador speak: "I am deeply committed to tennis and to winning championships".

"It's a great feeling to be back, it's been a couple of years since I played on grass, so it is hard trying to find the rhythm".
